I love how this one just 'fell off the truck' and posted Friday, two days ahead of it's Sunday airing. Of course that means I am going to have to watch it today and wait 10 days for Episode 3. This show is so good and so thoughtful that I need to see where it is going. Ed Harris is very good and very scary at the 'Man in Black'. I have the feeling he is a sentient A.I. who is off the leash and is looking to find and kill his maker for all the pain he put him through in his life.
Now I just read that HBO released this episode two days early to give back to the viewers who went crazy for Episode 1.
I am really excited to see where this one goes. I hope they just don't do a repeat on Sunday but make episodes 2 AND 3 available for Sunday night. That would be very cool. I can't wait. This show is perfect for binging not waiting. I HAVE to know what happens next.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
