The best part is watching Schmidt from New Girl dance to it while it plays.

SPOILERS

It's a chaotic season. All the time given to Mike and Gus is, I think, a total waste. It's not as solid as season 2 was. Or as any season of Breaking Bad (even when they were making it up as they went along (hello season 5 and the nazis)). Nacho is so much more interesting for this show than Mike is...I'm glad we got more of him for the last episodes but it seems a little late for the season...

Why did we have scenes with Mike doing construction work? I can't remember the context, it's as if I were sleepwatching when Mike is on...Last episode was very good, but we once again got an overlong scene with Mike. Now he's on the books. Ok. Does he care? Is he conflicted? He seems a little bothered but he's just stoic. They take for granted that Mike is cool. So they give him "cool" things to do with no story behind...

I'm talking a lot about this because it takes a lot of time, and I understand that they need to create links with Breaking Bad so they have to involve Mike and Gus more, but Nacho's story is linked to them and this is what I want...

The rest is rushed. The conflict between Jimmy/Chuck. Or how Howard suddenly can't support Chuck anymore. Or how Kim is avoiding her moral issues by working as hard as she can...I wish it felt more organic, but this season is a misshapen Lego. But the last episode was solid, and I am excited for the finale—even if I don't really know where they'll go since this season didn't have any real direction. Except a definitive breakup between Kim and Jimmy?

SPOILS S03E09


Pretty much agree with you, the one story I'm more invested is Kim's, but also Nacho's even thou we know that pill exchange will work wonders, it's just a matter if he will make it alive.

The Kim stuff was great, when she was driving after leaving Saul and Francesca I couldn't help to think that either of them should be driving her not because I anticipated the accident but so she could be at the car preparing for the meeting, and then boom, btw I loved how they showed us the car crashed, instead of the typically shot of some car approaching from the front right side door glass it cuts to her with several injuries in her face and probably a broken arm.


- I don't fully understand Kim's attitude. Does she work this hard to distance herself from Jimmy? It's not the money and it's not her career given how things are going. She could get help. So why put herself in that position? The whole situation with the car earlier in the episode was brilliant, and set the ending up perfectly.


Yes, I thought the same thing, she clearly can afford it now, it's the one thing that doesn't make much sense in an otherwise great season.

- We have really seen all the angles to prove that Chuck is as much as an asshole as Jimmy, because he only wants to win and be right and he doesn't care if he destroys everything to get there. That will probably be his downfall.


Agree, Chuck is an insufferable prick and Howard just got a taste of that.

I hope S3 finale is a little longer than usual because there's just so much going on:

* Kim. How her crash will affect her Mesa Verde account? This new one is done right?
* Saul. Will she cash in?
* Future Saul. He collapsed, there has to be something about that.
* Nacho vs Don Hector.
* Chuck vs HHM

Everyone still watching this? I am really enjoying this season in general but have mixed feelings over what's been happening to move story forward...

I think that given we all know the future (of some major characters at least), I'm anxious to understand how some of the current events get us there. The Mike/Fring stuff is pretty obvious, but the Jimmy/Chuck/Kim is far more interesting and in some ways unexpected.

- No way Jimmy gets that million dollars, but would be pretty sweet if he did and we get to see him riding high before the inevitable fall.

thanks to polkablues for designing the cover. the photo is a link.

this is the 11th Neon Burrito publication. we're still inventing our own reasons for this being worthwhile. the novelette at the beginning, titled Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, is the furthest i've yet explored the idea of prose writing within the self-proclaimed golden age of creative nonfiction. it's as unleashed as i've let myself be. the writing i speak of during the novelette is included as two fragments. one fragment is a single-sentence that's as long as the opening novelette. it's the furthest expression of anxiety i've performed within prose form. the other fragment is the beginning of the bizarro fiction novel i began writing, which was intended to be historical fiction about Mary, mother of Jesus. the final adult-kids' book we made because of passions and plans, and the plans didn't materialize but the passion remained.

i genuinely recommend my own book.

Game trailer:


I'd say Selick is a good fit.

Fans of beloved animator Henry Selick have been very patiently awaiting something new from the director since 2009’s “Caroline.”

Russo Brothers & Henry Selick Bringing ‘Little Nightmares’ To TV
via The Playlist

Fans of beloved animator Henry Selick have been very patiently awaiting something new from the director since 2009’s “Caroline.” Despite lining up a slew of projects — “Wendell And Wild,” “A Tale Dark & Grimm,” “The Shadow King” — nothing has come of them, but now something new on the horizon could finally see Selick’s talents on display once again.

THR reports that Anthony and Joe Russo (“Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War“) are developing and producing an adaptation of the video game “Little Nightmares,” with Selick directing the pilot and possibly other episodes as well.

The material sounds right up Selick’s alley, telling the story of nine year-old girl Six who is trapped at the bottom of the terrifying ship called Maw, and tires to escape while taking on villains such as the Janitor, the Twin Chefs and the Lady.
