Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

I can't endorse or recommend the US Love Island reality series. And most of the episodes are utter mindless crap but damn, tonight's episode was top notch TV.

The premise of the show is that a group of random men and women are "paired" up to find love. Well after several weeks of getting to know each other, the producers in a surprise twist, split the men and women and isolate the men to a duplicate "Love Island" and introduce new group of women to the men and new group of men to the women. The idea is to test the various original relationships. A week later (tonight), each person gets to decide if they want to couple up with a person from the new group or keep their original partner. Neither original partner knows what choice the other will make.

Tonight the results were revealed along with all the resulting drama. The fireworks were glorious.

Episode 3 of Lovecraft country was so bad that I almost quit watching it but 4 was a little better and 5 was pretty good. Not sure how I feel about the show. It really isn't going anywhere right now

Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

thanks for the Lovecraft update. spouse and i finished ep3 last night and it was def a departure from the previous two...was wondering where it might go.
i haven't read a ton of Lovecraft but wasn't he all about writing short stories? the episode format of modern tv is tailor-made to using that large body of work as inspiration.
does anybody know if the theme of the episodes references any of his written work?

wow...watched ep4 of Lovecraft last night and it just didn't do it for me. probably my least favorite of the four so far. i'm sure we'll watch at least a few more but i'm not very optimistic.

If you enjoy true crime stuff, the 3-part miniseries Deswas very, very good, and Tennant was fantastic as Dennis Nilsen, a Scottish serial killer. The case, and especially his confession, are pretty bizarre.
