Back on the Team Human Podcast as we head further toward Armageddon:
Looking at it compared to the original my colour mixing still needs a lot more work, but i’m still rather pleased with how it all turned out. Still plenty of learning going on.
Everything starts with a quick sketch:
It’s based upon this photo:
I got inspired to do it watching Liron, who has a great Youtube channel:
Back soon with another picture.
Finally, something good to come out of apple: never thought i’d hear myself say that — or type it. I suppose that humanity’s most despised, fruit embossed, utterly evil, greed-feeding corporation has to do something decent once in a while.
Yes folks, if you’re looking for a good sitcom to cheer you up then this might just be what you’re looking for.
It gave me a good few giggles anyway.
The season itself was officially 9 episodes but they went ahead and made a special 10th episode entitled “Quarantine”. Yes folks, all our favourite characters from the series video-ing in from home to make up the whole episode — and it’s a super good fun thing to cheer us up in our miserable quarantined lifestyles that we’re all having to endure these days. So make sure you find that 10th episode when you think you’ve watched the whole series.
It’s so good that the utterly evil, greed driven apple corporation renewed it for a second series before this was even released: so we have some more good giggles to look forward to sometime in the future.
Production by Esmail Corp and directed by Sam Esmail. Sam is also executive producer of this and Briarpatch. And if you’re still not with it, he’s also the guy who created Mr. Robot. Oh, that Sam Esmail. Yes, that Sam Esmail.
It’s all a bit strange to start: Heidi Bergman, now a waitress, is questioned by Thomas Carrasco, a Department of Defence auditor, as to her role in the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, about which she claims to have no knowledge. We then switch back and forth in timelines with Heidi, years earlier, running Homecoming while in the present claiming to have no knowledge of doing so.
There’s some great acting all round in this, but especially from Shea Whigham who plays Thomas Carrasco, the downtrodden cog in the DoD machine, to absolute perfection.
It’s good. So good i even watched season 2: review coming soon.
The Blacklist usually has some great season endings but, sadly, this season had to end early. Bummer.
So what we’ve learned this season is that Raymond is on his last legs, health wise, and tidying up his estate ready for the inevitable death. One would have thought he’d already done that considering his line of work.
Raymond also discovers that Katarina, or whoever she really is, isn’t dead after all.
So now we have to watch yet another season to find out what is actually happening and who Raymond really is.
On a sad note, we have to say a final goodbye to Brian Dennehy, who left us in April. Over 180 films and many tv shows besides — including The Blacklist of course. Now that is one really superb innings.
Truly a television show with a difference.
I would definitely recommend it to those of us who enjoyed Mr Robot, especially the bits where you realise that everything you just watched is not what it seemed you were watching. Yeah, another one of those weird, strangely odd endings.
Great cast, great acting, great filming, great location, just great.
I’m presuming that this will be only a single season, i hope it is, because, just like you, it’s special.
Now stop reading this and go and become an agent of divine nonchalance.
Season 5 certainly didn’t feel anything like as good as previous seasons, like everything became rather stale and a lot of what happens just seems pointless and stocking filling. It’s all quite reminiscent of Breaking Bad’s two penultimate seasons, which also seemed quite superfluous to the overall story line.
Apparently, season 6 will be the last and one can’t help but think that season 5 has been completely used to set everyone and their story lines up for their finale. At least, that’s what i’m hoping, because i’d hate to think that season 6 is going to be more like this.
Ho hum, we shall have to keep our collective fingers crossed and wait and see next year.
