    She is a fantastic writer.

    Margaret Atwood wrote one of my favorite poems:

    you fit into me
    like a hook into an eye

    a fish hook
    an open eye


    Handmaid's Tale is on my list of things to watch/read. And now so is Alias Grace.

    It's the only show that I've found too disturbing to marathon.

    I finally (super late) got into Shameless. My husband likes it too, so we can watch it together....we usually don't like much of the same shows so it is awesome.

    I love Shameless. My girlfriend has just started watching it and I'm totally happy to re-watch all of the seasons with her.

    Which one?
    I just ordered Alias Grace on Amazon. Even tho I'm on episode 4, I really want to read the book now.

    Non_Saepe quote made me curious about her other stuff.

    HAHAHA. Make sure you appreciate the evolution of the characters. It's so strange to see Season 1 compared to the newer season.


    I just bought my daughter a shirt similar to this for Christmas

    Eh she finally got her peace from the one guy who actually felt bad about the horrible way he treated her. The whole show is about being gaslit and abused by men in different ways.

    I couldn't get through the pilot of that show.

    Hot Take: Fear The Walking Dead is much better than The Walking Dead

    What does Hot Take mean? And what am I missing about Fear the Walking Dead? I couldn't make it past 3 episodes.

    A hot take is a controversial opinion. I think The Walking Dead is one of the worst shows I've ever seen. The whole show is about waiting to see who dies, it's like a weird drama version of a game show that relies on chance. Fear The Walking Dead managed to develop some very interesting characters and handles a lot of cultural concepts pretty well.

    Very Interesting about FTWD. I'll probably give it another chance eventually. I love TWD comic and therefore love the show by association. I really love zombies, though. So much so, that I have brutally killed a zombie version of everyone I love in my nightmares at least twice. (I have some really vivid and disturbing night terrors.)

    I AM getting a little bored with the show, however. My OCD won't let me abandon it though. MUST FINISH SERIES.

    I just finished Alias Grace. I really enjoyed it. I am not an adventurous television watcher (I've been watching the episodes of Roseanne over and over since 1988) so I am very happy with the suggestions so far. I liked the ending. But I feel like a bit downtrodden about it.

    I made it through like maybe 3 episodes of FTWD and I couldn't take it anymore. I fucking LOVE The Walking Dead though.

    I'm just bored by it. I think it has some of the worst characters on TV, and the writing is basically mostly filler between character deaths. There are way too many episodes where absolutely nothing happens.

    And what's with this Jadis and her trash people? Have they forgotten how to talk in the couple of years since the zombies showed up?

    I like that she's taking pictures of Rick with a non-Polaroid camera. There are still Fotomats in the Zombie apocalypse? Is she gonna hop on down to Walgreens to get them developed?
