  1. Didn't they have fire damage at one point? Cooking in a shelter seems like a way to attract predators.
  2. I’ve always thought the fire inside was risky. Didn’t the couple who built a cabin have a fire? Good to see someone get some rabbits. There is so little meat in a squirrel. It seems like trapping, hunting and fishing are all viable options this year. It’s a little more interesting. I like Ray but he might be a bit fragile based on those tears. Hopefully it was cathartic, not foreshadowing. I’m not always wild about the edits but it seems to be much less navel gazing about missing family this year.
  3. A million thoughts: The lake would have Great Lake trout but they are generally a deep water fish. At my cottage we caught them in 250 feet of water with lead core line. Pike and bass in the bays. That cut was deep, but small and easy to clean. She overreacted but including it in the show was a little lame. Donny shouldn’t have gone on the show and the producers shouldn’t have taken him. His shelter really did look good, and insulation will be critical I agree tha5 he should have boiled or poached his catch. Would have liked to see more of people shelter building or strategizing catching big game. I’m finding this season a little tougher to get into. The presentation of the participants seems more disjointed. I do feel like they have some really capable contestants. Finally, they need to get rid of the corny foreshadowing of the rescue boat, and replaying the last 15 seconds before commercial after commercial. It’s outdated.
  4. I just watched last night so I’ll dump a bunch of thoughts. Taking a gill net is smart, but not at the expense of the ferro. He will be under pressure to keep that fire smouldering. If he has to light a fire under duress it will be very hard. Definitely a season for a small shelter. I thought Tim was pretty cocky. Reminded me of Florida guy who nearly cried first night in season 1. I do sympathize that the filming creates a distraction. Of the people we met last night nobody seemed “goofy”. Looks primed to be a solid season.
  5. Well stated. I used to hate Matthew Weiner explaining Mad Men episodes. It always seemed like backfilling. Im happy to talk about songs, music, shows, books etc. But I don’t want the artist explaining them.
  6. I would assume you need some sort of ID when you deliver a child at the hospital, unless they did that off the grid as well. I’m not sure about registering Lucy’s birth as well. YMMV, but the first few episodes I thought she was as sexy as anyone I’ve ever seen on screen. After about 5 episodes they were reminding me of my own exhausting and failed relationships and my feelings had changed. That character arc may actually be a credit to the show. Lust is easy, marriage is work.
  7. I didn’t have a problem with Hayes not reading the book. It’s a slight stretch, but that book basically cost him his career. His wife worked him for information, compromising his ethics, and it was all laid out in black and white. It was her greatest achievement and his cross to bear. I’m not sure she was appreciative of the sacrifice.
  8. I’m not sure that Julie dying as the nuns said wasn’t a more fitting ending.
  9. The Nebraska ring alluded to relates to the Johnny Gosch case I believe. His disappearance has fuelled several wild theories. This season reminds me of the occasional mystery novel I read. They don’t want you guessing the plot so they make it convoluted beyond reason.
  10. The characters and acting are great, but I’m finding the story a little over cooked. I was actually quite bored during the first half of this episode.
  11. As much as I’m enjoying the acting, I’m getting a little bored. I’m generally okay with slower moving shows like Saul and The Americans. I’m finding that with three timelines there are too many hints/loose ends/teases. For me, it’s overweighted on style over substance. I’m not really that compelled by the mystery of the kids Great finish with Zevon though.
  12. Pretty sure Amelia told Hays that she said “ex-husband” to “work” the agent. It jarred me at the time because I thought maybe they had actually been divorced. She really is always playing an angle. Boozed up mom was not wrong in that. In the task force meeting they said O’Brien briefly resurfaced, then disappeared again. I’m wondering if the mother’s guilt is from knowing that the uncle/cousin was abusing the daughter. I liked this episode. Moved the plot along, some character development, and not much mystical stuff. Also for the record, 1990 Amelia is an absolute smokeshow.
  13. As I recall it wasn’t just Satanic, but their was a fear that D&D could take over your life. I think there was a movie about it.
  14. Yes that is West/Dorff. I can see how you missed the connection. It’s not obvious. You almost have to know the actor by sight.
  15. Dorff’s 80s look isn’t the greatest. He reminds me of a detective in a sketch comedy show, or maybe a flashback scene on something like Brooklyn 99. I’m enjoying the show, particularly the characters and the setting. I do find the dialogue a little hard to follow, on both an audible level and content. It’s borderline laborious to follow. I can’t say I’m captivated by the plot at this point. I found season 1 a little overlooked in that regard, but with great acting and compelling dialogue. For me, it was more sizzle than steak. Right now, the mystery of 1990 Julie is strongly holding my interest. The creep factor of the dolls etc. is, to me, a little far fetched.
