netflix easter egg

2

Nice set of easter eggs you may have missed in Shut Up and Dance.

PM Callow “to divorce” (The National Anthem)
Victoria Skillane trial next week (White Bear)
One Smart Cookie ad (White Christmas)
Talent show ‘15 Million Merits’ launches next week (Fifteen Million Merits)

Based on this, Shut Up and Dance happens somewhere between National Anthem and White Bear.

White Bear then being before White Christmas and Fifteen Million Merits.

The Punisher Easter Egg! (Possibly Unintentional)

So, since The Punisher  became available on Netflix today I obviously decided to watch it. I was so excited for the show in general, in particular I was excited to see Ben Barnes because he is awesome. Then I noticed something…

So I’m on episode 3 now and around 22:51 minutes in, there’s a moment during a flashback where frank and Billy (Ben Barnes) are sitting around on their cots talking. During this scene Billy is reading a book and as soon as I saw the book I thought ‘Holy Fuck! I recognize that Book!’ Then I realised why I recognized the book… it is ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray.

(Not the best screecap of the book, and I couldn’t get one myself, but I promise that is the book)

Now this normally would matter exactly 0% but… Ben Barnes was in a movie called ‘Dorian Gray’ based on the story. Dorian Gray is literally reading the book The Picture of Dorian Gray.

I’m pretty sure the only reason I am excited about this is because I love this book, but I thought it was fantastic and I’m just going to be freaking out over here for…ever.

This was possibly an unintentional thing that just happened but I noticed it and I am happy about it, sorry I don’t have my own screencap of it yet. I just had to share. Now I will go shuffle off back to my corner to watch the rest of the season and stop bothering you…

Video up! Rachel Reviews: Stranger Things - Season 1

Everyone’s going to write hurt/comfort so I wrote about Netflix because I watch a lot of it. 11.04 coda, ~800 words

Once Baby’s back in one piece, which takes a lot of elbow grease and a series of maxed-out credit cards, Netflix becomes a thing they do together between cases. First things first, Sam makes Cas his own profile and connects the account to the TV in Dean’s room.

“Spoilers,” Sam says, which Dean suspects is bullshit, but he doesn’t call Sam out. He likes his privacy, and it’s not exactly bad, having Cas to himself.

Cas exhausts Orange is the New Black and Sense8 within a couple weeks and starts in on Hemlock Grove, only to give up three episodes in because it’s actually terrible. Dean doesn’t complain about his marathoning, happy to have something to look forward to when he gets home, besides his mattress and the back of his eyelids. Cas is healing but isn’t ready, not quite yet, so they crash out on Dean’s bed with a six-pack, elbows knocking as the hours pass in forty-five and fifty and fifty-eight minute segments. Cas stops asking if Dean wants to watch another episode after the first week, and Dean becomes accustomed to falling asleep next to him. Cas pauses their progress and covers Dean with a blanket. The significance isn’t lost on him.
