I usually can’t give two shits about the Emmys but Kyle MacLachlan’s snub makes me reaaaaaal angry.

Is this re his role in Twin Peaks, mate?

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

His roles (plural) in Twin Peaks, yes. Probably the best performance I’ve seen in the past year, and they couldn’t even find a spot for him in the less competitive Limited Series category.

After the timing issue of it missing the deadline for last season’s awards I’d have thought he would have received a nomination (and the show more nominations).

What about Twin Peaks? The 2018 Emmys’ bizarre snubs - The Guardian

There does look to be some quality on in there (and some I’ve haven’t seen or heard of).
 

I hope Elizabeth Moss wins for her performance in The Handmaid’s Tale - absorbing, layered and worth watching for that alone (it’s quality show overall too).
 

Quality idea for a thread, DC 😃

A Buffy reboot?

A spin-off maybe, but a reboot? Hmmnnn…

If so more Anya, please.

Goddammit. Just do a sequel. Ignore the “canon” comics and do a series focusing on one of the activated Slayers (or a group of them) from the last season of the show. Original cast members can pop up now and again if desired, but you can do so much with the way the last season left things open - you could start fresh with an entirely new cast and it wouldn’t even require being familiar with the original series.

That or just say fuck it and do a Fray miniseries/movie.

Been watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and I’m really liking it. It’s very clearly written from a woman’s perspective about a woman in crisis, which doesn’t usually appeal to me, but the show is just so creative and well-written that I can’t help but continue watching it.

Perhaps they should dial down the bisexual erasure while they’re at it.

Yeah, but he hasn’t made a decent movie since Moon, so…

Oh yeah, I forgot about that one. It was alright, but it didn’t stand out to me for some reason. Might need to give it another shot.

It’s a pretty solid little chamber piece that happens to look like an action/sci-fi pic. I think Jones might be better on a smaller scale.

Youth is believing that Tom is the villain.

Maturity is knowing that Jerry is.

What does it say about me that I always thought Jerry was the villain, even as a kid?
