I just finished watching the first 'season' of Ren: The Girl With the Mark. Like Dragon Age: Redemption, it is a series of webisodes about 9 minutes each. They all add up to a mini-movie about 45 minutes long. Amazon has it all put together into one episode. I believe it is also on YouTube.

It was really good. Like Mythica, it is another indie fantasy adventure story. I thought the setting was really cool. Lots of neat ideas and mythology that they hint it. I liked the protagonist: the eponymous Ren. My only dislike is that it is over. I look forward to more. I wish there was a novel to go with the show.

I watched the second episode of Batwoman. Once again, it was solid. The plot has been very personal for these first two episodes. It is good. It gives Kate/us an immediate, personal stake in events. Often a series is not that personally focused right at the get go. It makes for a very engaging start.

Thug Notes - The Heart of Darkness A really good review of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. I read it a few months ago. This guy is spot on. Thug style.

I finished watching the 2004 Battlestar Galactica. It was good mostly, but not great. The show really fell off the rails after the second season. Though it certainly had issues before that. Mainly in that they went for over the top drama. Every episode has some sort of manufactured conflict, even if it requires characters acting out of character to make it happen. Plus lots of gratuitous sex, again, even if there is no reason for the two characters to hook up - like Starbuck and Baltar, or Tigh and Caprica Six. Then there are no consequences for anyone's actions. At least until the final season. Then they decided to start killing off the characters since they knew they show was ending.

The ending was... less than stellar. It was also really depressing. Though that is a separate from the explanation for everything being "God did it."

Tonight I fired up the pilot movie of the original series - Saga of a Star World. It is nice to see Richard Hatch playing a good guy. Even after all these years, there is still a lot to like about the original show. I still love the original centurions, especially their voices. That "By your command!" is pure awesome. I love the original Cylon fighters and base ships. Though I did I like the base ships in the reboot series too.

I love the Colonial Warrior outfits, especially the jackets. The original vipers are also fantastic.

I finished the last of the Mythica movies today, Godslayer. It was good. They are all good. If you ever played tabletop RPGs, you will adore it. It has kind of a sad ending, but they certainly showed it coming. But even then, it is not all that sad. I highly recommend all five movies.

I just finished bingeing Dad of Light, a Netflix original series. It's a short (8 episodes, each less than 30 minutes long) Japanese series about a young man working in an office and living at home with his parents. He is flummoxed when his workaholic dad suddenly quits his job, but is unable to ask him why since they haven't had a close, or even a speaking relationship with each other in quite some time. This young man plays Final Fantasy XIV every night after work, so he gets the idea to introduce his dad to the game. He buys his dad a PS3 (or was it PS4, I can't recall) console and hooks him up into the game. Then he runs upstairs and secretly logs into the game and meets his dad's character in game, only Dad doesn't know Akio plays the game too.

It's light, it's enjoyable, and fun because so much of the show takes place inside the game. The sense of camaraderie shared by online players remind me so much of ESO that I had fun watching it. When Akio finally discovers the real reason his dad quit, I wasn't too surprised, as I've seen that trope before - it seems quite prevalent in Korean and Chinese dramas as well. But I thought it was well handled.
