I think Dorohedoro could have a wider appeal similar to Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Might sound like a joke, but it's seriously a unique as hell series and up there alongside LOGH in my favorites, though obviously for different reasons.

CBS has ordered a pilot for a Silence of the Lambs spin-off called "Clarice" which, you know, focuses on Clarice Starling after the events of Silence of the Lambs. The weird thing about this is that it is exactly the same premise of a failed show that Lifetime tried to make back around the time of Hannibal.

smdh Fuller not tryna snatch up the Silence rights after the Lifetime poo poo fell through.

At any rate this will probably end up better than the Lifetime version would have, maybe? Unless it's the same crew, new network ...

I'm not sure the Lifetime show actually got anywhere because when I tried to look up information about it a couple of years later the only thing available was the initial announcement.

It clearly never went to series but I don't know if they ever actually cast anyone for Clarice.

Hi, Couch sitters. Who is watching the Critics' Choice Awards with me? Yay awards shows!

People were justifiably going gaga over Meryl Streep in Big Little Lies but Laura Dern (who just won for best actress in a movie) was the one who blew me away. To be honest I only really knew of her as "the woman in Jurassic Park" and boy was I missing out.

That's what you get for expecting anything out of fuller that isn't "actively trying to get himself fired". He makes good TV but, in the words of Chris Onstad, he navigates it with all the grace of a tapdancer going through a minefield with snow shoes on.

Hard agree, and any time I need to make myself cry I think about the Matt and Nora beach scene in the finale. That HURT.

E: This one. SO MANY SPOILERS HERE DON'T CLICK PLAY IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE LEFTOVERS YET.

I’d have to go S1 > S3 > S2, with “perfection” being the only word that does S2 justice.

My best episode that isn’t International Assassin is G’day, Melbourne.

Wasn't the Lifetime show going to be a prequel about Clarice at the FBI Academy?

I almost want to bet on them telling an even simpler story than season 2, in a more convoluted way than season 2!

But I also want it to be good b/c the incredible cast is wasted otherwise.

It’s not a TV show, it’s a movie, but given the choice between talking about stuff I watch with you guys or C:D you guys win every time.

I’m pretty sure Children of Men is one of the best movies ever made. Not only is it beautiful and have some interesting long takes, every time I watch it with someone new they always end up a bit she’ll-shocked.

I’m looking forward to season 3 though, Aaron Paul is always a plus.

There's no denying it was needlessly convoluted tho. They tried to make a season of television impossible to guess, which is, like, the opposite point of writing a mystery. You should want the reader/viewer to potentially pick up the pieces before the reveal!

e: which is precisely why the reveal in S1works so well, whether you love it or hate it. you could have been suspicious of the twist by like episode 2 just by paying attention to the set dressing/logos
