    That's the part I haven't seen yet... I'm still not sure if I should actually consider it "canon" when I get to it, just based on what everyone has said.

    So much this.

    I thought season 4 was ok, but that's being REALLY generous, if I'm being honest. And it doesn't even hold a candle to the first three seasons. And honestly, the most heartbreaking thing to me is how different it was. It might as well have been a completely different show (like, no exaggeration).

    I gave up two episodes into season 5. I just could not force myself through it.

    The first three seasons, though? One of the best comedies ever made. It's the closest I've ever seen a show come to matching The Simpsons in their prime.

    So, I saw A Quiet Place 2 over the weekend and enjoyed it quite a bit. I don't think it was as good as the first one (and I wasn't really expecting it to be) but it was still a really solid, fun movie. Also, it was so great to be in a theater watching a movie like this again. There were a few times when the audience gasped or jumped and it was so much fun to be back in that environment again. I really missed watching big movies with a crowd like that.

    I also finally got around to watching The Vanishing (the original Dutch film, not the remake) and holy CRAP, was that a good movie. I had heard so much about it over the years and it was always on my list but I finally sat down and watched it and I really enjoyed it. It also stuck with me, I've been thinking about it ever since. Super disturbing, really unique. If you haven't had the chance to see it I would definitely recommend checking it out but go in knowing as little as possible. Seriously. The less you know the better.

    Finally, I checked out The Mosquito Coast yesterday and I am really digging it so far. I'm two episodes in and there are only seven, so I am trying not to burn through it too quickly but it's really hard. It's not anything amazing but it is just a really solid, fun show.

    On the last episode of Invincible. I know how it ends, the memes are everywhere, but it oddly doesn't matter because the "how you get there" is pretty compelling. Just about the only thing I would critique is the oft-repeated "I get it" that I seem to only hear in media. I don't really hear anyone else use that phrase other than in movies and television. It annoys me every time because that phrase is used most frequently to preface a bit of exposition or explanation of internal motivations that you can't show on a screen.

    Otherwise it's been great. The cast is amazing - Jason Mantzoukas is the secret best casting - and it's up and down the line great. I can't speak to the differences because I haven't read the book yet but after a few interviews I heard with Robert Kirkman I know about them. Eight episodes vs. several books and you have to cut / shrink things.

    "the pitfall is that it makes these opening episodes a little weaker; there are so many characters happening here, so many story threads to put in place, that it's hard to know what to invest in as a viewer."
    I don't know what this means. You invest in the show and the stories it gives you when you watch it....soooo...what? Critics are the worst.

    read the comic! You will not be disappointed and it's only like 60 issues total I think.

    Clarkson's Farm. I know Jeremy Clarkson is a dickhead, but this show is great.

    it really really is. it's also a gut punch to all of those gifted kids who ended up coasting through the important years of their life instead of learning actual study skills to help with college. also helicopter parents.

    Sophie is the little girl from The Book Thief, another movie she was excellent in.

    the episode is probably locked by now but Adam was on Smodcast with the director / writer and it's a good listen.

    Nice! I mean, yeah, it does come off a bit too shiny and new but there's a lot of heart in it.

    (and depending on how much you know about Montreal class and ethnic history, may depend on how much of the Canadian humour you accessible)

    Have you watched "Rhymes for Young Ghouls"?

    I've not seen anyone talking about this anywhere, and didn't know the film existed until seeing it in the TV guide...



    ...In which Evan Rachel Wood is born into a family of scam artists who are incapable of genuinely benevolent feeling. Even her own name (Old Dolio) is a remnant from an attempted grift, and she's left completely unaware of any tenderness or happiness in the world, afraid to even be touched. It's like a character study of the people you read about who were raised in cults. It's really smartly written, lots of subtext and foreshadowing; I thought it was the best new film I've seen over the last year.
