Love the Loki show. More twists and turns than a pretzel with Tourette's.

Currently watching the 3 Mobile Suit Gundam movies on Netflix, and will start MSG Char's Counterattack when done.  I'm starting to click with some presumed Easter Eggs shown in Gundam Unicorn UC 96.

Remember Ted Baxter, the incompetent news anchor for WJM on the old Mary Tyler Moore Show?  I took a peek at an episode last night on Hulu, and couldn't help but think that Ted Baxter reminds me of Donald Trump.  He looks like he could have been his father way back then.  Like Trump, he's incapable of logical reasoning, but more harmless and without the vitriol.  It was Episode 2 of the first season.  The episode is about something else, but Baxter appears toward the end and fully develops his character for the rest of the seasons.

I saw a behind the scenes of the writers' room and they essentially used Dan Harmond's story circle plot.  Now I kinda feel cheated because while those plots are entertaining, they're very cyclical and almost static - the characters basically end up where they started.  I prefer characters to change even more than that and be unable to return to the previous status quo.

I went into that with zero context, and that was a trip lol.

Start with the pilot episode. For some reason, these guys name the second episode "episode 1," so it's a little confusing. The pilot is what you need for the context.

the gf and i watched 'the handmaid's tale's first episode.
She'd wanted to see it for a while.
I've heard many great things.
But I must admit. It does not have me hooked yet.

Watched the first three episodes of Marvel's "What-If" series. The second episode had me thinking about this meme.

Spoilers for if you haven't seen it yet.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ten new episodes of Dexter will return to Showtime in November. Apparently fans felt like there was not enough closure to the original series.  I thought the conclusion was fine.  Sure it left everyone hanging, but that's not unusual.  In fact, every damn episode left me hanging.

Don’t know if this has been mentioned yet, and there’s over 1200 entries on this thread that I don’t have time to read, but I definitely recommend The Leftovers (HBO) if you haven’t seen it. It runs 3 seasons and deals with how humanity survives after the “sudden departure” makes 2% of the world’s population mysteriously disappear. Stars Justin Theroux, Amy Breneman, Christopher Excleston and Carrie Coon. Written by Damon Lindelof (Lost) based on a book by Tom Parotta with many great directors including Mimi Leder.  Lots of puzzling stories but they definitely pay off.
