Find Me On:
Ain’t Them Bodies Saints? More like Ain’t Them Shadows Super Shadowy. Jeeeezus I can’t see anything. Would it hurt you to turn on a couple lights?
Kids do not love a good twist ending after all.
I love it when my boyfriend talks about spreading trolls across “multiple platforms” in a way that’s “meaningful.” It reminds me of how important he is.
He falls down all the time and it is all farts.
(I also didn’t watch it but I think this should be a pretty good approximation)
The Office, at this point, is a train wreck that I can’t take my eyes off of. It is like watching this broken thing limping to some sort of weird endgame. And yet I have to see it!
“Their response was excellent,” referring to the promptness of law enforcement in responding to the murder scene, is the best thing ever. It took this video from perfect to extra perfect.
Hi Kelly! I have HBO GO on my iPhone and I have Apple TV. If you have both – which it sounds like you do – it is very easy to stream. It works just like any other video you choose to stream on Apple TV. When you select the episode you want to play, you begin playing it and then you just hit the button that shows up next to the volume bar (it kinda looks like an envelope I guess?) and it prompts you to pick whether you want to continue to stream on your phone or shoot it up to your Apple TV. Choose the latter and there you go!
If you have already set up this link between your phone and your tv, it’s a snap. It’s the same button you would hit to shoot youtube up on your tv. And then when you go to the next episode, which you inevitably will, you won’t even have to prompt the phone to shoot it up to the tv. If it is in the same viewing session it will automatically do it.
Let me know if you have any questions!
I saw the Family Tree preview last night, in advance of the Girls finale on HBO On Demand (wow, that was so specific and so unnecessary). In any event, color me excited! Amazing lineup, and Christopher Guest certainly has an amazing pedigree (did you see what I did there? yes, you did now, because I pointed it out). I am looking forward to it!
I read this far and I am glad I did. All great points, most of which I agree. You hit it on the head with Adam and Marnie. Particularly Adam, I think you are exactly right – sometimes people are just f’d up and cannot function in normal, mature relationships. At least not yet. And to suggest, as others have, that this girl was somehow “good” for Adam because she was helping him mature ignores the most significant development in their relationship: he went back to DRINKING to try to fit in with her and her friends and to be comfortable around her. This is not a good thing, and it never happened when he was allowed to be his f’d up, but sober, self with Hannah.
Regarding the book issue – I believe we are witnessing one day in the life. The day hasn’t concluded and her boss hasn’t had a chance to react to her failure to deliver the pages. I suspect we will begin season 3 from this point.
Sofia didn’t let me watch that one. She said it was private.
I’m beginning to think “James” is meant to symbolize the evil Krispy Kreme conglomerate. “Killing Mike’s mom” is a metaphor for eviscerating Froggy’s original nom de plume.
Also, it could simply mean that James killed Mike’s mom. What a dick.
‘Step 5: do not eat this cookie, because it’s probably covered in metal filings and rat poop.”
It’s like a Portlandia bit minus the comedic timing.
As far as tramp-ax vids go, this is pedestrian.
Your analogy is a good one. As Jerry Springer devolved, it was readily apparent that what he was offering wasn’t “reality” in the sense that we had come to expect it from other talk shows, but rather it was this alternate universe of “actors” effectively playing to one stereotype or another. We were in it together, and Springer wasn’t trying to sell it as real. Even the WWF dropped the whole “wrestling is real” schtick eventually.
But if you look at TLC’s lineup, some of these shows purport to be teaching us something, or revealing the real lives of real people. No one doubts the veracity of the extremely obese woman or the “baby story” stories of pregant women having babies. And on the other side of the coin, Honey Boo Boo is appreciated for the silly side show that it is. So where exactly does this show, and particularly this segment, fall? Are we “learning” or are we just having fun with Honey Boo Boo? And what are TLC’s obligations to presenting us with some sort of “truth” or “reality” in a program like this? Do they have any?
Wait, Kelly, I’m confused. Is he my boyfriend or your boyfriend? I was hoping it was the former, but you said you met him at a cafe and you speak as though YOU are dating him. Why are you stealing my Jedi boyfriend? Now I feel all weird and embarrassed in this Padme getup.
Can we talk for reals about this, guys? Is TLC under any obligation to “verify” this guy’s story? Is this a wink-wink nudge-nudge thing? I mean, it’s clear that this isn’t real, right? We can all say that here without fear of reprisal, right? See, here’s the thing: if this is a comedy bit, that’s fine. It’s lazy and uninspired, but at least we know what it is. But if this is ostensibly supposed to be an authentic examination of someone’s authentic addiction, should TLC be allowed to simply put this on the air like, “hey this is what this guy told us! Crazy, huh?!” Or do they owe their viewers a bit more than that? This is a confusing piece of television.
“Fun”raisers. Get it?
Isn’t it crazy that this thread is about pedestrians getting hit?
Zap me again, erthan.
“most of them were just harmless fun …” the news reporter says as the “pranksters” emerge from BOXES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY. This is neither harmless, nor fun.
Me and erthan have a schtick. erthan, meet me here at 7:30am tomorrow. I want you behind me all day.
It’s either Jesus or Matt Pond (PA).
don’t kill my pedestrian!
I don’t care what the charts say, “Charlie Bit My Finger” is still my favorite song.
