Lumberjack Dexter for the win. Have they established who the psycho killer he will be chasing down is yet? Does he still have a stash of medical equipment from his previous job as a spatterist? Have any of his previous kills washed up on the shores of Martha's Vineyard yet?

Haha, my Halloween costume the year of the Dexter finale was Lumberjack Dexter, as an ironic act of criticism against the worst season (and finale) of a TV show I've ever seen in my life.

Well, it's kind of a fresh start, but a few lingering threads from the old seasons are there too. And honestly, the filmmaking is beautiful, and Michael C. Hall seems refreshed and just eating up the role. He has an absolutely incredible performance in the final scenes. The snowy small town is perfect for a murder show, and all of the annoying useless side characters are nowhere to be found (though to be honest, if they showed up I'd be kind of excited, for old time's sake.)

That sounds like a great Halloween costume - and an easy one pull off. It's more or less the look I aim for these days myself every day so it does sound like cheating a bit - plus (as was pointed out recently by someone on the radio) Halloween isn't a fancy dress party - it's a Halloween party - so you you're supposed to dress up like a witch or a zombie. But since Dexter is technically a serial killer I suppose you can be excused.

The last two seasons did suck and the ending was a bit what the fuck was that. I remember them announcing they had a really great way to wrap the series up in S6 and then when we got to it then it was like - was that it? But maybe their plan all along was to bring Dexter back in this new form? If so then I think fair play to them. I'm sure it'll be a lot easier for Dexter to get away with murdering whoever he wants up there in the hillbilly hills of wherever it is.

So am I going to see you in the background somewhere chopping up logs in this series in the future then?

I would have loved to be an extra, but it looks like they did not film this anywhere near NYC. Maybe a future season if they decide to keep changing locations.

I can write a book about the problems of Dexter in the final few seasons. I used to regularly rant about it on AV Club (where the final season reviews are legendary.)

This was definitely not their plan all along, or at least I assume, as the cursed name of Scott Buck (showrunner during the worst seasons and huge moron) is nowhere to be found on the new season.

I think a great experience in life is when you don't like something the first time but then you love it the second time.

This is what's happening with me and Better Call Saul.

It is every bit as good as Breaking Bad. So good.

I'm also watching this British gameshow called Wipeout where people fall of rubber balls into mud and stuff like that.

Calibre (2018)
Two guy's head up into the Highlands (of Scotland) for a stag weekend - to go deer stalking and end up upsetting the locals a little bit - not a bad wee thriller

The Bad Batch is nuts - quite dark and disturbing - trippy - surreal - Mad Max: The Charles Manson Years. Cool soundtrack. Not much else to way about it other than they don't say much in it. I'd be tempted to give it a 9/10 if it weren't for the short segment in the middle where Keanu Reeves is a massive twat. Nothing against the guy in real life he seems like a decent person - just has a habit of getting in the way in some films.

I enjoyed the JJ Abrams UFO documentary series. The subject is taken more seriously since the New York Times article in 2017 though it's still a minefield. Jeremy Corbell, James Fox, George Knapp and Ross Coulthard have great documentaries on the subject.

Cannot say enough good stuff about Better Call Saul, every bit as brilliant as Breaking Bad. One more season to go.

Curb season 11 is good Larry

Finally watching the X-Men movies. You know, what can you say, good enough.

Midnight Mass was not perfect, but it was excellent. Highly recommend.
