Crop And Save
The Flight Attendant (2020)
Season 1 = Pretty smart psychological drama disguised as a comedy thriller
I see this show getting a lot of hate, but through season 1 at least, the psychological trauma portrayed here rings very true to me.
The detachment, the selectively dishonest memories of her childhood and overcompensation that can come across as both needy and shallow, but is only just the disease of abuse passed on from parents to their children.
I find the comedic espionage and murder story a pretty enlightening metaphor to what it takes to overcome the emotional damage many are never forced to confront.
Here we have a character that would have surely continued her life in that fog had she not been forced to change and recognize her circumstances honestly.
It shouldn't work, but it does for me. I found it surprising and very entertaining.
Maybe season 2 is a different story. Hope not but, as of now, I'm looking forward.
Don't Look Up (2021)
Pop Goes The Bubble
Can we stop proving the point this movie makes fun of, and ultimately, helplessly concedes to? This satire is well enough deserved. Who should be ashamed? Maybe it should be hilarious how sadly unavoidable the reasons are that we all should be.
A comet is going to destroy a planet full of morons. Well, that makes sense. You can't throw a rock without hitting a cesspool in this s***show. Why take offense? It's not directed at any particular one of us. The stink is on us all. No one wants to own it? But it's undeniably true.
We are our own worst enemy. Tell me again who's fault it is? Oh, it's their fault. That thing everyone else should have seen while we were concerning ourselves with what? Has history taught us anything? We do still teach history, right? Can we still brainstorm here? Because apparently we're all imbeciles and only getting dumber by the second.
Can I please get a mirror? Anyone, anyone? Wait, what... no one has a mirror? But everyone has a rock to throw? Uhh... how does that happen? Who could have foreseen such a thing? I guess it is just so much bad luck from so many busted mirrors that we can no longer recognize ourselves, let alone each other, after all the s*** slinging. How thick does, let's say, "irony" have to get before it stinks to high heaven?
The people insulted by this movie are arguing with who? Oh, it's political! You don't say? Well then that makes it understandable, and what a great and dignified reason to not flush after taking a dump.
It's the labels that trigger the response, ultimately leading to no response, and how predictably triggered people do get. Pick a subject and wait for nothing but vitriol. Now, where's that Tool album? Ah, here it is... time for an Ænima.
The lack of conversation and self awareness in society is good for whom? Even more concerning is the lack of respect we have for ourselves or the respect and duty we once held for each other. This is what we call pride now? Is that what that smell is, or the gaseous odor of a society engorging itself on BS?. Duh... I don't know, but fear not my friends. Enlightenment is on the horizon.
This feel good story will ultimately come to an end when all our bubbles burst once and for all, and if one thing's for sure, if anything still matters, there will be a lot of dumbfounded people on all sides wondering WTH happened. How's that for salvation.
It's been real fun y'all and hallelujah! Lord help us and have a pleasant tomorrow.
CSI: Miami (2002)
"If he's Tom Brokaw, I'm Elliot Ness."
I love this show. It's a very guilty pleasure. I understand why many dislike it. It's over the top absurd. For me, it was like one of those things you hated the first time you tried it. Usually something that's just a little wrong. Alcohol, sex and tobacco come to mind. I watch this show the same way I once did all of those things, lighthearted and irresponsibly without forethought of consequences or taking it seriously enough.
It's a comic book, a colorful graphic noir full of superhero posing and one-liners. Horatio attempts to embody every flatfoot ever portrayed on TV and film, from Barney Fife to Philip Marlowe, all within a singular amalgam of personality. I think it's as fun as anything else that may be bad for the average person but for some, maybe that's what makes it all the more irresistible.
Have The Writers Ever Heard of a Vulcan?
Writing the legendary Spock as ignorant, slow, weak and submissive? I can overlook the artistic castration of human males, but Vulcan males? Even with half human Vulcan males, that's going too far. I couldn't care less about political ideology. I watch to be entertained and escape the reality either side imagines and ignores in their messaging. Please, enough already. Imagined or not, there is no reality where continuity and history doesn't matter. At least have the cojones to remain true to the story.
