I just finished season 2 of Bloodline. Fantastic show but season 2 is really lacking the presence of Danny Rayburn. The flashbacks just aren't the same.

Started season 4 of Luther. So far so good.

Nope, it's still a great season full of twists and turns. Keep watching. I just really miss Ben Mendelsohn's role in the show.

I watched the miniseries, The Night Manager. Pretty solid show. Hiddleston gives a stellar performance.
Aquarius. If you are keen on the 60s, groovy tunes and Charles Manson - check this out. David Duchovny's rather amusing in his role as a FBI agent mixing it up with the Blank Panthers and the Manson family.

what happened and still happens there is horrific, but it is a human story, not an Indonesian story. it is such an unflinching, insightful, and perceptive study of the dynamics of power and how it is wielded in human society. make no mistake,there are very real elements in Trump's allure and the fervor of his followers that are parallel to what went on in Indonesia. do you doubt for a second that if Trump was elected and started upping his anti-immigrant and minority rhetoric that we wouldn't see a rash of attacks and killings against immigrant and minority groups across this country by those who would see Trump's election as a go ahead to act out on their savage impulses? that is the truth in this documentary that ought to send chills down your spine.

I just binge-watched Marcella on Netflix. Anna Friel plays one tortured detective. This is a very dark crime drama that is superb. I'm very glad to hear that a season 2 is in the works.

I'm not going to touch the Trump thing, but I certainly agree that we as Americans have a weird relationship with the past, where we glorify and mythologize the aspects of it that we think make us great, but ignore the unsavory parts and even become angry when reminded of them. In that sense I can see the connection between Indonesian history and our own. What I found interesting and unique about The Act of Killing/The Look of Silence was how recently the genocide was, and how the people who perpetrated it are simultaneously proud and ashamed of what they did.

kind of like the civil rights marches here where white Americans hurled racial slurs and threw rocks and bricks at them while the police beat therm and set their dogs on them and how those same white people are still around waving their rebel flags, a hold-over from the civil war when their forefathers fought to keep slavery, and talking about pride in their white southern heritage. you mean like that??? ever heard of the groups like Sons of the Confederacy or Daughters of the Confederacy? that is the problem with people in this country, we like to think we are better than everyone else in the world, the whole, "it couldn't happen here" mentality. :roll:

I think the outward differences are what help draw the viewer into the depiction of such a horrific event, but as the film unfolds I think that an awareness should start creeping in that this is the same old story of the desire for power over others and the lengths that people will go and justifications they will use for their actions no matter how brutal. the same that has happened and still does happen here, just dressed up in a different culture.

Postby TheButcher on Thu Jul 21, 2016 6:06 pm

CBR Mon, December 16th, 2013:
EXCLUSIVE: REMENDER & CRAIG DETAIL THE "DEADLY CLASS" CURRICULUM
For Marcus Lopez, each day at King's Dominion High for the Deadly Arts is an exercise in survival -- literally. His classmates are the children of the world's most prestigious crime families, each one uniquely equipped to expel him permanently. But Marcus is tough, a survivor, with a strong ethical code and a kindness that has caught the attention of the school's administration. Fresh off the streets and newly enrolled to become an assassin, Marcus finds himself facing the same disenfranchised, dangerous social negotiations as any high school kid in 1987 -- except the stakes for him are much higher.

In January, wildly-talented writer Rick Remender, up and coming artist Wesley Craig and colorist Lee Loughridge launch their newest Image Comics series, "Deadly Class." With it's dark, underground vibe and a cast of characters steeped in the iconic subcultures of the late '80s, this is a very personal story for Remender, who drew on his teenage experiences among punks and outcasts to create the story. Remender joined Craig to speak with CBR News about the series, which he believes will be a high point in his prolific career.


CBR Fri, December 4th, 2015:
REMENDER HINTS AT TV DEALS FOR "DEADLY CLASS," "BLACK SCIENCE"

Deadline:
‘Deadly Class’ Comic To Be Adapted As TV Series Produced By Joe & Anthony Russo
Nellie Andreeva wrote:Just as comic book fans are descending on San Diego for Comic-Con, I hear a TV series adaptation of Image Comics’ Deadly Class has come together with the comic’s co-creator/writer Rick Remender and Captain America and The Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo. The package is set at Sony Pictures TV and is expected to be taken out shortly, targeting cable networks and streaming services.

Written by Remender and Miles Feldsott (form. Field), the Deadly Class TV series is an unlikely coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of late 80’s counter culture which follows a disillusioned teen recruited into a storied high school for assassins. Maintaining his moral code while navigating a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties may prove fatal.

Remender, the Russo brothers and Feld executive produce alongside Adam Targum (Banshee), who will serve as showrunner, and Mike Larroca, president of Russo’s Getaway Prods.

Deadly Class, which Remender co-created with artist Wes Craig, was launched in 2014. Veteran comic book writer Remender is best known for his work on Marvel Comics’ Uncanny Avengers, Uncanny X-Force, and Venom. He also has written/co-created such comics as LOW, Black Science, Tokyo Ghost, Fear Agent, Strange Girl, and Last Days of American Crime.

Remender is attending Comic-Con and will be at the Image booth on Friday 1-2 PM and Saturday 4-5 PM.

Coming off directing Marvel’s Captain America: Winter Soldier and Civil War, the Russos are helming the upcoming two-part Avengers: Infinity War. They started in TV and won an Emmy for directing the pilot of Fox’s Arrested Development.

Anyone catch Designated Survivor? I watched the first episode and I'll likely stick around for more to see how it plays out. Not sure if I'm blown away like many of the critics are but it's definitely an engaging hour and Kiefer's pretty solid in this.

I saw it. It was entertaining enough. I like the leads enough to keep watching.
This fall seems to have a lot of shows that intrigue me. I'll probably end up missing some shows, and that's too bad. There seems to be a lot of new shows that cover all possible genres - highbrow shows that make you think about it all week long, and lowbrow guilty pleasure shows that you'll never admit to watching in the first place.


I'm currently watching The Night Of. I thought I'd binge it a few episodes at a time....nope. The slow pace and poor desicions of the lead character make it difficult to watch for me. And that's not a negative criticism! It's just painful watch at times (as it's meant to be) and I need some time to digest each episode before I move on to the next one.

I just watched the first couple episodes of The Good Place on Hulu, that's kind of fun. There are mini-ethics lessons in each episode (like legit philosophical tracts, not just "being bad is bad"), which is interesting. It's from the Parks & Rec. team, which can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you felt about that show. But anything with Ted Danson AND Kristen Bell is at least watchable. And I already know that "bullshirt" is going to be one of those things that I start saying ironically but end up saying all the time.

I'd love to talk with you about The Night Of once you get closer to the end. Naz certainly made some bad decisions, but I feel a little defensive when people criticize him (or worse, the show itself) for being stupid. For one thing it's hard to tell how anybody would react in that situation, especially whacked-out on a cocktail of drugs and alcohol, but the other thing is that no matter what he says I felt, deep down, he never knew for sure that he didn't actually do it (and neither do you, yet).

The pain that watching him make bad decisions caused...is part of what makes the show work for me at this point - because it does feel real.

BTW, the pilot for This Is Us....possibly one of the best pilot episodes I've ever seen. I don't know that the show can match the pilot episode, but I'm more than willing to give it a chance.

I'm on episode 4 of The Night Of. This show is superb. John Turturro is so good in this. What is going on with the DA? She comes across as a recent stroke victim.

There is a lot of good buzz for This is Us. I am going to check this one out.

I watched Speechless. I was pleasantly surprised. It's quite funny. Minnie Driver is quite the powerhouse.

Finally finished The Night Of.
Loved it.

The ending as a whole (courtroom to the end) was so brutally tense. I kept waiting for something bad to happen to Naz on his exit from jail. I knew that the scene was just echoing his entrance to Rikers, but with Freddy's unicorn speech and the show's knack for shitting on Naz, I expected blood.

I loved the various endings that ranged from tragic to Hollywood to poignant.

Yeah, me too. I thought for sure the axe was gonna fall on Naz before he made it out of those gates.

I was a little annoyed at the time at the (mostly) happy ending -- the cynical cop and the cynical D.A. having changes of heart and going after the real killer, Naz being freed and coming home, even John Turturro going back and saving that fucking cat. But in hindsight, I'm glad. Not everything has to be relentlessly tragic like The Wire. Sometimes you need a win. And they still did a good job of demonstrating how the system can fail the unlucky, and how even people who make it out of prison are changed for the worse. Is Naz addicted to heroin now? Will he ever be able to re-adjust to society? These are questions the show leaves unanswered.

The one I really felt bad for was Chandra, the assistant who takes over Naz's case. Possibly the most idealistic character, she got exploited and tossed aside by everybody else.

Louis C.K.'s "Horace and Pete" is on Hulu now. I'm only a couple episodes into it but it sure is something. If you get the chance I highly recommend listening to C.K.'s most recent appearance on the WTF Podcast where he talks about the process of creating the show.

I watched the entire season of The Crown on Netflix. This is a top notch series with superb acting by Claire Foy, John Lithgow and Dr. Who (aka Matt Smith). The story line for Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend's ill-fated love affair is heartbreaking to watch. Can't wait for season 2.

‘Emerald City’ Review: NBC’s ‘Wizard of Oz’ Retelling Is a Weird, Wild Ride
If you're a fan of 'Once Upon a Time' then you may have a new obsession.

Emerald City Is So Shallow That It Almost Appears Deep
NBC’s ambitious Emerald City, premiering tonight, is occasionally stunning, sometimes emotionally interesting, and often an audacious reimagining of not just The Wizard of Oz, but all of L. Frank Baum’s Oz books. But mostly it’s as empty as the Scarecrow’s brain.
