    Please let Dolores have put Teddy's Marble into Hale, at least for an episode or two.

    Elsie died like she lived: wearing a black unitard.

    How about all the cold rolled references set to a gangsta rap beat?

    I'm not a lawyer, but if she releases what evidence she has, and this thing later becomes litigious, then that "evidence" would probably be inadmissible, I think.
    No, should still be admissible.  There would be a concern that the other side would have seen the evidence earlier than they would have otherwise and had more time to prepare a rebuttal of it.

    I'd like to see us as a society/culture move toward some sort of process or procedure for evaluating these kinds of accounts that reflects our values, not the current situation where someone can destroy someone else's life with an accusation.  Because if it stays at that level, these accounts that aren't cut and dried will all end up in court.  Should dating involve showing proof of lack of mental health issues along with lack of STDs?  Does staying with someone after questionable actions imply consent WRT their actions?  After all, there is a spectrum of activities and norms consenting adults engage in.  And if you believe in equality then there is equal agency and perhaps responsibility.  What does "no means no" mean if you don't say "no"?  There have certainly been repulsive and horrifying accounts, but there have also been "I didn't say anything at the time, but now I'm unhappy with his and my actions back then, so he should lose everything" accounts that seem unreasonable.

    I wanted the robots to establish a virtual world for themselves in this story. Oh boy, never mind once I saw Ake's mate in the simulation lol. Too much head scratching to bother, really.
    The Sublime is a magical world where the hosts can make anything happen, including conjuring lost loved ones.  At least that's what I tell myself.  A magical world magically transmitted to a magical set of coordinates Delores might have found in a magical book.  Gag. 

    I just rewatched s1 and, while I appreciate the depth s2 added to it, s1 seems far superior as entertainment.  Given the s2 scene with Stubbs and Halores was rewritten the night before, I don't have a lot of confidence s2 was a finely crafted puzzle box.  Maybe not a junk drawer, but less than the sum of its parts.

    BBC Global News Podcast; can't recommend it enough.

    I didn't care for DD season 1 and 2 for various reasons, but this season impressed me.  They turned down the gore and did a good job in a number of areas.  Fisk was shown to be a dangerous villain, Dex made a good secondary bad guy, there were a number of well-staged fights, some good twists, the pacing felt pretty good and in general the show felt more like a comic book brought to life than other Netflix/Marvel productions.

    On the bad side, the whole Fisk/Vanessa mess feels like a love story written by an 11-yo and I was ready for the season to end around episode 10.  Maybe they need to start having additional story arcs or crossovers or something if they have to stick to 13 episodes for syndication reasons.

    The podcast speaks of Dr. Ford as a good guy. Does anyone else not see him that way at all?
    Well, duh, he's a white male.

    Season 4 is legions of Dr. Ford-controlled hosts taking over the world while Elsie, Bernard, and Maeve secretly capture and convert hosts to fight back.
