Watched "Lost in Space" on Netflix... I liked it. Certainly better than the reboot done most recently with Friend's Joey. Good production, good/decent acting, and otherwise very enjoyable.

Not reading much these days. Gotta do something about that. :?

Listening to: "How Did You Love?" by Shinedown. A little different than my normal musical fare, but I'm enjoying it. Some excellent lyrical quality, in my opinion.

I saw the preview and am interested, but haven't had the time to sit down with it. Perhaps on Friday.

I've heard mixed things about it, but I'll probably watch the first episode and see. I did the same for Altered Carbon, and it just didn't grab me. :\

Listening: John Carpenter Anthology, lots of jazz (mostly fusion), the sound of my new work keyboard which has major clickety-clack CherryMX switches :D

I loved Altered Carbon although it was more because I loved the books and the visualization of the tv series. I thought the tv show had a lightly different slant than the books but I just automatically filled in all the missing pieces as i watched. I don't know how someone who never read the books would take it. Now "The Expanse" is an awesomer (is that a word?) show and keeps the feel of the books.

RE: Lost in Space

I got about three episodes in before I lost interest. It became much less space adventure and much more drama. I guess if someone never watched the original and was expecting drama it would be okay. But as campy as it was, the original was a space adventure and, to be frank, I was expecting a space adventure (though cooler and more edgy).

Watching: Just watched Ascension on Netflix. I was expecting a drama, and wow, it was great.
Listening: Birds chirping outside my window.
