It doesn't bother me although I imagine it could have been just as good if not better in French.
Well, that's something to watch on that wasteland. Thanks.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

Vigil was neat. I especially liked how all the alliances subtly shift as more things get uncovered. It doesn't give an easy moral verdict or solution but leaves you with some uncomfortable questions

Yes! I would say though that it doesn't give an easy moral verdict but it kinda gently guides you towards an uneasy one, no? Something along the lines of "you can be a useful idiot (or worse) for the Russians or you grow up and perceive the beauty (despite everything!) of that world in which you live and realize that there are some things in it worth safeguarding?"

Yes definitely. I think the question of to what extent covering things up is justified remains somewhat open though (and certainly uncomfortable) despite the gentle moral stance the series takes

Recently paid almost $200 for a deluxe edition of the new Neon Genesis Evangelion blu ray even though I've owned the series on DVD for almost 20 years but I don't care and it's still my favorite thing and reflects my inner world in ways that leave me bare to the bone. The colors are so vibrant now but all I care about is immersing myself in pure ennui and wondering why it matters to even try because everyone still hates me and I still feel nothing.

I love Evangelion.

I am knee deep in Succession, finishing the 3rd season. This is Sopranos level TV. A bit like Versailles but in corporate America, lots of scheming and generally vile but also multilayered and complicated characters. Plus its hilarious. The actors are amazing (it become more obvious in the second and third season), the writing is fantastic. It doesn't really lose quality throughout the 3 seasons but I do wonder how much more of this we can take.
