The ending of Rectify was fittingly graceful. What a great show.

Indeed. It's a shame to have it end but they went out perfectly.

Please Like Me is one of my favorite shows. It's so weird and funny and charming. Glad Hulu picked it up ... at least for another season (which I think has already aired in Australia).

Has anyone checked out The OA yet?

The series was created by actress Brit Marling and her frequent director collaborator Zal Batmanglij (brother of Vampire Weekend's Rotsam). The two previously worked together on Sound Of My Voice and The East.

Anyway, this arrived over the weekend in mysterious fashion, with almost no pre-release hype. For some reason it's getting compared to Stranger Things, because both are from Netflix and have paranormal content. Four episodes in and I have found this far more fascinating, as it's considerably more original and not trafficking in 80s nostalgia. It's not as "fun" and a more difficult watch because information is released slowly, but definitely more of a mindfuck if you're into that sort of thing.

There's a huge transition about 3/4 of the way through the first episode (when the credits finally appear), and I have to say it was one of the most exhilarating moments I've ever experienced watching television. As if a world of possibilities suddenly opened up. I really have no idea where the rest of this is going but I'm totally on board.

I've heard mixed things about it, but another friend raved about it this morning, so maybe I'll check it out.

I've now watched the first two seasons of Black Mirror, as well as the Christmas episode.

Mostly, it's great stuff. Strong satire, great direction and acting. There's enough skill involved that egregiously soapy episodes like The Entire History of You wind up not feeling all that melodramatic in the end. And The Waldo Moment really is frightening in hindsight, isn't it? The episode itself is kind of a mess, but so portentous. Again, certain very strong aspects keep the whole thing from going off the rails.

The crown jewel of the series so far, however, is Fifteen Million Merits. What a monster of an episode that is. Right at the center is a bit of light, love and authenticity. Those are the stakes. What happens to it is what makes your stomach churn. There's so much attention that went into crafting every detail of the episode's aesthetic, from the score, to the avatars, to the interactive panels...it's like a cross between the Wii menu and Requiem for a Dream. It's a very absorbing episode and that goes a long way to making it so suffocatingly nightmarish. And I don't use that term lightly; it really gives off this helpless, sorrowful tone that's also frighteningly uncanny. I've had nightmares that felt exactly like watching this episode. It feels very real and plausible, but you don't want it to be.

Interesting, in that The Entire History of You is considered by many to be the best of those first two seasons.

There's not a bad one in the bunch, IMO.

Any thoughts on the Xmas episode, with THE HAMM? I thought it was fantastic.
