Monday Meandering is back, but where does one begin when they’ve been meandering in the pop culture desert for more than a year.
Well, I guess we’ll just start here and see which of the many bread crumbs I want to talk about most.
As a lifelong fan of SCTV and its alum, it pains me to admit that, for whatever reason, I missed this wonderful show during it’s initial run. However, thanks to the current pandemic and the magic of streaming, the wife and I were able to binge the series in it’s entirety in short order. It makes me happy in ways I can’t even begin to express to see Eugene Levy get some much overdue respect from the general populace. Seeing his son, Dan Levy, come into his own gives me an equal amount of joy. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
BETTER CALL SAUL
Breaking Bad is my favorite show of all time. For that reason alone, I avoided Better Call Saul for years. Then we did a family binge of Breaking Bad and El Camino. That only left the adventures of Saul Goodman as unwatched in the Heisen-verse. You know what? I was wrong to worry. Better Call Saul is amazing – easily as good as it’s predecessor. We’re about to embark on season 5. S’all Good Man.
THE IMMORTAL HULK
One of the great things about the pandemic (?), was that I discovered the Hoopla app provided by my local library. The app provides access to a ton of media that you can enjoy from the privacy of your own home on your very own devices. One such piece of media I found was Marvel’s Immortal Hulk.
Immortal Hulk finds Bruce Banner back from the dead (again), and righting wrongs in gruesome fashion. Immortal Hulk is more of a horror, body horror specifically, comic than a traditional superhero book. There are currently six collected volumes of the title. Give them a read. Al Ewing and Joe Bennett are doing amazing work here.
