Ed walked out of the theater feeling fortified and stapled. His brain was buzzing, the way it always did while watching Star Wars. He loaded up his XBox with Halo and Final Fantasy and headed for Margaritaville. "I've had it!" he sang. "I've had it with irony, references, detached cynicism, and Donald Trump. I will drive without an iPhone, without Google Maps, and if I make it to Starkiller Base, fine, but if I'm running late, if I'm running a Star Citizen Kickstarter, it doesn't matter because this is the answer, this is the ending. I will keep on running because a Man who's Running stays in motion and it's better to feel. Star Wars is better than Star Trek, Star Trek is better than Babylon 5, Babylon 5 is better than Stargate, and Stargate is better than this.

Because it's easy breezy bullshit that indulges in the very worst aspects of nostalgia and gatekeeping, all wrapped-up in the most unchallenging voice possible. It's basically "Well, Actually": The Novel.

I'm not too crazy about Blame It On Outer Space (maybe it's because he's playing a character) but he's definitely my favorite in WHM due to his voice and sense of comedic timing. All of my hysterical laughter moments have been one of his random one liners (my favorite is probably his Jeffrey Dahmer joke in Demolition Man)

Business is slow

In Ready Player One, the protagonist dude keeps worrying about whether his nerdgirl love interest is secretly a hairy dude named Chuck, to the point of directly accusing her of such, and the whole time I was going "If she is misrepresenting her sex online, it's quite possibly because she's a transwoman who doesn't have the money or means to transition and you're making the place she goes to escape worse by misgendering her you insensitive gently caress"

And then it turns out she has a scar on her face and that's why she doesn't like to talk about herself. Luckily the trailer shows her with her hair covering half her face so this story line is probably intact!

With WHM, one can barely watch the movie but another will more than make up for it by watching it a dozen times across reviews, teaching, and fat kid summers.

I do hope somebody watched The Shop Around the Corner to prepare for the episode.

A long time ago, maybe in this very thread, I saw someone make the comparison of Eric’s sense of humor and delivery to that of Norm Macdonald, and that is so spot-on and one of the reasons he’s consistently a surprise mvp. Like he doesn’t nail impressions like Andrew or Steve does, but he has this amazing ability to sneak in through the back door of a joke.

The only thing I don't like about Eric is when he plays things overly literal, like:

Andrew: "He's as big as William 'The Refrigerator' Perry!"
Eric: "Wait! Wait! Wait! Are you saying this man is an actual refrigerator? Explain this to me! Does he need to be plugged in? Do you put beer in him?"

His humor most closely aligns with mine most of the time, but I don't like when he plays the village idiot bit. It feels like sometimes he's doing the dumb friend trope from a sitcom. But he's usually very on-point and super funny. There have been quite a few times where he's dropped something on an episode and I've thought, "drat, this dude really knows his stuff."
