Re: Fans of Le Television

I think over the top probably works better for television, since it's pushing a very unrealistic premise. The book kind of feels like you're supposed to already be familiar with Gaiman's all gods exist universe, and takes that knowledge for granted.

But you have it just right...it does feel like they're overselling it. Not enough to turn me off, though, and Gillian Anderson is god damn rocking every scene she's in. etc-jurishlick

As for Hannibal, haha yeah. That...doesn't really improve? I will give that the show is willing to torture its Gary Stu, which is nice. And as it goes on, characters are given other things to do aside from moon over Will. It helps that Abigail stops being the center of their universe, too. Season 2 is definitely the best one. Season 3 starts out absolutely amazing but they found out halfway through that the show was getting canceled and it shows. (Same as Penny Dreadful's last season booo) I absolutely love that the show is ambiguous about very little, but what it does kind of not say is usually outrageous. THE BEER HAS PEOPLE IN IT, ALANNA!!!

PS. The Hannibal cookbook is quite excellent and highly recommended.

How to watch Planet Earth II:

Wait until just before your period when you're all overemotional.

Choke up at every cat your see and sob uncontrollably whenever there's baby animals and/or life and death hunt sequences.

Re: Fans of Le Television

I watched just add magic, and I am shocked by how good this was. Truly underrated. For a show with the concept of 3 best gal pals finding a magical cook book at one of there grandma's attic, they have pretty good worldbuilding and mystery. It is a combination of magical girl (more specifically magical witch) shows and gravity falls. If you like these stuff you will love this.

Also watched the first episode of the handmaidens tale, anyone know if its any good afterwards? It is very interesting but seems kind of depressing.

If you don't pay attention, a lot will go over your head, that's for sure.

I love the filming, it's all

Nope. Definitely a TV show. Look here for more details http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5834204/ But dont worry, I know the handmaiden movie has a [Happy ending cool] even tho I only heard of it and never watched it.

Make sure you watch as many Untucked episodes as you can find, too.


Sometimes I wonder if I'm ever gonna make it home again.
It's so far and out of sight.

Season 9 is pretty damn good! It's definitly a drama-filled season, though, which can be a pro or a con depending on if you enjoy the queens throwing miles of shade or not. Some drama I enjoy (Sharon vs Phi Phi, Bianca vs everyone but especially Laganja) but some I was just like "can ya'll stop fighting please."
Haven't seen any of Untucked yet, but I am aware of some of the infamous events like "I AM FROM CHICAGO" and Laganja's freakout.
Edit: I kept misspelling Laganja "Lagagna." More like Lasagna heehee.

Re: Fans of Le Television

Just finished season 1 of The Killing, which I really enjoyed—a bit like True Detective, which it predates, or Twin Peaks minus the surrealism. (I'm not a huge TP fan, which is probably enough to have me killed in certain parts.)

I also found a huge guilty pleasure in 13 Reasons Why. I suppose considering my own mental health I should find it really offensive, but. I honestly like the way these minor incidents are shown to accumulate—as F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, "At 3 in the morning a missed package has the same tragic importance as a death sentence, and in a true dark night of the soul it is always 3 in the morning, every day." Or something like that.

Re: Fans of Le Television

All the shows I'm excited for are drag related in some way; season 10 of RPDR and season 3 of All Stars comin' out sometime, Trixie and Katya are getting a show on November 1st (super hyped because I adore those two), and my former favorite queen Alaska Thunderfuck is gonna be on this new haunted-mansion-reality-show Scared Famous.

Re: Fans of Le Television

The finale of Twin Peaks was so good. I worried a little, as someone whose opinion I respect called it the worst finale he'd ever seen. I knew I wouldn't be that disappointed, but suddenly, there was risk. But, no, the show that's excited me the most in recent years paid off beautifully.

Already seen several "End of Twin Peaks" or "Neon Genesis Peaks" memes, but was happy to see some SKU ones, too.
