I thought it was a goodbye for Harris but I rewatched the trailers and there are more scenes with him that we still didn’t watched yet.April 6, 2020 at 1:41 pm #1203413059
Euphoria deserves nominations for Zendaya, cinematography, score, original song, production design, editing and more. That first season was such a surprise.
Cinematography! The carnival episode.
Luca, what your opinion about the first four episodes of Westworld season 3?April 5, 2020 at 9:06 pm #1203411841
Very intense episode and the best of the season. Lot of action and it seems that next week will have a lot too. I thought about Charlote being Dolores, but I had no idea about she being everyone. Maeve in Singapore was beautiful, really nice design. The fights were thrilling.
The title episode of next episode is Genre, the name of the drug present in this episode. Spoiler of the trailer: I think Caleb will use this drug and have allucinations. There is a black and white scene in the trailer, maybe it is a part of this.April 4, 2020 at 9:22 pm #1203410372
Martin Mull and Bradely Whitford were guest on the last B99 episode.April 3, 2020 at 10:31 pm #1203409084
Wait lol hold up, first of all Carrell’s performance is pretty weak. Second of all the show does a piss-poor job trying to characterize the man. Apart from him being an unlikable character due to his actions, he’s also just plain annoying on screen.
Exactly! Its not just not good, it was awful. It was easily the worst part of the show.April 2, 2020 at 12:44 pm #1203406777
For the first seven episodes, I could not figure out why Sarah Paulson was in the show. Being a sidekick of Blanchett, she was actually in the first episode and had a minor subplot soon after, but she disappeared in the middle of the season and unlike pretty much everyone else, she was playing a fictional character. Then I saw the eighth episode, which turned out to be a deep-dive character study for her unlike any episode since the first. The title should have been “Alice”, but it is called “Houston” to reflect that it is the only episode with only one setting. Unlike the previous six episodes that jump around between subplots, Paulson is in basically every frame of the first forty minutes of the episode. Whereas other episodes might span years, this one takes place over about twenty-four hours. It is not an episode of Mrs. America, but an episode from a completely different show. Specifically, it is an episode of The Leftovers. Even the producers know it. The episodes that FX gave the press were unfinished—increasingly so toward the end of the season. There were green screens everywhere, dialogue that needed to be dubbed and temporary music. For this episode, they used Max Richter’s iconic main theme from The Leftovers at various points. I do not even remember the previous episodes of Mrs. America having a score. Because Alice is an invented character, the show has a flexibility with her that they do not with the spotlight characters of the other episodes, which are kind of mini biopics, so the episode has a surreal quality to it, like The Leftovers. Crazy things happen out of nowhere, there are dream sequences and it is immersive and overwhelming. Paulson gets to do everything that we know she can. This is a winning tape. I am curious to see what the final cut looks like though because it will be quite different without Richter.
OMG, I need this episode version.April 1, 2020 at 7:53 pm #1203405784
I am rewatching The Good Place and it I am so amazed how creative and great the serie is in the first three seasons. It is really a shame they never won anything, because season 4 is easily the weakest.April 1, 2020 at 7:36 pm #1203405766
Riley, you think Mr. Robot could get a writting nomination? Sadly will not get the deserved recognition even being the best series of this Emmy season, but since it was nominated by WGA, I will be happy if it receive a nomination.April 1, 2020 at 5:14 pm #1203405667
They are really praising the chemistry between the two leads, can’t wait.
There two others reviews that liked the show: Decider (they loved it): “it feels impossible that anything better than this series will grace our screens this year. It’s that good.”
And Slashfilm: “As strong as Jones’ scripts are, it’s Wever and Gleeson who make Run so special.”April 1, 2020 at 4:40 pm #1203405568
What about BBC/PBS movie, The Windermere Children, with 90 on metacritic (4 reviews)?April 1, 2020 at 12:58 pm #1203405244
Can’t wait to see Blanchett’s desperate attempt to win an Emmy lose to another powerful performance by an Emmys darling.
And I’m rooting for that to happen in Drama race as well with Laura Linney.
But how is desperate to win an Emmy in Drama Actress? Aniston?April 1, 2020 at 12:03 pm #1203405110
Yes it is.
Why?March 31, 2020 at 8:14 pm #1203404082
People have been liking the show though and people will like the next episode, with its answers and callbacks. Ed Harris could submit it, but not in lead, as I was surprised to find that it is an ensemble episode. Ramin Djawadi does one of his signature orchestral covers, but I could not place the song and neither could Shazam.
Thank you for this, can’t wait.
