    How long will he be slapped in the face with such remarks?

    I dearly wish they had made that movie, but they went a different way. It is fine and is different from other zombie/mass-infected films, but not nearly as interesting as the original premise.
    I hated that Sam (his pup) died. Didn't care about the humans or Zombies.

    The dog was the star of that movie, no question about it. Easily among the top 5 realistic dog roles ever on film.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I read I am Legend then watched the movie on a transatlantic flight while squished in a window seat. It sucked, both the seat and the movie.

    Yes, I loved the ending the book. It was such a great twist to shift your perspective about the world. A lot of great Sci-fi does that and you can see it's application in so many different PPB topics which I won't get into. Likely we could all use a really good shock to our world view every so often.

    Was just reminded of True Detective on another thread. I LOVED the first season. I never got into season two and didn't watch season three.

    Now I hear there is a new season (off shoot? Spin off?) coming soon to HBO. What do people think about seasons two and three, and has anyone got scuttlebutt on the new show?

    Just finished the second season of Slow Horses. Top notch in my book, and probably better than season one.

    I am currently watching Season 3, and so far it is up there with Season 1 (which I also LOVED). Season 2 was not even close to 1 or 3. I am happy to hear there will be a Season 4.

    For the Last of Us, I very much disliked an early choice they made for the plot that changed it greatly from the first game.

    Interesting. I'd be interested to talk more about that in PMs. It made tons of narrative sense to me. But would definitely be a huge spoiler for the show to discuss here.

    Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen A Journey, A Somg

    Just watched it on Netflix. A documentary about Cohen using the song as the focus. Well done.

    That was the most divisive moment. But there were many other pieces of the game that inflamed certain people.

    I thought it was magnificent.

    My wife and I saw "Missing" this weekend. Other than the people next to us who felt compelled to editorialize to each other, it was a mildly entertaining, even if it did have some inconsistencies. The story is told mostly through pictures and stories through one or more devices, which was something I'd never seen before, but I understand has been done before. I didn't much care for the ending, but OK. It was, as I said, mildly entertaining. I'd give it a C+. Missable, but not bad.

    I'm about half-way through the new season of Fauda and it is not disappointing.

    I tried Fauda for the first time last week. Quit after one episode - too real for me. I don't want to live the never ending cycle of violence that is the Palestine - Israel conflict. There are no heroes, no pure villains. Both sides have taken positions that are untenable to the other so they just kill each other endlessly. But it seemed to be a very well-made show if that is your cup of tea.

    Wow. Yeah. I kept hearing episode three would be intense. But I was somehow expecting a very different sort of intensity.

    It hit pretty solidly.

    I値l give 2 thumbs up the 典he Outlaws. What痴 not to like about some Brits, the cute ginger from Poldark and Christopher Walken?? It痴 on Amazon Prime and I would categorize it as a British Dramady.

    if you are more adventurous and enjoy some off-beat or art-house shows, try 溺ammals on Prime and 釘rand New Cherry Flavor on Netflix. The latter is indescribable but you値l know if your down for it after the first episode. Kathryn Keener is excellent in that one.

    Poldark rides his horse (and very adroitly) for two reasons: sex and social justice.
