Barry is very much fantastic TV. ronny/lilly (the episode you're referring to @pedram) is one of the best episodes of TV I've ever seen. I haven't laughed that much in a very long time.

Finished White Lotus, Season 2 was miles better imo because the characters were more real and relatable. season 1 was good but i absolutely hated some characters, Shane and the two stuck up bitches were just caricaturish and not really an archetype of real world people.

Overall 9/10, a great show that is definitely worth your time.

I think they were different. I obviously found Shane contemptible but thought it was funny how he was right about everything and still got punished for calling that out. Made him a tiny bit more relatable

S2 was great for both Tanya and the double couple dynamics (plaza what an actress), but the 3 generations of toxic masculinity thing of the De Grassis didn't really work for me and I kept wishing we got back to the other storylines.

What's people's thought on Albie? I see he's getting a lot of shit on Reddit for being a white knight/nice guy, some even called him misogynist which i felt was undeserved, from my perspective he's just a naïve boy who excessively put women on pedestal and paid dearly for it (of course from his dad's pocket).

"white knight"/"nice guy" all just butthurt feminist terminology with no real application in real life... i agree with you Pedram he was just a naive boy who needed real life experience of how women actually work.

@BC i actually enjoyed the De Grassis family line... my review is on the previous page if you missed it.

Also i agree Pedram, much more enjoyable season this one. Hope the series continues!

also what's so wrong with wanting to be a "white knight"/ having a "savior complex"?

Some people take offense at the idea of women not having an agency of their own, it's a feminist principle.

Same. I was far too young to catch the political overtones of this show when I watched it as a teen. Back then it was all about the CGI, saying "frak" and Kandsye McClure Laughing

I was more into Tricia Helfer tbh, but I vividly remember a scene, I think when Kandsye was wrestling Apollo, she had the finest booty on the show Proud

The way the show toyed with politics and religion in the middle of a spaceship while being chased by killer robots is all you can ask from televion, prime stuff.

So say we all Molenation

I'll watch Natasha Lyonne in just about anything so poker face is definitely on my list.

so 3 episodes into Poker Face and i've increasingly become annoyed by the plot device and Natasha Lyonne's annoying character/style of acting

loved the first episode, and thought i was in for an awesome series... i also don't mind the anthology element of introducing a whole set of characters and events for each episode... but by the 3rd episode it became clear to me what this whole thing is gunna be...

so basically every episode something bad happens and Lyonne steps in to the save the day with her highly deus ex machina/macguffin style character... it's stupid and predictable. So much so that the bad guys often have a whole lot more character and motif to them, you end up believing the plot would advance more interestingly if they got away with what they did instead.

so Chloe Sevigny was in episode 4 and i saw from the future episodes trailer that Ron Pearlman and Joseph Gordon Levitt will also guest star... honestly i love the new characters and events every episode, so i will ignore Natasha Lyonne's cringe as best i can

interested to hear what rest of you think of the show
