My Week in Books, Movies, and TV 1/28/22

Everything is out of whack this week with the combination of a sick dog, lack of sleep, and an extra afternoon shift at the farm. Hoping for a normal week next week.

Movies

We still didn’t watch a movie this week. I’m so tired by the time my wife finishes working there is no way I would stay awake if we tried to watch a movie.

TV

I watched the first two episodes of Single Drunk Female on Freeform. I liked it. It deals with the serious topic of alcoholism, but also makes you laugh.

I’m watching Righteous Gemstones and Euphoria on HBO. Two very different shows. I love them both.

I had something at 7 Wednesday night. I almost decided to not record Jeopardy because I assumed it would be another game Amy won easily. I’m glad I decided to record it so I could see how she lost. Watching last night I was reminded that no super champion can mean a lot of missed questions from the contestants.

We watched Resident Alien. It is very good, but I’m still shocked my wife likes it.

We are starting to play catch-up with New Amsterdam. I’m still wondering why shows think it is a good idea to put the main character in a location away from the rest of the show.

Books

Once again, I only managed to finish one book this week.

The Dark Hours by Michael Connelly – This is the latest in the Renee Ballard/Harry Bosch series. Ballard is working on a murder that is connected to a murder Bosch investigated before he retired. She’s also trying to catch a pair of serial rapists. She teams up with Bosch again to solve the crimes.

I usually love the Bosch books. I’ve enjoyed the addition of Ballard to the story. It took me a bit to get into this one because Connelly leaned really hard into “it’s during the pandemic so I need to mention masks constantly” It made it hard for me to read. Eventually, the story took over and he mentioned who was wearing or not wearing a mask. The mystery of the murder was decent. The rape story was not as well done. A bit of disappointment for me.

On Deck

We might actually watch Pig with Nicolas Cage tonight. The DVD is way overdue.

We will probably be completely caught up on New Amsterdam this week.

If we get the DVR to a decent level we might watch the new season of Cobra Kai on Netflix.

I am currently reading Wholehearted Faith by Rachel Held Evans.

  1. Cobra Kai is ridiculous. All these people would be in jail or expelled from school by now, but I still love it. I was glad to get one final book from Rachel Held Evans, but it made me sad that there will never be another one.

    1. Yeah. Cobra Kai is fun but you have to suspend disbelief.
      I remember when I heard Rachel Held Evans was sick and in the medically induced coma. I still thought she would pull through somehow. It’s very sad.
