Episode #47: Out of Order

FOI 47

-Cynara gives a NEGATIVE review of the new Jason Reitman flick Men, Women and Children. As she is wont to do with movies she hates, she gives spoilers BUT I warn you before it happens (trust me, it’s not really a big deal). Anyway, most of this has to do with people’s misapprehensions of what the internet is really like and how internet friends are REAL, DAMMIT

-With some effort, we redirect the conversation to The Good Wife (a discussion which does contain spoilers up to October 12, as well as a casting spoiler for the future)

-We even touch on How to Get Away with Murder, which Cynara isn’t sold on but wow was that final scene on October 16 a doozy (our discussion of this show is rather spoiler free — we do NOT reveal the “last nine words” that Viola Davis says, which weren’t as good as the 90 wordless seconds that preceded them, anyway

-Would Dollhouse have been a better show if the final episode had been shown first (à la HTGAWM?)

Saturday Night Live is tanking in the ratings! Stefon is crying about this! (Maybe they should ditch the North Korea yellowface sketches and see how that goes?)

Episode #43: Cynara the Cat

Aaaand we’re back! The episode’s title is not entirely reflective of the content, because Jenny couldn’t come up with a witty reference to the New York Times being racist, obnoxious and completely nonfactual in reference to one of TV’s most powerful producers, Shonda Rhimes.

First on the docket: Netflix original series Bojack Horseman, Cynara’s endorsement of it and a mention of her resemblance to the character pictured at left.

Second: The abhorrent screed that appeared last week in the Times, penned by a TV critic who apparently does not actually watch TV and thought that the sequential words “Angry Black Woman” could actually be part of a compliment.

Additionally: Other TV chatter that covers some Bunheads, some Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, some Cosby Show, and a false promise to talk about Fargo.
