i'm not too worried or paranoid about it

i'm more concerned about my mobile phone and web footprint ;-)

it's a trade off i voluntarily participate in

as i understand it, 23&me can use/sell your data anonymously for science and/or research (they own some rights, but you can delete your if you so choose)

nebula genomics on the other hand gives you the option up front what to do with your data (you pay and they give you results and you can decide whether or not to sell your data to others for compensation)

i really enjoy the show

probably because i'm fascinated by the science and history involved

after seeing the first episode, i knew i had to get sequenced and start my journey to find out the particulars

as much as possible or about as much as they could be sussed out

i've done 23&me (sort of a broader take tilted toward your family tree)

next i did nebula genomics/george church's lab (way more detailed science)

i've since done viome (both tests) haven't gotten any results back yet on this

because i'm a curious bugger...

Just caught the first 2 episodes of The Kominsky Method.  Looks like I'll be binging that until I catch up to the current season.

Deputy - on Fox.  Didn’t think I would like this show, but I’m intrigued. Kind of gritty and like the Wild West but in present time.

It's interesting....but it always feels like a 20 minute show expanded to an hour by repeating everything 3 times.  I wish they'd follow one story and run it from end to start (because it's always going backward in time).  Finish one...move on.  The constant switching of stories is frustrating and boring.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey


Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is a 2014 American science documentary television series. The show is a follow-up to the 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which was presented by Carl Sagan on the Public Broadcasting Service and is considered a milestone for scientific documentaries.

It is available online (viewing and download) here.

Justine puts on Mrs. Maisel and I have been paying more and more attention to it. Season 3 Ep. 1 has some really interesting camera work, including a long opening single shot and a few other long uncut takes, and those made them set it all up like a stage production, not the usual edit/splice tape show. Some other episodes play around with quick edits, some West-Wing-style walk & talk dialog scenes... they're either doing homages to everything they love, or they're losing their grip... I get the feeling the show's about to jump the shark... every episode. But so far it's only gotten better.

Some of the characters are based on real people but aren't actually supposed to be that person (Johnny Mathis, Carol Kaye, Minnie Pearl), some (Lenny Bruce) are named specifically. So that's fun. 

Four Stars. Joe Bob says Check it out.
 

Guess we will have to sign up for long enough to stream season 3. I agree that it always seems to be teetering on going over the edge but so far has not.
 

Fwiw the Palladinos (husband and wife) are the creators and showrunners for Mrs. Maisel and were the same for "Gilmore Girls", a very popular dramedy in the US back in the oughts. Same type of comedy:  slightly cock-eyed take on unusual to almost improbable situations and relationships. 

The dialogue in the two shows are sorta the same: rat a tat tat cleverness verging on the surreal at times. Both great great shows and a welcome change from all the dark shows being made.
 

Mrs. Maisel is wonderful. I'm only part way through Season 3 but it keeps getting better.

Finished this last night! "Tits up!"
 
Loved the scene in season 1 (I think it was the first episode) where Midge gets very drunk and kills with an impromptu stand-up/striptease performance at the Gaslight Cafe.

Nobody
glowers like Tony Shalhoub.

If you're into slick teen dramas that occasionally veer into the realm of laughably stupidly improbable, "Riverdale" is pretty good.
