    I really hope something else pops in comedy before the Emmys because SNL has not been great…or even good so far.

    If SNL takes the supporting trophies it will be a disaster, leave them to the guest categories and we will be fine.

    And also, I really tried to watch PEN15, I gave it like, a thousand times to watch it, but it was so cringe to me, and i know that’s what they want but it’s not for me I guess.

    I feel the same way about that. Both actresses are great in it, but I don’t get the appeal at all for the show. I can’t even find anything funny because I just feel embarassed the entire time.

    I like the premise, but it’s sooooo cringey they passing as middle school students, I just couldn’t

    I’ve also struggled with PEN15. I only made it two episodes into the first season. My issues stem from the fact that I was in seventh-eighth grade (like the main characters) during the same time period — the early 2000s. And my best friend and I were basically “attached at the hip,” too. So, the show is like low-key reliving junior high, and I…really don’t feel like doing that, lol.

    I tried to give it another go recently, and only made it five minutes.

    Truth Seekers starts off at 58 on Metacritic. 

    And 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. 12 positive reviews and 5 negative reviews: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/truth_seekers_2020/s01

    I think Pegg and Frost can still happen (they are fairly well known enough to make it into a weak field) but I don’t see it getting into Writing or Directing or Series.

    Keeping Frost in at the Globes because of the Amazon and the British bias.

    I will start watching Ted Lasso soon but I don’t get the confidence in the predictions for it to sweep the Globes. Its reviews are ok and it screams more of an individual Sudeikis nomination to me there and an acting favourite at the Emmys rather than a big Emmy juggernaut.

    Comedy Metacritic score (the reviews for Truth Seekers are still coming out so even though it seems to be weaker than I thought it might have been it might have a higher MC score still)

    1. Pen15, season 2 – 93
    2. The Baby Sitters Club, season 1 – 87
    3. Search Party, season 3 – 78 (we might be underestimating this one a lot)
    3. In My Skin, season 1 – 78
    5. Frayed, season 1 – 75
    6. Maxxx, season 1 – 74
    7. Teenage Bounty Hunters, season 1 – 72
    8. Ted Lasso, season 1 – 71
    9. Love, Victor, season 1 – 69
    10. Connecting, season 1 – 65

    11. Hitmen, season 1 – 63
    12. Woke, season 1 – 61
    13. Emily in Paris, season 1 – 60
    13. Staged, season 1 – 60
    15. Truth Seekers, season 1 – 58
    16. Intelligence, season 1 – 54
    17. The Duchess, season 1 – 35

    Will be interesting to see how American critics respond to both I Hate Suzie and Two Weeks to Live. The former is being premiered at Vulture festival by HBOMax so they do seem to be campaigning for it so I assume with it being produced by NBCUniversal it is eligible.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Ted Lasso has best comedy series written all over it, feel good light hearted comedy that voters may eat it up</p>
    And it has the fact that it’s a big hit on apple and PEN15 is as unknown as they get

    If none of the shows we know ends it up coming back, I would for sure bet on them.

    It honestly won’t surprise me if HBO category I May Destroy You here post the winter awards simply because unlike their sister HBO Max they don’t have any Comedy contenders here and because they might have two other high profile Limited Series in contention (The Undoing and one of Mare of Easttown or Scenes From a Marriage)

    I don’t know whether this means productions will shutdown (for example there is a national lockdown in Wales and Sex Education is still shooting) but this doesn’t look very good for The Great getting back in…

    God this season will be so empty, I already see the U.S. on another lockdown as well, because cases are breaking records every single day.

    Of course, safety first always, but I will miss seeing new faces and the returning shows.
