    Yeah, there are different rules for different productions, though I think Jeopardy had a labor dispute over reusing questions. Similarly, not every daytime talk show was a struck production, and you can look across all of sports media to find out that nobody went on strike on say, ESPN.

    So Philip and Elizabeth need to break in to a repair shop to bug the fbi mail room robot. As soon as the old lady who was working late started talking about her family it was clear this was going to be a harrowing one. And the episode just before with the grim death of the South African white supremacist.

    Think we're gonna need something light hearted to watch between episodes!

    I also just find Matthew McFadyen saying insane shit really funny. Someone revive The Thick of It and get him in there. I wanna see Peter Capaldi yell at him.

    I have zero interest in Succession but every now and then I'll remember MacFadyen is in it and think "but maybe ...?"

    Prior to this his best scumbag role was as POD in Ambassadors, and I very much do want to see how this one stacks up.

    Been enjoying the new Disney tv toon Hailey's On It a fair amount. It's not one of their best, but it's fun. And it's got Manny Jacinto playing another lovable doofus, which is definitely a hoot. Basically a teenage, family-friendly version of his character from The Good Place.

    The one thing really not working in its favor is the art style feels really bland/generic to me. One of the mom characters in the show looks like she was generated from those bitmoji avatars that were popular for a while.

    The art really stands out as ho-hum after seeing the amazing style of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur

    I get annoyed by how often I see shows being out right on the front of Netflix that they canceled.

    I swear I see Santa Clarita Diet more than anything and those fuckers couldn’t give it another season…

    It's funny as hell how the old Evangelion DVDs had ads for a bunch of anime....and Farscape. Just the one random live action thing.

    This is my job for tonight.

    I thought I started last night but then I realized I need to switch the OS to linux and put the plex server stuff on there, not just like a regular plex account

    The daytime talk show is coming back Oct. 16, but the show's three WGA writers — Chelsea White, Cristina Kinon and Liz Koe — have turned down an offer to return with it.

    Finished season 1 of Foundation today.

    It's a very pretty show. Lee Pace is a lot of fun to watch. I have no fucking idea what's going on and I'm extremely tired of the narrator saying things that sound profound and mean absolutely fuck all. "Used correctly the past can change the present" What are you on about?? The past always changes the present, that's how linear time works!

    I don't think I'll bother with season 2.

    I am currently watching The Greatest Love

    Gu Ae-jung, former member of k-pop girl group The Treasure Girls which disbanded years ago under cloudy circumstances, is now an F-list celebrity doing gigs at night clubs and making the rounds on variety and panel shows. She has gotten a reputation as a very unlikable person and is largely cast in shows to be snickered and tsked at. She becomes entangled with famous, but stagnating (at least in his opinion), actor Dokko-jin. He has a robot heart and its bpm shoots up whenever he hears a particular Treasure Girls song, which Gu Ae-jung has as her ringtone on her 2011 LG smartphone.

    I used my incredibly impressive Python skills to make a bingo card generator (SPOILERS FOR THE GREATEST LOVE UP TO EPISODE 5):

    This is also the fourth series that I've seen with Yoo In-na in it, and it is the fourth time I've seen her play a celebrity of some sort.

    I was an extra on True Blood! You can see me in a background blob of photographers in some nighttime episode for about 1/3 of a second

    It was an overnight shoot in the wilds of Calabasas and got way colder than it should have, it sucked!

    $20 a month for a single streaming service is insane.

    Pretty soon it’s going to be cheaper to just have cable again.

    The problem is that only like... 20% of the stuff I actually want to watch is even on cable. So there's not even any going back.

    Increasing the price right after locking out most/all account sharing certainly is an interesting move.

    I would say it smells of desperation but I've been so wrong about the garbage decisions all of these app companies have made over the last ten years I clearly don't know what I'm talking about.

    Nah it's the opposite. They'll keep raising prices until they lose money instead of gain. Why wouldn't they?
