Media Diet – June 2023

This month there was a good variety of media. I started off the month with reading Laura Kate Dale’s book Who Hunts The Whale which is a satirical novel about the video games industry. It was quite effective at making me both laugh and cry.

I am also watching a dystopian sci-fi TV show called Silo. It took a few episodes for the show to really get going but when it eventually did, it got very interesting.

I watched another movie in the theatre, this time it was Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse. Quite possibly the best animated movie I’ve ever seen. It was a delightful experience from start to finish. Worth watching in a movie theatre if you can.

I watched an anime series, the first season of The Witch from Mercury. This show is a show set in a wholly new Mobile Suite Gundam universe disconnected from the rest of the franchise. It was a enjoyable watch even if in typical Gundam fashion it is a little heavy handed with its messaging in some places. It’s always cool to see mechs fight.

At the end of the month, I watched the first season of Star Trek Strange New Worlds. I see why people have been singing the praises of this show and I also enjoyed it. Between Strange New Worlds and Lower Decks there is a good variety of Trek TV out right now.

That’s all from me this month, see y’all next month!
