Probably not a good thing that I identified with the 'emo dykes' the main character was bitching about. (Her words, not mine)
Five months later, we're actually watching it properly. It relies on some immature gross-out humour a bit too much (like one scene featuring a character making a [completely bullshit] drawing of his dad sexually abusing him), and there's one weird scene where a character complains "I'm not going to apologise for trying to be funny" - Chris Lilley is rather divisive, considering that he's still somehow using blackface in 2019.

That said, when it hits its stride there's some really funny bits, and there was a great one when one of his characters stood up at school assembly with her friends to argue for having a formal:
Quote:
Formals are a rare place when everyone can get together. Emos...Asians...Christians...skanks...lesbians...a nd even hot girls like me can all put aside our differences for one night.

I'll try and find it on YouTube tonight for y'all.

Funny you should say that, because I feel like that is exactly what it

Sure, the plot’s different, characters are different, but it’s fucking Eastbound & Down (only with religion!) just like Vice Principals was more-or-less Eastbound & Down (in a School!).

I’ll watch it, and I have been, but the humor is the same, and the writing hasn't evolved much. Surprise, Danny McBride is not the Coen Bros.

Oh well. It will be funny for 2-3 seasons before there’s a year absence between it and Eastbound & Down In Space or whatever, in which Danny McBride plays a southern moron astronaut who wants to be good at his job but isn’t, and hilarity ensues ...

I finished watching the last episodes of Game Of Thrones yesterday. Boy, what a letdown that last episode was. I know I was warned but still. it's a shame for such an epic series to end it like that.


also, I've been watching a lot of Would I Lie To You? bits and pieces on Youtube, the British version. I think there will be a Dutch version of it soon, but it will probably not be half as good as the Brits do it.
(this is just a random link there are loads and loads of them, but yeah Jimmy Carr is a funny guy)

I dig him a lot. I get quite a kick out of his specials. I also went down a rabbit-hole of watching his hosted Giant Quiz of Everything shows on Youtube a year or so ago. fun stuff.

I like this show. I literally just started this show a few weeks ago. About 5 episodes in (season 1). Absolutely love Culkin in it. I have not seen him in a whole lot of things, but I feel this character is very similar to his Scott Pilgrim character, and he plays it really well. He nails the "don't give a fuck" narcissist personality.

So true. So true.


Have not seen anyone talking about El Camino yet. I thought it was great. Pretty much exactly everything I wanted it to be honestly. I feel it is getting pretty mixed reviews though. I am interested in the thoughts amongst the Breaking Bad/Saul fans here?

well well well time to eat my words

years ago i tried to watch fleabag and hated the character and even had a recent discussion with h8kurdt about it

but since the show won some emmys (i dont give a shit about emmys so it wasn’t that directly) the woman who wrote it etc appeared on... SNL was it? and i caught a youtube of her little speech saying blah blah etc and then while looking for a show decided, eh, second chance.

i was still not crazy about the character on rewatch of the first episode, but this time i liked the jokes better.

slowly by the end of season 1 i was hooked and now yesterday saw 4 of the episodes with prof. moriarti in them.

brilliant show really, so very well written, and yeah i take back what i said earlier, i take it aaaaaall back. turned out it was a lot more complicated than that.

Haha! Glad you're enjoying it now. There's some solid ideas and writing in it for sure.

I'll admit to having a big g crush on fleabag. That jumpsuit she wears on the restaurant episode? My gahd. That along with the short dress she wears as she's going up to the attic in an episode later on. Oof she got it.

I liked The Amazing Gemstones, but it was not as funny as I expected.

My wife and I have been dealing with a lot of family shit so one of our go to shows to veg out with is Friends. (I watched the first 4-5 seasons back in day day). I never realized exactly how hateful, irredeemable, and self-absorbedly vapid the character of Rachel Green is. I think the only reason it worked is because Jennifer Anniston is so goddamn naturally charming, that it allowed everyone not to just HATE that Rachel bitch.

i... do not see her that way lol. she does have an interesting look though.

i know the sister is supposed to be “hotter” but i don’t see it either hahahaha.

dunno. maybe she surrounded herself with jabronis.

but that’s kinda besides the point cuz im here for the story and the characters. which are brilliant. fucking shit the bro in law i wanna punch him in the throat. the sis—complete wacko. the stepmom—throw her out the window. the poor dad!

yeah wait now that i think of it more she surrounds herself with jabronis lmao. moral ones anyway. she’s “the least terrible” person lolololol. but yeah it’s great writing.
