  1. S04.E02: Don't You Wanna Be Obama?

    That's true in and of itself, but he doesn't look good. He's way too bulky (and BTW, vest and trousers don't equal a suit). Suits need to hang to a certain extent to look good, and I smell what The Rock's cookin', and it's stuffed sausage. And okay, TBTB don't like Trump. I get it, and I agree, but I don't need TTD's t-shirts beating me over the head with it. And is "Shut the fuck up, TTD" or some variation thereof supposed to be this season's new catch phrase? I don't need to be beat over the head with that, either.
  2. S01.E10 Nobody is ever missing

    Kendallquiddick. Poor kid never even go to enjoy his hush money.
  3. The End Of The F***ing World

    So much this. That said, does three in row count as binge watching? As if it wasn't enough that I was 65% all in from the trailer, this ep featured Hank Williams. And not III, but The King (forget Jr., talent skipped a generation). That's it. If there was any hesitation before, it's gone, It may be the bottle of Pinot Grigio talking, but I'm down. Show, don't fail me now.
  4. Kingdom (US)

    I do, but no access to my TV for the immediate future. When I click on the episodes to watch them on the website, nothing happens, so I assume they aren't available. Thanks for your suggestion, BTW. I'm willing to pay to watch Season 3, if that's an option somewhere....
  5. Kingdom (US)

    Anyone know where I can watch Season 3? The episodes don't seem to be available on DirecTV.com. Is there anywhere else on line to get them? Thanks.
  6. You're the Worst in the media

    New season starts September 6th. I'll admit it - I didn't recognize Aya in the promos. New hair style? New hair color? New nose? F!@# if I know. It just didn't look like her. But when she yelled, "HEY!!" I knew where I was. (Seriously, though. WTF is so different about her??)
  7. Love (2016)

    A few things...... Loved, loved, loved the Carole Lombard reference (movie star from the 30's who died in an airplane crash) although I don't think it's entirely accurate. That being said, I have no doubt that Gillian dresses like her character in real life. The cast of Community dropped in on The Soup a few times and she was totally slobbed out - no makeup, hair in a rubber band pony tail, sweats, etc. Related, her eyebrow move when Gus was talking about her being in a old time movie, and if she was in a crowd, like in the background, he would recognize her and say she's beautiful.....perfection. Sublime perfection. KyOhTay - "Definiitely back off 'cause his teeth could, like, rip at your flesh". "No, No, he's one of the good ones". "You are covered in fur, and I in flesh." "And neither of you have jobs." LOL. I love this show.
  8. Season 1 Discussion

    Okay. I think I'm in Ep 9, watching for the first time. I'd heard quite a bit about this series and tried to watch it when it was airing several years ago but couldn't get into it. Right now, I'm on the fence. I keep comparing it to The Sopranos and it falls short in a lot of ways, from the un-likability of the characters to the lack of gravitas of the male lead. Speaking of which, I can't get past the simian countenance of Ron Perlman who will always be Vincent, kind of like I keep seeing Peggy Bundy when I look at Gemma. But those are my problems and I own them. What I blame the show for is lousy writing, to wit: I just finished the ep where Jax kills the Fed in Tara's bedroom. Prior to that, the Fed was attempting to rape Tara, and Tara turned it into her (fake) seducing him. So she was almost violated, and then against her will has to pretend to become the sexual aggressor. I can't imagine that either one was much of a turn on for her. But then, after Jax blows a hole in the guy's head right in front of her, Tara and Jax make Sweet, Sweet Love in the same bed. While the guy's open-eyed, gaping-mouthed corpse bleeds all over her floor across the room. That was some serious compartmentalizing if she was up for that. Nope. I just don't think she'd have been in the mood. The show really lost me there, and if it doesn't get better I'm going to drop it for the second (and final) time.
  9. S08.E15: Finding Fizbo

    Meta was my first thought, and then I was certain when it was followed by Haley's line that Alex was wearing the only bra that fit her right. No doubt.
  10. Casual

    Just finished Ep 5 ("Mom"). So I guess the English-guy-one-night- stand-guy is a cast member and not a one-off. Nice to see Ruth Fisher again. Looking much healthier than the last time I saw her. This show's developing a real Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce vibe. I quickly went from curiosity to hate-watching to tuning out Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce.
  11. The Mick

    Oy. Pilot=Uncle Buck, this one=Caddyshack. C'mon, wri-teres...... Chip is so pale I expected him to burst into flames on the golf course.
  12. S03.E10: Episode 10

    My favorite part was the Foucault pendulum.
  13. The Mick

    I liked this back in the '80's, when it was a movie called Uncle Buck. If memory serves, the series based on that failed, too. Only watched the pilot so far because I'm test-driving Hulu. Not impressed, although I did get a laugh out of them eating the owl at the end. I've been meaning to try Sunny, but can't say that Kaitlyn is motivating me any to give that a look. I'll probably give the next couple eps a shot and see how it goes, but based on this I'm seeing formulaic at best.
  14. Lovesick

    I'm glad they brought Jonno back for the awards ep. Probably already mentioned in another thread, but there's a lot of How I Met Your Mother-ness going on here, which is part of why I like it. Plus the novelty of a non-American sitcom (I know there's plenty of foreign programming out there; I just haven't found much that appeals to me). I didn't realize this season was so short so I was mildly shocked when I finished the last ep - not unlike thinking there's more fries in the bag and realizing you ate the last one. Looking forward to the next season.
  15. S08.E11: Hoosier Maid

    Yeah, I give this show a lot of leeway because I'm fond of a lot of its elements - Mike makes me nostalgic for Herman Munster, the coolest character's and actor's names reside in the same body (Brick/Atticus), Axl's King Moonracer self-perception reminds of Christmas, Sue's OTT cheerfulness and optimism are inspirational, Kenny recalls some kind of Carlton The Doorman/Maris Crane/Bob Sacamano hybrid (big fail letting him talk or face the camera there, Show), and ya gotta admire Patricia Heaton's taste in plastic surgeons. But Brick isn't far enough On The Spectrum to not reflectively grab the juice when it spilled, and Frankie isn't slovenly enough to not yell at him to grab it if he didn't. As others have noted, if he had then we wouldn't have had the sting, but the unreality of it took me out of the moment. And when that happens, TV isn't doing its job. And that makes me a Sad Panda.
