    Of all the characters on the show Shiv disgusts me the most and strikes me as the most real. That is the sort of hateful, un-self-aware monster which that class creates. The others are comic stereotypes but she's real. Maybe that means the actress is the best of the bunch.

    But when a show hauls in a ton of nominations it isn't the acting, it's the writing. Armstrong is the genius in that show; the rest are riding coat tails.
    Yep I had it wrong

And like I said I could watch Levy and Elliott all day just whittle sticks -- they are both amazing at what they do. Catherine O'Hara was lame with SCTV and still is but it's very cool to see at least a small part of the Greatest Comedy Troupe Evar !!!111! reassembled. Is Andrea Martin still alive? How about Dave Thomas? (Fun fact, Dave Thomas' dad was the head of the Philosophy department at McMaster). There's no way they're getting Joe Flaherty from those high-paying gigs.
        I didn't think the pilot was bad, but it did feel like it was missing a little bit of something, but now that we're 6 or so episodes in it gets rolling more. Just give it some time for the characters and interactions to get more fleshed out. In the meantime, enjoy a glass of fruit wine!

If you want to have an insightful show about hard-hitting societal issues, your first move should not be to cast anyone from Kangaroo Jack.
            Yeah if you dont like AA then it can be hard to watch. His freakouts make me laugh. The episode where he cant swim but gets angry cause everyone assumes he cant swim cause he is Black...which he admits is actually true and even I think chronicles why historically Black People cant swim is still a favorite of my gfs. But yeah if you dont like him you wont like the show until they flesh out the other characters like his Mom or the older daughter. (who now has her own show)

              Agree. He has fantastic emotional range and he is terrific on that knife edge where you hate him but are also weirdly rooting for him, at least to destroy the others but also to somehow be redeemed.

              I don't want Kendal to be happy, but I do want him to be at peace. After he suffers a lot more.

              • I don't mind the occasional time-waster of a show here and there (for instance the first few seasons of Wipeout back in the day) so when I stumbled upon Holey Moley I thought, "Ok, why not?". Ehhhh. Normally I would blame Covid for something this insidious to be getting prime time airplay but it's already season 2? I like that Rob Riggle guy enough but I gave it 20 minutes and turned it off. Do not want.

                  • I had never watched S1 of The League before and thankfully so far it holds up. “Respect the sidebar” is a great line, the ball-hair joint and the Taco birthday song are great reminders why this show rocked.

                    I finally started The Devil Next Door have watched 2 episodes so far. Beyond the actual trial itself (guilty or innocent) the witness testimony has been extremely moving. It’s not necessarily new in that the atrocities have been well known, but hearing them from people so closely removed from the camps is hard to watch but necessary. 75 years on and sometimes it feels like we’ve learned nothing.

                      The league first three seasons are great
