TV Review: THE BRINK: Season 1, Episode 6: Tweet Tweet Tweet [HBO]


HBO’s The Brink Tweet Tweet Tweet TV Show Review. The Brink: Season 1, Episode 6: Tweet Tweet Tweet resorts to letting Alex Talbot (Jack Black) seem like a decent empathetic human being who really did want to make the right choice for the most vulnerable people in the situation after the school attack. He is even so obliged to take his found weed stash back from Fareeda (Melanie Kannokada) after she hides it from the girls for him. No one wants the seven students to be uncomfortable around their caretakers, or lack of internet, which they have been starved of for days on end.

Talbot’s conversation quality elevates as he becomes funny not for his frustrations, but his comraderie skills, while schmoozing Ambassador Kittredge (John Larroquette), causing him to switch gears again into the fanstastical revelatory dream story just to have a little sit down. A religious dream has brought them to this place of doom they now must coexist in, but the world belongs to Ambassador inside the embassy. Alex becomes confronted head on with the task of de-escalating the tin foil hat stuff, but he takes it all in with hilarious professionalism.

Zeke (Pablo Shreiber) and Glenn (Eric Ladin) need a phone. Was there ever a phone at the desert mansion? Doesn’t matter. These two are making headway at becoming the entertainment for a very lonely and repressed British couple with plenty of props to play dress up in. So, why the hell not make a historical mash-up porn? That sounds more attractive than becoming the meal of a food fetishist who once ate an African tribesman.

And any excuse to visit the local warlord will suffice.

Tweet Tweet Tweet has consistency with the episodic time line full of hooks that pull the viewer into the next episode with rising antagonism and reattempts at reaching short sighted goals which, due to the nature of war, are surrounded by the cooperation of people unwilling to do anything but work together on the inevitable war being constructed on all fronts. War sucks all the cooperation Larsen and Talbot are starved of right out of the sexiness they both crave, but there is something natural and becoming about Larsen on his knees, begging for his wife’s help as she has inevitably won the game between them for now.

About the author

Stephanie King

I am a meticulous writer. Story is my strong suit.

I do not waste time on political "critique" or paranoid "undertones" that might have been an inspiration to a story writer, but clearly are not a main or secondary theme.

I can identify high concept, main and sub theme(s), protagonists and antagonists, secondary character roles, the turning point, the key, the antagonist's story thrust, the spine, twelve sequences, the climax, the resolution, and most importantly, the goal of any film. I am aware of the act structure which can be from three to five acts, generally.

Aristotle elaborates in his Poetics on Plato's Republic on act structure.
