Marvel’s Daredevil

Binge watched seasons 1 and 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix over nine days. Loved the first season, and thought the second season was better. Character development was mature, so storylines and action sequences felt more intense. Definitely worth watching.

Next to watch: Marvel’s Jessica Jones.

Arrested Development is hilarious!

Amy and I finally watched all episodes of Arrested Development this year, and have continued to watch them repeatedly on Netflix. It’s a riot, and very relatable.

In Season 2, Episode 10, “Ready, Aim, Marry Me!” — which features Martin Short as Uncle Jack — has me cracking up with laughter. “Eye level! Eye level!”

NBC app on Apple TV

I saw the new NBC app on my 3rd generation Apple TV home screen a couple of days ago, and it appeared to have full TV episodes of their latest shows.

Checking season 3 of The Blacklist, I was bummed the first episode was no longer available. I rented it on Apple TV, then watched the second episode in the NBC app.

Observations — I’d mute the TV during commercials (between 60–120 seconds). There was a weird block of commercials between the final scene and credits. On the other hand, maybe it makes sense when binge watching, because the start of the next episode is immediate.

Overall, all went well, and I’m on my way to catching up. Nifty to have another option.

Write a post on your TV

I can comfortably write in Simplenote, WordPress, or Day One apps on our TV. If I don’t want my laptop on my lap, or my iPhone in my hands, this is another option.

I starting writing instructions, but realized Apple has solid support documents. 🙂
