Putting aside my pointless nitpicking, hey, for all the The Good Lord Bird fans out there, I spotted a wild Onion on last nights Snowfall. Apparantly he's going to be in two episodes (although he didn't even get a line in this episode)

This fistfight scene that closes out episode 3 of The Knick is so gorgeous and stylised and it literally comes out of nowhere what the gently caress Soderbergh owns so much

I don't know if the whole show is shot handheld, but tons of it is and Soderberg knows how to use that method so well.

Algernon's story arc is so compelling and Holland's performance is so good, the show would be well worth it if it was all him. Not to knock Clive Owen who kills it, but Holland's on another level.

Yeah, its a gorgeous show. I started watching it yesterday after all the recent chatter about it, and am really enjoying it. The material is heavy and I can see why it didn't attract a huge crowd of weekly viewers, especially with the first scene in the pilot.

Ginny and Georgia is a really fun and clever show.

Only three episodes in, but I'm super hooked and all the characters are very interesting and seem to have some serious depth.

I gave it a go based on that post. It's sort of like a contemporary Gilmour Girls but replace "super-privileged background" with "chequered past" - at least that's what I think the show is going for based on the Gilmour Girls reference in the pilot. I'm enjoying it and although I haven't got to that bit yet none of the teen dialogue has caused me to want to stop watching; some of it is even quite funny. I've though "nobody talks like that" a few times but then, I'm in my 40s in the UK and as such I have absolutely no idea how teenagers here, nevermind ones in the US, speak. So maybe they do!

What year are we in with Better Call Saul anyway? Assume the start of Breaking Bad is 2008, aren't we still several years away from 2008? This season could be a mess with the amount of time jumps we're probably going to have.

late to the party but god drat Watchmen episode 6 is like art/masterpiece. The closest thing I can think of is the dream episode in season 2 of The Leftovers. Damon Lindelof is really obsessed with uniforms defining you.

BCS Season 1 started May 2002. By the end of Season 5, we're in June 2004.

Breaking Bad is from 2008 to 2010.

Gene's events are happening sometime in 2012.

They're gonna have to catch up and also finish/resolve Gene's storyline.

A lot of people have always assumed that the show will reach or overlap with Breaking Bad but really at this point there's not much of anything to indicate that's the case.

There was that one scene set during Breaking Bad, so I can see why people might expect more but I personally don't buy that we'll get much if anything.

I just finished the season recently as well and agree with all of this. I also really loved episode 8 and the way it was set up. I just really enjoyed the whole season overall - having never read the comics and remembering nothing about the movie, I thought the entire season was excellent and super compelling from the start. It's great to have a single season story for a show as well.

Watchmen was great and it was so rewarding watching reality just continually shut down the people who spent the entire show swearing that it was objectively terrible, first with it sweeping the emmys and then the entire past year proving it right on every front.

I wish more people would have taken it as an object lesson against dismissing media you haven't actually seen just because a small handful of weirdos with an ideological axe to grind say it had bad politics, but alas.

I think the only "problem" I have with Watchmen is that it's really hard to recommend to someone who hasn't read the source material. It does its own thing, but large swaths of it just wouldn't make sense otherwise. They'd either have to invest the time to read 12 issues of a 1986 comic book series, or watch a just-OK movie adaptation with a really truncated version of events and a different ending. A catch-up special or "episode zero" airing before the show would've been a good idea. I even had to look up a refresher because it had been years since I'd read it.

Whilst I can't recall them ever saying it, I just figured that seeing Saul doesn't appear til like the end of Season 2 we'd get a ton of the side by side timeline stuff from what was happening in the first 1.5 seasons in the lead up to his introduction.

My wife never read the comic or saw the movie, and even though she was really skeptical, even after the first episode, she ended up really loving the TV show and understanding everything set out and referred to within the show.
