Loved season 1 of Sneaky Pete and tolerated season 2, but can't recommend the show anymore. The level of ridiculousness in season 3 is off the charts.
I’m glad we don’t have to hear about the so-called Seinfeld “curse” anymore. In reality, it’s gotta be really difficult to get out of the shadow of such a well known character from such a massive show. She pulled it off.Veep has been really good for a long while, but I’m now happy to see it end. Last night’s episode was the first time I’ve ever seen JL-D as “unlikeable.” And I have a crush on her. I just want it to end so that she can (hopefully) begin another great series.
She really is amazing. She did it with Veep, but also with The New Adventures of Old Christine. She's like Mary Tyler Moore to me. MTM did Dick Van Dyke and then her own show, and in each, she looked exactly the same, but just was such a different person even without 'acting' like a new character. She was just organically 'other.' Same with Julia. I still binge Seinfeld, and recently found Christine online and i'm into Veep, and i just see such different people, but all effortlessly, without anything to hide behind. I love how she has very small, subtle character habits in each, and they don't follow her from character to character. And then i watch Pacino and constantly notice little things that he always does, no matter what kind of character he's playing. She gets some credit, but maybe not enough, possibly because her characters aren't 'large' and loud?I’m glad we don’t have to hear about the so-called Seinfeld “curse” anymore.

Ha. I will watch on your recommendation. I like Christina Applegate(?) from her post Married Wiith Children stuff.oh crap, that's right! I never made the connection watching her on Bloodline and I actually watched Freaks and Greeks the year it aired. I was also a letter writer trying to save the show too. Mind blown!
it's a show with female leads and how their lives can go awry due to the dudes they hook up with. I don't watch lifetime so I can't comment on any perceived connection. I thought the plot was well written and directed.Dead to Me started off alright, but then took on a very Lifetime movie vibe (no offense intended, ladies!).
