In preparation for hooking up a Roku for someone, I was checking out some of the free channels that I have but never bother to look at, and what did I find streaming on CW Seed* ... both seasons of the 1987 ABC series Max Headroom.
Thanks for the info Pie!
Blipverts is where it’s at. I’m sure for the right price congress will pass and el trumpo will sign a bill protecting the networks from any damages resulting from this new technology. Nobody* cares about the old, sick or unemployed. Except when they vote. And the dead can’t vote.**
Only two more weeks until the premier of American Gods. I am ridiculously excited.
I was poking about for something to watch and found AbFab is a new release on Netflix.

I’m going to take you back to a simpler time. A time when I was new to twitter*. When the Republican candidate for president’s misogyny was the softer, paternalistic kind of simply trying to protect women from their own choices rather than the aggressive, hostile, violent misogyny (along with racism and xenophobia) of…
The trailer for this 2004 French action film pretty much says it all.
