I've been so excited for this show to start up again!
I admit, this episode left me very confused - I figured they're showing us at least two timelines, but beyond that ... the episode ended, and I was like 'umm ... wtf is going on?' But in a good way! I'm super excited to see the rest of the season, and see where this story is going!
Things that make you go hmmm ...
45's personal lawyer (Michael Cohen) just so happened to be working out of the Squire, Patton, and Boggs law offices, who are lawyers for Cambridge Analyitica, *and* are main lobbyists for Russia's Gazprom oil company!
PS - a little more that I just learned about this law firm: Squire Patton Boggs formed four years ago from the merger of Squire, Sanders and Dempsey (a law firm) with Patton Boggs (a lobbying and law firm that at that point was mired in scandal). Patton Boggs was set to collapse due to a corruption scandal having to do with a case in Ecuador. The firm was targeted as a co-conspirator in RICO violations including coercion, falsified data, and intimidation of judges. Patton Boggs was only saved by the merger with Squire Sanders.
We rented Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri this weekend.
It was fantastic, and Frances McDermott was amazing in it. I didn't know Clarke Peters was also in it, so that was a pleasant surprise. And of course I'm always thrilled to see Peter Dinklage in anything, so yay for that too!
We also rented Downsizing, which ... I guess I thought the movie had a cool concept, but I ended up falling asleep about 2/3 into it, so I guess that speaks to what I thought of it. It didn't help that we watched that one after Three Billboards, and so the bar had been set pretty high, and Downsizing, while not terrible or anything ... I don't think it's anywhere near the caliber of Three Billboards, so couldn't compete.
