Half the Tim & Eric thread is about this show so I think it deserves its own thread

Granted I'm only like 13 hours into this thing but it's possibly one of the best comedic achievements of the 21st century

also this video is wonderful and I watch it every day

Worth looking for: the episode of The Best Show from a couple years back where Tim and Gregg take up about an hour of the show arguing over whether or not Tim actually saw the Tom Cruise remake of The Mummy.

Herman Woke (cryptosicko), Tuesday, 2 July 2019 15:44 (four months ago) link

I never really gave a shit about the Tim & Eric show but I am 100% on board with this as pure genius, Turkington hooking up with him was a godsend.
I'm on season 9.

feel like I'm doing a marathon to catch up but even then I can only watch like a handful of these in a row otherwise I will succumb to severe couchlock hypnosis

I think the guys using the mailbag to passive aggressively torment/spring surprises on each other is my favorite gag

i watched the first episode of this afew days ago.....does it get better? or do you just have to immerse yourself in the voib for a few episodes before you can get into it?

. (Michael B), Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:16 (four months ago) link

It’s my favorite television thing. You really need to immerse yourself (similar to the Best Show).

Allen (etaeoe), Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:18 (four months ago) link

Immerse, my friend. Let it wash over you.

Six seasons of uncritical plaudits for every film under the sun was a magnificent setup for Tim's excoriating Ant-Man review.

I Ate Those Food (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:19 (four months ago) link

I got into it through the spin-off, Decker.

Chris L, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:34 (four months ago) link

Oh god there are Oscar specials and a 12 hour long youtube clip ;_; I am going to have to watch it, I'm afraid. These guys are unreal.

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:48 (four months ago) link

didn't realize it until I went back but Tim's speech was a lot less garbled pre-brain surgery

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:03 (four months ago) link

for some reason the Oscar Specials are not on the Adult Swim streaming channel

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:18 (four months ago) link

at first it just seems like a shitty half-assed parody that does not feature any actual jokes, but as time goes on, the layers of comedy really accrue in an ingenious way

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:19 (four months ago) link

probably said this in the other thread but Tim's explanation of why he's paying for Ayaka's abortion despite being a staunch pro-lifer is the purest distillation of the right-wing ethos that I've ever heard

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:20 (four months ago) link

he just... he wasn't going to be in that situation

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:22 (four months ago) link

I don't know how to explain this to you but the "Stump the Buff" segment where Tim nails Gregg on the Star Trek/San Francisco trivia question is just as dramatic as the scene in Breaking Bad where Hank figures out who Heisenberg is

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:34 (four months ago) link

you must be talking about Star Trek II

Popcorn Classic is a really useful term for a certain kind of movie.

Daniel_Rf, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 09:37 (four months ago) link

I thank u, sic, although I spent a long while watching a different, much less complete YT playlist (after starting on the even less complete playlist on that one website) so I just wanted to make sure no one else made my stupid mistake. I give this latest playlist five bags of popcorn and a hundred cups of soda.

I Ate Those Food (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 14:28 (four months ago) link

The later seasons of Decker aren’t on youtube btw, but iirc they stop interacting directly with On Cinema episodes so it doesn’t stand out badly

(The two Ant-Man movies also don’t appear in the playlist, but do very much affect On Cinema video and twitter content )

forks if you were starting at an early point, try dropping in on a S4 or 5 episode, when the Tim vs Gregg tone is better established & there’s loads of backstory, to see if it pings any better with you

quelle sprocket damage (sic), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 18:16 (four months ago) link

eh I think starting in the beginning obscures what a slow build this show is

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 18:34 (four months ago) link

if someone "completely doesn't get" the show at the beginning, pushing on through twenty episodes of more of the same is probably going to bore and annoy them

oh yeah, the full real-time Trial Of Tim Heidecker coverage isn't on youtube either, just 10-15 minutes highlights from each day (iirc that's all I watched, then switched over for the full verdict)

a couple of my old acquaintances recently started a video game podcast. I listened to one episode and thought about On Cinema the whole time. one of the guys has probably played 20,000 hours of video games but has absolutely nothing insightful to say about them, it's so spot on that I've almost come to view Tim & Gregg as real people

frogbs, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 22:07 (four months ago) link

Cappy Ricks (Walter Brennan) has returned home from a long voyage at sea only to find that his family and business are not as he left them... Cappy Ricks knows he has to end the chaos and set things straight. He brings everyone on his ship as there he can be the Captain and in charge. He has a two day excursion extend into an 8 week voyage. Then they are lost on an uninhabited island. And as in other movies of that period, he uses the island to straighten out the arrogance of the rich ladies and the weakness of sons under mothers dominance.

I'd give it five bags of popcorn, and maybe a shotgun shell from "The Real McCoys".

If he survives I shudder to think how they’ll top “Tim plays with guns” as a theme.

I know they mentioned in a recent interview that they had previously scrapped an arc where Tim dies and is replaced by his twin brother. But they also recently established (I think in Mister America?) that Tim has no siblings currently living so I think that ship has sailed?

Lucky Pierre Delecto (crüt), Thursday, 24 October 2019 16:38 (two weeks ago) link

I don't think they'll let anything said previously get in the way of sailing whatever ship they want to sail tbf
