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.

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 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 Ate Those Food (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:19 (one year ago) link

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

Chris L, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:34 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year ago) link

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

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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year ago) link

you must be talking about Star Trek II

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

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

watching Tim and Gregg watch On Cinema was A+

Tim said they have tons of outtakes where they break into laughter and he teased a compilation. Evidently this is usually Gregg's fault for droning on too long and not being able to get out before he breaks.

I had no idea each season was filmed in a single day. I figured maybe over the course of a couple weeks or something....

singular wolf erotica producer (Hadrian VIII), Saturday, 25 July 2020 22:35 (two months ago) link

Loved Gregg’s Chicken Delight jacket and of course he has a Tiki room in his house (extra points for him if he bought it because it already had a Tiki room).

In Tim's IG stories today someone asked about the future of OCatC and he suggested that Adult Swim was less than enthusiastic about the show... which seems crazy right?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Saturday, 5 September 2020 05:07 (one month ago) link

Well AS has so much other great content rn so

imago, Saturday, 5 September 2020 06:55 (one month ago) link

Noticed that in the stories too. Made me curious as well. Decker question had the same exact answer.

Evan, Saturday, 5 September 2020 20:51 (one month ago) link

I don't really find it surprising. it's a show which could only appeal to total heads. not going to win over many people flicking between channels. the youtube episodes don't even do particularly spectacular numbers. they have to fundraise to make the Oscar special every year. seems very much like a labour of love from them rather than something adult swim is keen for them to keep making

rascal clobber (jim in vancouver), Saturday, 5 September 2020 20:56 (one month ago) link

Tim always seems to have a chip on his shoulder when it comes to stuff like this so who knows. You’d think Adult Swim would let him do whatever he wants by now.

frogbs, Saturday, 5 September 2020 23:10 (one month ago) link

The show stars Ryan Phillippe in the lead role of Bob Lee Swagger, a retired U.S. Marine Corps sniper living in seclusion who is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the President.
