a threE game
Wisdom of the Crowd is the only one that intrigues me as a concept. Plus, I really liked Jeremy Piven in Mr. Selfridge on ITV.
Me, Myself, and I actually sounds interesting to me. Not the same cookie-cutter premise. I will check it out.
It may be my deep love for the two of them but Jenna Fisher and Maura Tierney could play sisters very convincingly.
You know, maybe it’s just that my bar is set so low for network TV quality, but with the exceptions of the reboots, prequels and the cop and medical shows, I at least appreciated that people were trying to bring some original ideas to the table. It feels like all that get produced on the major networks is a…
I am a big fan of nice shoulders on men and women, and Clover, your shoulders are stunning in that dress. You absolutely should wear it a lot, even if the name is confusing and it totally looks like a maxi dress.
OK. Listen. I know everyone (except Yetta and Tallblonde) is going to pop in here talking about how you’re not falling in love with Harry. You’re going to list all sorts of reasons. On one hand, count yourself lucky not to have become ensorcelled by this alien in his inescapable web of fascination and dimples.…
No mention that this is partially inspired by the interrogation scene from the awful The Day The Earth Stood Still remake with Keanu Reeves?
Another fun fact: the original version of the song was co-written by John Phillips and Scott Mackenzie, while Phillips was allegedly engaged in a 10-year incestuous relationship with his daughter, also named Mackenzie.
I sang “Kokomo” in the shower this morning, and I think I’ll continue to do so every day for the rest of my damn life.
This post is a true afternoon delight (...cocktails and moonlit nights).
My wife and I watched Get Out in Dubai where we live, about two weeks ago. It’s a modern masterpiece in my opinion. What an enlightening and odd experience viewing the movie with hundreds of other non American expats. Peele’ s movie is so quintisentially American in its depictions of its lead characters experiences…
Excellent interview, Clover, and now I know to look forward to Stem.
I’m a few years younger than you but I watched it in high school and I remember feeling deeply uncomfortable that Holden continued to pursue Alyssa after she had made her sexuality clear to him. To me that seemed deeply disrespectful of her as a person, I guess that was part of the point of the film but the idea…
To me, the biggest symptom of the film’s problems was the scene where Alyssa said she’d never been with a guy. It felt so much like a) authorial fiat, a scene where someone acts out of character solely because the film wouldn’t have a third act if she said, “Yeah, I fucked around a little in high school”, and b)…
Something else that’s present in “Chasing Amy” (albeit as a subplot with Hooper) is the idea of marginalized identities within marginalized communities. How do you reconcile all pieces of yourself when you know that to be public with that is to lose the support of one of the communities you identify with?
LESBIANS, HOW DO THEY WORK
I guess I stopped watching at the end of the last season because I decided there was enough violence and dread and gore in the real world (especially politics) that I no longer feel the need to watch it on tv. When everything was great under Obama, watching Walking Dead made sense but now . . . no thanks. I’ll go…
I guess I’m in the minority, because I have actually enjoyed this season more than any other since season 3. I still don’t think that it’s *great* - I don’t know that it will ever be great again - but I definitely think it’s better than seasons 5 and 6 (UGH).
