    Revolt of the Angels by Anatole France. Discovered this book while I was down a Proust rabbit hole. Kind of a trip. A guardian angel gets bored with his assignment (a wealthy nobleman whose home...

    Agreed. First half was strong, second half of the season felt almost like a network tv offering.

    I went back and read what I wrote and this is a fair criticism. It is not at all what I had intended, but it is what I said. I really just wondered if Pelado was bored by the translation I'd...

    I had the same thought. If they wanted to go nerdy, it would've been more accurate for them to be sporting butt cuts. Can't remember a single kid with a haircut like those two boys have, and they are...
