you can tell they're wrapping up. The thing I haven't liked about this season so far is the 80's new wave soundtrack playing too loud. (and I like that music, too)

Also, when is someone going to kill Beeman? That MF should have gone a loooooong time ago.:fuckyou:

Whaaaaaaaaay?!
He’s, like, obscenely likable!! Honesty, there’s just something about his voice and delivery and naïveté that makes me like him even when he’s acting a fool.

Neither of them would kill Beeman unless they had no other option. Well, maybe Elizabeth would, but I don’t think that’s where things are heading.

It’s not going to be like Breaking Bad, with Walter and Hank colliding and someone dying once the beans are spilled. It will be weirder than that, I promise.

Well, I guess you're watching a different Beeman. I think he's a thug in about the worst way. The treatment he gives to his spies/informants is pretty fucking awful. Kill Beeman, please! Defenestrate the guy...

just started GLOW on netlix

 


after halt and catch fire, the new addition to 80s tv archeology (now that the 80s are as ancient as the 60s), and it’s pretty good so far!

alison brie and marc maron are in it, plus that weird doctor from the last seasons of nurse jackie

so i was looking for more info on it and apparently—holy shit!—it was a real thing

I need to re-watch this sometime soon, and it very much was a real thing. There's a documentary on Netflix about it too, if you want some more real history.


One of the girls from the real promotion got added to the WWE Hall of Fame on friday as well.

Definitely thug moments but the character is a lot more than that, and has shown himself to have a (potentially overactive to the point of malfunctioning) conscience on multiple occasions.

Also, that voice! The fuck? How can you not like a guy who talks like that? It’s like he was made in a sad best friend factory!

Never realized this was such a “thing.” Used to catch snippets in passing while flipping through channels, lolled a bit, but not sure I’ve ever watched a full episode.

dude! these are mythical creatures, not simply characters

get to watchin’! start from the beginning of course. no story arc of any kind, just you get to know them in the right order

yes indeed. Highly recommended. They are absolutely fabulous :D
The same goes for French and Saunders even though it's a completely different format, more like a sketch show, a bit similar to Little Britain. But e.g. their re-enactment of famous movie scenes were brilliant.

Did any of you watch the new Roseanne already? I'm, very curious. I used to love that series back in the days. I hope it will be aired on public TV in my country soonish (I don't have netflix or whatever you hip folks are watching these days)

Problem I have with Joanna Lumley is that I can't take her seriously, because she looks exactly the same in real life as she was in that series. But she made some fantastic documentaries, such as Joanna Lumley in the Land of the Northern Lights
(there's also a complete version on YT but of lesser quality)

Legion season 2 episode 1

Weird. Maybe not as good as episode 1 of season 1, which just sucked me right the fuck in. Still pleasantly bizarro and the only X-title worth mentioning.

Two more episodes left of the latest Better Call Saul season.

also, watching new Trailer Park Boys season. sad knowing that the actor playing Lahey died.

Going through all of Star Trek TNG right now. I remember unattentively watching a lot of the reruns in the 90s and early 2000s as a child. Didn't care for it much then, but then again I was a kiddo. I do see a lot of the appeal nowadays. The world-building if executed with finesse, is quite captivating and of course the philosophical elements are there as well. The series is far from spotless though. Season 1 and some of the early episodes of Season 2 can be a chore to sit through from time to time.

Speaking of GLOW, they're back with season 2 in late June :D

ilduclo 04.21.2018 02:09 PM

Atlanta Season 2. A couple of odd episodes, but real creative TV. Recco!
