I believe Kai. I’ll make that clear up front. Someone cheating on their partner while claiming to be monogamous is abuse. Let’s make that clear as well.
Here’s where I’m really stuck, though. The excerpts of what is clearly an amends letter being made public, and most likely used out of context. I don’t believe at all that Joss saying he was succeeding at being “normal” was him conceding to be a woman-hating misogynist. It was him explaining what he’s learned from years of privately being an asshole. And, if I’m really honest, coming from a 12-step perspective, he sounds like a sex addict.
I also don’t understand hating the man with such vitriol based solely on said excerpts. There’s really not a question about how the piece Kai wrote should make you feel. The slant is crystal clear. So, making some of it public really irks me, especially since none of it should be.
Lastly, we’re being given an after-the-fact account of a person. Years after the fact. And we’re attempting to hold them accountable for it today, without all the behind-the-scenes knowledge that would allow us to fully understand. When you take bits and pieces of years old truth, and focus solely on that while ignoring everything positive done by the accused since… we end up with Trump in the White House because [insert anything you might’ve heard about Hillary here]. Since Joss’ return to Twitter, he’s been staunchly campaigning for social justice and has spoken about how much he would’ve changed about his past (professionally and otherwise). Damning him to the world of hypocrites who should never be allowed to work again… just doesn’t seem right.
I’m getting back on track. S. L. O. W. L. Y. (But I’m probably never going to be able to post about anything immediately after it airs until bitches pay me enough to quit my day job. Just sayin’.) So, here it go (real extra good shit that you need to watch in bold):
Watch this shit:
(a.k.a. Watch it or don’t, but either way it’s not the greatest ever):
Wasn’t terrible, but definitely didn’t hook me. If you’re into “narrated from beyond the grave”-type shit, that happens to be British and also includes food, then this is your bag.
- Mariah’s World
I mean… it is what it is. If you like reality shows about famous people being famous, here you go.
- Terry Crews Saves Christmas
Cute holiday fun. Even better if you wait to binge it until after the world explodes because dumb assholes couldn’t stand female e-mails.
- The Wall
“Who wants to be a—PLINKO!”
Watch this shit:
- A Series of Unfortunate Events
I was sort of prepared to not be interested in this show, but my husband was all about it, so we watched it together. I was won over, folks. It’s a real good time.
Just your average, wholesome, all-American “aliens are making shit float in the woods” coming-of-age-in-a-12-year-coma story. Definitely worth your time.
- Caraoke Showdown
Musical Cash Cab, hosted by the great Craig Robinson.
- Emerald City
Probably about as dark and realistic a take on Oz that we’ve seen.
- Mary Kills People
Essentially, it’s Dr. Mary Kevorkian. Not the greatest pilot ever, but Caroline Dhavernas is amazing and I trust her choices. So, I’ll keep watching.
- The Mick
Bad Teacher meets Uncle Buck. It has its moments. Three cheers for Carla Jimenez.
- One Day at a Time
Cuban family drama, love, and happiness. Seriously, such a good show.
Other than it being based on the Archie comics, it’s not really any different from your typical high school drama. Except maybe the murder mystery? Not that it makes it a bad series, mind you. Just don’t expect anything ground breaking is all I’m saying.
- Sneaky Pete
Giovanni Ribisi‘s crazy Scientology-loving-dumbass is an ex-con/future re-con. Not mad at it, but it’s not my new favorite thing.
- Spy in the Wild
Fucking crazy-town first-person point of view of animals in their natural habitats. Some really amazing sights.
- Throwing Shade
If John Oliver is America’s dad and Samantha Bee is America’s mom, then Bryan Safi and Erin Gibson are attempting to be America’s gay uncle and sassy aunt, respectively.
(a.k.a. You fuckin’ get it, this shit probably sucks):
- Big Fan
“Big fans” have a trivia face-off against celebrities about those celebrities. Unless you’re as big a fan of the celebrity as their stalkers are, the show really won’t mean that much to you.
Truly meh. I tried watching the original UK version before this series, and it got boring real quick. This US version explains just a bit more of how they find these voluntary “fugitives,” but that doesn’t really make it any more interesting.
Things are slowing down for the year, folks. The list below is a short one. Might not do another roundup until mid-season officially starts.
The things worth your time (especially in bold):
The things that may or may not be worth your time, a.k.a. Meh:
See? So few new shows that I don’t even have anything to tell you that you definitely shouldn’t watch! I’d say it was a great month if it weren’t for all you fucking morons that didn’t vote for Hillary.
Anyways… Now that the new series have stopped premiering, I’ll probably force myself to quit being lazy and start actually writing review-y shit again. (But no promises…)
