Way to completely miss the point. I assume you mean the person who said the experience ended her dream of being a comedian and his follow up was to mock the idea that someone's dream could be so easily squashed if it really was their "dream"

He was still 100% that Louis CK was in the wrong but that the allegations were hilarious as gently caress to read about when you knew him. The only little support bit was Chappelle saying "did they really have to take everything from him? Was he really as bad as Weinstein etc?"

This feels like they read a headline somewhere and didn't bother reading the story or try putting it into context.

If you don't want your dead body seen publicly then maybe don't kill yourself in a public place. Especially one literally called the Suicide Forest because it's a place where people go to kill themselves publicly.

Unless the outrage is that the dude made money off of it in which case how is that different from literally any news or true crime show or documentary ever.

Animaniacs could lose everything that isn't the Waners or Pinky & the Brain and nothing of value would be lost. I guess Slappy Squirrel had a few good moments but then they did that "Very Special Episode" where she gets dementia or something and it pretty much ruined the character for me.

What? It has plenty of decapitations and murders and poo poo. Just this past season it had the empire using a weapon that disintegrated a bunch of people.

If you're talking about actual storytelling then I dunno. Rebels is one of the few official Star Wars things to like even touch on the fact that the force isn't just good/evil.

Rebels also features a droid with no regard for human life in Chopper, who delights in spacing storm troopers every other episode.

It's insane to me that this was resolved with a public apology that was then accepted. That hasn't happened once with any of the other poo poo coming out about men in politics and entertainment. It's remarkable.

Holy poo poo, I know reddit is considered a toxic place, but I always just thought that meant the subreddits that were blantantly misogynist, racist, creepy, whatever. I typically only read the front page or all as a news/video/gif aggregator. The news reddit had the Aziz story and holy loving poo poo every loving commemt is about how this "millenial" woman is really the one in the wrong for retroactively withdrawing consent.

Jesus what a loving ego. It's one thing to push back against criticism, but yelling about how young and hip you are and nobody cool would ever bother listening to your critic makes it really hard for people to take you seriously.

It's not enough that the whole Aziz Ansair thing is polarizing as gently caress, but even the author herself is now stepping into it and making it worse when any competent journalist or PR rep would say "Don't loving do this, just say you stand by everything in the article".

It seriously reads like how Trump tweets.

Back when it I was headline news I loved it for a quick update. Right now I just use it for forensic files when I want to fall asleep on night shifts.

How is the Orville if I liked TNG as a concept and thought the show was kinda slow? I liked a lot of the actors but 90s me got kinda bored by filler episodes. Loved stuff like the borg or the time loop episode though.

You will like it. Its TNG but people don't pretend to be all high brow. They have fun with karaoke and Seinfeld, not string quartets and they call each other dicks when warranted.

Agreed. When it comes to comedies, a beeped swear can be a joke in and of itself. The Middleman uses bleeped swears (complete with censor bars!) to great effect, and the Good Place has a pretty forking funny variation on bleeped swearing. Itís actually weird hearing South Park characters actually say ďgently caressĒ in the video games and uncensored episodes.

Yeah, it is situational but the bleeping can sometimes be funnier than the swearing. For instance in the South Park where they say "poo poo" a lot and they discuss the rules on how you are allowed to say it, bleeping it out when it breaks the rules, but not when it doesn't.
