Yeah, so, did you watch the series finale of “Big Little Lies?” I did, and I had a lot to say about it in this week’s Dorking Out.
I don’t want to spoil it here for you, just in case you haven’t watched the final episode yet, but I will say that a lot of TV series mistake a depressing ending for a powerful ending. This series doesn’t not fall into that, and gives viewers the ending they want, which made me love the series even more.
Also, “Big Little Lies” gave me this gif, which is pretty much perfectly describes every conversation I have with my mighty, mighty good man David.
Also, on this week’s podcast, we review the amazing new podcast “S-Town.” If you haven’t listened to it, you should listen to it. What starts as another true crime podcast turns into a fascinating story about death, sexual repression, mental illness and – well – illness. So many of the stories we get from Hollywood are based in LA, New York or Chicago, and involve cops, lawyers and doctors. There are a million stories to tell, and I’m glad that someone is telling one.
We also review the live-action remake of “Ghost In The Shell,” which is a shell of a movie, in my opinion. It’s pretty to look at, but doesn’t go beneath the surface and explore the ideas of what it means to be human when it should have. It was disappointing.
