I've been listening to a lot of the "Netflix is a Joke" radio channel on Sirius XM. They play 2-3 minute clips of various Netflix standup specials. I often find myself cracking up in the car during my commute (other drivers probably wonder why I'm laughing so hard sometimes). There have been a couple of clips that made me laugh so hard, I then went and watched the person's special on Netflix.

I'm on E2. It's not terrible. I tried watching Stargate Origins: Catherine (2018) movie. It was unwatchable.

Another Life is actually pretty good. The AI dude "William" with his accent is just worth watching every episode!

The Rocko’s Modern Life Netflix special was very good.

When I saw the trailer for it, I was worried because it was all tired gags about Rocko and friends experiencing iPhones and food trucks. But the whole thing is a really neat commentary on nostalgia and fear of change.

Now, when lazy and disingenuous people try to claim ignorance, I'm 100% entitled to dismissing them as lazy or disingenuous. Hope it helps!

The short list

Not sure why certain things show up on my Netflix home screen, but I got pulled into this docu that was supposed to be about the baseball card boom, scandals, etc. I was a sucker during that boom, so was curious. It's a hard skip. They barely talk about baseball cards. It's mostly about the family drama surrounding a guy who made a living dealing baseball cards (narrated/hosted by the guy's now adult son).

UGHGHG!! That's the worst. When a doc proclaims to be about a subject but it's really a personal story.

Can't help pointing out the irony that you got suckered by the baseball card boom, and now you got suckered by the doc.
