Dear White People... based on all of the comments on Reddit, I assumed it was some dumb, preachy show, but a friend kept telling me to give it a shot and once I did, I loved it. I can see why both seasons have 100% on RT, it's really great. Don't always trust Reddit's collective opinion.

I watched the first 15 minutes of American Vandal and figured it was just some silly, long form dick joke and then after a few people started saying it was better and much more than that I gave it another shot and I am glad I did. One of the best seasons of TV in the past couple of years.

I did the exact same thing and never went back to it. I'm going to give it a second shot now after reading your comment.

I agree with you completely. I think the main issue was the fact that they lost David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro as showrunners/producers. The quality drop was very significant. Last season was a great lawyer/courtroom drama with a lot of tension and surprises. This season felt all over the place, with a very predictable, boring storyline, hardly any courtroom scenes, and a stupid love interest/relationship that was so unbelievable, it felt like the writers hadn't even watched season 1. It's a waste of Billy Bob Thornton.

“Dark and disturbing is my bread and butter,” Coon told EW of her character. “Season 1 sold it for me. I loved the idea of a whydunit instead of a whodunit,” she added. “It’s just good old-fashioned fun.”

She's spot-on here. This is what really hooked me into the series. It was a nice relief from the typical detective show where you see the crime and have to determine who the killer is, which many times can be figured out fairly early, and depending on the size of the cast, can be very limited. A series that shows you the killer from the start, but gives very little to no information about the reasoning, leaves your options wide open.

Guy clearly knows how to be a people person. This is what Graham Norton once said when Cruise appeared on his show.

Whatever you may think of him, the effect he has on a studio audience is electric. It’s weird because it’s not just that he’s famous. Lots of people are famous. But Tom is one of the very few who doesn’t only just shine his light on his host. Everyone who met him backstage felt exactly the same as he shook hands and remembered each name, no matter their job description. Humble and presidential at the same time, it may be an act but, if so, it’s the best I’ve ever seen.

I've seen him on GN, and he's right, he's very captivating. He tells great stories about being on set and filming different scenes and how he does the crazy stunts for MI... He's very mesmerizing.

Is nobody going to mention the bear scene from Annihilation? Jesus, that scream is going to haunt me for a while.

Yeah, I was just gonna say that he obviously didn't read the other thread about this. That was full of people who had already made their mind up that he was a nasty piece of shit who's guilty and deserves a bit of "trial by social media".

Which was the exact opposite response here from people about Louis CK, even after he admitted that he did what he was accused of.

To be fair, Louis CK is much more talented.

What does that have anything to do with it at all?

I know many people here didn't watch Longmire, but it was revived on Netflix after being cancelled on A&E, and the quality of the episodes increased greatly, and the show lasted for 3 more seasons. I remember reading an article where the showrunners were praising Netflix for letting them do whatever they wanted, and not putting any limitations on them in terms of content, language, and especially episode length. The production quality and cinematography also was drastically much better, and it was given a truly proper ending. I sincerely hope that the showrunners of Lucifer take the same path and let their creativity run wild and do whatever Fox wouldn't allow them to do.

I loved Lucifer season and two. I've yet to watch 3 but I will dive into it this summer. I loved the show even if it didn't match the comic source material. I'm really happy to see us get a season four and even more excited to see it more mature and able to reach new levels.

Gato1980 39 points

Season 3 is a little rough at times, but definitely worth the watch for the final two episodes of the season... two of the best episodes of the entire series.

I’m surprised he even gets roles these days. The dude has gone so downhill, and he is a total weirdo.

Ugh I've seen those Scarlett Johansson and Idina Menzel clips so times, and I still cringe... stop trying to make people think you're straight.

As someone that doesn't follow celebrity gossip, why do people think Travolta is gay?

Gato1980 116 points

He's been accused by multiple male masseurs of sexual assault. His former male pilot also said they had been in a sexual relationship.

Hilllary Clinton can laugh at herself.

Trump is thin skinned and completely humourless. He did do a Comedy Central Roast where he got roasted but it was essentially a bragging session.

Roasters were banned from telling jokes about whether he was a billionaire (until he releases his tax returns, I'm going to assume he's just a multi-millionaire).

I wouldn't even go that far... didn't he have to pay off Stormy's $130K hush money in like 6 payments?

She's a great write and her monologue on weekend update is on point most of the time, but she's not a great performer and I don't think she's improving

Gato1980 4 points

I have to agree with you... I honestly think she's just one of those comedians/actors who doesn't do well in skits reading off of cue cards. I've seen her in tons of movies where she's absolutely hilarious, but on SNL, it's obvious that she struggles.

You mustn’t have seen Hotel, then.

Hotel was awful... and Lady Gaga was the regurgitated cherry on top of the vomit sundae.

I know people tend to hate on the more recent seasons, but the first season, the Murder House, is still one of my all time favorite first seasons of any TV show. I thought it was brilliant.

I loved the first season a lot, but almost every episode ended on a big cliffhanger, which made it really feel like it was made for a streaming service and to be binge-watched. I might wait until all of this season's episodes are out to watch them together if they're going to be formatting it the same way.

Q: Do I need to watch season 1 to understand this upcoming season? Kinda cbf but I mess with Carrie Coon heavy.

Gato1980 3 points

From the trailer, it doesn't look like season 2 connects with the first season's events at all. The only character returning is the detective, played by Bill Pullman. He's the detective who worked on the case in the first season. If you do get a chance, though, I would recommend watching it just because it is really good, and Jessica Biel gives a tremendous performance.

As shitty as some of his stuff has been in the past, I'll always give him a pass because he gave us Fringe.

EmperorKuzma 1 point

How much better does Fringe get after season 1? I remember dropping it sorta early, most;y because I can't stand the actor from Dawson's creek. But people with similar taste in TV keep reiterating they all love Fringe so I need to make some time for a binge.

Gato1980 2 points

It's great... the last season is a big departure from the previous seasons, but is still great... It also has one of my favorite series finales of all time. Everything gets tied up perfectly.
