    ^Thanks Ronnel for this :p

    now in Mr. Robot, i think the last two episodes were sort of ice-breakers from the rather bleak precursor episodes, especially the last one...

    thoughts:

    1. eliot telling krista that he hacks her and reveals to her what he knows about her (even what kind of porn she watches) is stupefying...will krista keep his secret or will she break out and report him for doing what he did? maybe not, but it was cool to think what she was thinking...

    2. mr. robot engaging with two other characters without eliot may take away our thoughts about him doing a tyler durden approach...but still, just maybe, those two were actually talking to eliot as mr. robot somehow? maybe...

    3. angela and colby, what was that? i get it that she wanted answers, but to support the most obnoxious man (who tells her to suck his hairy balls...) by lying about the "chain of custody" of the .dat file? who is she really protecting anyway? probably not all-safe? hmmm

    4. finally, tyrell choking to death scott's wife, was it a crime of passion or murder? did he lose control or did he do what he wanted to do? was that shock in the end or was it a realization that he could murder someone? i don't know but tyrell is some sick, agonizing prick...

    most riveting this episode (sans the spine-tingler last time when vera had shayla offed despite his escape thru eliot) so i guess, there's some hope in the horizon for this show...

    frankly these were 9/10s for me...

    Sense8 renewed for season 2 on Netflix

    Good news, Sensies! Netflix has renewed Sense8 for a second season, and the show’s cast helped share the news.

    The streaming service made the announcement Saturday through a special video message posted to Twitter and Facebook. “Birthdays are just the beginning,” read the caption, as actors Aml Ameen, Jamie Clayton, Doona Bae, and more sang renditions of “Happy Birthday.” “We are coming back,” Bae said. “Yay! Season 2! See you on Netflix.”

    The Sense8 season 2 announcement comes a month after the series hosted a panel at this year’s Television Critics Association. At that time, executive producer J. Michael Straczynski said he was “still awaiting word” on a renewal, adding, “We’re cautiously optimistic, but, ultimately, it’s Netflix’s call.”

    Developed by Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix, Jupiter Ascending), Sense8 follows eight individuals from all around the world who discover they are mentally linked to each other. They must find a way to survive those who believe them to be a global threat. Netflix continues to demonstrate dedication to developing and furthering its original content, including Daredevil, House of Cards, and Orange Is the New Black. Though more Sense8 wasn’t guaranteed, it seemed unlikely they’d give up this property so easily. Now fans can rejoice with this official confirmation.

    True Detective finally ends...at last!

    i always had high hopes for this series but nay to say, this wasn't its season...no amount of convoluted plots and twists can take away Rust Cohle and his quest for season one's killer...here it was just too complicated, and too easy so to speak...

    and what did we learn from Paul's death? or Ray's? or even Frank's? practically nothing, just good riddance (well except for Paul who shot it out in Jason Bourne fashion but still ended up face down on the pavement courtesy of Lt. Burris...)

    this was a season so forgettable, i will have to retrace season one again just to erase the taste of this season's tang flavor...

    so, so long TD...it wasn't that good. Period.

    Penny Dreadful. Just started watching on iflix. Looks promising from the first episode. Ok, a lot of it has to do with my fantasy dominatrix Eva Green. Yumyumyummy Eva Green. Disappointing lang she's dressed in ancient era garb that covers up a lot. :p

    ^yes, but underneath those you have to wonder what else is there...aren't those Victorian women so chaste in the outside but libidinous inside?

    yup. this series was so difficult to follow. I even activated the closed caption feature just so I'll be able to understand what the characters were mostly whispering to one another..... the weird plots and the very slow pace.... & all those deaths. quite depressing to watch.. glad that it's finally over..

    The Brink on the other hand.. loaded with laughs, at least for me. :)

    Anyone watched the Lucifer Pilot? I enjoyed it. Wondering though why he gets a wee bit scared of the angel. Cant wait for 2016.

    Mr. Robot confuses me as much as True Detective Season 2 did!

    if this were all real now, that generation is one messed up family tree...MR, Eliot & Darlene...and maybe, just maybe, the Mom might be alive too?

    otoh, i like the exposition and terminology behind the hacks in this episode, like something i would want to do...

    Saw your post when I scrolled down right before watching the finale lol. Although I assumed it would happen. You can't have your cake and all that.

    When Colin Farrell exited the highway, it reminded me of De Niro in Heat. They were both in the clear, but they just had to mess it up.
