We need Sam Pang and Glenn Robbins on it next year. Also surprised Angie Kent’s not on it. She’s been on every other show
There's been more than one season?
Yeah this is Season 2. Big Dell was on it last year

So I got to the end of Schitt’s Creek. And I’m sad, but it was probably the correct call ending it there. Didn’t outstay the welcome.

Fun fact about Schitts Creek. They spent a significant amount of their budget, almost 80%, on wardrobe.

Dan Levy made a conscious decision to do this, because he felt fans passionate about fashion would be able to pick out whether the characters were wearing knock offs

I wasn't replying, but I was making snarky remarks from Casa Del Fui.
24hrs later, Mrs Fui is still asking what a Botman is

I reckon the Puppet is Sam Moran, the guy who replaced the Yellow Wiggle. The clue about his best friend being over 1,000 years old - His wife played Dorothy

Season 2 of The Boys has kicked off on Amazon with first 3 episodes landing on Friday. Picks up right where it left off and things start cranking up a notch. Great viewing and looking forward to the rest.

Yeah I’ve seen it’s up now. Debating whether to watch now, or wait until they’re all up and binge it

I just watched "The Social Dilemma" on Netflix.

It is sort of scary. Over dramatised? Perhaps. Perhaps not.

It certainly helps explain why extremist groups like antivaxers and even people like flat earthers get such a hold.

Look the movie is fine. On some level it's just good to see the story up on the big screen.

Seven Emmy Awards for Schitt's Creek... they've won every award so far, an hour in. Great to see, I loved the show. Nine all up, given the minor categories announced beforehand.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

My day was made when I heard that today. I loved the show also. Never felt proud of a show being successful as much as this one
