Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

Spypoint Force-20 Trail Camera:
This is a great outdoor camera in the under $100 range. It's easy to set up, runs on 8 AA batteries, and records to a standard SD disk. The night vision works well and the motion sensor does a reasonable job of ignoring false positives.

Final Grade: B+

Bosch, Season Seven:
I was really frustrated by the "slice of life" style of the early seasons of Bosch, full of long, lingering reaction shots and scenes that didn't do much to propel the plot. It took four seasons before I really appreciated it. The seventh and final season wraps everything up nicely although the series is less about a huge culmination and more about hanging out with the characters for a little bit longer. Not the best season, but definitely not the worst (which was probably the one where Bosch tried to be Jack Bauer by infiltrating a pill mill by himself). Free on Amazon Prime.

Final Grade: B

Money Heist, Season Five, Part One:
The next drop of episodes in the second heist (Season 3 - 5) keeps you guessing and has some strong character moments and resolutions. However, it's held back by some overused flashbacks of characters I cared less about and way too many guns. It reminded me of the difference in tone of LOST when there was just 1 gun on the whole island and LOST when everyone had a semi-automatic rifle. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: B

Off to the Races by Jukebox the Ghost:
An album of pleasant pop songs that starts strong and becomes more forgettable as it goes on. They share the same sound as several other groups in this area of music, but have some nice hooks. Just over 30 minutes long, which is a negative for me.

Final Grade: B-
