The GI Joe and He-Man episodes were the best. The Star Wars episode was good, too. I loved how they came upon the 3.75” size for the figures.

Was about to watch the Barbie episode tonight, but ended up watching the first part of that Elvis documentary The Searcher

Watched the end of "The Mindy Project". Kinda sputtered out in the last few, but overall enjoyed the show much more than most comedies out there.

Watched S01:E01 of ‘The Handmaids Tale”

Umm... wow the third wavers are strong in this one. I mean Elizabeth Moss was amazing but it was a bit hard to watch it was so heavy handed

also she's tackling a feminist role while turning a blind eye to real life suffering in her "church"

My kids started watching the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air cause they love Alfonso on AFV. I forgot how funny the first episode was. It holds up pretty well.

Carlton was the only reason to watch that show.

These are great, but Alfred Hitchcock Presents suffers from the same thing The Twilight Zone suffers from... stiff 50s/60s TV acting.

So Gordon Ramsay's new show, 24 Hours to Hell and Back, is essentially the same as Hell's Kitchen. The structure is identical, except Gordon Ramsay eats with other people and wears a costume when he tries the food for the first time. And there are clocks in the background for most of the show. And all that the clocks really do is reveal how highly edited the show is. A 15 second conversation takes 15 minutes on the clock, it's fun to watch. But yeah not really sure this show needs to exist.

My wife watches this show, and It's really hard for me to believe that almost every situation in this show isn't staged in some way.

The chef/chefs walk out in almost every show. The owner is bumbling nincompoop at the start, but manages to pull it together by the end.

It's so ridiculously contrived, even for a bad reality show.

I don't watch The Goldbergs on a regular basis but I do like the real life clips, pictures, etc at the end of each show.
