Patton Oswalt got an Emmy, so that's awesome.

So People vs O.J Simpson:  American Crime Story just beat Fargo Season 2 for an Emmy. The world no longer makes any sense to me.

My wife and I had just started watching American Crime Story to laugh at how awful it is. It's truly terrible. My wife and I now have a great call and response that we quote to each other, both said by David Shwimer at different times who isn't trying at all to act like anyone other than David Shwimer, the whitest man I know: "It's like he's not even The Juice any more."  "Excuse me!  He will always be The Juice." (Going to make a gif sometime if I get around to it)

Where Fargo season 2 is my favorite season of television ever. I like it better than Breaking Bad, better than The Wire, better than most movies even. Not to say I ever put any stock in the emmys before, but still.

Got home early from work today so I had time to make that video.  It makes my wife laugh like crazy, so it was worth the effort of finding free video editing software. 

A video I made.  David Shwimmer corrects David Shwimmer on the status of The Juice.

Though I will say that the show has gotten better after the third episode.  It's still not very good, but it has stopped being laughably bad at least.

This seems like a bad idea for several reasons, but the worst is that we would get a lot more of his awful religious nut mother.

A word of advice- If your candidate is about to win or lose, take 48 hours before commenting about it on social media, including here. You may keep yourself from saying something very stupid that you'll later regret.

Well if President-elect Trump has taught us anything, impulse posting to social media can be very fruitful!

Marvel decided to stop trying for an Inhumans movie.  Their taking it to TV.  Probably won't have much connection to Agents of SHIELD, though.

Divorcing it from Agents of SHIELD is an odd choice since it feels like SHIELD has explicitly been trying to lay the groundwork in-continuity. I know not EVERY Marvel show has to tie in to one another, and I've come to accept that the movies are going to ignore Agents of SHIELD, but when two shows in the same universe are dealing with the same subject matter that closely, there should be a tie-in.

Depends how they go with it. The 'famous' Inhumans - the ones that haven't been in SHIELD - are often set in space, so it could be a Cosmic show, right?

(That would also make the Imax tie in make more sense too)
