stumbled across mr. robot as i was clicking around. had only seen the name of the show once recently. pleasantly surprised so far. not great by any stretch but as noirish hacker conspiracy shows go it has promise as summer filler.
the second iteration of true detective starts tonight on hbo. i have avoided any reviews to this point. looks like the critics are considerably mixed as to their enthusiams.
watched the first one. will probly watch more.
so yeah, attack on titan. first anime ive watched in a while. was the biggest title of 2013. mostly engaging although i agree with the reviewers issues with it being overly emotive as the menace is palpable enough. seems like a problem often found in anime where they would rather allow the characters to scream out how theyre feeling than let the action and the character reaction speak for itself. but that just may be a stylistic choice that comes with the territory. the other problem he mentions is pacing but that is far less noticeable when you binge 25 episodes in three days.
not difficult to find as there are streaming anime sites abound.
game of thrones had a lacklustre start to the season but people will mostly remember the last two episode when looking back. next week is the finale. despite it being the most expensive show on tv i still think these 10 episode seasons are weak. why bother having one of the most popular shows on tv that drives subscriptions and then penny pinch? whats 10 or 20 million dollars extra when you have 2 billion in net profits?
final letterman on tonight. guest bill murray and bob dylan.
whos up for every episode of mad men? starts tomorrow night and ends leading into the series finale on sunday at ten. screen rant has some suggested eps to re-view.
been kind of avoiding the kurt cobain doc, montage of heck, on a loop on hbo this month. but got sucked into it tonight. really well done. combines interviews with home videos growing up and early clubs gigs while animating drawing and doodles from his copious notebooks and bits of himself that he had tape recorded as a youth. and theres other elements of the bricolage like reenactments and sort of stream of consciousness video montages. worth a few minutes at the very least.
Just binge watched two episodes of Grace and Frankie. Well it felt like a binge. Will continue later.
