Anyone watching Hollywood?

I have an allergy to Jim Parsons. The show however does look like it'd be a guilty pleasure!

I've seen it pop up on Netflix but haven't watched it. Is it any good?



Signature goes here!

what's wrong with Jim Parsons? He's a talented actor. I guess a lot of people hate Sheldon Cooper, but that's no reason to hate the actor.

The show is so bad that I hate it and everyone associated with it.

It definitely feels like a Ryan Murphy show but at the same time not quite as desperate as some of his offerings. I like the cast (I'm also not a huge Jim Parsons fan either and he is by far the most frustrating part of the show). 

It definitely has the old hollywood feel to it and it has a lot of gay content in it compared to most Netflix originals.

It does become difficult to disassociate an actor from their pieces of work after they have played them for so long. I'm trying not to let it affect how I feel towards him but this show isn't helping that. XD

You know who have sex with same sex? Animals @@..but maybe this is a sign that gay is normal and not against common sense? Well only if you consider your self as an animal.

Meow!



Speaking of everything that's being said here, I will now talk more about my cartoons. Here's showrunner Noelle Stevenson cryptically hinting stuff about She-Ra season 5 recently. In particular I would highlight...

“Her [Catra's] unwillingness to be vulnerable around anyone else, or ask for help, or lean on anyone else for support, finished her off long before any of the other factors,” Stevenson says. “She was all alone and had nobody to talk to, nobody to lean on — and would not let herself lean on anybody thinking of it as a weakness. Part of her arc is figuring out again, potentially, how to do that.”

...sounds like a Catra redemption arc to me. "Potentially." This prospect makes me YaY!

What's so bad about it? Everything people say is bad about it is just as bad about virtually every other sitcom in existence. Laugh tracks are bad, but it's not exclusive to that show (They're atrocious everywhere). The characters are actually a lot better written and nuanced than like, 95% of all other characters despite them still being cliches. the writing, while not Futurama or Rick and morty level clever, is far smarter than most other 'nerdy' sitcoms. 

I don't like the 'it's popular so it's good' argument, but there's a reason it was so successful for so long. It is actually a good show and head and shoulders above most sitcoms, it just falls under the same trappings as most others in the genre. I'd rather watch The Big Bang Theory than How I met your Mother or Friends any day.

We are all animals, some of us more than others. I, for example, am a furry! (kinda). but in all seriousness, I kinda want to have a moment to actually dissect everything Joker there was trying to say, because a lot of what he said IS a pretty common talking point among bigots and homophobes and generally uneducated people.

Eh... Not sure if this is the right place, but the characters are cliche and the jokes can be seen from a mile away.  It's not a "nerdy" sitcom in the sense of Futurama or Rick and Morty where they're actually dealing with interesting ideas.  It's just basic situations, and they throw in a nerdy reference here and there.  And most of the characters are just grating.  Maybe it's better than How I Met Your Mother or Friends, but that's a pretty low bar.
