You should really check out Studio 60. I think you'll be surprised. It's mostly about the behind-the-scenes of a comedy show, but around episode four vampires arrive to battle a sudden infestation of zombies. Shit gets pretty bloody and destructive, if that's what you're into. Zombies have never grunted with such quick wit.
you ever seen pride and prejudice and zombies? stupid yet hilarious

anyway of course i know his name but it's way more fun for me to say dumb and dumber because it invokes this very bressonian juxtaposition in the mind

 


(this is why bresson preferred non-actors, he said)

Loved Olivia Munn! She’s taken nothing but shit roles since that show! Who would have thought she could actually act? Why doesn’t she do that?

She’s content to be a Megan Fox type, I guess. Bugger. She was one of the best oarts of the show. Actually, probably my favorite.

nah, she's not a stupid person and doesn't want that

"she's hot therefore stupid" is a horrible typecasting. curse of the hot girl

I don’t think she is stupid. I just don’t know why she takes roles like the dumb stripper girlfriend on “New Girl,” or the two-line, busty Psylocke in “X-Men: Apocalypse” when she’s clearly cut out for better things. Of course, what do I know? Might be all casting directors want from her. Which would be crappy as helll.

I don’t think you can really be stupid and also hold your own — not hold your own even, but be one of the high points of — an Aaron Sorkin show.

I saw all those other roles before I saw this one, so I’m just very pleasantly surprised by her. Damn good.

yeah it's a problem she's been having for a while now. like she can't be a feminist because she poses in a bikini or whatever. she's smart and funny but the casting & art directors see only a bimbo.

anyway here's an interview with her about a little bit of that

https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood...-pervs-anymore

wow that is old! i used to watch her in "attack of the show" -- not sure if you ever saw that program, it was a bunch of nerd shit and a lot of fun

Holy shit she was in Attack of the Show.

I barely watched that thing but it was on the same channel that re-ran Arrested Development every day during a period of ... ahhh... sadness and unemployment for me.

jeezus just finished watching the first episode of last year's walking dead-- you know-- when we find out who got clobbered

sooooooooo fuuuuuuuuuuuckin boooooooooooooring!

the only reason i watch is cuz i got hooked ont his long ago and i "have to" find out what happens.

but hell, everything takes soooooooo fuuuuuuuucking loooooooong with the pathetic music and the feeeeeeeeeelings!

the makers of this should could take a page from the "empire" book and make things move forward faster

if i had 1.5x playback on the app i'd do it that way

this show should be renamed "watch people moan"

finishing original dr who's "the keys of marinus" now

the ultra-low budget with the props and sets i can forgive--and even admire! extraordinary cheapness, ratty costumes, scale model,etc-- they show a lot of creativity.

but there is some terrible acting on it. poor susan (the doctor's granddaughter) is quite horrible-- she later blamed the series on the death of her acting career, but when you see her you realize it was all on her. a lot of the extras and minor characters were also pretty terrible.

and then the action sequences were super-awful-- instead of stunt people they had people move clumsily and slowly so that the opponent could safely "miss the hit". it's like something put on by highschoolers.

and the writing isn't great-- while the story has some sci-fi great ideas, the plot is stretched out with boy-scout type perils and other nonsense. same thing that happened in the first daleks serial when they take 3 episodes to move through some fucking caves.

anyway, worth it for the archaeology but not really a lot of fun in themselves in this day-- they just take too long because of all the fluff and filler.

i'm still gonna keep watching them though haaa haaa haaa haaaa

Anyone been watching this? I've just finished episode 5 of the ten there are and it really is something else. The interviews with people from both the North Vietnamese and American soldiers are definitely the highlights.

Just reminds you how much of a fucking mess the whole thing was. With all this, it still impresses me that the Labour government at the time refused to send significant troops there. Full well knowing how much of a cluster fuck the thing was, and also how much worse it was going to get.

But yeah, if you haven't seen it I'd recommend it highly.

once it's up free somewhere i'll watch it

--

eta: it's now streamable from the pbs website! but i can't stream much at home haaa haa haaa. (this is why i can't watch football). primitive tech! i'll wait for the dvd to hit the library.

Utterly mindblowing. Doesn't get much better than watching the episode covering the 4th dimension after a morning spent reading Lovecraft's 'Through the Gates of the Silver Key'.

Yes, this was a very enjoyable watch. Perspectives from soldiers on both sides really made it impactful as hell. And I know people around here sometimes can easily shit on NIN type of stuff, but I really thought the Reznor/Ross soundscapes fit pretty nicely. I was a little concerned going into it about them contrasting tonally with the content, but I thought they did a solid job.

I'll agree with the soundtrack. I'm not a NIN fan AT ALL but I've loved the soundtracks Reznor/Ross has done. The Gone Girl soundtrack was especially great.

What I've loved about it is that their soundtrack isn't in your face. It's there, but subtly adding, rather than overwhelming the scene (see Hans fucking Zimmer)

read some reviews on Vietnam, so I skipped it. Don't need a rewrite of actual history. Too bad, I guess it has some good points.

What did they say? Cos I've seen a lot more great reviews than bad reviews for it.

GLOW on Netflix is off to a promising start. Put it on out of sheer boredom after exhausting Schitt’s Creek (hilarious), and I’m totally in.

Who was it who said Allison Brie was skinny as hell in this show? Because she is. Like... wow. Skeletal. But still gorgeous. Crazy that her boobs popped right out like 5 minutes into the first episode. Like a dream that comes true out of nowhere and in the weirdest of ways.

Ignore me. I’m going through stuff right now.
