i watched this after reading your description and i felt the same way you did. those guys were so great! and with her silly baby voice, asking her unbelievably dumb baby questions, she made the entire movement look so good.
no thanks to that weird blonde be-wigged person with the mustache and the exposed breasts, being a goofball in the beginning. YOU ARE NOT HELPING.
p.s. hey, guy in the top right corner at 9:40. HOW YOU DOIN’?? call me.
I need you guys to tell me if at some point in this he takes off more of his clothes, or puts on tighter pants, so I can skip to there.
Also, so many of the locations where she shot were bizarrely empty. Many questions can be asked about LA but “where are all the people?” is not one of them. It’s like watching an episode of Scooby Doo, where the only people they encounter are people who are pivotal to the solving on the crime.
I’m actually really enjoying the show. Well, as much as something so grim and unfunny can be really enjoyed.
I wonder if her police work getting super shoddy is a choice the show is making on purpose. I will have to rewatch early episodes to test my idea, but it seemed like she was pretty solid in the beginning. She had good instincts, and was really good with witnesses and stuff. It almost seems like, as the rest of her life falls apart, her desperation to solve the crime is making her sloppy. (And/or vice versa, her desperation to solve the crime leads to the deterioration of her life, which makes her MORE desperate, which makes her sloppy.) It’s like we start watching on the upper end of what appears to be a steep, fast downward slide into her becoming Bad Lieutenant: Seattle. I sort of like it. We’re seeing how loosely she’s held together, and how little it takes for her to let her entire world collapse. Like the situation with her asshole son emailing the crime scene photos was a perfect synergy of her letting everything completely slide.
But also, lady has a serious sourpuss and she wears the same brown sweater every day, too. Rat Face hasn’t cornered the market on wearing the same shit every day. The must smell awful. They’re always getting soaked in the rain, then drying off, then getting soaked again. Barf.
While the story line about Rosie’s parents is hard to watch, because of how terrible that situation must be for them, I don’t mind it. I feel like it’s being handled pretty well. Unless any of us have actually had one of our kids die and can attest to it ringing false, I’m gonna give them the benefit of the doubt about how much something like that will unhinge you, mentally and emotionally.
The story line that’s bumming me out is the mayoral campaign. Who cares? Shut up, Billy Campbell. Uncrumple your forehead and also up your caloric intake because you’re looking weird and overly skinny.

I hate you so much for your opinion.
J/Ks!! I didn’t watch the show and this is a place where people can have opinions that differ, unless they’re about racism, in which case we absolutely all have to agree on that.
Welcome back! Maybe you should check our back catalog, some of the posts you missed, while you were gone. No reason, specifically. Just a thought. Maybe Friday? Fridays are cool…. (also all last week because some of the other butt heads were good, too.)
Oh, I mostly looked like that, too, except I was drunk and also crying so much.
There are no more butts. That was all of them.
BABY WON’T YOU SHUYAMOUF BABY WON’T YA HUYUMOUF
I was thinking the same thing. For a lady rapping about her amazing, otherworldly butt powers, she was was seriously lackluster. Whereas those other girls were seriously changing my life with their butts. Like, I made Mr. Kira watch me, to see if I know how to twerk it, and then we discussed what I needed to do to get better.
I didn’t even realize how wang heavy today was. I’m sorry, Ian. It was only one day, though. It’ll be back to GabeTymez on Monday!
Dude. Finding other Marin monsters is maybe today’s greatest surprise.
We saw him a few times at the Pirates of the Caribbean premiere last week (which I tried to write up but couldn’t get together) and he looks so much like an old LA rich hippie lady from Laurel Canyon that it was kind of jarring. Like, he looked like he has lunch with Meg Ryan and talks about anti-aging regimens. It made me super uncomfortable.
I don’t feel like expecting you to attend meetings wearing pants is an unreasonable request.
Grape Job! Everyone LOVED it!
The fault is mine. When I joined Twitter, I was too stupid to foresee that I would also join Videogum, and that my screen names would need to match. it makes tracking me more challenging, which is cool, because I’m an international woman of intrigue and like to fly below the radar.
You can’t be certain the person is just out to make money. Don’t be so rash.
AAAAH! AAAAH! AAAAAAAHHH!!! Ohmygod, first grace6697 and now CARRIE??? Dying of happiness! LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!
Oh man, TESTIFY. A comedian on Twitter spoiled it moments after it aired. It made watching the episode totally anti-climactic, and what would’ve been a surprise, totally obvious, because I’d been looking for the signs. Still bitter about it. Bloggin’! Story-tellin’! WHAT CAN’T SHE DO?
I know, Zac. I have a ridiculously short attention span when it comes to Youtube videos, too, and almost always only make it through about 30 seconds. But this one really had the goods. It delivered the goods. It was good? BLOGGIN’!
More importantly, have they acquired a taste for human SNUGGLES???? Because I am gonna give them SO MANY!
no, like this!
carefree and wearing white, with our hair trailing behind us in the wind!
if i ever meet these thieves i will tell them that i think they are GROSSE, Pointe Blank.
so so so so sooooo impressed by how great a job you did with so little time, godsauce. i hope that, with all my time to freak out and stress and prepare, i am able to do at least HALF as well as you.
um…sure? sure, steve. if you would like the confusion to be sexual, then sure.
