II genuinely do not understand the viewpoints of people who say they do not like this show. It’s heartwarming, it’s funny, there is good action, it dovetails nicely with a property we’ve all been fans of for years...what’s the gripe?

I watched the first episode today at my desk (let it never be said government employees don’t work hard!), and it was pretty damn good. Werner Herzog is fucking great, Pascal is great as the titular character, and a fucking *****SPOILER***** showing up at the very end was really good shit. Read more
