admittedly the show has lost some steam in the writing. it was so tightly constructed for a few eps. biggest issue is obviously the chandra kiss. wtf lol

Yeah that was pretty ridiculous. Also Naz starting to chase the dragon was a little whack.

really enjoyed the latest episode of Mr. Robot. Nice nagging paranoia throughout.

But, I think I'm starting to develop some kind of eye muscle strain from staring at the bottom left/right of the screen all the time. It was hip & cool framing of a scene to a point, but it's creeping into my real life where I'm always staring at peoples breasts or crotches whilst in conversation. No bueno.

Mr Jinx - Only watched the first episode but I like where this is going. I've kept from reading anything about it. Basically a body is found in bits in the sea and all points to a heir to one of the biggest property developers (or something) in New York. His wife already went missing years ago.

 

I was recommended it after watching Making a Murderer.

Mr. Robot - the paranoia is palatable. Funny thing is, the FBI is not really close with the investigation - unless that investment banker gave up darlene's name.

Really good episode that's moving the plot forward. The Susan Jacobs thing will come back to bite them in the ass though.

Have you seen The Staircase?

lol yes

 

Got to queue up Halt and Catch Fire (on season 2 now) after I watch Mr Robot to recalibrate my eyeballs (H&CF is pretty lushly shot tbqh; lots of good naturalistic lighting).

 

Edit: got to love how the Mr Robot camera gaze is basically that of an autist avoiding eye contact, though.

bojack the horseman - i find this style of humor where they machine gun you with those jewy, witty jokes as if checking if you're quick enough to get them all is pretty irritating, arrested development was kinda similar in that sense too (guess will arnett is attracted to this sort of thing?). every character being a fast paced joke generator is kinda messing up with coherence of the characters themselves - bojack can come up with those clever, multi level ironic constructs but can't gather enough self awareness to act a simple line in the movie script properly? kinda fishy. for a show that's hailed as cutting edge it feels a quite constrained too, like you know very well where its limits are and what places it won't go. i didn't get this feeling with rick and morty, for example, where it can get really wild and catch you off guard with its imagination and wackiness. i understand that the topic itself makes it stay pretty grounded to this irl holywood biz, but it's a fucking cartoon after all, you can do much more than just replace people with animals..

 

 

i still watch it because there are quite a few poignant and funny moments and just because i'm curious where they will go with it, but it's a big meh overall, i probably would ditch it if i wasn't in that limbo where i kinda make enough money and kinda have enough time to waste on mediocre shows.

I haven't, though remember the guy who recommended it talking about a staircase murder series. That'll be next then. I presume it's worth the watch?

only the beginning has bradbury talking in his office- mainly making references to things he has around and how he takes inspiration from anything to create a story. the endings are just simple end credits.

 

you can find the entire series on youtube in HD (although it looks more like standard definition)

The Night Manager - I mean it's definitely a higher quality of spy-jinks than Homeland, but it's still pretty poor. David Harewood us a deece actor afaik, but his American accent is dire.

Mr. Robot - I still can't decide whether I like it. Sometimes it seems like it's just trying way too hard to be edgy. Also wtf was with that "Full House" episode? That was real shark jump material. At least the computer shit is fairly accurate (which honestly idgaf about unless it's hilariously off), even though they'll have like a real tense scene and the character driving it is... encoding a video w/ ffmpeg. Thrilling. Trenton is the most interesting character by a long shot. I would like to see more of her than the adolescent drama queens this show is full of (Elliott, Darlene, Angela, Mobley...)

Halt and Catch Fire - I like this one. 80s vibes aren't nearly as thick as Stranger Things which gives it room to develop characters. It does seem like the cast is maybe a little too big right now and they're trying to figure out what to do with e.g. that Ryan dude.

the ffmpeg thing - thought it was funny, because later Dom I think also used ffmpeg to split the video into frames.. not sure why she did that but it was like they and her used the same tools... kind of like as you would see both the bad & the good guys drink coffee or something: oh shit coffee! We are all just people! Only with ffmpeg :)

I love that the series can be so subtle about these things... but yeah sometimes it's not subtle at all and that's where sometimes it's the cringe...

 

also, I really like that it's focusing on the women right now. They're all being badass and weird and pretty cool
