Consumed September 2016 – 30. September, 2016

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.

Television
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.

Blindspot
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.

Bob’s Burgers

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.

Movies
The Hateful Eight – So it’s a Western Reservoir Dogs? Okay, not bad.

hateful_eight

Creed – Exactly what I expected, exactly what I wanted. Bravo.

creed_echo-rocky

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.

hell-or-high-water

La La Land – Yeah, I saw it. I can’t tell you about it but I saw it.

lala-land

Books
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!

Reamde

Commonwealth by Ann Patchett – Maybe the best book I’ve read this year (but probably my second favorite).

commonwealth_ann-patchett

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – If you loved Locke & Key (and I did), then you’ll love this book.

nos4a2_joe-hill

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff – savoring every word.

Pilots
Midnight, Texas – Still reading my way through the pilot script.

Comics
Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Five
DC Comic’s Bombshells

Video Games
Doom – My mission: to brutally murder all monsters. Where do I sign up?

Consumed August 2016 – 31. August, 2016

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.

Television
Wayward Pines – Season 2 had one crazy, amazing twist. Kinda wish it had happened earlier, and we could have explored the issue it raised.

BoJack Horseman
Justified
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.

Mr-Robot_Darlene

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.

Stranger-Things_El

Better Call Saul – Taking the slowest cruise through season 2.

Narcos – Finally finished season one. Really good. Not amazing. Maybe great.

Narcos_Pablo

Casual – I hated the pilot but so far episode two is a vast improvement.

Movies
The TownBen is a pretty good action director.

Suicide Squad – Would have been cooler as a music video.

Suicide-Squad_Harley

Jason Bourne – the movie equivalent of waking up after a night of heavy drinking.

Jason-Bourne_Gun

Don’t Think Twice – The most depressing comedy you’ll see. But I love Gillian Jacobs.

Dont-Thin-Twice_Gillain

Books
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!

Pilots
Taken
Midnight, Texas

Scripts
Black Sunday

Comics
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.

Wu-Black-Canary-Fight

Captain America – Goddamn, Remender and Romita Jr should do another book together.

Captain-America_JRJ

Video Games
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.
