      @dan green season four was the culmination of Dexter, and it’s the last truly great season I agree.

      I wanted to like New Blood, but it really wasn’t that great. The first episode was good. Then after that it was really slow, but then ramped up way too fast like the writers were rushing to the finish.

      It was way too convenient how Angela found out about Dexter being the Bay Harbor Butcher. Especially when you consider one of the big things that leads her to linking him is the ketamine, which is different from the drug he originally used (he used M99). Dumb thing is the writers even seemed to know this and called attention to it in one of the episodes of New Blood.

      Setting that aside the way the finale played out was pretty bad. I didn’t like that Dexter killed Logan, and it didn’t even seem in character for him. Also the way Batista was shoehorned in for a scene making it seem like he was coming to confront Dexter only for it to not happen was just lame.

    • dan green
      dan green 6 days ago

      @Michael Glatt my only problem with the ending was that i wanted harrison to have a happier ending. Really they popped their wad in season 4, no one was going to stack up to Lithgow. Until they brought Brown in for new blood that is.

      Dexter largely depends on how good of an actor a given antagonist is.

    • Michael Glatt
      Michael Glatt 6 days ago +4

      @dan green eh I don’t necessarily fully agree.

      As a season New Blood was better than season eight, but that’s a pretty low bar as season eight was so bad.

      The series finale to New Blood sucked. Also really while New Blood was okay it had a lot of problems throughout.

    When I was a kid, in rural bumfuck Australia, there was this VHC I watched over and over, it was a lady doing magic tricks and singing songs etc. It is seared in my brain but I never could remember who she was or the show. We only had one episode recorded off tv.

    When that Lambchop puppet flashed up I nearly had a fucking stroke. I'm nearly 30 btw and haven't seen the show since I was 4-5 years old. Thank you for solving this mystery I never new was plaguing me.

    The quality of our tape was so bad, I always thought the puppet was a poodle or something

    I actually was a little fuck-up who only got two buckets in the grand prize game. Went with my third grade class in 1988... exact same Bozo and set, and I'm pretty sure I'm close to Mike's age, so probably within a year or two of his visit. My life since then has in fact been an endless streak of failures and never-even-tries, so I've probably been underestimating how much of an impact that goddamn game had on my life. The little girl after me got four buckets. I assume I was relentlessly mocked the entire trip back to the burbs. I don't remember that part, but of course that part wasn't shown on WGN for my dad to tape so I could have the memory reinforced over and over for years.

    I won a skating rink birthday party (never used), a plastic toy tractor (not the farm kind, the tractor-pull race kind), a face painting kit (never used), and a frozen pizza and box of PB Max candy bars (definitely used those).

    Lamb was about dealing with grief, and additionally, they left out the part about the lamb babies supernatural father that returned from the woods to reclaim the lamb child baby
    It's based off an old Norse folk tale.

      Yeah, not really Lamb was about the couple raising a child conceived in adultery. The Ram at the end was just symbolism for the husband commiting suicide after his brother (the child's real father) took his child back.

      @Por0d0mulle in federal prison they kill pedophiles on sight. If it comes out that your cell mate is a pedophile, and you don't kill him, you will be stabbed or killed, because people will think you are defending or condoning him by letting him live. That's how extreme it is in the Penn. People don't understand how it works. Epstein was so miserable in prison that he would pay his attorneys a ton of money, just so he could get out of cell and sit in the lawyer meeting run with then for eight hours reading magazines. The warden has caught on that Epstein was misusing the lawyer meeting room like this, and the penn was cutting off these daily 8 hour visits. He was finally in a place were his money couldn't bail him out.

      But yeah you're making my point for me. The evidence for Epstein being assassinated is all circumstantial. There is no physical evidence, abs the actual nuts and bolts of what it would take to get in there and kill Epstein make no sense. If you actually take all the known evidence- the federal charges against his COs, info about the layout of the floor, which cameras were filming- it becomes totally impossible that anyone got into his cell and killed him. There's no way to square that evidence with the idea an assassin came from elsewhere, strangled him, then staged a suicide.

    • Por0d0mulle
      Por0d0mulle 3 days ago +1

      @wolfumz no he didn’t. If you _think_ about the actual facts it makes absolutely no sense that he’d be able to kill himself. Only a naive and disinformed person concludes that the official story is the true one.

    • wolfumz
      wolfumz 3 days ago

      @Por0d0mulle he killed himself. If you look at the facts around his hanging, there's no real explanation for how someone could have gotten into his cell and killed him. It doesn't hang together. However, people are generally misinformed and confused about what federal prison is actually like, so they buy into it.

    I loved that very last frame of Saint Maud. It WAS the perfect punctuation for the end of that film.

    As someone that grew up in a Catholic family, that went to Sunday School and was an altar boy… then grew up and took World’s & Comparative Religion courses in college and came out the other side an agnostic atheist (meaning I don’t believe ANY of the religious shit I was taught as a kid but I also don’t think that any of us can possibly know the truth without a shadow of a doubt, but *still* lean on the side of “this is all we have here on Earth, and we should be the best people we can be and make the most of it while we’re here”. I think this was an excellent and terrifying movie that shows how dangerous someone can be when they fully believe they have the power of God on their side and that they’re doing the right thing and you’re going to hell if you don’t do the same. It’s on Hulu if you wanna check it out. I think it’s a good watch.

      @Ciaran Maher At the last moment she gets shot and killed by what had appeared to be some misogynist Trumper she had told to go fuck himself after ruining the life of at the beginning of the film. It shows how whether or not you think she was justified doesn't matter and her 'winning' doesn't matter because she had to effectively be an uncaring sociopath to win and any 'victory' for her self-proclaimed brand of girlboss was just genderflipping being a terrible human being instead of any actual care about who she was or what she represented. By killing her it showed that this sort of action inevitably leads to push back from the abused - what the abused believe in doesn't matter, whether or not they were justified not mattering, simply that if you step on fingers to the top there is always that risk of destruction.

      But that no matter how justified the revenge is or necessary it can be, it's ultimately something that will only strike somebody randomly. 99% of the time they will get away with it, and even if they do face 'justice' in some form like this, to most people they'll be lionized. It's a huge amount of symbolism about capitalism and modern power structures. Most people just think "i hate movie until dum feminist BITCH get kill!!!!! she should be torchure!!!! but dum feminazi librels made girlboss movie insted" which is just sort of missing the entire point of the film to the point of self-parody.
