Review: HBO's 'Doll & Em' good at satirizing friendship, less at Hollywood

Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells created and star in new comedy of discomfort

One of the lessons drilled into any young writer is a simple one: "Write what you know." The problem, at least when applying this rule to television, is that what many of the people who work in television know about is television and nothing but, which is why there have been so many shows over the years — most of them failures — about characters who work in the entertainment industry.

Inside showbiz stories aren't inherently bad, as seven seasons of "30 Rock," or even a showbiz-adjacent series like "Curb Your Enthusiasm" have amply demonstrated. But watching HBO's new comedy series "Doll & Em," all I could think about was how much I wished the setting was anywhere but Hollywood.

Firewall & Iceberg Show, episode 8

In another in-person show, Dan and Alan also answer your questions

So remember that time last week when Dan and I were able to record an entire Firewall & Iceberg show in the same room? Well, we had so much fun that I extended my stay in LA indefinitely to record another one! Or else we just changed shirts and recorded another one only minutes later! Or some other solution to the mystery that is us!

Whenever it was recorded, Dan and I review the CW's "The 100" and HBO's "Doll & Em," tease the new season of "Game of Thrones," and answer questions on a variety of subjects, including the current state of "Parks and Recreation."

The rundown:

0:00-5:12 Doll & Em
5:12- 9:53 The 100
11:10- 21:20- Viewer Mail
22:37- 33:00- Game of Thrones

As always, you can send us questions at firewalliceberg@hitfix.com. There's also now a YouTube channel where you can subscribe to all upcoming Firewall & Iceberg videos, at https://www.youtube.com/show/firewalliceberg.

The 'Veronica Mars' movie spoiler review

Some more thoughts on the return of Veronica, Logan, Keith and the rest

The "Veronica Mars" movie was released on Friday, in a limited number of theaters, via various digital and On Demand platforms, and through digital downloads that came as one of the Kickstarter rewards. (Though I understand there have been some glitches with that.) I already reviewed the film in advance, but there are certain things I didn't want to talk about until many of you had seen it. So spoilers coming up just as soon as I'm a Hooters barback...
