  • Mindhunter season 2

    Yeah, his obliviousness to the situation was evident, and I've read that the grainy footage was to make the audience consider it as an actual historical event or whatever, but it wasn't clear to me what the optics and social implications were supposed to be.  Was it super-awkward and inappropriate because he was making that moment all about himself and his dumb plan, or was it awkward because he looked like a klan member running around with that cross, lol?  The reactions he got from everyone around him made that ambiguous to me.
    I think we as an audience were supposed to feel both, but I suspect a lone Klan member would not have made it very far in that crowd.  Someone more normal than Ford might have looked at the solemn marchers and decided to take the cross a different route, walk it along the periphery of the march instead of running through the crowd, or have asked the crowd to help him get the cross to where it needed to go so it became part of the event instead of a disruption.

    Perhaps the writers feel each season they need to have Ford demonstrate a certain number of times that he's out of touch in dramatic fashion.

  • Mindhunter season 2

    I was happy they seemed to make everyone else primary this season. Ford is almost my least favorite character.  In terms of BTK it's wild they introduced him at the end of season one and it made me feel like season two would be all BTK. But he's still out there at the end and most of the time was spent elsewhere.
    Ford just seems like a generic, poorly-adjusted whiz kid compared to Tench, who always seems THIS CLOSE to collapse or going on his own rampage.

    The show is planned for three more seasons; covering BTK may involve some changes in the show's format.

  • Jessica Jones Season 3

    While not as good as season one, it was much improved over season two. 

    Season three is interesting for having a bunch of threats/grey characters instead of one big bad.  After Captain Marvel, the main bad _guy_ here seems kind of a familiar type the entertainment industry is using against female heroes, the emotionally manipulative guy who wants to keep the heroine down by convincing her that her powers aren't "fair".

    But the real reason to watch season three is Trish's journey now that she has powers.  There's a fun training montage near the beginning; I won't spoil the rest of her arc but superhero fans should find a lot to like in her development over the season as she struggles with some of the core issues of being a crime fighter.

    Unlike most Netflix Marvel shows I thought they did a good job with pacing for once, though this season had a number of plots and some of them were less compelling than others.

    Sorry if someone else said it, but as far as Euron knows, Tyrion could have found out about Cersei's pregnancy from Qyburn.


    What I want to see in Episode 5:

    Arya and the Hound spend most of the episode trying to find good roast chicken.

    Tyrion smuggles Drogon into the Red Keep through the sewers.
