The Fall

Marathoned The Falll, because of all of the good feedback it's goten. And, because of Gillian Anderson.

It's really good. Though it makes Belfast look like the worst city in the world to live in. I like that they make Anderson's character a sexual creature and not just The One Smart Cop.

I also like how self destructive they make the serial killer.

I could have done without the psycho husband side plot, but it plays into the #yesallwomen theme that the show is going for.

If you like Gillian Anderson and/or police procedurals it's worth a look.

I Fully Support #WhedonBeforeWhedon

Unless you habituate horror film forums like I do you may have not noticed the new hashtag  #WhedonBeforeWhedon. But you should.

The deal is it refers to the fact that Netflix has recently added, in some regions, the 1984 movie "Night Of The Comet" - and it is essentially a Buffy episode created years before Buffy existed.

When I  started to see the hashtag a couple days ago I remembered the film  - and remembered loving it - but thought that it could not possibly be as good as I remembered it from when I was 16.

Then I watched it again tonight and, yep, it is just as good - and it deserves the hashtag  #WhedonBeforeWhedon.
