The Strain - Series Finale

Aired tonight. A satisfying conclusion. This was a fun series with a clever twist on the vampire theme.

Re: Rex Reed On "Mother"

Rex Reed hated it? I'll be sure to put it on my "Must See" list now!

Reed is an idiot and a really, really bad film critic.

Re: The Sinner

BTW, this does look like an interesting series. Might be worth a marathon when it's done.

Re: The Sinner

Moretz is a fine actress and Peirce a fine director but the remake couldn't hold a candle to the original, which is one of the great horror films.

Re: The Sinner

but he loved Dolores Clayborn, Misery, Shawshank and Green Mile

He didn't mention Carrie? That's the best of them all.

Re: GoT 8/27/17

I'm still cogitating about what Tyrion's expression outside the love cabin meant.

Watch the way he bows his head and walks away. He's in love with her. He knows nothing will ever come of it, which is why he's never [more]

Re: GoT Season 7 Question

I don't know if I'd say abbreviated, exactly, but it doesn't feel like it had as much depth or intrigue as some of the earlier seasons. It's still a grand spectacle, but the story moved along pretty fast this season. It's [more]

So, what, we'll have a better idea late Sat, early Sun of how we're going to be affected by this monstrosity?

Re: Designated Survivor

I agree with dsbrady "For me, it's a show that doesn't know what it wants to be".

I think that old Donny and Marie song sums it up best: "It's a little bit 24, and a little bit The West Wing."

GoT Season 7 Question

So I was going to hold off watching season 7, wait until next year and watch the final two seasons together, but hell, I don't think I can resist marathoning it this weekend. After all, this is Game of Friggin' Thrones we're talking about [more]

Designated Survivor

I'm a couple of eps into season one, this may actually be watchable. It's an interesting premise, a political nobody becoming POTUS during a time of crisis. It has potential for both WH drama and as a conspiracy thriller. Sutherland was very [more]

RIP Jerry Lewis

Hey, laaaady!

He was kind of a jerk in real life but he was fine comedian and gave a great dramatic performance in "King of Comedy".

King Charles III

Caught this on Masterpiece Theater, a fictional account of Prince Charles becoming king following the death of his mum, with the dialogue being primarily blank verse with some rhyming couplets, a la Shakespeare. The themes are similar to the [more]

House of Cards - Season 5

Actually I can't comment on season 5 because I only made it about 15 mins into the first ep. I've found this show increasingly difficult to keep watching each successive season and I realized a few mins into this episode that I really [more]

Re: Multi-compartment Salad Container?
