🫑 MOR TV Shows

Posted September 1, 2023

Just finished season 5 of What We Do in the Shadows (so fun!) and watched the first episode of Disenchantment S5 (out today – love that Matt Berry voices the pig). Also watching Futurama S11, Only Murders in the Building S3, Reservation Dogs S3 and Justified: City Primeval. Looking forward to The Morning Show S3 (Sept 13), Survivor S45 (Sept 27) and Fargo S5 (Nov 21).

Kid one wanted me to binge this one and now I’m caught up. Matt Berry is my favorite part of this show, but really the entire cast is fun to watch…

The last episode was not my favorite, but the rest of the season had great writing and I’m happy to see it was renewed for another season (pending resolution of the strike, I presume)

Minnesota Historia βœ…

Posted June 6, 2023

The Star Tribune had a story today about this YouTube series by PBS North (the former WDSE-WRPT) hosted by UMD alumni Hailey Eidenschink (who gives me strong Megan Steil vibes). Season one has six short episodes (under ten minutes each), while the new season will have eight (five are online now).

With a heavy focus on the Northland, but I found all of them to be super fun to watch. From agates to shipwrecks, there are lots of great topics covered. I found it difficult to track them on YouTube, so here are direct links to all of the current episodes:

I will update this post as the others are released…

Nicely done, History Nerd!

Look at me. I am old, but I’m happy. I was once like you are now and I know that it’s not easy to be calm. When you’ve found something going on, but take your time, think a lot. Why, think of everything you’ve got. For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not…
