    I am finally watching Arrested Development, after years of knowing all the memes... it is funny, but I really can't take the voiceover. There isn't one moment where it's necessary.

    ?? The voice over adds to the humor. It’s kind of part of the jokes.

    Now Apocalypse is getting to the point there is so much sex that it's pointless and I kind of feel bad for the actors. Every new scene is some new sexual activity. Can you imagine being on that set and reassuring them they weren't making porn?

    I'm actually really enjoying Now Apocalypse. I think I'm at episode 6 now? The whole thing feels just like one of Gregg Araki's films and I love that. All of the weird sex scenes make me think of that MTV soap "Undressed".

    Veep Season 7. It's hard to say I "loved" the first episode, because it so accurately reflected our real world political situation that it actually really depressed me. But the writing was razor sharp (as always) and I think the whole episode was designed to signal that in its final season, the show isn't going to defy expectations and allow these wretched characters to be anything but awful (which is perfect). I do hate the "pregnant Amy" story line. I hated that they dropped the "surprise" at the end of season six. Just lazy writing IMO. The character deserves something more interesting and less cliche.

    Same here. I thought it was great. Araki's been accused of repeating himself, but I'm thrilled to have a teen apocalypse-style series for a new generation, especially since it's not easy to acquire/watch some of his old films (Nowhere! Grrr). The candy colored, neon look of it is fantastic, and I laughed A LOT. I think Severine is one of the most memorable, Araki-esque characters he's ever created. And speaking of memorable — the finale definitely throws in some imagery that it's going to be impossible to forget.

    I really enjoyed the too-brief first season of Shrill. Aidy Bryant is a national treasure.

    I got a red dot for this, so UPDATE: after the first season, I didn’t mind it so much, and it did become necessary. So yah.
