    Last night's episode of The Leftovers literally had me screaming. I'm sure every Perfect Strangers fan had the same reaction.
    I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

    I really didn't like Bill Nye's new show. I wanted to, but it was awkward and just trying too hard, even with the great guests and topics.

    I'm hooked on 13 Reasons Why. It's so good and compelling.

    I have no idea what Perfect Strangers is, but The Leftovers is soooo good. If the season keeps this quality up throughout the season it's going to have been one of the most perfect tv-shows I've ever seen.

    That's cool! I didn't remember the thing about Mark Linn-Baker faking his departure, but I guess that's because I didn't realize they used a real world sitcom for that story.

    I'm enjoying The Leftovers. The most recent episode was mostly centered on Nora, and those are always my favorite episodes because Carrie Coon is a fucking phenomenal actress.

    I actively dislike when the show veers into overt metaphysics, but it's Damon Lindelof, so I guess there's no getting away from that. I'm genuinely curious how they're going to bring it all to a close in this final season.

    I came to The Leftovers for Justin Theroux in sweatpants; I stayed for Carrie Coon being a badass.

    And we get a double dose of her this spring because she's also a main character in the new season of Fargo!

    I didn't think it was ridiculous ever.
    I think each reason was detailed because any one of those situations combined with bullying and cyber bullying is a recipe for disaster. And the final reason is the best because haven't we all been in a situation or know someone in a situation where they go to someone who has the power to help but we can't communicate it rationally while we're "in it?" She sets Porter up to fail in a lot of ways. But where could she start with everything that had happened to her?

    Show had me sobbing. I am glad someone finally took on the topic with what.. nearly 13 hours of footage?
    Good on the creators of the show.



    Also, the show is one of the most diverse when it comes to casting. And no character is an afterthought. Even Sheri who probably has the least amount of footage for being one of the chapters.. I feel her pain and feel like I know who she was. Again.. kudos. That's not the norm when it's about this topic.

    I can't decide if I like Girlboss or not. The premise is good, but the main character is not very likable. Isla Fisher in Shopaholic was very similar, but likable, for example. Sophia is annoying and mean and I don't relate to her. I didn't relate to Isla very much but she was just so adorable you had to like her.

    But anyway, around E9, E10 they do this message board thing repeatedly and I'm DYING. It's so good and so accurate and I want you all to know I'm looking at our time here way differently. It's so funny that it's made me glad I kept with the show.

    First episode of Sense8 (ep 2) was pretty good.

    First episode of Veep season 6. Loving it so far!

    CBS This Morning for Dan
    Uber for Ben
    Buddy Calhoun campaign for Amy
    Adult Illiteracy ... and AIDs! for Selina
    Anti-Health Food for Kids for Jonah
    Gary and Richard Splett for Selina
    Kent for Jonah

    It's perfect, honestly.

    Next to last episode of Sense8. I feel like if you just tuned into episode 10 from the Christmas/New Years special event.. you haven't missed anything. SO disappointed.. but it's still really well filmed. I love the cinematography.
