Catching up on older episodes during the (permanent?) hiatus.

I definitely go with the original and am glad it made it in. Both A&D make good points, but A was really reaching and nitpicking at points (and after this and the Pennies episode, I fear for her life choices). This episode makes me really bummed that we're going to not get new ones, as far as we know. The show is simultaneously everything that was both great and frustrating about the show.

 

One of the weirdest things is that in the extras of the re-make, they never once mention the original film. They talk about it as a strict adaptation of the novel, even though there clearly are scenes that are shot-for-shot the same. That's so strange.
