    Thanks @The Moog !! I'm sure these will keep me going until I either lose interest, become disgusted, or realise that these guys were right all along...

    In a similar yet different fashion I was more frustrated about the plot line regarding Tench’s son. Just seemed completely unnecessary IMO. However I’m starting to realise that each character’s personal life probably shares similarities with the serial killers they are interviewing - for if a person was a composite of the 3 main characters they’d be a killer themselves. That is to say: Ford being overly organised and obsessive, Wendy a repressed homosexual and Tench and his son representing an absent Father/issues with family life at home.

    Dave's special was fucking great. Seeing his brand of comedy in this day and age is like seeing a grand anachronism.

    Pulled this snippet of a quote over from the Horror thread, to cut down on the derailment.
    That was one of my wife's biggest gripes about Handmaid's Tale too! She absolutely loathed those long close-ups.

    I wasn't particularly a fan myself, but my biggest gripe was the faces she'd make, and the way she'd act. I found it very hard to believe that she'd get away with her glares and sarcasm, when the world they'd built clearly showed other women getting hung, or at least mutilated, for thought crimes. Hell - a commander's wife lost a finger for daring to suggest women be allowed to read! But somehow she could sneer and snarl at any commander, and lace her words with dripping sarcasm every time she spoke to Aunt Lydia.

    BTW - anybody watch Dear White People? S3 has a bit of HT parody in it.

    How good is The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance? Two episodes down so far and it's like going into another world.

    Finally jumped into Handmaid's last month and ran through the 3 seasons over the course of 2 weeks.
    Good show, brutal in its savagery, but a thought-provoking and compelling story well-acted by the cast.

    Only real complaint is exactly what's described above. Like we get it, Moss is the "superstar" of the show, but damn those myriad extended close-ups got tiresome real fast...
    Also agreed the leeway her character gets with all the backsass and snark is completely far-fetched. Any amount of realism in that regard would've had her hanging from the wall midway through S1.

    Doom Patrol . . . HELL NO!

    I have endured a lot of junk on TV over the years but didn't even make it to the end of episode 1!

    The third season of Hip - Hop Evolution just released. Amazingly detailed series with a lot of incredible interviews.

    Wu - Tang: An American Saga just released a couple days ago. It'll only be 10 episodes, and they're droppin' three every Wednesday, as I was told. It's pretty damn good, and the kids they got to play the Wu is scarily accurate, especially ODB(RIP).

    Wu is pretty amazing. I feel if you didn't know the group though, it would be hard to try and figure out whom is who. I was even questioning myself a bit, but i was right. I can't wait til wednesday. but I hope this goes further, 10 episodes seems too small when it has such great potential. it was pretty easy off the bat to know Rza ODB andMethod Man. Ghostface had me confused for a minute, but i figured it out. and Raekwon was easy as it unfolded a bit. i think we are still waiting for u god, inspectah deck and masta killa to show themselves.

    Okay...

    Maybe it's because I don't have a nine-year-old, but I ended up sticking around only long enough to get to the opening credits. I mean, it's totally on me for being surprised, in 2019, that 90% of the images on screen were programmed by a team of thousands, but I still found it immensely off putting. That, and being told the plot and backstory in the opening minute rather than being shown over the course of the proceedings.

    So... what you people are saying is that it's actually great and totally worth sticking around for? Is that what you were saying? I want to trust you, really I do, but I'll need a few more sentences of recommendation before I commit.

    No, it’s not. I watched a few episodes just for the artistry and puppetry. I had already lost interest in it before episode 1 was over. But just stopped after episode 2. The original Dark Crystal was a product of its time. I think because of Stranger Things there is now this idea that anything nostalgic will get watched. I didn’t need an 8 hour long Dark Crystal especially not in 2019.

    Okay, so the pace is a little slow and there are elements to the story that are childlike. And of course we know how it ends. The gelflings all die! Well that's what I liked saying to my gf. And weirdly it ended with the idea of another season. Buuut, it was enjoyable. Like anime is enjoyable. It is predictable but fun. Heroic arks, great villains. And they created a lot of cool puppets. Some of the CGI was annoying, and I'm not a fan of aquafina or her voice. Anyways, I'd give the show a B+. Just started Carnival Row, which is starting off rather cool. I can't really believe Orlando Bloom as a tough as nails detective but I'm going to watch the whole thing. We really are spoiled for science fiction/fantasy shows these days. I love it.

    I gotta say, I'm not into the Dark Crystal, dialogue and story-wise. Visually it's a non-stop treat, and I applaud the great, very balanced integration of practical and digital effects they've achieved. Kickass. I may put an ep or two of the show on again some time and just let it play with the sound off... maybe throw on a mix of King Crimson and Yes.

    Visual artistry and world-crafting aside, though... boils down to that I'm not impressed w/ megacorps continuing to spend millions to sell us fantasy allegories of "resistance" that lean hard on the nostalgia-dopamine button built into a 37-year old property. Feels very hollow and soporific to me, at this point.

    Thanks for the insights, netbuddies! Sorry, @skaldavsatanssol, I believe the nays have it at my house. Time saved, loss accepted.

    I'm 7 plus months off the squeef. Whenever I hop back off the wagon I'm going to watch The Dark Crystal, and freak out harder than I did when little kid me first saw the Skeksis' in the movie.
