Veronica Mars: Season 04 (2019) Review #BurntMarshmallows

What's the verdict on the 2019 Veronica Mars "reboot"? Marshmallows (the show's diehard fans) aren't happy, in fact they feel burnt. More proof that rehashes and reboots seldom fare well.

My Veronica Mars (2019) Review


All seasons of Veronica Mars are available to stream on Hulu or alternatively, one can download-to-own certain seasons and/or individual episodes of the show via various non-subscription based webstores like iTunes, Amazon Prime Video or Google Play.

It (2017) UHD Digital Copy $4.99 on Sale at Vudu! [Stephen King] #Horror

This weekend you can grab a UHD Digital Copy of the movie It (2017) based upon the same-titled Stephen King book for only $4.99 at Vudu.

NOTE: I haven't seen this flick myself. I was wary of how well the novel would be translated into film and so didn't see it in theaters, but I've recently heard this movie is a fairly accurate representation of the book, plus it's UHD. The novel It was the first Stephen King book that I ever read. My aunt happened to be reading the book when I came to visit her and I inquired about it, so she gave me her copy when she finished. Scared the bejesus out of me as a teen. But I was hooked on Stephen King afterward.

This deal is a part of the Vudu $4.99 Killer Weekend Deals (Horror Movies Sale). While I generally try to stick to promoting free stuff on this blog, when a great low-cost deal like this pops up, I'm definitely going to mention it. I purchased the movie. Luckily for me, I had a $5.00 account credit from the aforementioned "Movies On US" promotion which Vudu ran last month, so it was a freebie for me. Anyhow, get your own UHD digital copy:

Free Episodes - Google Play #DownloadToOwn #FamilyLibrary

The Google Play Store regularly gives away free episodes of various television series and occasionally a made-for-television movie or simultaneous release theatrical movie, etc. The selection changes depending on what is currently being promoted. Sometimes you can score the pilot episode of a new series before it airs on broadcast TV or get more than one episode of a series for free. As these are free "purchases" --- make certain the price on the checkout popup is $0.00 (or Free) --- episodes go into your cloud library at Google Play and can either be streamed or downloaded for offline viewing. A Google account is required for purchasing (free to register, may require a CC on file).

Tip: Use the free episodes as a noncommittal way to check out series in order to see if one should invest any more time in watching.
