  1. I enjoyed Safe and The Five (though found the endings of both a bit disappointing), so I'm really looking forward to the newest Harlan Coben adaptation coming up on Netflix. I haven't read The Stranger, but the premise seems interesting. Plus it stars Richard Armitage, which means I'll stick with it even if I don't like anything else about the series.
  2. Pam Grier and Robert Forster in Jackie Brown. I saw the movie when it first came out and never got around to rewatching it, but I still remember how great their chemistry was.
  3. Unrelated to Hannibal, but I thought it was interesting that they're still trying to get more mileage out of the IP: CBS says hello to Clarice, a Silence Of The Lambs sequel series Coincidentally, I've been rewatching the show this weekend. It's one of the few--maybe the only--series that I've ever rewatched start to finish multiple times. It never gets old.
  4. She leaves the show relatively early in its run (season 8 maybe?). I prefer the later seasons because I find Amanda Burton mildly irritating. The show can sometimes be quite gory. Even as a long-time viewer, I was surprised by a few bits in the latest episode.
  5. The newest season of Silent Witness started on Britbox. The show doesn't seem to get talked about much, especially considering how long it's been on (this is season 23!). Admittedly, it's not great, but I enjoy it.
  6. I was listening to a recent episode of the How Did This Get Made podcast and was surprised to hear Jason Mantzoukas say that this is one of the movies he likes to watch every holiday season. Maybe he likes it ironically, but he didn't elaborate so now I'll always wonder...
  7. I didn't know much about the show, but really enjoyed the pilot. The cast is good across the board. I was impressed by how well they pulled off some clunky material. And even though he didn't do much here, I was especially happy to see Tate Ellington (The Mindy Project, Quantico). The title is interesting. I guess they wanted the initial name recognition of The Bone Collector while still leaving room to change up the show's focus when they wrap up that plot.
  8. Seeing Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle pop back up on Netflix has reminded me of the scene where Kumar is about to get Harold out of jail when he's distracted by a big bag of weed. Kumar then imagines a whole relationship with the bag from the sweet days of courtship to their troubled married life. It still ranks high in the list of movie scenes that made me laugh hardest.
  9. I think his face looks a little fuller than it did a few years ago, but eh. I may be biased, though, because I really like Pedro Pascal. I appreciated that they didn't try to glam him up for the reveal. I imagine that's how someone would look when they've been stuck in a full helmet for who knows how long and then getting knocked around some.
  10. The Wikipedia article for the episode seems pretty thorough and doesn't mention that, though that doesn't rule out the possibility of course. It does say they were inspired in part by Sleuth and The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover if that helps.
  11. I didn't like that Mando referred to Baby Yoda as "that thing" when talking to the Armorer. I don't think his character would've reacted that way at this point in the show.
  12. I don't know if I liked it, but I'm glad I saw it. Willem Dafoe's 'Hark!' monologue is amazing:
  13. I was surprised by how many downbeat moments there were: Kuiil's lonely grave, IG-11's sacrifice (and his exchange with Mando about recognizing sadness in his voice), the longer flashback of the attack on Mando's childhood home, and the pile of Beskar with only the armorer left to take care of it. I was even bummed out by Cara shooting the droid who was humming while obliviously steering them into an ambush. But those were balanced out by a lot of fantastic scenes that have already been mentioned. I was especially happy to see the armorer whack all those Stormtroopers since it means we may see her again. I love the voice actor for that character. Speaking of, I only found out by reading about it later that Adam Pally and Jason Sudeikis provided the voices for the 2 Stormtroopers who hit Baby Yoda. I've had issues with this season--and even with this episode--but ultimately found the finale very satisfying. The wait for the next season would've been torturous if Mando and Baby Yoda hadn't ended this one together.
  14. That's what I do. I'll probably switch when Acorn gets the next season of Queens of Mystery.
  15. I'm in the US and watched it on BritBox, which has all of the seasons available to stream.
