"Another hit," OP?

As much as I like Paul Rudd, I can't stand Will Ferrell.

I have experience with therapists. Most of them are out of their minds.

I don't believe it's mentally healthy to be around crazy people for all of your career. At least you must have one hell of hobby to counteract all that toxic mental poison poisoning your brain.

r4 Most therapists arent around crazy people all the time. The more time rolls on, the more therapy is used by anyone who benefits from having 1 hour per week to focus on discussing their lives, career, and relationships. Many people dump this stuff off on friends or keep it to themselves. Friends aren't trained how to spot unhealthy patterns, suggest boundaries, or strategies for dealing with the craziest people in our lives.
For example, I know a young woman whose parents both have undiagnosed personality disorders. Luckily, she's even tempered and has mostly healthy relationships, including a strong marriage and she's a good mother. But she could use therapy just to learn how to deal with her parents and it would probably help her marriage as well because she grew up around extreme behaviors and thought it was normal and the relationship with those parents continues to cause stress to her, her husband, and sometimes their young kids.

Is this what kept Paul Rudd away from Halloween Kills? If so, lucky him.

I've always thought that a very large number of people who become interested in psychology and become therapists do so in order to deal with their own issues.
It's not so much the poison of patients seeping through so much as it is their own crazy coming out as their work allows them to justify themselves with "at least I'm not as nutty as patient x."

Isn't this basically the Brian Wilson story?

Will Ferrell is talent free and his presence will insure it bombs.

Will Ferrell has his moments, R13, and he looks good in this.

Agreed, R14. I have a soft spot for “Elf”.
And I really liked “Ted Lasso”. It was a fun show, and there’s some cute guys featured.

I loved Ted Lasso and Mythic Quest, and just started The Morning Show, which I really like. So maybe OP isn’t far off.

Apple has a lot of misses, but the hits are great. Ted, Dickenson, The Morning Show (not great, but really entertaining), the Cecily Strong musical.

What are the misses, R17?

I tried watching the Joseph Gordon Levitt show and couldn't get through more than 2 episodes. There's a great, shocking moment where he says something nasty to a hookup when they argue after he can't get an erection. But other than that, its kinda dull.
If anyone has seen it, what is the fun stuff about this show? Does he have a lot of sex or get naked a lot?

Watching the first episode now. So far I like it.

I've watched the first ep so far... and it's not grabbing me.
It was a creative decision, obviously, but why does everyone look so hideous in the 80s styles? Rudd, Ferrell, and Hahn didn't have to look THAT bad.

I was interested at first, but they lost me by the end of the (short) episode. I’m going to cancel my Apple+ once The Morning Show trainwreck ends.

I hate Will Ferrell. He's not funny in the least. Hard Pass.

I think he’s funny and charming in this, R26.
Just watched the new episode and it’s certainly holding my interest.

As in his role, R29. It fits him. He’s playing it well.

Will Farrell gets on my nerves but the clip seems to show him playing the character and not the balcony.
Farrell seems to fancy himself the Chevy Chase of his generation and as much as "Vacation" is brilliant, that is not a role model I respect.
