I have no idea why I have decided to procrastinate on a blog for the first time in 3 years rather than the ways I usually do. Nonetheless here I am.
New to me: True Detective ends tonight, and I cannot wait. This is the most captivating thing I've seen in years, and I can't wait to see it wrap up. The atmosphere is great, I love the acting, and I love the small ways contemporary politics are woven into its dystopia. io9 has mentioned the school vouchers, but also the issue of forfeiture. The cops in the world of True Detective get a truck through forfeiture, just like in real life. See this report here by PBS.
Old favorites: S and I are rewatching Star Trek: The Next Generation on netflix. I particularly recommend the episode Symbiosis, which is a total 90s rumination on the War on Drugs. It is hilarious.
