  1. Finished Season 2. A solid injection of philosophical mythos that was more tangible this time around helped propel the narrative quite well. Tone felt more or less the same for me, but the complex character development and their relationships ground everything really well. The show carries a swaggering weight of uneasiness and inevitable climax throughout that really engages.
  2. I just finished "International Assassin," I'll let you know soon!
  3. Ah. Never seen it deacribed that way before.
  4. Two X's?
  5. I like The Shins but haven't really kept up with them for awhile. One of my favorite bands is returning to my area on tour later this year, so I got in the mood to revisit them, as well as the opener they used a few years ago.
  6. It's sort of justified by the plot, anyway. I just remember you talking about it awhile back, so when some of the characters quip about his looks, I found it pretty funny. But yes, the uniform is gone eventually.
  7. Yes, his performance is great. Can't blame someone for being attractive. It's hard to imagine him as the DJ from Zoolander. I have three episodes left in Season 2.
  8. Any love for Charlie Wilson's War?
  9. Brilliantly teasing and interesting, as was the mythology in LOST, which you still haven't seen, right? Since you liked this one you should definitely check it out. The universe building mythos is exactly the same, just fitted into a much different framework of network TV and traditional archetypical good vs evil.
  10. So I've just watched "Axis Mundi," and what I thought was just an awesome mythological premier, turned out to be an entirely new setting for the core cast. Do we ever go back to Mapleton and that town's conflicts or does the show utilize an anthology-esque format each season, with new opening credits and now an inserted "previously on..." segment?
  11. The Leftovers Season 1 is finished. Lindelof lifts the narrative playbook from LOST and applies it to a much more complex dramatic context. The first two episodes are a bit rocky but from "Two Boats and a Helicopter" onward, it's pretty good stuff. I think it's funny that @Quintus's major concern, the protagonist being too good looking, is referenced several times. Some of the music selections felt a bit off in the beginning, but as the season progressed, and their duality as both non-diagetic and diagetic sound became apparent, I started to like it more. Another issue is the suspension of disbelief required in some aspects of the show. Such as, how the hell Garvey hasn't been fired or suspended due to his belligerent and clearly corrupt actions as chief of police. Or how the Guilty Remnant are funded and appear to have access to unlimited cash to serve their purpose (perhaps answered later on). And lastly, the wildly exaggerated daily activities of high schoolers. This last one also got better as the show progressed, but I still couldn't get over how over-the-top that first party was. Snorting cocaine and stabbing each other with heated utensils was never a part of my high school days.
  12. It's Mad Max on water. I like it, and who can resist Dennis Hopper here?
  13. I'm off for 6 days so it's time to check a show off the watchlist: The Leftovers Lindelof, return to me!
  14. 10 Cloverfield Lane is a horror film, though?
