Comedians that think they should get to say whatever they want because it's their job to push the envelope, so do it just to illicit a response, are trash.

Chappelle's special was more miss than hit, with the biggest miss being the LGBTQ jokes. I mean, my all-time favorite Chappelle stand-up is the "How old is 15 really?" joke, which goes from seemingly making light of R. Kelly's 15 year old victim to breaking down the difference in America's coverage of Elizabeth Smart and Erica Pratt.

With that in mind, I was waiting patiently for that big comedic flourish that showed there was something deeper than trans jokes, but it never came. That along with the pro-gun jokes brought the special down.

Also would have liked more about America's dismissal of the black crack epidemic vis-a-vis white opioid crisis, that was probably the best material.

Speaking of comedians, Pete Davidson has apparently lost it. He did a performance at some university, and basically spent the entire set being grumpy and insulting everyone. Got news for you, Pete: You don't have Jeff Dunham's hand up your ass, so knock it off.

R.I.P. 

She was also on Overhaulin', and I am more familiar with her from that than from Mythbusters.

Apparently Ballers is doing an e-sports thing next season. I'm interested in that. People! Would I like this show?

Went to watch the first episode of the new season of The Challenge on MTV, when I saw they have a new professional wrestling documentary show. Following Gabe Sapolsky, Darby Allin, MVP, etc. After watching the first episode, I do recommend checking it out.

Speaking of MTV shows, the previews for this past season of Catfish seemed to hint that amongst the firsts, they were going to have an episode where they actually didn't catch the Catfish. That didn't happen.

Honestly, I was mistaken about who I was thinking of.  I had actually been thinking of Scottie Chapman.  It took me a bit to remember Jessi was the woman who filled in for Kari when she was out on maternity leave

Yes, she was. According to  IMDB, she was on 7 episodes of Mythbusters, 8 episodes of Overhaulin'. I only saw one or two episodes of Mythbusters with her, but probably 5 of Overhaulin'.

Its a shame the B-Tean's Netflix series, the White Rabbit Project, only got one season.

Did you watch it?  I loved Kari, Tory and Grant, but the White Rabbit Project was....not good

It wasn't horrible, but I thought it was pretty decent. 

Adam has a new show called Savage Builds now, and had Tory in the last episode., where they built devices for a food fight.

Do you like watching the Rock wear dope suits, sleep with incredibly beautiful women and screw up all the time yet end up on top? Then this is the show for you!

Kinda helps if you've seen the previous seasons, too. Keep in mind the esports storyline will be a minor one, compared to the two main arcs that'll happen this season. Plus add in that there's several other characters that have their own stories happening too. So it'll only get like 5ish minutes an episode, probably. Soemtimes a little more, but it won't ever be the main focus. It's a football show, first and foremost.

I gave up shortly into season two when I realised it was just pricks being pricks and never getting a comeuppance.

Not even the Rock's genuine likeability could get me past that.

I'm thinking it's time to rewatch Parks & Rec.

"8 to 12 players" line still kills me.

This should be green too, how did this happen?

Really wasn't keen on Killing Eve Season 2.

I wasn't surprised to see P-WB had less involvement in this season.

Restarted watching Suits - the early few seasons, when it was good.

Also just watched the first season of Derry Girls, which is hilarious.

My issue with the way he words everything is that he says he doesn't hate transgender people and that people can do whatever they want, but then his jokes invalidate that belief. He punches down instead of punching up. And he did the latter so well in his prime, which is why it's so disappointing to see him make trans jokes and defend sexual abusers. 

It is easier to punch down.

Man, most of Parks and Rec didn't age well for me. But Ben is evergreen.

Which parts didn't age well? I remember feeling uncomfortable at all the Louis CK stuff, and some Tom parts are awful.

Finishing up Hulu's Catch-22 mini series.  6 episodes.  Really liked it.  Never read the book or watched the original movie so I liked coming into it fresh
