With Labor Day fast approaching, summer is coming to an end. We previewed the summer’s movies in two episodes of the Overthinking It Podcast (subscribe in iTunes). From the flip side, what were the standouts for you?
In sadder news, we lost Dominick Dunne and Ted Kennedy. Fenzel was too busy writing his latest opus on race relations to man his customary post at the OTI Obits desk… why don’t you fill in for him and reflect on the passing of a literary and a political giant?
On the TV front, Mad Men continues gloriously (I gotta say, though I know it makes me a philistine, I like the shorter shows and tighter pace), and—mirabile dictu—Summer Glau is joining the cast of Dollhouse in the fall. (Fellow geeks, if you need a moment alone, I’ll understand. Just come back to leave your thoughts in this, your open thread.)
