Never seen it, but this makes me want to watch it. If Adam McKay stopped fellating himself his work would be much better.

The first episode of the Rehearsal is horsefeathering amazing. The Chinese gunpowder line had me crying.

Has anyone been watching The Captain? I haven't found it to be all that interesting. It's like The Last Dance, but without the compelling stories or characters. My biggest takeaway so far, which should come as no surprise, is that Roger Clemens is a real asshat.

Derek Jeter remains the most overrated MLB player in history, there's just not a lot to say about him. He was basically Roberto Alomar with way better marketing and lucked into a spot on a team that stacked the deck against the league for 10 years.

This is exactly it. Jeter is just such a boring person. If it had been one 90 minute doc I might have watched. But I have no desire to watch 6 episodes on Jeter.

There's a quarterly meeting or something tomorrow, and there's a lot of speculation that they could cancel a huge number of HBO Max scripted shows. Twitter is losing its mind about whether they'll pull the plug on Our Flag Means Death.

I’ve only seen one commercial for it, but it was a bunch of writers talking about how boring Jeter was, followed by a cut to Jeter who grins and says “heh … I was boring ON PURPOSE.” Sounds real compelling

I have now watched the first 3 episodes of The Rehearsal. I have no idea what I have watched.
