Black Sails recs

Both have spoilers for all four seasons.

A place of our own: Anne heals and adjusts to the new world, post show. Great Anne Bonny exploration, and her relationships with both Max and Jack are well presented.



Letters of Marque: brief messages written between Thomas, Miranda and James at different points of their lives. Short and heartbreaking.

The Americans 5.11.

Watching a show about Russian spies set in the 80s is increasingly weird when contrasted with the current day reality. If only the KGB had known back then how incredibly easy it is to get the entire Republican party to do their bidding…

Better Call Saul 3.06.

In which there's no Mike, but we're still back to parting screen time between the lawyer and the drug world side. No sweat, thoug, it's all good, man.

American Gods 1.03

Aka the one with Salim, the Ifrit, and the subsequently imitated by life bank robbery.

Doctor Who 10.05.

This was good, not solely for the dynamics, but for the overall episode content. Also, is this shaping up to be the most overtly leftist season since Seven's day, or what?

The Americans 5.10

This was a bit of an odd episode for me, full of fragments from stories that did almost, but not quite fit together.

More beneath the cut )

American Gods 1.02.

Which to this reader was great, but also makes me wonder what on earth show-only people make of it, because a self contained episode, this was not.

Spoilers for episode and book )

American Gods 1.01.

The long awaited Fuller/Gaiman offspring just debuted, and thanks to Amazon Prime, I can watch it without having to wait.

It's impossible for me to review sans spoilers for the book, though. I just tried, and it's stumping me in every other sentence, so I won't. Show only viewers, beware! There be book spoilers beneath the cut.

Bates Motel: Season and show finale

"I lingered round them, under that benign sky; watched the moths fluttering among the heath, and hare-bells; listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass; and wondered how any one could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth."
