  1. Thought the pilot episode was engaging, mostly because of Blanchett. Reminded me some of Bombshell, though I was surprised to find Schalfley here more sympathetic than I found Megyn Kelly in that movie. I think both show women who are playing a role for personal advancement, but Mrs. America gives more overt suggestions that its character is aware that she is doing so. It will be interesting as the story progresses to see if there is *development* of the characters -- because I'm not sure how there could be.
  2. This show is so real, and raw. Unapologetically black. Watched the first episode via their Facebook page and it reminds me of Fruitvale Station, that whole "there's a bigger story going on here than the news and media shows you." There's some great anti racism subtext with one white guy There's a powerful scene in a bus with a mysterious guy who might be a bit psycho, but the whole scene is about the existential fear and sorrow that Glover's character feels as a black man, wondering if the universe is just set up to have him fail as a way to balance it out for the winners. I think this show is gonna be a gamechanger. I dunno if white people will like it much, there's an undertone of righteous anger there that might offend, but it's a good offense. It's also pretty funny, in the same way movies like Friday or the Wayans Bros are funny. There's one character, Darius, that is kinda hilarious. Good show. Definitely check it out.
  3. Is anyone else watching this show? At first I found it incredibly dark and uncomfortable, but the more I watch it, the funnier it gets. It's sort of like a very dark spin on Seinfeld. The show alternates between stand-up segments and little vignettes from Louie's life showing how the latter influences the former. Taking inspiration from C.K.'s own life, the show chronicles a recently divorced father/comedian trying to make sense of getting older and returning to the single life. It's pretty hilarious...but still dark and uncomfortable.
