I don’t really consider this to be a spoiler but we probably should have a rot13 link handy just in case.
There’s a scene where the guys are talking about what happened and their stories act as the narrator of the scene as it happened at the time… and there is a significant difference between the stories they tell and the scene we are shown.
Which, lemme tell ya, is one heck of a well-done trick. It gives you the unreliable narrator(s) at the exact same time as the “what really happened”.
But then I wonder… when we are shown something from the 90’s, are we being shown the truth? I’m down with the whole “person giving the speech is lying” thing… but I’m less cool with the “being shown something that didn’t happen” thing. Annie Wilkes had a point, is all I’m saying. Unless, of course, it’s a dream or hallucination sequence and we are deliberately having “what is real” withheld from us (as it had been withheld from the POV character)… but I’m less cool with being jerked around. It’s lazy.
Where was I? Oh, yes! The weekend!
I’ll be finishing up the show this Friday night, Saturday morning, I reckon, and going over to a friend’s to play poker on Saturday. Perhaps have a glass of something whilst. Other than that, the usual chores to make up for the week and the usual errands to prepare for the next.
So… what’s on your docket?
