    Ok, I just finished it. I really liked that season. I have no idea why everyone hated it.

    The new stand-up specials were okay. He's still a master of layering and structuring stories, but he just doesn't have much to say. He's reached a point of fame and wealth that he's so far removed from society that someone telling him he's not funny is a bigger injustice to him than actual injustice. He does close the second one with his Iceberg Slim story, which is good, but I think I first heard it well over five years ago, so it felt more about filling time than anything.
    His second one is much more rough than the first. I didn't enjoy it as much, and as many critics have said, it needed polishing (which is what these more intimate shows are used for). Good jokes, but not great. They need that finishing touch.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I hated the ending. Hated it. Made me so bitter I quit the series.

    I can see a lot of people hating that ending. I thought it was kind of perfect though.

    I actually can see that. Probably why I hated it so much.

    I mean on one hand, it was super abrupt. But for, I guess, a normal person, it would make sense for that all to happen.

    It almost crossed the line onto Departed territory. But this actually made sense, at least to me. It definitely wasnít meant to be a perfectly wrapped up package with a bow. Thatís been true for every season through 5.

    If there was a thing I hated about season 5, itís fhat Deb didnít do anything with the Dexter/Brian information. Itís like that never happened despite the season taking place immediately after season 4. That irritated me. But itís kind of small beans compared to the rest of it.

    Deb is largely a wasted character when it comes to anything related to her Dexter.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    It's time for Animaniacs
    And we're zany to the max

    Animaniacs is being revived on Hulu! Spielberg will once again be producing the show which debuted way back in 1993. New shows will hit in 2020, along with the library of original shows. Pinky and the Brain will also be returning.

    A really great episode of Blacklist this week. A plotline as old as the hills, but just beautifully executed.

    Check his papers.

    Our afternoons in college were Tiny Tunes, Animaniacs, X-Men and Batman: the Animated Series. A golden era of animated entertainment.

    Animaniacs really was awful. Even Pinky and the Brain on rewatch werenít as good as I remember.

    Helloooooooooooooooooooo nurse!

    I re-watched a bunch of the Animaniacs eps on Netflix. The only thing I realized was how short the eps were without commercials and skipping the (what seemed like) 3-minute intro song.
