What do y‘all recommend for TV? We just finished “Joe Pera Talks With You” & it‘s so wholesome & heart-warming that now nothing seems adequate.

monalyisha My favorite episodes are: “Joe Pera Takes You on a Fall Drive”, “Joe Pera Reads You the Church Announcements”, & “Joe Pera Helps You Write.” 1w
Patchshank I like Bob's Burgers. Gravity Falls is also a really cute show. I'm also a sucker for ghost reality shows. 1w
ljuliel That show is so cute and so different. He‘s like Mr Rogers for adults. ♥️ 1w
monalyisha @ljuliel That‘s what my husband kept saying! I love how the pace is so patient & slow (despite the episodes being just small, 10-15 minute blips); it really makes you slow down & take the time, too. 1w

I really wasn‘t planning on checking out any more books. I really have a problem, y‘all. #libraryhaul

Annl I don‘t see a problem. I do it all the time! What if a mood struck and you did not have a book to go with the mood? 😘 3mo

I saw Emily Nussbaum speak at #p&p and picked up a copy of her book. It was amazing. The book is full of essays, some of which were already published, but which go together really well. I always trust Nussbaum about tv and this book was charming.

Ways to catch me: start with a Buffy essay

I‘m not much of a television watcher these days - for some reason multi-episode stuff isn‘t doing it for me - but I do love criticism. I‘d read ~1/3 of Nussbaum‘s essays previously so I knew I would enjoy this book immensely. Some are reviews of a show‘s season or finale, some are more of a critical look back. Two essays are completely new - in my opinion, too few. I would have loved a better balance of older pieces and new cross-topic pieces.

I have *died* (from Emily Nussbaum‘s upcoming collection of TV criticism out in June, this essay is about The Good Wife). The quote says: “Recently, I had lunch with an entirely charming TV-maker, who was educated and intelligent about many forms of television but had never watched The Good Wife, because, he admitted with a shrug, he perceived it as being “for women.” Although he was a fantastic lunch companion, he‘s dead now.” 💀
