Again fuck off and fuck you with that noise. You are a poster child for why the republicans got civics taken out of schools. You dumbfucks didn’t vote in 2014 in the midterms, you didn’t vote in 2016, you didn’t even vote for your own guy, Bernie this year, as far as the low voter turnouts he had, as you’d rather sit… Read more
While those commenting may not feel ready to learn about colorism, based on the general tone of these responses, it’s about goddamn time. She wore a prosthetic nose to play a darker-skinned Black woman. The world isn’t so didactic that being Black is justification enough to play any Black person, and the time it took… Read more
Yeah, I read through his Wikipedia page and it’s insane. The personal section alone is easily a movie, maybe a documentary series. I hope someone manages to do his life story justice.
I’ve never quite understood the Chuck Berry complaint. Yes, Marty goes back in time and plays a Chuck Berry song that Chuck Berry adopts... but Marty learned the song from Chuck Berry in the first place did he not? I never got the impression that implication was that Marty McFly wrote Johnny B. Goode in 1985 from… Read more
I was confused why the reviewer seemed to be ignoring or just forgetting the concept of dramatic irony in this review? Plenty of incredible TV and cinema has been made where we know more than the characters do, down to the outcome of people’s lives. Hell, Better Call Saul is the best show on TV and that hinges on… Read more
Really well-articulated. I think that’s what bothered me most about Greg in this episode, not what he actually did or did not do as a parent, but the obliviousness and doubling-down. It never seems to occur to him that breaking into his estranged secret grandparents’ home and learning all about dad’s hidden childhood… Read more
There’s more than one way to be a bad parent. And one of them’s reacting against a bad rearing so comprehensively that you merely become the opposite kind of bad parent. And it’s extremely likely that Steven’s meeting his grandparents would’ve gone poorly ... but it was his prerogative to get the chance to meet them… Read more
Samesies. Really, I feel like there’s point where snark becomes unnecessary punching down and this maybe comes close to that line. I haven’t read these, but my gut is telling me that they’re well-intentioned attempts to explain past horrors to children, as well as maybe instilling a lesson about surviving such… Read more
Creating their own fictional version of it, to me at least, seems less offensive than bringing 100% real world tragedy to their over the top silly grindhouse show. “Hunters” doesn’t pretend to be historically accurate and takes huge liberties with many events (not to spoil anything) so inventing their own… Read more
I’m here to confirm that some universities do in fact do fire alarms at incredibly annoying hours. The latest one I experienced at college was around 12:30AM. Needless to say, everyone was upset and wanted to ignore the alarm. But the particular alarm our school was impossible to block out due to its piercing nature.… Read more
I think Beth didn’t react to Randall’s conclusion that an intruder was in their room because she knows it’s more likely the items are out of place than a petty cash robber taking sophisticated turquoise earrings and cuff links. This was her being calm to make him calm, as how everyone seems to know how to handle… Read more
What an arresting depiction of anxiety. I’m satisfied to see This Is Us really put a big focus on the topic. That’s why the trilogy format serves this show brilliantly- it lets them paint such intimate portraits, even moreso than usual.
Also- speaking from experience, college dorm fire drills in the middle of the night… Read more
I very much suspect this was two separate scripts that got slammed together when neither was able to be padded out to full episode length. The way the Irish completely disappear when the clones show up until the very end feels very awkward, and the Worf barely-a-subplot just adds to the vibe. Read more
You convinced me that this episode is not “good”. But that doesn’t mean it wont be amazingly entertaining... You convinced me to dig this episode out to rewatch it :D
