THINGS I WILL AND WON'T BE WATCHING ON TV TONIGHT
- •WILL: SOUTH PARKMessy, not-completely-thought-out, gut-level, hilarious and honest comedy.
- •WILL: YOU'RE THE WORSTI'm a little concerned about where they're going with Paul, but I trust these writers implicitly.
- •WILL: HYPERNORMALISATIONIn which Adam Curtis, our greatest living documentarian, argues that we have entered into the politics of a "Post-Truth World." I'm dying to pay to see this legally, but it's only available via the BBC Player, which is not accessible in the US. So I'm going to watch a copy that someone uploaded to YouTube, then pay for an "official" copy as soon as I can.
- •WON'T: THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATEI get it, America. To make a woman the Presidential nominee, we have to put her through a "Male Id"-eruption "shame" ritual, like they did to the lady on Game of Thrones (another show I refuse to watch). I understand why it's so important to see Hillary yelled at by an "evil old man" (as @olive so memorably described Trump). But I don't have to watch.
