    Once again I find the nudity viewer discretion warnings hilarious. I don't think we even got to see a cloaca.*

    The survivors are being knocked off one by one. We haven't seen the lawyer in awhile though.

    *Technically, I think it should have discharged uric acid rather than ammonia. Fish can excrete nitrogen in the form of ammonia because their watery environment quickly carries it away. Ammonia is far more toxic to organisms than uric acid or urea and AFAIK only fish can get away with it.

    I think the nudity warning at the bottom (and spoken) is a general warning, while the actual letters change week to week and truly indicate whether it's there. This week it was L and V.

    The lawyer's got to be in bad shape, although I thought the same about the husband, but at the beginning of the episode it looked like maybe they went back in time a little bit to show his transformation, similar to how Goth Guy was last week.

    Dish Network was in & out for FX this week, it went off the deep end about 45 minutes in. The last 15 minutes were choppy, and I missed much of what happened. It was mentally figuring it out rather than watching it unfold, which was disappointing.

    That was either a Tarp of Invisibility +2 or some rather poor editing in the opening scene. Eff took the sheet, opened it up over the corpse of the pilot, but then it was miraculously gone a moment later. And for his next trick....

    I read all three of these books. So far they are being very faithful to the source material. I'm glad they did it as a TV series instead of a movie. Doing it as a movie, even 3 or 4, would have required cutting out a lot of the sub plots which are all important later in the story. I would have hated to see it end up like Ender's Game.

    I got all caught up on this show yesterday and this morning. Still enjoying the show. I only read the first book and I'm seeing familiar things. Like the guy locking himself in the shed. Although in the book, I think it was a cellar.
