No upgrade is imminent, but curiosity calls… Current OLEDs from Sony and LG all use the same panel made by LG. That panel is the same panel used in all models (at least in the LG lineup of B, C, G, E, and W). So the most basic and the most decked out LG OLED […]

Well, there went a planned outing to the cabins at Bellows due to the hook and slice of Hurricanes Madeline and Lester. With Bellows cancelling stays starting from Saturday, we now had lots of free time over the Labor Day weekend. That time was spent watching (and finishing) the inaugural season of Stranger Things. This […]
The absolute biggest loser of Season 1 of Stranger Things has to be Barb, Nancy’s best friend. Luckily Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show captures all of Barb’s sentiments.
So after ten episodes of the Shannara Chronicles, is it all done? Is this storyline/saga over and will there be follow-on shows? I admit this series has been fun with solid costumes and effects although some of the big bads didn’t seem that bad. There are still questions to be answered, and not having read […]
As an Asian, I gotta give props to promoting the new television show, Fresh Off the Boat. Although I don’t think this form of advertising is permitted in Hawaii. Perchance a FOB is unaware and is responsible for this?
While waiting for a car battery replacement, I had the luxury of watching Family Feud. What happened to this show??? Granted I really haven’t watched the show since the days of Richard Dawson and Ray Combs, but the questions and format had always been predictable. Today with Steve Harvey at the helm, the questions and […]
No really, and there’s at least six of them hanging around the club. Oh wait, Perverts 1-6 are only extras for the filming of Hawaii Five-0 at Club 939. But you gotta wait for episode 4 of season 5 to catch pervert 6 at 939.
With my Tivo HD unit (circa 2008) showing the “black screen of death” more and more often, it was time to act and get a new Roamio. While the name is a little peculiar, this device is no joke. The strength of the Roamio is the remote viewing of recorded content included on the Plus […]
I try not to watch television commercials while using my Tivo. But this recent commercial from American Savings Bank caught my eye (for the wrong reasons). Ummm, no, ASB Hawaii. Just no.
Darn you Dancing with the Stars!! After staying away for the last season, I made the mistake of taking a peek at Season 17. One unbelievable dance lead to another, and now I’m hooked once again. Week 1 was indescribable. Each performance got better and better. I was waiting for the first to fall or […]
There it was flying overhead, none other than TC’s infamous helicopter from the past hit Hawaiian television series Magnum P.I. Yes, the distinctively patterned helo, aka “The Chopper” is “back” in Hawaii, doing tours for Paradise Helicopters. As a fitting tribute, this restored helicopter is even signed by Magnum’s Roger E. Mosley (TC) and Larry […]
My pops wanted better sound to match his HDTV broadcasts from Oceanic Cable. But when The Wire Cutter says no to home theaters in a box and endorses Sony’s HT-CT260 sound bar then you heed their researched advice. Unfortunately, the CT260 was out of stock at Amazon.com. Fortunately, Best Buys in Hawaii just received their […]
