Littlekenny (Season 1)

Those that follow the blog know by now I enjoy the show Letterkenny. You all also know I can’t truly explain why. The show is just funny to me but has no real plot line in the greater sense of things.

Enter Littlekenny. This animated show takes place a long time before season one of Letterkenny when they are all in school. It tells the story of how our little group became a group in the first place.

The season can be watched in less than an hour, honestly probably less than 30 minutes. Each episode is only a few minutes long and simply tells a small story. It never takes itself seriously and knows what it is and I was ok with that. I never wanted much from it other than some laughs and some quick back story which is what I got. Fans should check it out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Good Place (Season 2, Spoilers)

Season 2 of The Good Place picks up where season 1 left off. With them all-knowing what’s going on, Michael had to wipe their brains and started it all over again. Turns out this is about to happen over 800 times. None of the scenarios are entirely the same but certain aspects are the same. For example, Chidi always ends up helping Eleanor tho sometimes they are just friends and others they are a couple. The comedy and moral and ethical questions and the comedy continue.

By midway through the season, however, Michael has lost control of the neighborhood and has become working with our 4 main characters. He is even taking the same ethics classes with Michael as Eleanor in an attempt to be more human and trustworthy. They will, of course, get caught. The season is great and manages to recapture the magic of season one quite well. So check it out, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Good Place (season 1) (Spoilers inside)

The idea behind The Good Place is a simple one, yet an interesting one. What if when you die you go to heaven and it is just a neighborhood where you live with your soulmate in an area perfect for you and those around you? Now, what if 1 person legitimately did not belong there and were supposed and should have gone to The Bad Place?

Well, the answer to that question is nothing good, and Eleanor is that person, and she will do anything to change herself and deserve to be there. Enter Chidi, a philosophy professor. Chidi will do everything in his power to help her be worthy of The Good Place.

During this season there will be plenty of mishaps, and hilarity. Giant flying shrimp, dogs getting kicked into the sun. The show does bring up many moral and ethical questions, and you will even find out that other characters don’t belong there as well. Kristen Bell and Ted Danson (Michael) have amazing chemistry. The twist ending where you find out they have all been in The Bad Place the entire time and they have been surrounded by demons running an experiment to make humans torture themselves. The show is actually surprisingly amazing and I am kind of sad I waited so long to watch it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Letterkenny (Season 8)

Here we are again, Letterkenny Season 8. Seriously I can’t quit this damn show. It just does it for me and makes me laugh. From the hockey players and their chirping to Wayne, Dan, and Daryl just drinking beer talking about random stuff, like how you could possibly masturbate in them of December for each date. (Once on the first twice on the 2nd and so on) and yes that is a real example.

That I feel is what makes the show so great, it is simplistic and fun and it deals with things we all deal with while at the same time being so outrageous and out there that it is truly comedic at the same time.

The show honestly is pretty much what it has always been, and if you loved the other seasons you will love this one. So go check it out, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Witcher (Season One)

Season one of The Witcher on Netflix hit and it hit hard. People instantly fell in love with it and possibly the most catchy song in T.V. history. The first season is based on the first book and I am told by a friend that read it outside of having changed the bard’s name and some other minor details they haven’t changed much.

The monsters look pretty awesome and while I at first had many doubts about Henry Cavill to play Geralt of Rivia however he truly nails it I think. The characters will grow over the course of 8 episodes and with very good reason. You see most of the season takes place as a flashback with the exception of the Ciri. The show mainly explains how they all ended up connected by destiny in the first place. There are amazing fight scenes, great music and plenty of laughs.

I have played all The Witcher games and admittedly, I don’t like them. Sure the world and stories are great I just never got into the gameplay this, however, lets me enjoy it without that aspect. So go give it a watch, and enjoy the music below, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Disney+ Review

disney+

A few days ago the long anticipated  Disney streaming service debuted, so I got my hands on the free week trail.

First and foremost, I’m incredibly surprised at the affordable prices. It’s $6.99 a month or $69.99 for a whole year. The layout is inspired mostly by Netflix’s layout so it’s pretty simple to use. There are shortcuts to the classics, Marvel, Pixar, and National Geographic but when you go to the search engine, additional playlists pop up which is helpful.

So how is the selection of Disney+? It’s really freaking impressive. The whole MCU is on there (minus the Spider-man movies and Incredible Hulk because they were joint projects) Every episode of the Simpsons is there. Every obscure Disney channel show and original movie, Marvel cartoons I didn’t know existed, and multiple versions and straight to video sequels accompanying blu-ray grade classics of yester-year. I was in awe at the selection before but that was nothing compared to how well everything comes in. The sound and visuals are great but on certain things there is a tiny bit of lag when uploading certain things. For certain movies like The Last Jedi (second opinion) , Avengers: Infinity War, and the movies found elsewhere can’t be accessed now but they do list when they will be accessible on plus.

My complaints are surprisingly few and many I had cleared up after Day One. Day One there were seasons of shows left out, movies and shows that couldn’t be accessed and things ran a bit clunky. After Day One , a lot of those issues did clear up thankfully. There are some minor issues in regards to the responsiveness of the menu but I chalked it up to either how new the service. I have heard the Simpsons came out funky but I haven’t really got to check out those claims for myself yet.

In the end, Disney+ is a surprisingly good service I’d recommend checking out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Friends (Series)

So recently I decided to binge-watch friends, the whole series. I watched it years ago like most other people my age but I wanted to see it again with fresh eyes and I did learn a few things. For starters. Joey is truly the best guy in the show tho he really is an idiot. Chandler may be the best friend you could possibly have and Ross, well Ross should probably be punched in the face. Seriously, dude, we get it your wife turned out to be a lesbian. Sure you can be upset but like 6 years later its time to move on.

The show, however, is funnier than people give it credit for and I really don’t understand why so many people feel the need to bash it. The show had great character growth in the show and while it rarely covered serious topics when it did they did it well. Realistically the show was never meant to be that way tho, it was mostly just there for a laugh, and it ended up it needed to end. Ross and  Rachel always needed to end together, Pheobe needed to end with someone, not on the show the entire time and Monica and Chandler deserved their happily ever after.

Many people, however, will point to Joey and say how he kind of got screwed, but forget his show was planned as friends was ending. He couldn’t have a really happy or definitive ending because he was getting his own show which sadly ended rather abruptly, many of its episodes actually never even aired.

The show itself, however, was simply good for a laugh and was never meant to be overly realistic and that is why it was enjoyable. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
