My Week in Books, Movies, and TV 10/1/22

I might need to rethink my writing schedule or this weekly post. For two weeks now I have lacked the motivation to write it. It might be less the timing and more the feeling that no one cares.


I didn’t watch an entire movie this week. I did turn on Dirty Grandpa one afternoon because it seemed like the type of movie that I could pay little attention to and not feel like I missed much. I was right. I fell asleep in the middle of the movie and didn’t feel like I needed to see what I missed.

Zac Efron plays an uptight lawyer who is manipulated into driving his grandfather, Robert DeNiro, to Florida during spring break. DeNiro wants Efron to loosen up and see that he is living the life his father wants, not the one he wants. I like both actors. It was a decent enough raunchy comedy.


I watched the first three episodes of Reboot on Hulu. Keegan Michael Key, Johnny Knoxville, Judy Greer, and Callum Worthy play actors from an old sitcom who are back for a reboot. Rachel Bloom is the writer who pitched the show and is forced to work with Paul Reiser, the original showrunner with whom she had a connection. It’s a great cast that does a lot to make up for a weak premise.

Ghosts is back and just as good as last season.

We watched the premiere of So Help Me Todd. I will have a review up tomorrow or Monday.


I finished one book this week.

The Bullet that Missed by Richard Osman – The Thursday Murder Club is back in action. This time they are investigating the murder of a news anchor from 10 years ago. All of the regulars are back and a few new faces are added.

I was skeptical when someone recommended this series and now it is one of my favorites. I love the characters, the mysteries are good, it is well written and funny. I hope they keep some of the new characters around. I think they are good additions.

On Deck

I will have six days home alone again starting Wednesday so there will be a lot more random TV and movies to fill the time. The movies will be whatever I find streaming or on the movie channels.

Station 19 and Greys return this week.

SNL is back tonight.

The end of the Walking Dead begins tomorrow night.

I will watch the first episodes of the new shows East New York and Fire Country and review them.

Chucky is back.

Interview with the Vampire premieres tomorrow night. I loved the books and am looking forward to the show.

Kung Fu and Walker are back on the CW.

SWAT and Blue Bloods return to CBS.

It is a busy TV week.

I have not yet decided what I will read next.
