The Good Stuff

Still Here (and Elsewhere)

I’ve been meaning to share my thoughts on some recent reads and watches, but I keep getting distracted and then time goes on and I still haven’t said anything and my site remains dusty and unused for weeks and months on end.

So here’s a quick list of things that I would have written about here had I had the time, and may end up coming back to sooner or later.

Mrs. Davis on Peacock is like a live action Tom Robbins novel, and is absolutely worth checking out.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is my new favorite live action Trek series of all time, but I’ve been loving all of the new stuff in general (and the crossover episode with Lower Decks, “Those Old Scientists,” is one of the best episodes of Trek, or indeed of anything, that I’ve seen in a LONG time).

I’m halfway through the first season of Apple TV+’s Foundation adaptation and really, really impressed with it so far.

I recently finished rereading one of my favorite science fiction series of novels, Kage Baker’s Company series, and it remains every bit as good as I remembered it being.

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie is absolutely fantastic, and FAR better than it has a right to be.

For the last few months I’ve been reading all of the Krakoa-era X-Men titles in publication order starting with the 2019 releases, and as of now I’m almost caught up with this year’s releases, and I have been really impressed with the overall level of quality.

And finally, now that Twitter has been well and truly x-ed, I should note that I’m spending most of my social media time over on Bluesky these days, where you can find me at

    You’re the one who inspired me to read the Company series, if I recall correctly. Glad to hear it holds up.

    I’m still trying to catch up on the Krakoa era – my next one up is last year’s Hellfire Gala.
