  • 808 - How It’s Gotta Be (Midseason Finale)

    Really seems like Gimple is playing Chandler wrong, although I think there is a strong chance that they are somehow going to "heal" him (or it's not a zombie bite at all or something)


    Cold open S08E09

    Rick: "Carl ..."
    Carl: "Dad ..."
    Rick: "Carl, I ...."
    Carl: "Uh..."
    Rick: [gets tears in his eyes]
    Carl: "Hey Dad, you know what? ...."
    Rick: [sobbing]: "What is it, Carl?"
    Carl: [smiling]: It's not a zombie bite, Dad. Enid and I were fooling around, and uh .... she got a little freaky"
    Rick: "Goddammit, Carl!"

    Can someone translate the Trump tweet this morning regarding Kirsten Gillibrand for me?  Anxious to see the impression of the Pacific Northwest Libertarian types.
    Pretty much insinuating like a 5 year old that she's a turn coat and when she came to him for campaign contributions she was willing to undermine her integrity. However, since the individual tweeting is also the same person who thinks grabbing a woman between the legs is a proper pick up technique, I wouldn't be surprised if he was trying to say she'd even provide sexual favors for campaign contributions. Like I said, a 5 year old. 

    “They let you”


    let1
    let/
    verb
    1. 1
      not prevent or forbid; allow.
      "my boss let me leave early"
      synonyms:allow to, permit to, give permission to, give leave to, authorize to, sanction to, grant the right to, license to, empower to, enable to, entitle 

    Well if a woman “lets” you do something how is it improper? nothing in the definition of let implies impropriety. 

    He was criticisizing Gillibrand because she’s sought donations from him in the past, any implication of sexual favors is your inference, it’s not in the language of what was said 
    Let's see, if I walk  up to you and apropos of nothing, suddenly punch you in the face, and you don't kill me right afterwards, does that mean you "let" me do it? because I feel that's about as much consent that Trump theoretically received in these incidents.

    I'm also surprised to hear you defending this side of Trump. I had the idea  you were more personally conservative with behavior stuff, what with all your extra shirts and all. Maybe that's a leap.

    I don’t believe the video is in and of itself a confession to sexual assault as many make it out to be.

    BTW, Kodi is also on there which is a nice media center...  And also itself perfectly legal but makes it real easy to collect and play pirated videos and stuff.  You're well on your way down the path of the dark side, young padawan.

  • TV Critics Top 2017 Shows Lists

    @Elisa  Lol, Sam Esmail is still salty about Chris Ryan's list:


    And tbh, I'm still salty thinking about Chris saying the Billions is a better NY show than Master of None, when Aziz went out of his way to devote an entire episode to the New Yorkers that both television shows and real life people usually ignore. Minorities and immigrants, and the service people that the rich white douchebags of Chris' 
    New York show do not give a second glance to.

  • The most underrated shows? (In your opinion)

    Dee said:
    Alright, I'm starting my own list now, but it's a mile long so I'll divide it in sections/genres... first one: 

    Crime/detective shows: 
    Broadchurch Two great main characters, the English countryside, foul play. Addictive! 

    The fall Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan (in his best role yet? Surprisingly good!). Very dark mood. "Psycho creepy murderer" scenario brilliantly executed in this one! 

    Happy Valley A female lead detective. A missing child. Addictive! (Only seen 1st season). 

    Luther  Idris Elba. A badass "copper" in England. Great intrigue with corruption on the force and Luther battling his personal demons.  

    All of these are British fictional crime shows and I love them all! That's saying a lot from someone who "hates crime shows". :) I feel like they haven't reached the larger world audience. But I could be wrong. It's just that the only person I know who has heard about these shows is my mom, (who devours every crime show in the history of time!)  :)


    I’ve seen all those - I’m a UK crime show junkie. I think they all definitely had critic love overseas (I’m in Australia), if not large audiences. I don’t know about the US, but here those shows tend to be on the “old people” channel and don’t get much fanfare so people don’t know they are there. 
    Most of these aired on Netflix here, except Broadchurch originally aired via either PBS or BBC America. Broadchurch was so popular that it earned the abysmal American remake (I didn't watch the American version).

    Happy Valley is my favorite of the bunch. Sarah Lancashire is just phenomenal, and it's an excellent show all around. I loved the first season of Broadchurch but haven't heard great things about the second season.

    Everyone loves Idris Elba, and there was talk of doing an American version of Luther (again, why?), but I think that fell apart.

    I didn't care for The Fall. I'm usually a big fan of Gillian Anderson, but not in this. Jamie Dornan, OTOH, is surprisingly great.

    I also really like The Tunnel, not so much for the story but for the characters. I'm a big Stephen Dillane fan, and he's fantastic in this, as is Clémence Poésy. S3 is currently airing in the UK, but I don't know when we'll get it here.
    I agree Happy Valley is the best of the bunch - everyone in it is so good. Shirley Henderson is SO creepy in S2! 

    Stephen Dillane is great in The Tunnel, and his charm as that character is a lot to do with why I was always Team Stannis in GoT.

  • TV Critics Top 2017 Shows Lists

    Paste Magazine has some great choices for best episodes of 2017. I haven't seen half of these, but I was pleasantly surprised at some of the choices (like The Americans "Darkroom," which was both great and pivotal to the show and the characters). I would add:

    The Young Pope ep. 09, which starts with an uncut shot of the Pope and Cardinal Spencer debating abortion in the Sistine Chapel, dips into a 1970's NY crime/character drama, then ends with that (trying to be nonspoilery) fabulous montage over a pop song.

    Better Call Saul "Chicanery." I truly appreciate BCS for being a stupendously well-executed show even though I'm not emotionally invested in it. But this is a great episode of television in every way and proves (as if we need proof) that Michael McKean should win something for this role.
