  1. I guess the stereotyping could also be construed as the show being a bit dated by today's standards. What we consider stereotyping today was probably rather groundbreaking at the time (90s--last century!) given LGBTQ wasn't even an acronym and the subject matter still fairly taboo. All in the eyes of the beholder, I think.
  2. The Selfosopist episode was absolutely one of my favorites. For such a dark show, MM could deliver some great humor when certain writers wanted to do it! Anyway, seesthru, I didn't make that connection w/BCS, so thanks. When the show comes back, I'll look for him as he's coming back according to the press.
  3. Just read it--good article. Neo-gothic sums it up, though unlike the writer, I wasn't "frustrated" by the characters in In Arcadia Ego dying at the end. There's that inevitability for so many characters in MM, but in this case, made the story that much more poignant. Thin White Line was a Morgan and Wong episode, and I usually liked theirs the most, but I just don't remember it, but it HAS been 25 years, right?🤔
  4. I remember In Arcadia Ego as a favorite. It was done thoughtfully and artfully. The Thin White Line I'll have to refresh my recollection about. Do look forward to reading the article. Thanks for posting, Old Man.
  5. I don't have Netflix either, Old Man, but here, BCS is on AMC anyway. These TV subscriptions can add up very quickly... BCS took its time getting going, but it was a good opportunity to develop Jimmy/Saul character. Now, being slowed down in production b/o Covid, I just hope I remember what happened in the show so long ago.🤔
  6. The world can't seem to kick this virus, can it? This delta variant is so contagious. Hope everyone is managing to stay well.
  7. Sense and Antisense was one of the most interesting episodes IMO. It was creepy but tethered to reality. I liked that.
  8. I thought I had started a Better Call Saul topic here a few years ago, but I can't find it. Maybe I didn't. Anyway, it's only tangentially related to MM inasmuch as show co-creator Vince Gilligan once wrote for Chris Carter's 1013--one or two X-Files. Small Potatoes was one. Long and short, I was sorry to read this week that Bob Odenkirk, who plays Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman/Gene Takovic collapsed on set. He apparently had a "small" heart attack, but is doing okay. He's a really good actor IMO and the show is arguably better than its pre-sequel, Breaking Bad. I can't imagine what they'd do if they lost him in the show's last season! Looks like that great finale will be delayed even more. Sh^t! https://www.msn.com/en-in/entertainment/entertainmenttopstories/better-call-saul-star-bob-odenkirk-recovering-from-small-heart-attack/ar-AAMM78B
  9. I don't specifically remember Frank S.'s comment in MATM about that, but it was a little while ago I saw it. I just remember the talk about how you really had to be a self-starter and not need much help or oversight as a writer. They didn't apparently have writers' rooms in the way we usually think of them. They were able to do that in S-1 & 3 where the episodes were self-contained, but S-2, M&W kind of serialized, adding mythology. Anyway, it had to be extremely challenging, especially when CC was doing XF, an XF movie, along w/Harsh Realm and The Lone Gunmen. His involvement had to be, by necessity, minimal. I think Frank S. in particular learned a lot about work ethic from his days w/CC--to his credit. I've enjoyed watching his career advance over the years. I do think peoples' memories fade over time, and sometimes gets rewritten for posterity. At the time, they may not have had things as planned as they say they were today, though it would be interesting to go back in time and find out, to be sure.
  10. I don't know for sure what Morgan and Wong had in mind, but at the time there was a good amount of grousing about it, even publicly. "How were we supposed to write our way out of an apocalypse?" some griped. Well, they did it. It wasn't how I or others might have wanted it or done it ourselves, but that indicates, to me, anyway, there were any number of ways to do it. If I recall correctly, and I might not since I watched it quite some time ago, but Frank S. commented about that being writers' jobs and the whole point in The Millennium After the Millennium. I'd agree. Some people would correctly call it a cliffhanger. The same thing was mentioned with the S-3 finale. The show wasn't renewed, so it was a moot point. Too bad, because MM had a whole lot more of story to tell, IMO, as it was perhaps the most malleable TV ever, or at least at the time. What would you have done Peter Watts?
  11. Yes, they canceled it after just the 2nd episode, I guess because it was just too expensive to shoot with all the Covid rules in effect. A shame, I rather dig the show. There is such of dearth of TV dramas right now b/c of Covid. Some new documentaries which are good, but not for everyone, I don't think. Still, anything's better than this 24 hour news cycle all the time IMO--too depressing.
  12. Something for the Old Man, perhaps. "Next" premiered tonight on the East Coast on our Fox network, and it's pretty good. A nice tech-dystopia (specifically AI) taking place in present day. I hate the camera work, but there's such a dearth of new drama on TV, I'm in a very forgiving mood with such things. Trailer here
  13. Masks were illegal to wear in public in NYC until this--for good reason. We needed to be able to ID criminals. Now you're a criminal if you don't wear one. A hundred young adults in their 20s went to a party in a nearby county. Eight got Covid and the county wanted to "contact-trace" them. They refused. The county subpoena'd them and they'd faced a $2,000/day fine each if they dodged it. They didn't. The thing was, the people at the party were all aware of the good chance they'd catch the virus and it's doubtful the tracing made any difference. What does matter is that they knew they were positive and needed to stay isolated for 14 days. (Hopefully they really did.) We've gotta be careful to not only not get the virus, but to not let it turn us into a surveillance state. I think we're having a hard time in figuring out how to do that. Glad to hear you're opening up over there! Can't wait for this to end.
  14. That photo looks like it's from Coney Island in the 1950s except for the white house. Very crowded. I ended up getting a couple of masks from my dentist, but they were NOWHERE to be found for literally months. Ended up using a bandana:) We've had a similar situation here where the states are all doing their own things. Some are downright oppressive. Others are being more sensible: trying to stay safe but open. But we have the BLM protests happening, too, which is definitely not good for flattening the curve. Still, for all the news this weekend about a new surge in the south, like Florida and Texas, it's a bit misleading because most everyone gets tested for Covid before getting any treatment for anything, and a lot of medical checks have been delayed now for months, so...Anyway, these ppl seem to be asymptomatic of Covid even if they do have another problem they're seeking treatment for.
