Had this stranded in a tab for weeks, finally cued it up just now. Good stuff:
Season 4, episode 3, “The Final Problem.” It’s up there with X-Files‘ 3.20 / “Jose Chung’s ‘From Outer Space,” now. So amazing. Five or six pics that I think sum it up:
Looks to be halfway between, say . . . The Void and Coherence, maybe? Either way, I’m game. Thanks to Matt Pridham for the headsup.

For the first time ever, I kept a running tab of the best of every month:
It’s not everything I read/watch/listened to. Just the stuff I dug.
And? I had this big idea that I’d peel back through all those, dither and negotiate about which is actually my favorite whatever of the year. But what I’m right-now finding? I like to remember better, on the idea that if it was good, I’ll remember it.
Feel like I’m posting this too early, as I might get blown away by some movie X over the next five days. But I’ve got ten minutes right now, can get these down and in order, I think—with the caveat that I’ve yet to see Hounds of Love or Raw or Prevenge or Super Dark Times or Boys in the Trees, all of which I’m fairly certain would place in this list. Thing is? I would have had time and mind to cue all those up, except this past couple of months I’ve been burning through just so many of the golden age slashers all over again, for a slasher I’m (re)writing.
I mean, first, yeah, loved it, clapped at the end, c’mon: of course. Best part? All the younguns in the audience laughing and talking to the screen. New hope indeed.
Second, couple of good links:
