* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Day four of the 13 Days of Doctor Who marathon.

Currently I am absolutely addicted to Outlander. Just started season 3. If I finish it too soon not quite sure how I'm going to survive waiting for season 4.  :o

Finished watching season 3 of "Lucifer" and can't wait for season 4!

Now I'm watching "Broadchurch" and try to get used to David Tennant's accent there.

(And I found season 10 of Doctor Who in the public library, but I have to wait because someone else has it and there's a cue of people who want it.)

The live worldwide simulcast of the season premiere of DOCTOR WHO, with the first-ever woman Doctor
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

I've watched the first 3 episodes of American Gods, on screen it looks so much more freaky than in the book...not sure I'll finish watching the first season...depends on how much more gross some scenes get, but the acting is good.

I've tried the first two episodes of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix yesterday. I'm trying to remember the comedy version I watched as a teenager and I'm wondering if that one was better. I'm not convinced of the Netflix version yet, but I'll watch more episodes to give it a chance. I miss the comedy from the older version and I don't like the horror elements in the newer version that much. Some are cool, but the devil is basicly just an oversized goat, he's neither scary nor funny, so wtf?

Has anyone else watched those?

I'm nearly through with the second episode. Just for comparison last week I went back and watched some of the old Sabrina, and the difference is striking. The new one is very dark, heavy with the Satanism, while the old one was much more family-friendly and lighthearted. I'll watch a few more episodes, but I'm not sure about it yet.

I haven't read through the whole thread, so forgive me if I missed it.... did anyone watch the new Haunting of Hill House on Netflix? I liked it except for the last episode.

I watched episodes 3-5 yesterday evening. The storyline has enough suspence to be entertaining, but the Satanism stuff is really annoying. It's just too simple good witch vs. evil satanic church. And Sabrina as a character is just too perfect, she doesn't have any own character flaws, her problem is those satanic witches & priests conspiring against her and the patriarchy at school (and her friends not knowing that she's a witch). It's just too shallow. It's basicly a story for 12-year-olds dyed in colors too dark for 12-year-olds to watch.

That said it's still entertaining enough to watch, but it's such a shame they overlooked all that potential the series has, could have been a great story if they had made some things more ambivalent.

The trailers right before the Freddy Mercury biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY starts.

I've been digitizing family videos for a Greek neighbor the last two days, so I just had to sit down and relax by watching...

Song of the South...for the first time since the early 1970s.

As part of my video hobbyist setup, I have a LaserDisc player, and I found an original Disney Japanese LD release copy on eBay.

I have been binge watching "Game Of Thrones" on DVD at home at night. It has been helping me get through the bad weather we have been having.

I also watch the news and political shows like "Meet The Press". I watched some football last night as well.

I do need to read more though. I do not want to spend all of my time watching screens. I have been working on a history book that I might post elsewhere on a relevant thread.
