Netlfix Fridays: What Are We Watching Now?

We've managed to watch quite a few movies this week - even sandwiched in between lots of season finales (Lost: amazing, 30 Rock & The Office: awesome!, House: meh, Bones: horrible!!) Goodbye, TV - see you again in September!

Battlestar Gallactica: Season 4, Disc 2 - Still plodding along through this series. As well done as it is, it certainly doesn't have the adrenaline rush of watching 24, or the maddening puzzles of Lost which keep you breathlessly waiting for the next disc. The first disc of this season was really just a 2-hour movie about mostly unknown characters, so to me this will really be the setting off point for Season 4. Hope it's going to be a good one!

Dr. Katz, Disc 7 - We're still working our way through Dr. Katz as well, but his is much more fun! We're about halfway through the entire series at this point and it's still damn funny! Can't wait to see how many times they get Ray Ramono on this time. He's practically a supporting character he's on so often! Nothing wrong with that, of course, because he always brings the funny.

Crazy Love - I've been waiting to see this one for a while. Here's what Netflix has to say: "This documentary from director Dan Klores chronicles the disturbing true story of an obsessive relationship gone awry in 1950s New York between Burt Pugach, a married lawyer, and his twenty-something mistress, Linda Riss. In a shocking reversal of the traditional "woman scorned" formula, it was Pugach who came unglued when Riss broke up with him -- and the subsequent fallout made headlines across the country. " I mean, just look at this guy! He's got whack-job written all over him!


  1. CrazyLove is a completely disturbing film, but engrossing as well. One of those stories, that you have a hard time believing it's actually true.

  2. Have you seen this one yet? Holy Crap, I didn't know anything about it when I started watching it online. I was cooking in my kitchen, when the big thing happened, and I was so shocked I dropped my spoon. He did WHAT?
