    The actress who plays the first victim in Oregon was also one of the two leads in Booksmart (very funny, recommended). Hard to believe she has that kind of range, amazingly talented.

    How does it stack up ?
    I'm honestly sure how it compares because I didn't read the comics, but it's an excellent show by itself.

    What did you think of Mindhunter?

    I'm waiting to see if they do one of my distant family relations on there in the next couple of seasons. I won't name drop because he's a piece of **** and doesn't deserve the credit.

    I've enjoyed both seasons. They aren't really memorable, though. Just like the UNABOM docudrama... I got through 3 or 4 episodes the other day before I realized I had already watched it. Here's to infinite replays?

    How familiar are you with Manhunter.

    Not really something that can be binge-watched but super excited to watch this when it comes out this week:



    In an era where special effects trumps character deveopment and streaming platforms highlight the homogeneity of movies, this promises to be something unique. A slow-burn character study - but not of a hero or desirable character but of a marginalised, bullied and mistreated outcast (and the results).

    Even more relevant in today's social media saturated existence than in the 1970's where this is set (albeit in fictional Gotham), Joker promises to be more a modern apologue than comic-book fan service. To paraphrase a review (which I can't find again so can't reference) "in a time of laughably unrealistic comic book movies, the most real one is about a clown".

    This also popped into my youtube feed the other day, which I think feeds into the background for what (I hope) will make this movie shine:

    Funny thing about Gotham City.

    Most people think it's New York. Nope, it's in New Jersey.

    Preacher wrapped up over the weekend. I enjoyed the finale.

    I'm going to miss this series. They did a good job with wrapping it up and not getting too involved in the B plots.

    Just finished Kengan Asura, Fightworld and young justice outsiders

    Blasting through the last few marvel netflix seasons. Iron Fist was a joke, Luke cage was a character assassination, jessica jones still feels its the best so far, but Im saving punisher season 2 for next and then finish where it started with Daredevil.

    I'll probably then move onto Titans
