    the end of the rabbit hole was that ezra miller has a serious drug problem and refused to get treatment, in addition to actually being that volatile

    also like garlic bread said, ezra is enby

    ezra miller uses they/them pronouns

    Everything I found points to it being an actual altercation where they choked a fan down for bothering them at their local bar. No one seems to be saying anything else so nothing came of it, it's just been camped in the back of my mind as Miller popped up on The Stand and Invincible.

    Hours after the episode aired, a statement written on Morrissey’s behalf by his manager, Peter Katsis, appeared on the singer’s Facebook page, calling the show “hurtful and racist”.

    “Surprising what a ‘turn for the worst’ the writing for The Simpsons TV show has taken in recent years,” the statement reads. “Poking fun at subjects is one thing … but when a show stoops so low to use harshly hateful tactics like showing the Morrissey character with his belly hanging out of his shirt (when he has never looked like that at any point in his career) makes you wonder who the real hurtful, racist group is here.

    Buh?

    thoughts on Lost, relationship stuff, I guess spoilers for the whole series
    it's sort of a shame that they can't help themselves with the melodrama between them because early on Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly do a pretty good job selling that early romance primarily by just...having the characters seem happy to spend time together, like, they just legitimately seem to enjoy each other's company which gives them some nice, easy chemistry. And then they spend way too much time drawing out their backstories and making them really obstinate and vaguely shitty, which undercuts a lot of the love triangle they were trying to build, and then they put Sawyer and Juliet together and it's just like, "I guess Jack and Kate sort of deserve each other." And I like those characters more than most.

    it's weird how rough that love triangle/quadrangle is because there are a lot of really good romances in this show, and the best episode of the show is centered around Desmond & Penny, and...well, I dunno!

    Watching the first episode of Mare of Easttown (HBO, crime, fading small town and melancholic female detective) and I already understand why reviews were setting off fireworks over Kate Winslet's acting, and not just the part where she bothered to learn the Delco accent, i.e. the increasingly rare Philly signifier most series and actors don't even attempt to pin down. The setting is phenomenally depicted too - despairing but somehow cozy interiors, the mood-setting music is chosen well and the characters are immediately sympathetic and real.

    True, but generally folks seem to have a lot of scorn for the HIMWM ending, and Hillary Duff isn't really a household name these days so I'm not sure how much of a draw she'll function as.

    yeah this is definitely the reason, but I think they have perhaps mis-evaluated how enduring the popularity of that show is

    Unless the show is just that Lizzie MacGuire sequel series that Disney+ canned with the serial numbers filed off, I don't see how this will manage to land well with anyone, as it's tying itself to one of the top three worst tv finales of all time.

    because it's hard to do and also it sounds terrible (the accent itself, i haven't seen hers)

    i've been out of philly for 10 years and i can't pull the accent if i try, it only comes out when i'm angry

    it takes a lot of conviction

    She's still quite popular amongst the Freeform/TV Land set.

    Her show Younger is in its 7th season and still kicking.

    I am surprised about how well HIMYM was talked about in that article, but I think it’s actually a strong concept as long as they don’t make the same mistakes as the original. Ie. a terrible ending, problematic characters and the fact that it went on for too long.

    It's extremely weird to me when someone comes away with an opinion on Tiger King that's not "all these people (but especially the dude with the weird harem) need to be fired into the sun."

    It's like, are we even watching the same show?

    I haven't watched the show but the vibe I got from everyone who did was that everybody agreed she was a murderer. So that's really weird.

    got to Do No Harm in the Lost rewatch
    I have to assume they were writing the episode and were sitting there like, "alright, it's supposed to be sad that Boone dies, right? How in the hell do we make people sad that Boone died," and Michael Giacchino was like "it's ok I'm about to weaponize music"

    also I remember when I found out Ian Somerhalder went to the Vampire Diaries and people were like, "wow, he's really sexy and charismatic on that show! everyone loves him!" and I'm still pretty confused about that one actually
