Is this comic related? No.
Is this my blog and can i do what i want? Yes.
Just watched all available episodes of this in 2 sittings and it was SOOOOO good. I only found out about its existence yesterday because i saw a gif on tumblr.com. There’s 9 episodes in season 1 and 2 specials (including a quarantine special which was phenomenal). And currently 2 episodes of season 2 to watch.
Episode 5 (A Dark Quiet Death) and 10 (Quarantine) were both directed by Rob and they were 2 of the best episodes of TV i’ve seen in a long time. Quarantine had me shedding an unmanly tear.
TBH i don’t think the trailer does it justice.
Check it oooooot

I’m pretty sure it’s been pointed out before about the balding Gollum vision board behind them and how obviously the Sunny Make-up Department used this for inspiration re. Dennis in s14. (Sorry, I can’t find that post. If someone made that and wants me to credit them for that discovery, I will. Please just send the link.)
EDIT: pizzashakes made this discovery and kindly sent me the link! You all should check it out, it’s a great find. Also you can see the vision board way clearer there.
Anyway, do you think they are going to continue with this look for Dennis in s15? Part of me thinks it’s an interesting idea (”That’s what his soul looks like”, etc.) But then maybe Waiting for Big Mo was the conclusion of it?
Like, I don’t know if I 100% got that episode… but it clearly alluded to Dennis actually kinda being Gollum-like in his obsessive pursuit of “staying on top of the leaderboard and winning at the game” at the expense of actually enjoying his life. It concluded with him and the others seemingly understanding that they have to let go of this compulsive need to control everything and just try to live more freely and in the moment.
(Although it was also likely a reference to the creators and granting themselves the freedom to pursue their other projects. It also randomly turned into a psych-out about rcg ending Sunny, which they then made clear that they absolutely don’t intend to do. So yeah.. again not 100% sure if I added all the meta references together smoothly. I personally found it all to be a little bit jumbled.)
Nevertheless, my general take-away character-wise was that Dennis worked through some of his control issues with the support of Charlie and the others. He seemed in a better headspace by the end. S14 was him at his lowest in terms of physical appearance. And rcg clearly intended the audience to see that as a manifestation of his internal state as well.
I’m interested to see what Dennis looks like in s15. Is he going to look better / more like normal Glenn? Because part of me feels they didn’t fully complete that arc. Like, Dennis still has so many issues to deal with before he resolves anything about his identity or the way he lives his life (at least in my eyes).
But if you look on other sites like reddit, a lot of people didn’t even seem to link Dennis’ change in weight/physical appearance with a deliberate creative choice. I feel the general audience understood that Rob gained weight for s7 as a deliberate acting choice and in service to the show. I’m not so sure the general audience wholly understood that Glenn lost weight and was made-up to look quite sickly on purpose. And if they did note it, I’m not sure everyone understood exactly why… y’know?
Anyway, I’m interested to see where they go with Dennis in s15!!

Mythic Quest: Titans’ Rift & Grouchy Goat
I love the sleight of hand that Mythic Quest has managed to pull off. They pulled in all the It’s Sunny in Philadelphia viewers with the premise of Rob McElhenney being the titular character, but he’s not. He’s the catalyst and the inciting event on the show and in individual episodes, but the story revolves around Charlotte Nicado’s Poppy.
Season 1 revolved around her trying to make the looming…
