He's playing himself, right?
I already made this joke with the "is this acting or a cameo, technically?" line.

Sorry. I missed that. Having never met Seth, I don't know what he's really like. I guess it's a testament to his acting chops that I will now think of him as that character.

We binged The Bear on Hulu over the weekend and let me tell you it's a wild ride...  Hopefully, we'll get a second season of this, as it's well down and had ending that resulted in a trending google search.. 

also enjoyed Outlaws on Prime and seeing as it's in Bristol there is an actual Bansky painting appearance.. Stephen Merchant and Christopher Walken are great in it and a second season has already aired in the UK which the US gets in August...

I also binged this entire thing this weekend. Solid B+. There is near Safdie Bros levels of tension in some of these episodes and episode 7 is in the running for the best 30 minutes of television I've seen this year.

Second the calls for another season of this.

Uh, thereís Via Chicago in one episode but I donít recall anything else by them. I could be mistaken.

(Also a Chicago by Sufjan Stevens opening credit to one ep.)

Felt like a sure thing. Itís kind of turning into the show of the summer. So many people have brought it up out of nowhere with me.

As long as you discontinue about a season before Fiona leaves, that seems like fun.

She was excellent in that show, is Jihane Bousfiha a pen name you use for publications?

I mean, I donít think itís some unicorn of an idea that once the narrative lead/main character of a show leaves in season 9 or whatever, that the show generally gets worse. Who are these people who prefer the Fiona-less Shamless seasons?

And re: the music career, she did a ďCotton: the fabric of our livesĒ commercial too, if you recall.

Well if the US version of Shameless had followed in the footsteps of the UK version, most of the original cast would have been gone by the end.  The UK Frank was pretty much the last one standing in that one.

And honestly I donít really see myself watching it again, things really went sour when Frank walked away from the dying women at one point.
