I'm only a couple episodes from the end of Wonderfalls and it's still pushing up the twisted meter to all new heights. I'm just shocked that something like this even made it on the air. It's just...derranged. The plotlines don't run like you think they're going to and there are plenty of parallel tracks where there's support that Jaye is simply a nutjob. It's no wonder that the producers thought of running an entire season where she's locked up in an insane asylum. They've managed to feed both sides of the sane vs crazy senarios so that the audience can't quite be sure what is going on.

While this makes for a really fasinating show, I can also see it turning off a ton of people who might not like the ambiguity that the main character is either schizophrenic or chatting with Lucifer. That weirdass Facts of Life theme song murder plot alone would probaly give most people the willies. With 2 episodes left, I'm still wondering if there's going to be some sort of 'kill them all' message ending in a forever unresolved cliffhanger involving Jaye and a corpse. This show has also showed me that I really don't want God to talk to me if He's going to be a dick about it. I'll bet Joan of Arcadia never had these problems.

So, other than wonderfalls, not a whole lot is going on at the moment. Southern Exposure III is this weekend and I'll be trekking down to Cherry Hill to run games and events there. A palpable lack of excitement is in the air about the whole thing.
