Want to know why the ‘Masters of Sex’ subplot of Austin Langham’s misadventures with Artemis and her Cal-o-Metric charms feels so familiar? It’s essentially the 1960s version of ‘The Bubble’ arc on 30 Rock starring Jon Hamm as another handsome man with no clear idea how the world works without his beauty.
Think about it.
That’s what makes [Dean] Ambrose so much cooler than [Roman] Reigns. Reigns seems like a guy doing wrestling stories. He’s being prepped as a John Cena/Sheamus type, an action figure that shows up on cue and says his catchphrase and does his moves. Dean Ambrose seems like a guy who wants to FIGHT YOU TO DEATH and believes everything he says. That’s crucial. That’s what’s going to make Ambrose a hero to people like me, and Reigns a hero to little kids. Little kids want to raise their hands and say “yay.” I want to see a motherf*cker bleed.
"I want to see a motherfucker bleed" is a quote worth living by.
The early 2000s nostalgia machine is ramping downward right on time for its final destination —- the toilet.
