Undone from BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg debuts today and looks great

The Jawbreaker doc isn't what I expected, feels more like an overview for people who haven't heard of them.

been watching good omens and halfway-enjoying it out of residual affection for the book--but it's bad. i can't imagine watching this show without having read the book. the kids can't act, neither can the witch. tennant looks bored (by design, but still) and it manages to waste jon hamm, of all people. but michael sheen is delightful, makes the whole thing almost worth it.

the visuals are so frenetically busy underneath her that it undermines her casual delivery from what might otherwise play as deadpan.

this is it. i understand the need for a narrator in adapting this book (it always reminded me of hitchhiker's guide in that regard), but they shoulda just gotten jim dale!

went back up to check the Good Omens talk and

One of the episodes of Good Omens has the intro 25 minutes in. That's just not on.

i unsubscribed from amazon bc fuck em (no judgment) but i desperately need people to tell me if this show is good

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 23:03 (one month ago) link

yeah it's pretty good.

Carnival Row looks abominable.

akm, Thursday, 19 September 2019 01:46 (one month ago) link

Haha, I forgot I still had a few episodes left of that. It's not very good.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Thursday, 19 September 2019 02:25 (one month ago) link

xps Finished Undone and thought it was excellent. It's only eight 22 minute episodes so not a huge commitment and well worth tracking down

groovypanda, Thursday, 19 September 2019 08:35 (one month ago) link

it's cool to see/hear Odenkirk insomething again given the interminable delay before the next Better Call Saul season

Agreed, but he’s stayed busy - was in Long Shot, is in the Alexander / Karazewski Dolemite biopic that’s out in two weeks, and though I haven’t seen it & probably never will, is on the US remake of No Activity.

I watched Serenity last night to see if it was really as bad and batshit as the reviews I read said it was and it was actually worse if you can imagine. In a just world it would end the careers of everyone involved.

Saw the Death doc. Was pretty generic, but a good overview of death metal's origins and evolution.

xpost I heard the How Did This Get Made ep, and ... woof.

I’m kind of enjoying Swamp Thing - though the ‘baddie’ is boring.

(And the baddie is one of those old people who look like a young person in ‘old’ makeup)

Goliath s3 is out, I guess? Will check it out

mh, Friday, 4 October 2019 21:59 (two weeks ago) link

Hope it doesn't go off the rails like season 2 did.

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Saturday, 5 October 2019 00:22 (two weeks ago) link

Goliath is easily the worst show I enjoy

Simon H., Saturday, 5 October 2019 00:26 (two weeks ago) link

...and yet the s3 premiere is so dumb already I might have to jump ship right here and now

Simon H., Saturday, 5 October 2019 03:10 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah, that was baaaaad.

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Saturday, 5 October 2019 10:10 (two weeks ago) link

I'm so in the tank for that show, i can't imagine not seeing this

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Saturday, 5 October 2019 10:52 (two weeks ago) link

I'm not quite sure what they're trying to go for vibe-wise, but we've got some Blue Velvet homage scenes, magical attack crows, and weird appropriative shamanic trances facilitated by drugs. Also, a water crisis exacerbated by almond farmers for the A-plot

mh, Saturday, 5 October 2019 16:29 (two weeks ago) link

I'm not quite sure these episodes are written as much as generated by a plot generation program that was fed a handful of other scripts

mh, Saturday, 5 October 2019 16:30 (two weeks ago) link

I want to support it cause Billy Bob is one of the few remaining genuine Hollywood eccentrics, and Nina Arianda is awesome, but my God I couldn't even finish that episode

Simon H., Saturday, 5 October 2019 16:33 (two weeks ago) link

still glad I watched it and hate that it didn’t get renewed but the drop off in quality between the first and second season of Patriot is kind of a bummer

I'm enjoying S3 of Goliath more than I thought I would, but I'm only halfway through, so they still have a chance to mess it up. The episode-long flashback (E4) is...not funny-funny, but uncomfortable-funny.

WmC, Tuesday, 8 October 2019 20:42 (one week ago) link

Oh nice, they've added Claire Denis' High Life.

I've been watching educational videos lately, making up for gaps in my college education. I watched this great series on Amazon, "Physics of Light" which had stuff like this Asian dude shooting off guns and stuff. Really good physical illustrations of scientific concepts. Struck a chord with me as I've been spending too much time spying on 4Chan types with their stupid sterotypes of Asians.
