Probably not a good idea for Spencer to be challenging Andre like that trying to steal his clients but we'll see how that goes. Getting into a fight with Terrell Suggs probably wasn't a good idea either. And Ricky gonna be out of a job now that contract he was supposed to get was given to Alonzo. Okay premiere but nothing to take home about.

This was pretty good. I'll keep watching.

This is a good fit y'know? Like, I've seen Geek and Sundry and it's just too authentic. I play D&D, I don't need to watch other people play D&D just to see them play D&D. But this isn't pure D&D on this show, it's Dan Harmon and a couple of people doing improv theater in a D&D setting. Like that part where the DM asks Paul F Thompkins to make up a centuries old oath on the spot? That works in an improvised comedy scene where we all get to laugh at how there's no way it will not end up sounding stupid. In an actual D&D game though that would be shitty DMing. So this is good, and the on-purpose shitty animation goes really well with the attitude/atmosphere of the players.

I can't wait for the Aubrey Plaza episode.

What a great series, possibly one of the best I've seen. The character development is unlike anything I've seen on T.V for a while. Season 5 wasn't as great, but 1-3 were outstanding.

Do you guys like thew Netflix show Bloodline? It's one of my favorites, and they just announced a release date for season 2, 5/27.
It's kind of a soap opera, but the characters and situations are all dark and fucked up and people die.

I can't believe I was disappointed when it ended. Kept looking at how much time was left during the two last hour long episodes, and was starting to realize these bastards are going for a third season. Masterfully done. This series is phenomenal. Netflix is very lucky to get these risk taking concepts.

The second season pulls itself together nicely (assuming you didn't binge watch season one and then go directly to season two without a year long wait, which I should have done, but literally watched all of season one twice last spring and then again in the late winter). People new to the show who watch the first season and then the second directly after should have no issues at all, and will avoid most of the confusing plot elements.

Being one who did not binge season one right before the second season, the individual character development and plot lines can get VERY BLURRY, if you don't remember EXACTLY how each of the 6+ (at least?) crucial characters are involved in the overall plot.

Main issue being, the first season did a beautiful job using flashbacks/forwards and the current setting of events. It was the shining hallmark to the sublime mystery and storytelling.
Let quite a few months pass, and the deep plot lines of a large handful of mostly secondary, but crucial characters gets completely forgotten. Take that into consideration when the blurry lines between flashbacks and present day may get you quite confused. It's very reminiscent of the Sara and Danny plot in the first season. Is this real? Or something different? Not to mention all the noteworthy characters from the first season, and some new ones, get the flashback treatment mixed into what's currently happening, and it's honestly difficult to know what is real, what already happened, what's actually happening. After a few episodes it's perfectly clear. But you have to remember a number of the multiple character plots that were taking place in season one, and the second season just picks up right where they left off. They don't waste much your time bringing you back up to speed in what happened previously. So it takes a few episodes to come to realize how they are balancing flashback plots with quite a…

If It has the emotional effect of a thunderbolt that's even better, preferably someone betraying their country or other entity that they have allegiance to.

Super high quality version of the best films ever made. About $20 a movie but if you were looking at any of their box sets this might be the best price for a while.

In Julien Donkey-Boy, the titular character is an untreated schizophrenic with an oversensitive, abusive father. That is actually a schizophrenic in treatment, the medication really wigs us out once we're on it, and that father is usually the enforcer to give it to us.

An untreated schizophrenic usually self-medicates and hooks up with criminals, until their anxiety issues are worked out and they become a professional crook. That's what my uncle did.

The psychiatric industry doesn't want you to know that a psychotic break is medication or social stress and anxiety turning someone that is turning antisocial (for instance, going to business or law school and applying the princples you learn) into a delusional mental patient.

Shrinks don't like personality disorders, business and law do. I was studying to be an economist, some low grade cholos and a Juggalo hazed me at work because I was working without making small talk unless I was on break. Boom, psychotic break when first given anti-depressants.

Harmony Korine is a Scientology shill.

Its weird. Every line sucks. But somehow it all comes together... how? nobody really knows. even I dkwtf.

That might have something to do with the plot being based of Asimov's work; who pretty much created what is now seen as sci-fi cleche in terms of how AI/human interaction might work-out.
