Busy Gamer Streaming - 1st 30 mins of Telling Lies

| No Comments

I sometimes enjoy interactive movie games for their bad acting (She Sees Red) and occasional really good acting (5 Dates). Telling Lies (free at the moment on Xbox Game Pass) falls in the "surprisingly good" category though after half an hour, I have almost NO IDEA WHAT THIS GAME IS ABOUT.

But I do like that it has Kerry Bishe (Halt and Catch Fire), Alexandra Shipp (Tick, Tick... Boom), James Scully ("Forty" on You: Season 2), Angela Sarafyan ("Clementine" on Westworld), and Reed Diamond (Homicide: Life on the Streets, Dollhouse), among others. The way it works is you surf keywords that are indexed across what seems like a hundred or more video clips stored on a stolen hard drive. What you find depends on how you process the material.

It took me a few minutes to figure out that some clips were starting in the middle or even at the end, you can fast-forward and rewind to get to the parts you care about, and you can search on words in the subtitled text - making this a potentially deep rabbit hole:
