    Queer Eye

    On episode 4 and so far, it's a very strong season. Episode 2 made me cry, Episode 3 made me cheer. All the emotions with this show. Edit: On Ep 6 now. This show is literally like crack and I wish I could slow down! Also there's a corgi in an episode and Antoni's brain slowly malfunctioning is probably one of the highlights of the four seasons combined.

    Langdon

    I know the movies are generally panned but I love Tom Hanks, and I do love the books. It'll be interesting to see who they cast as Langdon.

    Past Seasons Talk: The Tribe Has Spoken

    Hey all, hope this is an okay place to ask for recommendations for previous seasons to watch? I was a fan of the classic seasons when their aired and watched 1-10 faithfully as well as some of the later seasons (like Toncatins with Coach and the Heroes vs Villains season. I think the reason I stopped watching was because I hated Russell so much LOL. CBS All Access has pretty much every single season and rewatching the earlier seasons I loved has reminded me of the reason I got into the show. So if you had to recommend some other seasons to check out (say, Season 20-present) to give a watch, what would they be? Fun twists, loveable characters, hateable villains that get satisfying comeuppance (never forget Lil vs Jonny Fairplay in the final Pearl Islands immunity challenge trolololol) or just solid seasons all-around.
  5. I love the name, both first and middle. 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I got spoiled on Tuesday about Tony's death in a totally irrelevant YouTube comments section. Since Tony is my favourite character, the movie was pretty much unsalvageable for me so I went full on Dr Strange and got all the spoilers. Saw some screencaps of the death scene which destroyed me. I was HOPING that if I absorbed enough, I would like become desensitized to it and would not leave the theater a shaking sobbing mess. HAHAHA. yeah, right. As soon as Dr Strange held up his finger to signal this was their one chance, the floodgates opened and I did not stop crying until the credits rolled. I don't even remember any of Cap's stuff that happened after (nor do I care, not a Cap fan). I'm glad that Tony got his 5 years with Pepper and Morgan, but it just wasn't enough. He deserved a lifetime with them. Overall I give the movie an 8/10. The tension didn't feel as steady as it did in Infinity War and the time travelling was just confusing and all over the place, as amusing as it was. Loved all of the callbacks to the other movies, from Morgan wanting a cheeseburger, to Pepper suiting up again (Rescue!!! Which was spoiled back in August and in interviews about Infinity War prior!!! But Rescue!!! *GESTURES WILDLY AT HER USER ICON*), to revisiting all of the older scenes with the stones. One of the reasons I knew a Tony death would kill me was because RDJ would act the shit out of it. And he did, from his "I am Iron Man" (more chills) to his "Hi, Pep" in his last breaths, yeah between him, Tom Holland, and Gwyneth herself (I razz on GP and her zaniness but she is an amazing actress) I was just a wreck. It's so unfair. At least he died surrounded by his family and friends, but I still am bitter that Cap got to live out his life with Peggy while Tony gave it all up. And I honestly think that was an intentional switch the Russos made: I think most of us bet on Cap dying which would have been the more obvious choice. He has less to lose, he's still a man out of time. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go back to sobbing every time YouTube suggests an Endgame related video to me.

    The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

    I'm honestly going to sub to Disney+ just for these Marvel shows. I don't pay for my Netflix account (I use my mom's) so I can fork out the monthly fee to keep myself happy.

    In The Media: Schitt Hits The Fans

    I think it's rare that showrunners and writers will plan an entire show's life from birth to finale. So many shows have been dragged on even when the pool of ideas has run dry, and as much as I could also watch it forever, eventually it would reach that point and turn into every other TV show going through the motions. To know that Dan and Eugene already know how everything is going to end makes me feel like they'll give the show an amazing sendoff.

    In The Media: Schitt Hits The Fans

    Season 6 will air in 2020 and will be the final season. I don't want to see this show go because I love it so much, but I am so relieved that it's on their terms and that the can finish the stories the way they planned.

    Definitely. QE probably made the arrangements for Mary to get some appointments ahead of filming, to meet the dentist and get the molds for the teeth done. It's TV magic but I don't think it took away from how moved she was by the end result.

    Overall I found season 3 much stronger than season 2 but not quite as memorable as season 1.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    The billing on posters is complicated, and just because they're on the poster doesn't dictate name position. Don't think too much about it or you'll get a headache, especially with a cast list this huge. Paltrow isn't a surprise, as we've known she was going to be in Endgame for almost a year (filming last summer). And the spoilers about Pepper's role are still making me squee internally the closer we get to release.

    In the Media: The Riverdale Gazette

    I'm so gutted. I had admittedly not been as into Riverdale this season (I'm a few eps behind) but Luke seemed like just such a genuine guy and I really felt his heart in his role and his acting.

    S08.E16: Harvey

    Harvey FINALLY fucking acknowledges that Donna's the one, and after some rather anvil-icious unspoken encouragement from Alex, Zane, and Samantha, goes over to her place. (BTW I'm obsessed with the Cold War Kids song that plays) They kiss, start undressing one another, cut to credits as she leads him to her bedroom, 100000 heads exploded on Twitter, and I personally loved every second of it. The whole Thomas (Donna's temporary bf that got caught up in all the legal BS this half of the season) situation is kind of up in the air, but Korsh said in an interview they cut out their breakup scene so... it's a bit messy and grey. We'll see how they deal with it. All of the post-finale interviews are really promising and have me hyped for Season 9. I really hope they do this right and do it justice since Korsh has toyed with it for 123 episodes.

    FUCKING FINALLY. That 120 seconds made up for 120+ episodes of will they/won't they bullshit. Also, DAMN THAT WAS HOT.
