Entertaining Television: Grantchester

While Bemoaning the loss of a few television series that are coming to an end a friend of mine suggested I give Grantchester a look.

The premise was promising though to be sure the concept isn't entirely original. Pairing a detective with a non-detective is common but there is enough originality to keep it interesting.

Keurig 2.0 update - 1.0 K-Cups with the Freedom Clip

One of the largest complaints I had in my review of the Keurig 2.0 K550 Brewer was the fact that I had to give away a lot of coffee because it wouldn't work in the new brewer.
As I had stated in my review Keurig tried to hide the fact that you had to use official K-Cups in the 2.0 brewer by making a big deal about the brewer being able to scan the cups you put in to automatically brew the perfect cup. Not only doesn't this actually work at all (please see the Review for more information) but only amounts to trying to control the market for K-Cups by ensuring the brewers will only brew K-Cups from companies that have licensed the technology from them.

The Hobbit Trilogy: Tolkien? or not?

With the release of The Battle of the Five Armies The Peter Jackson Directed Trilogy of Hobbit movies has been completed. With that completion comes the questions, second guessing, and complaining that one would expect from such an undertaking.
