In which I watch tv for "research"
Somehow, during the year of not being able to do anything BUT watch TV, I managed to entirely miss the second season of The Alienist.
I like The Alienist a lot. I like how they portray the excitement of new advances in science and how it clashes with historic tradition. I think the acting is great, the cinematography is beautiful, and...most importantly...the excellent costuming. It is so very helpful to see actual late Victorian dress on actual people who have to actually move around in it.
Although it is hard to lose myself in a mystery when I'm taking furious notes on ribbon, collars, and lace.
