  • Officially Official TWD Plan Going Forward

    If Gimple and the new showrunners don't, by some miracle, completely screw up FTWD and it continues to be good, I hope they consider covering it.

  • Need a specific recommendation

    There are a lot of British shows you can try (in addition to the British Happy Valley):

    Prime Suspect 1973 (also known as Prime Suspect: Tennison)
    Babylon
    Prime Suspect (Hellen Mirren)
    Unforgotten
    Ashes to Ashes (from Wikipedia: The series tells the story of Alex Drake (played by Keeley Hawes), a police officer in service with the London Metropolitan Police, who is shot in 2008 by a man called Arthur Layton and inexplicably regains consciousness in 1981.)

  • Black Mirror Season 4 SPOILERS!

    It feels like the breakout success of San Junipero last year caused Brooker to significantly change the kind of stories he writes.  Leaving aside Metalhead which was generic post apocalypse stuff, while stories this season could go very dark places, most episodes had "good" triumph.  I don't remember that being the case in the UK seasons; I recall them usually ending on much bleaker notes. 

    Brooker has a distinctive authorial voice; it would be a shame if he ends up writing safer material like this all the time.

    It felt like there was too much emphasis on one general technology (reading thoughts and uploading/transferring minds) this season.

  • First half of Season 8 wrap up cast

    [...] does anyone ACTUALLY believe that's what they are doing?
    No but the whole "wearing zombie guts can make you sick" was a surprise too.

  • Apple iPhone X

    The X is nice, but not mortgage payment nice.  Will stick with my 7 Plus for another year.  Would prefer a Plus-sized version in any event to better match my XL hands.
