  1. I always enjoy the Lumps of Coal episodes because it either gives me something fun to watch that I missed or it affirms that I'm not the only person who liked something. I haven't seen D&D yet so that will be fun to discover; and I really loved What Happens Later even though I felt like it maybe wouldn't hold up for future viewing or scrutiny--just a perfect moment for the mood I was in at the time. I have a lot of affection for Meg Ryan, and I've been watching The X Files for the first time and so my love for David Duchovny is also at an all time high. It wasn't even what they said to each other but the way they just existed in each other's company that I loved so much.

    I strongly disliked Super Mario Bros in the theater aside from that Donkey Kong battle, but when I re-watched it with my nieces and nephew in October they all loved it and that brought me such joy that I could not hate it anymore. So Rob, your explanation made perfect sense and I think acknowledging this as primarily something for kids is helpful in framing expectations for those who have not seen it yet.
