    Re: TV, or not TV, that is the question

    The most recent OJ episode (Fuhrman invoking the 5th) was amazing.

    I'm about ready to give up on Sleepy Hollow. It's become too much "the Scoobies' weekly mystery," and the new sidekick Wendigo dude is loathsome. Not enough of Ichabod, either.

    Like Gotham, it's going to be sad to let it go, but the idiocy::cool ratio has just gotten too high.

    Lucifer has the potential to fall into this trap, too, but so far they're somehow staying out of the black hole of cliches. I would really, really be pis-sed if it failed too, but given how lightweight the chick detective is it's a distinct possibility.

    As you may know, I only watch less than a handful of shows. Currently, I watch 2 (Saul/Americans) so I just buy the season pass from Amazon. I waited for Netflix for the first season of Saul, and I just can't do that again.

    The Americans:

    Ok, ANOTHER situation that is seemingly impossible to get out of? Nitpick of the show, but at some point, someone's really gotta pay. My crazy theory hidden below, and it's a doozy, and would skyrocket the intensity of the show:

    Centre finds out Elizabeth's and Philip's predicament, and somehow arranges Paige to have a talk with Pastor Tim and Alice. All three are terminated in one fell swoop. While it would be a shame, as I am really enjoying Paige's evolution into the plot, that would a MASSIVE gut-wrencher and a true HOLY SH* moment.

    The question is were the Kardashian children involved?

    The main guy, Captain Whatshisname...his hair deserves an Emmy nomination for all the heavy lifting it is doing. Otherwise, meh. If you're of a certain age and really care about the music of that era, there's plenty of references to keep you entertained.

    Oh, no. Roger is always an adult. He's weak, but he's a male -- the first on an American television series in about 25 years.

    I don't mean that kind of afraid. I mean the "kids today have no morals!!!" kind of afraid that parents have felt about their children's music ever since Homo habilis teens discovered the back beat and immediately used it to dry hump down by the firepit ("teens" being like 8-year olds since their parents were probably gray at 17).

    "If your parents don't hate your music you are not doing it right." -- Iggy Pop (maybe)

    So's Ruth Etting and Annette Hanshaw. Doesn't mean people will find it unless they hear it.

    Or for that matter...

    Don isn't the adult in Mad Men.
