  1. Re: The Cathode Ray Mission: The Misc. Television Thread

    It was very well made, but I do wish it were a little more eye opening. I will say that the extent of the mental and physical abuse doled out by their leadership was shocking, but other than that if...
  2. Re: The Cathode Ray Mission: The Misc. Television Thread

    I tried 2 1/2 eps of Netflix's The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and just can't continue. I'm kind of shocked at how much I don't like it. 30 Rock is - easily - one of my favorite tv comedies of all...

    Re: Róisín Murphy

    Roisin dropped another of the tracks from Hairless Toys, "Exploitation". It feels bit Grace Jones'y. It's lovely, but a bit slight. I think "Gone Fishing" is stronger. Hope whatever we hear next...
  4. Re: The Cathode Ray Mission: The Misc. Television Thread

    Just finished The Jinx. Yeah, it was very well made, but I do wonder if Jarecki originally pitched a 6-part series to HBO or if they ordered a sixer from him. He really stretched things out there. ...

    I LOVED the season finale. This show continues to be one of the most satisfying half hours of tv - shame that its ratings have slipped - hope it doesn't suffer the same fate as Looking after it's...

    Yeah, sad, but not terribly surprising news given how low the ratings had gotten. Glad they get to wrap things up with a tv movie. Imagine Haigh will do a really nice job with it, too. Haigh's new...

    Jorge - it might have more to do with the low ratings? Do they carry Enlightened, another recent critically acclaimed, but barely watched HBO series? If they do, then, yes, perhaps you're right.
  21. Re: The Cathode Ray Mission: The Misc. Television Thread

    I'm usually an advocate of dropping something if you're not connecting. I did not find the season to be a slog, but I will say that I think that even if it is a bit of a slog, it's almost worth it...
