I assume that everyone is anxiously watching to see if our country is going to be a pile of flames in two months tops (which SNL correctly envisioned a few years back)
But for those wanting to distract themselves, let’s talk TV!
Honestly, my TV watching was limited this week because I was up in the Portland mountains with no reception (sob).
This Is Us continues to charm although sometimes I feel like they try too hard to be over the top but sentimental. I wasn’t crazy about the grown-up Randall storyline this week. Kevin continues to be a puppy I want to hug.
Eyewitness has started to bore me a little with the whole drugs/gang/evil FBI thing but hopefully that will pick up eventually. Philip’s coming out scenes were heartfelt but not over the top (and I still think there’s something creepy going on with the husband). Despite all of Lukas’s terrible choices, I can’t help but feel for him as he’s dealing with the whole burgeoning sexuality issue on top of recently witnessing a multiple homicide. I don’t really blame him for not having his crap together.
I really love Crazy Ex-Girlfriend but I need Rebecca to get her shit together soon. She has so little self-awareness it’s hard to understand how she gets through a day. I also wasn’t crazy about the whole airport trope but with the cliffhanger, I’m giving them credit that they’ll subvert the trope next week. I always liked Greg and Rebecca better than Josh but I think both of them need to work on themselves for a while before they have any chance of having anything resembling a successful relationship.
Aside from that, I’ve restarted watching Misfits on Hulu and I forgot how amazing this show is.
One last thing, I’ve made the decision that Truckasaurus is the official winner of the cancellation pool. Congratulations Truck for correctly intuiting which show would be the worst! Email me your contact info for your prize at email@example.com.
