    Everyone on Silicon Valley was unbelievably dumb. So dumb.
    Season 2 of Bloodline is either already available or is very soon. Can’t wait to watch it all at once.
    I’m already up to season 5 of my Mad Men re-watch. That show was so good. The best, you might say.

      I know, just when I thought they were making progress (on SV).

      I’ve been much more forgiving of this season than you, but this most recent episode was pretty bad. I still laughed (mostly in the scenes involving Jared), but Richard’s stupidity this time was way over the top.

      A+ to the scene where Jared tried to hug Richard, and Richard recoiled in the most awkward way.

  2. All I’m watching of Game of Thrones and the only thing that kept me from being a bawling mess after this last episode was this gif:

    Also, I am very excited for Chef’s Table Season 2. It’s the most beautiful show.

    • Good to know about Chef’s Table! I’ve been thinking about watching it.

      • If you love food porn then you’ll love it. The whole series is just profiles of chefs with gorgeous shots of the food set to classical music.

      Hold the door, though, are you fucking kidding me?? I was so annoyed at how dumb that was. As soon as Meera started yelling “Hold the Door!” I was like, no way. This can’t be happening right now. And then they stretch it out for, conservatively, 45 minutes as though you don’t immediately realize what it means the second she tells him to hold the door.

      I love Brienne and Tormund so much! I want them to have their own spinoff show.

      And I know I should save something for the actual GoT recap post, but when Dany told Jorah to go find a cure, I had this mental image of him being chased around a laboratory by a wayward robot, knocking over beakers while Yakkity Sax plays. He was ready to just crawl off into a corner and die, and she was like “I command you to find a cure”and he’s like “oh, I guess I could do that, yeah.” I’m sure he’ll just zip around until he finds one at zero hour, but I wish he was going to shut himself in with some biology textbooks and a bunsen burner.

      • catweazle says:

        I kind of felt like the Dany/Jorah moment was more of a “We both know you’re going to die but I care about you again so I’ll give you a consolation boner for the road” thing. Although who the f knows, maybe he’ll go to Asshai and use ancient magic to turn himself into a dragon and save the world.

  3. I recently watched all of The Real O’Neals and found it to be quite charming. Definitely not the worst sitcom I’ve ever seen. It was a rough week for Outlander in an episode with both a dead baby and a child getting raped. However, I still think it does one of the best jobs of any show in handling the fallout of trauma and I’ll be curious to see if they have Claire have a real come to Jesus about how her actions have created a lot of pain for those around her. The 100 finale was pretty great, specifically how cool Lexa is.

    I recently started a list of all the shows that I want to watch so that I have some sort of system instead of jumping around all the time but it already has 40 shows on it and now I’m overwhelmed. I should have thought about this more before getting a pesky job that takes up all my time.

    • Martinmegs says:

      I hated the season premiere of Outlander so much that I haven’t watched it since. Did the season get better? I thought The 100 had a real drop for awhile but the last few eps were great.

      • I really liked the premiere so I’m not entirely qualified to answer that question but I think it’s been a good season so far. What was it that you didn’t like specifically? The 100 did have a few bad episodes but I think it ended pretty strong. Lexa was so cool.

        • Martinmegs says:

          Well I needed more Jamie. I hated being in the “present” so long and it felt like they belabored the plot point of the stuff with her original husband. I felt like, ok I get it, show me Jamie now

        • Well, if it makes you feel better, that’s the only episode so far that has taken place not in the 1700s, so there’s lots of Jamie after that.

    • Sota says:

      I think The Real ONeals is entertaining and funny. I’ve enjoyed it here and there. It’s not appointment television for me (is that still a thing anymore?) but I find myself looking for it when I can’t decide what to watch online.

    This season of Orphan Black is good, but I seriously have no idea what is going on. I can’t keep track of who works with which agency and who wants to do what with someone’s genetic material. Watching Tatiana Maslany act is enough to keep me interested. It helps that Felix and Donnie are also entertaining.

    We watched the newest Penny Dreadful last night, and it was my favorite episode so far. Eva Green is very good at her job.

    This popped up on Facebook. I’ve seen some of them, but will check out a few of the others. Definitely Terriers and Top of the Lake…

  6. I started re-watching 30 Rock from the beginning because I don’t remember much of it, and hoo boy, the first few episodes are rough. I also really need to get caught up on Grantchester before PBS takes the videos down.

  7. Kate says:

    The season finale of Call the Midwife snuck up on me. No more new ones until next spring! Except maybe a Christmas special.
    Did you guys know Megan Amran from Twitter wrote this week’s Silicon Valley?

  8. Commentatrix says:

    I’ve been watching so much TV because unemployment, so allow me to recommend Grace and Frankie and Halt and Catch Fire Season 2. I didn’t think I’d like it that much but I couldn’t stop watching it. I started Lady Dynamite today, but I don’t think it’s totally my thing. I’m looking forward to the new season of Unreal starting soooooon.
