I like that Gregg is so petty that he didn't give Axiom a watch and also pays to create segments undermining him. Helps to remind you (along with Mark) that Gregg can be equally bad to people. Axiom is actually a totally nice person and hasn't done anything bad to Gregg besides have Tim anoint him "Mister Movies"

Don't have a non-reddit link. Here's the scene of Gregg running over LaRue from both POVs.

Any time the show forces you to empathize with Tim is when the show really shines imo - another major instance of that is the DNA test proving it's the "real" James Dean, since you share the same frustration with the lack of closure.

Dr San’s calculations were accurate and the DNA was a match. However, Gregg provided the DNA samples for the test, both of which belonged to the fraudulent “James Dean”. Dr. San’s only mistake was trusting Gregg.

Many are saying that Gregg also tainted Dr San’s acupuncture needles and had access to the vape liquid used at the Electric Sun Desert Music Festival.

It is likely that Gregg is responsible for every death on the show. He is a master of poison, not codes.

RIP Larue - he cracked the case, but didn’t expect that Gregg would immediately escalate from slow poison to brutal violence after being exposed.

Tim was willing to forgive and make a deal. Was probably gonna give Gregg a popcorn classics show on HEI. Instead of apologizing, Gregg murdered another man.

I hope the next season revolves around Tim owning everything Gregg has and keeping Gregg around to gloat over his victory. Then Tim will get some bizarre medical problem and things will find a way of evening out.

I see it more as Tim being the typical far-right/conspiracy chud, while Gregg is the kind of gatekeeper super-fanboy geek. Though I think it took longer for (real) Gregg to develop that character persona than it did for (real) Tim, who already had it nailed down by the end of the podcast run.

Ultimately, two types of Very Online Person.

No, the reason hey are compelling characters is that these overt layers are a natural product of their deeper personalities. Tim isn't just a flat caricature of a hosed up nutjob, he's a hosed up nutjob because of his wildly flailing efforts to stop being a failure combined with his pre-established predilections and personal delusions. And Gregg definitely isn't just a "nerd gatekeeper", no, that's an almost incidental aspect of his basically sociopathic personality, he's a little rat who sees everything in strictly transactional terms and quietly rejoices in the failures of those who "stand in his way" by not sharing his interests, he's just too much of a coward to take any action of his own on his dark impulses , so he's ultimately merely passive-aggressive most of the time.

I wasn't able to watch the Oscar Special live (gently caress time zones), is there a way to watch it on tape with both the Gregg's stream and the studio and whatever else there was simultaneously? Is it all on HEI?

I agree that Tim is not a caricature. Neither of them are.

HEI has the option to watch both simultaneously in the same player, or in separate players. Both options are synced.

I liked the one where he interviewed Jack Grisham because he appeared super nervous and like he maybe accidentally drank too much as a result, which I thought was endearing.

This has made me realize that the bit where OC Gregg rags on Tim when it looks like he's gonna be in jail for a while is the closest he's gotten on the show to actual Gregg

Something I think about a lot is even Tim's non-OCatC roles are usually assholes. The Tim that appears on Awesome Show is usually in a fight with Eric for whatever reason, Jan Skylar absolutely hates her husband and Mr. Henderson is a monster, especially at first.

If I could bring one Awesome Show/Check it Out actor over to On Cinema, I would choose Carol Kraft, I love her so much.

If you watch Office Hours you will see this a lot. Basically he just starts yelling at everyone as a gag but like a little bit he's serious.

sometimes i wonder if for real Tim has anger issues and realizes this about himself and just leans into it in order to laugh at himself about it, because his sudden anger bursts in all his various forms always feel so real. alternatively he's just a real good actor
