    Ohh, why do you believe he's secretly horrible? I need to know!

    I think he's great at self-promotion and cultivating his fans. It works for him. But I was super turned off when I saw that there was a kickstarter or something to get him to read the Cheesecake Factory's menu and it made me super uncomfortable. (I just looked it up and it hasn't reached the insane goal of $500k and it wasn't his idea, so bygones kinda.) It just felt a bit of cultural snobbery to me. Perhaps I'm reading into it, but I would have declined that.

    Oh I am so glad to find someone else who doesn't worship Neil Gaiman. I feel like everything he writes is "Look at how smart and clever I am with this idea". Over and over. I remember when he wrote an episode of Babylon 5 and it was just painful - embarrassing attempts at humor and character voices that were all wrong. And the fanboys and girls ate it up. Ugh.

    American Gods was too long and Good Omens I couldn't even finish.

    Also I believe he is secretly a horrible person who pretends to be nice.

    Is Neil Gaiman the MOST overrated ever? I sorta think so! I mean, I think the book is sloooooow going and the first three episodes of the show are convoluted af.

    I also feel like Neil Gaiman is one of those dude writers that *think* they are super progressive and visionary and stuff but are kinda not? It feels like how a guy would write for women if he thought he was being modern tbh.

    ETA: Also, the Laura (dead wife) character is way more fleshed out in the TV series and I feel like fan boys don't like it, and so far her character is my favorite thing about the show (and she's kind of a dick, which I like).

    Side note: the casting in American Gods is GENIUS. Seriously the most perfecting casting in recent memory.

    I was excited about Twin Peaks, but it's on Showtime. Bastards.


    Was considering American Gods because of Ricky Whittle, but have to admit that I kinda sorta hated the book so I dunno.

    I loved the new Twin Peaks! I wasn't expecting to! I just thought it was hilarious and weird and wonderful.

    I am also enjoying American Gods (the last two episodes really heated the whole thing up for me).

    The Prison Break reboot was fun but not groundbreaking. I'll take Michael Scofield where I can get him, and I'm happy they rewrote that turrrrrrible ending they tacked on last time.

    I found The Night Manager ridiculous.

    Has anyone watched the new Twin Peaks?

    I have that on my watchlist for after I finish this season of The Americans. He looks so pretty.

    I am very late on The Night Manager, but it was mega good, y'all. Both Hiddles and Hugh Laurie were fantastic in it and I'm not even into John Le Carre, but the story was engaging and fast-paced. Plus, since it's only 6 eps, Mr. Issie and I finished it all this weekend without feeling like OMG, we have HOW many more episodes?

    And if we're talking purely superficial, shallow attraction Hiddles >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The New One.

    I really like The Good Place! Clever, funny and a twist at the end.

    Wait until you see the crap they pull with Gilbert's character later on. It's totally missed the point of what AoGG is supposed to be although I do think the girl they cast looks physically more like the book Anne than Megan Follows.
