@ParraV Yeah, mostly "when can I see the other 50 episodes. Would next week work?"Misread this as "sister of former Princess Margaret," and I was worried for Brenda. https://t.co/lUcmwgVlqWMike Pence's new neighbors put up #LGBTQ Pride flags in protest https://t.co/syoW7o0j1f via @CNN https://t.co/e7Ud1RoGjv

@jdickerson Sorry for your loss, John. Thinking about grace. @AhmedTVJunkie @Hanhonymous @TheFienPrint @lizlet @tvoti I'm guessing because they think it'll be on Top 10 lists. (It'll be on mine!)What are the Best Overlooked Shows of the Year? @TheFienPrint @junethomas @lizlet @tvoti weigh in… https://t.co/IC55uSgSbI

@TheFienPrint "That I watched this weekend," of course. @GailPennington I did, too!Best musical in a recent TV show: Gilmore Girls' or Insecure's?Some things by me on Almodóvar: https://t.co/Qj9FPY7NVW, https://t.co/8xIEWQSfEz, https://t.co/khpc9xuiAb, https://t.co/OMxqzq0eGUAnd this is very true: "His movies are now far less Spanish, just as Spain is far less Spanish."Loved D.T. Max's New Yorker profile of Pedro Almodóvar https://t.co/vS1ktWgvQ2 So many joyas scattered throughout. @G_Whitney_Leigh We already picked topics--had to do so early this week--but perhaps for next show if others don't grab.I like the superquirky quirkfest that is Stars Hollow more than Willa, but otherwise ... yup!Glad I watched new Gilmore Girls eps before reading @willapaskin's great review: https://t.co/Zsrm26Ia8L

@tsouldani @Metlandia @thehighsign It was a simpler time. A time of hope and happiness. @DundasKeele I don't get the impression Peter Morgan is a Tory. Though I'm not sure. @DundasKeele They definitely downplay Atlee and Labour, but partly because Churchill is the fifth big character this season. He's known. @DundasKeele Yeah, mos def. Quite a satisfying bit of royalist propaganda, though. @DundasKeele Queen Mary. It's quality trashy TV. Princess Margaret is ace.

@G_Whitney_Leigh (I put "cable" in scare quotes, because it's not quite cable. But still, not the main channels anymore.) @G_Whitney_Leigh When I was a kid, there were tons of US shows on UK TV. Now they're all on "cable" channels and get less exposure. It's odd @G_Whitney_Leigh They have a lot of the shows I like, but for some reason I resisted signing up! @bloomerj I saw first ep in UK. Needles to say, he didn't do a lot in that one!

@katelinnea Ugh, sorry, that really was a spoiler, albeit from a few weeks ago. @katelinnea Madam Secretary had a woman winning the presidency ... in Mozambique. Everyone high-fives and ate donuts. @msnoellesly "He's tremendous in very few clothes, by the way."Are we sure it's not Jamie Dornan that Trump's considering for Treasury? @GailPennington But I prefer the Spanish version to the French! (But yes, one of my friends already asked me about beads.)Someone on this train is either drinking anis or eating aniseed balls. Either way, I want in.

@hyperbolise And there's a free trial period. @hyperbolise I only recently signed up and have been watching it pretty much nonstop since. I'd say worth it for a while at least. @hyperbolise I've been watching a great Aussie show called Janet King--I think you'd like--on Acorn TV. @willcwhite It's mostly a problem of Netflix's all-at-once release schedule not being podcast-friendly. @stevensonseth & I are bereft. @hyperbolise I keep starting it and losing interest, though I love him. I think a new series of Scott & Bailey got added to Hulu today.

@EricBMarcus Can't wait to listen. @authenticpaint @TheAdvocateMag No arguments!I talked with Pedro Almodóvar about his career and his new movie, Julieta: https://t.co/Qj9FPY7NVW @authenticpaint @TheAdvocateMag It sure was, though Javier Cámara's character was partially intended as comic relief. @Jesselansner AGREE!On @SlateCultFest we talked The Crown, Loving, and @MakingGayHistry: https://t.co/decrIZnXF0 @G_Whitney_Leigh It's a (nice) department store chain, and their Christmas ad is an inexplicably big deal.
