I always liked the armin tanzarian episode
Me too. I'm surprised that was pegged as the decline rather than Homer's Enemy. To me that always seemed like peak Jerkass Homer. If anything, that was way more out of character than Armin Tamzarian.

Difficult People is decent, but hit or miss.

You're the Worst was more fun in season 1 than season 2, which was a bit of a downer.

I was soooooo disappointed that a fun first season show like You're the Worst decided to go in the direction of We Must Educate The Audience About Very Important Issues instead of keeping it fun. Season 3 does the same thing unfortunately.

Good to know. Trying to decide on season 3. Y/N?

I can watch the Comedy Central roasts over and over. I really wish I had the ones for Hugh Hefner and Joan Rivers. I think I have all the others, though I had to buy the ones for William Shatner and Denis Leary on DVD. Would rather have bought them on a cloud/streaming service.

I also lack the roasts of Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the cable guy.

A disappointing part of the Pamela Anderson roast is they didn't include Bea Arthur's performance, which was one of the best parts. Her performance was probably too subtle for most people.

I don't have and have not seen the Drew Carey roast in its entirety either.

I watched the pilot of The Orville. Doesn't look promising.

Watching the first episode of Twin Peaks, for the first time.

Would this be better while stoned?

Those guys down under come up with some good tv. I like Rake. Jack Irish first episode bodes well for the series, too.

Watching the first episode of Bob's Burgers confirms my inclination to not have watched it sooner. How can anyone tolerate the voice of someone like the Linda character for any amount of time is beyond me. Plus, not generally entertaining.

Yeesh, the South Park season premiere was super-disappointing.

Agreed. Archer rulez, Bob's droolz.

I also re-watched the first season of True Detective last week. Man that was good. Still haven't watched seasons 2 or 3 yet.
