  • Anyone watching Utopia on Prime? (No Spoilers)

    I found this show intriguing and engaging, but I have a number of complaints.  As mentioned above, there are a lot of tonal shifts that I find off-putting.  Breaking Bad did a great job of injecting bits of humor to break up tension, but Utopia doesn't seem to know if it is an over the top action comedy, or a gritty/dark reflection of a bleak society.

    I would say that overall I liked it, but I think they could have done a little better at just thinking through some of the scenes to determine if they make sense.  For example, having one guy running a bunch of twitter bots makes way more sense than having an ultra hip office full of Gen Z-ers just waiting to take be unleashed on twitter.  Also, pretty much everything about the warehouse scene. The more I think about this the more scenes that just don't make sense.

  • His Dark Materials - Season 2

    I just listened to this over lunch.  I'm thrilled it's back, I think I enjoy the podcast a little more than the show.
