    An End to Streaming?

    “Why Don’t You Have Netflix Yet?” or “Ever Since I Started Streaming, I’ve Saved So Much Money on DVDs!” These were the comments when Netflix first emerged, and they didn’t particularly excite me.

    D&D: Honor Among Thieves, unconventional heroes

    Dungeons & Dragons is quite the rage these days when it comes to gaming. You step into the shoes of a character, part of a team, with a game master who throws your group into all sorts of thrilling challenges. It seems like such a simple task to use these building blocks to create an…

    This week, not many new series. On Sunday, we’re finally diving into the third season of an old TV series on disc. And Saturday remains Star Trek night. Our new series on Sunday turns out to be a hit, and I’ve managed to squeeze in a spot in our TV schedule for… a very old…

    We’ve added some new series to our schedule again. It’s still challenging to stick to the schedule when you have so many exciting series to watch. So, the schedule remains much the same, but occasionally something sneaks in! On Mondays and Sundays, we now have two new series. Read on!

    Proper Medical Drama: House MD

    We watched the first five seasons years ago and then decided to stop.
