    Another year without an Emmy nom/win for Andre is another year without justice in television.

    To have D’Arcy there ANNOUNCING the noms feels extra shirty. She was amazing all season but “Janet(s)” should have clinched her the win by itself.

    Rings Like A Bell: The Cast Topic

    D’Arcy, Jameela, and Marc were on the most recent episode of Hollywood Game Night. D’Arcy and Marc showed off their musical skills, everyone was super charming, and I have strong feelings about the result of the deciding game.

    S03.E08: The Worst Possible Use of Free Will

    And—assuming we can trust Micheal when he was telling Eleanor about Doug Forcett—all of the major religions only guessed around 5% correctly about the afterlife. Since he was telling the truth about Doug, he was probably telling the truth about that, too.

    This is so bittersweet. I love this show so much and will be heartbroken to see it end. But I love that Schur and co. are sticking to their vision.

    Fleabag

    I finished this season a couple days ago, and I’m still thinking about it, about Fleabag’s opening “This is a love story” and all of the various love stories that made up the season. While the Fleabag/Priest love story shapes the season, the line that emotionally punched me in the gut the hardest was Claire telling Fleabag, “The only person I’d run through an airport for is you.” From Fleabag covering for Claire at the dinner to Claire letting Fleabag know that she was the only person worthy of a ridiculous, somewhat creepy expression of love, that love story might be my favorite Unrelated to love: Fleabag slowly standing up in the Quaker meeting to announce that she was worried that she wouldn’t be as big a feminist if she had smaller tits. I laughed so hard that I’m sure the entire apartment complex heard me. Ditto on the Priest’s line reading while announcing that Jake’s bassoon piece at the wedding was entitled “Where’s Claire?” (Which, actually might be related to love as Jake—while unhealthily obsessed—did seem to want the best for her in saying that she should leave.) This season was just written and constructed so beautifully. I was laughed and cried—often at the same time—through the entire thing. I’d better see PWB’s monologue in the confessional at all the awards shows. She’s a genius.

    Fleabag

    Oof, my heart. That finale was perfection. I enjoyed the first series enough to re-watch it (twice, actually), and this series was even better.

    S06.E14: Ticking Clocks

    I love Sean Astin, so I think my expectations were too high for this one. I’ve been enjoying all of the behind the scenes stuff more than I enjoyed the actual episode. Though I did chuckle at Jake almost adding a “sincerely” to his text.

    S06.E13: The Bimbo

    This show has been making excellent use of the allowable bleeping on NBC. Hitchcock’s confusion over what he was and wasn’t allowed to say killed me. Episodes with Kevin are some of the very best episodes. Safe House might be one of the funniest episodes of any show, so I love that Kevin can still quote Nic Cage. Even more than that, I love how Jake’s gone from lying about reading an article in order to impress Kevin to actually being friends with Kevin. As usual, Andre Braugher was comedic perfection, and there will be no justice until he wins a best supporting comedy actor Emmy.

    Part of the class includes an in-depth discussion with Mike Schur!! *begins to try to plot ways to convince my new university to allow me to teach a similar course*

    Bob's Burgers

    Linda: *acting like a marionette* Louise: Well, there’s your beautiful bride, Dad. Bob: Ah, you get what you get. I love Bob and Louise’s interactions so much. And liked that the marrionette show was so bad it made Bob not only want to stop supporting the arts but to actively work against them.

    S06.E11: The Therapist

    Agreed. That also felt much more like season 1 Jake, though I’m pretty sure even season 1 Jake knew that anything obtained without a warrant would be inadmissible in court. Hated the Dissociative Identity Disorder bit. Loved everything with Rosa and Holt. And Cameron Esposito was a great casting choice. ALSO: Don’t tease a Kevin appearance and then not give us a Kevin appearance!

    S06.E10: Gintars

    I cringed, too. I could see it coming from a place of insecurity, but it seemed like Boyle had come to terms with Nicolaj hanging out with Gintars. Sure, Nikolaj gets to decide what he calls people, but the “real” father bit was ugly. It felt like a set-up for Jake to step in and make up for setting Gintars up.

    S06.E10: Gintars

    Dr. Yee = Holt and Amy’s Lil Sebastian. Rosa was particularly great this episode. And Nicolaj with his delight over Jake’s super long receipt proved he truly is a Boyle. Also, it’s been said a million times before, but Jake and Charles’ friendship is just one of the reasons why this show is so great. Most other shows would make Boyle the butt of most jokes, but Jake genuinely cares about Charles, even if having Gintars arrrested was morally questionable...

    Past Contestants: Future Stars

    This is two years late, but I was catching up on The Voice and I found myself wondering what Michelle Chamuel had been up to. Then I found her “Insights and Turnpikes” album—free to stream if you have Prime—and was pretty delighted. Her voice is lovely, as you’d expect from her.
