Fall Lineup

Walking dead

Within the first five minutes of the premiere of American Horror Story, there was barfing in a trash can. Two-headed women will do that.

In the second episode of the new season of Walking Dead a priest barfed after being saved from walkers who’d cornered him on a tall rock.

There has been no vomiting on Homeland that I’m aware of, but there has been drunken sex with an attractive and (not but) fat landlady that upset many Rupert Friend fans, as well a seduction of a Muslim teen virgin by a mid-30s new mom. Wow. I'm paying attention to this show again. (And jeez, internet commenters, neither scene was a rape. Yes, I'm now a rape culture apologist.)

I liked the look of the actress playing Ben Affleck’s twin and co-bar-owner in Gone Girl, not old or young but comfortable, then realized it’s the same woman, Carrie Coon, who plays Nora in The Leftovers, arguably the show's best character.  Ben Affleck is my age, 42, while Carrie Coon is nine years younger, very odd for a sibling born within a timeframe of minutes. It is no longer enough to simply cast younger female love interests or  make impossibly aged moms out of women.

My ex’s (have I ever used that term before? It doesn't roll off the keypad exactly) teenage daughter that he’s never met and imagines no one knows about plays a minor character on the first three episodes of Transparent. I'm still parsing this two weeks later.
