Watched "Ghosts" D&D from Paramount+
D&D: Directed by Nick Wong. With Rose McIver, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Brandon Scott Jones, Danielle Pinnock. After Jay is kicked out of a Dungeons and Dragons game with his city friends, Sam agrees to facilitate a new one between him and the ghosts; Isaac confronts his feelings for Nigel, a ghost from whom he's been keeping a gigantic secret.
This show isn’t good at handling the vast amounts of context that Jay is missing in the conversations with the ghosts. He just sits there not showing how uncomfortable things really must be for himself and it makes him seem so much less human.
Watched "Tattoo Redo" Hot Mess, Spicy Bets from Netflix
Hot Mess, Spicy Bets: With Matt Beckerich, Rose Hardy, Miryam Lumpini, Tommy Montoya. Twig gives a silly chile a spicy makeover, Matt replaces Michael Jackson's glove with a rose, and Tommy vanquishes a quote from "Gladiator."
The second episode isn’t any better. The artists’ work is great, but there’s not any real drama or surprise here.
Watched "Tattoo Redo" Who's Ready to See Some Bad Tattoos? from Netflix
Who's Ready to See Some Bad Tattoos?: With Matt Beckerich, Rose Hardy, Miryam Lumpini, Tommy Montoya. Matt transforms a black blob into a bouquet, Tommy Montoya gives a raunchy quote a skull and 'shrooms redo, while Rose tackles a tribute to an ex.
Lowest common denominator television. Watching out of morbid curiosity.
Watched “Shetland” Red Bones: Part 2 from BritBox
Directed by Peter Hoar. With Gemma Chan, Steven Robertson, Douglas Henshall, Alison O'Donnell. With two murders and no strong leads, can Perez apprehend the suspect before crowds descend on the Shetland Islands for Up Helly Aa, the biggest fire festival in Europe?
The Up Helly Aa could have been used to up the stress and tension even more than it did here.

While a good pair of episodes, I think I definitely liked the book better , especially for building character.

Watched “Shetland” Red Bones: Part 1 from BritBox
"Shetland" Red Bones: Part 1 Directed by Peter Hoar. With Sandra Voe, Douglas Henshall, Erin Armstrong, Steven Robertson. As DI Jimmy Perez investigates the murder of an elderly lady who is shot dead outside her croft, he finds evidence of a massive, bitter dispute between two families.
Finally circling back to watch some of the earlier episodes that I either missed or only caught portions of on PBS airings.

Subscribed to BritBox just for this (and its new season) and a few other things in the coming weeks.

Dozens of Chinese stowaways are discovered in a container ship in California; Toby looks to pick a fight over school prayer with a recess appointment; Thanksgiving at the White House sees C.J. in charge of turkeys and Charlie looking for the ultimate carving knife.
Watched "Breaking Bad" Felina from Netflix
Felina: Directed by Vince Gilligan. With Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris. Walter White makes one last attempt to secure his family's future, while also visiting some old enemies, during his final return to Albuquerque.
I’d started rewatching all five seasons this past year, this finally puts the cap on my second viewing of the whole series. Still solid, though it’s not as compelling as watching it the first time. Knowing how things turn out does dampen a bit of the excitement.
Watched "The Great British Baking Show" Episode #12.9 from Netflix
Episode #12.9: With Noel Fielding, Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith, Matt Lucas. It's the Bake Off semi-final, and time to test the remaining bakers' abilities in patisserie. There's a delicate layered slice that demands precision, a regional French classic, and then the bakers must create an opulent entremets display.
A shocking turn at the end of this episode. They should have had all four go to the final.
