  1. Great episode.

    I find the artists personal life effecting my viewing of their art so difficult. Certainly if Polanski was doing a movie about pedophilia , I couldn’t watch (I’ve never seen his Lolita). But I love Chinatown.

    I’ve never read Cerberus. If it was laden with misogyny, I’d be out. In the same way, books with any blatant political agenda turn me off. When the story supports the agenda, I tolerate it more. But when the agenda is primary, I’m out.

    As for this issue, I have a very soft spot in my heart for Madame Masque. A very soft spot. So good choice!

    1. Thanks, Dr. Anj! More Madame Masque in 10 episodes!

      Between personal things and political things, it it very hard to find a project to enjoy these days with a clear conscience.
