  1. I think this is the first time I’ve seen Mad as Hell be rated PG instead of its usual M rating. Certainly shows that it was a more tame episode this time with the current government not giving them as much content to satirize, but they still did an excellent job.

  2. I watched the whole double ep of ‘Ghosts’, but won’t be back-was very unfunny and predictable-I like Rose McIver from ‘Once Upon A Time’ and ‘Masters Of Sex’, but that was awful…
