    Criminal Minds update.

    Every episode has a scene where the team addresses the local police. They all gather in a room. The team stands in front of them in a line. They take turns giving out the info. Legit, everyone says 1 maybe 2 lines and then on to the next person. It is the most awkward thing.

    Keep your eye out here for the "Cop-of-the-Week", whose job it is to watch the team in baffled amazement of everything they do and get in the way for thirty minutes, and will either learn a valuable lesson about proper law enforcement or be gruesomely executed by the unsub just before the arrest, depending on the episode

    I love the impossibly precise choreography of those scenes. Everyone has their one line and then on to the next person. It always looks so meticulously rehearsed and that’s hilarious.

    It's amazing. It's the cadence of one person doing a monologue (ie how a briefing works) but done by 4 people.

    You mean the best hair in the history of television?

    The best thing about that is he directed that. That was a chouce he specifically made for himself. Absolute king shit.

    I can't say I'm a huge fan of Criminal Minds.

    But the Jason Alexander episode is a top-tier episode of television.

    Its amazing. Its legendary. Its wonderful. Its spectacular.

    I dated a girl for about two months, she had a framed print of that picture, signed by Jason Alexander. her dad somehow got it for her birthday.

    that picture was instrumental in me thinking she was dating (or sponge) material. oh my god I was so wrong.

    Looks like the third (and more than likely final) season of The Orville is finally coming out. This time it's exclusive to Hulu.



    I'm excited. It's a good trailer, at least.

    Netflix to employees: Go fuck yourself, we don’t care about you. Also probably put ads in our app.

    They’re putting woke workers to bed.

    In light of internal dissension triggered by productions like Dave Chappelle’s controversial stand-up special, Netflix has reportedly issued a memo to its disgruntled staffers, underscoring that the streaming behemoth values the “artistic expression” of its content creators over each employee’s personal thoughts, beliefs and lifestyles.

    They use the article woke too much, but at least they’re now explicit about their transphobia instead of poorly hiding it I guess.

    From that article:
    “We model ourselves on being a professional sports team, not a family,” wrote Netflix. “A family is about unconditional love. A dream team is about pushing yourself to be the best possible teammate, caring intensely about your team, and knowing that you may not be on the team forever.”

    God I hate how Hard Gregg turned out to be a douchebag, he was great on early season of Criminal minds as simply hard Gregg. Like it really felt like he divorced Dharma and joined the FBI to shore up his cred.

    Also its such a weird statement because man pros on sports teams 100% do not care intensely about the team.

    I mean pro athletes are trading their physical ability to do things later in life for lots of money and the teams only care as long as they are productive and healthy, either of those two things go away and so does the player.

    And along those lines, how many professional sports teams overlook players' beliefs/actions that harm others in the name of $$$?

    I know we'd need to change that one guy's TV show name but if I had three wishes from a genie I'd seriously consider wishing for the word woke to immediately disappear from the English language and everyone who's used it more than five times unironically to disappear from the Earth.

    Also I finished Peacemaker, what a delightful show, two thumbs up from me, in case I'm only the second to last person who's seen it and not the actual last.

    Just FYI - The Flight Attendant just had two all time great episodes of TV back to back between this episode and last week's. Season one definitely had a tighter, more focused story, but this season has gotten wild and is doing some serious work wrangling a bigger cast and more plot threads. And man, Kaley Cuoco is unbelievably good.

    I only watched like... 3 episodes at a friend's insistence before bowing out because goddamn, it was a fucking MESS and skeeved me out, so I didn't get to this part it mentioned:
    Somewhere along the way, either Sheridan or Costner must have learned about the forced sterilizations conducted on Indigenous women in the 1970s at federally operated Indian Health Services facilities. Yellowstone takes this historical reality and distorts it to make white women the victims. At the tender age of 16, Beth [the white daughter of the rich Dutton family*] visits an IHS clinic to get an abortion. Instead, she receives a full hysterectomy because Jamie, her adopted brother, signed the consent forms. Sheridan’s hysterical distortion insults all Native women, but especially the survivors of forced sterilizations.

    Fuckin' wow.

    Yellowstone is real bad and all of its main characters minus the indigenous folks (and one of the sons/the basic ranch hands) are uniformly horrible people who richly deserve all the misery inflicted upon them. As each season goes by I am more and more convinced that Sheridan and Costner are conning the network into letting them and their friends get paid to go camping and horseback riding while (poorly) emoting. It's a very cursed enterprise, but I hope that at the very least each and every indigenous actor/writer/crew member is getting paid for putting up with episode upon episode of White Nonsense.

    We tried watching the Tim McGraw prequel and it's just so demanding I'm not sure if we'll go back and finish it. It's just a lot of drama and lately we've had such a shit few months that it just doesn't fit our evening moods for relaxing.

    The first episode of Kids in the Hall was fun though. The original theme at the beginning certainly gave me high school flashbacks.
