    Need some time to process, but... I kind of dug the whole show. Everything just felt way more genuine because they were streaming from their house, or a cast party, and so on. Without an audience to play to, everything was way more focused.

    That's an interesting observation, and a correct one. You're right in that things were more raw and perhaps more real because of that. In the case of Perry's post-award thanks/speech opp, though, I found myself wishing that he'd had a full-house, dressed-to-the-nines, in-person audience, and millions more listeners on TV. And I think something may have been lost in all the video-streaming for a lot of viewers -- that many may have turned off, or tuned out due to the virtual format. I'll be curious to see the ratings numbers for the show.

    The Boys season 2 is better than the first. Twisted shit.

    This is true, and the show still isn't nearly as fucked up as the source material.

    I guessed the big reveal several weeks ago, but that doesn’t make Aya Cash any less amazing.

    We just finished season one. It is def twisted. And sobering.

    I think Friday may have been a bigger reveal about where she “grew up.”

    Friday’s episode might have been the best. I’m loving the Lamplighter story and everything to do with where he was.

    Deep and A-Train? I could give a shit.

    And to think that Homelander might not be the most twisted person on the show? Might not. Still debatable.

    Damn Covid. My kid asked me which streaming series I've finished. I said some of them had a notification at the end of the final episode that another season has been approved and will be coming soon. I went down the list and there might be 8 or 9 that have left me hanging. The most recent was Ozark. Others I'm waiting on: Billions, Succession, Bosch, Cobra Kai, Outer Bank, Lucifer, Better Call Saul. There might be a couple others. I didn't think I'd care for Schitt's Creek because of the stupid factor. But there are some funny parts so I'm watching that.

    Schitt's Creek definitely improves as it goes along. The kind of rare show that really finds its legs.

    A 10-second gag out of left field in the middle of a scene on Rockford is one of the funniest things I have ever seen on TV.

    Schitt's Creek ages like fine wine. The characters experience great growth over the seasons and you think they're gonna be just these stupid spoiled rich people, but by the end, they have really matured and grown into their own. I think my favorite character ending was Alexis.
