  1. S01.E01: "Daybreak"

    Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the U.S. It is under constant attack by those it borders.
  2. S02.E01: When She Was Bad

    I moved some posts and added spoiler tags to others because Season 6 doesn't happen in Season 2. Please discuss the future in the threads that, somehow, already await it.
  3. Roseanne: Aftermath

    It's been a week. Time to move on from discussing the tweet and reactions to it. Discussion of Roseanne Barr has always belonged in another thread, and that's where some posts have been moved. This thread is where you may discuss the ongoing story: any new information around the cancellation; any new speculation and opinions about the future of the show. Thank you!
  4. TAR in the Media

    This may reflect the seachange created by ABC's canceling Roseanne. Known asshats -- asshats with a list of priors as long as your sleeve -- are perhaps no longer prized as bait.
  5. S01.E01: Part One: "Little Women"

    It was broadcast on BBC-One in the U.K. as a Christmas Special at the end of 2017, and on PBS in the U.S. in May 2018.
  6. Posts in individual episode threads, or "all season" discussion threads, must spoiler-tag references to future events. Character threads and general topic threads do not need spoiler tags. Thank you!
  7. Roseanne: Aftermath

    I'm calling a moratorium on the mental illness and/or racism discussion here. Further discussion can continue in the Roseanne Barr/Roseanne Conner thread if it's civil, non-partisan, and not redundant. And if it doesn't presume to know what makes Roseanne Barr tick-tock.
  8. Your thread for all-episode discussion in Season 5.
  9. S01.E02: Part Two: "Little Women"

    Not her publisher. Alcott would rather Jo have remained single, as she did. The Alcott quote and assertions in this brief piece are confirmed and enlarged upon elsewhere.
  10. Yes. Buffy's explanation in The Sacrifice is, by far, the clearest, the simplest, and the most evocative: "She's more than (my sister). She's me. The monks made her out of me." From there, all else could be said to follow well enough... The problem, of course, is that nothing had ever suggested this before. What we'd been told is that the monks made the Key into a human, and that human into Buffy's sister, so that Buffy would be uniquely motivated to protect her, beyond all others. (As a minion might put it.) I have a hard time seeing "The monks made her out of me" as anything but the hanging chad on a lost scene, or a mulligan performed on a McGuffin.
  11. Questions and Speculations

    He was already glitching, and remembering his own previous iterations. Maybe he too had been in the world outside, and was beginning to remember. As Dolores has, now.
  12. S10.E09: Knee Deep

    FEMA has now come and gone in Lanford. Let's say the same. Thank you!
  13. Media for Mrs. Maisel

    Yes, an "eccentric" doctor, says Broadway World. And if ASP didn't see and fall in love with Levi in the recent revival of the musical She Loves Me, I'll eat my hatbox. It's the signature role in 20th-century musical theater for what we now know as sexy nerds. (Just as Prof. Harold Hill is the signature role in 20th-century musical theater for charismatic talkers who can turn a small town on its ear: male Lorelei Gilmores.)
  14. S02.E05: Akane No Mai

    "Fuck you, Robert."
  15. S10.E09: Knee Deep

    As one of 2 - 3 contractors on a $20K job, Dan would likely clear $3K.
