September, you sucked giant donkey d**ks.
Yet somehow I was able to consume a metric ton of entertainment (probably because my computer died). This is what I shoved into my media gullet.
Rick & Morty – Season two was pretty good but couldn’t compare to season one. It’s near impossible to top the scenes that used DMX and Mazzy Star. Those moments made that season and won me over.
Casual – The further one gets from the pilot, the better the show gets… except for that season one closer. They ran over a huge, emotional decision and I’m not sure if I’ll jump back in for season two.
Doctor Who – [SPOILER WARNING] – I felt nothing when Clara died. Bring back Rose.
Fleabag – DEARSWEETJESUSYOUMUSTSTARTWATCHINGTHISSHOWNOW!!!
The IT Crowd – Caught the final episode. It was a nice bookend but I would have been happy without it.
Gotham – So I got to that part where the Original Poison Ivy jumps into the sewer and Busty, F**kable Poison Ivy emerges. I turned off the TV. Not sure I can go back to the series. Maybe if they squeeze her into a Power Girl suit.
Lucifer – Looking forward to more fun with these devils.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine – If they don’t get Jake and the Captain back to Brooklyn, I fear they have jumped the shark.
Flaked – Curious about white privilege? Catch some of this show.
The Jim Gaffigan Show – Lord help me but I’d go back to being Catholic for Ashley Williams’ smile.
Continuum – Am I going to finish the series because I once had a massive crush on Rachel Nichols?
Son of Zorn – Two episodes in and it’s fun. Favorite bit is each episode’s title card.
The Good Place – Heaven help me but I lurv Kristen Bell.
Justified – Approaching the end of season two and lordy this show is awesome.
Designated Survivor – Cool concept but I don’t know if I’ll stick around for the whole season.
The Hateful Eight – So it’s a Western Reservoir Dogs? Okay, not bad.
Creed – Exactly what I expected, exactly what I wanted. Bravo.
Amy – Did she always have a camera on her? Is this how it’s going to be for everyone going forward?
Hell or High Water – Maybe the best American film (about America) of the year.
La La Land – Yeah, I saw it. I can’t tell you about it but I saw it.
Reamde by Neal Stephenson – I now understand why someone told me this was “like 14 Die Hards” rolled into one book. Holy s**t, this was AWESOME!
Commonwealth by Ann Patchett – Maybe the best book I’ve read this year (but probably my second favorite).
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – If you loved Locke & Key (and I did), then you’ll love this book.
Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff – savoring every word.
Midnight, Texas – Still reading my way through the pilot script.
Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Five
DC Comic’s Bombshells
Doom – My mission: to brutally murder all monsters. Where do I sign up?
Here’s hoping October sucks less.
Over and out.
