Just finished all 5 seasons of Dharma and Greg. The premise of show ran out within the first three seasons n they keep repeating same storylineS often . Also, in no way would they had been together. Since, Dharma was awful nit was overlooked Bc she was free spirit. They clearly didn’t think that they were getting canceled since finale was set up for another season.
Jenna Elfman was nominated for Emmy first three seasons but I looked up her submissions were awful. She had much better tape ; specially season 2. even though Helen Hunt was probably unbeatable,August 26, 2020 at 6:28 pm #1203669309
What We Do in the Shadows. I wasn’t crazy about the pilot, but everything after that is pretty perfect. Some of my favorite comedies are that way (30 rock, parks and rec, the office, master of none). It fills that absurdist 30 rock type of comedy I love so much.
Dear lord. I just got to the Jackie Daytona episode. I love this show so damn much. Stefani Robinson is such a queen.
Also, I’m two episodes in on Perry Mason. I stan Tatiana Maslany and Matthew Rhys, but I’m getting bored. Hopeful the show picks up in quality.August 28, 2020 at 4:23 pm #1203672759
Restarted The Crown from season 1 because why not?
I’d argue that the first two seasons of The Crown are some of the best cast seasons of any television programme ever (season 3 would be up there too had Olivia not been cast). To me Claire Foy gives one of the best performances on television EVER and whilst I consider her to have been the most deserving in her category in 2018 I’d also argue she should have won in 2017 too. I miss the old cast a lot. Vanessa Kirby and Claire Foy and even the actors who played more minor roles like Alex Jennings and Jeremy Northam really were excellent. I will say though that I find Matt Smith’s performance to be inferior to Tobias Menzies’s.
I really don’t understand how Jared Harris, Vanessa Kirby and Eileen Atkins got snubbed for the first season and how Alex Jennings wasn’t submitted. Atkins, Harris and Jennings should have won!

I just got done watching Chernobyl for the first time (I know I’m really late) and yeah this deserved all of its Emmys what a horrific tragedy.September 1, 2020 at 11:54 am #1203680290
Here to recommend Borgen, now streaming on Netflix.September 1, 2020 at 8:50 pm #1203681374
I’m on episode 5 of Ted Lasso and so far it’s surprisingly entertaining, the plot is really simple but I am having a great time.September 5, 2020 at 12:16 am #1203687371
Watched the pilot to “Space Force.” I didn’t laugh once. Woof. Steve Carell tried his hardest though, so E for effort, I guess.September 5, 2020 at 6:05 am #1203687518
Finished Unorthodox. Excellent series. Very smart and emotional. Haas should win this, and Rahav should’ve been nominated. I’ll probably write some more thoughts down about this in the limited thread, but I definitely recommend watching, especially since it’s only four episodes long.
I also got through all three of the newly released The Boys episodes. The show continues to be a great ride. I can’t disagree with anyone not wanting to watch due to the extreme violence, but there’s a lot of wit going on beneath that.September 5, 2020 at 6:17 am #1203687534
Finished rewatching Handmaid’s s3. The show got deservingly dropped from writing but my god how on earth can someone who watches this show not nominate Strahovski, Moss, Dowd, Fagbenle and Dretzin and the show in Directing but then nominate Samira Wiley for talking to a baby and saying Serena Joy is a gender traitor.

Forgot to mention that I’m also currently early in the third season of The Americans. It continues to be great, and I’m really enjoying Frank Langella’s guest work so far.September 5, 2020 at 8:44 am #1203687638
Have you seen Julia Garner yet?

I wouldn’t rank Garner in the top 10 performances on The Americans. You definitely see early signs that she could become a great actress though.
