    i mean, neither show is anything like hannibal other than slightly stylistically (and a little of the sense of humor).

    dead like me is funny and subdued, pushing daisies is really whimsical and sweet. it really depends on your mood. i love both, but pushing daisies has a bigger place in my heart.

    There was an enormous thread back on the old board, but then we had the big crash and ETS started from scratch. This happened after Lost had already wrapped up so I'm sure no one felt like there was any point. It's too bad, cause the old thread was so much fun.

    (Spoiler free) Thoughts?
    Er, not so sure about season 5 being the fan favorite. I always hear people refer to Season 5 as the one they hate the most because they introduce some goofy plotlines and focus way too much on unlikeable characters. In general, I think Lost is best during the first 2 or 3 seasons, and then it starts to decline. With S4 I could already feel a dip in quality, although there were still some really cool episodes. S5 is definitely the low point. That was tough to get through. S6 is a mixed bag, but it's still an massive improvement over S5.

    The basic problem with Lost is that they were masters of setting up a good mystery, but they were not so good at delivering a resolution. That's why the show is sort of "front loaded" when it comes to quality. The first few seasons are so fun and mysterious and evocative, but after a while you can't help but feeling like they lost their muse. That said, I still enjoyed it for what it is. Even during their worst stretches, they were still capable of pulling off some cool moments.

    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

    First time I've seen it since I was probably about 10, and holy shit. Nostalgia overload. <3 I remember EVERYTHING.

    BBC Two "The Human Body: Secrets of Your Life Revealed" documentary, 3 parts. Like, for example when some pathogen enters you, it is detected by some... forgot what exactly, white blood cell?, which does not attack that pathogen but takes sample (!), delivers it to lymphatic system node, there it is compared with database :-) of already fought pathogens and then billions of immunoglobuline are going to kill it. Or, we are not born with fear nor disgust (to rotting food for example), but learn it. Or how mother milk delivers much needed bacteria to children's digestive system. Very entertaining watch.

    Goddamn, this Jim and Andy documentary (about Jim Carrey's CRAZY ass method approach to Man on the Moon) is fucking fascinating.
    Jim Carrey is a lunatic.
