  1. The Offical Cheers and Frasier Thread

    They both hold up very well. The second season finale of Cheers is a Hall of Famer.
  2. Roseanne Barr

    Jokes depend on context. Roseanne used an age old racist trope specifically meant to dehumanize black people by comparing them to animals. There’s not a lot of grey area, at least I don’t see it.

    This ^^^ And again, freedom of speech does not mean ‘speech free of consequence’.
  4. Films you feel get an unfair rap

    I went to a screening of it in NY a couple of years ago where Verhoeven was interviewed. He basically admitted to the fact that Berkley wasn’t in on the joke because he actively mislead her as to the way her performance was playing and the actual tone he was going for. The movie is enhanced by how batshit she is, it wouldn’t work if she was as tongue in cheek as everyone else, but they hung her out to dry when it was released.
  5. Films you feel get an unfair rap

    Showgirls is a godamn delight. If you can’t appreciate modern cinema’s finest exploitation director ostensibly remaking All About Eve in the most perverse way a studio in 1995 would allow, I weep for you. A decent take on it - https://www.google.com/amp/s/film.avclub.com/the-new-cult-canon-showgirls-1798214503/amp
  6. Disagree. So far season 2 is infinitely more interesting, ambitious and engaging, IMO. I was so generally underwhelmed with S1, I considered ditching it.
  7. Roseanne Barr

    Thats certainly true, however what was being referenced is that some are trying to draw an equivalency between Maher comparing Trump to an orangutan (and not being fired for it) and what Roseanne tweeted. One of these things is not like the other. At all. (Now some nitwit is trying to defend her on Don Lemmon’s show by dragging Jay Z and Eminem’s lyrics into it..) 😂
  8. Roseanne Barr

    She’s mentally ill. I’d guess the tweets were the result of being either over or under medicated. Or she seriously overestimated her standing with ABC while playing to the MAGA loons. Or both.
  9. Roseanne Barr

    And there’s zero racial connotations in the orangutan stuff. It’s just mean, if not accurate.
  10. Roseanne Barr

    ...it’s also not the equivalent of Maher, Sykes or anyone else calling Trump an orangutan, you willful simpletons (not directed at anyone in this thread). 😂
  11. Roseanne Barr

    Her comments weren’t ‘politically incorrect’ they were racist and libelous (re her tweet about George Soros). Free speech doesn’t mean speech without consequence and this isn’t an example of political correctness run amok.
  12. Roseanne Barr

    Cue the outrage segments from Fox furiously lamenting the destruction of free speech. They’ll play so well alongside their NFL protest coverage. I suspect Goodman and Metcalf’s reps made it clear they were walking before the plug was pulled. ABC didn’t cancel a hit show solely on moral grounds or for political reasons (which will be the Fox narrative). I really don’t know how to feel about Roseanne. She’s awful, obviously. But also clearly suffers from mental illness (IIRC she was very open about that in her heyday).
  13. Does Dariablue still post here?

  14. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    It was when they were touring, Dylan wasn’t witness to anything. I mentioned it to illustrate the hypocrisy of slut-shaming Stephanie,
