    Logan Marshall Green was good in Damnation as well. Too bad it was cancelled after one season, just like Quarry.

    I'm usually not a fan of detour, stand-alone episodes, but this was one of my fav episodes of the season. (Maybe that says more about my opinion of this season than the episode itself.) It's interesting to see how various hosts react to their "awakenings". I wonder how many petri dishes Ford is observing during his little experiment in the park. I appreciated how Kohana represented the figure at the center of the maze for Ake.

    The minotaur battle seemed to be completely brushed aside this episode other than the throw-away taste line by Kerri. I have to agree here. It can be frustrating at times, especially when the viewer thinks an event or convo is important in one episode, only to be forgotten or glossed over the next.

    June '18 Reading - Something something witty.

    Frank Bill's The Savage. A loose sequel to his Donnybrook. A post-economic collapse, militia-run dystopia set in Southern Indiana with several of the characters from Donnybrook returning. While Donnybrook was an adrenaline and amphetamine-fueled ride through rural Indiana, The Savage was a step down. A bit serious at times with commentary on the current state of affairs: economically, socially, and politically. It had glimpses and flashes of what I really enjoyed in Donnybrook, but felt like two different books.

    If you have Marcus Theatres in your area (IL, IA, MO, MN, NE, ND, OH WI), they offer $5 Tuesdays, all day long.

    Good finale. I dug the mind battle between David and SK and the not-entirely-unexpected twist of role-reversals and David being, or at least being perceived as, the villain. Him dropping "the blonde" was great. Loved how they made Syd the delusion of the season for David. Hopefully we get to see "evil" David next season in all his glory. However, as much as I love Oliver, his scene with Melanie felt completely unnecessary. Basically an artistic filler. I have to agree with Rhom concerning the disbelief of D3 allowing SK free. Unless he orchestrated it all. Wasn't paying close enough attention to the mouse scenes.

    Welcome to the club and enjoy the ride. The Leftovers is a wonderful series. And it ended on a high not, they actually stuck the landing. Another great series. I'm about due for a rewatch during the summer tv drought.

    What Artists Do You Truly Regret Never Getting To See?

    Someone here has taste! Not big on concerts(small intimate performances are another story), and can't regret not seeing an artist before my time, but two artists I can regret not seeing are Michael Jackson and Prince.
  10. Her little arc aboard the Nauvoo seemed rushed and pointless to me,(haven't read past Caliban's War so no idea how the book treats it) but I suppose they needed her skill set away from the Roci while Batteries Not Included sabotaged the ship. I'm happy she's returning home. I didn't think it was possible to like Amos more than I already did. I was rather ambivalent about Melba and her arc until this episode revealed she was a Mao.

    That's what storage units are for. Kind of an inner child man cave. Throw some of those glow-in-the-dark stars all over the walls and ceiling and geek out.

    Katherine LaNasa is gorgeous! Loved her as Lizzie Ambrose in Longmire as well. Speaking of which, I feel Justified and Longmire both evolved into a great blend of the episodic procedural and overarching storyline we are more familiar with in television now. It also doesn't hurt having Elmore Leonard contributing.

    The plot armor is obvious. I was anticipating William's daughter saving him there.

    I'm pleased the SK finally got his body back. Just when I was fearing he was going to jump to Melanie as his vessel after Oliver for the potential third season. This show has some of the best visuals: Kerri jumping down the hole/drain, the running around the maze, the screens in the underground looking like petri dishes. Enough happened this episode to keep the plot moving, while at times seeming oddly stagnant due to the Melanie/SYD and David/Oliver convos. I hope Oliver isn't a goner. Possibly my fav character(tied with Aubrey Plaza's Lenny) due to Jemaine Clement. I loved him in Gentleman Broncos.

    Action-packed, but the Dolores/Maeve convo was the best part of the episode. Agree with the sentiment that the multiple timelines are tiring. I'm looking forward to Zahn McClarnon's episode next week.
