Remember Donkey Kong Racing?

Very divisive movie among me and my friends. (see also: Juno, The Terminal) I enjoyed it quite a bit.

I've been known to enjoy some New Girl.

Oof, that second case was a bit rough. Some okay twists, but man, did it drag. Apparently everyone's way into case 3 though, so I'm staying positive.

@csl316: Thanks for letting me know. Sadly I can't afford to get Amazon prime. :( Hopefully they release it on Netflix one of these days.

It seems like most cable providers have it on demand, so if you have cable, look into it!

...Well, actually, I'm pretty sure women are born with all of their eggs, they don't make more. But I don't think the Proletheans removed all of them? So either she realizes the eggs are special, or still thinks of them as being hers even though they've been removed. I dunno. Helena just does what Helena's gonna do.

Haha, well, clearly I shouldn't have jumped into a conversation about eggs based on my high school anatomy class knowledge from over ten years ago.

@pyromagnestir: They're definitely in Canada, but not a specified city. Which makes Paul's military group a little confusing, because he's totes an American, I think.

Also, I think the nitrogen tank was supposed to be the rest of Helena's eggs, Jurassic Park style.

You think so? That just raises more questions. Why would she need those? Why would she leave them at the apartment? Why can't the writers just let Helena be happy with her sestras for a while??

Sorry, Helena just makes me a little emotional sometimes.

I mean, she was very excited by the idea of having kids, and is super protective of her eggs/ children in general, so I doubt she would leave them in the barn when she burnt it down. I get the impression that, especially after the super-hugsy party at Felix's, she figured that the eggs would be in good hands with her seestras. If she was leaving them, it was probably just because girl needs some 'me' time after all the craziness, maybe go find her new boyfriend and spend like a week decompressing with crazy sex or whatever.

The pessimist in me just thinks that now that they've made Helena sympathetic, they're going to kill her again, and it's going to be so much worse. Ugh.

Oh, I know she wants kids, but like, isn't she pregnant now? And even if she isn't, she can make more eggs. You know, with her body. Though yeah, I guess Helena would be ignorant about that stuff. Maybe it's sperm? Like she doesn't trust that a guy will ever like her enough to have babies with her? Okay, now I'm just inventing new ways for Helena to break my heart.

If Helena doesn't eventually get her happy ending, I won't be able to deal.

I didn't intend to watch all the final 4 or 5 episodes today, but that ended up happening.

One thing that bugged me throughout my watching of season 2 that had nothing to do with season 2 itself, I forget where this show is supposed to be set. Are they in the US? Canada? Where the fuck are these people?

As for the season itself, the convolutedness factor continued to rise. Maybe close to full on off the rails. Still enjoyable though. Especially whenever Helena is around. I don't remember if I liked her in season 1 or not, but she was the best part of season 2. More Helena, please.

The setting is kept intentionally vague. I guess they thought Americans wouldn't respond to a show set in Canada? I dunno, it's a strange choice.

Yeah, I think the show threatens to spin out of control every once in a while. I'm choosing to put my faith in the writers with this male clone thing. The show's still completely unpredictable, that's for sure.

Helena's my favorite.
