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 (nine 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 (nine 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 (nine 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 (nine months ago) link

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

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

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

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

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

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

how come there are no animated gifs of Tim's guitar wanking faces, that shit is comedy gold

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 (nine months ago) link

you must be talking about Star Trek II

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:39 (nine months ago) link

This playlist seems to comprise the definitive chronology of the On Cinema-verse (countdown to exasperated sic post detailing, at length,what's missing from said hi playlist): https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRT5PdjVF-ipL5SPXbmZXzfBchXVR8JTo

I Ate Those Food (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 06:18 (nine months ago) link

I graciously accept your thanks for my recommending that playlist to you

I completely don’t get this

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

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

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

Todd Rundgren appears in the last episode of Decker...I knew that voice was familiar!!

"Why was he fired, did he forget to wipe down the microwave?"

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 18:34 (nine 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)

quelle sprocket damage (sic), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 18:41 (nine months ago) link

the satire of the kind of fake fancy junk food you get in north america - e.g. everything coming with truffle aoili - was very good

bookmarkflaglink (jim in vancouver), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 19:16 (nine months ago) link

I would say you can watch highlights of the trial until Tim fires his attorney and starts defending himself, then switch to the full thing

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 (nine months ago) link

Has anyone started an On On Cinema at the Cinema podcast yet

I just watched shakey's clip the other day. It wouldn't be nearly as beautiful without the interviewer's overt lack of interest in Gregg's banalities.

I wouldn't be surprised if he did meet them at Guitar Center: IIRC, Axiom and Manuel are in a real band together (Last Second Chance), and that is their IRL look/style.

wondering what kind of scam Tim is trying to pull on Toni, making her sign the annulment quickly and then changing his last name for some reason

also is it implied that he slept with the pastor? the way he kept looking at her instead of Toni...yeeesh

something I just realized now (which I think was supposed to be obvious all along) is that the name of the character in the new Joker is Arthur, something which somehow goes unremarked upon the entire special

frogbs, Monday, 24 February 2020 14:45 (one month ago) link

Thought it was a nice touch that he called Ayaka the love of his life immediately before getting (re-)married to a different woman.

My read is that he sincerely loves Toni (or at least thinks he does) but he just can’t stop scheming and using people and chasing the next shiny thing.

frogbs, Monday, 24 February 2020 15:44 (one month ago) link

Yeah, the musicians on the last couple Oscar specials have come closest to puncturing the illusion. One of the dudes from last year's kinda drove me nuts with his excessively-hammy 'I'M LIKE SO SCARED OF TIM RIGHT NOW!' mugging.

Expart of Languidge (Old Lunch), Monday, 24 February 2020 15:45 (one month ago) link

I feel like Tim & co. would probably take great pains to let the musicians and impersonators know what's up ahead of time. Like, he's not gonna start vehemently abusing people who don't know he's just fucking around.
