    I was really curious how he was caught, and it really was amazing how it all played out

    It would start and end with the narration:

    "Please, please... pull up your pants"

    I am 6 episodes into Dark and have nailed every one of my predictions thus far. I like the show a lot but it does same mistakes when it comes to anything involving time travel.

    The show goes to great lengths to beat you over the head with the idea that time is non-linear, which is a factual statement. But it falls into the time travel trope of imposing linear-time consequences anyway.

    The problem with time travel in shows is convincing the audience that you cannot change the events because they have already happened. The choices that are being made have already been made because the moment time travel happened it had always happened. What we experience as the present is the consequence of choices in the past as having been influenced by the future.

    That is more than enough. Having the "but you can still change the past stuff" is cool if it's later demonstrated that no, no you can't. Because the choices you make aren't actually being informed by new information. It's the same information you always used to make the same decisions you always did.

    My hope for the show is that's where it goes otherwise you end up playing with resolving paradoxes. And I ain't gots no time for that shit.

    The legal system fucked him over. Not that he's innocent, but that was a breach of procedure in a major way.

    Im sure they changed the law so that loophole is there for the prosecution, but if the show was totally accurate in his lawyers action, then he was totally fucked over


    even tho he was a serial bomber

    Seinfeld was on television during a period of my life where I didn’t watch tv much. Jerry Seinfeld’s comedy isn’t really my style but I give it chances.

    I watched a round table discussion a while back with him, Louis CK, Chris Rock and Ricky Gervais and he came across, at least to me as very pretentious. That said, when I saw Netflix was getting this, I started watching it and I enjoy it a great deal. However, it’s not him I enjoy watching, but the other comedians. Again, Seinfeld comes across as ultra pretentious and snooty. I also don’t find him funny. Love this though.
