Actually, a lot of SNL players come from improv, which depends on the chemistry and rapport between at least two people in a live environment. So these sketches they’re doing remotely is doubly impressive.
I thought this second go-round was miles away better than the first, but even with the first “SNL at Home” I’d never complain. These people are being creative and going the extra mile to deliver content in extremely challenging circumstances. They’re used to the energy and current of a live broadcast and audience, and… Read more
I feel like I’m supposed to be annoyed that she’s still milking this inane story but honestly, I can’t be. She’s delightful.
Because I totally forgot about it! Not sure which one this was but I loved both of the songs that played during Helen’s escape and the kids’.
I didn’t have a problem with the finale as a whole because I’m a bleeding-heart sap who cries at tampon commercials, but I will dock it points for the tidy Noah/Helen resolution. What makes that conversation so improbable is that it’s an abstract summary of their entire relationship, which is something people in a… Read more
Margaret reminded me of two awful old sisters in my extended family who are now, I think, 98 and 96 years old with no signs of slowing down. Outside of their aversion to joy, constant ailments (of which they complain INCESSANTLY), and general detritus that makes up their heart/brain. They are terrible, awful human… Read more
I certainly won’t begrudge anyone hating this finale for being too saccharine or implausible*, but I thought it was worth it for the Solloway kids alone. The flash mob and wedding escape scenes had me holding back happy tears and the most embarrassing goofy grin. And “Whole of the Moon” is a perfect fucking song. Read more
1. I agree with you about the best method to consume entire seasons or series. Like you, I binged the majority of this season yesterday during Shotime’s marathon (which I just happened to turn on and stick around for) then was sucked in enough to tune in to the finale. At first I tried the season premiere, hated the… Read more
Yes please. Can we also just stop dancing around the fact that he clearly has dementia? Thx
No, Joey only checks Splinter on Thursdays - the Third Day of the week.
The best you got is probably exactly right. At least, it’s 100% in line with my read of this confounding goblin. He sees Twitter as his happy, forgiving stream of conscience, and it has the added super benefit of being broadcast to the entire world. But when you plant him in a ~fancy~ Oval Office with big serious… Read more
I’m right there with you. I love Bojack merely for the therapy by proxy he seems to offer just by being a terrible, terrible person. This was the speech Todd (of all people!) gave that made me realize I was actually learning things about human behavior from a cartoon:
This is a show whose main character I am rooting for - I want him to make it out and fully realize happiness! - but also one that I would be supremely disappointed in if the main character “succeeded.” Darkly, the only fitting end, the only good end, I see is Bojack killing himself or drinking himself to death. And…
From Season 3 on I watched the whole thing in real time like appointment television. Even by the series finale I was so grateful and so thrilled to have that show in my life. So I’m with you in totally hating GOT fans who decry the WHOLE FUCKING SHOWWWWW just because D&D completely fucked its denouement. Like, get a… Read more
Yes, but don’t even try it with OH LAWD HE COMIN Cat.
