  • Thanks heaps guys, I will check these out. The little one is 2 and a half, and won't sit for five minutes on the couch before repeatedly rolling or trying to bounce all over it, and so won't take in a story, even a short one. With books it's fine though. It would be nice to watch a show together as we are more on our feet, doing art activities, pulling apart toys, drawing all over the furniture :S lol, and it would just be nice to unwind sometimes and watch something which has a good story to it, for example.

    You may thank me by naming your newborn after me. Details over private msg. ktnxbb
    I will keep this in mind, hahaha, thanks Shiftycent! I recall reading somewhere, Stranger Things is not unlike the Goonies, I don't know how true that is?

    Baby Einstein

    I admit, when our kids were about a year old we would sit them in front of the Tv with the Baby Einstein DVDs playing.

    It was just high definition colours, shapes, and activity to hypnotise the kid.

    It wasn’t meant to make them smart.

    The name was a total lie and excuse/rationalisation for parents to dump kids in front of a TV at too early an age to get sh!t done for 30 minutes around the house.
    I believe it's good to have some quiet chill time sometimes too, though. Society has been on and on about the TV being an idiot box for ever and a day. I recall the adults when I was little saying turn that idiot box off and go outside and play, then see them sit down and put their favorite show on

    And, now days there has been everyone from Bill Gates, to Steven Jobs, quoted as saying they don't over media saturate their kids before a certain age, or something like that. Get them outside and playing and not sitting in front of a TV, etc and fair enough, I do agree with this for the most part, but that is inclusive now of the internet, and so TV time is just being looped up in all it, it seems, I guess. But with little ones who aren't using computers or Internet, it is still applicable to have some TV time. We had a good balance of outside play time and inside TV time.

    But, in doing so, everyone seems to be forgetting it's OK not to go so much over to one side you forget to enjoy a bit of the TV, too. I think TV and movies still offer a good storytelling vehicle for kids, with visual and audio, all in one.

    If there is a good balance of physicality in a child's play and quiet relaxed time, then watching a show on a rainy day or after a busy week of outings etc, then watching TV and getting a story together can still be a nice thing. Balance, or counterbalance, sometimes, hey.

    If the little one is having a good balance of activity, it is also important to have quiet time too, book reading indeed, but sometimes a nice story presented with TV visuals and audio etc is great, too. I still remember the magic of getting our blankets as kids, and curling up in front of the TV to watch some Christmas Special, they were good times, it was a treat and absolutely enchanting. Actually, we pretty much still grab a blanket and curl up infront of the TV as adults and watch whatever, it's just called Netflix or something like it.

    It’s a claymation cartoon about a baby penguin who gets in the sh!t all the time, which my kids found incredibly amusing and have mimicked in real life pretty much every day since.
    Awesome, this sounds good. Thanks Flagg, will give it a try.

          • Finished "Fauda" on Netflix. Pretty decent. Mossad? against Hamas and someone trying to bring ISIS into Palestine. I flew through it.

            Also been watching 13 Reasons Why. But there's not much reason for anyone here to watch that. Plenty of criticism for it, but with my generation, I understand its attraction.

            But guys...watch Bosch. For real. Just binged the first season of that, too.. Really good.

                  Word Aero. Bosch is great. Watched all of them. I dig it because they act like real people. His Lt. actually likes him and doesn't stereotypically scream constantly, his teenaged daughter doesn't act like a psycho bitch for no reason, the detectives get along, office politics is an issue...like real life. Sure he has an impossibly awesome house in the hills but that's explained by movie consulting money. His ex wife is a former FBI profiler that is now a professional poker player. It fits though.

                  Just watched the first season of Goliath. Billy Bob Thornton as a down and out former super lawyer is very well done. Poor '66 Mustang rag top he drives though.

                  • I almost have done with Narcos, Great series I have one problem tho, if they spend so much amount of money on production values, I don't like the anachronism of the firearm like Galil Ace, I don't it wasn't even there in the early 90s

                    • I'm currently watching Archer season 9 (Danger Island, I think?) and it's fucking terrible. I've cut the later seasons a lot of slack, but this one is just bad. They constantly reuse the same "jokes", sometimes multiple times an episode, and the writers seem to think that a character yelling a monologue is the same as a character being funny. So I'm rewatching Rick and Morty, which is the opposite of terrible. It's also been renewed for 70 episodes apparently, so more seasons are definitely coming.

                      • Yup, season 9 of Archer is disappointing.

                        It felt rushed and uninspired. The next one will take place in space apparently.


                        As for R&M... the first two seasons were nice but only a very few episodes from the third were good (especially the one with all the different Ricks and Mortys). Apart from that, I didn't really enjoyed that season. Probably because everybody was going full "wubaluba dub dub" and "I'm pickle Rick!"...

                        • I didn't like Pickle Rick either, but I did like the open question at the end of the season about whether or not Beth is a clone. And Rick just can't get rid of Jerry, no matter how hard he tries.

                          • Just finished off the next lot of The Ranch, they wrote Danny Masterson out, for something that was investigated 15 years ago and the accusations proven to be without merit...

                              • Altered carbon.

                                pretty good actually. Kind of spiritual and sci-fi with the "stack" and "sleeve" thing but not drowned through tech and whizz gadgets making the characters and the story identifiable with some police flick that would take place like 20 years from now. The police chief still wears a suit and a tie 300/400 years from now (although the date of the events seems real unclear) so I guess some things never go out of fashion.

                                Pretty much hooked.
