  1. I’ve tried watching Disenchantment over the last week, keep falling asleep so i guess Netflix is getting a lot of views

    and happy b-day Norm

  2. After 5 episodes or so disenchantment gets better. The end is really out of the expected.

    But the mix of flat and funny jokes is very strange.

  3. I just rewatched Stranger Things this weekend. It’s a good rewatch and I could get more a feel of the dynamics and design of the story.

    Good stuff. Do it.
