The lilies in our yard have finally started blooming. We have a bunch of them in the yard. There is a large concentration of them in a spot where we buried the cats. Eva and Andrew want me to dig them (the lilies) up when if and when we move. Probably because we have told the kids that the cats are now part of the lilies and so we take the lilies, we take the cats.
On the Legend of Zelda front I am .09% away from being 100% complete. The thing is, I have no idea exactly where I have to go to find the last location. I have gone through the interactive map and still can’t find the missing location. So now I’ve printed out all of the locations and will have to do a checklist to find what I am missing. I’m trying to get this all done before next Friday when the DLC pack comes out with even more things to do in Hyrule.
I just finished watching a new Netflix series called GLOW. It is a half hour comedy about the creation of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling or GLOW. The show is so full of 80’s Easter Eggs. References to everything from leotards and leg warmers to Back to the Future. There is even a training montage complete with Stan Bush’s “Dare”. The show stars Allison Brie and Marc Maron and is very cheesy but funny at the same time. I do hope that there will be a second season because I’d like to know where things go next.
As part of the Netflix #StreamTeam I received early access to watch the first three episodes of the new Netflix Original comedy, Friends from College. I watched all three in a mini binge session. It is an entertaining show. While I cannot relate to having a tight knit group of college friends I have experienced those moments where old friends only see you for who you were in the past. I can relate to the Cobie Smulders character (Lisa) who is still called “Froshie” by the Annie Parisse character of Sam. I have those friends that when we get together the same four stories are retold for the umpteenth time.
I enjoyed the performances of the cast. I really like watching Keegan-Michael Key despite his character’s behavior and choices in the show. He is very entertaining to watch. I also enjoyed the performance by Fred Savage. It is good seeing him in a show again.
Friends From College follows a group of college friends who are reunited, living in the same city, and facing down their forties. With interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with one another, Friends from College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past. Friends From College stars Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max), and Jae Suh Park (Marianne). The series is executive produced by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors, Neighbors: Sorority Rising, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek), who also directed all eight episodes. Francesca Delbanco serves as an EP and writer.
Friends from College premieres on Netflix on July 14, 2017.
