    The show's always been pully crazy fuckin' SEINFELD things. The pitch of the show is basically "Seinfeld but racheted up to an extreme"

    No I meant the literal shots of them in the Seinfeld apartment and Charlie with Lramers clothes and hair because what is happening

    I saw the latest Better Call Saul. As much as I love watching Gus, Mike, etc. go about their business, that whole half of the show has gotten sundered enough from Jimmy's story that you gotta ask why it's even there. That storyline used to be about Mike but Mike as a character seems settled and satisfied now. He isn't driving the action anymore. My hope is that the focus of the cartel narrative shifts to Nacho rather than to Gus. Nacho's gotten a lot of screen time this season but so far he's been in passive acceptance mode. Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring is a joy to watch but I think they showed us enough of his back story in Breaking Bad that there's not a lot to mine for in Better Call Saul.

    At this point the Mike half of the show is completely self-indulgent, Jimmy's story is actually tackling new and interesting ground and Mike's plot is "here's some old shit!"

    Yeah but my comedic timing was way off due to faulty image tags so you get the W on this one.

    Uh. The new Castle Rock episode was very good. Sissy Spacek really really knocks it out of the park.
    Maybe it was because the structure of the episode reminded me a lot of The Constant, but I was super worried they were going to add a supernatural element to Ruth's dementia. I'm very glad they just played that straight. As it was harrowing as hell.

    Is Castle Rock an episodic anthology thing?

    I was never actually clear on that.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    It's an anthology series with each season telling a single story

    I watched Patriot on my days off, and while I found it only so-so most of the time, that one scene with John and the homicide detective right before the interview was wonderful.

    I watched the first three episodes of Castle Rock! It's a bit spooky, but I'm early in it so the spooky bits are mostly just gearing up.

    I think they kinda did, though. I believe the gunshots that bring Alan to the house are the gunshots that kill him.

    Familiarity with Schoolhouse Rock is helpful, but not necessary

    I made sure to watch all of Castle beforehand just in case.

    In all seriousness though, Castle Rock stands on its own, but familiarity with King's work unlocks a lot of Easter Eggs. In particular: Needful Things, The Dark Half, The Shawshank Redemption, Cujo, The Body (Stand by Me), and The Shining.

    One of the main characters, Alan Pangborn, is featured in the first two of those.

    Edit: Almost forgot the other sideways referenced story set in Castle Rock, The Dead Zone; the reason Castle Rock probably doesn't want the new gazebo Molly is proposing.

    If you told me that Disenchanted was one of those "I made an AI watch all of The SImpsons and Futurama and it wrote this" jokes I would believe you. The pilot is just Matt leaning on his joke formulas over and over for 28 minutes.

    The pilot 2 parter is the weakest part of the show. It picks up fairly fast and by the end I think they really have a handle on what the show should be.

    I have a podcast now. It's about video games and anime!Find it here.

    We are up to episode 7 of Disenchanted and I'm liking it

    Not loving it but its charming enough and I like the characters a fair bit

    The best part is the music though, everything is so jaunty!

    I'm 5 episodes into Castle Rock and this show is very much my shit.

    But my gosh, the references and the winks to the audience are kinda ridiculously blatant huh.

    The only reference I rolled my eyes over was Jackie Torrence.

    Ross used to smoke pot in college.

    On this particular issue he's not calling the cops.

    also chandler would not snitch because he would not know if pot was cool or not, and he desperately needs to be liked

    and joey is your pal, he don't give a fuck

    monica, rachel, and ross would drive you directly to prison, tho

    Phoebe doesn't trust cops. No way she's narcing. She's from the streets.
