Enjoying QUEEN'S GAMBIT. Although with streaming, a show like this comes and goes so quickly that it becomes a distant memory fairly quickly. Scott Frank, who is directing this, directed GODLESS, which I quite enjoyed last year but now has little resonance for me. I guess this has always been true of books and movies, but tv used to give one a longer experience. Mary Richards from Mary Tyler Moore was with us for years for 25 episodes a year. You can binge Queen's Gambit (6 episodes) in a day. Not that I like to watch that quickly. I am glad HBO still shows one episode a week. What's the hurry. If this goes on for a long time, won't the content be used up.
I am trying the ONE-DAY UNIVERSITY idea but it isn't really working for me. Either I know more about the subject than the audience they are lecturing to (Alfred Hitchcock) or far less and I need more of an introduction. Well, it is only $8.00 a month so if I cancel it before the month is out, I didn't lose much.
My book club (Z00M) met to discuss LAB GIRL. We all loved it and I highly recommend it.
Nearing the end of BORGEN, which was so good. I hope the fourth season comes soon.
Listening to REBECCA, reading a great Cary Grant bio, and DEEP WATER by Patricia Highsmith.
Watched THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO SEVEN. Frank Langella stole the show. What a horrible judge Julius Hoffman was. The last hour was quite riveting as the defense tried to outflank him.
So what about you?
