Media Diary (June 2019)

Some things I’ve experienced lately, in no particular order, and not necessarily only recent stuff (also not including Poldark, which I dabbled in while my wife TORE IT UP):

When They See Us (TV): Infuriating

Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese (Movie): I knew it had fictional elements woven in, but my mind was blown after doing some research

Man in The Window (Podcast): A super chilling look at the Golden State Killer

Swamp Thing (TV): As a big fan of the comics, I was pleasantly surprised by this show (then infuriated when it was of course immediately canceled)

Mad Max (Movie): Despite both being fans of Fury Road, neither of us had ever seen the original trilogy (in other words, we’d wasted our lives)

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (Movie): Glorious

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (Movie): As expected, Tina elevates

The Chernobyl Podcast (Uh, Podcast): Seriously, it might be as good as the show

Axios (TV): Enjoyed it last year, enjoying it this year

Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes (Movie): Ugh

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman (TV): Was excited to see more new episodes

Confronting: O.J. Simpson (Podcast): I’ll never stop being obsessed with the O.J. trial, and this show from Ron Goldman’s sister provides a really interesting perspective

Good Omens (TV): So far, so good

Dark Phoenix (Movie): I guess it was fine?

The Weekly (TV): You’ll love it if you love The Daily

1865 (Podcast): Expected a documentary series instead of a radio play, but I’m fully along for the ride

The Handmaid’s Tale (TV): Still great, still a little too close for comfort

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (Movie): Was decent, but the documentary is a better bet

Baskets (TV): Against all odds, the pride of Bakersfield endures
