Find Me On:
I feel like this is the type of thing that is understandably embraced with wide open arms by the writer types as its only reason of existence is to validate and over-glorify their own lives as privileged, what-I-have-to-say-is-so-damn-important (it probably isn’t!) personalities.
The idea that she’s writing a freaking memoir at age 26 says it all. It is also not funny… at all. I think HBO/everyone oversold it – because of Judd Apatow – when it’s actually a “light drama”. As for Kelly’s comment about her real life disconnect, I do not hold it against the show as it is clearly about young women like her who want to be “independent” but don’t want to take on the full responsibility and are enabled by their parents.
Having said that, I didn’t completely hate it and I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for at least 3 episodes.
I read a small spoiler regarding the graphic novel that may bring me back for another season…
POSSIBLE SPOILER AHEAD
Lori and her baby are killed in a bloody way in the prison. (Google the illustration) OF COURSE, they are in no way bound to the novel but the thought alone… See you in October!
“(maybe GET SOME MORE GIRLS on this cast),”
Their problem is they need to GET MORE TALENTED GIRLS on this cast. The only other female cast member that’s actually good is Nasim Pedrad. The others are in a constant race to which one is less deserving of being in a national TV show. They’re all so bad!
PS: I was truly surprise that I enjoyed this episode so much and now all I can do is feel bad for Daniel Radcliffe because his episode was SO BAD, even though he’s way more talented than Channing Tatum and Charles Barkley. Are the SNL writers secretly Death Eaters?!
NEXT WEEK’S CLIFFHANGER: the farm is crawling with zombies who heard Andrea’s riffle for the Zombie Partay call.
FOLLOWING WEEK: All zombies walk up to Andrea to ask for their wristbands and she goes “I’m all out of wristbands!”. They eat every inch of her guts in an overly graphic scene that lasts 4 minutes and 23 seconds.
This show is turning into “The Killing: Zombie Edition”. They have a generally decent idea but don’t know how to execute properly, wastes too much time setting things up and then nothing happens.
I was waiting for the pan out scene where they show lots of solar panels on the roof of the farmhouse to explain their never-ending power supply. I mean, did you guys check out their fence? Three lines of barbed wire! OH MY! At this point I was expecting a Lord Of The Rings fortress! I’m sure zombie wander by and turn around worried the wire could tear their skins and give them ugly scars. Lord know they’re all out of Mederma in that pharmacy!
On yet another sunny afternoon in SoCal, Charlie Harper wakes up to an alarm reminding him he has a 3PM appointment with the man who tailors his beloved bowling shirts. On his way there, he loses control of his Mercedes-Benz and drives off a cliff. The End.
(I have nothing more to contribute to the conversation)
They said “drugs” about 4 times. “Narcotics” about 72 times.
Last year, I was all Team Fringe, but this season I don’t know which side to play anymore. It’s going faster down the JJ Abrams show canon of throwing around plot lines and then acting as if they never happened.
Is there an alternate/time travel universe theory where people can just forget that some shapeshifting guy stole a frozen head and has a plan to bend the time space continuum and destroy the world while we sit around drinking coffee in a town where deformed people use an electromagnetic pulse to alter your visual perception?
I didn’t even know we had a new episode last night, damn youse. Thanks.
Just realized that the recaps are funnier if you do not watch the show the night before… SHUT UP, D33R.
I’m bored of the alternative/time-filling stupid universe story lines. They just don’t make sense to me. At first I thought it was only different after the plane didn’t crash, but then it turned out to be a completely detached story where… SNOOOOOOREEEEE
Playing Devil’s Advocate here: the writing seemed clearly phoned in. I mean the entire opening monologue was about Hamlet? (Yikes) Two movie spoofs and another two skits about “Being Jude Law”.
The man is about to premiere a film about organ debt collectors, co-starring Forest Whitaker. Doesn’t that sound like something begging for a spoof!
I think this video was a paid advertisement for…
It’s all in the subtleties. Wonder bread…
Lady Gags wins! No way people are going to keep googling whether she is a hermaphrodite or a transvestite after this video!
“Oh no, now my Oscar moment will be immortalized next to this woman wearing drapery”
- Tom Ford, ex-fashion designer
Aw man, Robin Williams forgot to promote the Old Dogs DVD… do-over!
Ben Stiller not bad, just a bit too long. Less is more, Ben Stiller!
Remember last year when he showed up as Joaquin Phoenix? That was funny!
- O 75
Do not worry. I converted the snuggie into a shawl.
Some people can’t handle the truth. I literally just ingested two slices of cheese pizza. Uh.
Damn it! Didn’t my publicist call you publicist about my pajama jeans ensemble?
No, thanks. I already had my own pizza, like the anti-social person that I am.
