    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    It doesn't bother me nearly as much as I initially feared it would. The "unreliable narrator" is another aspect I am appreciating a bit more as the season progresses.

    Watched, Watching & Rewatch Redux

    I finally saw Sicario: Day of the Soldado. Fairly average film with a good scene or two and a terrible ending.

    Cartoons you'd like to see remade?

    In these troubling times we need a reboot of Captain Planet and the Planeteers.

    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    Or a bard. But he is definitely the type to cheat on his ability rolls

    Counterpart Starz Series (SPOILERS)

    That was an excellent origin story. While the reveal of the split itself was a bit anti-climactic, witnessing the divergence between the two sides and resulting events(especially the virus) was just what I was hoping for. Loved Yannick's backstory and the origins of Management. The Butterfly Effect with the cassette for Mira was handled so well. The symbolism of the rats eating their own was so spot on.

    I thought about that as well. Even the possibility of dissociation and multiple personalities. Either stemming from the case, but more likely from his time in Vietnam. Hays only seems truly in control and comfortable or balanced when he is "hunting". He seems slightly uncomfortable in all other situations, like someone who is struggling to contain himself or act normal. At least that is how it seems to me.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    Waiting to discover what happened between Hays and Roland and the police force. I enjoyed the tension of their 1990 reunion scene at the bar. How did Roland get shot? Roland's comment about Hays's big mouth was spot on with some things Hays said this episode: his conversation with Amelia after she returned from her dinner with the cops and his comment to her about the war protests ending once the draft ended. I feel for Woodard and was hoping he would get in a few more shots, but then didn't feel as bad after the scene where he seemed to be hiding his bag. What was in the bag in Woodard's garage? It was shaped oddly like a body. Looks like Elisa is trying to get a reaction out of Hays for her documentary. I'm thinking the mom knows something. She seemed to know exactly which photo Hays was interested in in that album. So D&D, dolls, a secret friend, a secret meeting place, a mysterious expensive brown sedan? What else?

    They'll go full season 1 and Roland will have had an affair with Amelia and is the real father of Becca.

    Sure, but what if? We would've been spared SLJ and his lame purple lightsaber. Possibly. He was great as Cottonmouth. Then again, Anakin thought the Jedis were villains.

    He would have been a much better Mace Windu than Samuel L. Jackson. I'm wondering what exactly happened in her past when she was in the Anti-War movement during the Vietnam War.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    I'm wondering if his wife's book will be a key to solving or uncovering the mystery of this season's crime. Some detail to jog his memory?
  12. My guess was he was born with a cleft palate after the midwife said he couldn't suckle.
  13. Ragnar! Yes! Thx for reminding us what a good show this once was. But Lagertha's dream fugue and recent plotline makes no fucking sense and her convo with Judith was one of the worst I've heard on this series. Regarding Judith, she really just told a foreign frenemy she killed her son? I suppose. She told her son the king last episode. Hopeful she won't be in the show much longer. I've been waiting for her to disappear from the show. Maybe like Lagertha's disappearance but nobody notices or cares that she's gone. Mic drop, Floki! Kjetill has no idea who is talking to. The Iceland arc is one of the better ones this season. Slow, but I find it interesting. Doesn't hurt to have one of the best characters in the series and the beautiful natural scenery of Iceland. Ubbe's scenes were good, except for Torvi also being in them. I was waiting for the Danes to break into "Hooked on a Feeling" after they were chanting his name. Ivar's scenes weren't terrible and it was actually nice to see some humanity still left in him even after he bbq'd the opposition. Not sure about Hvitserk's scenes. So did he find enlightenment with Olaf/Buddha? So now Bjorn marries Gunnhild and Harald is sulking over another girl. Always a bridesmaid never a bride, right Harald? Kudos to Bjorn for fucking with him, though.

    Yeah the search function was having issues earlier when I was looking for it.

    I swear there was a forum thread for s1 of Big Little Lies. I remember posting in it weekly.
