    Lol. What I spent most of the time doing was standing on the field as the third base coach for one of the scenes that will be used in the finale, and it was filmed over and over from multiple angles. So, I told one of my buddies about it after. Well, in last night's episode, the "third base coach" for the Barons was bound and gagged in the trunk of that car. My buddy texted me last night, "Did they make you wear a fat suit, too?!" Dude, no. That was not me. I mean, that guy was also bald. Thanks a lot!

    Has anybody else watched 13 Reasons Why?

    I haven't binged on a show in quite some time, but that one really hit me hard. Here's the Trailer. Personally: Huge fan of the message and the intent behind the show.

    I actually just finished it yesterday. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. Definitely a good message and really important for people to understand what high school is like if you aren't in a popular group.

    That said,
    I was hoping for some twists or alterations on perspective. At the end of the day, the kid was a huge pussy the whole time didn't make any moves on the girl when she was obviously throwing herself at him. Then, when he did, she freaked out and shut down. And then quietly blamed him. The plot made me angry and the fact that she made a bunch of tapes blaming everyone(granted, they were all shitty people) and not actually doing anything about it until the day she offed herself was a huge letdown.

    I feel that the portrayal of high school life and the feeling of alienation is fairly accurate. But the plot bothered me.

    Brockmire.

    Did anybody watch last week's episode? Jules left Charles (the teenager) in charge of the field while she was away. While left alone with the keys to a minor league ballpark he promptly:
    - turned on the PA system and just said "Titties. Titties, titties, titties!" into the mic
    - had sex (or tried) in the press box
    - watched the outfield grass catch fire

    Tomorrow night is the season finale, and features "the big game" moment, including this clip:
    http://www.ifc.com/shows/brockmire/video-extras/season-01/episode-08/drunk-love

    One of the things I enjoyed in watching the whole production up close were some of the technical filmmaking things they did. That particular scene was filmed over two days, with different camera set ups. As you can imagine when you're outdoors for that many hours in the Georgia Summer, the clouds and light are coming and going. You can see in the clip, that they did a pretty good job of making it look like there were no shadows (until the end). So, if you're watching, keep an eye on how well they do that. For those up-close dialogue scenes, they were able to bring in and move around this huge scrim (?) to block the sun - obviously, they couldn't do that in the baseball action scenes. That effected which takes they used, too. (Also, keep an eye out for how the 3rd base umpire is a dumpy white dude, until he has dialogue. Then he's a tall, black dude (Al Mitchell - nice guy, retired from IBM in Atlanta, and now a professional actor).

    It's a great show, and I'm really enjoying it. I hope they get picked up for a second season.

    Is anybody watching (or already finished) Ozark on Netflix? I'm on episode 3. It's very compelling. It's a bit like Breaking Bad meets Justified.

    The wife and I just finished it, dark as hell but compelling tv, certainly isn't afraid to take chances.

    Just another example of why regular network tv is dying.

    I'd give it 9/10

    I was trying to think of another word besides "dark" when I was describing it to a friend. Because, Breaking Bad was definitely dark, just looking at the subject matter itself. But, the tone of BB as a show wasn't dark. Ozark definitely is. And, a little deviant. If there's a word that describes dark + deviant + compelling, then that's the word to use.
