    I noticed The Eye of the Beholder: The Art of Dungeons & Dragons was around, and I do want to watch it sometime.

    Not really Netflix but Amazon Prime: I recently watched the short documentary "The Eye of the Beholder: The Art of Dungeons & Dragons." Having been surrounded by that art in my younger days and a one-time avid Roleplayer I found it to be fascinating and well done. It follows the evolution of D&D Art in parallel with the evolution of TSR up to its absorption into Wizards of the Coast with just brief touches on the art from 3rd Edition on (Todd Lockwood, etc). The lion's share is about the early artists who started it all and then the growth to the "Four Horsemen" of TSR in the 80's: Clive Caldwell, Jeff Easley, Larry Elmore, and the late Keith Parkinson. It includes interviews with several of the 90's freelancers as well (Brom, DiTerlizzi, etc) and explores how D&D art has influenced pop Fantasy/Sci-Fi in general. For any fan of such art or any fan of D&D, I highly recommend it.

    I really now realize I have seen many of the 3rd season episodes of TNG, but I am watching them again. Spectacular show. Before, when I tried to watch ( in 2014 ) I was not so much impressed as I was when I saw many episodes friends taped of several seasons for me in the 90s. Today I am enjoying it a lot.

    CBS Trek is ear shattering, but I try to balance the sound.

    I am up to Season 5 on my TNG re-watch 2019-2020.

    Inner Light and Time's Arrow will be coming up soon.

    I think Netflix streams the TNG Blu-ray copies.

    They are really something to watch.

    It's good to see episodes that link to Star Trek: Picard, as well.
    A friend of mine who is a major trekker has lent me a DVD with the episode Inner Light, which has become a favorite of mine.

    Picard has just the best character of the whole franchise played by the best actor in the franchise and what I loved about it ( besides the Romulans integrated with the Federation ) was that the plot spans over the series, unlike TNG where things are more formulaic. I loved Picard so much that it made me want to watch TNG, something I had been avoiding because I was afraid it had not aged well.

    I have watched the second season of Glow, which is pretty good too.
    I just can't get enough of GLOW and Stranger Things!

    I've been watching the Witcher and reading The Invisible Library - both won't exist, I'm sure without Mike. Enjoying both but missing the Real Thing.

    I like Witcher, but Mike regards it as Theft. While I think it’s entirely possible the original Polish work was independently developed from common tropes, I find it hard to argue that it’s a hell of a coincidence, given
    1) bleached white skinned and bleached white hair swordsman
    2) called The White Wolf
    3) in a world where chaos is the source of magic
    But, I do think that maybe there’s a new aesthetic expressed in this series. It is not a darling of the critics, though the general public loves it. Many fans my age think it feels too much “like a game.” But, young fans overwhelmingly love it. So, maybe this is a generational aesthetic.

    I LOVED Black Mirror.
    All the episodes are great, so me are excellent.
    I've rewatched some of them, as I originally binge watched them and missed the full meaning and depth of some of them on the first watch.

    I wanted to like "The Witcher" series, but I think as I got burned out from Game of Thrones, I kind of lost interest in the story of Witcher. I realise the stories are very different, I just didn't feel like getting into it at the time.
    I might give it another go one day.
    I loved the Witcher 3 game though.
