Happy Halloween!

Despite a ton of traveling this month, I still managed to consume content like a post grad in the last days of their free trial. On to business.

Television
Luke Cage – This show is… um… I think it’s the weakest of the three Marvel Netflix shows… by a country mile… maybe an ocean mile.

The Good Place
Son of Zorn
The Last Man on Earth – Still manages to surprise me. Maybe the best half-hour currently airing.

Justified – Just started season 3 and man, it’s so good.

Timeless – Who doesn’t love a great time travel yarn, right?

Bob’s Burgers
Lethal Weapon – Hot damn this show is sooooo much fun.

The Exorcist – As a former Catholic I have to watch this show and it’s not half bad.

Pitch – Didn’t think I could like a show about the Padres but here I am watching every episode.

Lucifer
Conviction – I still miss Agent Carter, but this helps fill that hole.

Blindspot

Movies
Inception
X-Men: Apocalypse – Much better than I was led to believe.

Nebraska
A History of Violence – Much worse than I remember.

All is Lost – The definition of filmmaking.

Books
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – The perfect Halloween book.

Theater
Waitress – Like a musical vision of the CW. Pure pop fun.

Hamilton – There are things in life that are iterative, things that are evolutionary, and things that are revolutionary. This is revolutionary.

Comics
DC Comic’s Bombshells
Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Five – The series just wrapped a spectacular five year run.

And with that we put this October in the record books. Next month I’m rewriting a pilot, so wish me luck.

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.

lucifer_two-leads

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?

amy-winehouse_young

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?
