This weekend, I've basically made the setting.

I had to tape together 4 boxes to get the size I wanted. Then I added foam to be the basic shape of rock formations, then paper mach├ęd them.

Then I painted the background, and spray painted the rocks black for a start.

Then here is the rocks having been painted orange, plus the sand added. (I did not think through the idea that my box full of sand might appear to the cats as a giant litter box? I've been storing it up on top of things to play it safe.)

Here is Impeepator Furiosa.

And the finished Citadel.

The only other thing I did this weekend was see Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I didn't hate it? But it didn't quite gel for me, because Darcy left me cold. I think he was all wrong for the part. But Lily James was quite good, and there were fun scenes, and Mr Bingley was the hot would-be-husband/son of Mila Kunis in Jupiter Ascending. But a PP without a solid Mr Darcy is just never going to be a homerun.

That was kind of a mess. I didn't hate it, but I don't think it worked as an episode. It went from serious, domestic terrorism to a trippy episode within the span of minutes. But the mini-mes were cute and of course Mulder's trip was hilarious. Honky-tonk badonkadonk!!! And that's a way to have the Lone Gunmen cameo without enraging me, so bullet dodged, show.

Not sure who keeps trying to make Robbie Amell happen, but sorry kid, you are not your cousin. Although, to be fair, I think I liked him as Miller better than any other role I've seen him in.

The case (why do I bother) was weirdly short shrifted. Why is talking to a comatose guy the only lead? Like, can no one trace his cell phone and stuff like a normal detective? And were those actually DHS agents or were they someone trying to get to him? And I can't tell if I believe Einstein about the placebos or not. They sort of try to wrap it all up with the idea of the power of words, but they didn't stick the landing. Only one episode left! And it is surely mythology focused, so I am bracing myself.
