I thought his problem was alcohol, which led to him being thrown out of college.In the first season Lip was supposed to be a genius even Ace'ing his SATs. I guess that shows what smoking and drugs will do!
Yea I probably should have added ... to the list.I thought his problem was alcohol, which led to him being thrown out of college.
The writers want to have it both ways. These kids are poor but whip smart and sexy as hell.
Yet they can't get too successful or else they leave the hood and maybe lift the whole family out of poverty. It's kind of like the TWD trap. They can't have character or story development which leads to the end of the show.
They're in season 9 or 10 and they want to keep going, keep cashing those checks.
I've got a bit under a year left on my HBO / Showtime / STARZ package at $15 total a month .. I've about decided, when that deal is over, unless I can get it again, I'll cancel all three .. if a person can wait until entire Seasons of whatever it is they want to watch fully drop, then take a month streaming and binge it out for 30 days, cancel and wait a year until the new hits .. movies that they all carry either have no interest for me or I probably have already rented the ones that do ..I'm thinking of dropping Showtime after Homeland ends. I also think that the premium cable channel era is over too. Who needs them with the streaming options? (And I actually get Showtime streaming).
I at one time was paying over $300 a month for cable, phone and internet. With the streaming currently available I am under $100 for all three. I don't even need a DVR at all anymore because all the content I watch is available for at least a month and usually the entire series commercial free. Turning on and off subscription like Showtime is one click on their website as Hulu hosts them as well as Amazon prime. I would never go back to cable. It does require a no cap ISP that I do have although it is rather slow by todays standards at 12Gb it is fast enough for two streams with no issue. 4K is a problem but my only other choice would more then triple my ISP cost that I am not willing to do.Cable TV companies make it a hassle to turn on and off premium channel subscriptions so I just let it go.
Most of the time there is something I'll watch.
HBO is definitely expanding original programming. Presumably Showtime will expand as well, because they have no choice.
They haven't quite hit on something as big as some of the HBO shows, though Homeland had buzz the first coupe of seasons.
That's awesome!BTW, the actress who plays Svetlana is in the second season of Condor. Actually speaks Russian dialog in several scenes.
