    All Episodes Talk: The Brownstone

    Wasn't sure where to put this, but I've been rewatching the series on Hulu, and noticed that Oedker pops up multiple times as the fictional search engine. I wonder at what point they decided to introduce Odin as the man behind it. Also, Seasons 1-4 have a pretty strong character arc/progression for the main too. I was pleasantly surprised on the rewatch.

    S05.E10: Night and the Zombie City

    <weird thought> If a human cannibal lived in Seattle, would he or she take this opportunity to pretend to be a zombie and eat brains? </weird thought>

    S07.E08: Miss Understood

    I disagree. While not obsessed in a romantic sense, she's fixated on him. She spent three years in prison because of him, and right after getting out she showed up with a new lie to get his attention. Further, she has created at least one fantasy about him as her father. This may have been shared to taunt Watson, but it is a story that she came up with, and had in mind. She also said she'd been researching him.

    A relationship would be squicky for me. I see this as gauging her potential as ally or enemy. She's no Moriarty, but I'd also say she's no Kitty.

    S06.E09: Collision Course (Part II)

    This show managed to pull all those disparate plotlines into a good episode. I enjoyed it all. I'm with all of you, Davis is possessed. I knew something was going to happen as soon as he agreed to go after Izel with Jaco. At least he seems to be alive...? Under these circumstances I don't buy May shooting Sarge. Something else is at play, whether she's being mind controlled, or Izel somehow assumed her form. I feel like Sarge still has a role to play, so I wonder how he survives this. Izel said he never had any memories, which makes me think again that he's a clone. Perhaps Coulson left some DNA behind on the blue planet when they went to rescue Simmons, and someone decided to use it. I was glad they got to take a breath and celebrate, even if doom is lurking once again. He handed her a Zima, which had to have been gotten for him by Deke. I think he needed some real beer to get rid of the taste.

    I just finished rewatching the fourth season on Hulu, so had a recent refresher on Cassie. Her first episode was okay, but she was already an experienced con artist and suspected murderer. I can buy her being fascinated with Sherlock, but I don't see him developing an emotional connection with her this quickly. She may have the potential to reform, but I don't see him taking her on as a project. Obsession is a bad foundation for a mentor/mentee relationship. I could see him finding someone else to be her mentor.

    Bob really enjoyed The Strain.

    Good for Candy. I've wanted her to get one over on Blaine. Or, you know, shoot him. I thought the private eye subplot was a bit meh. I wish they had desaturated only the scenes that Liv was in. Doing it everywhere made the show look dull, and it wasn't amusing. I'm glad they didn't drag out the reveal about Bob to Liv. Ravi should have known better to show his cure cards to Bob.

    S07.E07: From Russia with Drugs

    I was also surprised by the B plot. This was more subtle on the topic than some shows I've seen. Dwyer wasn't monstrous. I liked him. However, a boss shouldn't objectify his or her subordinate. He did the wrong thing, and it appears to be a pattern. I've known guys in his age group who make an effort to change their jokes and behavior, but slip up occasionally. I've known others who couldn't care less, and think others are too sensitive. I have more respect for the former because they are thinking about how they make other people feel.

    S03.E02: Chapter Two: The Mall Rats

    I imagine for bigger cities malls came earlier. For smaller towns, they might not have gotten a mall until they reached a certain size. My local mall was so 1980s that it had pink and teal tile. My aunt lived in a rural town of about 9,000 people, and it was a really big deal when they got a Walmart. There was a grand opening party with speeches.

    Anticipation For Dracula (2019): Fangs To Look Forward To?

    I think there is room for a genuine horror adaptation of the book, but that would require Dracula to be portrayed as a disturbing villain instead of a romantic anti-hero. It seems unlikely this will break the romantic anti-hero trend.

    S03.E04: Chapter Four: The Sauna Test

    Regarding Erica, the points about her being like an 80s sitcom child are good ones. Actually, she plays a little bit into the trope of introducing a younger family member when the original kids get older. At the same time, I think her behavior this season is similar to what it was last season in her interaction with Lucas. However, now she's older, and she's interacting more with non-family. She's at the borderline between child and teen where what was cute, and endearing, and encouraged in a child is obnoxious and off-putting in a teen (or preteen). She can still get what she wants by force of will and cuteness right now, but she'll have to adjust as she gets older.

    S03.E08: Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt

    Since Mike is going to visit them for Thanksgiving, the Byers are probably moving to a larger city in Indiana, like Fort Wayne or Indianapolis. They could move up towards Chicago, and if so that could bring Kali back into the plot. As far as caring for Eleven, it's possible that Hopper left a little money behind, in addition to his house and the property in the woods. Jane is his legal heir, and if Dr. Owens was willing to help, they could probably have put Joyce in charge of the assets. It wouldn't be much but it could be enough to help. And I'm sure Jonathan's paycheck mostly goes to his mother.

    Starcourt could be the first big mall in the county. If so, it could be a regional draw, especially during the summer. It could be part of the Mid-Western setting with newer styles coming in later than at the coast. Personally I remember a lot of bowl cuts through to the early 90s, especially on younger boys.

    I did notice that they went from killing monsters in previous seasons to killing humans in this one. A lot of humans, actually. When El threw that car at those four guys I was startled. When he used the rotating center section of the machine to hit the Russian, he damaged it, and it started arcing across the stairway. He couldn't make it through without being electrocuted. ETA: Also, I realized we didn't see the nail bat this year.
