The Iraq War allegory stuff in BSG doesn't hold up. Well except for the Adama maneuver.

Expanse is the best scifi show ever imo but forcing yourself to like it will not work. Just take a break and try again. It took me a few years before I got into The Wire.

So was he cleared of being a sex pest then? I've lost track.

All his Parks and Rec co-stars back him up and the company that reported the story doesn't exist anymore and the writer quit writing. I think Amy Poehler wouldn't go anywhere near him if there was even a whiff of bullshit.

At first I thought it was too absurd for Queen Latifah but it's way more believable than Liam Neeson hopping over any fences

I re-watched it like 5 years ago and still like it a lot. There's a dip in quality in season 3 or 4 but it's still one of the best finales. It's from Alan Ball, the guy that wrote American Beauty and it has some similar themes as that. Ignore his work with True Blood.

Minor nitpick, but people from Kansas City don't talk like Ted Lasso - that's like a full Alabama football coach accent. :colbert:

edit: maybe that's the point?

I think it's because Jason Sudeikis actually is from Kansas and awkwardly forced that aspect into the show

Finished Plot Against America and god drat Zoe Kazan and Winona Ryder are really great at this acting thing. Also I'm a dumbass and thought "Winchell" was a portmanteau of Winston Churchill for like half the episodes.

Martin Scorsese filmed a 3-hour SCTV reunion special in 2018 including Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short and others. Apparently even Rick Moranis came out of retirement to be in it but there's been no news about it since then. Can't be good.

Finished both seasons of His Dark Materials and it's unbelievably boring. Good cast and production values. it looks expensive as hell. But nothing happens and even major character deaths are forgettable that I need a reminder that this person died in the recap next episode. You'd think a show about someone trying to destroy church and religion would be more exciting but it's more like watching Richard Dawkins walk to the corner store for coffee and a bagel.

Is there a place you buy the coffee mugs they use on The Expanse anymore? Back when it was still on Syfy I swear they sold versions printed with the MCRN logo in the official store, but Iím probably misremembering.

I really want that frosted white/clear one with the Roci nose art that Holden used in the latest episode.

The one with the logo was some dude on Etsy or Red Bubble bootleg printing onto one of these

The movie was a waste of time plot wise too since I don't even remember who killed the singer. I think they were pretty open about just being an excuse to make fan service because of kickstarter.

I did enjoy the Hulu season but Logan never makes sense.

I liked it a lot. It's a little weird alt history situation though where jews are discriminated more than blacks in 1940s America.

Zoe Kazan's character starts out so meek but she quietly puts in one of the best performances in years with a phone call scene.

Yeah I thought it was noticeable that most of the show takes place in a multicultural neighborhood and you hardly see any black people or see any experiences of black people, especially when there's the KKK roaming around.

well, i guess, tell me what was bad about it? i'm not great at watching things and constantly miss things. what am i missing?

i could also think s2 and s3 are even better than s1!

It was the overbearing intro and the annoying side characters.

Seriously though I can't remember why I disliked parts of season 1 but I distinctly remember watching season 2 and thinking Damon lindelof must have been listening to feedback because he made some huge changes.

There's a new Danish language HBO drama on Feb 1st about the SA goon that killed Kim Wall in the homemade submarine. The interesting thing about the show is that unlike most crime shows it goes out of its way to not glorify the killer.
