  • Succession - HBO

    I know it is a stupid thing to complain about, but HBO seems dead set on not releasing the seasons (outside of the first on blu-ray). It was announced recently that the third season would be released on DVD on May 17th. They did the same thing for the second season. It is just really bizarre for one of their most praised shows to not be released on blu-ray. Why even bother with putting it out on DVD if they are so (seemingly) against sales on physical media?

    This is pretty weird, I wonder if there's a long standing deal for DVD distribution or something like that. But hey, why sell you something once for 40 bucks when you can pay them 15+ dollars a month for eternity to never own it?
    Yeah, I have no clue. But it is weird, because they went back and like re-released Chernobyl on 4K. And Westworld consistently gets 4K releases. I'm sure it has something to do with who is in charge of the physical distribution. Someone has crunched the numbers and its made sense to them. But for a guy like me who is trying to hold on to physical medium by his fingernails, it is irritating. Champagne problems to have.

  • What are you eating?

    No picture to show because I’m eating whatever equals 900 cal a day.
    I think just reading this thread means you have gone over that limit.

    A.Ron just hit "Long Term Parking"! I.e. the episode that made me practically fist pump when a certain scene goes down in "The Blue Comet".
    Probably my favorite episode of the series. Or most impactful at least. It hit me like a ton of bricks. Despite knowing what to expect from the show, it still suckered me in.

    Really hope we get to hear him to talk about it (and "The Test Dream") on a podcast!
    I am curious of his thoughts on Test Dream. I love that one too, but it is so divisive. Just the entire atmosphere of that episode--even at the beginning--is dream-like. 

    But one thing is for sure, Jim won't remember any of it.

    Wife and I also watched and enjoyed Sweet Tooth, but I thought it was a one-off mini-series and it definitely isn't. The season ends with essentially a cliffhanger. 
    Now that is just tempting fate when it is a Netflix show.
