She's in that shit? Oh man. She is something. I have no idea why she hasn't "caught on" a bit more in Hollywood.

I'm only 3 episodes in, but I've been enjoying it. I'm only vaguely familiar with the original real GLOW from back in the day, but from what I can recall, there's plenty of similarities.

I can't speak to the new series, as I haven't seen any of it yet, but the original is pretty freaking amazing, though I do think it gets a bit lost around the middle stretch of season 2... there's some definite filler in there... but all in all, it turns out to be pretty goddamn excellent. Especially if you factor Twin speaks: Fire Walk With Me into the equation.

Returning to our discussion of Best TV Shows, I think a solid case could be made for the U.S. version of House of Cards at this point. Few shows are as fully and completely engrossing as that one, and it manages to do moral ambiguity right. Definitely deserves consideration.

I stopped watching Silicon Valley mid-current season because I gave up my HBO account (essentials and non-essentials and whatnot), but yeah... still fucking hilarious and one of the funniest shows on tv.

good for you! and congrats on getting control of your money. now have some patience and wait for it to hit your local library or something. i rent them off netflix and yeah i'm watching last year's season but enjoying just the same.

btw ive also been scouting amazon for shows (living in the boonies i depend on them for supplies of all kinds, so prime video is a free bonus) and there's some good stuff there. i should write some quick reviews.

Better Call Saul season 3 ended last week.

Now I'm sad as fuck, and feel a bit lost.

It ended with a bang though. But it left me just desperate for more, just as each individual show does. The idea that it'll be another YEAR before the next chapter is almost too much to fucking bear. Goddammit.

Yeah, I've had another massive expense pop up, this time a health related one. Very severely abscesses tooth is requiring an emergency root canal, and my co-pay is pretty fucking massive. So no unnecessary treats for me!

I watched one show on there... a legal drama starring Billy Bob Thornton called Goliath. It was actually pretty goddamn good. And I'm not sure if Handmad's Tale is on Amazon or Hulu (one of the green-hued ones), but if it's on Amazon you should watch that shit. I've heard it's great.

Almost done with American Gods, season 1.

Can't believe it's only 8 episodes, and that, like, 2-3 of them have been based on stories that didn't happen in the actual book! Oh well. Pretty goddamn excellent job of putting such a massive thing together.

Again, though, waiting a fucking year for the continuation seems outright cruel. For people who didn't read the book, I guess it's fine. But for the rest of us, who have been praying for this fucker for ages, it's like torture.

WOW... this is really, really, really fucking good. Just... wow. I was not expecting this. I ran out of super hero-themed shit to binge on, so I put this on to fall asleep to the other night. But I did not sleep.

This is a really fucking good, adult-themed, beautifully filmed and edited, weird ass and utterly terrifying show that bears exactly zero resemblance to anything X-men related that's ever been on screen before.



FX is kinda killing it these days. Wow.

I watch a lot of SPIKE channel:
- Bar Rescue
- Ink Master
- Dutch Ink Master is in it's first season now too
- Face Off
- and of course the Glory MMA fighting once in a while. It's strange I hate watching boxing, because I don't understand what is fun in getting knocked out and broken noses. But I do like watching MMA where they get their arms broken and stuff

You kind of have to know boxing to appreciate it. It is a pretty awesome sport. I was in PAL boxing as a kid. Great stuff. A couple of good ones for highlights are anything with Eusebio Pedroza, Salvador Sanchez, early Duran

somewhat watching Poldark, it's unintentionally funny, and the last season of Orphan Black

It is really good. If you've only seen the 1st episode don't worry about it dipping in form; it maintains to the end. I haven't read the book either. I'm sure it missed loads but it still felt utterly epic and coherent to me. Don't wanna say too much to avoid spoilers but yeah, loved it.

i watched the whole of it nonstop and it was BRILLIANT

i think regardless of what may have been taken out it felt very much like tolstoy. i mean from the things i've read from him (ivan ilich, anna karenina, various tales, etc) i thought it was right on the money with his obsessions. this regardless of actual faithfulness to the text. i was afraid it wouldn't feel that way because in some interview the screenwriters said they had "removed some of the preaching" and let the characters shine through-- but i actually like tolstoy's preaching, and i think his themes did show very well no matter what.

dammit dammit dammit it was so good. the end even better than the beginning.

and funny thing i saw/realized that solzhenitisyn's a day in the life of ivan denisovich owes so much to this.

i really wanna read the book now. i really do.

Wow. I'm sold on War and Peace.

btw, read about 50 pages a day and you'll be done in a month. There are these long, discursive chapters which are essentially essays on Tolstoy's theory of History, which can be skipped I guess when reading (and certainly when adapting for film), so it can be even shorter, although ANNA KARENINA is a tad shorter and kind of better. I keep meaning to re-read WAR but I just end up re-re-re-reading ANNA.

My only criticism (and this is more at the BBC than the series) is that I wish they'd have the nerve to pour the same amount of resources into something a bit less obvious (for them). Everyone knows the BBC makes great adaptations but they invariably focus on the same kind of source material (their next big project is apparently Les Miserables). I don't question the quality of those productions, and it's understandable in the current financial climate that they'd want to play it safe, but at this rate the BBC's in danger of becoming an acronym for banquets, ballgowns and cummerbunds.
