Transparent season 4....

First couple of episodes are OK... There's an airport scanner scene that reminded me of the Against Me song

Funny, I was about to make a thread about my lack of desire to watch TV as of late. I think I'd rather listen to music while I play a videogame or play on my laptop or dick around with an instrument or, well, watch a movie, than watch TV. I don't mean that in a snobby way -- I used to be a pretty big TV watcher up until about five years ago -- but for some reason, I just can't really get into it anymore, save for watching some Harvey Birdman or King of the Hill before bed.

What's wrong with me?

Oh, but BoJack Horseman is the best. Finished season four with the gf last night and was thoroughly impressed. Depressed, devastated, yet somehow hopeful for the future. That show really knows how to put you through the ringer.

ok but why you gotta go and make it sound like a hot take

seinfeld was great in its own right and needs not to apologize for its cleanness. even though it's as clean as will smith's songs, it's still sitcom writing masterclass 101. and don't u forget it.

the show was uniformly good until the last 2 seasons. and yes the last season was on crack. a guy in the old thread i linked to had a good analysis though. IRL she got rich from the show so she was trying to work that into the story since the whole thing was supposedly based on her real life. in that context the lottery thing makes more sense. it still sucked though

the brilliance of Seinfeld is that there was no real over arching serialized plot. At least none that matters. the entire series can be watched completley out of order and it's still as funny today as it was then.

they want you to be able to build trust with locals at your job site — so if having long hair could potentially create a significant cultural hurdle, they'd probably encourage the cutting of it
