the terrible british series about government espionage wasn't imitation game but something called the last... the last enemy or something. government spying on civilians and some terrorism subplot. each chapter even has some sort of earnest introduction by some actor.

it's complete shit. watch it if you can lol. awful!

the turing movie was so-so. turing's story itself is great, just the movie as a finished product didn't do it for me--had a hallmark movie of the week flavor to it. his khan of the future, i'm sorry but montalbŠn owns that forever. i blame jj abrams from it though.

anyway, frumious b. is great though-- he really is a good actor. also appears to be a very decent person IRL. i have no complaints about him. i was just commenting on his ubiquity vs. that of the much less visible don jon.

I enjoyed Mr R S2, it's been a bit on the confusing side, though,

I'm watching Show Me a Hero, Oscar Issac. Pretty well put together, he's a new city councilor in Yonkers NY during the late 80's. Federal desegregation order and low income housing background. It's really well done. Alfred Molina shows his skills in this

Impossible, especially given the frequency with which the word has been used in other media. Wasn't there just a movie based on Through the Looking Glass? There was a detective novel (one I've never read) called "The Frumious Bandersnatch" as well.

Anyway, just to make sure you know I do indeed "get it" ...

from memory, so may not be perfect

"He took his vorpal sword in hand
Long time the maxim foe he sought
And rested he by the jubjum tree
And stood a while in thought
And as he stood, the jabberwock with eyes of flame
Came whistling through the fulgy woods and burbled as it came
And one, two and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack
And left it dead and with it's head he went galumphing back
"'And thou has slain the jabberwock?
Oh come to my arms, my beamish boy!
Of frumious day, calloo callay" he chortled in his joy.
Twas brillig and the slighthy toves
Did gyre and gimbal in the wabes
All mimsy were the borogroves
And the momes rathgrabed."

Ahaa! Yes!

I always remembered it as "Frabtious day, calloo callay" but, I know that's not right. Still, I've been known to recite that (falsely) when something sweet happens in my life... even "he chortled in his joy."

Now this is sappy, but my mother used to call "beamish boy" from time to time. I didn't mind.

Warning: nobody EVER watch the 100.

I know it has an inexplicable 90% rotten tomatoes rating (no fucking clue how that happened, as it's simply shit) ... but don't even think it.

maybe you've heard people compare it to LOST, the greatest show of our generation. Still! Don't do it!

It is exactly like LOST, only with spaceships instead of airplanes, bunkers instead of hatches, and with a terrible young adult cast that makes it feel like 90210. So despite all the countless things it rips off from LOST, it's ultimately the anti-LOST. It's as if LOST's loser juvenile delinquent little brother knocked up the Hunger Games and made a shame baby that was raised by the CW.

Don't ask me how I know this. It's not a story I care to tell. But dear god, heed me! Especially if you love lost -- oh, sweet Desmond, what have they done to you? -- stay as far away from this show as you physically can.

Seriously though, LOST is awesome. It's a great show. Great, great, great. Regular basic cable television has not seen that level of awesomeness since.

Maaayyyybe there have been some as-good offerings in the years since, but every one I can think of has had the benefit of being on a cable or premium network, or subscription service, where they can get away with more (blood, swearing, sex, drugs).

Breaking Bad — tremendous, of course.
Also I've never seen The Wire, so... yeah.

I have HBO, so I'll check it out and get back to you. Looks absolutely grotesque to me, probably tons of black-hearted fun.
