I won't pretend to know the ins and outs of Tom Cruise's relationship with the church and how he treats other people. I hope it comes out one day, hopefully when Miscavage's body burns in that stupid hotel.

We talked a bit about musicals earlier in the thread and someone suggested making a thread. So I did, and it's here - https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3878308 . Feel free to talk about musical episodes of TV shows too!

Tell you what, how about you go ask him yourself and not report back until then.

The reason it doesn't work on the Apple TV at least is because the app uses the native video player that Apple provide through APIs to anyone who wants it. Which, naturally, doesn't support whatever system of interactability that Netflix have designed at their own end. If Netflix rolled out their video player, this wouldn't be an issue.

If it's like the browser engine, Apple literally won't allow them to.

Nah you're totally fine rolling your own video playback engine, Infuse has always had one and now Plex is following suit. There's limitations, naturally, but you're not forced to use the API.

Bobby Cannavale sounds like the name of a gangster in a 90's Steven Seagal film. Probably titled "Killed to Death."

Yeah Goliath S1 was really good but I couldn't get into S2 at all. Nina Arianda as Patty was the best character imo

Similar to Hugh Laurie's Chance S1 vs S2. Loved S1 and S2 was just alright. I only mention it cuz I watched both shows at the same time.

I know we often swing into movie chat here, and a lot of people don't regularly read CD (I only swing by now and again outside of a handful of threads), but I made a site that basically mirrors the Oscars voting in case anyone is interested. I do a Eurovision voting thing in GBS each year, it's basically the same as that, except maybe a little less camp. Maybe.

So I played Bandersnatch (I say played instead of watched because it was more of an FMV game than a movie). It was interesting! I got a bunch of different endings before it was over for real and I got spit back out to the menu.

Cool concept, though it's nothing new really, just an old concept revitalized for Netflix.

One last bit of bad news for the new year is that Louis CK is now doubling down on being a piece of poo poo with some new leaked audio of a recent set.

quote:

They testify in front of Congress these kids…What are you doing? You’re young you should be crazy, you should be unhinged. Not in a suit saying ‘I’m here to tell you…’ gently caress you... You’re not interesting because you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? Why does that make you interesting. You didn’t get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way and now I gotta listen to you talking.

and

quote:

I’m so disappointed in the younger generation honestly because I’m 51 years old and I was 18 and in my 20s we were idiots. We were getting high doing mushrooms and poo poo…I was kind of excited to be in my 50s and see people in my 20s and be like these kids are crazy, these kids are nice…but they’re not!

They’re just boring. loving telling me you shouldn’t say that. What are you an old lady?...You should address me…as they/them because I identify as gender neutral. You should address me as there…because I’m a location…and the location is your mother’s oval office.


To counter that nastiness here's a picture of my kitten snuggling up with my mother on Christmas.

Almost 12 years late to the party on this one but is the rest of Veronica Mars S3 as bad as the first four episodes? If so I might just go ahead and call it. That's a lot of hours of TV I don't want to sit through if it doesn't pick up.
