    This is very Crichton. Not knowing anything about the original source, so far I'm intrigued what direction it'll take. Especially since matters of reality and human/artificial intelligence are very near and dear to my heart. I'll stick around for a while longer.

    Maggie was 100% safe, as were Sasha, Rick, Michonne, Carl and Daryl

    I knew it was going to be Glenn but

    It's too cruel

    At least we're getting a full on hate vengeance arc for Maggie.. my poor lil angel she didn't deserve this

    I'm about 40% sure now that all the park staff are robots, too. Don't think I didn't notice you started teasing their backstories in the episode that focused on Host backstories, show, I got your number.

    I just finished watching a pretty interesting historical drama called Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter. It takes place in Berlin and the Eastern Front during WW2, following five friends who take different paths through the war, from 1941 to the end. Good drama and acting, and I quite liked the characters and how they were portrayed; I'm not sure about the historical accuracy, though, since WW2 isn't exactly my forte. I enjoyed it, though it's depressing throughout. I'm not sure if 3 episodes really does the subject justice, though - it wouldn't have worked as a longer series, but 5 or so would help prevent the narrative from jumping around too much and would make the scale of it feel less small.

    From what I've read, one criticism is that there's no mention of concentration camps, but I don't really agree with that. Just because it's a show about Germany in WW2 doesn't mean it should be an obligation to write in the specific details of the Holocaust. Throughout the series there are slight references to concentration camps, but only what realistically fits within the framing of the narrative. Giving a decent amount of screen time to show the horrors of the concentration camps would ultimately take away from the focus on the individual characters while also making this Yet Another Holocaust Story. Not a bad thing fundamentally, but just not what this particular show is going for.

    No, but I'm excited to see where this hyperintelligent hooker plot is going. Mew knows what I'm talking about.

    It's old news, but my girlfriend just turned me on to Hannibal. We are halfway through season one (of three), and I am hooked like nothing I have ever seen before.

    Half the time, it's like a car crash. It's so morbid, but I just can't look away.

    I'm catching up on TWD and Tara's solo ep was the first to make me bawl since the season's opener.. I can't believe they did another fakeout, where the fuck is Heath???

    Also, Cindy's a cutie. It's a shame she's never going to show up again

    Anybody been watching BBC's Dirk Gently? A pretty wild detective romp with some of the most bizarre characters and plot-twists I've seen in a while (at least in western media). Reminded me a lot of Occultic;Nine when I first started watching it actually, with the gristly murders, tangled plot featuring tons of quirky characters and fantastical elements.
