    6 YEAR COMMITMENT TO THE PAIN OF SHIPPING DE. I DONT COMMIT TO MY OWN LIFE AS MUCH DO YOU UNDERSTAND

    • Related: do I need to buy this even though I have a black jacket and a black coat?








      My precious 2-hrs-after-everyone-else-has-gone-to-bed-tv-watching-time turned into 4-hrs-after-everyone-else-has-gone-to-bed-tv-watching-time so I could breeze through Mrs.Maisel S2, and yeahhh, it was very extra Palladino-esque with the speed talking. (in related news, I'm VERY TIRED NOW).

      I definitely enjoyed the season overall, even though I thought it was uneven in parts (the first ep was . . . not great? especially the stuff where we are supposed to think a club full of French people think Midge is uhmazing even though she only speaks English and isn't being very funny? Midge is lovable but not THAT lovable.

      Kinda thinking that's the last we will even see of Zach Levi since a) he represents the stability and domestic home life she rejected in the finale and b) and she said she wanted to be with someone who LOVES HER for her last night in town but chose FUCKING JOEL (the pun works either way!) instead of Benjamin (who really did love her, too!) and c) I think Benjamin = Max Medina, beekdamnit. I don't get ASP's fascination with Joel! we spent waaaaay too much time on him and his parents and their whosit whatsit and whatevs. I worry that they are setting him up to have his own club so that his future life and Midge's future life will be more compatible. He's rich-ish and the baby daddy-ish like Christopher, but has that 'just a common man who will punch you' thing like Luke, so you knoooooow Midge/Joel will probs be endgame.


      As much as I enjoy the show because OH THE PRETTY and TEH FUNNY, I gotta say I'm bothered by how disposable every woman not named Midge, Susie, and Rose are. And this!








      Obvs, Midge suffers from Rory Gilmore Syndrome (she's the MOST SPECIAL GIRL THAT EVER SPECIALED), but I thought it was troubling how throw-away the other women were (especially Joel's rando hook-ups, who were literally interchangeable, and how all of Midge's 'friends' at B.Altman's are basically dismissed as terminally dumb . . . and how the female staff in Susie's Catskills cabin AND the women from Rose's class at Columbia dreams were all trampled brutally as being pointless).


      That said! I could have lived in those Catskills episodes 5EVAH.


      THE CLOTHES. Wheee!

      • My favorite part about Ben was that he totally dug Midge's unconventional life choices. It sucks that he won't be given the chance to prove that he's awesome because the Palladinos will Palladino and we'll 99% end up with Midge and Joel being comedy OTPs at the end, but ugh, Joel is 1)NOT AS CUTE AS CHUCK BARTOWSKI, THANK YOU, 2)a sniveling little cheater, and 3)see #1. I am wondering if we might see a Midge/Lenny Bruce sidetrack romance at some point. These seasons are pretty short and tight so they might not explore that path, but during S1 I thought they might be headed that way.

        Also, are we just supposed to sleep on the glaringly obvious fact that Midge is kind of a shitty/neglectful mother? Her kids are straight up props this season.

        The Palladinos really push this to the limit. When she and Joel hold up traffic to get engaged and then people on the sidewalk started clapping, I wanted both of their special asses to get run over. Like, fuckin' MOVE, you douchebags.

        • Ugh, I still have to borrow a family member’s Prime password and START. Honestly don’t know how I’ve survived this long without viewing new Sherman-Palladino product.

          A friend and I did watch the Vanessa Hudgens switcheroo movie the other day and it was hilars! We drank every time her British(?) accent would suddenly drop, so we finished half a Bota Box. Also, there was the bizarre bald notch in the lead actor’s haircut that no one bothered to fix, the miniskirts and platform heels on a “royal” LOL, the complete lack of obstacles or drama, especially when they reveal the sham weekend to the dudes...What a frigging delight.

            • More Xmas movie recs!



              Love At The Christmas Table (free on Amazon Prime) has got Ted from Schitt's Creek, Winnie Cooper, Luke Danes, and Marty McFly's mom in it. It's super cute, y'all.


              No Sleep Til Christmas (free on Hulu) has got Justin from Brothers And Sisters (Dave Annable), his real life wife Odette (aka Reign from Supergirl), and Marcel from The Originals. The premise is wild but this one is also kinda cute.

              • Now for something completely different . . . gonna rec Derry Girls on Netflix.

                Comedy, Catholic high school girls in Northern Ireland during The Troubles in 1992. Only 6 quick (22 mins) eps, totally and utterly hilars. The accents are a work of art, so if you aren't Irish, I recommend subtitles.

























                Sister Michael is probably my fave school head of all time. OF ALL TIME.

                • It looks hllarious! I, on the other hand, cannot stop watching Babylor Berlin (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnsKrUymjCc) even though it can be very depressing. The female protagonist is awesome, though and the production impecable.

                  • I loved Sex Education on Netflix. I laughed until I cried.

                    I'm also sad Roswell is getting such shit reviews. I was really looking forward to some cheese. I need to replace Riverdale, because it's terrible.

                    • I thought Roswell was okay and could have some potential, but that is a big if. The writing was not great. Plus I know they are wanting it to have a political aura to it and I was not into that at all. Plus I thought she made some poor choices, like replacing their Tabasco sauce (which they could not legally use) with nail polish remover.
