Seeing as how many of the contestants in The Biggest Loser, which used to give Michaels a paycheck for screeching even worse vitriol than this in their faces, wound up with dehydration, kidney damage, heat stroke, and a myriad of other maladies, to say nothing of the emotional damage done to many of them, maybe no one… Read more
I just finished the 2nd season. I think Waller-Bridge left as showrunner after the first season, though.
I streamed a bunch of stuff I had been meaning to watch: Russian Doll, both seasons of Fleabag and Derry Girls, the last season of Preacher. Oh, and I also watched Don’t Fuck with Cats, I will watch pretty much whatever true crime content that Netflix puts out. Liked all of it, but the second season of Fleabag was… Read more
You know he only shoehorned in that Hot Take™ to trick everyone into reading and reporting on his sex life.
I see Phoebe Waller-Bridge cleaned up again. I just finished the second season of Fleabag on Friday and I was legit depressed for the next couple of days. I can’t remember the last time a series continued to affect my emotions even after I finished watching it. I’m pretty sure whatever Andrew Scott goes on to do, he… Read more
Well, the good news is that no one will be disappointed (except maybe whoever invested money in this mess), because absolutely no one was asking for this movie.
Guys, my brother arrived from Chicago on Saturday and he’s not leaving until a week into the new year and I am already ready to smother him with the air mattress that is taking up half our living room. Three god damn weeks isn’t a visit, it’s homesteading. He said it was the cheapest airfares he could find, but I’m… Read more

Last night’s episode was the point where I just sighed and started counting down the days to Avenue 5, because this show is not doing it for me.
I’m currently listening to Catch and Kill on audio and have Harvey Weinstein on the brain (gross, but better than having him on any physical part of my body). Apparently the toxic relationship he and Paltrow had—she’s never said he assaulted her, but that he was very controlling and bullying—is the main reason she… Read more
That was the Lost Generation. Surprised they had time to invent sliced bread between fighting WWI, writing novels, and fending off F. Scott Fitzgerald’s drunken advances.
I set myself a goal of reading 100 books this year, and I met it in October; granted, some of them were short books, and there were a couple of kid’s lit re-reads (anyone else remember Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth?). Because I was keeping track, and because there was a page weirdly… Read more
