 Seriously.  I was at work watching, but thankfully alone and didn't have to explain myself.

So, I will admit that I have been television crushing hard on Brie since Community and Mad Men. I loved watching the wrassling with my grandfather in the 80s and early 90s. So when the trailer for the show looked good, I got super excited.     The show went live today and I watched the 37 min pilot over my lunch today. I really enjoyed it. A couple of Mad Men alumni show up, and Marc Maron is really good in a Maron kind of role. I am looking forward to watching the rest...
 I can agree with that argument. An old warrior gone to fat. For me, while reading the book, it was always Anthony Hopkins, but Marvel beat them too it. I also always imagined Shadow as the representation of America, some Melungeon, hybridization of all races, but maybe a touch more First American than the rest.

Yeah... the binge model is causing me to miss most of the conversation that a week to week would generate, with not enough time to reflect before moving on.    Of course that being said, I just finished two weeks ago Handmaiden's Tale and have yet to go to that thread to comment. I do miss reading how a show's understanding develops. I came late to the Legion party, so reading the thread and Schwartz's reviews was great as I tried to process what the hell I was watching.

I think the idea of media bias and a "fair, impartial" press has always been misunderstood. The era of the Big 3 television journalism, before cable news, put forth the idea that they were fair and impartial and unbiased. They held themselves to a higher ethical standard, in my opinion, but in general they shaped news coverage to their own viewpoints.    Journalism in America has never been unbiased. Never will be.  Historically, you can look at the print media, and they...
