January, 2018



January 6th, 2018, 2:01 p.m. - "Oh, I don't answer questions that prove someone else's point"

The X-Files – "My Struggle III": I'm clinging to the probability that CSM is lying about being William's father, but if he's not, Chris Carter can bite me. Rating: 3 unnecessarily long car sequences

Speechless – "N-E-NEW Y-YEAR'S E-EVE": Drunk Jimmy is spectacular. The most spectacular. The spectacularest. Rating: 4 bananas

Modern Family – "He Said, She Shed": How many problems on this show could be solved by people just talking to each other and being honest? [Insert gif of West Collins saying, "So many."] Rating: 3 fake letters

The Good Place – "Leap to Faith": Aw, I wanted to see more of Mindy. I assume the next time we see her, she'll be coked out of her mind. Rating: 4 bands that make Janet act drunk (Drunk Janet is also spectacular)


January 10th, 2018, 10:37 p.m. - Who run the world? Girls

1. The Power (Naomi Alderman)
So if women developed a physical advantage over men and rose to power around the world, they would do the same things to men that men currently do to women?

Really?

Up next: Away With Words (Joe Berkowitz)


January 13th, 2018, 2:13 p.m. - "The real Bad Place was the friends we made along the way"

Ghosted – "Snatcher": I'm still not completely sold on this show, but I keep watching because I at least get a few laughs out of it every week. This episode was kind of slow, though. And the B-plot was total filler. Rating: 3 abandoned cabins

America's Next Top Model – "The Boss Is Back": If I had to place a bet on the winner right now, my money would be on Rio. Mark my words. Rating: 4 times I rolled my eyes at Liberty's name

The X-Files – "This": I loved this episode. So many fun moments and quotable lines. The bar is high for the rest of the season, guys. Don't blow it. Rating: 5 muffins

Speechless – "THE H-U-S-HUSTLE": The kids' plot was eh, but the stuff at the fundraiser was fun. John Ross Bowie remains a virtually undiscovered gem. Rating: 3 pairs of platform shoes

Modern Family – "Dear Beloved Family": Joe having an existential crisis and then passing it on to his friends was awesome. Rating: 4 massages from Fred Savage

The Good Place – "Best Self": This felt like a placeholder episode. Not bad, just...not great. Rating: 3 hot-air balloons
