been watching this on netflix lately. it's ok, but not great. two pumpkins.

8) 8)


Isn't it amazing how many mediocre shows can last and last now thanks to all these streaming services? Remember back when it was a BIG deal if a show made it for a decade?? Now a show runs for 5+ years just because it fills a slot in a digital library.

which i can appreciate, as it seems like most of the shows i enjoy get cancelled way too early (by my watch).

I'll always like Tyranny better. But this one is a firm second place. It's nice to hear in surround. I'm not sure why "This Ain't The Summer Of Love" wasn't part of the video, only audio.

I'm not big on the Grateful Dead, this morning th' folks attempted to educate me with.....

Image

The Grateful Dead Movie

Th' blurb.....

The Grateful Dead Movie, released in 1977 and directed by Jerry Garcia, is a film that captures live performances from rock band the Grateful Dead during an October 1974 five-night run at Winterland in San Francisco. These concerts marked the beginning of a hiatus, with the October 20th, 1974, show billed as "The Last One". The band would return to touring in 1976. The film features the "Wall of Sound" concert sound system that the Dead used for all of 1974. The movie also portrays the burgeoning Deadhead scene. Two albums have been released in conjunction with the film and the concert run: Steal Your Face and The Grateful Dead Movie Soundtrack.

I'm still not convinced, however there were a few distractions caveside, so it may take another watch or two.....

it's a campy show, for sure, and a lot of it's fake and the show is more or less a gordon ramsay commercial,
but mrs. gravy and I like him. he seems to be a good guy behind all the tv drama.
it's fun to watch, and, every now and then, you can pick up some good tips for dinners and ingredients you haven't tried before.

My wife and I also watch this quite a bit. A good show to turn on in the evenings when you don't want to pay much attention!

Absolutely!! This episode caught me off guard. I wasn't paying attention and I started hearing music, so naturally I was drawn toward the tv. Hey that's Steve Vai!! Do you suppose Gordon saying that means they're friends??

yeah, I was really surprised too, the first time I saw it. and, well, I don't know if they're friends or not, but it sure sounds like it, doesn't it? 8)

I should have mentioned that one of my favorite parts Hell's Kitchen is when Gordon lays his fist into a piece of meat! Particularly fish, when it FLIES all over the kitchen with one swift strike! lol :D :D :D I know this is a horrible waste of food but it gets me every time.
