  • I'm going to watch this one again when it comes to on demand. it may reveal more with multiple viewings.
  • I just watched The Post at a surprisingly crowded theater on a Saturday afternoon. Sadly, I'm not nearly as impressed as the BM gang seems to be.  Last year, I watched Ken Burns' Vietnam War documentary, which really painted a clear picture of an e…
  • Having watched parts 1 & 2 after recently listening to "The Problem We All Live With" from This American Life, I was into this miniseries from the start. I appreciate the way David Simon illustrates our struggle with race, and this show will not…
  • End of episode 8 GIF stolen from dude who posted on Omega Station. thanks! you're welc. what's surprising to me about this show is how little I want to speculate about what is going to happen next. i'm not even trying to understand what has already…
  • I won't be watching season 3 unless the reviews are really good. It seems like this is what Nick P was aiming for: but this is what we got:
  • dat last scene tho. that was some masterful exposition.
  • I'm having similar problems on desktop Chrome with or without the http and www prefixes. I cleared cache and cookies, and it works fine on my phone (Chrome). Safari does load the page without 'www'. The webpage at http://baldmove.com/ has resulted i…
  • that scene with all of the cops in the airplane hanger(?) talking about the case was amazingly stilted/off. not sure what to make of each cop's behavior in that scene. it was very strange. gonna rewatch tonight with special attention given to that o…
  • I'm under the impression that the crow mask came from Casper's porn(?) house. It wouldn't be True Detective without some fucked up rituals and beliefs, so I don't see it as purely functional. I'm wondering what to read into the fact that the camera …
  • While the credits were rolling I was wondering why bother wearing a mask if you are just going to kill somebody? My first two thoughts: a) blood splatter & b) what if your target escapes? From Hannibal: I think the question raised by this last …
  • ...I'm still unsure what to think of a company being named Evil Corp. It seems like an amalgamation of Enron, Koch, Apple, and surely some other companies, but Evil Corp? really?. Don't forget Dell Even as a former Texan, I'm not surprised that I f…
  • I have struggled to enjoy the IFC show. I watched most of the first season as it aired, a little bit of season 2, then fewer episodes of this season. The episode that really blew it for me was the one about his ex doing the podcast. The scene where …
  • fsociety strikes again
  • +1 for this show. just watched the first episode. I think refreshing is exactly right. at first I was doubtful about another show portraying hackers, but this one seems about right. between the tortured genius, (house MD), the Rust Cole philosophy o…
  • Did anyone else get some real Lolz this week? Don closing, then opening the conf room curtains, Ken toying with Pete, the Campbell family feud sucker punch. It was all great, and I'm sure there were more comedic bits I'm forgetting. The strongest …
  • did betty just throw away chekhov's gun?
  • episode 2 aka Game of Thrones Comedy Hour. this was an interesting change of tone for GOT. 
  • it's probably a good thing that the store doesn't carry the strawberry milkshake pop tarts. goddamn dangerous.
  • I wasn't turned on to Mad Men, Breaking Bad, or most other shows because of the teasers. It was the public radio & podcast interviews that piqued my interest. The True Detective teaser does a good job of showing that it will still be a well-prod…
  • Haha, this is why we don't cover the show. Wow, what do you even say about that? i'm time shifted a little. surely more will start pouring in eventually. If Mad Men is about a charismatic guy who always knows what to say, Louie is about a very non-…
  • what the hell is that first potluck he stumbled into?
