I got to see Detective Pikachu with my family, and damn if it isn’t an adorable movie.  It has it moments of inconsistency and mood swings, but it was still worth the price of admission to me.

Long-time listeners know that I’m a big fan of the Eurovision Song Contest despite being a Yankee. Unfortunately, the folks at Eurovision have a plan to bring something similar to America (read: the United States), and it’s the worst idea they could have possibly imagined. I explain why in this episode, but needless to say I think this idea is a really, really bad idea unless they …. well, I’ll let you listen in.

Sharp is returning to the US with Hisense, which is a very interesting thing considering the lawsuit from a few years ago.  Unfortunately, thanks to the current administration, TV prices might go up.  Disney now controls Hulu, John Wick shoots to the top for the weekend, a Knights of the Old Republic movie might be in the works, the thrashing of the Sonic trailer causes the director to slow down the release date, and there’s a lot more.

As always, please visit for the latest episodes and show notes.

  1. I didn’t even go see “Once upon a time in Hollywood”, even though it was on 70mm in the Cinerama Dome. I doubt I will ever watch it, in any format. That’s how little I care about such things anymore. I have considered hiring someone to edit all the DCP movie information out of your podcast. Because You are fun to listen to and I do miss the show. But a silly man caring on about YouTube videos coming to theater would not do me too well. On a Happier note, My JBL Studio 530’s have arrived. Yay! JBL is making them again! Now all I need is a chunky amp to drive them properly. They smell really nice too. Makes the room smell nice. What an unexpected perk.

    Star Trek Picard Looks cool. I am actually temped to sign up for CBS’s stupid streaming services.
    1980’s VHS vs Beta
    2010’s BD vs HD-DVD
    2020; Streaming service battle royal.
