Find the Robot, Save Humanity

I recently watched the Foundation series on AppleTv+. Although it’s not a fast-paced, action-packed, sci-fi thriller, I did think it was a great show.

In fact, it is one of my favorite movies of all time. I’ve had the unfortunate luck however, that I’ve bought the movie on DVD four times over the course of several years, and each time, … Continue reading Inconceivable!
