Not sure when that happened.....

Re: Scream Queens (FOX) -- Season 2 Thread -- 9/20/16

Loved the first season - but that second season was dreadful.
I love the cast, but man that S02 quality dropoff was brutal.

Re: Annihilation (2018, D: Alex Garland) S: Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac

Re: The Ritual (D: Bruckner) S: Spall, Ali, James-Collier, Troughton, Reid -- Netflix

Love the show - via Netflix. Wish Comcast had an HD POP in my area, but for me it's just SD.

Re: The Kominsky Method (Netflix) S: Michael Douglas, Alan Arkin, C: Chuck Lorre

Enjoyed the show overall - and it really was gold when Douglas and Arkin were onscreen together. Nice mix of real-life cameos and roles by name actors (though I had a problem getting past...

brainee - other than some of his short stories I would recommend 'Head Full of Ghosts' also from Tremblay. I'd say either will give you his style rather cleanly.
