Dream 1

In this dream I was with some people in a building, and we were going to film some scenes for a movie; and the main actress of the film was with us, and my female coworker CR was with us too.

At some point a man walked over as we were trying to film the movie scenes, and he started to bother the main actress.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that my brother GC and I were on a body of water using maybe a raft to reach a tiny island that was just a tall hill or something, and when we were on the hill something happened where we fell off and our raft flipped; and so we had to swim to the shore.

When I reached the shore there was a movie-like moment that happened where Katie Holmes and a man looked like they were running in a panic from something in the water, but for some reason they stopped by the edge of the shore instead of away from it.

My Thoughts

I would have never heard of this show if it were not for a random comment that I saw at a streaming video website, no one I follow or know ever mentioned this show before, and so I am glad that I saw that random comment because this show was better than The Twilight Zone (2019) and Black Mirror (Season 5) and most of Channel Zero.

It is a shame that this show is not known by most people and I guess was not marketed very well, if you get a chance please do watch this show or at least my favorite episode and maybe a few others, because it deserves to be more well known even if some of the episodes could have been better and even though males/men were often portrayed as the villains.

Each episode is basically its own movie pretty much, each episode is inspired by a different holiday which is a cool concept in my opinion, and so I will list some of my thoughts for each episode.

The Body

This episode was a nice start to the season that was better than I had expected.

Flesh & Blood

The main actress did a good job portraying her mental disorder, and I was surprised how this episode managed keep things watchable even with a longer run-time.

Pooka!

This episode was weird and had more potential but it was disappointing and confusing, and was one of my least favorite.

New Year, New You

This episode had a boring start and it had me wondering where they were going with it, but things picked up at the end as things escalated and it ended in a way that made you think about how you feel about the main character.

Down

This episode also had me wondering where they were going with this and how were they going to fill the rest of the time, but at some point the episode started to escalate after a twist.

Treehouse

This episode had me wondering where they were going with it and it did a good job tricking the audience, but the episode had some flaws and it did not live up to its full potential.

I’m Just F*cking With You

This episode had me wondering what would happen, some twists happened and things escalated, and it ended in a way that had me wondering and in a way that was unexpected but that went with the mood / theme of this episode.

All That We Destroy

This episode surprised me, it was more Black Mirror-like than Black Mirror (Season 5), and I liked the science fiction of this episode which featured some interesting futuristic technology that was blended nicely with the world in a way where it did not stand out too much.

This was one of my favorite episodes, my favorite episode probably, and it was good enough to be released as its own movie online in my opinion.

They Come Knocking

This episode was possibly the first of only two episodes to contain something paranormal / supernatural, there were some things that I liked about it, but it was a bit disappointing.

Culture Shock

This episode reminded me of something from the video game series Fallout combined with one or more other things that I can not think of, it clearly had a message, and Spanish and English was used in this episode so it was a bilingual episode.

School Spirit

While this episode did have me trying to guess what would happen, I was able to narrow things down too early, and this episode was similar to the episode New Year, New You in the way that it ended; but this episode could have been better.

Pure

This episode started out trying to make you feel a bit unsettled and like something was not right, at first even the main character looked strange, and that combined with the environment and the situation created its own atmosphere.

In my opinion this episode seemed to bring together a pretty common theme throughout most of this season where it seemed that males/men were usually portrayed as the villains, this episode took it to the max, and it ends implying that something major is going to happen; and a certain group is likely on the chopping block.

A Father’s Day Rhyme / Poem By My Brother GC

Recently my brother GC shared a rhyme / poem / whatever that he made for this Father’s Day as a tribute to fathers, and so I decided to share it and he says that anyone is free to share it and even change it up if they want to:

The people of the world thank the fathers for all they do and for all they have done

On this day celebrated by lovers, daughters, and sons;

For they are the people many consider their most important—their number one.

Their job on this earth is most important and is never truly over.

Those that they work hard for are as lucky as four-leaf clovers.

Some do not appreciate or thank them enough,

Even though what they do is so important and oh-so tough.

In protecting, providing, and loving, they are well versed.

In the steps to our creation/birth, fathers are our first.

On Father’s Day, people celebrate and cheer;

For if not for them, most would not be here.

They are the bee’s knees and out of sight.

Amazing and dependable, they’re *hand clap* DY-NO-MITE!

Most can be a father, but only the best try to do it right.

In our thoughts, memories, and hugs we should hold them tight.

Happy Father’s Day to all and to all a good day and a good night.

-My Brother GC
