Mr. Hankey in the Boys universe would actually be pretty great...

I've finished season 3 of The Bear, and while it was good, it was also a far cry from season 2. There are moments of greatness; usually a bit or two per episode, with episodes 5 and 6 standing out as the high points of the season.

I think the biggest issue is that seasons 1 and 2 had a direction, something they were working toward, and this season... doesn't. The term "Rudderless" comes to mind.

Warning: Spoiler!


Also, put Uncle Cicero in every episode. He steals every scene.

I'm rewatching The West Wing for about the fifth time, as comfort tv, except it feels very different to me now. Jed Bartlett and most of the staff seem insufferably smug, with the mandatory moments of kindness. The sentimental, crescendo-ing sound track feels heavy and sometimes maudlin. Really, if I weren't liberal, I would see most of the cast as terrible, elitist people who are as convinced of their virtue and ability to plan for the future as Stalin was. Donna is pure, as is Charlie and Mrs. Landingham. The thing is, they are so charismatic that I also love the characters, although I can no longer tolerate Jed and his wife. The pomposity, the comfort with and desire for power. I should read the Robert Caro series on Lyndon B. Johnson and rewatch this. That would be an interesting exercise. I realize this is probably a cold take, and that I am a little naive.

I'm a liberal and I can't stand Aaron Sorkin's writing.

Watched the Netflix show SUPACELL which is basically Heroes -- normal people get powers -- but the twist is that it's set in black British subculture, which I basically know fuck all about. This made it pretty compelling to a standard-issue white bread middle American. The characters are well-written and the whole arc is six one-hour episodes, so it doesn't drag. Wraps things up while leaving a big hook for a second season.

Season three of Warrior is a lot weaker. The cast has doubled with everyone forced into a romantic pairing whether there’s chemistry or not and taking screen time away from Ah Sahm. The first worked as well as it did because Andrew Koji could carry being the fulcrum for near every story. Now it’s just so diffused.

Lee got it the worst. He liked a black woman once. Let’s set him up with the only other black woman on the show despite the circumstance of their first meeting.

Production design and fights are still strong enough to keep me going, but I’m not giving my full attention until someone gets kicked.

Yeah that last season was not great. Side note, the Irish cop is on House of the Dragon. His role seems quite unimportant, as do most of the roles on that show.
