so I can go out later.
To pay for the new electronics.
So my TV died and I had to buy a flat screen finally. But my DVD player was too low in resolution so I had to get an upgrade. I can now play my one Bluray disc. Look at it with its menu! Its beautiful!
"Sons of Perdition follows three boys after they leave Colorado City. With limited educations and rarely a stable address, the obstacles are enormous. All the boys have big dreams - starting with the hope of attending high school - but what they want most is contact with their families. For one teen in the film, this means numerous attempts to help his fourteen-year-old sister escape before an arranged marriage. (via Sons of Perdition - Rotten Tomatoes)”
So I’m only about 3 yrs behind on this show but I just finished Big Love. I was watching the last episode when I thought to myself.. hey.. I bet the last episode is soon. and checked to find out I was watching it.
Then it got finale-like in a hurry just after that.
I was frankly underwhelmed as the story wrapped up in a way that I guess I could see might have been satisfying for people who’d watched it for years and years one episode at a time maybe.
I thought it was sort of too tidy and it screamed of that sort of ending TV shows used to have when they spent years on the air winding around in plot until they became so terrible no one would watch and they would cancel the show.
Actually back then you rarely got an ending at all.
But yeah this was like, “oh crap, we need to end it, what can we do?” and they tied a bow on it and went there you go.
I enjoyed moments and actors in this show but I dont know that I’d recommend it just cause I really felt like they all pretty much acted like childish brats for the run of the show and then at the end they tried to make it seem like they were lovely people really.
I don’t feel like I learned anything or took away anything from the experience of watching it.
Except maybe that my boss who was all into it when it was first run didn’t get that I wasn’t watching it because it was on a pay TV channel that I couldn’t afford on what she was paying me.
