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

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

the whole of season 9 seems to be an extended satire on how annoying having dinner service at the Alamo Drafthouses is

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

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)

the trial is astonishingly great. you HAVE to watch the full thing and not just the highlights.

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 (three 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

no!!!!!!!

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 (three 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.

It's probably okay to just stop if you don't feel like it's a five-bagger.

What have you watched / listened to so far?

quelle sprocket damage (sic), Monday, 8 July 2019 02:25 (three months ago) link

Me, I just bore witness to the cancellation of Decker season 3 this evening, so it's difficult to put myself back in the headspace of several years ago when I watched a handful of On Cinemas and said 'IDGI'. Suffice it say, I'm glad I got over myself.

The effects at Dracula's castle were a whole 'nother level of special. I particularly liked the table that followed Gregg around for a while.

"as we all remember so many years ago, a couple of years ago we had the death of osama bin laden, killed in action after we spent years hunting him for the murder of 9/11"

I would've liked to see Sasha Baron Cohen play the Osama role

i'm pretty much where brad is, i think - i watched all of S1 in one sitting and loved it. absolutely drove my partner crazy though, i think.

i love all the talk about how good it is to see some famous, sometimes washed up, actor "back on the big screen"

"It's great seeing Brendan Frasier back in a movie again, I've always loved him, and I love looking at Katherine Heigl, she's just the kind of woman I like, in terms of beauty, and sex appeal, she is hot, she is a 10, actually"

"If you've seen the movie, you'd know it's an animated movie about a squirrel"

"You have to admit the technology now is so good that some of these animated movies look like real life"

"Some of them do, but when a squirrel starts talking, you generally know it's an animated picture"

You imagine there ought to be a real life Gregg out there, absolutely ecstatic about the selection of dusty old extremely forgettable VHS movies in some bin at a thrift shop, next to a some CD cases of old computer software, AOL trials, Yanni, baseball games for PS2 etc.

Evan, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:41 (three months ago) link

Thank u for reminding me of the Nut Job review, frogs. Tim's overreaction to Gregg's joke about it being the name of Tim's autobiography was my first big On Cinema laugh.

Just recently saw some Neil Hamburger footage for the first time since I started watching this show. I don't know how I'd forgotten the extreme disparity between the two sides of Turkington, but it was a stark reminder.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:46 (three months ago) link

I love that they generally never review actual hits, tentpole pics, oscar winners etc. not even huge mainstream garbage (MCU, Star Wars, Pixar etc) its almost always b-list shit that instantly vanishes from the public consciousness.

aka popcorn classics!

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:49 (three months ago) link

idk why but every time tim mispronounces an actor's name i completely lose it, thankfully it happens in every single episode

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:57 (three months ago) link

I especially like a) when assumes that the first and last names were transposed and b) when he assumes that the name on the card must be a misprint because it's not written in the same way that it left his mouth.

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:03 (three months ago) link

If the mispronunciations are tickling your funny bone, watching Decker might actually kill you. Exercise caution!

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:04 (three months ago) link

Tim is great at it. I find it funny cause it reminds me of my dad tbh.

Evan, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 17:09 (three months ago) link

I think it's fair to say that Tim Heidecker is the unparalleled master of awkward, error-prone, completely unearned arrogance.

his On Cinema persona is actually kinda similar to the early "America's Funnyman" version of the character

Tim waving a gun around, saying he couldnt tell if there was a bullet in the chamber, pointing it at his own face and pulling the trigger... I didnt think this show still had the capacity to make me feel that level of uncomfortable 11 seasons in but damn guys, you did it.

it's obvious to me that Tim's crosshairs are firmly fixed on Josh Lorton (or Victor Vincent Rosetti).

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 17 October 2019 16:13 (two days ago) link

I love how the Luke verse as employed in the episode doesn't exactly resemble any of the actual major translations of that particular Bible verse, and instead seems cobbled together from several different versions, fudging the meaning just slightly ("homeland" instead of "homestead") — but is still an actual verse

If Dekar was real (in many ways he is!) he would be tracking down Josh Loran and eliminating him with extreme prejudice

i had to check that josh lorton wasn't a real person playing a character w/ the same name bc the incitement was so intense i was legit worried someone might die bc of a crazed fan

feel it would be remiss of me not to mention the new dril show truthpoint here too. yeah it owes a lot to OCATC but has a similar lols per minute rate and seems extremely promising based on episode 1
