At The Water Cooler:

  • Peter binge watched Evil Genius on Netflix
  • Brad went to the CCFF for some movies, started watching Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
  • In The Mail Bag:

  • Shaneez writes in that we should "definitely give Expanse another try. It's a great show that is seriously underrated. Because not only is it great sci-fi but the political undertones and how it relates to the American political system is great. The Martians (humans settled in Mars) represent the right of center political spectrum whereas the people of earth are what you could call the center left and the belters are the actual poor people being used by both sides for their political gain. I would go as far to say it's the Game of Thrones of space without the excessive violence and nudity and things do happen in each episode unlike Game of Thrones. The Expanse has to be enjoyed for its broader political undertones along with the Sci fi and action. I hope you and your team give it a try. And I'm bummed they cancelled it.
