  1. This documentary has a surreal feel to it, like a strange time capsule. The story takes place over forty years ago and can almost feel like a long away history tale and yet his actual trial is occurring right now. Seeing him with the transparent Covid visor in the courtroom gave me such a jolt. Also its so sad that Michelle McNamara did not live to see his capture and trial.
  2. There is another, older, interesting connection: Ethan Peck grandfather (Gregory Peck) played a journalist who poses as a Jew to research an exposé on the widespread distrust and dislike of Jews in the 1947 movie Gentleman's Agreement.
  3. Yes, but what I found very interesting, and a little alarming, is that they specifically showed that the reconstructed Kovacs stack had some of the alien left in it. They actually zeroed in on it at the last moment. This makes sense as when Poe backed him up they were already joint but it makes for a whole lot of trouble if they go for season 3:).
  4. You can watch him on his YouTube channel. It has clips of each week's main subject posted the following day. This week it covers the whole show (https://www.youtube.com/user/LastWeekTonight)
  5. what I didn't get is: as the original "offender" was still alive and living in the same place, why didn't Fallon go after him instead of looking for surrogates?
  6. The police already know that Endicott's lab falsified Malcolm DNA evidence (and many others), so his case is no longer an issue. Also, with Jessica's phone still recording, Endicott taunts and Ainsley crazed screams during her attack can be heard and make it a quite convincingly a case of temporary insanity.
  7. Every time I get annoyed and disgusted by him, see him I have to remind myself of all other amazing complex parts he played. )
  8. I was hoping Mia's flashback will reveal/explain the source of her anger but it actually did not.
  9. Actually, I think it was Mike who bugged it and this was how he knew to follow Saul in case he got into trouble. Mike has done this in the past (I don't remember when but I clearly remember him doing it.
  10. Not exactly a plot hole but very jarring. When describing perjury to the clearly quite naive young man, and knowing that he is probably the killer, shouldn't he also have mentioned the option of pleading the fifth? or the judge should have when it was clear he was actually being accused of murder. It felt like a police interrogation without a Miranda warning and a lawyer present. Whenever I see this kind of courtroom confessions of clueless witnesses, I feel like the lawyers are circumventing the proper police arrest procedures. Especially as a real hardened criminal will either lie or know his right to plead the fifth.

    S01.E06: Episode 6

    Good catch !
  12. I would like to give a shout-out to Ben Browder in this episode. He managed to make the hostage taking scenes intense enough to make the whole episode vibrate. He has only done bit parts in the last ten years after Farscape and Stargate which I have been wondering about.
  13. It looks like the writer is just not interested in the male characters apart from what is needed to highlight the female characters behavior. They are almost disposable place markers, which in the case of Joshua Jackson is criminal (although he squeezes every drop from each reaction he is allowed to have 🙂). I realize that this is a female centered story and all the people responsible for creating it are women, but it does the series a disservice being so tilted.
  14. Ok but I feel like Elena’s motivations are easier to see in the story. I don’t agree with them but I understand them. Mia’s are harder to understand for me. She’s clearly living a life where she has to keep moving yet she inserts herself into this situation. She doesn’t like Elena but she accepts a job working there to keep an eye on Pearl. She’s clearly the catalyst and that makes sense for the story to happen. But as a character, I don’t get it. Its hard to fully understand Mia because this is how she was written. Full of secrets in her past that are only hinted at but never explained. Her actions, towards almost everyone, seem to be motivated more by her past experiences than by what the situation actually calls for. Even Bebe said that she was better off not knowing and later nearly accepted that her daughter may be better off with the adopting parents but Mia pushed her really hard to fight them. The same is true with her behavior towards Pearl, accepting that Izzy finds it easier to communicate with her but not that pearl can honestly find it easier to communicate with Elena. Everything is viewed thru the filtered glasses of her own past traumas that are never explained, just hinted at. Still I don't think we are meant to blindly root for her because of it.
