A coworker is watching it, and he loves it, but he's also a Stephen King freak...so I have a hard time knowing if my popular-movie-only knowledge of Stephen King will be sufficient to enjoy it the same way.

I am absolutely not a Stephen King fan, and this show is amazing. I was worried that the Stephen King references would be hokey (Shawshank prison is involved), but it doesn’t play on that at all. It might be the best show I’ve seen. It’s that good.


Stephen King is one of the most self-referential writers ever, so it makes sense that the show is the same

These superlatives for this silly show are just insane. It's not even the best show currently airing (BCS)

Did anyone watch Season 1 of Cobra Kai on You Tube? I'm halfway through it right now and, very suprisingly, it is freaking awesome.

The new season of American Vandal is fantastic. I've seen a lot online about how it's not as funny as last year's, but I think the gap is way overstated.

I liked it but didn't love it. The dialogue had the same problems as the first season of Master of None. It's this weird compulsion to include exposition explaining every single point being made. It's small, but it bugs the horsefeathers out of me.

These superlatives for this silly show are just insane. It's not even the best show currently airing (BCS


This reminded me of a radio ad I heard for the local NBC affiliate. They were bragging about getting the syndication rights to Show The Big Bang Theory which they touted as "The funniest TV show ever"

Um, no. Not even a little.
