Jessice Jones Renewed for another season
and Black Mirror too!
So how long before we get new Black Mirror on Netflix? Thought the Christmas special was awesome/depressing af/totally Black Mirror-ish.

Billions was a lot. . . less terrible. . . than I thought it would be. I will stick with it for a second episode.

Yeah, I like Giamatti but the previews just made it look so over-the-top schmaltz. I mean that whole "what's the point of having fuck you money if you never say fuck you" line they hammered a trillion times in the previews is just so bad. It's like something someone who thinks Scarface is the best film ever would think was bad ass. But it was surprisingly tight and came out fully formed, especially for a pilot. It's still a vehicle for Giamatti and Damian Lewis to chew up scenes with a nanscent plot behind it, but it surpassed my expectations.

The S&M subplot I'm already tired of.

Watched F Is For Family on Netflix over the blizzard weekend and thought it was pretty dang funny. Was upset it was only 6 episodes.

Pretty good. They cuss A LOTT, but Bill Burr and Justin Long are great. It kind of hits the dark and heavy tones like Bojack Horseman, but I think I actually got more laughs out of F than I did from Bojack.

PS I LOVE Bojack

So Aziz Ansari has to have the most annoying voice of any comedian since Gilbert Gotfried. So offputting.

I hate Bojack and F is For Family. But I really, really love King of the Hill. Though Bill Burr does some good standup.

What does King of the Hill have to do with Bojack or F is for Family?

Duh. They're all cartoons about trashy white people (or horses) made for adults.
