So, this is essentially an infomercial for her product line?

All the Goop stuff is so confusing. I've seen Gwyneth Paltrow take the piss out of her own products on comedy shows as if she's in on the joke that it's all a bullshit money grab. But she also seems to take it seriously as well.

Woot! Also it looks like they updated Data's look to be more aged instead of sleek and puffy

Edit: Is that Data? Or is it B4? I can't remember if it was ever known until the show comes out.

She's in The Politician.

Which barely counts b/c her husband helped make it and she always shows up in his stuff!!

But she owns. As an actress. As a person she is an incredibly amusing hot mess grifter.

Fun fact, they reused her head from the box in Se7en in the morgue scene in Contagion. As an actress she's ok I guess but come on, snake oil is a lovely grift.

Is it still technically a grift if you actually believe in the dumb pseudo-science your brand peddles?

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

I was Forbidden from watching the Simpson's as a boy because of Bart's sass mouth so I first watched the show dubbed to a bunch of VHS tapes my best friends in college had in 1999.

I watched Max Headroom on DVD this weekend. I went into it hoping that I would barely notice the difference, but... I very much noticed the difference. Poorly-mastered SD looks like poo poo.

Well, shows of that era were mastered on video so they are BARELY better than VHS in terms of resolution and are interlaced to boot. SD from a good source and encoded well can look pretty clean upscaled, but yeah, budget 80s/90s TV won't unless they have and can/will go back to the original film elements to scan.

Animation, on the other hand, usually fares pretty well.

Sadly I think commentary tracks are going to relegated to directors deciding to record one on their own time and upload the audio to YouTube. Once again, Aronofsky was ahead of his time with The Fountain.

Yeah, though when watching Batman Beyond this weekend it was still painfully obvious every time shots were SD-sourced.
