notes on the death of the network sitcom.

was somewhat skeptical prior to watching outlander, a fantasy romance period drama set in 18th century scotland. but i was pleasantly surprised. the conceit is that a woman from post ww2 england gets cast back in time via a pagan henge-like portal and must navigate her way through an alien society and all the pitfalls it presents while trying to make her way back to her future existence. could be pretty hokey especially if they lard on the romance but they manage to keep that mostly on the back burner. its no game of thrones but agreeable enough to binge through in a couple of days. and while there are only eight episodes at present, there are eight more in the spring and another thirteen already on order after that. oh, its on starz for starters.

Scorsese produced Grateful Dead documentary.

there isnt a new sitcom this fall that has made any impact but i finally got around to the fx show youre the worst that aired this summer and i am giving it my trademarked two thumbs up. dont believe me? then listen to what this professional tv watching person has to say and then just ignore us both.

torturous timbers match tonight with 22 shot on goal but no score. and we missed the wedding which happened two sections over. we were a bit too close to the timbers army and after the ref didn't call a handball against the other team at the end, ryley and his buddy got caught in a beer shower.
