...but I'll be damned if there's a better show than The Leftovers.

I concur!

Iím not fully getting the Chernobyl love. How do you make a catastrophe of that proportion such a dry affair?

It's mostly the overfamiliar-TV-faces-speaking-English thing that caused me to skip this. At least The Americans had the Russians speak Russian. Heck, even Bryan Fuller's sci-fi comedy High Moon had half the dialogue in subtitled Russian.

The leader of the coal miners has a Scottish accent because ... coal. I can no longer watch a production like this without imagining Teprocís ears hurting.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Episode three kind of burnt me out. Somehow lost a sense of intensity even in the middle of a crisis.

It was a strong first episode, though one wonders if Refn is, at this point, a parody of himself. If that is the path all provocateurs follow. I suppose I will know after approximately 11-13 more hours. Feel like I'm on board regardless.

Without posting spoilers, all Iíll say is the Theme to The Neverending Story FTW.
Stranger Things S3 has been. So. Damn. Good.
Hey, nice marmot!

No matter how many people say how amazing Succession is, I just cannot get excited for a show about rich white guys.

Most TV is garbage. Don't let them fool you. Read a book instead.
