Just a good church going southern boy, who always watched the Oscars as religiously as church. One of my favorite places to be is in a dark theater, getting lost in another world for a couple of hours.

This might be an unpopular opinion but I don’t think Laurie Metcalf is Emmy nomination worthy for these two episodes. She’s really good though.
I was thinking the same, especially after watching Harriet Sansom Harris with her episode today. Yes, Atypical, it is more acting than comedy, but she was so wonderful. I agree that Jane Adams was also quite good in her episode. I would definitely put both of them over Metcalf, just based off the impact they had. Interested to see what the last 2 episodes bring as a true standout episode for any of the cast.May 11, 2022 at 10:35 am #1204949092
I ugly cried at the end. It reminded me of when I would go home to visit my parents and I would cut my Dad’s hair. He had dementia and passed away in December AND his birthday is soon. Also, Mandy Moore as Rebecca just sitting there staring, I know that look too. Everything was so real but still beautiful showing the love.April 21, 2022 at 9:11 am #1204925988
I finally watched last night. I had been hesitant because my dad had dementia, and I lost him just this past December. He had moments where he was confused over who some people were or see things that weren’t there. I had a few moments I had to mute and a few I had to cry through, but I made it.
Mandy Moore Mandy Moore Mandy Moore! So good.
I loved the mystery of who Kevin banged. Beth and Madison together were great.
I loved the small family moments too.April 14, 2022 at 4:00 pm #1204917234
Past Emmy nominee Yvonne Orji had a nice guest turn on The Wonder Years this week. It’s a very underrated show. Between it and Abbott Elementary, ABC has some quality comedies this season.March 30, 2022 at 3:35 pm #1204890586
I didn’t love the second season as much as the first. I actually like the procedural stuff a bit more than many of y’all. I really don’t like the daughters and those storylines though. Christine Lahti is also amazing. As much as I love Michael Emerson, he’s outliving his usefulness on the show to me. But I will still wait for season 3 eagerly.March 29, 2022 at 9:22 am #1204888037
I have basically lost track of what the plot even is of this show anymore. It’s merely a compilation of nicely shot scenes, a modern noir soundtrack, and Jodie and Sandra doing their best to make it work.
For me, part of what’s making this season feel like such a slog – and the season before it – is that every year these new characters on the periphery are brought in, and we’re given no real reason to care who they are. Eve’s hot new partner? What’s his name? Who’s Carolyn’s contact? What even is Carolyn doing on this show?
One of the elements of the first season that made the show really great was Eve’s further team of Kenny and Kirby Howell-Baptiste’s character, who disappeared without a trace to be replaced by Nina Sosanya and Edward Bluemel. Then they were switched out for some other guy last year. Now there’s Eve’s new partner. Why get invested in these people? David Haig’s character was a fantastic accompaniment to Eve too. Those first season players all had personality, everyone on the fringes since feel like ciphers.
I want to still love this show, but ultimately Killing Eve will go down as one phenomenal season, one fine season and then a downhill slope. And that downhill slope started the first time the words “The Twelve” were uttered on this show.
This is exactly the way that I am feeling about the show as well. If I have to take notes and look up online to see exactly what’s going on in a show, then it’s gonna be tough to watch. I really don’t know what’s going on some of the time in the show. If that makes me remedial, so be it, but it isn’t entertaining. I’m watching just for completion sake, not out of enjoyment.March 29, 2022 at 9:17 am #1204888011
Episode 11, 3/29/22 – Desking
When the students start participating in a new online trend that causes disruption to the school, the teachers band together to put an end to it; Mr. Johnson provides comforting life advice to Gregory; the teachers finally meet Jacob’s boyfriend.March 27, 2022 at 8:17 pm #1204883159
Gaga for Best Picture? Um, ok? Should have gotten Glenn. 40 years since her film debut in The World According to Garp.March 27, 2022 at 8:07 pm #1204883015
Ugh, I was fine until those last two wins. I said that then realized it was two women and realized that makes me seem cringey. But I have nothing against them personally, I just don’t get Billie’s music and I didn’t like The Power of the Dog. Anyway, time for things to maybe get juicy.March 18, 2022 at 7:58 am #1204857486
I was getting it yesterday as well. Today, I was able to fully sign in through the website.March 16, 2022 at 12:25 pm #1204854234
I hope Jennifer Morrison gets some traction for guest actress.March 16, 2022 at 7:57 am #1204853430
I am feeling their thoughts on all these limited series:March 14, 2022 at 12:02 pm #1204849996
I never thought I’d be so bored watching these characters. Regardless of how I thought the earlier seasons were on the whole, I was always fascinated and entertained by Eve and Villanelle, but now this show just feels like a chore I have to get through as a completist.
My thoughts exactly. Deep down last night I thought “Turn it off” but then also “Eh, it’s almost over”.March 13, 2022 at 5:07 pm #1204847442
Dove is an up and comer that I’m waiting to really breakthrough. Yes she’s a Disney starlet but is looking to expand. I did watch her in the Deacendants movies on Disney. She played Mal, the daughter of Maleficent (played by Kristin Chenoweth). She was also in Hairspray Live as Amber von Tussle (mom played again by KC), and in Schmigadoon (with but not the daughter of KC). She’s also been on stage in Light in the Piazza and the off-Broadway premiere of Clueless: The Musical.March 13, 2022 at 2:29 pm #1204846558
To those saying “Will Smith is just playing himself”, have y’all seen interviews with Richard Williams? Have y’all seen how he was covered by tennis media? Have you seen how lovingly his daughters speak of him? Will Smith got it right. It’s the same as Bale in The Fighter when folks said he was too over the top, then they had the real guy in the credits and it shows Bale nailed it.Not now
