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.

justified_season02

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?

Here’s hoping October sucks less.

Over and out.

One Cop & Two Lawyer Shows That Better Kick Ass – 5. February, 2015

Allow me to stop being a writer for a moment and just be a fan. Television f**king rocks. This week alone I’m excited to catch up on The 100

And then there are all the shows I haven’t even started yet like Justified, Togetherness and 12 Monkeys.

But right now I want to highlight three up coming genre busting shows. First, the cop show.

Powers_s1_Key-Art

Yeah, it’s a cop show about superheroes but I’ve been following the comic since its inception. Hell, at one point it was one of the only comics I was reading after I got “too old for comics.”

Man, I’ve been waiting for this show since they shot their first pilot with Jason Patric and Lucy Punch.

And now, the first of two lawyer shows.

Daredevil_s1_Key-Art

You did know that the Daredevil’s alter ego is attorney at law Matt Murdock, right? Okay, yes, I know we still hold the Ben Affleck movie against Marvel (heck, even Ben regrets it), and so far Marvel doesn’t have a great television track record, but the comic book nerd in me is holding out hope.

And finally, that other lawyer show.

Better-Call-Saul_s1_Poster

Honestly, I’m so fucking nervous that this will suck so I’m doing everything I can to lower my expectations.

… but the early reviews are positive.

So if I’m not answering my phone, now you know why.
