One Mississippi: Two Mississippi  Season 2, Ep 0

Season two of Tig Notaro's Amazon series takes us deeper into the lives of Tig's step-father, Bill, and her brother, Remy. Meanwhile, Tig continues to speak honestly on her radio show as Tig and Kate's relationship perpetually redefines itself. Politics come into play, and a Mississippi changed by the election of Trump hangs grotesquely in the background. Also, trigger warning. Very upsetting but necessary discussions of molestation, abuse, and harassment, including scenes of deplorable men being deplorable, also occur this season. And in spite of all that, the show continues to be a funny, even joyous celebration of love and compassion. [more inside]

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Gerrymandering  Season 4, Ep 8

So, recently?
  • Gorsuch appointed to Supreme Court via the "nuclear option," Devin Nunez recuses himself from investigating Trump as he himself is comes under an ethics investigation, and Thursday: Trump launches missiles at a Syrian airfield on very short notice and without apparent strategy while Brian Williams sings rhaposodies about their beauty. It's an act that, like so many of Trump's other acts, he tweeted against when Obama did it.
  • Bill O'Reilly hit by revelations that he settled multiple sexual harrasment suits totalling 15 million dollars over the years, leading to around 60 advertisers pulling ads from his show, but somehow a defense from Donald Trump. Sensing an opportunity, LWT pushed to fill some of the vacated time with their Catheter Cowboy, who will hopefully soon be telling Trump: "You're blowing this. You're sacrificing the chance to make society a better place on the altar of your towering ignorance and your fragile ego. YOU ARE BLOWING THIS."
  • Main story: The gigantic problem of gerrymandering, mostly from Republicans, but from some Democrats too, as well as the difficulties with redrawing districts fairly and intelligently. YouTube (20m)
