LOL, Brooklyn 99 got cancelled and found a new network, and we still haven't even found out if we're cancelled yet.

Just binge watched the hell out of the entire The Terror series. Wowza. I love the ever loving hell out of Jared Harris. He’ll surely be nominated for some awards for that performance. There was also a reunion of Caesar and Brutus from HBO’s Rome that I enjoyed.

I’ve always loved that polar exploration stuff, Shakleton, Franklin Expedition, Sir James Ross, etc.

Pretty much all my favorite comedies are on NBC, so yea, hopefully it's just a better fit for all involved.

I may have been speaking partially from a historical perspective. I will admit to enjoying W&G though as a dumb, laugh-track sitcom, even though its sytlistically not at all the same as my favorite comedy sitcoms.

Yeah, places like the AV Club have been trying to sell it as something really special at this point, when, IMO, it more just that it's somehow managed to survive despite just being OK. It tries too hard to be both grounded and absurd at the same time and doesn't pull it off.

I'm sure that people that have never worked in a retail environment think it's hilarious.

That baffling voice he's doing should have been sign #1 to someone that they needed to take another pass at things.

I thought most of the season was just OK (which is fine with so many good people on the show), but I REALLY liked the finale. A lot of things happened that felt like they should have happened at least a season ago.

And, holy horsefeathers, that Barry finale. Kinda makes me wish it was a one and done thing, or even had been a movie instead, with how well it wrapped up.

Don't forget Sy Mittleman from Children's Hospital.

Winkler's flip to total comedy ringer basically from Scream onwards is pretty great.
