I'm not usual a half hour comedy person, but these (B99 by the same folks as Parks & Rec, with The Good Place also created by one of them, Michael Schur) are just so much fun. I love them very much.

And Jane the Virgin comes back on Friday. Hooray!


Michael Schur was a writer on The Office too, wasn't he? I think he played Mose, Dwight's creepy cousin.

Yep! He got P&R going as an Office "spin-off," but it obviously progressed from there. I love him. He is a Chaotic Good fellow with a keen eye for comedies with tons of heart. He's great at ensembles with lots of love for one another! Also, he's always bringing in more and more diversity, which is cool.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!

The Shannara Chronicles are back tonight at 10, not on Freeform, but on Spike. It's magic, battles, gorgeous scenery and even prettier actors. :P

Anyone else watching The Resident? It feels different than Grey's Anatomy, House, and ER. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it, but as long as Emily Vancamp and Matt Czuchry are on it, I'll watch.

Of course, I started watching it because ads for it kept coming up while I was catching up on X-Files.

I've been watching and so far, so good. I like the cast; the veteran Bruce Greenwood as the egotistical head surgeon brings some depth to the show's sort-of bad guy. It's not surprising, considering how most people feel about health insurance, that the show has made the bean counters and up-coders who care more about the bottom line than patients' lives the real "bad guys." :P

I've been watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace series on FX satellite channel. OMG! Tonight was the 3rd episode. I think there are 6. Correction - 9.

I remember it being bad. I just never imagined how bad.

I haven't watched it...and now I'm kind of regretting not watching. :oops: All the reviews I've read have praised it.
I don't think I want to start in the middle of the series. Maybe FX will rerun it sometime.

They're playing previous episodes before a new one starts. Last night was episode 3. It's every Wednesday ight on FX 10 p.m. I think they're also playing them during the week.
