Why I Only Watch Decorating Shows

I'm sorry to have been so slack in posting, but I've been tied up watching bad movies on Netflix. It's a demanding life. Most recently, I was sucked into Riverworld, which turned out to be an absolute dog, a barking dog. It was based (pretty loosely) on some old favorite science fiction novels by Philip Jose Farmer, but took so much license with the original that it wound up as generic television gibberish. The actors had all the depth of Barbie and Ken and the script is moronic.

Saki thought the pacing was erratic.

  1. Thank you for that "Riverworld" review. I also saw it listed in Netflix, and I, too, remember the book fondly from my younger years. But I've been hesitant to watch it. So thanks for sacrificing a slice of your life, so that the rest of us don't have to!
