Re: PIC S1: Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2

William B on May 16, 2020:

“It does seem likely that eventually some of Trump's brazenness will bite him in a way that seems to do some actual harm to him (getting sick, for instance), but probably he will just continue until then, and he'll just be invincible until the moment he isn't.”

It’s amazing how prescient this comment sounds now.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

I really wish the hardcore fans who hate TLJ wouldn't assume all hardcore fans agree with them. We don't.

Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 2 (April Fools Version)

The was the series finale I've ever seen that I found completely satisfying (okay, the final episode of The Shield was good).

I don't know why I didn't find the whole higher power thing annoying when, as an atheist, I should have. I mean, usually reject such stuff right off the bat. In this case, though, the narrative was so powerful that I just went with it.

Sure, there were a lot of things that were not explained (well, not completely), but who cares? Most sophisticated fiction takes place in the viewer's head, not on the screen - and, for me, clear-cut, pat resolutions are for the weak minded. This is a character-based drama, so the important thing is how the characters react to the unexplained.

If you want clear explanations, watch any dull-witted episode of Law and Order, for pete's sake. Procedural crime shows are great with resolutions and explanations - and boring as hell.
