I’m not sure how I’ll feel about Cruel Summer in the end, but I know that I can’t stop watching it now. Especially because there’s nothing better on.
In both timelines, he has intense tunnel vision focused only on “the greater good” which, as I’ve written about previously, is the WORST ethical code anyone can have. While I can appreciate that it’s tough to be a super hero, I don’t have sympathy for a man who refuses to bend by claiming that he can’t buckle under the immense strain of his leadership. If the role is that heavy, it should be shared.
Gilmore Guys has what some may refer to as “a rough start”. It’s two dudes, Kevin and Demi, and Kevin was a long time fan of the show with Demi being a pair of fresh eyes. They probably spend 60% of their recorded time talking about things that aren’t related to Gilmore Girls, but they’re 100% entertaining.
Tina Fey’s sitcom humor is expositional, with main characters lobbing jokes like a wiffleball – impossible to miss unless you’re four years old.
Something occurred to me last weekend when I was watching Miley Cyrus on SNL. I was reminiscing about the time that she was the musical guest for SNL at home and completely crushed it. I can’t tell you one Miley song outside of “wrecking ball” but I may have been […]
Let’s be real here – SNL thrives under a republican presidency. As the lower classes writhe in uncertainty and fear, as the funds that should be used to take care of our country get funneled to beef up the military so that we can dominate other countries, as the Earth cries and fills up with harmful emissions and single use plastics – at least SNL thrives. Under Bush and Trump, SNL was the bright spot in the darkness. They did not thrive under Obama, and they’re falling a little flat now with Biden in office and Trump off twitter. So, to goose their ratings, they create a sensation.
Just like reading an old book brings back old memories, when I watch HIMYM I’m able to live in that bubble of time again.
When lockdown first started, I made a pact with a friend to do yoga and Duolingo every day. She kept up with the yoga, and I’m currently pushing 400 days on my Duolingo streak. Last summer I watched Narcos: Mexico to brush up on my conversational Spanish (that was a mistake). This year, I’ve been binging Gentefied on Netflix.
What makes a person – their memories? Their DNA? How do we qualify a life? Answers elude the Klingons as the characters grapple with their own beliefs in a modern, scientifically advanced world.
I think Shonda made Grey’s for a lot of people. She made it for people of color, pushing the boundaries of representations (at the time it was created). But I think that she also made it for people like me. For the basic white women who love drama, she gave that to us with a side of social education, one that we desperately need.
