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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Inhuman Coworkers?

This dream was possibly partly inspired by Episode 9 (They Come Knocking) of the anthology television show Into The Dark.

All that I can remember of this dream now is that part of the dream took place during the day in the city of D, and I remember driving around back and forth on the street that passing by Walmart et cetera.

I possibly went shopping and to various places but I can not remember.

The next thing that I remember is working at a fictional job where I had at least one female coworker and either another female coworker or male coworker who were pale and strange and they seemed inhuman, and they probably somewhat reminded me of more human adult versions of the black-eyed children / entities from the episode They Come Knocking of Into The Dark.

I am not sure if these two coworkers were just humans who seemed inhuman or if they were alien-human hybrids or if they were some kind of other type of entity, either way something was not right about them, but they were good at doing / managing things efficiently and keeping up productivity et cetera at work.

But they did not care about people et cetera so they just pushed things toward maximum productivity and efficiently not caring about people’s health et cetera, they were like cold business types, but they seemed less human or not human at all and strange.

I am not sure if they had strange eyes (like all black) or not, I do not remember getting to be very close to them, I just remember disagreeing with their work and management style and something about them seemed inhuman and not right and creepy and cold et cetera to me.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.


After work I took a nap on the living room couch and I had some dreams, but I got awakened from them because I needed to go get a new battery for my automobile.

This caused me to forget the dreams before I could record them, but maybe I will remember some details later and I will add them here.

Fighting Everyone In The Library

This episode was possibly partly inspired by Episode 8 (All That We Destroy) of the Hulu anthology television show Into The Dark that I watched before going to sleep.

All that I can remember of this dream is that at some point I was outside during the day, there was a man with light-color skin who was possibly an automobile mechanic who was helping fix someone’s automobile, and after talking with them briefly I walked inside a library.

I went inside a large windowless room in the library where everyone was, somehow I ended up challenging everyone to a fight / sparring match (maybe someone challenged me, and I felt confident enough to extend the challenge so that everyone in the building could fight me at the same time), and so a brawl / sparring match started with me against everyone.

Somehow I was super over-confident and I barely even tried during the fight, I mostly let people try to attack me, and I was so good and / or they were so bad at fighting that they still did not stand a chance against me.

I easily defeated their best people quickly so everyone gave up, their best and / or loudest fighter was a man whose fingertip completely broke off somehow, the man said that his finger could be reattached, and so we picked his finger up and I used some kind of futuristic mini-torch-like medical device to basically weld his finger back on.

I think that maybe the man had the medical device, he briefly explained how it worked, and then he had me use it to weld his finger back on.

The device seemed to have some kind of special substance that helped to reattach limbs / skin / et cetera, it was like some kind of skin / glue-like stuff maybe, but I can not remember.

After welding his finger back on and talking to them briefly about our brawl I left to a slightly fictional version of The E House where I seemed to live with my family, and a fictional door that led to the family room was unlocked to my surprise and I learned that the door handle / lock seemed to be broken so I told my parents who were in the family room.

Then I started to talk to my parents about the library brawl et cetera, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Flying During An Invasion? | I’m Just F#####g With You

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was inside a multi-story possibly college apartment or dorm with some people who were visiting a male friend with light-color skin, I remember us hanging out with him in the largest room in his apartment or dorm, and at some point his girlfriend who had light-color skin joined us.

It seemed that their friend, his girlfriend, and several other people who showed up to visit too were somewhat famous online (live) streamers (maybe YouTube and / or Twitch), and the room that we were in had some special interesting looking long single person sofa-like chairs that were special chairs for online streamers that they would use to play video games from et cetera for long periods of time.

The chairs looked comfortable and you could lay back and prop up your legs if you wanted to.

I forgot to mention that someone in the group looked just like me, this person was possibly another me or part of me but I can not remember, and this person who looked like me would sometimes mess with things which was annoying the girlfriend of the friend that we were visiting.

One thing that this other me messed with was an unfinished sewing project that looked like a pink scarf, this really annoyed the girlfriend and me, and so she started to act like she was ready for us to leave.

Connected to this room was a door that led to another building that was connected to this building, and at some point a young woman with light-color skin opened this door from the other side to talk to some people in our room.

I noticed that the room that she was in had a tall ceiling and her room was pretty large, I complimented her on her room, but for some unknown reason she took this as an insult and she got angry so I tried to explain that it was compliment not an insult.

While doing this I walked into her room, which was now a different building, and I started to slowly noticed that it looked pretty bare and somewhat rough and like this was an abandoned old building that was still livable.

She kicked me out of her apartment or dorm, but I went through the wrong door and I was in a dimly lit hallway still in her building.

The building definitely looked and felt and sounded abandoned, and I got lost as I walked around through hallways with doors trying to find my way back to the other building and room while the young woman was possibly still angrily looking for me for some unknown reason.

While lost I started to feel something in my mouth, like some food or something had come back up and got stuck there, and so I could not talk now and I was worried about this leading to my breath stinking so I tried to find somewhere where I could spit whatever it was out so that I could talk and then wash my mouth out.

At some point I probably was trying to spit whatever it was out, but I woke up realizing that what I was feeling in my mouth was my anti-snoring device in the real world that was in my mouth.

Somehow I was able to feel it partly in the dream at that point, which confused me in the dream I guess, and eventually caused me to wake up.

When I woke up and I looked at the time I realized that to my surprise I had only recently fallen asleep, and so I had this dream not long after going to sleep.

Dream 2

This dream is too unclear now unfortunately so I am not sure if this dream became a lucid dream or not, and I can not remember important details.

This dream took place during the day, maybe late in the afternoon and / or when it was possibly somewhat gray outside, and I remember walking outside where there were lots of people when maybe aircraft and / or something like that started flying across the sky like this was an invasion or something.

I can not remember any of the details other than people panicking and running for their lives, I was with someone (maybe one of my brothers, but I can not remember), and I remember trying to see if I could fly to avoid and / or fight the threats.

I remember running and jumping in the air and flapping my arms to gain some height, this worked, and I was able to fly but only very low to the ground.

I then helped the other person with me learn to fly after convincing them that it was possible and that they could probably do it too, this person flew even lower to the ground, and then I started using my usual techniques to gain more height until I was able to fly around higher and better so I tried to help the other person do the same.

I can not remember if we fought any of the threats or not or if the other person was able to fly higher and better or not too, I just remember flying which gave me an advantage to avoid the threats better, but that is all that I can remember now of this dream unfortunately.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that I had a college apartment or dorm or it was near or on a college campus, I remember going to and from it, but I can not remember if I was a college student or not.

I think that it was located by a large parking lot near one or more fields.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

This dream was very similar to the previous dream so I am not sure if they are separate or not, in this dream I remember going to a house during the day by a large parking lot near one or more fields where I lived with some of my family, and I was there by myself until my dad and some of my brothers showed up with my male cousin EE.

I did not feel like any visitors, especially not EE who was acting more like he would sometimes when I was still a kid when he would sometimes seemly turn my male cousins ME and DE against me or something, and so I wanted to avoid him.

Unfortunately EE was going to be visiting longer than expected, possibly even spending the night but I can not remember, and so I did interact with / talk to him a bit before I woke up.

Dream 5

This dream was inspired by me watching Episode 7 (I’m Just F*cking With You) of the anthology television show Into The Dark (Season 1) before I went to sleep.

All that I can remember of this dream is that the character Chester Conklin from that episode was in the dream, in the dream he was a serial killer who would trap people and prank them until he kills them eventually usually, and I ended up being one of his victims along with a woman with light-color skin.

I was trapped inside a building while the woman was trapped outside the building, we did not realize that Chester was a serial killer at first or that we were trapped, but eventually it became clear after he kept goofing around and pranking us and acting strange.

I managed to survive Chester’s pranks and he went outside to prank the woman to death, I assumed that this was not really over and that he was still going to try to kill me somehow, and so I was on high alert as I cautiously tried to leave the building and escape without getting killed by Chester or a trap or something.

But I woke up.
