Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/11/20 — 5/17/20


This week, I finished binging The Sopranos and then, as the result of an ill-advised twitter poll, I followed that up by watching all 6 seasons of the HBO prison drama, Oz.  To be honest, Oz wasn’t really for me but twitter polls are legally binding so I was obligated to watch the whole series.  I’ve now started in on Deadwood, which I should be able to knock out in about 3 days.

As far as our quarantine is going, we are currently in the process of reopening down here in Texas.  Myself, I’m still working at home at least through June.

Anyway, here’s what I watched and read and listened to this week!
