Last night at 2 AM I began watching The Ballad of Buster Scruggs on this new streaming service “Netflix”. Did y’all know that you can watch TV shows and movies on your computer, Xbox, or phone now? I give Netflix 5 stars! (Netflix sponsor the Pode.) Without further ado, here is the Not-Netflix-Sponsored-(yet) Anthology Recap … Continue reading Seahawks Recap: Bobby Wagner and Doug Baldwin are very good, it’s true
