    Giamatti and Pa Kent should have a speech off.

    Only one eating scene, when he’s about to fuck that judge over. Funny they showed clips for next week and they break out the S&M shit again, who fucking cares, I forgot about that angle.

    Also thought this was their best episode yet. At the very least it was their best episode not featuring the wisdom of James Hetfield.

    The framing device of flashing back from the funeral to fill in the gaps was really well done.

    One stupid part: would the three “all-stars” who defected really put all the startup capital in on one stock tip?

    Great Artie Bucco appearance on Vinyl this week. :lol:

    Those were some great scenes with him. I’d like more Lester Grimes as he and Romano are the only characters that are likeable. Cannavale isn’t just chewing scenery he’s inhaling it.

    After last week was so terrible and predictable, I thought this week was their best episode yet. Probably because it was the heaviest Ray Romano episode. Thought: the Elvis meeting went exactly like you expected it to. Did it really happen, or did Richie make it up as a cover story?

    I think it happened, did he tell Romano he was meeting or met with Elvis and the Colonel?  The one part that didn’t jibe for me or was just a stroke of luck for Richie was the girls being gone, if they’re still there the story about them being the ones taking the money doesn’t work.

    I thought that was really the only weak episode of 11-22-63.  The title cards destroyed any momentum and continually diffused any tension. His memory issues were so rushed and I didn’t give a shit.

    I think the character of Oswald that they have constructed is very weird and it works.  He’s very easy to hate.

    I assume Richie hired them as hookers. Like Charlie Sheen says, you don’t pay hookers to come over, you pay them to leave.

    Still, your point stands. If he did meet with Elvis for a while, how did he know the threesome would still be going on to get the money? Especially since Romano told him earlier that it would be really quick. :lol:

    Didn’t the one girl look at Richie’s wedding ring and say something like it’s just one night no one needs to know?  And the one chick provided blow by the pool.  No way hookers are doing that.  I think Richie told them they were in the music biz.

    Here’s the getting-himself-fired montage from this week’s “Better Call Saul”:

    Love the music choice. My brothers had that album:

    Hookers didn’t have blow in the 70’s? Well, my dreams are shattered. :lol:

    I think even in the faked aftermath, he says they we’re probably working girls.

    He definitely set it up so that Romano (whatever his character name is) finally had his threesome and didn’t fuck up the Elvis meet.

    Internet BCS theory I wish I thought of myself:

    Kim says she’s from a small town on the Nebraska/Kansas border.

    Maybe she goes back there, and that’s why Jimmy/Saul wants to work the Cinnabon in Omaha?

    I actually like Vinyl for the most part. Everyone I know disagrees with me. Glad at least a few people liked this week’s episode I was beginning to wonder what my problem was.

    I dunno about Richie hiring the girls I got a spur of the moment vibe to it with the money. And I think essentially that’s why he ordered the drink at the end he realized one urge/vice had just replaced the other anyways.

    I wouldn’t think hookers would provide the blow to their johns, it would be the other way around.  Just like they aren’t buying drinks, the johns are.  Who knows.

     

    I didn’t think Saul picked the destination, like Walter didn’t pick his.

    I thought Richie taking the dough was a reaction to blowing the Elvis situation.

    :lol: I love The Americans but I hope they don’t go in a direction where the kid gets on board with killing the pastor.  That would be a bit too much.

    Blew my mind to find out that Pastor Tim and Dollar Bill from Billions are the same guy.

    They’re both the most annoying guy on their show.

    It’s Always Sunny gets picked up for seasons 13 and 14. That’s nuts.

    I can’t fucking believe that. To steal a line from Adam Carolla, that show is fucked out. What I saw of the last season was pretty bad.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    It’s the second (or 3rd of you’re partial to early Simpsons) best comedy in TV history, they deserve some latitude. and Dennis Move to the Suburbs this season was amazing. Still great!

    It’s really hit or miss.

    Not nearly as consistent as it used to be, but it can still be hilarious at times.

    The Ski School parody one was also great this season.

    It’s probably still pretty cheap to make, too.

    11-22 was great. Really well done final episode.

    Anyone see any of Horace and Pete’s? It’s weird, slow and strange like Louie and Louis C.K. in general but also can be funny too.

    I like Billions, but it’s just so ridiculous that a public figure who’s so into blackmail and revenge like Giamatti’s character regularly goes into S&M clubs.

    Plus, it’s so hacky. Powerful guy needs to be dominated? Never seen that before!

    No eating this week, but he did mix up some dog food foam an unseen dog.

    Terrence Winter gone from Vinyl. Someone named Scott Burns replaces for season 2.
