The Last Kingdom Book

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on January 31, 2018 by getbent57

The_Last_Kingdom_BookHave started to read the book The Last Kingdom.  This is the first book in a series.  Which I just found out has ten books so far.  Got this one and the second book, The Pale Horseman, in a box set.  Knew nothing about these books.  According to Wikipedia this series is all so known as The Saxon Stories.  These are written by Bernard Cornwell.  All so found out the first four were turned into a TV show.   Which is now on Netflix called The Last Kingdom.

So far an really enjoying this book.  From what I read so far.  It tells the story of a young boy who heads into battle with his father a lord of castle.  His father is killed and he is kidnapped by the raiders, Danes.  They are something like Vikings.  At first I wasn’t to sure if I would like this book because some of the names I have know idea how to say them. Making it hard to follow.  Turns out it is easy to read and really interesting.  When I get though these two books will have to seek out the others.

I know.  I am very late to the party.   Have watched the first three episodes of Netflix Marvel’s show Jessica Jones.  Had some time off.  So made some time to watch more of Netflix.  Really enjoyed the Daredevil show.  So I know I would be interested in this one.  Well, was hooked right away. Can’t wait to see the rest of them.  This is an amazing show.  I can tell just after the first episode.  Have read the the second season will be out some time in March 2018.  Will be adding that to my list as well.

The_Toys_That_Made_UsHad some time off.  So decided to see what was new on Netflix.  One show caught my eye, The Toys That Made Us.  This is a eight part documentary series about very famous toys.  So far the first four episodes out.  Not sure then the next four will be out.  But guessing pretty soon.  Have watched the four episodes.  Enjoyed each one.  They interview most of the people how created the toys as well a how it all came to be. While working in some comedy as well.  It works really well.  It keep me invested.  The episodes talked about, Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man and G.I. Joe.  They are all really fun an interesting to watch.  Looking forward to see what the next ones will be.

For the longest time the only way to steam episodes Bob’s Burgers was on Hulu.  Which is not available here in Canada.  So if you missed out on an episode you were out of luck.  Unless you know how to “acquire” it some how.  Have some good news.  While watching the Netflix video, New to Netflix Canada – December, which you can see > here or below.  It shows that the first seven season of Bob’s Burgers will be on there December 31, 2017.  Sure we have to wait until the end of the month.  It’s not a bad way to spend the new years binging this awesome show.

Doctor Strange Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on June 16, 2017 by getbent57

Doctor_StrangeHave been wanting to watch Doctor Strange for awhile now.  It is now on Netflix. So gave it a watch.  Find it pretty amazing that this is the fourteenth movie in this Marvel world.  What makes this one standout it brings in the this world, magic.  Really like how they explained and showed how that works.  It all makes sense. When I first seen the trailers for this movie thought it was going to be more serious than the other movies.  Well I was wrong.  There was a lot of comedy.  All of which (for the most part) was funny.

Didn’t know much about this Marvel character.  After watching the movie want to know more about him.  He is a pretty cool character.  Enjoyed this movie a lot.  It was something different for a superhero movie.  There might not be any surprising plot points. Nothing really new on that front.  However it was very fun watch.
