Dorking Out Episode 41: Big Little Lies, Ghost In The Shell and S-Town

Leave a comment

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.

You can listen to Dorking Out here, or you can find us on iTunes and Stitcher. If you listen to the show, I’d love to hear what you think. You can comment here, or on our website or Facebook page.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
