Patreon Post: 13 Reasons Why the Netflix series “Tape 3, Side B”

Hannah tries to rebound from Courtney's impulsive rumor by going on a Valentine's Day date while Clay continues his shambling quest to exact some kind of justice.  Though the two main plot lines are dragging badly, the rest of 13 Reasons Why amps up subtle character development of its side-players and the series hits a high visual storytelling point.

Patreon Post: 13 Reasons Why the Netflix series “Tape 3, Side A”

The fifth episode of 13 Reasons Why is less interesting visually than the previous, but excels at character analysis. Clay's plan to play "gotcha" on Courtney backfires and Courtney gets nuanced reasons for her sin against Hannah.

Mental health warning: this episode involves discussing my history with suicide, so please proceed with caution.

Patreon Post: 13 Reasons Why the Netflix series “Tape 2, Side B”

For the first time since starting this project, I'm excited to talk about an episode of 13 Reasons Why.  It's because "Tape 2, Side B" bounces from its weakest episode to its strongest as a damn fine episode of TV for any network and features the most affecting emotional beats of the series so far.

Patreon Post: 13 Reasons Why the Netflix series “Tape 2, Side A”

I'm back to 13 Reasons Why with the weakest episode to date.  A full shift behind the scenes results in scattered focus and neglected characterization.  But at least Hannah's mother gets a chance to shine in the strongest moments of "Tape 2, Side A".

Patreon Post: Twin Peaks: The Return

Now that I've had time to digest what Twin Peaks: The Return succeeded and failed at, I sat down with part-time Can't Stop the Movies contributor Kyle Miner.  In our conversation, we discuss what makes Lynch effective, some of the spiritualism he borrows to varying affect, how television consumption practices have changed, whether Lynch "gets a pass" on how he treats women in his narratives, and what the long-term impact of Twin Peaks: The Return might be.

After some deliberation, I loved this conversation so much I didn't want to mark it private.  Please consider contributing a couple of dollars to this Patreon.
