Hello all. I hope this winter day finds you all well. There was a lot of shoveling by me and some cursing. Just wanted to say thanks to the snow plow that was kind enough to fill my spot back up as I was at my girlfriend’s shoveling her car out because really, what doesn’t make sense about taking away spots when people need them the most.
I finished up Third World America by Arianna Huffington. It had quite a bit of information in it. However, a lot of it was things I knew already. Though some of the statistics were new to me. This is a good book for people who want to know what is going on with the US economy and are not quite sure who to blame. I do feel that it glosses over a few key facts and tries to show both sides when there is really only one side. That being said, a pretty decent read. C+.
Also checked out a new comic series called Robyn Hood. It is the Grimm Fairy Tales take on the classic. Shand, Watts, Filardi, and Metcalfe put it together. Decent little read so far. A bit expensive but the art was well done. There is a bit of gore but less than what I have seen previously. Still, important to note for those with children. It does pander a bit to a sense of justice reader. Everything is a bit obvious with outcome and villains are very obvious and bland. I’ll give it a C, though that might be a bit generous.
Onto Chuck. My girlfriend has not seen the full season so I won’t say too much. The story grows into a more adult tone overall but the comedy still stays. This season actually has two of my favorite moments within the entire show. The acting is superb, the camera work and visuals are amazing, and you’ll really begin to wonder where the heck they got the budget for it all. I could spew for hours about how fantastic and amazing everything is because it is nearly impossible to find flaws. I know quite a few Chuck fans hated this season, however I do not understand why. A lot of the season is a nod to the first, the one which everyone fell in love with. It makes some of the fans come off almost bitter. Enough of that though. I cannot give the fourth season any less than an A. I hope everyone owns it. If you do not go out and buy the entire series now!
That is all for this week. Just wanted to give a few quick thoughts. I hope you are all safe and warm inside your homes. Do not go out if you can avoid it. Remember leave a comment, follow, or like if you enjoy my posts.
