I finished season 2 of Mindhunter. I thought season 2 was even better than season 1. Here is something I learned from Mindhunter. Ed Kemper recorded audio books in prison. I don't think they were ever commercially available but freebies recorded for the blind. Can you imagine having Ed Kemper read you Flowers In The Attic?

I finished Animal Kingdom Season 4. That was an awesome season but I almost think it should end and not go to season 5. I hope I'm wrong but I'm not sure they can fill the huge void left by
Ellen Barkin. She's just too good. As good as the rest of the cast is, there is still going to be a big void.
Agree!! I don't think
Dennis Leary has what it takes to step in, if that is the direction they go. Or a combo of him and Craig's dad trying to take over. It was a great season ender, though!

Did anyone here ever finish the entire series of Haven, based on The Colorado Kid?

I started watching it enthusiastically, and I was somewhere in Season 3 when for whatever reason I didn't continue. I think one of my problems at that point was that some of the 'troubles', the special powers the people have in town, became a bit silly. Although I'm not sure that's why I stopped.

I only have the first two seasons on DVD and there are five seasons - the last being a double season essentially which comes in two separate boxes. The dvd's have become fairly cheap at the moment, but is it worth it? Someone who watched all of it: were you satisfied with it overall?

I watched the first few episodes but it got really silly so I lost interest (similar to the TV series Under the Dome)

Finished all of Penny Dreadful. It's very hit and miss. Sometimes it's very adventurous and then it's extremely slow. The tone is all over the place: the first season is fairly disturbing, the second is more on the romantic side and in the third season they seem to want to get back more to the tone of the first.

Three seasons over they tell an interesting story, but there's hardly any pay off in the finale. Especially the very last episode is very disappointing -- the main villain behind it all just kind of disappears at the end, as if they still want to be able to bring him back. There is no real pay-off to it all. Still it says The End.

The cast and the overall look of it is very good though. And sometimes the combination of the different characters make for interesting storylines.

Mrs. Amworth, cool vampire short with Glynis Johns,

Wow! She's quite the driver isn't she? Can I count this one on the SKMB October Horror Movie Marathon?

I remember Glynis Johns from Mary Poppins (she was the Mom) and also in "While You Were Sleeping".

I always thought it had to be a wooden stake!

I guess it can be counted as a point in the movie marathon, I'm gonna put it down as viewing so you should too. Not always neesy, there's various ways to dispatch those pesky varmints :bat:

I'm watching old episodes of 90210 and How I Met Your Mother. They remind me of a simpler time when I didn't have a care in the world. Just taking a break from reading. I read at least 12 books last summer, including 5 of Stephen King's novels.
