Yeah, it sounds like the same model as Prime, where it's free if you have the service, but you can buy episodes individually for $2-3 if you don't. And unlike Prime shows, I think this will be available on other services (but definitely don't quote me on that).

Interestingly enough there's also whispers that Sony might use this to revive Community. It's based on very little besides "the name of the show showed up on the screen of an E3 presentation alongside several other shows," though.

That's the exact same image they used at last year's conference. I know I'm the guy who should be getting unreasonably hopeful but that doesn't change anything.

Yo I have to post about this because if I don't make a record of this, somewhere, I won't believe it actually happened

So I was in the gym shower after working out and a dude walked in with his loving chest hair shaved into the shape of a loving cross

Already a great story but not the best part

The best part was this dude connected his chest-cross to his pubic hair (which honestly seems a bit sacrilegious to me but w/e)

His pubic hair was completely unshaved

So essentially this dude made a giant loving arrow pointing straight to his cock and balls, and if there was ever a more succinct metaphor for the role of religion in society I have not seen it

I love everything.

Justin Roiland is a very strange man but that was almost a decade ago. It's like deciding not to watch Community because Dan Harmon made Laser Fart.

Also, if you want to associate Harmon with some bizarre pre-Community thing, you should make it Heat Vision and Jack.

Should I finish Season 2 of Korra? I watched up through the origin of the avatar special which was pretty good but stopped there.

The finale is hilariously dumb. I'm not sure it's worth pushing through everything else though.

SpiderHyphenMan posted:

People who were teenagers during the original series and who watch for the very occasional moments where Korra does what Avatar did so well: transcend the medium of cartoon for children and become something undeniably greater.

I'm not even sure I necessarily disagree with this but it's probably the single most pretentious, insufferable way you could possibly have phrased it.

Is there any show on TV with cinematography anywhere as close to the quality of Breaking Bad? I feel that even if the acting, writing, and story had all been bad, the show would still have been mesmerizing just due to it's creative camera work and incredible landscapes. Google images

Hannibal and Mad Men are the best examples I can think of off the top of my head.

Irish Joe nominating The Talking Dead as best show of 2013 shows he is still relevant in the modern era

To the contrary, that just sealed my opinion of him. The Talking Dead win (and the rest of that list) was just boring and lame because no one would actually think that. It was pandering to our expectations because we celebrated and encouraged his intentionally terrible opinions. Irish Joe was better when you could at least pretend there was a real person behind that.

Apparently this is premiering on NBC tomorrow, and all I can think of is this.

quote:

Working the Engels

In this family comedy, a family of ne'er-do-wells must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them a mountain of debt.

The Engels must all go to work running Dad's storefront law firm, with one minor problem: daughter Jenna Engel is the only one who is qualified to practice law. Unfortunately for Jenna, this also means taking on her eccentric relatives as co-workers. Ceil, the self-absorbed and overly dramatic but fiercely protective mother works as the firm's paralegal; Sandy, a former pill-popper who has never worked a day in her life, is the receptionist and first line of defense at the firm; and Jimmy, a petty criminal and bad boy who is utterly devoted to his family, is the firm's investigator. Jenna, the youngest sibling and "the good one," becomes the unlikely family patriarch, running the law firm and keeping her crazy family together.

It's not pretty, but it's family.

I was just shocked that Daniels won for the Newsroom. I couldn't name a single person who even watched that show over the other Best Actor nominations.

It's because HBO has a shitload of voters. I wonder if they'll all pool for McConaughey. If they don't, I expect Cranston to take it.
