  • The Old Ain’t Dead Top 10 of 2015

    The Old Ain’t Dead Top 10 of 2015

    Old Ain’t Dead just me, watching whatever looks good. To me. I don’t watch everything. I don’t have a “best of 2015” list because I don’t have a clue as to what most of 2015 had to offer, much less what the best of all that would be. Yet here we are, at the end […]

    33 Experts and Me Share Notable Female Characters

    I read a wonderful article called 33 Experts Share Their Notable Female Characters Of Recent Years at Bang2Write. Bang2Write asked screenwriters, directors, literary agents and other industry pros to talk about the female characters they thought were most important in recent years. The names they mentioned were absolute favorites of mine: Carrie from Homeland, Kalinda […]

  • The Fall S2 E6 What is in me Dark Illumine

    The Fall S2 E6 What is in me Dark Illumine

    The Fall ends season 2 with a 90 minute episode. Whether this is really the end is up for debate in the last few seconds of the episode. Until then we have a very satisfactory accumulation of evidence for putting Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) in prison forever.

  • The Fall, S2 E5: The Perilous Edge of Battle

    The Fall, S2 E5: The Perilous Edge of Battle

    The Fall episode 5 is called “The Perilous Edge of Battle.” Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) has fallen. If the police can produce the evidence, he’ll be out of circulation forever. It’s one of the tensest and most nail-biting episodes in this suspense-filled series. Here are the basics of the episode. Spoilers everywhere. Paul goes through […]

    The Fall S2 E4: The Mind is its Own Place

    Episode 4 of The Fall begins with the forensics people digging through DS Stella Gibson’s (Gillian Anderson) hotel room. They take her computer and her dream diary to examine for clues. As this is happening, Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) is reading her diary from the photographs he took. It isn’t even my diary and his […]

    The Fall, S2 E3: Beauty Hath Strange Power

    Episode 3 of The Fall is patient waiting for the police to gather up enough evidence against Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) to make an arrest. The police slowly put together clues as the episode plays out. There’s also stark terror at what Paul Spector may do next. For once, an episode isn’t all terrifying: there’s […]

  • The Fall, S2 E2: Night Darkens the Street

    The Fall, S2 E2: Night Darkens the Street

    The tension is unbearable and scary as hell in episode 2 of The Fall. Season 1 was more cerebral. Now the tension is mounting, and the danger has gone way up. There are spoilers. The music, the pace, and Jamie Dornan’s performance as a menacing killer make everything about this episode terrifying. The music is […]

    The Fall S2 E1: These Troublesome Disguises

    The BBC’s The Fall season 2 is now on Netflix. I’m going to review one episode a day until all 6 episodes are recapped. There are lots of spoilers. A Quick Review of Season 1 Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) is called to Belfast, Northern Ireland, to help the police with the murders of […]
