  • Back in business!

    Just finished the new episode and I can’t explain how happy it made me to have this back in my feed. Liking the level of engagement from J&A and I’m reminded that, if not anything else, TWD can be a good springboard for interesting and lighthearted conversation about society. Also, not sure if this was intentional, but Jim’s deadpan outline of the episode is fantastic, really cracked me up a couple of times.

    Happy to have the Watching Dead back!

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things (Spoilers)

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things is a very unsettling read. Personally found it pretty great, though I could see opinions differing, particularly on the ending. No spoilers, but it's going to be interesting how Kaufman interprets this for a visual medium. The story and the prose have a disconcerting subtlety that leaves just the right amount to the imagination. I could see it being one of those stories that works better in your mind's eye, but if any director can get the best out of it it's Kaufman, so I'm here to see how it turns out.

    Maybe one for the Bald Move Spooktacular, depending of course on how it turns out!

    Wow. Just watched this. No spoilers ahead...

    This is a tough adaptation, but Kaufman did a fantastic job. I’m going to be really interested in what people think of this without the context of knowing where it’s going. But if you do, it’s very rewarding to see how Kaufman took such a sparsely descriptive novel (which is in fact one of its strengths) and used his own mastery of visual storytelling to such great effect. 

    This is going to generate a great podcast discussion, I imagine!
