Miniaturist (BBC1) Really well done. Holland 1600's. Great costumes, interiors and acting. It did, however, have a bit of a supernatural element to it that felt contrived. Romola Garai and Alex Hassell were great in this, 2 parter, 2.5 hours. I was impressed!

I JUST WATCHED PETER CAPALDI’S FINAL EPISODE AS THE DOCTOR!

He turned out to be such a badass Doctor.

 


He’d be a good Dream/Morpheus from “Sandman” also, methinks.

Ugh. Time for Jodie Whittaker.

He had the qualities to be one of the best but I think the final verdict has to be that he did a very good job with often not that great material. But just as Jodie replaces Pete, so Chibnall replaces Moffat, and an entirely new era begins.

EDIT: Great call on Morpheus, btw.

Thanks! Yeah, that just came to me last night. Think itís kind of perfect. I also think Neil Gaiman wrote his version of Sandman with a lot of Doctor-esque qualities, because Neilís such a mad fucking Whovian. So the parts just might be symbiotic by nature. I think Tennant could handle it too. But Capaldi *looks* the part. And has plenty of natural menace in his face.

I was not a fan of his Doctor at first, but he grew on me big time. As a Doctor I just loved him. He gave some of the greatest monologues Iíve ever seen in the series, and heís one of the better actors to ever try the role. I think his Doctor + the writing of the Tenant era + the production budget and arcs of the Smith era, all combined would make for a near-perfect Doctor.

Iím actually looking forward to the new gal. I just havenít liked her in anything else. But I trust the franchise. Itís going to be a new era, for sure.

I’m finally watching Mad Man, and goddammit it actually is really good. I was kind of hoping I’d be able to be too cool for Mad Men, but it’s just really goddamn well-made, and Don Draper has fucking chopped off a little piece of my soul and put it in his pocket and now I need to follow him around until I get it back.

Dammit.

I thought I was gonna be too cool for the Americans too. But ... well, that’s obviously not a thing.

The new Black Mirror's USS Callister episode was one of the most enjoyable 1.5 hours I have ever watched. Absolutely loved it.

Is Black Mirror an anthology or something? Different cast/local every season?

Iíve never seen it. I hear itís really uncomfortably terrifying.

Lemme know if Iím missing something good.

I may be wrong, but i think it's per-episode, with short seasons/series, depending on where you are in the world for verbiage.

S1 is 3 episodes
S2 is 4
S3-4 is 6 each.

Sorry I mean ďlocaleĒ not ďlocal.Ē I was asking about the setting and characters.

Like, is it like American Horror Story? Different story every season with different characters, all thinly woven together and co-existing under a loose greater ďtheme,Ē or is it just like a regular show, where you follow the same basic story and characters from episode 1 to the end?

Yes, correct. Stand-alone episodes. Each "episode" is it's own little twisted short story. Very Twilight Zone or Tales from the Crypt, I think.

I really love the series in general. Some episodes can be hit or miss, but I really dig it as a whole.

It is, and that is what turns a lot of people off on it. I am absolutely the target market for it though. It really speaks to my apprehension and disdain for modern technology and where it "could" take society. Some people find it a little heavy-handed and preachy in that sense though. I think it's clever.

The first episode really can leave an odd taste in people's mouths though too, and I don't feel is totally representative of the series as a whole. Make it through that episode and you are good to go. White Bear and Shut Up and Dance were a few of my favs of past seasons. USS Callister this season so far.

From a creative standpoint though, I just think it is really well done. The casting, acting, writing, editing, etc... Just all very solid, imo.

Not totally sure in comparison. I have not seen American Horror Story (but will likely watch it soon based on this thread). Sounds interesting.

If anything, I would say that all the episodes are very thinly woven together under the general theme of "technology" in a sense.

Geographically, you could say it takes place all over. There really is not anything tying each episode to the other, besides a few little easter eggs and such. Each episode is completely stand-alone in style, locale, period, etc... You could hop around watching anywhere in the seasons and not get lost.

i started watching american horror story and it was brutal, rapey, and extremely dark

so much so that i stopped watching it. not in any sort of scandalized way, just basic aversion to unpleasantness.
