I just finished season 1 of #Atypical on #Netflix #TV. It's a complete 180 from Ozark which I watched just prior to that, and which I've just giddily learned has been renewed for a second season!!

Watching someone do an 18 minute speedrun of Rogue Legacy is a pretty fun way to "play" the game without having to play it.
