I was watching Tru TV's "World's dumbest". Always a lot of fun, I tend to binge seasons of that over and over, and what's weird is there's 16 seasons of it for purchase on Amazon or Google play, the show as I recall was only on for about 6 years or so. It's almost like Rifftrax except the comedians are... well to put it nicely, they're a snarky bunch of people whose names you'll most likely recognize if you grew up in the 70's or 80's.

Just watched the first 2 episodes of the new Lost In Space.

It's pretty good so far, some interesting mysteries going on along with pretty good survival stuff.

Only minor complaint would be that they just couldn't resist making the family slightly dysfunctional, about the only thing I was hoping for going in was that they wouldn't go that way.

Since I am getting burnt out on my current Youtube playlist, I switched to watching even more of World's Dumbest on Amazon. Anyways just been jumping back and forth between all 16 seasons. I've bought a LOT of episodes over the years so I've got a ton of episodes. So I just play the first episode of any season and it's just continuous play until I come to an episode I haven't bought yet.

Watched all of the new Lost In Space, the first few are pretty good and then it gets even better.

Can't wait for season 2.

Me and a friend are watching the Last Man on Earth.  It's good, but by the fourth and fifth episodes it goes hard into cringe comedy territory.  It's still very funny but it is getting increasingly hard to watch.

Also finished the first half of the first season of The Toys That Made Us.  Mostly, it's a really good documentary series, though it occasionally induces eyerolls (most notably when it is mentioned that a certain something occurs in Asia and we hear a stereotypical musical sting.  Ugh).  I do really recommend it though.

At least make it through the last episode of the first season, it's a gem.  The show has its ups and down, but overall I really like it.

I love the show, but it never stops being a cringe comedy. It leans in pretty hard.

That’s true. But it has some really touching moments for such a goofy comedy. I also like that the character’s arc and change throughout the series. Usually on long running shows you’ll have a season arc where they improve as a person by the last episode, but then they go right back to how they were next season. Or on an episode to episode basis if you’re talking about sitcoms. But on LMOE, every character is very different from how they were introduced at this point. Except maybe one or two.

Just watched a couple of episodes of the Simpsons that have a... unique connection. They're both about climbing mountains. "The King of the Hill" and "Mountains of Madness". The later is about everybody in the Power plant trying to reach a cabin on a mountain because they all failed to make it out of the power plant during a fire drill. When asked what the ideal time for evacuating the power plant, Smithers says "45 seconds", then Mister Burns asks him What their time is so far, then Smithers says "I don't know sir, this stop watch only goes to 15 minutes". That one always cracks me up. There's lots of other great lines in that episode

"King of the Hill" revolves around Homer actually getting in shape after a bunch of kids egg him(literally) at a local park. He then starts eating "Powersauce" bars and then takes on a challenge to climb the "Murderhorn", the tallest mountain in Springfield... seriously, mountains of this size IN Springfield? Anyways it's a great episode, written by the always amazing John Swartzwelder, who's always been my favorite writer on the Simpsons.

I love Mr. Burns parting words at the end of The King of the Hill. "Once you've been through something like that with another person, you never want to see that person again."
