I really appreciate the dad-nerd humor in the AutoZone commercial about the slow-starting car:

“It just needs a charge. Don’t worry, it’s free.”

“Are you sure it’s free?”


“Staying true to the game” is (a) a cop-out to cover for lazy writing, and (b) a lie when so much of the season contained content not true to the game.

I’m out on The Last of Us going forward. That was an awful season finale.

“Oh, but it was quite true to the game.” Fantastic. Then that is a suck-ass game.

The second half/third of the episode may have been the worst acting performance for Pascal yet, and he’s behind a mask 99% of the time on The Mandalorian.




“I love that she’s unapologetically badass. There’s no back-story trying to explain something horrible that happened to her that explains who she is. No, that’s just who she is. She just is this person; no explanation needed. Just like men—when a male character comes on screen and is a badass, you just accept it. And I’m hoping that’s what fans do with Rosa. She is who she is and she just doesn’t give a shit.”- Stephanie Beatriz on her character, Rosa Diaz, in Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I may need to watch this.

One of the few shows I’m actually actively watching, and it’s actually a family show.

Yes, you should watch this. Diverse cast, non-traditional roles, humor from character, not from cliché.

My opinion, of course; YMMV.

I wasn’t sure I was going to make it with this show. The first couple of episodes were very rough. But it seems to have found its groove, and I find myself laughing more as the season has progressed.

And Stephanie’s character is my absolute favorite, followed closely by Andre Braugher’s.
