    SNL had a skit about a social media rep posting inappropriate stuff to the Sara Lee social media accounts

    https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/harry-styles-saturday-night-live-sara-lee-913867/
    The sketch got #SaraLee to trend on Twitter, and Styles fans flooded the brand’s actual Instagram account with references to the scene.

    People have zero chill

    At least Sara Lee is taking it well:
    Sara Lee’s parent company, Bimbo Bakeries USA, responded to the sketch in a New York Post article. “We didn’t participate in creating the skit and its content doesn’t align with Sara Lee Bread’s brand. But, we all know SNL pushes the envelope for laughs and we are taking it in stride.”

    Also, Bimbo Bakeries?

    We're coming up on awards season, which means it's currently "For Your Consideration" season, AKA, Screener Season. Studios/networks send out DVDs of their shit so people can vote for them for awards and whatnot

    Netflix usually sends out shitloads of DVDs, which is both wasteful and dumb. But this year, they sent me a gift card for three months of Netflix, and a list of their shit I should check out.

    I wish more companies would outright bribe me.

    I'm rewatching Boy Meets World and man I like the first season way better than I ever have. I've never really liked it but season 2 seems way weaker overall. Eric loses a lot of the nuance he started with and doesn't really become the lovable idiot he eventually settles on until later. Mostly though season 1 has a really great depiction of loving parents that kind gets shaved off over time. It feels like the first few episodes establish them as parents who really remember what it's like to be kids but also know when to set good boundaries. I'm guessing that the principal writers for the later half of season 1 and 2 didn't really pick up on that. They become more conservative and less understanding. Worse yet the loving relationship between the two of them begins with talking things out and getting on the same page and each showing each other that they are loved. There end up being a lot of jokes in the later half of season 1 and 2 that amount to the mother hitting the father or the father complaining about how terrible marriage is and it feels really at odds with the love they show so openly.

    Still a great show though.

    Still a great show though.

    Season 1 has some really good episodes. The Anne Frank one where Cory teaches a class is good, as is the one where Alan lets Cory stay up late to watch a game and Mr. Feeny won't allow him to retake a test. That one is a good struggles of parenthood episode, and the part with Mr. Feeny near the end where he tells the story of his father being an alcoholic asshole was great.

    Speaking of 90s sitcoms, the posting of the Smart Guy intro got me to rewatch the pilot on Disney+, and other than new show awkwardness that most shows have, it was very good. Very cheesy, but also pretty grounded. They do a good job with the father character, Floyd, and establishing that he is a widower raising three kids without just spelling it out. And the plot is pretty relatable, and establishes they are going to be tackling how difficult it is for everyone having the main character TJ going from 4th to 9th grade.

    never die on
