If you know anything about me you know that I am enthralled with the concept of “love” and how that manifests can be from rooting for two celebrities to be together (Niley forever) or in my consumption of romcoms. So going into the series I was intrigued by the protagonist being not only a man but a fellow lover of the genre as well. I do wanna say that not every male who enjoys romantic movies including romantic comedies are secretly stalkers who obsess over strangers but within seeing the first episode I felt it did a great job of building up who Joe is and why he has his worldview.
This week I saw Adam McKay’s film VICE. Most known for his comedy classics Step Brothers, Anchorman & Talledega Nights he’s recently made a shift to bring his style to more serious topics. His film The Big Short earned him an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. This showed he could succeed out a Will Ferrell lead project and he’s continue to expand with his most recent film looking at Bush’s right hand man, Dick Cheney.
The NCAA would have to take a serious look at the lie that is ‘student-athlete’ and find ways to properly compensate these players who risk injury while biding their time. Let’s hope change truly comes because right now these players are getting screwed. And they truly need to be properly compensated for there talents and by that I mean receiving percentages of those billion dollar March Madness and hundred million dollar apparel deals.

It only takes one. One hit and all is forgiven. One hit and those who forgot your genius will come rushing back. I've seen this happen in music. Chris Brown had a domestic dispute with Rihanna in 2009 and happened to be in jail when his biggest hit, Loyal dominated the airwaves but Team Breezy … Continue reading And We Back – Spike Lee’s Return to Prominence
Welcome to Second Dinner, a 3 person podcast where we talk about TV, movies, recent events & honestly whatever’s in our head https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/second-dinner/id1408791919?mt=2 https://soundcloud.com/seconddinner/second-dinner-the-michael-crichton-episode
Unlike HIMYM where Ted pines over Robin then when he finally gets her we see why and the series shows over again why they shouldn’t work out but then retcon the series to put them together again in the finale.
Or the original where Ross and Rachel pioneered the “will they, won’t they” story in network television.
This show just brings in new characters for Jonah and Amy to be with but the difference is there’s no foundation of the relationship other than friendship.
Their timing is never right and even when they’re given ways to get out of their relationships *cough Jonah cough* they chose to never risk it even with the prospect of love.
