"Another hit," OP?

by Anonymousreply 1October 12, 2021 7:18 PM

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.

It’s premiering next week Nov. 12th

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?

I doubt that was the first, R11.

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

by Anonymousreply 13November 9, 2021 8:16 AM

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

by Anonymousreply 14November 9, 2021 2:06 PM

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.

by Anonymousreply 15November 9, 2021 6:23 PM

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.

by Anonymousreply 17November 9, 2021 7:38 PM

What are the misses, R17?

by Anonymousreply 18November 9, 2021 11:29 PM

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?

by Anonymousreply 19November 10, 2021 10:32 PM

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

by Anonymousreply 20November 17, 2021 10:38 PM

Pity Rudd has never shown his sexy bits

by Anonymousreply 21November 17, 2021 10:42 PM

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.

This show sounds like an inverse WHAT ABOUT BOB?

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.

The fuck, they make you wait between episodes?

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

by Anonymousreply 26November 18, 2021 1:40 AM

I think he’s funny and charming in this, R26.

Just watched the new episode and it’s certainly holding my interest.

what era is it supposed to be set in?

What do you mean "looks good"?

by Anonymousreply 29November 20, 2021 1:26 AM

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

by Anonymousreply 30November 20, 2021 2:43 PM

THEN you should have said looks right not looks good.

R31, have some coffee and relax. Life is too short to be so persnickety over something so inane.

Coffee makes me jittery. Bad advice.

R33, ok, bourbon it is.

^ ah, a bourbon man

by Anonymousreply 35November 20, 2021 3:06 PM

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.

by Anonymousreply 36November 20, 2021 3:07 PM

R35, bourbon cures all ills.

Bourbon with eggnog if you’re feeling festive.

This show is so joyless.
