    Media for Mrs. Maisel

    Thanks for sharing that. As intriguing and cool as Maisel Day sounded, I assumed it would end up the way it did for the author. Good for her for getting as much accomplished as she did, and good for the other folks who stuck with it too.

    Counterpart in the Media: Prime Coverage

    That has to be the strangest reason I've ever heard for cancelling a show. I get what he's saying and where he's coming from with his decision, but wow, that's a new one.
  3. I thought it was a play on the Godfather movies.

    Sweet Lady Jane Spoilers and Speculation

    I've always thought LLN was Latin Lover Narrator.

    S06.E17: Sicko / S06.E18: Suicide Squad

    Upon rewatch, I think my new favorite part of the episode was Holt's reaction to the podium prank. His hysterical laughter at the prank, followed by delightfully calling Kevin to share it with him, shows just how much character growth he's had since becoming Captain of the 99. Season 1 Holt would've never have found a work prank funny or appropriate. Between Andre Braugher's infectious laughter, to Holt telling Kevin "I'll tell you the entire story later" as if there's more to the story than what we heard him tell Kevin, I thought it was the perfect cold open.

    I finally caught up with this show after being consistently a couple episodes behind, and I'm really enjoying it. I don't know how, because I have been a theater/music theater fan since I was young, but I've never heard of Gwen Verdon or Bob Fosse until this show. I know their contemporaries, and I've seen quite a few of the movies they're associated with. Cabaret definitely stands out above all the rest, but I can't say that I ever knew who directed it, or what he contributed to the musical theater world. The only explanation I can think of is that I've never been much into the choreography side of musical theater because I happen to be terribly unrhythmic, so their work as dancer/choreographer has always been lost on me. I'm somewhat ashamed that I didn't know these two talents before, but am also excited now because it opens up a new chapter of musical theater history that I can dive into via books, youtube clips, and having a new frame of reference when rewatching their movies.

    The Man In The High Castle

    I've been pleasantly surprised every season that this show has been renewed, so I'm just happy it has made it to four seasons. The writing and storylines have had their ups and downs over the years, and I'm hoping it goes out on a high note.

    I've watched the first episode and found it so painfully accurate that I had to stop after one and will pick up with episode 2 at a later date. I was starting 7th grade in 2000 as well and some of this stuff hit home so hard (music and clothing, mainly) that it was like I was back in middle school. I was confused by the actresses ages at first. For the first couple minutes of the show I thought I was going crazy and asked myself if these two were my ago or are they really mature looking teens. Once they got to school and were around age-appropriate actors I realized it was a deliberate choice to have the 30ish-year-old actresses play 13-year-olds, and that one or both of the two probably created the show based on their real life experiences. Totally agree with all of this. I too was worried that Maya was going to ditch Anna (even if she returned by the end of the episode), so it was a happy surprise that she didn't. I also loved that Maya calls Anna "Na". For some reason that really rang true for their ages. You really can't shorten Anna into anything other than Ann, but of course Maya calls her Na. I feel like in real life, 10 years after this period, one would randomly remember when Maya called Anna "Na" and they'd laugh about what a strange nickname choice it was. I had some weird nicknames for my friends too.

    S02.E08: In from the Cold

    Do you really need to generalize an entire generation of people? This comment adds nothing to the discourse or analysis of this show. That being said, this millennial thought this was a great episode. I suspect Alpha Emily remembers more than she is letting on.
