  • @DaveyMac Unfortunately, someone on the Facebook post for the podcast told them about Loki
  • @akritenbrink I'm glad you shared the situation of a public pool in Seattle having a women's only time.  As a I read through this thread the only other pertinent example of a women's only space I could think of, is a local chain(I live in the Tampa …
  • @hypergenesb I'm in your camp.  There's been very little dramatic tension this season, which is very surprising for this show. In past seasons, all the characters seemed to be walking a razor's edge.  The only time I can think of Phillip or Elizabet…
  • Has anyone noticed the difference in camera shots.  It caught my attention during the flashback scene between Offred and Luke when they are flirting.  The camera is never still while maintaining a medium closeup vs the scenes from the present that a…
  • To go old school, Chuck's meltdown on the stand was very close to Captain Queeg's testimony in the Caine Mutiny.  Except that Chuck was right about Jimmy and Queeg was simply paranoid about the strawberryies.  Either way, both brought down by unhing…
  • I saw a still photo of McShane and his right eye is brighter/milky looking.  He also makes the comment, "one good eye, anyway."  Is that part of his character in the books? Yes
  • One other thought, for those with no prior knowledge of the material, I can't imagine how this episode would hit you.
  • One adaptation issue that stood out to me, dealt with Mad Sweeney and the gold coins.  In both, Mad Sweeney is pulling random gold coins out of the air.  But, IIRC in the book, he made a special show of producing Laura's coin.  If they did it in the…
  • I have accepted the name of "Lazy-assed Professional". Damn, that's pretty on the nose.
  • After Nora had her problems with touchscreen and the parking gate, I thought it was related to her problem with the electronic door sensor at the convenience store.  I then remembered that the door sensor happened to her character in Fargo last week…
  • Slightly more than a stakeout from what I recall.  Thought that Stan's partner wanted to date Martha and maybe they went out on 1 date or so or they use to date but she clearly wasn't interested and I thought the way it went down was that Stan's par…
  • Why did Stan shoot that kid? I can't remember now. It was in retaliation for the killing of his partner.  If I remember correctly, Stan's partner was staking out Martha and crossed paths with Phillip.  Phillip killed him.  Stan and the FBI blamed th…
  • @ghm3 The Theatrical version is the only version I've seen. I was in a hurry when I got the link.
  • 2 From Donnie Darko Donnie Darko - Mad World ( Lyrics )Head Over Heels - Donnie Darko Scene
  • LA Confidential is in my Top 5 & this is my favorite music sequence in it, even though I had no previous connection with this song or music from this era. L.A. Confidential - Wheel of Fortune (1997)
  • @amyja89  I usually watch British shows with subtitles on, so I'm not even sure how much I'm listening vs reading.  I will say that I enjoyed the slang in the Inspector Gently series set in the Newcastle area.  I'm not sure how much of the …
  • @aberry89 Regarding Last Tango, it's a family drama rather than a crime/family drama like Happy Valley.  My wife & I enjoyed it as a wind down show at the end of the evening.
  • @Dani_Armindo Another British show that I enjoyed, that shares a lead with Happy Valley. Last Tango In Halifax
  • In the big fight scene between Jack & Rebecca, when they were yelling at each other I was not able to follow what they actually said.  Both characters referenced what was said the next morning as crossing a threshold.  I know there are issues wi…
  • Glad to hear that there is a third season.  Unlike @aberry89 , I don't have ways, so I assume I'll be waiting a year for it show up on Netflix. @amyja89 I enjoy Happy Valley a lot as well.  Compared to Broadchurch, I'm not sure which I prefer.  Hap…
  • Question for all....After Perry puts his hands on Celeste and the kids interrupt, we see Perry in an agitated state.  Do you all think he was upset with himself for losing his shit again or angry that he was not able to finish the abuse that he star…
  • I had a heart stopping moment when Adam Scott was looking out the door at his stepdaughter - I'm so glad that didn't go where I was momentarily afraid it was going. I am loving Reese so much in this - her character is fantastic. I can take or leav…
  • @ghm3 @aberry89 I rewatched the "We Were Soldiers" review and I agree it comes off bad.  The scenes that he criticized were more about movie making than credibility.  He called a death scene of two soldiers cliched without remarking on their accur…
  • Absolutely right on. The narrator does a great job of contextualizing criticism of the where it is appropriate.
