Quote of the Moment: On Not Belonging

September 4, 2013 Leave a comment


“We’re outsiders, you and I, on the periphery. Watching everybody else, pretending we’re just like them but knowing we’re not. The best we can hope for is to find a place where we don’t have to pretend.”

Isaak Sirko (Dexter, 2012)


TV: What I’m Watching

This post is a round-up of every TV show I’m currently watching week to week, in alphabetical order and with no more than a paragraph or two per programme. I’ve split it into three posts that will all be up within a week (they’re already typed and scheduled), and this is the second. General spoilers will probably follow for the season being discussed and anything preceding it:

Community (Season 1)

The very first episode makes a point of listing all the different types of people who attend a community college, which sets up the main cast that spans many generations, from youngsters fresh out of high school all the way up to Chevy Chase’s considerably older Pierce. What I like about the cast is that they’re all students and therefore all equals, none of them have actual authority over any of the others, despite the variety. The show wisely centres on ex-lawyer Jeff as the main character, who thinks he’s better than the college and hopes to breeze through it all as easily as possible, while the others mostly do their best to soften his cynical world view. So far it’s proven to be a very funny show.

Dexter (Season 5)
