Regarding Wolves. Can’t wait for the next episode. The religious aspect makes it a show worth watching. I’m surprised the Catholic Church hasn’t called for a boycott.

Mother and Father are following their programming. They are not inherently evil. The interesting thing now is that the couple with stolen identities are probably from the faction that programmed the androids. It is interesting how magpie their behavior is. Not only did they move into the faces of another couple, but they have really bought into having a son that they need to protect.

That's an interesting theory, we don't really get their backgrounds before they stole the identities. Any thoughts on why Campion is the only one not affected by the radiation? I think something's up with that.

And is anybody else REALLY pissed off by the way season 2 of Doom Patrol just suddenly ended?

So I’ve learned to accept Lovecraft Country as good dumb fun, but what I can’t stand is a period piece that randomly throws in current music. It completely takes you out of it. And this isn’t my place as a white guy, but I find it kind of offensive that the main cast is black and they throw in current Hip Hop music because of course they do. If it was a choice decided on by everybody then fine, still don’t appreciate somebody playing current club DJ in the middle of a period piece.

Well, I had a different complaint. There were parts of the fourth episode I just didn't buy. The biggest was when after walking what looked like miles of wet tunnel, Atticus, Letitia and Montrose then come to and cross that infinite-looking chasm on a narrow plank, aided in the darkness only by a flashlight and kerosene lamp. I'm sorry, the bravest man in the world would've turned around and said "Fuck that!"

For my viewing that was just par for the course. Beyond even the supernatural element, the show is riddled with "that would never happen" moments. The whole moving into a house in an all white neighborhood storyline is chalked full of over the top stereotypical characters and behaviors, from both sides, that wouldn't have been handled by either completely being ignored or going downtown for 10 minutes and then just repeat the same behavior and outcome daily.

@Alli did you get a chance to see the last two episodes of Raised by Wolves? They left us on a great cliff hangar for next week.

I saved this week’s episode of both Wolves and Lovecraft for tonight since there’s no Rachael Maddow on the weekend.

Ahh, I see. They released two episodes on Thursday and we watched both that night, it's really addictive!

Ok, watched them both. I was amazed at Mother’s back story. I did not see that coming.

So far, the entire show is just a joy. No complaints about anything.

Ok my dudes. This week’s episode of Lovecraft. Loved the arc through gender and color. Very well done. But WTF was the last scene? Just a teaser for next week?

I just watched episode 1 of HBO’s The Third Day.

It starts with a man (Jude Law) in the woods witnessing a girl hanging herself. He rescues her, but that leads him to this little island where the people are...weird.

So far it’s got a very strong “Wicker Man” vibe, with a hint of “The Purge”. References to druids and satanism and possible human sacrifices.

And like many HBO shows, it’s got its own “look”—exaggerated depth of field, weird tints.... Nothing else looks quite like it.

I think I’m already hooked.

I have to admit that while I’ve seen both “Wicker” movies, I only know about “The Purge” by reputation. A review I saw of “The Third Day” compared it more to a cross between “Wicker” and “Midsommar”.

At least it doesn’t have Nicholas Cage in it. 😁
