tom really was god-mode this ep

from his reaction to shiv's news (and that she'd known for a week), to the greg principles scene, to peach, to the dinner where he finally (kinda) snaps "fuck off shiv"

i really appreciate that this show hasn't gone the gratuitous nudity and violence route you might expect from an HBO show in 2019.

All the admins at my office are talking about it this season so it seems like it stands a good chance of becoming HBOs NEXT BIG THING, which is pretty funny given how modest it is conceptually and budgetarily compared to shit like Westworld and Watchmen and Golden Compass that appear to be being positioned as flagship HBO fare.

I mean this is basically the Iannucci format translated to an hour-long drama so gratuitous sex would just feel weird

The most lewd things on this show so far have been Roman wiping his cum off his office window and Tom telling everyone he swallowed his own load, lol

no i know it would be totally weird.

i guess i stated that wrong.

i think its cool/satisfying that something witty and thoughful is emerging as the sleeper Next Big HBO Show. rather than the kind of thing HBO usually puts its weight behind.

The only corner of my life where anybody watches or talks about Westworld is here on the board. It's so dumb that it's gone full circle into being Too Much for normal people to digest.

I don't really know these actors from anything else, are they this good in other things? I think they're all so great in their roles

J. Cameron-Smith was on Rectify, which is about as opposite from this show as you can get and probably one of my favorite shows ever.

Ohhh I was trying to remember. Also Roman's girlfriend is in Rectify too as the annoying manic pixie dream girl artist in the last season haha.

did anyone else catch the headlines on the screen behind roman when he and kendall first went to visit with lawrence at vaulter?

one of them said something like "ARE ALL TAYLOR SWIFT SONGS REALLY MARXIST?" and another was like "WHY DRINKING MILK ON THE TOILET MIGHT BE A TOTAL GAME-CHANGER" and there were two or three others i couldn't fully make out, but i totally lost track of the scene's dialogue as i was cracking up trying to read them :lol:
