THINGS. ARE. HAPPENING. An episode devoted to Looking Glass (Tim Blake Nelson) pulls together a few more threads on Watchmen, bringing us closer to the answers about Will’s grand conspiracy. This is the best episode of Watchmen yet, in no small part thanks to Nelson who gives us the most laid-back, laconic performance of anxiety ever. Full Story

In case you think Martin Scorsese vs. Marvel is the worst, most pointless ongoing argument on Film Twitter, allow me to introduce you to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. It has been going strong for two years and counting, ever since Justice League was released with significant material added by Joss Whedon following Zack Snyder’s departure from the film Full Story

A co-worker of mine shared a Watchmen theory this week that Looking Glass, the masked detective played by Tim Blake Nelson, could be a secret racist like (maybe) Judd. That sounds entirely logical to me, because through four episodes Tim Blake Nelson hasn’t done a whole lot, and you do not hire an actor of Tim Blake Nelson’s caliber unless he is, eventually, going to do something spectacular. Full Story

Disney+ arrived with fanfare, technical problems, and its flagship series, The Mandalorian. But after The Mandalorian was over, I started digging into the various menus on Disney+ to see what else I might want to watch—the National Geographic “channel” is full of interesting stuff— and I found a short on the Pixar menu called Forky Asks a Question. Full Story

Knives Out premiered last night, and that extremely good cast showed up, looking extremely good. I am missing Lakeith Stanfield, an underrated hottie, but check out Chris Evans in that winter white suit with the striped knit tie. I stared at this suit in close zoom for a long time, trying to determine if the pattern is just a tone-on-tone stripe or, gasp, CORDUROY, and after much staring and some googling, it is, yes, CORDUROY. Full Story

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be the first Marvel television show to hit Disney+ next fall. Well, it will be the first new Marvel television show, you can find The Inhumans on Disney+ now. Remember The Inhumans? No? That’s okay, no one does! I’m actually surprised it’s there, I assume Kevin Feige and the people of Marvel Studios—who did not participate in television development until now—would rather everyone forget about misfires like The Inhumans. Full Story

The Crown season 3 drops this Sunday on Netflix. Early reviews are really good. It’s not like I expect a drop in quality, not from one of the most lavish and meticulously crafted dramas on television. I just wonder whether or not the issues currently surrounding the real Windsors will have any Full Story
