Watched through first 3 episodes of The Righteous Gemstones. I am really liking it so far. Not at all what I thought it was going to be. Based on casting and previews, I really thought it was going to be a bit more slapstick Eastbound and Down with religion feeling. This show is actually very dark in its satire. I really get a Coen brothers vibe in it. It totally reminded me of Raising Arizona and Fargo. Very good character driven dark comedy revolving around some pretty fucked up criminal shit. Really good stuff, and Goodman is absolutely AMAZING in it so far. I think this is going to be a great character for him.

Well, you might want to dive deeper into that curiosity, and realize that The Righteous Gemstones might be that Workaholics fix you need on your comedown. Adam DeVine is in it as well.

(mild, mild spoiler) In fact, I am thinking it's another genius move for this show. 2 scenes in, knowing the characters he normally plays and seeing his "street clothes" outfit, you immediately think to yourself "I know exactly who this character is..." And thus far, he is coming off as the most sensible family-oriented, kind-hearted one of the group. Totally flipping the script. Hard to explain, but people familiar with him might understand what I am saying.

Season 3 of Casa de Papel. On ep 4.

It's good, but it is a bit of a rehash, probably written to extend it past S2 without a lot of thought. I expected it to go in a different direction.

Still, first 2 seasons are some of the best TV I've ever seen and S3 is miles above what is on usually.

this guy is an awesome character!

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?
