|Jessie Spano looks on|
We don't just watch movies at Signal Watch HQ. If I'm being candid, re-employment and other things have reduced my time for movie watching. But I'm also watching a movie or two per week for the PodCast, plus editing and posting, all of which takes time. And I do write up stuff when I watch a movie.
This post is not your opportunity to recommend shows to me (please don't), and I am not telling you anything is essential and must be watched. Sometimes we just say "hey, this is what we watched" when it comes to TV.
So what have we been up to on the TV side of the spectrum?
Chicago Cubs Baseball
This is a mistake in 2022. Since the Ricketts got their World Series win in 2016, burning through all the Cubs karma and possibly all of that for the Planet Earth to secure a win, the team has disintegrated in spectacular fashion. They're usually 4th in the NL Central. Which is like not being the absolute worst team in the worst division in baseball.
Cubs gonna cub.
Austin FC Futbol
I was a massive skeptic of Austin's foray into Major League Soccer, but we got a team that started in 2021, and I've watched about 80% of their matches on TV or online. I have not yet been to the stadium. I now follow the team and try to make sense of a sport that I've struggled to grok in its complexity for my entire adult life.
It's still fun! I'm kinda into it.
