Today we say goodbye to two groundbreaking and sometimes deeply weird shows, Atlanta and The Good Fight, which this New York Times article argues had more in common than you might have thought — namely by employing surrealism to explore our increasingly surreal times.
Here, the A.V. Club describes how Atlanta opened the door for other shows about underrepresented groups, like Ramy, Reservation Dogs, Mo, Sherman’s Showcase, and others.
The Ringer raves that Atlanta was Donald Glover’s “masterwork,” though I think he still has a few years in him to do something else. I can’t wait to see what he does next.
If you don’t care about spoilers: here’s an interview with The Good Fight‘s creators, Michelle and Robert King on the series finale.
In far less high-minded news, let’s talk about that Love is Blind finale/reunion, RIGHT?
Before we get started, ladies, I need you all to LISTEN HARD TO THIS MAN:
Women stop giving it to men that call you ugly challenge. #LoveIsBlind
OK, so Love is Blind. If you haven’t watched yet, we are going to get into some SPOILERS, so tread carefully.
Here, Raven talks about her future with SK, Bartiste’s “smokeshow” comment, her relationship with Nancy, and her own redemption arc. I have to say: I genuinely didn’t think she really liked SK when they came out of the pods, but by the end, I was convinced this woman was in love. Let’s hope it works out for both of them.
As for the couple who truly did not like each other: Cole and Zanab … she has no regrets, AND NOR SHOULD SHE. This man was low-key racist, insulting, and outright cruel at times. Zanab was at times passive-aggressive and naggy, but if I were trapped living with that toddler for two weeks, I would be too.
That said, the cut “cuties” scene that the producers included at the end of the reunion … people are torn as to who it vindicates. I personally think it shows that Zanab was being a little hypersensitive, but at the same time I do not blame her AFTER HER FIANCE HAD TOLD HER TO HER FACE THAT HE FOUND ANOTHER WOMAN MORE ATTRACTIVE.
Oh, and Bartiste can fuck all the way off. He did not get nearly enough abuse in that reunion.
In conclusion, go watch this show, it’s pure trash and it will make you feel much better about your own relationships.
Rainn Wilson has changed his name to Rainnfall Heat Wave Extreme Winter Wilson to protest climate change. I mean, I guess.
Join me @ @ArcticBasecamp in bringing attention to the melting issue. We need world leaders to take action at COP 27!
The Arctic is melting at Millions of Liters per second, yet this problem can’t seem to make a name for itself, so we’ll make a name for it.

Despite all that pearl-clutching ahead of the fifth season, Variety argues The Crown is actually a love letter to the royals that makes Diana out to be “unmoored, reckless and even selfish.” Huh!
Anya Taylor-Joy was offered a Disney pilot on the same day she was offered her role in The Witch. She chose wisely.
House of the Dragon will be making its way to the official Game of Thrones Convention next month, with appearances by King Viserys, the Sea Snake, and Larys “Clubfoot” Strong.
Here’s a list of characters who could make an appearance on House of the Dragon next season. I’m most excited about Nettles, myself.
Reportedly some Saturday Night Live writers are boycotting the Dave Chappelle episode, but Dave Chappelle is all, “nuh-uh.”
The upcoming Dragon’s Lair series on Netflix will be interactive. Y’all, I remember when Dragon’s Lair the arcade game was released, and it was a BIG DEAL.
Steven Spielberg thought Warner Bros. releasing big-budget films on HBO Max was some bullshit. Shocked. I’m shocked, I tell ya.
Jeopardy! paid tribute to Alex Trebek this week with an entire category devoted to trivia about him.
It’s been a few days, but here’s another goddamned Matthew Perry story for you.
We’re still ankle-deep in these goddamned election results and will be for a few more days (not to mention a Georgia runoff), and the networks have very different takes on what happened to the GOP.

Whereas Fox News is real mad at single women and young voters:
Fox's Jesse Watters: "… But single women and voters under 40 have been captured by Democrats. So we need these ladies to get married. And it's time to fall in love and just settle down. Guys, go put a ring on it." pic.twitter.com/cv70BxM47S

Speaking of future House of the Dragon characters – any chance the showrunners will add a storyline or at least an appearance for good ol’ Melisandre?
The actress who plays Melisandre has said that she is game, but I haven’t seen any suggestions from the showrunners (or from the text that the show is based on) that they have any plans for her. I’m all for it!
