It’s that dynamic that makes this a particularly fascinating showcase for Samberg. He’s spent his career playing oblivious oafs, and although some of his performances have displayed the tiniest streak of vulnerability, none compare to what he’s doing here. This is not a drama or even a dramedy—but in one pivotal scene especially, we do discover the root of Nyles’s discomfort with talking about his emotions. It’s surprisingly moving, and it feels like the culmination of a career spent exploring braggadocios frat-boy characters.

But I’m not one of those people who’s wedded to, oh, a statue, to somebody someplace is an important thing. I don’t — again, if the community doesn’t want the statue there, the statue shouldn’t be there. Doesn’t diminish my pride in my Italian-American heritage, and the fact that it was a country discovered by … [Read more...] about Nancy Pelosi OK with Destruction of Christopher Columbus Statue in Baltimore: ‘People Will Do What They Do’
I understand that we are all desperate to go back to normal. But there is no normal anymore. The rules that were once in place no longer apply. We as teachers love your kids, but they are not ours, although we often think of them that way.
