    General True Crime Shows

    ID is really hyping their upcoming show about the Atlanta Child Murders, and I worry that they will try to exonerate Wayne Williams for at least some of the killings. There is not a single piece of evidence, after 40 years and many DNA tests, that does that. But there are so many people who desperately want to blame the murders on the police or “the Klan” or some other phantom for political reasons.

    When Ezekiel said “it feels like we’re not losing anymore” I half expected an actual anvil to fall from the sky onto him.

    S09.E09: Adaptation

    I didn’t mind the Negan’s Big Adventure parts. I found them more interesting than The Four New Buffoons—how on earth have they survived the ZA to this point?—or the painfully soapy Eugene/Rosita story. “Sands through the hourglass” indeed. I must confess I find the Negan/Judith scenes as charming as the writers hoped they’d be. *hides*

    The Afterschool Special part was hard to sit through.

    Then and Now: Actors (and their Voices) in Commercials

    I like Anna Kendrick but I’m not sure what the marketing advantage of making her so nasty on the Hilton commercials is.

    S03. E04. Justice for Cable

    Whenever this show is not about Bull manipulating a jury it feels contrived to me.

    S09.E01: A New Beginning.

    Regarding the contrived “the Sanctuary is dependent on the other communities because crops won’t grow there” plot point, I kept wanting to yell the (slightly paraphrased) Sam Kinison line at the Sanctuary people: “HEY GUYS, WHY DON’T YOU MOVE TO WHERE THE FOOD GROWS?”

    But this is the Dick Wolf alternate universe where dog-fighting matches somehow take place in fancy Manhattan high-rises inhabited by wealthy white stockbrokers (an actual L&O episode). Nothing, no matter how bizarre, surprises me in Dick-Wolf-land.

    S04.E09: Wiedersehen

    It is Werner's "Great Escape". In the move, "The Great Escape", most of the escapees died. I think only one of the escapees lived. Most of the rest were hunted down and killed. IIRC, Steve McQueen's character was recaptured and then shot. It has been so long since I have seen the movie, my memory isn't very good. For what it’s worth, the “good-guy” guard in that movie was named Werner.

    S04.E09: Wiedersehen

    Episode title was interesting: “Wiedersehen” rather than “Auf Wiedersehen”. Literally “to see again” rather than “Until we see [each other] again” (aka goodbye). Lalo’s visit reinvigorates Hector, who now sees the world again.

    S04.E15: I Lose People...

    I really do like the new cast—they are tremendously fun compared to Madison The Perfect and Nick The Mopey et al. I like that they care about each other so much, even if it’s a little contrived. I just wish they had better villains than the snooze-worthy Vultures and the awful one-note Martha.

    S04.E07: Something Stupid

    Mesa Verde = “green table”. The idea of MV playing pool with their assets isn’t too much of a stretch, I hope.

    Mayans MC

    Was that the bad guy from Apocalypto (one of my favorite movies) playing one of the Mayans? Nice meta if so.

    S04.E05: Quite A Ride

    A thoroughly entertaining episode with lots of classic Jimmy/Saul antics. Kim with the O BABY WHAT IS YOU DOING moment with her passive aggressive attempt to get herself fired from MV. Not sure why she’s doing that. Loved the symbolism of Saul literally slicing up/gutting the law in the flash forward. Why was the first SuperLab architect rejected?
