    I had an aunt Gayle who show Gayle, or at least the fraught nature of her relationship with her family is uncomfortably close to.

    one of the best parts of The Witcher is now when I'm confronted by some meaningless task my depression has decided is Too Much, Man (another phrase I've taken)

    my beleaguered "...fuck." will be a reference rather than just a gloomy cussword

    The thing that makes the show have no bad characters is that even the annoying, antagonistic folks like Mr. Frond or Hugo or Jimmy Pesto are treated like actual people who have motivations and weaknesses and little personal moments that stop them from being just 1 dimensional YOU SHOULD HATE THEM characters.

    Ok so this seemed like a good use of my time earlier but it probabaly wasnt. Just imagine its Bill Hader saying it in his Pacino voice
    Jimmy Pesto, Jimmy Pesto. I nursed him through two divorces, a cocaine rehab, and a pregnant receptionist. God's creature, right? God's special creature. I've warned him, Teddy. I've warned him every step of the way. Watching him bounce around like a fucking game. Like a wind-up toy. Like 280 pounds of self-serving greed on wheels. The next thousand years is right around the corner, Teddy, and Jimmy Pesto... take a good look, because he's the poster child for the next millennium.

    These people, it's no mystery where they come from! You sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with its desire. You build egos the size of Cathedrals; fiber-optically connect the world to every eager impulse; grease even the dullest dreams with these dollar-green, gold-plated fantasies until every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own God. And where can you go from there?

    And as we're scrambling from one deal to the next; who's got his eye on the planet! The air thickens, the water sours, even the bee's honey takes on the sour taste of radio-activity. They just keep comin' faster and faster; there's no chance to think, to prepare: its Buy Futures; Sell Futures; when there is no Future! We got a runaway train, boy! We got a billion Eddie's all joggin' into the future. Every one of them getting ready to fist-f-k God's ex-planet, lick their fingers clean as they reach out toward their pristine cybernetic keyboard to tote up their f---in billable hours!

    And then it hits home: You've got to pay your own way, Teddy; it's a little late in the game to “buy out now.”

    Your belly's too full, your dick is sore, your eyes are blood-shot and you're screamin' for someone to help. But guess what ­ there's no one there! You're all alone, Teddy; you're God's special little creature!

    Maybe it's true, maybe God threw the dice once too often! Maybe he let us all down.

    I finished up season 3 of Runaways last night.

    Great show, probably still my second favorite MCU property. It definitely felt like they knew they were going to get cancelled and decided to condense two and a half seasons into ten episodes, but honestly, I think it all kind of worked?
    Wrapping up the Gib stuff fairly quickly rather than giving a whole season of everyone second guessing one another and trying to figure out who the traitor is was a good move. I'm still a very big fan of what this show did with the premise of Runaways, and changing it from Alex is definitively the traitor and a villain without remorse into everyone has their own way of betraying the team because everyone is in pain is such a solid move. But it also would have made an entire season of second guessing frustrating and repetitive feeling.

    And then Morgan was a bunch of fun, solid comic book villain with an evil plan that's exactly the right mix of smart and dumb. Giving the team an unassailably villainous villain (even when Nico was tempted by her power) is a solid thing for them to go out on.

    I also really liked the time travel episode as a final episode. Obviously it left things open for a potential sequel and all of that, but as a way of sending off these characters, showing who they were when we first met them was fun. And it provided a partial conclusion to the Alex stuff that the Morgan arc introduced, which was good enough for me.

    Oh my god, Titans S2E6. The scene where
    Krypto catches a rocket and spins it back around to hit the guy that fired it

    led to me collapsing in tearful laughter, pausing the video while still laughing, then walking outside to contemplate what I had just seen, before returning (and re-watching that scene).

    Bob's Burgers just does not do it for me and I don't know why.

    Not saying I dislike it, just that it never quite gets there.

    Most episodes I have seen have had funny bits and been entertaining but once they are over there's just nothing about it that makes me want to come back and watch more.

    I have a friend who can't get into it at all because he finds the animation style so offputtimg. Which is disappointing to me, but understandable given how I could never like the Star Wars cartoons he tried to get me to watch for the same reason.

    One of my favorite little things in Bob's Burgers is Bob always saying "Oh, hey Marshmallow" whenever he first sees Marshmallow in an episode.

    It like, isn't really a running gag because it isn't a joke, but it always makes me, like, do a quick chuckle and is also a nice character beat of Bob thinking Marshmallow is cool as hell and always going out of his way to greet her.

    Mom is a pretty empathetic show, or at least what I've seen of it in syndication at my parents' house is pretty empathetic. Like...a lot of the characters can be shitty and mean, but the whole point of the show is that they're all recovering alcoholics and are actively trying to be better people, and, you know, sometimes they backslide

    if you were uh...looking to hear someone defend a Chuck Lorre show, there's one for you

    Mom hits all the right notes from my personal experiences in a similar family. Anna Faris and Allison Janney give great performances, the scripts aren't always stellar but those two have put on a clinic on sliding through comedy/tragedy/heart warming without pulling you out of the scene. And the show treats a lot of complicated topics with respect to how complicated they can be, which is above and beyond most sitcoms. Roseanne and Reba are the only other shows I can think of that worked that hard at presenting life "as is".

    All that said, I can rarely watch more than an episode of Mom at a time as it brings up a lot of childhood baggage for me

    It's one of those shows where I genuinely can't imagine how anyone could enjoy it.

    I've probably complained about Dracula enough already, but I will admit that I might have enjoyed if it had been my first exposure to Moffat's writing. The aggressively witty dialogue and unnecessary plot twists could have had a decent amount of novelty value if I hadn't been expecting them.
