So let me get this straight, Boba Fett is not a Mandalorian but Mandalorians looks like Boba Fett to viewers like me because Boba Fett likes to dress up like a Mandalorian and when they made the Madalorian TV show I’m not supposed to think it’s Boba Fett. 👍🏽 Makes sense to me! https://t.co/8svYyqV0Ba

For @Medium's GEN I wrote about the @thedailynu journalism / Jeff Sessions protest pile-on and why I think these students will come out of the experience as better at news. twitter.com/GENmag/status/…
“Man alive... there’s a Mandalorian alive in there!” — line I suggested to Jon Favreau that was probably just cut for time or budgetary reasons. #DisneyPlus

It’s had a few server errors and Apple TV buries the app in search, but Disney+ is pretty wow once you get it installed and playing 4K stuff. “Bao” still cry-worthy, “Empire” in HDR is great, “Endgame” on launch day as promised. https://t.co/nsn5phqDd3

My second big TV post today ties together with the first -- for @Medium's @GENmag site, I wrote about why Netflix's mediocre TV shows problem could finally create huge problems for the company bit.ly/33lm51C
A few weeks ago, the Paul Rudd-led Netflix show "Living With Yourself" arrived on a wave of good will. And then people stopped talking about it pretty quickly. I wrote for @primetimercom about why the show failed to double its buzz once people saw it bit.ly/2CletQQ
Well, this is cool, my @ozm post about my #LEGO life got listed on @Medium‘s Featured page. Thanks, y’all! onezero.medium.com/how-i-became-a…
You know how they say an athlete left everything out on the field? That’s what @ParasiteMovie feels like, a filmmaker throwing everything he has into a movie that just vibrates with purpose and energy and surprises. Bong Joon-ho’s masterpiece.
RT @TaraAriano: @omarg They should. However, it's free on Prime.
I really enjoyed #DolemiteIsMyName on Netflix, but why didn’t Netflix get the rights to the original movie to stream right after? Would love to check it out for comparison. Seems like a weird missed opportunity.

We were in line for a #txbookfest kids’ book signing. Everybody’s watching a squirrel play in the road and it got run over. We heard the bones crunch, it was awful. All the kids in line go, “NOOOOOO!” and some cry. They keep watching as it’s run over repeatedly, flipping about.
