I keep losing time. Some how it keeps getting sucked up by the secondary and tertiary needs of life instead of the primary directives.
Regardless, we must solider on. Here’s what I consumed this past month.
Wayward Pines – Season 2 had one crazy, amazing twist. Kinda wish it had happened earlier, and we could have explored the issue it raised.
Mr. Robot – Finished season 1 and it was good but I didn’t feel connected in the final few episodes. Still, it is a singular television show. I praise it for its bold vision.
Stranger Things – While the finale got me, this felt like a nostalgia overdose. Too calculated, too cool, It felt like the Netflix algorithm had written this show (think of how McDonald’s put sugar in their salads to make them more addictive). Don’t’ get me wrong, it was well done, but it lacked a humanity for me.
Better Call Saul – Taking the slowest cruise through season 2.
Narcos – Finally finished season one. Really good. Not amazing. Maybe great.
Casual – I hated the pilot but so far episode two is a vast improvement.
The Town – Ben is a pretty good action director.
Suicide Squad – Would have been cooler as a music video.
Jason Bourne – the movie equivalent of waking up after a night of heavy drinking.
Don’t Think Twice – The most depressing comedy you’ll see. But I love Gillian Jacobs.
Multiple Choice by Alejandro Zambra – Only if you have time to waste.
Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff – Still the best book I’m taking forever to read.
Reamde by Neal Stephenson – Like 14 Die Hards in one book. Freakin’ excellent!
We Stand On Guard – Not my favorite Brian K Vaughn but if you like Canadians and mechs, you’ll find this irresistible.
Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Five
DC Comic’s Bombshells
Black Canary – The team behind this book is awesome! Annie Wu needs to do more.
Captain America – Goddamn, Remender and Romita Jr should do another book together.
Fallout 4 – Finally finished the main campaign. Goddamn, that’s the kinda of rabbit hole that’s dangerous for me (because I love it so damn much). BTW, I sided w/ The Railroad (couldn’t get down w/ The Brotherhood of Steel or The Institute).
About ready to drop dead from sleep. Over and out.
