    I'm just going to go over to the google and check out the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist now.

    I'm not saying everyone should know the difference, and I'm always happy to explain it, but when a TV show or a movie uses the term interchangeably, it's just sloppy writing. Take a minute to research the character that you are writing about. Otherwise they just perpetuate the false concept that they are interchangeable or the same thing.

    And to save you the trip to Google, a psychiatrist is an MD, a medical doctor that has specialized in the treatment of mental health. A psychologist is a PhD, either from a science or arts background. Depending on their subspecialization, either can do psychotherapy, but only the psychiatrist would be covered by Alberta Health. Being a doctor, a psychiatrist can also prescribe medication. If they have trained in that area, psychologists can also do psychological testing, such as IQ testing, personality tests, neuropsychological testing, etc.

    I really liked Bonding. Thanks for the recommendation naf.

    Personally, I would have done the final episode differently, but it was a pretty fun watch overall.

     
    In particular, she had already shown that she was experienced enough to vet clients before seeing them in their place. It was a rookie mistake, and while it's a valid issue for workers in that area and I'm glad they addressed it, it would have been more appropriate if Mistress May had this issue in an earlier episode when she was less experienced. However, if I was writing, I would have left the reconciliation between Carter and May until the end, and have Carter trying to go on his own as a Dom but then, being inexperienced, have it him who gets in trouble with not vetting a client properly, and then May come to his rescue, at which time they reconcile. That could have set up a second season where May mentors Carter in becoming a Dom. But that's just me.

    Re: The TV Mega-Thread: The Truth is Out There

    Bonding was a fantastic show! I really hope they bring another couple seasons out for it. (And not just because of the copious amounts of latex in it...but that sure helps!)
    We've been watching Lucifer and just started the latest season put out by Netflix - only a couple episodes into the new season but I'm not sure if I'm digging where they're going with it. Time will tell. The TW has so many shows on the PVR that she needs to catch up with...
    Well, gentlemen, by all means, I think we ought to have an introspective moment of silence for poor old Tin-Tin.

    Just finished season 1 of Killing Eve. Definitely does not live up to the hype. Pretty stupid at times. But Jodie Comer is amazing.

    I was never a huge Big Bang fan but will say that the finale was better than the GoT ending! It sucks that so many really good shows have such terrible endings. MASH is a good example.

    ER had a great ending. House wasn't too bad. Buffy was fantastic!

    Yeah, Buffy was awesome. Breaking Bad finished well.

    Seinfeld was somewhat controversial in some loved it while others hated it, but I thought it was a fitting end to the series, even finishing with the first joke from the first episode, bringing it full circle.

    It's hard to wrap a series to everyone's satisfaction. The more hyped the show is, that harder it is.

    The best series finale ever was Six Feet Under. Breaking Bad and The Americans were very good as well.

    Looks like Cobra Kai season 2 is out.

    Edit:

    Good follow-up to the first season, and sets itself up nicely for the third season.

    Chernobyl was fantastic. Stark, suspenseful, horrifying and entertaining all in one. Just outstanding.

    Chernobyl was fantastic! Just the amount of...I can't even think of the word...the blind faith in what the party was telling everyone. Nothing to see here, please disperse, move along... Meanwhile birds are falling out of the sky and people are burning alive from the inside. I remember watching the news on satelite tv after the news finally broke and even then nobody really knew what was going on.

    Yes. One of the darkest episodes of TV I've ever watched.

    Re: The TV Mega-Thread: The Truth is Out There

    It looks like amazon prime is offering select additional video channels in Canada for additional fees. Most of these channels or bundles are currently available through normal cable or streaming apps, but it's nice to see alternative ways to watch select programming.

    Currently here's what they are offering (all are available as a free 30 day trial - and then billing will occur monthly through your amazon account):

    Stack TV - A package of cable channels owned by Corus including Global, Showcase, Treehouse, W Network, National Geographic, YTV, Teletoon, Adult Swim, Food Network, HGTV, History Channel, and Slice for $12.99/month

    Super Channel - Includes Super Channel Fuse, Heart & Home, and Vault for $9.99/month.

    Starz - $5.99/month

    Hayu - NBC/Universal's reality based streaming channel - $5.99/month

    Nickelodeon - $5.99/month

    AcornTV - $7.99/month

    OutTV - $3.99/month

    Shudder - $5.99/month

    I'm probably gonna give Shudder a trial run since it suits my movie tastes. Not sure if I'll keep it past the 30 day trial, but I do like that it bills through my amazon account and streams through the amazon prime app on my Nvidia Shield TV box. Hopefully we see more of this. Youtube offers TV packages you can stream in the US. I think options are always a good thing.

    Picked up Cobra Kai Seasons 1&2 for $15 on the weekend and it came with a reversible headband that I'm going to send to Bobo down in Calgary so he can really be the Karate Kid he obviously wants to be!!

    You cannot give Reputation to the same post twice.

    The fact that he looks like Johnny Lawrence makes this reference even better.

    First two episodes of The Mandalorian have been really good. Movie quality effects, great on a big screen with surround sound.

    The Watchmen has also been excellent.

    Watching Seven Seconds on Netflix. It's a pretty good show. Check it out.

    Also watching The Purge TV show. It's ok. I'm a bigger fan of the movies.

    Started watching Better Than Us on Netflix. Impressed so far but I’m also only three episodes in.

    I struggled through the first half of the first episode as I didn't enjoy the interactions with Mythrol, but have enjoyed it since he was frozen in carbonite.

    Re: The TV Mega-Thread: The Truth is Out There

    I haven't watched The Mandalorian for two reasons: 1. How many streaming services are there now? I'm already paying for Amazon Prime, Netflix, Crave_HBO. Too much already. The second reason is that I haven't really loved anything in the Star Wars franchise since 1983. It's been disappointment after disappointment since then, culminating in the worst of all of the films, "The Last Jedi".

    Biggest reason I haven’t bothered with Disney+ is we already have all the movies we want from Disney, Marvel and Lucas on DVD or BluRay. Second I’ve always thought of Boba Fett as the joke of the universe. He got taken out by a blind guy with a stick!! Wuss...

    Agreed. Might as well wait until it becomes available either elsewhere or until the point you want to try Disney. For my family after a couple days the decision was easy. Get Disney+ and cancel Crave. Much better options for the material my family prefers. Prime, I just keep for the free shipping, so the streaming is just a bonus. Netflix is still number 1, but Disney+ looks like at least the first reasonable contender that I've seen assuming they get their glitches in order.

    Re: The TV Mega-Thread: The Truth is Out There

    I did the 7 day trial on Disney+. I think at $7.50/mth (for the annual package), it is a tremendous deal for families with young kids. Myself, I found I didn't watch as much as I thought I would for that first week, so I cancelled before the trial ended. I think having just gone through a recent round of watching all the Marvel movies again may have contributed. It will be interesting to see what sort of reaction the public gives the Marvel based series they plan on launching in 2020.

    I do love how Disney includes a lot of the bonus features with their movies. I love watching that stuff on my blu-rays, so I hope Netflix picks up on that and starts including things like that as well.

    1. **cough** Pirate Bay **cough, cough**
    2. I can't tell you where things will go after the second episode, maybe it will build into a Huge Game of Thrones style let down. But if you aren't watching this because of some loosely related movies, you're missing out. This is what Disney should have been doing from the start after they got the rights to Star Wars: expand and explore the universe, there are a million stories you could tell, whether mystery, action, romance, horror, that doesn't have to have any connection to the Skywalker family.

    Precisely. It's not ironic that the best of the Disney movies happens to be Rogue One which basically had little or no connection to the Skywalkers. I even think Solo was underated and became a product of the behind the scenes issues rather than the movie itself. That same movie if it was about some other obscure character, may have been pretty successful.

    Unfortunately the sequel trilogy is tied too closely to the Skywalker saga which limited its potential appeal.
