    Game of Thrones cast members are everywhere.

    Recently I've watched The Tunnel starring Stephen Dillane / Stannis Baratheon. It's the British take on The Bridge (out of Denmark, which was also remade in the US but I have no interest in the latter).

    I binge watched Iron Fist even though it's the weakest of the Marvel Netflix shows. Jessica Henwick (Nymeria Sand) was the best part of it - along with scenes with Jeri and Claire.

    And it's Amazon pilot season again. I'm still looking forward the last pilot season's offspring - the upcoming The Tick series and the Jean Claude Van Damme thing. But I watched the pilot for Oasis. Can't resist near future space stuff. But it was an oddly moving to see a scene with Richard Madden (Robb Stark) and Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon).

    Dang, I'd love to get to Cuba soon. Considered it for Spring break for the kid, but Palm Springs / Joshua Tree was way cheaper.

    Also just booked a train ticket from Denmark to Germany where the train cars roll up onto a ferry, crosses the water and then the train pops back out onto tracks.

    In general TV news, britbox is now available in the US. I had been soooooo excited, thinking I would be able to watch season 4 of Endeavour. But they don't have Endeavour at all, even though they do have Inspector Morse.

    Free 7 day trial though, to see what else they've got. Then $6.99/month.

    That'd be a Beast / Wolverine mash-up straight out of some bad fan fic.

    Hmmm I'm a Kit Harrington fan but I don't know if he can pull off the Wolverine attitude. Maybe.

    Nearly forgot, I just watched The Girl With All the Gifts as well. And yeah, the book was better.

    @jonbehm Also, want to visit Mongolia super bad. It's amazingly gorgeous.

    Same! A friend - who used to live here - married a Mongolian guy. I want to go visit her.

    I loved Logan. Beloved characters so frail and failing - it was perfectly done. I saw the movie with my Dad, who is now in his 70s, and I was with him every step of the way when his mother had Alzheimer's back in the 90s. Stephen Merchant's performance as Caliban was a surprise and a delight. And I found the kid compelling. Laura, portrayed by child actor Dafne Keen.

    Also watched I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore. Melanie Lynskey is underrated and I love her. I have a soft spot for Elijah Wood as well. And hey, David Yow on screen is always fun.

    I keep thinking Noah Wyle when I watch Marvel's Legion, done by Noah Hawley. Different Noah.

    Also, I am all for good dental hygiene. But someone in my office building uses those disposable flosser tools and then LEAVES THEM ON THE FLOOR. I've seen them on the floor of the parking garage, in a hallway and in the parking lot. There are trash cans all over the place.
