    I just finished S2E7 of The Leftovers. God damn.
    What a wild fucking take on the hero’s journey. That was a hell of an “all is lost” moment, what with his savior blowing his brains out.

    And the start of E8
    He is reborn.

    I love it!

    Oh fun fact, the song at the end credits of the most recent WWDitS is "Gather Up" from Matt Berry's Kill the Wolf album which is an awesome name for a very Matt Berry sounding album.

    On Tuesday, Bravo issued a statement saying, “Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules.”

    New cast members Brett and Max had racist tweets that were found after they joined the show

    On Insta Live last week, former cast member Faith Stowers said two years ago Stassi and Kristen called the cops on her because they thought she looked like a black woman pictured in a Daily Mail article who was wanted for theft

    I’m not. It’s cheap as fuck reality TV.

    I even watched a needlessly long Youtube video about Cops less than a year ago and came away from that with the understanding that it wasn't still being made

    well, I never claimed not to be very stupid, so that's on me

    And it gets edited down to fill 30 minutes or an hour, I forget which. It showcases multiple precincts per episode. Plenty of places to hide what really happens

    Plus, often times they straight up tell the crew to turn off the camera

    yeah, why wouldn't they want cameras following them around that they can then edit to make free PR for themselves

    This lead to my wife and I looking up when the Bad Boys song originally came out. Turns out it was in 1987, a few years before Cops started airing (and eight years before the first Bad Boys movie).

    We were also surprised that it was by a Jamaican band. It had never really registered in my brain that it was a reggae song, it was just categorized as "It's the Bad Boys song" instead of any specific genre.

    No, but I don't think I've thought about Cops since the My Name is Earl episode (and before that, not since the X-Files episode).

    I don't have any trouble believing it, though.

    @Juggernut @Gustav it occurs to me that if you're into Matt Berry's particular brand of prog folk nonsense, you may also enjoy the satirical Klezmer stylings of Michaelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen.

    matt berry playing doctor who would be kind of a meme but i'd probably start watching doctor who again

    after like ten years of the doctor being the smartest and best and coolest genius ever it'd be nice to have him be just a pure fucking moron

    I seem to remember the Doctor falling ass backwards into solutions was more of a thing in the older series. But berry could take it to a whole new pompous level.

    Amazon making a US live action adaptation of The Promised Neverland.

    Now before people go oh god another live action anime adaptation: it’s written by the co-writer of spiderverse, it has a western setting so it could actually work without feeling culturally appropriative, and it’s also actually good, not just Anime Good. This is one to keep an eye on.

    Is Doom Patrol adding any new cast members this season?

    It seems strange for a superhero show not to, but on the other hand, they've got a pretty good ensemble already.

    Doom Patrol trailer/S1 spoilers
    I'm glad Rita is focusing on her powers, since we only got to see them used once and then they were forgotten.

    Curious about the tone, since obviously everyone's issues aren't magically fixed, but they did do some heavy lifting last season. Definitely there for whenever Cliff reunites with his daughter.

    I really liked season 1, really looking forward to this.

    But that's a bad trailer. I get that it being on MAX means that a lot of people will be discovering it for the first time but a bunch of those music queues are weirdly placed and edited and there's a lot of stepping on lines. Maybe that's just my job intruding but boy did that trailer just feel off to me.
