Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

SIXKIWI Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifiers for Bedroom, 3L 30Hours Essential Oil Diffuser for Large Room,Easy Top Fill&Clean,Never Leak,Whisper-Quiet,Auto Shut-Off for Home Office Baby(White&Grey):
Cementing Amazon's lead in becoming the #1 "giant flea market full of counterfeit goods where every product title is stuffed full of search keywords" is the humidifier department. None of these humidifiers last for more than a year or two, and by that time any past research into humidifiers is moot because all of the companies have retired their products and replaced them with slightly different knock-offs and a brand new batch of 5000 fake positive reviews.

The nice features of this one are that it has a single dim light which can be covered with electrical tape, and it can be filled from the top. The con: a single fill will only last for one night because there is only one setting, "MONSOON". As soon as you crack the knob out of the OFF position, the humidifier begins spewing dank clouds of moisture like dry ice in an 80s rock video. There is very little difference in output if you continue to rotate the knob another 359 degrees, although the MAX setting will cause the water horse from Frozen 2 to appear and gallop off into the distance. Would not recommend this, even for your Home Office Baby.

Final Grade: D

Good Girls, S3:
The third season of Good Girls immediately discards some of the most interesting ideas birthed in the last season finale. The whole season treads water and plays it safe, as if the writers really don't know how to evolve the characters. I liked the sideplots involving the changes to Ruby's family dynamics but the other leads felt wasted. There are many individual scenes full of funny dialogue, but it's not quite worth slogging through the plot to get to them. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: C

Tongue-Tied by Earl:
A collection of catchy songs from a female vocalist in the vein of Caro Emerald and the electroswing movement. The title track is a good representative track.

Final Grade: B

Coming 2 America:
The first fifteen minutes of this movie are weighed down by obligatory call-backs to the original (including repeated old jokes), but it eventually manages to work on its own terms. Old fans will appreciate it more but Rebecca liked it in spite of having never watched the original. Free on Amazon Prime.

Final Grade: B-
