    We finished the 30th episode of Ozark and we'll have to wait until 2021 for the next season. It's a fascinating look at how evil can mutate even the most normal of families. Now it's on to The Crown in which we've only seen the first three episodes but it's been very enjoyable. Although I keep expecting a Tardis to appear whenever Prince Phillip is on screen. Waiting in the wings is Dead to Me with Christina Applegate. My wife enjoyed the pilot; me, not as much.

    It is on Youtube - I am sure having a 4 & 6 year old home 7 days a week leaves you plenty of free time

    Edit: And I forgot the new kittens, congratulations by the way, who I am sure will not cause any problems either.

    Oh, yes, so much free time! Though I am getting more watching on my own done now that we're in a house and the kids have more room to go do things without hanging on me all the time.

    There is a new british mystery series I have been watching is traces it is about a young woman you moves back to her home city to work in forensics lab. The training video reminds her of her mothers unsolved murder and she starts sleuthing around.

    Filmed in these parts, though the story geography is, as ever when you know the area, disjointed and confused. She works in quite the oddest lab, run by quite the oddest people--which is a pity, given that it's inspired by a real facility.

    Sometimes the reality of the geography doesn't match what the story tellers have in mind.

    Oh, I know. It shakes you out of the story if you recognize the impossible sequence of settings, though. The worst ever was Sunshine on Leith, which is set in Edinburgh. There's a scene in which a character sets off to walk to the railway station, and is seen passing a series of Edinburgh landmarks in a completely random order. There was great hilarity and a few shouted jokes in the cinema.

    Laked the ending of Traces. Today it is war movies like the Great Escape and the Dirty Dozen, what a wonderful group of role models. Staying in do to some typing and let a sun burn heal a little.

    Sylvester Stalllone's iconic run through Philadelphia in Rocky also took him past several recognizable landmarks, ending with him sprinting up the 70 steps of the Art Museum. Somebody carefully traced his route during the montage and calculated that to re-create his daily exercise regimen, one would have to run nearly 31 miles.

    An Officer and a Gentleman was filmed in my town. There's a scene in which Richard Gere has a brief fight with some townies. He then jumps in the car with his friends and they drive off. Straight at the ferry dock about 100 feet away. The street in question was actually the exit from the dock, you can even see the arrows on the street pointing the other direction in the film.
    A new dock has been built since then in a different location.

    Ozark, ostensibly taking place around The Lake of the Ozarks, MO, was largely filmed around Atlanta. We’ve gotten a kick out of seeing familiar landmarks and shooting locations.

    I've written a time or two about Mythic Los Angeles, the LA that appears in TV and movies, and how little resemblance it bears to the real Los Angeles.

    Meanwhile, we've been watching a series called Still Standing, where the guy who plays Crabtree on The Murdoch Mysteries goes to small towns around Canada, learns about them, and then does stand-up aimed at the people of the town. It's been really funny, and it's an interesting way of looking at small-town life. And this morning, Irene has declared that she wants to watch Spider-Man, so Into the Spider-Verse it is.

    SpaceX manned launch! About three hours from now. The astronauts are being driven to the pad in a Tesla.

    Been recording "Grant" on the History channel and watched the first episode last night, very good history lesson, esp his youth and how his life developed from there.

    Still Standing is great! The Season 5 Churchill, MB episode just won some awards. Jonny Harris is a delight (he often steals the show, for me, on Murdoch Mysteries).
