Truculent TV Summaries



Game of Thrones: Nothing means anything, but in a really complicated way. That’s how you know it’s realistic.

Mad Men: Everyone’s clothes are super on point, and they’re dead inside. That’s how you know it’s realistic.

Breaking Bad: If you make enough bad choices, you become the villain. That’s how you know it’s morally realistic.

The Wire: Everyone is bad, but also good, but there are institutions, so everything is bad. That’s how you know it’s realistic.

Hannibal: The self is a fractured organ that speaks in symbols, mostly about how it wants friends, but only has murder. PS, sometimes animals can be symbols, like dogs. Do you like dogs?

And then I rubbed all the wood with tung oil, so it was rich and dark. It even smelled good. You know, you put your nose in it and breathed in… it was perfect.”

Heartbreakingly beautiful …
