    Lotsa criticism that GOT's 90-minute non-stop battle was dark (literally). But the theme of the episode was that night eternal was on the verge of overtaking the world, so isn't darkness the appropriate mode for the cinematography?
    Anyway, what were the complainers wanting... slower and brighter scenes so we could see the blood and gore a little longer and in more detail?
    Me, I was glued to the screen throughout and thought the episode conveyed the raw frenzy and fog of war effectively.
    Maybe Atticus should weigh in here. He teaches such stuff after all!

    Can you imagine what the moon landing would have elicited were Twitter available in 1969?

    poor phrasing on my part: in the history of twitter that's the most tweets for a TV show (as opposed to most tweets period, although I have no idea what's superior)

    Dead to Me
    Original Netflix series, new this month
    10 episodes of 28-33 minutes each
    Stars Christina Applegate & Linda Celdurini (sp??)
    Dark Comedy Drama

    \Plot centers on two 40-45ish women, Jen & Judy, who meet at a "grief support" group.
    Jen's husband was just killed by a hit and run driver.
    Jen's fiancee is "gone", she tells the group!

    Finding out Judy is homeless, and staying temporarily at the old age home where she works, offers her her guest house for an indefinite stayy!

    They become fast friends!

    That's when the fun begins!!

    As the episodes unfold, secrets are revealed by both women.

    How they deal with these secrets is what makes this show work!!

    Easy to follow, but heavily tangled in layers of secrecy and deceit!

    It's very popular, and a 2nd season is already being considered!

    \I give it two thumbs up!!

    Watched all 10 episodes (5 hours) in one day!
    And going to watch them again--soon!!

    I teach this stuff too, and while it truly doesn't matter what I think, I do agree w your take on this (but I will guess that many viewers are trained to expect 'slower and brighter' by lots of their other movies/tv). And I am always interested in what Atticus has to say on these things, so I hope he weighs in on this.
