Wise Guise Warriors… I’m back! A lot has been happening in the world since I last posted. I got lots of questions about all sorts of topics in addition to many things I’ve wanted to blog about but haven’t had time. So, without further ado, here’s a Monday Morning Mailbag to cover most of the topics you wanted to hear about, most of the topics I wanted to write about, and some.
Jeff from Jefferson City, MO: Have you seen Jurassic World yet? How do you rank it compared to other modern-day summer blockbusters in addition to the original three Jurassic Park films?
Disclaimer: I watched the show immediately after my favorite hockey team suffered a brutal loss. All comments and analogies will most likely reflect how upset I was at the time. I’m still upset, for what it’s worth. But hey, you know the old saying – it’s better to let a sporting event ruin your day/week/month than to put it in perspective with the grand scheme of life! On top of that, halfway through writing this recap I knocked over a 24oz tumbler of coffee off of my desk and directly into my workbag. So just keep that in mind when you feel like I may have crossed the line.
(Am I the only person in America who TiVo’d the Bachelorette to watch after the Stanley Cup Final?)
(Am I the only person on earth still saying TiVo when referring to any television recording? I don’t know why I do that – I never even owned an actual TiVo.)
Let’s get to it…
This past Monday I felt an emptiness in my life. I knew it had nothing to do with my work or my personal life or not pursuing my dreams or anything like that, so I googled “the bachelorette 2015 start date,” and to my delight I found that it starts this coming Monday, May 18th!
The natural next step was to look for the bios. I had a cold sweat when I thought that I missed the bio release, but then when looking on ABC’s page I couldn’t find any bios except for Britt, Kaitlyn, and author of The Perfect Letter, Chris Harrison.
Better Call Saul has premiered its first three episodes. As AMC’s latest groundbreaking original series spinning off from Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul has had great reviews and ratings. Joseph is a huge fan of Breaking Bad and Palmer never quite got into it. In the latest He Said, She Said, what do they both think of the first three episodes?
As long as I can remember, I’ve loved hour-long TV dramas about lawyers. My dad always loved Perry Mason, so I grew up with the most basic and original Godfather of TV legal procedurals. Then, during summers in elementary school, I’d wake up, play outside, then take a mid-morning break to watch Matlock reruns on TBS. So there’s something familiar and comfortable about Better Call Saul, AMC’s latest top-tier original drama series that is both prequel and sequel spin-off to one of the greatest TV dramas of all-time, Breaking Bad.
Ain’t no party like a Bachelor party, cuz a Bachelor party is FIVE HOURS THIS WEEK.
Guys (girls), I can’t believe Farmer Chris and Jade sat there and watched her strip… I mean, how did it come to that? Ugh, but we’ll get to that later, anyway…
Ladies, and Gentlemen who “only watch it because their girlfriend/wife does,”
Much like the desperate, last-resort-before-I-quit-men-altogether contestant would say… I’m excited to spend more time with each and every one of you here on the blog. I’m excited to see where this goes.
