OH HEY SYMBOLS!

What did you think of The New Pope? Sequel to Young Pope? Came out in… Uh... maybe late last year?

Good stuff.

Another cool little thing about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, I watched an episode two nights ago where the owner of the comedy club name drops Nichols and May, meaning Mike Nichols and Elaine May, literally the night after I had just watched Mikey and Nicky which was directed by Elaine May. Just a cool kismet moment, which I might not have appreciated had I not seen the movie and did some rudimentary internet searching on Elaine May.

Been watching Anthony Bourdain's parts unknown on Netflix. When he died he had totally passed me by. I don't think we got him on TV here in the UK. I might be wrong, mind. Anyway, finally seeing what the hype was in this brilliant series.

I wanted to watch a cop/crime series on netflix and realised I had never seen 24 yet, so there you go. Not sure if I'll last all 8 seasons, let's see how far it will get until I get bored by it... only watched the first two episodes so far. For a 20 year old series it still looks good. The multi-framing is a bit annoying though, it was probably new at the time.


An oddity I noticed: according to Netflix there are 9 seasons (or 8 1/2 it seems, the 9th season doesn't have as much episodes), according to imdb there were 8...
(edit: ah ok, season 9 was shot five years after season 8)

I stalled from watching 24 for the moment, it's too hot right now to watch such a suspenseful hectic series. So instead I'm binching on this:



 





it's cool, after watching most of the first season's 26 episodes, only one was really stupid. The rest is funny




And also trying to keep on track with the NBA, we get sometimes one game a day to watch, if there's no football or any other sports.

Almost through Star Trek TNG now and I've started watching DS9 now.



A way more solid start than TNG. Also dig that they decided to portray the relationships of the main characters in a more adversarial way than one would have been used to from its predecessor. It's certainly different in tone, but the character development is quite natural. I used to watch DS9 halfheartedly as a kiddo back in the late 90s and possibly some reruns in the early 2000s. Funny how such obvious things like tone, subtext etc. just go completely over your head as a wee one. Looking forward to catching up with it some more.

Generally really well made, but there are some things in it that absolutely wouldn't fly today (and rightfully so). Very rough around the edges, but the core writing is quite engaging, as are its characters. I have some other minor gripes like the multitude of deus ex machina solutions that seem to save the day quite often, but a really enjoyable watch nonetheless.




Also: Stopped watching after I got to one episode in which the transphobia was just mind-boggingly vicious, even for the times it was produced in.



Besides, all the goodwill it had gained with some solid character moments in the first few episodes was completely eroded once the main character seemed to turn increasingly OP with each passing episode, turning it into a monster/obstacle of the week show. Bah, trite.

Lovecraft Country seems good.

I haven’t read the book, but I like how they make it very clear, like, right away, that Lovecraft was a racist fuck in addition to being a really imaginative and groundbreaking writer.

I haven’t read the book this time so I’m interested to see what the fuck happens hah
