Did you ever see the Christmas special that came out between season 2 and the Netflix seasons?

hell, half of White Christmas was a loving retread of episodes prior to that

"Tell that to Zod's snapped neck!"


i got on a Beatles kick today and i've gotta say, one of the big streamers needs to team up with the BBC and do the big blowout Beatles limited series that the story of that band deserves. I've always wondered about how a Beatles movie would look but I think you could make about 5 different movies about various parts of the history of the band, so it almost just makes more sense for someone to make 13 episodes and try and fit as many of their songs in as possible.

there are a million possibilities too. You could do episodes from the early days about John, Paul, George and Stu in Liverpool, the Beatles in Hamburg's red light district, meeting Brian Epstein/Stuart Suttcliffe's death/getting signed by George Martin, replacing Pete with Ringo all leading up to an episode about the day they recorded Please Please Me, and following that then you have Beatlemania taking over Britain, the British Invasion/playing Ed Sullivan, touring/making Hard Day's Night/meeting Bob Dylan and Dylan introducing them all to pot, John and George getting dosed with LSD by their dentist, playing Shea Stadium, making Rubber Soul, John Lennon opening his big fat mouth repeatedly, the final tour, making Revolver, and then you get into the really good stuff with Yoko, Clapton, Maharishi, Timothy Leary, Billy Preston, Phil Spector, the Stones, the Beach Boys, and Apple Records.

someone needs to get the gently caress on this now.

I've watched every episode. There are some similarities but I didn't think any of them were rehashes.

Like specifically with White Christmas and Callister - they both share a basic similar concept but the actual story that concept is used to tell is wildly different. Callister worked better for me than White Christmas did so yes I'm glad they did something else with that idea.

Way to completely miss the point. I assume you mean the person who said the experience ended her dream of being a comedian and his follow up was to mock the idea that someone's dream could be so easily squashed if it really was their "dream"

He was still 100% that Louis CK was in the wrong but that the allegations were hilarious as gently caress to read about when you knew him. The only little support bit was Chappelle saying "did they really have to take everything from him? Was he really as bad as Weinstein etc?"

This feels like they read a headline somewhere and didn't bother reading the story or try putting it into context.

Dammit, my wife and I were really enjoying our December binge-watch of Justified (her first time, my second), but as of today, it is no longer available for free through Amazon Prime. I'm just relieved we made it through Season 3 last night (my favorite season with my favorite villain) and only just started Season 4, which isn't the worst place to stop watching.

I always pay attention to those lists of what gets added to and removed from Netflix and Amazon Prime each month, and I definitely didn't notice Justified being removed at the end of December. Oh well. I just bought my dad the complete series on DVD, so maybe he'll loan us the back half for now.

So far Metalhead is the only episode of Black Mirror Season 4 I've enjoyed at all, though I'm like 10 minutes into Black Museum now so I'm not done yet.

I watched both specials but I could already imagine all the clickbait articles about how he was supporting Louis CK or attacking victim etc.

He really emphasised on multiple occasions that his comedy is meant to be funny and make people laugh, and sometimes its mean but its always funny until it happens to you.

I mean Callister was more an almost direct adaptation of I Have No Mouth & I Must Scream, only with Aatrek instead of a super computer.

It took an act of God just to get them to allow Beatles Rock Band to be made. Yoko would never agree to anything that didn't paint Lennon in anything but the brightest light.

I mostly agree with you on this but there are some good documentaries out there. There's the one Ron Howard did that's on Hulu about their touring years that's good, one on Netflix about Sgt. Peppers that I thought kind of sucked, and a rather lengthy one on Netflix about George Harrison that is very good. I've been obsessing over the Beatles for like a couple years now and those have been holding me over on stuff to see.

"It's just a joke, don't take it so seriously" is a weird argument for a guy who torpedoed his career because he was upset people were laughing at his jokes for the wrong reason to be making.

If you don't want your dead body seen publicly then maybe don't kill yourself in a public place. Especially one literally called the Suicide Forest because it's a place where people go to kill themselves publicly.

Unless the outrage is that the dude made money off of it in which case how is that different from literally any news or true crime show or documentary ever.
