At least the G1 Climax starts on Saturday

Everything is terrible and nothing makes any sense any more. I don’t have to explain it to you, you’re a living human. Welp, at least we still have New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Climax to look forward to, right?

With a field of 20 wrestlers divided into two blocks and set to compete in a month-long series of grueling round robin matches — DA RULES: every wrestler in a block faces one another, two points for a win, one for a time-limit draw, zero for a loss, whoever has the most points in their block wrestles against their counterpart in the other block to crown a winner — the 30th iteration of the greatest tournament in professional wrestling begins on September 19. That’s this Saturday if specific dates no longer have any meaning to you. Tomorrow if days of the week are out the window too.

And now, a review of the “Mad About You” subway advertisement

The New York City subway system is lousy with advertisements. This is one of them:

Mad About You, a peak 90s television series that is getting a revival that I don’t think anyone truly asked for. (These things keep popping up, don’t they? What’s next, more “Dharma & Greg?” At least they didn’t call it “Madder About You.” Hopefully that “the old show but new” naming convention ended with Fuller House” and “Girl Meets World.” If not though, I anxiously await things like “4th Rock from the Sun,” “Caroline in the Suburbs,” and “Wings but everyone is having less fun because it’s set in an airport and we live in a post-9/11 world.”) Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt return as Paul and Jamie Buchman.

Very excited to watch “Mad About You” a new limited series event, exclusively on my premium cable channel Spectrum Originals, which I have because I’m a Pell Grant Recipient who started and operated a business in a disadvantaged community for three years.

Man, this would have been such a better post back in July when Kamala Harris announced her student loan debt plan. Remember that? Alas, we must play the hand we are dealt. Or in this case, we must make the outdated references we can think of when deciding to do something like write a review of something we see plastered up in a subway station that advertises a questionable TV show revival. Anyway…

Rating: 4.0 crippling student loan debt probably prevents many from subscribing to more than one — if any — streaming service, let alone pay for an entire cable package just to access Spectrum Originals, while on the other hand the people who loved this show when it was on the air in the 90s won’t understand how to access Spectrum Originals or even know they have it, so I ask, “who is the audience here?”/10

And now, a review of the “Terminator: Dark Fate” subway advertisement

The New York City subway system is lousy with advertisements. This is one of them:

Terminator: Dark Fate, somehow the sixth film in the Terminator film franchise. This iteration stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, a returning Linda Hamilton, and — naturally — Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Sansa Snark: Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 6

Previously on recapping Game of Thrones… I mean, it was certainly an episode of Game of Thrones. That’s about the only non-controversial thing that can be said about what was either a masterpiece or the biggest crock of shit ever aired on television. This week, Sansa Snark presents…

Season 8, Episode 6: The Iron Throne

Only ~3000 more words to go before we can close the book on Game of Thrones forever. Who is sitting on the Iron Throne? What was the deal with that horse from last week? Was the true “Game of Thrones” the friends we made along the way? Let’s not waste anymore time!
