    And Mr Robot
    I like the new guy played by Bobby Cannavale. But I have to confess -- I have no effing idea what is happening on this show any more.
    I think that's kinda the point. Hell, the main character isn't even sure what's going on half the time. He's constantly breaking the 4th wall and admitting this. He is a true split personality where he can literally be two different people in the same body. One is Elliot, the other is Mr. Robot.

    I think at this point, now that he's gone through with his plan (or was it really Mr Robot's plan?) and seen the destruction he's unleashed and realized it didn't really work out the way he had hoped, he wants to change it all back. But Mr Robot is fighting to not let him. Now suddenly Angela is on board as well because she wants revenge for her parents. I think Darlene is just scared of getting caught and/or killed at this point,

    I'm still enjoying it and will keep watching.
    Yup, that's exactly what they are going for. You really only need to know the basic structure of what is going on. The plan to take down Evil Corp and the plan to pull off another hack is really all you need to know to enjoy the show.

    I'm a big fan of Bobby Cannavale, so that's a great addition to the show.

    Netflix is intent on having scientists invent more hours in a day and/or prolonging lives indefinitely:

    I don't know how Netflix continues to put our series after series. The amount of money they are shelling out is astounding.

    That's what I thought, until a read this interesting article.

    Netflix is on the hook for $20 billion. Can it keep spending its way to success?

    It is. I'm not worried, but it's insane how much money they are spending. The crazy thing is, most of my friends who watch Netflix are still using my login somehow.

    Wowzers. The craziest part of that is that there are no signs that it's going to let up anytime soon. They have to keep spending exponential amounts of money to keep up with the other big networks. Let's see how this plays out over the next few years.

    Exactly. They don't have a choice. The best point that was made was the fact that in order to make the most amount of money, Netflix is going to have to change the kind of films and shows they are producing. Instead of making thoughtful, high-brow dramas, the case was made that they would be better off catering to mainstream audiences by making blockbuster films and low-brow shows. This terrifies me. What sets Netflix apart is the amazing quality of their shows.

    What surprises me the most is the crazy money Netflix has spent on comedy specials. $40 million to Chris Rock for a series of comedy specials, $100 million to Jerry Seinfeld. That's insane. I love those guys, I just don't know anybody that is going to subscribe to Netflix for comedy specials.

    Mindhunter was a great overall show. I thoroughly enjoyed this dark well acted show.

    Economic forces always seem to turn 200 MPH in steel and glass into 55 MPH in fiberglass and plastic, don't they? Unfortunate.
    Hey. You. Yes, you.

    Have you read Shadowland by Peter Straub?

    You've already read him in The Talisman and Black House - there's no excuse for not going further!

    If you haven't read Shadowland - just do it.

    Do it.
