    30 Rock Season 7

    Is that Princess Carolyn?

    Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (NBC)

    I wasn't so much keying on the pandemic angle and the logistics of securing the photo. More that they featured players who have other commitments or have ostensibly been written out in the promo for the next season.

    Good to know. ;)

    What We Do in the Shadows (FX)

    It's not a rip-roaring romp, but it nonchalantly swerves into the absurd in a way that is amusing. If you're looking for a different show that carries a similar Matt Berry brilliance vibe to WWDitS, give Year of the Rabbit a Try first.

    Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (NBC)

    Is that photo specific for the season 2 announcement, or a stock show photo. . . .

    Is the 'hover for forum listing' feature just gone with the new software?

    Or am I glitching during the upgrade? Used to be able to just pause your mouse over the forum list on the upper left, and navigate from there. New format is a little more clunky, where you have 2-3 forum buttons strewn about, then you have to click on one and adjust yourself to the resulting...

    Bosch Season 6

    Back in season 2, Captain Lewis [married to Billets' ex-husband] dressed him down for having his sleeves rolled up in the bullpen.

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    I believe you are referring to Juan Bolsa, and I'm having trouble figuring how Lalo makes an assessment that Bolsa is the perp without homing in on Nacho as well.

    Homeland - Season 8

    To the extent this 'doesn't make sense' it doesn't make sense from a narrative POV, not a character POV. Clearly the writers have striven to craft a situation where a single surefire piece of intelligence to stave off a nuclear conflict is in the hands of the enemy. Treason, or the character's...

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    Striving all your life to be a successful attorney doesn't automatically equate to striving all your life to be a contract, property, and acquisition attorney for a corporate client [NTTAWWT]. To put it in HTF terms, striving all your life to be a valued entertainer doesn't automatically equate...

    Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (NBC)

    Thank you Jane Levy, thank you ZEP. . . Now, after all these grueling years, I can enjoy '(I don't care) I love it' without risking the mental image of a coked-up Lena Dunham in a mesh crop top.

    Bosch Season 6

    This is the 'neglected' series I have chosen to catch up on in quarantine. Started S1 last night. Wish me luck. ;)

    The Plot Against America (HBO)

    I've been searching my recollections for what exactly the father Herman reminds me of. It's not so much that he's wrong about things, as he's so passionate and confrontational that he grinds even his sympathizers down and ultimately works counter to his aims. And I think I've got it, reminds...

    Good Lord, I haven't heard OOTI in DECADES. That was perfect study music back in college. Peppy and catchy without being distracting.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    Don't worry about it Larry, HBO will pay for the porn. . .

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    Adding to, no one but the inner circle knows for sure, but it seems like Larry patterned a good bit of Cheryl's persona on his real ex-wife Laurie. I know she's into LA-type philanthropy and 'green' causes like Cheryl, and he wrote the separation/divorce into the show soon after they divorced...

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    And yes, that means that Albert Brooks was born, Albert Einstein.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    Larry lied about the mailman failing to deliver an invitation to a fundraiser he weaseled out of attending, then when the mailman confronted him Larry advised him not to initiate future confrontations while wearing shorts.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    Don't think network TV would let Jerry get interrogated about the tickle in his anus? Maybe S&P would let him hire a hooker for the carpool lane? ROFL ROFL

    This Is Us (NBC)

    Friends had a great bit with the hall pass a generation ago, and Hollywood actually made an entire movie out of the idea about a decade ago. It's more of a comedic premise than a reality, but it's not like this was some out-of-the-blue notion.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    Positively giddy that Larry 'went there' with the MAGA thing, because poltics aside I've long been fascinated by how Larry's Curb character seems the closest in personality to Trump, given the divergent demographics of their respective acolytes.

    This Is Us (NBC)

    I don't know if this is intended as a criticism, but for me it's the singular best part of the entire show. I've seen enough mainstream network stuff to be tired of straightforward narratives. Half the time, I watch shows not for the actual content, but daydreaming about the writers room...

    Your "Top 20" Favourite Television Shows of the Last 10 years (2010–2019)

    If I HAD TO encapsulate the core of The Leftovers in a sentence, without spoiling anything, it would be 'what would The Rapture look like if it STILL didn't explain anything?' A Rapture-like event happens, then the show is about the lives of people making sense of what happened to those left...

    Prodigal Son (FOX)

    So is her parentage, equally irrelevant. No offense, but it seemed like you were opening a 'what's her story' discussion, as opposed to a 'doing a fine job on the show' discussion. I was pretty scrupulous in keeping to the broadest of strokes, but if people were wondering 'where do I know her...

    Prodigal Son (FOX)

    I didn't realize that Aurora Perrineau is Harold's daughter. I like his recurring role on "The Rookie". Besides her father's profile from Lost and Oz, she's a little higher on the media consciousness radar because she's the one who accused a scribe from 'Girls' of . . . impropriety [we won't...

    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 14 (FXX)

    Speaking of seeing from a mile away, the pantless reveal when Charlie and Frank decide to ditch the toe spoon heroin shooting chicks was sublime.

    Danny McBride & Jody Hill's THE RIGHTEOUS GEMSTONES (HBO)

    Carrying on a theme of the thread, episode 3 opens with a prominent feature of Baby Billy's Walton and Two Goggins. ;)

    Danny McBride & Jody Hill's THE RIGHTEOUS GEMSTONES (HBO)

    You think that was something? Rewatch the prayer montage at the end of episode two. Keefe is, with an excruciating degree of unambiguousness, going commando while spotting Kelvin's bench press.

    Danny McBride & Jody Hill's THE RIGHTEOUS GEMSTONES (HBO)

    Paraphrasing from memory, but pretty close IIRC. Brother asks if she's alone [not supposed to be shacking up with fiance] She says she is Brother sees fiance on landing trying to hide by crouching low Brother asks 'ain't that your boyfriend up there doing a shitty job of hiding' She says 'no...
