    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).

        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'm sad I only have one more week to say this, but People vs. OJ still blows me away. A courtroom scene from a trial 20 years ago that I have at least have some recollection of, and obviously know the final verdict of had me on the edge of my seat last night because it was so tense.

            I understand Martin Sheen is doing a "documentary" based upon the book that came out a couple of years ago claiming OJ's kid killed them. Won't be quite the same, but at least some way to get an OJ fix.
            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                  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.

                    I'm about to start watching season 3 of The Americans, watching only when the episodes hit the free streaming on Amazon Prime. I really wish they put the show onto Hulu.

                      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 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.

                            Oh, yeah, it went stinker city a while back. Which really s-cked because I loved it.

                            Gotham would have survived if they killed Bruce (an alt history we can all believe in) and did not allow Jim to have a love interest.

                                IIRC, end of season 2. If you're telling me Bruce is dead and Jim is single I'll start up again. I deeply miss Cobblepot.

                                Edit: S2, Ep 8 was my breaking point, but it had been building a while.
