What are you watching?

Baseball news has been abysmally slow lately — only 23 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training — and the endless debate over our prospective website name is waning (pretty much everyone has voted by now)… so… let’s take the discussion off-topic from baseball and find out the answer to the pressing question of the day:

What are you binge-watching on Netflix (or your preferred streaming service)?

My wife and 17-year-old son don’t do Netflix very often… he prefers video gaming on Steam and watches YouTube mainly, and she PVRs from satellite TV, but my 14-year-old daughter and I have been watching a lot of Netflix lately.  What are we watching?

Mainly older stuff, really, of the sci-fi variety… she currently has me interested in her favourite series — Dr. Who — starting at Season 1 with Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor.  She is somewhere in Season 4 herself, but has started over so that I can “catch up”.

Tardis

In return, I have turned her into a Next Generation Trekkie, watching Star Trek:The Next Generation… also starting with Season 1.

NCC-1701D

She is truly a child of the CGI generation, though, as she constantly points to the “terrible special effects” from both series, but mainly Star Trek… then I explain that the show is pushing 30 years old, and that was cutting edge special effects technology back in the day.

So…what are all y’all watching?

  1. With all my free time I’m watching: Justified (again), West Wing (again), and eventually I’ll start watching The Wire and possibly The Shield (loved Walton Goggins in Justified).

      • If you like politics and are interested on the absurd difficulties of the president’s staff, it’s a phenomenal series. Some caveats, almost universally any republican is going to be the “bad guy” in the show (save Vinick/Alan Alda’s character). But if you like quick/sharp humor, and possibly the greatest character introduction in TV history (first time you met the President/Martin Sheen).

      • West Wing is one of the greatest shows ever written. That is until Sorkin left the show. You can pretty much pinpoint his final episode. Sports Night, also by Sorkin was actually better and is a great example of the horridness that is a laugh track. He fought hard to not have one, but lost in the beginning and you can see how bad it is. Then they slowly faded it away until at around Season 2, it’s completely gone and the show was MUCH improved.

      • It holds up pretty well actually. Very sad it didn’t get a few more seasons. Funny to watch it after I’ve watched Sorkin’s other shows (I’m a huge Sorkin fan). He certainly likes to repeat several themes and jokes in each show.

        West Wing I found to be very inspiring. As long as you don’t get too worked up over politics, then it’s a lot of fun to watch. I don’t lean one way or another and I’m not very political. I draw a very clear line on each independent issue, but I tend to agree and disagree with all major parties, and eventually just get to the point where I don’t care enough to get worked up over it all.

      • Yeah Sorkin also wrote in issues Democrats have “difficulties” with at the time, like making POTUS weak on military issues and putting his religion at the forefront of his character.

  2. Aside from my voyage through baseball movies…I had a mini-Rickman movie binge recently, watching Dogma, Galaxy Quest, and Robin Hood.

    TV-wise, not much right now, but that will change soon. Agent Carter just started, Better Call Saul and Archer will be back before too much longer. I need to catch up with Children’s Hospital, as I noticed a new season of that is starting up and I’m way back in the 4th season. Also, I’d like to find time to get that first season of Ash Vs.

        • Bartolo Colon: 18 seasons – career BA of .043, career OPS+ of -44, career oWAR with the bat of -1.1. Only spent 3 years in the NL, where his numbers are no improvement over his AL stats. His value at the plate is as a spectacle, nothing more.

          Madbum: 7 seasons – career BA of .183, career OPS+ of 46, career oWAR of 3.1… but he’s only been even an average hitter for two seasons, so SSS alert. The only guy on your list who’s never been in the AL. Gets props for his hitting because he has a couple of grand slams.

          Greinke: 12 seasons – career BA of .220, career OPS+ of 65, career oWAR of 3.2. Again, SSS alert as 2.7 of his WAR has come in his 3 years in LA, and that was inflated due to the anomaly of him hitting .328 in 2013. Probably the best hitting pitcher currently, although “least horrible” is the better term.

          That these 3 guys are considered “damn good hitters” by the anti-DH crowd is one of the strongest arguments FOR the DH. It is a very telling stat that the absolute best hitting pitcher is a worse hitter than Juan Pierre, who amassed 18.4 WAR in 14 seasons. Most are worse than Juan Castro, who, in 17 years managed to compile -6.0 oWAR.

          I’d have to do some research, but it seems the average NL pitcher is worse on offense (compared to the rest of the league) than the average AL DH is on defense.

      • Ah, yes. Revisionism a whole 1 year later. Miller was pretty much horrible for over a year, and was not progressing. When traded, he was 24 and had a whole 3 months of being a good starter to his name and he still had no average or better secondary pitch (he still doesn’t). Then he has some babip luck for 3 months and luck not giving up HRs and gets to face the Mets (pre-trade deadline), Atlanta, and Miami in over 1/2 his games to look better than he is…all while actually pitching a little better than before after admitting that he was less stubborn about being willing to change his approach after being traded…and then Atlanta makes one of the dumbest trades ever for him.

        Also, I’d rather have the draft pick than Lackey for the next 2 years. Not a lot of 37 and 38 yr olds being better than average starters. He could be the exception. But I’ll take the pick.

        I would love for the Cardinals to sign more big name FAs because, man, that is fun during the off season….but take a look at the history of being the highest bidder of FAs (especially older ones) and usually teams are glad they lost out on the bidding (Heyward being an exception because he’s still only 26).

        • True dat. And, his 2015, as I’ve said before, was just 2013 redux with 20 more innings. Atlanta probably struck a bit of lightning, and the Snakes may regret the move.

          That said, let’s also not forget Miller’s non-appearance in the 2013 postseason. If he was being held back as trade bait, wouldn’t you pitch him more in the postseason to showcase him?

          Instead, I think there were some weird dynamics in the background already then. Whether it was more Mo having issues with Miller, or Matheny, I’m not sure. But, IMO, at least one of them, back in 2013, had issues with him.

          On Lackey, still not sure on the pick, That said, if you are going to let him go, AND not resign Heyward, please, a bigger pitcher than Leake. And, on a top-notch one, given them the opt-out AND front-load the contract, to nudge them toward the opt-out.

          Speaking of, I’m sure Mo never included the opt-out in the Heyward offer, and, not only that, I’m wondering if that was deliberate …

Bull Durham for the millionth time. I really only watch 2 scripted tv shows with any regularity: Game of Thrones and Orange is the New Black.

      • As you can see by my avatar, I like Inside Out just a little bit. I have a degree in psychology, and it has the best graphical explanation of a child’s subconscious and impending puberty that I have ever seen. Its explanation for an ohrwurm is hilarious. The area for dream sequences is another highlight. And the imaginary friend, well, I don’t want to spoil it. The people who created this movie really understood children, the human mind, and family dynamics. Ultimately, where it spoke to me the most calling for the end of the tyranny of the “happiness” crowd. While joy is a very important emotion, the movie seems to be saying that we are not complete beings without feeling the full range of all of our complex emotions.

        lol. That’s a lot for a little Pixar movie, isn’t it? I love Pixar movies. Except for a few rare misses, Pixar consistently has created movies that have great mass appeal yet speak to us on a much deeper level.

      • I’m kinda late to the game with Pixar movies. I pretty much wrote them off as “kids” movies for a long time, until I hanging out at my sister’s last year and she asked me to keep an eye on her kids while she made a quick run to the store for some missing dinner ingredients. She put in The Incredibles to make the job easier for me and by the time she got back about 30 minutes later, I made the suggestion that she wait a little while to finish dinner “so the kids could finish the movie”. I’m 100% certain she saw right through me, but she didn’t mind.

        Since then, I’ve watched the Incredibles a few more times. Inside Out is definitely outstanding. The Toy Story movies are good, but not quite as good as those two. I haven’t seen any of the others yet…

They have clear messages that work for all age groups. There’s no shame in an adult watching these films without the presence of a child. I’ll give you a quick checklist since you’re new to them.

        Toy Story 1-3
        Monsters Inc 1-2
        Finding Nemo
        The Incredibles
        Cars
        Wall-E

          I also hate Finding Nemo. I hate everything about it. I actually got up and left the room because I disliked it so much.

          But the Toy Story trilogy is golden, The Incredibles is awesome, and I’m a sucker for Tangled – I love the message of that movie, that true beauty is found inside one’s heart and that selfless love can work miracles. I also like Cars a lot – I know it’s probably the weakest of all Pixar features, but I like it. It’s cute. Anyone who grew up around auto racing like I did would probably like it a lot.

        I owned almost all the Pixar movies before kids were even an idea. Pixar didn’t fool me. These were children’s movies only at a superficial level.

        WALL-E is my favorite. It starts a bit slow–there are no words spoken in the first 25 minutes or so–but your patience is rewarded. Its basically a love ode to this little blue orb we call home. WALL-E is a cross between Charlie Chaplin, E.T., and Johnny 5 garbage compressor robot who falls in love with a slick beautiful work obsessed Extra-terrestrial Vegetation Evaluator, or EVE, who looks like something Jobs would have designed. Smooth, round, and white with no buttons. (This is why we shouldn’t give our robots AI. They start falling in love, and getting all distracted. We need them working.)

        • Ha, too funny. I didn’t cry at Inside Out, but it did give me the feels. Perhaps a parent feels it more deeply, having transitioned out of childhood (hopefully, sort of) into the role of helping to develop a child. I thought the coming of age movie was bittersweet and lovely, and the level of complexity and sophistication– the abstract thought section, the train of thought, the long term memory, the memory dumps, the orbs, the islands–was great. The writers did their research. I did not feel as if I was pandered to, and that is rare.

          SPOILER ALERT

          Bing Bong was one big trigger for tears–I heard sniffles in the theater–but his tragic scene was necessary for her development. The child would have otherwise been left in a stunted state of development. It was a sweet but ultimately needed sacrifice. I didn’t see it as sad. If he lived, her personhood dies.

  9. We are living in a golden age of television even as the networks have never been more useless. There simply isn’t enough time to watch all the quality shows out there now.

    If anyone is on the fence about watching The Wire, I would urge you to give it a shot. I’ve watched the entire episode run 1-60 and I’ll watch it again pretty soon. I’ve deliberately avoided it for the last few years to try and forget as much as possible.

    Stand alone episodes of the show will not excite you. Most seasons take 2-3 episodes to lay the groundwork for the best storytelling I’ve ever seen in the medium. David Simon and his deep roster of writers constructed a world that was astonishingly real. Where the bad guys sometimes got away and the real money people are completely untouchable. They managed to breathe new life into a tired old trope like the cynical self-destructive detective. The show was mainly about the failure of the institutions that people depend upon and the inability to reform systems that won’t bear reform. Season four, with an overarching plot that tracked the lives of four junior high school kids remains the most powerful television I’ve ever seen.

      If you like The Wire and haven’t seen The Corner (also co-written by and adapted from a book written by Simon), you should check it out. Just as good as The Wire, but only 6 episodes. It was really like the Pilot for The Wire.

  10. Currently I’m into Justified on Amazon. They also have Transparent, which is great, and Bosch, an excellent rendition of the character. You can skip the Philip K. Dick adaptation, The Man In the High Castle – very
    s-l-o-w.

    Next up after Justified is either Orange Is The New Black starring Kathryn Janeway, or Orphan Black. Mr. Robot looks interesting, liked that guy in “The Pacific.”

    About ten years after the end of “Enterprise” I resolved to see all Star Trek again. Could only handle a few eps of TOS. Somewhere along the way they added some modern glamour shots of the Enterprise in orbit which only served to point out how poor the original effects were, but what stopped me was the hundreds of hours I spent watching repeats as a kid – by the second episode I was delivering lines with the actors as if I was at a midnight Rocky Horror Show (another youthful indiscretion).

    I moved on to TNG and enjoyed it but couldn’t last to the end. I ended up skipping eps and going for the ones I liked best.

    Next up was DS9 and the difficulty was I liked the “mythology” episodes of the continuing story but too many stand alone eps got in the way, and I bailed before the third season. Sorry, Capt. Sisko! You were the only future baseball fan in the Star Trek universe!

    Now, Voyager, which had the most stunning title sequence of any ST series. I had watched the original, but dropped out for at least a year and was an intermittent viewer at best so I went through the whole thing start to finish. Right from the start Kate Mugrew was the strongest command personality since Kirk – and had some great lines! (“It’s not crunch time yet, Mr. Kim”) Everyone was new and it was doubtful they would try to stunt cast with a TOS or TNG player, but when Q showed up, his interplay with Janeway took on a decidedly sexual tone. Had a great time, took like six months or so, and finished it (cried at the end). By that time, I was not ready to continue.

    After a year off, I watched Enterprise, and my memory of Jonathan Archer stumbling around the galaxy turned out to be a little off. Yes mistakes were made, but I enjoyed a lot of early eps and found the Xindi season much better than I remembered. I actually came to like Commander Trip Tucker, whom I had not cared for much before.

    But all that kind of cured me of the immersion form of television. I’ve got a lot of Justified to do because I can’t do a first view on fast forward. I need a couple days off between episodes so I can absorb it. Go too quickly and it’s a mish-mash. I can handle multiple episodes in a single sitting only if I’m familiar with the overall story.

    Perhaps in a couple years it will be time to burn through “Lost”. A little over 100 episodes, I can do that standing on my head.

    • Yeah, that series was a slog until the episode where they have that dinner at the obergrubenfurher’s(sp?) house. Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, the best parts of the entire series happened during meals at his house. That bizzarro Ozzie & Harriet breakfast scene towards the beginning of the series was a good one.

      Beyond that though…so much potential, so little payoff.

  14. Rectify is almost unbelievably slow paced, which pairs nicely with the laconic and inscrutable performance of the lead actor, Aden Young. He portrays a man named Daniel Holden who was released from solitary confinement after serving 20 years for the rape and murder of a young woman. DNA evidence frees him, which parallels the storyline of the recent Making a Murderer miniseries to a degree. Somehow, the low key approach works for this show.
