Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2021 by getbent57

As I am typing this (October 15, 2021) watched two episodes of season thee for The Movies That Made Us.  Those were Coming to America and Aliens.  They did really good job on theses.  It had lots of interesting facts as well as some good humor.  So are this season is much better than season two.  That one seems to be more phoned in or rushed.  Plan to watch the rest of the episodes (one a night) for the next week.  Will be back with a review.

Have some very good news to share.  Found out the other day there are more episodes of The Movies That Made Us coming soon.  Back in July (2021) they put out season two with four episodes, Jurassic Park, Forrest Gump, Back to the Future and Pretty Woman.  While I really like this doc series.  Was kind of disappointed with season two.  It seemed like someone just read a Wikipedia page and turned it into a show.

So hoping season thee will be better.  As for the movies they are covering, there are eight in total.  However two of them were part of the The Holiday Movies That Made Us, Elf and The Nightmare Before Christmas.  The other six movies are, Aliens, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Coming to America, Friday the 13th, Halloween and Robocop.  All great movie.  Looking forward to seeing them.  The day they are on Netflix is October 12, 2021.

A_Toy_Store_Near_YouIf you are a fan of The Toys That Made Us or The Movies Made Us over on Netflix.  Have some good news.  The company, Nacelle,  have a new series out called A Toy Store Near You.  The idea behind this show is taking to independent toy stores about how the pandemic is affecting their business.  The best part is (as I am typing this August 1, 2020) there are five episodes all on YouTube.  Which you can check out > here.  They don’t have a playlist made so you need to go though their video list to seen them in order.  I did watch the first episode. It was pretty good.  Has a small bit of the charm from their past shows.

Am a big fan of the Netflix documentary series, The Toys That Made Us.  All three season (12 episodes) are awesome.  They are informative and funny at the same time.  There is no official world if there will be a fourth season.  But I really hope there is.  Will be keeping an eye out if here is anything announced.  If you have Netflix give these a watch.  All so check out The Movies Made Us, as well.  It’s the same idea but with movies.  They need to make more of these as well.

The Toys That Made Us Season Binge Watched

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2019 by getbent57

On November 15, 2019 the third season of The Toys That Made Us was out on Netflix.  That night I binged three of the four episodes.  Didn’t bother with the My Little Pony one.  At first was going to watch one a day.  Well they were just so good kept watching.  Talked about is in past posts.  The episode I was looking forward to the most was the one in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  It did not disappoint.  Think the best thing about is they interview Peter Laird.  He is the co-creator of the Turtles.  It look a long time for us to get new episodes. May be I should have took my time watching them.  Do think at some point there will be a fourth season.  Because they did change the song in the shows opening.  The first two seasons it said something like, in an eight part series.  Now says, in and ongoing series.   If you haven’t check any of these episodes out yet.  Do so, they are entertaining and interesting at the same time.
