Show recommendation: Utopia

Utopia is a new (6 episode) mini-series on the UK’s Channel 4, dealing with a group of people who come together through their interest in a graphic novel called “The Utopia Experiments” and subsequently their lives are torn apart.

Only one (beautifully shot and directed!) episode has aired so far, and I was really taken in by it. It’s weird, chilling, and violent. There are comic books, conspiracy theories, corrupt government officials, and sociopaths. I could explain it better, but I went into episode one knowing absolutely nothing about it besides what I’ve written here and that made it all the more enjoyable. 

Just a reminder that Justified is back. 

I have hardly any time for Netflix anymore. It sucks. Over the past week the girls watched lots and lots Avatar: The Last Airbender, Joey finished season one of Workaholics, and I decided to reminisce with Adrian Monk during a bout with insomnia. Other than that: 

War of The Arrows - I keep telling you guys how great Korean films are…I wonder if you’re listening? This one is a period piece and it’s pretty damn good. The characters are actually developed; the action sequences are not over the top, but impressive nonetheless; and the story is solid. [5/5]

Teen Wolf - I decided to start watching this because of Tumblr. I’ve seen so many gifs and macros on my dash, from people that I believe have pretty solid taste, that I gave it a shot. Then I realized that I watched the first two episodes when they first aired but completely forgot them because they made no impression on me either way. On rewatch, they still haven’t, but I’ve started episode three now so we’ll see how it goes. So far I give it a [3/5].

I’ve been sick for the past two days with some awful sort of bug that caused me to attempt to throw up my intestines every half an hour and in between toilet hugging, writhe around on my bed moaning and praying to a God I don’t believe in to make it all just stop. The one thing that kept me going? Workaholics. 

I’d seen .gifs of the show here on Tumblr that amused me, but it wasn’t until it showed up in my Netflix recommendations that I decided to give it a go. Two episodes in and I was officially a fan. Holy friggin’ hilarious, Batman. Some eps are funnier than others, but there are at least two cry-laugh moments in each. 

Only season one is on Netflix Instant Watch, but there are plenty of sites where you can stream season two online. Season three premieres May 29th.

[5/5]

Ever since I purchased Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray last week, I’ve been raving about it. It’s amazing. I’ve never recommend a DVD or a blu-ray or anything like that, so it’s been a bit odd, but I’m talkative when I’m excited, so…

I’m a long-time fan of the books and loved the show, but I wasn’t sure about buying it, and contemplated it for a for a few days before taking the plunge. When I saw that it was only 35$ at Target, I had to!

I enjoyed the series even more, watching it this second time, than I did when it aired. I ran every episode back to back to back while the girls were at their dad’s for the weekend and was blown away again, by the scale, the acting, and the attention to detail. 

As far as the blu-ray itself - the packaging is lovely, with great photographs of the main characters, a map of Westeros, and more. The picture is gorgeous, color and contrast perfect. The sound is also great, really coming to life in the scenes at The Wall, especially. But let’s get to what I REALLY LOVE. The bonus features!

Each episode has the option of an “in-episode guide”. It floats lightly to the right of the screen, transparent when not in use, and blinking slightly whenever new information is unlocked during the episode. The guide tracks where you are in the episode and offers in depth background on characters, places, and more. You can choose to either read information without leaving the episode, and if you do choose listen to one of the actors read a voice over while watching beautiful illustrations of the story they’re telling, when it’s over it takes you back to the exact moment in the show you were on. 

The ASOIAF world is incredibly complex, and can be hard to follow for even seasoned veterans of the legendarium. For anyone who needs a refresher, or for new fans that just want to learn more without reading the books, this guide is amazing. The information is available outside of the in-episode guide as well.

Other extras include fantastic featurettes - including a great one of the creation of the Dorthraki language, and commentary tracks, one of which is a solo track of the master himself, George R.R. Martin. There are also easter eggs to be found. :)

There was so much time and effort poured into this set. I’ve purchased quite a few films this year, and have been disappointed with the extras each and every time. TV Shows are usually even worse. I remember reading back before GoT aired that HBO was hoping on making most of the money invested in this show back in home video sales. I think they definitely created something here worthy of that.

If you’re not watching this show, you should be. It’s…different. It’s good! I was a huge fan of Nip/Tuck, so of course I was on board when I heard he was developing another show for FX. 

Basically this family lives in a terribly haunted house, and every single character is a total character. The marriage stuff is getting a little tedious, but Dylan McDermott is SO HOT and Coach’s Wife Connie Britton is so lovely, I can deal with it. 

I’m excited to see what happens each week, and it’s genuinely suspenseful, unlike other shows. *cough*The Walking Dead*cough*
