Let’s Be Honest, True Detective, eps 7-8

indexHi Readers,

So if you followed my other posts onĀ True Detective you’ll know that I began because of two reasons, the first of which was that I had been emphatically informed by two British strangers at Comic-Con that my life was incomplete, not just as a television fan, but as a person, having not seen the series, and the Emmys were approaching, and True Detective was getting some incredible awards buzz, rivaling other shows (ie Breaking Bad) that I found to be, for lack of a better or more technical phrase, really awesome.

So, after finishing the series was it good, was it worthy of the buzz, yes. Do I now feel whole as a TV viewer and human being, not so much, but with all the existentialism I ended up being exposed to, I certainly feel like I’m in a good place, so to speak.

Believing Lies!True Detective eps 2&3

imHi Readers,

If you’re aware, a couple days ago I FINALLY started watching True Detective. I’m binging so that I can be caught up by the Emmys on Monday. Last night, I watched episodes 2&3, and I have to say, so far my favorite thing about the show, on top of the great writing and acting is how much each of the main characters, Cohle and Hart lie to themselves.

What the Helix Podcast 6, Square the Circle

What the Helix Podcast 6Hi listeners,

This week on Helix we got lots of answers, and even more questions. On the podcast we heavily discussed why we’re loving to hate Constance Sutton, why we hate that we won’t get #BANANA, as well as venturing into biomedical questions about the purposes of the virus and genetics with an example of how people with sickle cell anemia are able to survive malaria. Below the screenshots of key moments is a link to an article about about, that is much more scientific, and much less rambly than Shannon’s theories and thoughts about the virus.

What the Helix Podcast 5 Double Trouble!

What the Helix Day 6 Banner

Hi Listeners, On this most recent episode of Helix, we actually think we got more answers than questions, and while last week our podcasters Jeremy and Shannon were trusting Hatake more, Shannon seems to have talked herself out of it, and at this point the most trustworthy person is probably Peter, since he’s kind of frozen, though Daniel seems to be trying hard just to do the right thing… even in Balleseros is still alive.

What the Helix Podcast 3 Awww Rats

What the Helix P 3Hi Listeners,
Here’s the third What the Helix, where we discuss the episode Single Strand. In this podcast we address: Why we still sort of trust Peter, why we don’t like Balleseros, what the virus may do, and why you don’t want to mess with Hatake! Continue reading “What the Helix Podcast 3 Awww Rats” »
