i think part of what made the first series so great was the whole "i can't believe we're doing this!" vibe that it had. this season felt more like "well, we're still doing this." it kind of felt like they ran out of gags and were just being absurd for the sake of being absurd.

but yeah, it was still enjoyable, and i have no life so i would definitely watch more

I didn't mind the really bonkers stuff at all; I actually wanted more of that than things like "Zak Orth pines for his friend's GF, and it's played weirdly straight for too much of it." Basically I thought the first two episodes and the last two nailed it, and everything in between was REALLY inconsistent.

i really enjoyed it. the movie and first season are of course better but i just love the wet hot universe so much that they can essentially do whatever and i'll be all for it. not really certain how they could do more at this point but i'll always be up for it if they do

Oh yeah, they can do whatever they want and I'll show up. Even a "lesser" WHAS series is still funny as horsefeathers.

The Defenders

Spoiler: show
must have gotten a great deal on severed limb/head props, I wasn't paying super close attention but I think someone loses a hand/arm/head in every episode

I enjoyed it, but the iron fist was by far the weakest link.

Defenders was fun. Dialog got pretty repetitive at points, and like all of the series I thought it lost steam at the end.

I'd like to see them make all of these 8 episodes. Seemed a perfect length.

Did any one watch The Tick?

I thought it was fun, and I enjoyed the dad humor.

1/2 way through Ozark on Netflix. Enjoying it, although it's not how I am used to seeing Jason Bateman

The most "fine" show I've ever watched. Wasn't terrible, wasn't great, just fine.

Though every character on that show is completely unlikable. Except Ruth. Ruth horsefeathering owns.

sounds like you are like a 5.5/10 and i would probably give it a 7/10 imo

agreed mostly, though. i think it's solid af and i'm probably biased bc i really love bateman ever since teen wolf too
