I love, Love On The Spectrum, and I would like to see more. I think it is less exploitative than most “romance” reality shows, which to be honest, I do not watch. I am on the spectrum, as are quite a few people in my family, so I identified with the cast, their issues, and took some hope from the show for finding love Read more

"Love On The Spectrum" looks like it could be sweet and wholesome, incredibly exploitative or an odd mixture of both. I'd bet on the last one.

I started a Ranma rewatch the summer before last. I used to try to program my own TV network in the summer, picking one show each night either from my box sets or streaming. This year I haven’t ever gotten that organized, just binging whatever catches my fancy. But I think I should go back and finish Ranma.

I love Ranma, and pretty much anything from Takahashi.

God I love Hannibal. It’s a bummer that so many people are probably going to watch hannibal on a laptop with shitty sound when the sound design and score are almost another character on the show. The uncompressed audio on the blurays is a real treat if ya have decent 5.1 surround sound setup at home

I started watching Hannibal on Netflix and I love the visuals. They are stunning, trippy, and absolutely fantastic.  I am slowly enjoying the first season.  Some of the visuals remind me of season 1 of American Gods.

Damn gurl, you’re like me. I had to watch it over two days as well, it parts, taking in a deep breath before taking in the last half in one sitting. I had to hold back my tears during the final footage as well. Being a Black woman in STEM I can tell you how that bitch’s influence on White men was cause to hold people Read more

The fact that it’s the one episode named after a man signals exactly that. Read more

Doesn’t sound like she watched the show. Her take on Schlafley tracks well with how Steinham’s presented on the show: she doesn’t think anyone should pay attention to Schlafley but I think its a pretty bold claim that she didn’t have any impact (and even if she didn’t, I don’t think it really hurts the show - Read more

Wow, that final scene. Blanchett really deserves an Emmy for this role. She gives Delphine Seyrig a run for her money in infusing idle housework with so many emotions. Read more

My sympathy for this woman (and anyone who fights against their own interest) is pretty much nil.  She got what she wanted and we’ve all lost.

I watched about 30 min of this episode this morning and turned it off. I couldn’t start the day being so angry. Read more

You’re doing a great job with these recaps. This is an incredible show. ! Not that it really matters, but I’d like to see it cleanup come award season. It feels like the proper counter//companion piece to mad men.

Yes! It did happen but it was semi-fictionalized for the show. That guy was a prolific pie thrower. It's incredible the kind of shit people used to get away with. Read more

Fascinating stuff - thanks for sharing your personal insight into the events, as it helps give me (a Brit) extra context and understanding of politics I don’t really understand. Read more

This episode is making me like the idea of Margo Martindale and Rose Byrne doing a project together.
