what’s on.. my tivo…

an occasional look at my video/streaming/video/show watching, whew..

Some notes on my list..

  • A few new PBS’ series I hadn’t got to yet…
  • CBS Sunday Morning episodes I often watch with dinner…
  • The Magicians is an older favorite, and new episodes are online to watch later (the link takes me to both my recordings, if any, and streaming episodes)…
  • Southern Charm is a guilty pleasure (I used to live in Charleston)…
  • Project Blue Book – the show was cancelled after 2nd season, but I have all of Season 2 to watch, or not.

In comments, if anyone can guess who what show is partly visible in the upper right-hand corner, has good eyes ;)…

The Profound Strangeness of HBO Max’s Wolfgang Puck Series ‘The Event’

And the first two installments — the dinner and after-party at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards, and then a small two-day conference of entrepreneurs held, for reasons withheld from us, in the cavernous Rose Bowl — go off with only the sort of mishaps that these caterers have seen before.

Biden Revives Presidential Tradition, Releasing First Weekly Address

This photo was taken moments before U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt began his historic “Fireside Chat” to the American people on March 12, 1933. President Biden is reviving the practice, used by many modern presidents but ditched by Trump, of directly addressing the public through a weekly address.

Biden’s first address was a conversation with a woman who lost her job during the pandemic. The White House says Biden will use a “variety of forms” in his take on the weekly radio address.
