    Oh, and I want to post this about the Episode 1 incident:

    BIG TIME SPOILER, DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU'VE SEEN EPISODE #1

    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Omg! Lol!! That was an awesome narrative of that episode. I love this show! I ended up binging on it rather than pacing like I wanted to. I must admit I hadn't read into it about the latter situation mentioned in your spoiler. Honestly, I think you should be writing web content - movie reviews and articles. No lie! That was a good read! >.<

    I just posted that Note on my FB account, if you still have access. (Some people here do.)

    Now I have a girl crush on Molly Parker. Arggg.



    She is so awesome -- and on the show, Jackie Sharp is hard-assed without being sociopaths like Claire and Frank.

    I liked the second season as much as I liked the first.

    I finished Season 2 a couple weeks ago and I like it, but it's not as good as True Detective. I think part of it is believability. I feel like it's just too improbable for anyone to actually pull off everything Frank pulls off in the first two seasons. Every plan of his that works is the equivalent of winning the lottery. The real political maneuvering inside the Beltway is more about incompetence and dumb luck than masterminding some grand plan.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Now that I've finally finished the show, here's my big question/musing:



    As for what's coming up...
    ~ g e t f e s t i v e ! ~


    EJCC: "The Big Questions in my life right now: 1) What am I willing to live with? 2) What do I have to live with? 3) What can I change for the better?"
    Coriolis: "Is that the ESTJ Serenity Prayer?"

    Also a quick thought on Doug:
