Tater’s Thursday Thoughts

Yesterday, I decided I was going to stop thinking about upgrading this blog and just upgrade to the premium version of wordpress.com. I know there are a lot of articles out there that say there are better options, but the one thing they said was good about what I did is that it is easy and doesn’t require much from the user. That was what I was looking for because I have no idea how to do most of the stuff that would come with migrating and this means I can just keep doing what I’ve been doing. Of course, now I feel pressured to post more. If I’m paying for it, I need to make it worthwhile. So be prepared to see more rambling posts for now.

As I type, it is pouring down rain again. It seems these days we either have drought or we have flood conditions. I really miss the days of a light, steady rain that gives the lawns and gardens the water they need. We really don’t need 3-6″ of rain every time it rains followed by weeks of drought. I also don’t like the days of cloudy, rainy weather because it does affect my mood and no one wants me crankier than I already am.

I have been posting about TV recently and have said a little bit about some of the new shows I have tried. Below is a list of what I’e watched and what I think:

Kevin Can Wait – typical laugh track heavy sitcom. Not horrible, but the laugh track is too much. Not bad as a time killer if nothing else is on.

Speechless – a really good, laugh track free comedy. We laugh a lot while watching this one.

Designated Survivor – I really like this one. A mix of mystery, political drama and family drama. Well done show.

Lethal Weapon – A lot better than I expected. Very funny and good action scenes.

Pitch – Also very good, but my wife thinks the premise will get old fast

Macgyver – mediocre at best. could improve, but not a good start.

This is Us – I watched because I was curious about the twist. It was very good, but I’m not sure it is a show for me.

The Good Place – another one that is pretty funny, but another with a premise that may not be sustainable.

I will be trying Timeless, Conviction and Frequency once they air and will report here.

  1. I like the look! The colors don’t shout at me, always a good thing. I’m not sure about the two-column format, though it’s better than one really wide column would be. I just find it awkward when the second column is aligned with the headline. Just my opinion, and it’s not really a bad thing.

    Thanks for the recap of the shows you’ve watched. I may have to look at Speechless, but I don’t remember what it’s about. No short-term memory here.
