I'd say this about all the Disney+ Marvell shows thus far, they're ok in the moment, but nothing super memorable. I think this long-drawn-out TV format that things have migrated towards just isn't great... there's realistically only a 2-3 hours of story/script, but they drag it out over 8-10hrs it feels.
I find the great majority of current TV series' feel like that to me and it's why I watch very little TV these days.

I may be weird or I may not be but I've been enjoying the new Dexter season, feels a lot like the older seasons.

question for you guys...what sports do you like to watch?

I like slow sports, so curling, lawn bowling, darts and such.
I used to watch F1 with my Dad when I was younger I find it hard to watch as an adult. I actually dislike watching most sports I'd rather be participating than watching. I don't care for hockey, indoor volleyball is boring, basket ball all of it I find really hard to watch.

Wife's grandparents love curling and they always ask for it to be on when they are visiting. I can tolerate it because of the strategy involved but the actual action itself sometimes feels as exciting as watching paint dry.

The only sport I watched say more than a couple hours over the past couple years has been professional level disk golf. I have actually been looking into getting a set of disks because there are some courses in the surrounding area and it seems like a good way to spend a couple hours basically going for a walk and throwing a frisbee. I know being good at it is a lot more than that and like most things it is difficult to master but it seems like an easy thing to pick up and I could involve my oldest kid.

While I was still in Kendo I'd watch tournaments and such but with the situation at home, work scehdules, kids etc I stopped going a while ago and kinda stopped watching at the same time.

Even though I don't watch it anymore I'd still love to go try watching a live race. They were having indy races in Edmonton for a couple years before they banned the event, however at the time I was a broke student with massive student loans. Justifying the ticket price on my limited budget at the time was really hard so I never went. The year I could afford it was the year they banned it.

Edit: Was kinda soul crushing each year they ran it as I was close enough to the city center airport that I could hear the cars all day long.

Given the option though I'd definitely want to go to a city circuits like Melboune. Even 100's of hours I put into Gran Turismo 3 in high school my favorite circuits were always the city ones.

Won Undrid An Atey!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't understand darts enough to know what that means. I watched a lot of darts at lunch time...but the last time I did watch was 4+ years ago.

Maybe I didn't do a good enough job of trying to spell it out phonetically.....

It's essentially the Darts version of Soccer's Goooooaaaaaaalllllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
