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

    Did I really just skim through three pages of pure political bloviating about a character purposefully designed to be the ultimate a-hole? Fer chrissakes, people.

        No, skimmed most of it. The first couple posts I read, then knew where that train was headed. After that, I read FU could've been and then skipped to the next post... and then the next and so on and so forth.

                    I loved both seasons as well. Amazon obviously gives them a good budget cause it is a high quality show.

                      The OJ miniseries was very strong, beginning to end. Ito's reax to the 4 hour deliberation was exactly what I assumed the real reaction was.

                      In Vinyl, the playing out of the scene where Richie has to bring the mob in was brilliant.

                      Bo Dietl's portrayal of Joe Corso makes for tense times in the household. Dr. Mrs. despises him. She has had first hand experience with him at DIA/NIU and also back in her TSA days. She regards him as a sort of dumb version of Sarah Palin. I always taunt her that when Drumpf is president Dietl will be Secretary of Homeland Security.

                          Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: It's a Netflix half-hour (give or take) comedy series around a woman who's freed from an underground bunker where she and three other women were held as, more or less, prisoners of a cult leader who'd abducted them. The humor is largely goofy, though there are some poignant moments in it. I'm only through three or four episodes so far, but I'm enjoying it. Carol Kane sort of steals her fair share of scenes. Jane Krakowski is acceptable as a main supporting character, but I've never much cared for her; admittedly, she has a few good moments in the show.

                                I don't know when season 2 is coming, other than it'll be this year. I do know that Netflix ordered seasons 2 and 3 based upon how well season 1 was received.
