    I really liked Metalhead.  Loved the dog design, they reminded me of the OG Terminator or the ED-209 in Robocop, really cool stuff, and very terrifying how they "casually" go about hunting down and killing people. Interesting how short the epsideo was, thought they did a great job with telling a tight story. I get that some people didn't like the teddy bear "reveal" at the end but to me it wasn't nearly enough of a flaw (if it was a flaw) to outweigh the strength of the episode.
    It was up there with the best of the season for me. Ever since the show moved to Netflix they seem to have a hard time figuring the right length of an episode. Mostly they are too long and could use a bit of a stronger editing hand. This one was so tightly edited and had such little in the way of an actual story helped in just jumping straight into things. I also love that you can create your own story about how everything ended up that way.

    I read an interview with Charles Booker who said he originally had a guy controlling the Dog, but it was cut because it was more powerful to not know how or why these things are doing all of this. Its such a frightening creation and it moves in an absolutely skin-crawling way. Thinking that they are sentient is the stuff of nightmares.

    Personal Shopper. My girl Kristen hitting it out of the park once again! I didn't expect to be genuinely scared by this movie!
    Oh thats on my to-watch list! I hear it is fantastic. 

    As for my addition: I caught Split last night. I really can't say a thing without spoiling it for someone out there. All I will say is that fans of M. Night Shyamalan's earlier works will find a ton to love here. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It certainly has some flaws. But it leaves on a real stinger that made my jaw drop. 
  • Guilty Pleasures

    I used to really like watching Biggest Loser while also eating the biggest pizza I could find. 
  • Guilty Pleasures

    Definitely Gordon Ramsay stuff (Kitchen Nightmares, Hotel Hell, Hell's Kitchen, Master Chef, etc), Bar Rescue...I am noticing a trend...really loud men yelling at people about how they aren't doing things right. 
    Well since Jim hasn’t done cocktail recipes in a long time I sometimes try the ones on Bar Rescue. When it aired and Adam was the host I was really into Man vs Food. 
    Oh man, me too! I haven't really watched it since the revamp came out with the new host. I immediately didn't like him though. Call it judging a book by its cover, but I just wasn't a fan.

  • Wolf Among Us

    As someone who has played Back to the Future and Jurassic Park, they lean much less heavily into the "choose your own response"-type game. They are closer to the old Sierra point-and-click adventure games. I think other of Telltale's games would be a better fit. Borderlands is fantastic and hilarious. Even if you aren't a Borderlands fan in the slightest. Bad-Guy Batman would be a blast to watch you guys do.
