I fucking adored the pilot of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

Also, welcome back Jane the Virgin. You are fucking delightful (without the fucking HAR HAR HAR).

Crazy Ex Girlfriend continues to be amazing. The songs, oh my god.

Also, You're the Worst almost made me cry the other week. And the most recent episode with the extreme haunted house episode was perfection.

Also, Fargo is great. Jean Smart is killing it.

The extreme haunted house on You're The Worst was hardly plausible given that it had such intricate traps and a large ensemble of workers despite hardly any guests being inside of it...tickets would be like $500.

Then there's the lawsuits.


Fargo's running neck-and-neck with the first one. They're familiar in terms of some common themes yet totally different when it comes to everything else. I felt season one was a lot closer to the spirit of the movie, but this one might be a little better as it has a broader focus whereas the other one kind of revolved around three main characters.


Nathan For You is still on the mark...except the episode with the concentration camp display...that whole half hour and all of the ideas were just cringe inducing awkwardness without any laughs.

I thought the same, but a Google search brought up this nightmare:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/we...s-9816650.html

The truly implausible part of the episode was that they all finished it haha.

And wow, last week's episode was another winner. Probably my favourite show currently airing.

I feel that Nathan is forcing events a bit too much this year, like when he gets a drunk guy to put on a sumo suit and try to get the pizza at the back of the antique store. It's like he has an end point in mind rather than letting it evolve naturally. Having said that, the look on his face as he smashed the plate at the end was priceless, as was his reaction to the ghostwriter's sample sentence the week before.

I ADORED it. Inhaled all ten episodes this past Saturday. I liked Ansari on Parks & Rec, but don't care for his standup. Between this and the good things I've heard about his book, I'm now a fan.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will be sorely missed when its inevitably canceled. It was Wonderfalls, Glee and Gilmore Girls all mixed up in a blender.


Best New Television:

Marvel's Jessica Jones - 80/100 on Metacritic (Entire season premieres Friday on Netflix)

The Man In The High Castle - 79/100 on Metacritic (Premieres Thursday on Amazon Prime)

W/Bob and David - 77/100 on Metacritic (Season 1 now on Netflix)

I can't believe there hasn't been a Leftovers thread. Sure, I could have started one but I'm a thread killer, not starter.

Is anyone watching Flesh and Bone on Starz? Dark soapy show about ballet (and strippers, and hey why not some incest too). It's not great by any stretch, and it's slow, but I'm enjoying it.
