    The James Bond Franchise

    SPECTRE was fine, but for me, it suffered by coming immediately after Skyfall.

    S04.E14: Can't Unring That Bell

    Aside from it being dramatic shorthand to show Will countertransferring his guilt over the gunshot boy, I THINK what they were going for was Will saying that they were attempting to keep his brain oxygenated to buy time to restore a rhythm. Which is the general goal of CPR, but he was first PEA (Pulseless Electrical Activity, where the heart fires but doesn't actually beat) and then asystole (nothing happening at all), which are extremely difficult to recover from. Especially since they only gave on amp of epi that I counted. I was honestly utterly confused by that entire subplot. I often hate the way medical dramas demonstrate CPR. For one thing, it doesn't work nearly as well as shows would have you believe. For another, it's so much more violent than they depict. Credit at least for remembering that you can't shock either PEA or asystole.

    Ben Whishaw would have been much better. And, y'know, actually gay.

    UO: Prior to Fury Road, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome was the best of that series.

    Doom Patrol

    I think the heavier mood fits the source material better. I mean, the classic 60s Doom Patrol was all about angst. All of them broke my heart, but Larry's story, about having always felt like a monster because his orientation, spoke the most to me personally.

    Yeah, that makes DC Universe worth paying for.

    S02.E05: Saints of Imperfection

    You have to love that Michelle Yeoh can make something as simple as eating an apple menacing. I do also like that despite everything, she still seems to care about Michael. In her own twisted way, at least. I think there's something wonderful in the Valentine's Day episode being in large part about two halves of a gay couple finding each other across universes. And I guess we finally got confirmation that they're actually married, because Michael's VO used "widower" for Paul when talking about labels. I also loved Pike's line to Leland about thinking he was fighting "alligators" on Cestus 3.

    S01.E13: The Blues

    For me, it was the tight shots of her from the chest up. But from an article I found online, she apparently announced that she was expecting in the fall and gave the due date as "late winter." I wonder how long ago these episodes were filmed. I know there were some outdoor scenes, but I didn't notice any fogging breath. Then again, it's been a fairly warm winter in NYC.

    Nhan is just pure competence. That's a nice trait to have in a security chief.

    S01.E13: The Blues

    Apparently, the show was renewed a few days ago. Is this how the actress who plays Bloom is taking maternity leave?

    S04.E13: Ghosts In The Attic

    If nothing else, we got Patti Murin back as Nina for a scene. I guess she had a week off from Frozen. Wish it could have been in service of a better episode.

    Forget everything else, Into the Spider-Verse is just cleaning up. Good for them.

    Shaft (2019)

    Prior to seeing the trailer, I would have been "Do we really need another Shaft reboot?" After seeing the trailer, I'm like "Yes, we do."
