    I went to the Youtube main page and there was a "season 3 ending explained" for The Umbrella Academy that was posted. Jeez, can you at least do an episode by episode breakdown first?

    Finally watched "Girlfriend's Day" last night. A nice, dark comedy. Or a nicely dark comedy. Spoiler: didn't think they needed the bum fights angle; could have been achieved otherwise

    Watched the first three episodes of Umbrella Academy. It's got to have different writers this year, right? Spoiler: They aren't so far, the first three episodes are written by writers from previous season

    There's no reason for the show to be moving so slow at this point. The siblings have grown with each other and yet they are back to bickering like the first season. Very disappointing.

    What wasn't disappointing at all was the first Sparrow/Umbrella fight.



    That was three minutes of me just laughing my ass off. I wish it would have ended the same way as the other time gleek girl used her power.

    Yeah, I've lost my patience for the show, I think. I have no interest in watching people make stupid impulsive decisions in situations that wouldn't lead to a fight if they just fucking explain what happened to them.

    Is it good though? Gotta be honest I haven't really been feeling the scenes and trailers they've released so far. Visually, something just looks off to me. But I hope I'm wrong. We all know the story is good so it comes down to the execution.

    I agree that visually it wasn't what I've been picturing in my head for the last 25 years or so. But I enjoyed it a lot.

    The Woodstock documentary did my head in.

    The guys behind it denying there was any drastic problem and blaming the wrong people and then having no one to point that out to them (particularly the documentary makers) it just baffles me the ignorance and apathy on display.

    Really left a sour taste in my mouth. Ugh.

    My husband was there and he said the amount of garbage is always the first thing he thinks of about Woodstock.

    I was there, and yes. There were a lot of times when plastic bottles were just flying through the air non-stop.

    The series ended with an interview of Michael Lang and then text saying he died 2 or 3 months later. In this context, who gives a shit? This documentary is full of "bias" or trying to sweep things under the rug.

    I've worked many festivals and the garbage all over the grounds reeks of someone trying to save money and pass off the buck, which means volunteers. Not too hard to see why they didn't pick up the grounds.

    Yep, the whole thing. Parts can definitely drag a bit but it’s more than worth it to stick with it.

    They laid the blame wholly on the contractors they sold the service rights to; because "this is a for-profit event". As they did with food services and price gouging.
    This was all the "adult"/professional organizers fault.

    When you don't take care of peoples needs (and reasonable wants), bad things will always happen as a result. And then you add in intoxicants and heat. After you've made them angry with prices...

    But also, I look at this and see what's happened during COVID-time and think; "yeah, this was predictable... the people who were in their 20s are in their 40s now and uh... yeah"

    I really enjoyed that one. Binged it about two years ago and then waited for the final season. I miss it but glad they ended it rather than drag on much more. The cast was amazing.

    This was mildly infuriating to watch. But educational, b/c I remember checking out of that site EARLY. I had went there bc of the initial buzz/the fact that it was known musicians who were on there alot of times, but it seems I missed the entire thing where it transitioned to him aggressively seeking out nudes etc from unwitting people that weren't submitting on their own. I do remember there was an aspect of people submitting their own pics to purposefully be rated/get trashed, but that clearly was a smaller aspect than I thought.
