Between a Pathfinder game and packing for DragonCon, I watched:

All kinds of different Death Note. Never even got to the usual retro
Sunday stuff. Next up, the 2016 live action Japanese sequel.

But it was the extra-long ep of The Love Boat with the dog show!

The DVR should have it, although it has an annoying habit of only
getting the first hour of the 90 minute episodes ...

I think you mean the 2006 movie. It's not a sequel. But they did make a
sequel to it in 2008, "L: Change the World." You'll have to rent the
disc from Netflix. But if you like the live action version, it's well
worth it. And you get to see the L-mobile. :-)


I watched:


Blood Drive - "Rise of the Primo" - I think this was already covered.


Halt and Catch Fire - "Miscellaneous" - Already summarized by Jim.


Game of Thrones - "The Dragon and the Wolf" - Epic Season Finale! All
the warring factions meet to discuss a truce so they can join forces
against the dead. But Cersei being Cersei can't help but plot to use
the situation to her advantage. The Stark sisters show off how good
they have become at playing the Game of Thrones. And the Knight King
shows off a new pet.


Invaders From Mars (blu-ray) 1986 Tobe Hooper remake of the classic 50s
movie. A young boy (Hunter Carson ) discovers Martians have invaded
just down the road from his house and have taken over his parents and
school teacher. His only hope is getting the school nurse (played by
Hunter's real life mother Karen Black) and army to come save the day.
It was slightly above background noise as I watched with the commentary
track on.


I forgot to mention from the other day I also watched the 2014 RoboCop
reboot. It's OK, I guess. I didn't think it was a bad movie, it just
never rises above mediocre. It hits the same beats as the original with
cop turned into machine, updated for modern time, but it lacks the same
edge that made the original great.

No sir. There are 2 2006 live action Japanese movies (watched 'em both
last night), a 2008 spin off about L (got it but haven't watched it
yet), and a 2016 Japanese live action sequel that takes place 10 years
later - that I have in Japanese audio with English subs, but the subs
are fubar.

I watched Lifeforce a few years ago so that's already scratched off the
list. But I have Salem's Lot on blu-ray which I never got around to
watching. So I *might* watch that. At least it's on my radar again.
And I recently picked up the two new collector's editions of Poltergeist
2 & 3. So I'll be rewatching the first one before I dive into those
two. The currently plan is to wait for closer to Halloween and I'll
probably stick with that plan. Maybe shoehorn in Salem's Lot too. But
my Halloween movie watching list is getting ridiculously long this year.
Over the past year I picked up a *lot* of horror flicks I've been
holding off until Halloween to watch and that list of flicks is now
ridiculously long. :-/

it didn't really happen that way at all.

Go to The Amazon and look up Death Note. They have all kinds of Death
Notebooks ostensively for Cosplay (do we really want these people
cosplaying?) including little lockets with a scrap of Death Note paper
in them so you can write down your friends names and kill them at
recess, which a friend of mine points out would get you expelled from
school in America.

Hopefully soon. It's goodlooking, like an actual movie, and not the
1980s British TV show the 2006 movies look like. :D

I have both Salem's Lots on my cloud. IIRC the remake was pretty
annoying. I like the original, except for the casting of the vampire
and his major domo; they should have kept closer to the source and
reversed those actors. James Mason as the king vampire! How awesome
sauce drenched would *that* be? Also they really shouldn't have exactly
copied the makeup job from Nosferatu ...

Which Poltergeist is it where they spend an entire reel with no other
dialog than the various characters taking turns yelling CAROL ANN!?!?!?

Yeah, there was no Nosferatu-like creature in the book. Not sure why they
decided to go that route.

Well, on Sunday I watched 'How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town' (Netflix
disc rental).

First, let me get this out of the way. WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME JEWEL
STAITE WAS CROWDFUNDING AN ORGY!!!??? I could have scrapped together
some money for that. :P

More seriously this was an at least partially crowdfunded Canadian indie
movie. Despite the titillating title it was almost Ian safe, only one
brief female topless shot and some mostly male butt crack. Netflix
categorizes it as a romantic comedy but I consider it a "cringe comedy".
Too many people doing things so stupid you cringe in embarrassment. I
actually had to stop the movie for a few minutes a couple times to
de-cringe. I wanted to smack a couple characters for stupidity and
smack down one for being such a raging bitch.

The production was good and I didn't have a problem with the acting.
And there was real comedy potential in the idea of trying to get a group
of small town prudes to unclench enough to have sex even if they were
trying to have an orgy for all the wrong reasons. But something just
didn't hit the mark. I want to like this movie more than I actually do.

Word is that the actors and the cast all had a blast getting the whole

I was reading on another board what I thought was a joke about Bronn
(Jerome Flynn) promptly leaving when Cersei (Lena Headey) arrived
because they are contractual prohibited from being on the set together.
At first I laughed it off as a joke but something prompted me to check
it out anyway. Apparently the two are actually on the outs and will not
film together. At least that's what Wikipedia says.

The HBO video that I saw of them putting together those group scenes
from the season finale had footage of all of the actors there, on set
and in costume. And Headley and Flynn were both there, laughing and
enjoying themselves. Not arm in arm, or anything, but enough that I'm
gonna call the Telegraph piece a bit of exaggeration, at the very least.

I'll wait for more info down the road.

What did you watch?
Mostly, I finished off...:

Jessica Jones (The Netflix) - This can be considered my first "binge",
as I got through the last 4 episodes of this in a single day.
This generally ended satisfactorily. I'm guessing that any further
appearances of Kilgrave from henceforth will be either flashbacks or
nightmares, so I'm now more sanguine about season #2 of "Jessica Jones"
(and, in checking, Tennant is only scheduled as a "guest" for season
#2, so that makes sense). Also, it appears that the Luke Cage "arc" is
also wrapped up in the season finale. All in all, I have no complaints
here, and I liked the final scene with Malcolm effectively acting as
Jessica's "office manager" at the P.I. office.

I also watched a couple more episodes of "Maggie & Bianca: Fashion
Friends" off The Netflix in the original beautiful Italian!!... This
show seems very... scattered (kind of like the Italians!!).

Wynonna Earp (recorded) - "I Hope You Dance". I really liked this
season finale. In fact, "Dark Matter" and WE got things *backwards* -
WE's season finale would have been a perfectly good *series* finale,
while DM ended on a cliffhanger: they should have reversed these!!
Anyway, I think pretty much every season #2 storyline was resolved
(except Rosita escaped - I'm thinking we'll eventually see her
again...), and most were done in pleasing or statisfying ways. They did
set up one thing for season #3 - the Demon "Clootie" is "awake" now
(though has not yet "risen"), so that will presumably be season #3's
"Big Bad".
With this one already renewed, now we just need to see Siffy renew
"Dark Matter" and "Killjoys" as well...


Recorded for later: I did some housecleaning yesterday, which means I
didn't get to the Lifetime flick, so I recorded "Unwritten Obession"
for later. Ditto "The Last Ship's" episode.

the time that they totally messed up the last ep.
While there were definitely (major) plot holes with that whole
storyline (e.g. if you really want to take out Kilgrave? - just use a
*sniper*! no muss, no fuss!!), that's not enough to really cause me to
have major problems with how this went down...

What did you watch?
Jessica Jones (The Netflix) - This can be considered my first "binge",
as I got through the last 4 episodes of this in a single day.
This generally ended satisfactorily.
No. It was the worst finale of any show save Star Trek Voyager. Not a
moment of it was defensible or acceptable.
Post by Ian J. Ball
I'm guessing that any further
appearances of Kilgrave from henceforth will be either flashbacks or
nightmares, so I'm now more sanguine about season #2 of "Jessica Jones"
(and, in checking, Tennant is only scheduled as a "guest" for season
#2, so that makes sense). Also, it appears that the Luke Cage "arc" is
also wrapped up in the season finale. All in all, I have no complaints
here, and I liked the final scene with Malcolm effectively acting as
Jessica's "office manager" at the P.I. office.
Absolute wretched series destroying nonsensical garbage.
I'm surprised.

TWIN PEAKS / The Return, Part 16 / 3x16

["No knock, no doorbell."]

"I am the F.B.I."

I guess we won't be seeing much more of Richard Horne, whom Evil C
referred to as "son." Hopefully. Being as he's a rat bastard, and all.
And I guess we won't be seeing much more of Chantal (or Hutch), either.
She's just as evil, really, but somehow I'm gonna miss her a lot more.
In any case, those bullets seemed a lot more definitive than the sparks
and whatnot. And the main draw: THE REAL AGENT DALE COOPER IS FINALLY
FREAKING BACK!!! But the one-armed man tells him that Dougie "didn't go
back in" and is "still out." He gives Coop a ring and confirms that he
still has "the seed," and that he will make another one for Coop. Diane
tells her rape story to Team Gordon and then reveals that she's a
for-real tulpa. A quick trip to the red room and the one-armed man has
another seed. Coop, as Dougie, bids a temporary goodbye to Janey-E and
Sonny Jim before heading off to Twin Peaks with Rodney and Bradley, who
remain as clueless as ever. Audrey dances to some familiar music at the
roadhouse. In a moment of stress, we see that, as many of us have
suspected all along, Audrey isn't really...there. Bottom line: it's
taken what seems like forever, but things are finally looking and
feeling and sounding a lot more like the Twin Peaks of old. Now they
just need to save Audrey and deal with the Black Lodge once and for all.

Grade: B+

THE STRAIN / Ouroboros / 4x07

[His health failing, Setrakian ignores Eph’s warnings, pushing himself
to the limit in his quest for victory and revenge. Fet and Quinlan race
back to Manhattan, while the Master seals off the city and prepares to
eliminate them all.]

"My name is Abraham Setrakian. And you should know I'm not a number
anymore."

Things are heating up as the final season winds down. Dutch and
Setrakian, whose health is declining in a hurry, recover the Lumen book
that Dutch had stashed away on a rooftop a whole bunch of episodes ago.
Setrakian starts ripping out pages, but is it an inspired approach to
figuring things out or another sign of his decline? Lots of reunions
follow. Eph and Dutch are reunited in NYC. Gus is soon reunited with Eph
and Dutch as they shop for medical supplies for Setrakian. Setrakian is
reunited with Gus, but that one comes with a lot of baggage. Some blood
thinners and saline seem to be the recipe for Setrakian, but he also
wants his life-enhancing formula, which he passes on to Eph to
manufacture -- along with a claim that he's actually 95 years old. Creem
is turning traitor on our heroes. He's stupid enough to think that he
can outmanuever The Master in negotiations and gets...stung. With Dutch
eavesdropping, Eph tells Setrakian the whole story of his wife's end and
TaintedZack's betrayal. Eph gives him a good pep talk in return.
Brooklyn Bridge is falling down. Along with every other bridge and
tunnel into Manhattan. The Master is apparently taking no chances when
it comes to keeping that nuke off the island. But have none of them ever
heard of, say, helicopters? Gus decides to redeem himself for past
mistakes. Eph mixes a batch of the magic potion as Dutch forgives him
for leaving for so long. Alex dies at ZombieCreem's hands when Eichorst
confronts her and Setrakian. Eichorst once again makes the mistake of
spending too much time taunting Setrakian instead of just killing him.
And with the help of a bloodstream full of blood thinners, Setrakian
tricks Eichorst to death. Meanwhile, Gus loses a cousin but puts a final
end to ZombieCreem. All in all, one heck of a finish.

Grade: B

GAME OF THRONES / The Dragon and the Wolf / 7x07

[ A meeting is held in King's Landing. Problems arise in the North.]

"No one walks away
from me."

Lots and lots of familiar faces, all gathering in one place -- rich in
dragon history -- to discuss White Walkers. Dany makes an entrance. Lots
of posturing ensues. A wight is used in a show-and-tell session as Jon
adopts an "I told you so" attitude. Lots of sober expressions and sober
moods ensue. Euron learns that the nasties can't swim and promptly
bails, planning to run back to his island with his ships to wait out the
winter. Cersei, OTOH, agrees to a truce and the recognition of the real
(short term, at least) enemy. But she wants Jon to stay out of it, which
he refuses to do as he publicly pledges his loyalty to Team Dany. So the
deal is quickly off and Cersei is willing to let Team Jon deal with the
threat first, and on his own.

This is soon followed by a long chat between Tyrion and Cersie, during
which he realizes that she's pregnant. So I guess it's not a lie or a
fake-out. Then Dany and Jon have a long chat, during which Dany points
out the obvious: she has to help Jon in the north, but the minute she
does, Cersei is gonna go after what Dany leaves unprotected. Tyrion
returns, followed by Cersei and her change of heart. They'll all fight
together.

Back north, Littlefinger is hard at work manipulating Sansa.

Theon and Jon are next to have a long chat regarding Theon's many
shortcomings, with Jon ultimately forgiving Theon to the extent that he
can. Theon, in turn, realizes that it's time to man up and do right by
his sister, Yara, who once did right by him. He literally fights for
control of the landing party and his absence of a ballsack ultimately
give him the win.

Back north again, Sansa and Arya turn the tables on Littleweaselfinger,
proving that I was right that Sansa couldn't have been as stupid and
gullible as she was playing in that earlier scene (or Arya last week,
for that matter). And I so enjoyed watching that asshat die. "Sometimes
when I'm trying to understand a person's motives, I play a little game.
I assume the worst. What's the worst reason you have for turning me
against my sister?" Heh. Stark women for the win!

Cersei reveals herself as the antiJon to Jaime, admitting that she lied
about her change of heart and admitting that Euron is actually on his
way to collect a mercenary army to fight for Cersei's goals. Sneaky.
Clever, but sneaky. Jaime *finally* sees her for what she is and calls
her bluff when she threatens to have The Mountain kill him. But he --
and I -- clearly saw that there was a really good chance that she wasn't
bluffing.

Bran meets with Sam. Bran knows of Jon's parentage, but it's up to Sam
to inform him about the non-bastard part. (I guess Sam was listening to
Gilly more than I realized -- and more than willing to claim her
discovery.) Bran confirms it all with a vision: Jon Snow's real name is
Aegon Targaryen and he is the true heir to the Iron Throne. (It's
amazing what the Internet can figure out way ahead of time when it puts
its collective mind to it.) Which, given that Jon is currently bedding
Dany, could lead to all kinds of awkwardness once Auntie Dany and her
nephew realize what they've just done. Or maybe they'll just do it
again. And again. And again. Hey, it's Westeros, after all.

Back north again, Sansa and Arya bond over thoughts of the late
Littlefinger. The walkers are at the wall. Until ZombieDragon ensures
that there is no longer any wall at all. Unlike a lot of people,
apparently, I'm no too worried about whether a certain pair of guys
managed to survive what just happened. I hope.

Grade: A-

THE LAST SHIP / Bread & Circuses / 4x03

[Nathan James's crew searches for a precious item leading them to a
strange place of opulence and violence where they cross paths with a
most unexpected ally.]

"Hercules? New call sign?"

Everyone wants the seeds. Chandler and the gang have a reunion when
Capt. Slattery steps in to "fight" his former boss in yet another
Giorgio Fight Club special. After throwing the "fight," Slattery takes a
knife to the gut from Chandler's new squeeze and no one else knows
because it makes all kinds of sense to leave your CO on his own like
that. Fortunately, Adam Baldwin has plenty of padding these days
(famine? what famine?) and so Slattery is unlikely to die anytime soon,
at least not from the knife wound. But bad guys with guns while his own
gun lies out of reach? Yeah, that's a different story. Meanwhile,
Chandler's former crewmates make it obvious on more than one occasion
that they're not entirely trusting him these days, given the
circumstances of their reunion. And understandable since the seeds and
the bad guys are all conveniently in the wind at the moment.

Grade: B-

Why does it have to land? You're carrying a nuclear bomb in a small
civilian aircraft. You aren't going to drop this thing, and you aren't
going to try and get away - this is a suicide mission, plain and simple.
If you know where they're headquartered, in the tower of the Empire
State Building, you're gonna head for it and push the button. If you
don't know where they're headed, well, ironically enough, you're going
to head straight for the tower of the Empire State Building, which is at
the center of the damn island.

It's armed, or ready to be armed? I must have missed that part where

If you know where they're headquartered, in the tower of the Empire
State Building, you're gonna head for it and push the button. If you
don't know where they're headed, well, ironically enough, you're going
to head straight for the tower of the Empire State Building, which is at
the center of the damn island.
It's armed, or ready to be armed? I must have missed that part where
it is good to go. Then i suppose yes, they should have taken it there.
IF they can be sure he's there.
If it's not good to go I don't know why they're trying to drive it
across the bridge to Manhattan Island. You'd think you'd want to be all
ready before you take that last step. ;)

GAME OF THRONES / The Dragon and the Wolf / 7x07
Back north again, Sansa and Arya turn the tables on Littleweaselfinger,
proving that I was right that Sansa couldn't have been as stupid and
gullible as she was playing in that earlier scene (or Arya last week,
for that matter). And I so enjoyed watching that asshat die.
Almost as satisfying as Joffrey's death. The fact that he knew it was
coming-- as opposed to being poisoned out of nowhere-- made it all the
better.

I still think I'm going to hell for laughing at the poster that showed
Tommen about .2 seconds after he leaped from the window with the
caption "King's Landing"!

My only complaint is that Arya should have sawed more slowly instead of
going for the quick cut.
