    I’m so glad I discovered this podcast. Interesting thoughts.
    The
    Grove was a really good episode and I’ve enjoyed the whole story of
    Carol, how she’s changed (more than just about any other character).
    Before
    I’d watched it I heard people going on about how ‘They’ve gone too far’
    but avoided spoilers… so I went in expecting far worse. I was pretty
    sure there was going to be a zombie baby by the end of the episode,
    seeing as how Judith has been on borrowed time anyway.
    As it turned out, shocking? no… disturbing, dark, completely in line with the theme of the series? yes.
    I
    look forward to hearing what you have to say about True Detective. I
    was so in love with it all the way through to the last episode… and
    then it took me a while to make my peace with it… to kind of let it
    join the rest of the story as a conclusion.
    As a fan of Thomas
    Ligotti I was thrilled to hear the character Rust spelling out his
    nihilistic philosophy… but was that truncated by the ending? Was it
    refutation of what seemed to be the inspiration to all the preceding
    episodes? Did Rust just trade a bleak vision for a happy one? That seems
    too damn simple.
    Anyway, excited to hear your takes on it.

    Good work, thanks for letting us listen in.
