[11/21] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened

Recently Read

The Sentinel: A Jack Reacher Novel, By Lee Child and Andrew Child - I started reading this around 9 pm on Thursday night and ended up finishing the book (reading all the way through). It was a good overall story; well-paced which made it really easy for me to just keep reading. There really wasn't a "stopping point".

Southland, by Nina Revoyr - I'm about 80% through this but I'm counting it towards this week. The story jumps through different eras of the 20th century, across different parts of Los Angeles and makes me miss being around LA. The main plot, and characters, is intriguing. I love it so far.

Recently Watched

Fargo - currently at s4, e8. *taps fingers waiting for this story to end*

Star Trek: Discovery - currently at s3 e5. The season is slowly getting better. Michael Burnham and Philippa Georgiou make a great pairing when they're off on their own adventure.

The Mandalorian - currently at s2 e4. I enjoyed another Paul Sun-Hyung Lee appearance. I can't decide if I want more stand-alone plots or if I want more overarching plots (in tv series) but this series does a good job doing both.

The Queen’s Gambit - completed season 1. Ok, so we were hooked and watched all the way through. It was overall a good season. There's a... lot to unpack around the orphanage and adoption story arc but, that will be for another time. Thomas Brodie-Sangster will always look like a little kid (circa his "Love Actually" role) to me.

Ted Lasso - completed season 1. I liked it! Just a fun and light-hearted series that had some really good emotional moments in it.

Recently Listened

This week’s rotation included Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Crimson Apple, Flor De Toloache, Peggy Gou, Blackpink, and Megadeth.

[Single] "Discopop!" by Hong Kong Wigs - A pretty good, upbeat track. My first listen I skipped it after the first 10 seconds but came back to it and it has grown on me since.

[Podcast] Death, Sex & Money: I Killed Someone. Now I Study Police Violence - I cannot imagine being in his position.
