I've always loved 'outbreak' but somehow missed seeing 'contagion.'  how does it compare?  I'd be very surprised if it provides a character on the level of colonel sam daniels.

Contagion is really good. But it's a more grounded, realistic, "what if" take on its subject matter. So no, there's no Sam Danielses chewing scenery and no helicopter chase scenes.

Outbreak, Contagion, and 12 Monkeys was my go-to Virus movie trilogy a couple weekends ago.

Outbreak is the superior picture.

God the movie was flaming COVID-induced diarrhea. The book is so superior and if HBO/Prime doesn’t grab it for a miniseries soon, I’m going to be pissed.

Tried watching the latest Godzilla last night.  My god it sucked.  Got about half way and my wife and I just looked at each other and had the same thought 'What the fuck are we doing?'

I started this about 5 days ago. Been watching two Frazier's and two Seinfeld's from episode 1 every night before bed. 

it cannot be understated just how horrible that Seinfeld pilot was and how much they had to change to make it watchable. 

Realized pretty quickly that during this virus outbreak I feel like Niles Crane afraid to touch anything and wiping everything down first.

Started going through DVD’s for the first time in 10 years last night. Forgot I had every season of Newsradio and Kids in The Hall. 
 

Gonna watch Better Off Dead tonight with the kids. They’ll be frightened at how funny I find it.

Very good so far, but I'm only through half of episode 2 of 5.  Pacing myself, have the kids home from college right now so I've been taking them on Boat rides and grilling meat.

For pandemic themed entertainment:

Outbreak (movie) - obviously a classic, currently on Netflix

Pandemic (Netflix miniseries) - thought it was okay, lots of fluff about certain people that I found kinda boring, could've been 50% shorter

Contagion (movie) - assuming most people have seen this, but if not, it's a pretty interesting depiction that could mirror real life pretty soon

The Last Town on Earth (book by Thomas Mullen) - historical fiction novel about a small town that quarantined itself during the 1918 influenza pandemic and prevented outsiders from entering. I really enjoyed it but it's been a while since I read it.

https://www.amazon.com/Last-Town-Earth-Novel/dp/0812975928

Pandemic (board game) - good for 2-4 players, players are all on the same team against the game, trying to prevent the pandemic from killing humanity. Wife and I have been playing it lately. Each game takes 30-60 minutes, pretty fun if you like games.

https://www.amazon.com/Z-Man-Games-ZM7101-Pandemic/dp/B00A2HD40E

 

My 2 teenage boys and myself stopped down for one yesterday.  Its campy/stupid but not that bad...thank me later

I present...Cooties

Oh, I'm jealous. The Americans might be my second favorite series of all-time, right behind Breaking Bad. 

Same. The Americans is underrated and fantastic.

Mine is the same. It took a lot of convincing to get her to go see They Shall Not Grow Old.

She loved it.

Listen to me woman. I know what I'm talking about
