Difficult People was canceled this week and it shook me to the core. Difficult People filled a hole in my heart that had been festering since the 2006 cancellation of Will & Grace. From their shitting on Kevin Spacey to their shitting on Woody Allen– we’ve lost them at a time when we needed them most.
Canceling a show this good is criminal, but it is especially bad given that Difficult People is a Hulu original. It’s not network, it’s streaming. And streaming platforms have so many bad shows. They could and should have canceled so many before my Julie and Billy. So many shows:
No more TV shows about the future where everyone is white. Unless your future has a huge genocide timeline, it does not make any sense and I’m sick of it.
It feels 100% like House, but it isn’t good.
Offensive to the Romani people. Worse still, Isabella Rosselini’s presence means I can’t stop watching it!
Too edgy for your mom. Too boring for your friends.
This is a show.
Master of None
I have a deep and powerful love / hate relationship with Master of None. Because when it is good, I love it. But when it’s hours of him just kind of hanging out with a hot Italian girl, Master of None is as masturbatory as Aziz Ansari’s pal, Louis CK.
Hey, what if Girls was written by someone who doesn’t understand women at all?
“Rep. Lewis. You are a great person. But Dr. King didn’t give in to his anger or his hurt. That is how he accomplished & won Civil Rights.” -Rob Schneider, Chief Running Mouth in Adam Sandler’s Bed Time Stories, 2008
F is for Family
Hey what is The Simpsons wasn’t funny?
Stop rebooting cult stuff
Gilmore Girls, Arrested Development, the Wet Hot American Summer cinematic universe. It never works.
Will Arnett should only star in one of your shows at a time and I like him better as a cartoon horse.
Podcasts should stay podcasts.
Mozart in the Jungle
This show is in its third season. Have you seen it?
This is a show. Dennis Quaid is in it. I think Fortitude is the name of the town.
This show is about a teenage doctor who is pretending to be a 35-year-old divorcee. Okay, no it’s not, but can you tell me what is about? Because it might be about a hot uncle.
Amazon Prime also has a show called Betas and honestly, I have no idea if these two are related in anyway.
Crisis in 6 Scenes
What more do I need to say?
