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 (one year 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.

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 (one year 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 (one year 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 got into it through the spin-off, Decker.

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.

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

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

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

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 (one year 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

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

The show I saw them play as Zip Code Redemption last year was rather delightful and was pretty much all tongue in cheek covers (Back on the Chain Gang, You Oughta Know, and Wake me up before You Go-Go are the ones I nabbed some video of). As an added bonus, Gregg wore a Reese's Pieces T-shirt, which had to be a reference to the immortal Neil Hamburger E.T. joke.

when heidecker blended his real life name/persona with his comedy, it became performance life art, imo

there is no clear line between "real" or "performing" heidecker in any context now. i suppose that's true to an extent for all well-known artists, but i think he has taken it to a new level

xp I think in some ways that distinction has actually become clearer these past couple of years, largely because of the podcast...he is more evidently in or out of character as "real" Tim gets more exposure, the curtain has definitely been pulled back a little

early-Woolf semantic prosody (Hadrian VIII), Wednesday, 16 December 2020 17:35 (one month ago) link

in the early days of the podcast I remember him refusing questions on air about On Cinema (not for exanple tour dates, but the process, what's in the works, etc.) but now he seems kind of open to it which bums me out a little

Hearing him talk for an hour about Paul Simon's Surprise is about as mask-off as it gets. Also that Office Hours episode when he had gotten targeted by Q folks.

Tim is a bit over earnest as a musician and music lover, which is an interesting stark contrast against his persona in regards to comedy. I think he's been a little wrapped up in feeling like a Real Indie Rockstar this past year especially, but I don't fault him! Glad he's having so much fun.

As Hadrian said it wasn't that long ago when it was very rare to witness Tim out of (some sort of) character/performance.

Evan, Thursday, 17 December 2020 17:13 (one month ago) link

I can't even imagine the musical crossover between IRL Gregg & Tim. Gregg is far more open-minded than he gets credit for, but he's long operated in some of the more extreme fringes of music to some of the more commercial (tour manager for Link Wray, Mr. Bungle, Faith No More... & VonLMO lol)

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 17 December 2020 17:18 (one month ago) link

Tim's music influence is dad rock as far as I can tell but he seems to know a lot about top level indie stuff too.
Is that corny in 2020? I don't think so. It is hip to un-ironically like music that was previously firmly cheese & corn. Who doesn't like Elote?
