  1. I've probably talked about it before, but I just love The OA. There is nothing like it. Alice Krige and the late Scott Wilson give especially heart-rending performances in S1 but the main cast is also phenomenal, especially Phyllis Smith and Patrick Gibson.

      I agree Vee. Have you seen S2? I think it's even better than S1. It's such a mind [!@#$%^&*].

  2. I can see an argument for impeaching Trump in this instance, which is something I never thought I'd say given the state of the Senate. I think grinding him down with the slow process of investigations is the best continued move - we'll be doing that anyway. Could impeachment be at the end of it? Maybe. Could it work well in this instance politically? Maybe. But honestly, that is all it is going to potentially do. And it has just as much potential to backfire. Unless we have a slam dunk in the Senate, impeachment proceedings will stall eventually. It may energize the base, but the media and the public have been trained to see impeachment as strictly a political tool as opposed to a necessary tool for the public trust, which will take many years to redefine. The media will hound Democrats about daring to impeach without the votes and both sides-it to death. And that will resonate for a lot of dumb people. Yes, I think he should be impeached. I could even get behind it happening now in this limited form. But unless everything is played perfectly in the public eye - which it won't be - it stands a very, very good choice of blowing back on us and hurting us next year with dumb people in the middle. And the media will never support Democrats on impeachment. They just won't. So it's an uphill battle at best. I'd rather just keep grinding him down, which we are doing. This report would never have been released if not for the wins we have now.
  3. I like Warren a lot but IMO she fatally wounded herself as a candidate by playing Trump's game and releasing stupid genealogy results on demand for him, which only embarrassed her further. He will play her with that forever. He turned her into Jeb/Cruz. I think it's too early to declare 2020 to be 2016 Part 2. I will say I'm sure glad it's not 2020 right now.
  4. Wondering if this may bode well for ABC and ODAAT (Justina Machado is taking part):
  5. Nice to see Justina Machado getting a big network showcase with the Norman Lear special while ODAAT is in limbo.

  6. If CBS AA wanted it, there's a good shot. I still don't believe Netflix won't buckle on that since the pressure is now publicly on them.
  7. I'm not going to post everything I see rn, it's too much and I'm exhausted. Even redacted, the report is quite damning. And it destroys Trump's election narrative. It also pointedly does not exonerate him and makes that very clear.
  8. I have no real objection to Buttgieg. I don't think he's ready and he's not my choice, but I think he's harmless. I do think he's getting undue attention by the press simply because he's white and male and that's their usual stupid [!@#$%^&*], but I can't begrudge a gay candidate who I think means well. My choice is still Harris and many others before him, though. Meanwhile:
  9. Things are not going well for Barr this morning. The cable news outlets are tearing him up.

    Isaac Hempstead Wright is a good sport on Kimmel:
  11. You can always msg me at the other place!
  12. Harry Treadaway is extremely talented. He also got full-on naked from every angle in season after season of Fortitude, an Arctic thriller with a who's who of British and American stars (including Dennis Quaid, Stanley Tucci, and GOT's Michelle Fairley and Richard Dormer). Fortitude was only good for one season before going totally off the rails fast, but I'll always be grateful to Harry Treadaway for showing the goods for literally no reason in episode after episode. Uh, also I love Alison Pill. This is an exceptional cast so far. With Michael Chabon involved and Discovery having vastly improved, I'm really excited to see Trek finally return to the post-TNG/DS9/Voyager 'future' of its timeline.

    HBO: Game of Thrones

    They appear to be pulling the trigger on which was hinted at years ago. Euron played himself with Cersei.
  14. Josh Griffith was good on OLTL in the 1990s. But he's been mostly burnt out for decades since. He has germs of good ideas but they are very rarely executed well.

    HBO: Game of Thrones

    I'm still watching. I'll spoiler tag major stuff. Do love the opening with the little boy climbing up to see the procession - a direct callback to the pilot and Bran watching the Baratheons arrive from the parapet. Arya defending Sansa is refreshing. "She's the smartest person I've ever met." Jon's reunions with Bran and Arya, finally, got me. Love the new opening sequence.

    HBO: Game of Thrones

    There's apparently a lot of callbacks to the pilot tonight or this final season, so I'll be rewatching it shortly. Meanwhile, cast reminiscences: More YT won't let me embed: Maisie Williams Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Emilia Clarke
  17. Debra Wilson from MadTV starring in a Star Wars game with Cameron Monaghan is... not news I expected today

      She's at the end and is playing a Jedi Knight!

      Great to see her still working. She never did get her chance. 

  18. Is it me or does literally no part of the interface work now?

  19. Thank God Wendy Williams filed for divorce before ending up in the ground.

      Absolutely. I wonder if part of her time off was, among other things, getting a plan together for herself to get out. Much of what Wendy did the last few months was untangle herself from her husband's control little by little, until she had the strength to hire security guards, have them storm her studio, and have a process server serve her divorce suit in front of all their employees. 

  20. She's so talented but she's wasted on the character. Still, if anyone can make Nina work...
  21. Harris is also my first choice.
