Hello new thread! Hope everyone has a wonderful new year. I dunno if I can ever watch as many shows in 2018 as I did in 2017 (like 112 when I finish the things I have left), but I sure can try!

Itís quite funny just how often people come into this thread to be indignant about a show not having a thread and said show will always 1. definitely have a thread or 2. be some rando garbage only that one person has even heard of

Based on a positive review from Sepinwall I started watching British show The End of the F**king World, which came out internationally on Netflix yesterday, and drat y'all this is some really really good poo poo. Very dark comedy - kinda like even more sociopathic teenage versions of the leads in You're the Worst go on the run. Check it out.

Oh, and there's also some romance and drama stuff too and it's pretty good. Why am I the only one watching this again?

I agree that Skins seasons 1-2 are good, but man it got so bad later on

This is completely unrelated to anything but man why do people always bring up that scene in The Wire where they just say "gently caress" or variations thereof as one of the best TV scenes of all time? It's....not good. Especially when you consider how many other great Wire clips there are.

Quick every-so-often reminder that Eagleheart s3, one of the best comedy seasons of this decade, is on vimeo in an uncensored feature-length cut: https://vimeo.com/87108881

doesnít include one of the eps, which was kind of a break from the serialised story but also one of the funniest ones, so thatís mixed. but this cut still works great. watch it everyone

That Han Solo movie is ostensibly coming out in 4 months and we haven't even seen a trailer yet. I have more faith in that lovely looking Krypton show.

It was already delayed to December, I thought. It will be either way.

He does have a reduced role in s3 but thatís the masterpiece season I posted the link to at the end of last page. Itís easily my favourite single season of TV to come out of Adult Swim.

It would be very interesting to hear the full story about what happened but we probably never will. I think troubled productions are very interesting to read about.

The strangest one about this one is the story about the lead actor apparently not being able to act so they needed to get an acting coach for him, because I remember one panel he was on where he was explaining how the audition process lasted months; if you're auditioning this guy for that long, surely you would've realised that he's not cut out for it at some stage in the process?

Apparently his performance is the major thing LucasFilm are super happy with so yeah either someoneís conflating that with his character in Hail, Caesar! or just making poo poo up

I have been watching some of Great News and am surprised I hadn't heard much from the people at SA. It's pretty much a spiritual successor to 30 Rock and Kimmy Schmidt, with Tina Fey producing it and the head writer being 30 Rock alumni. Although it's a little bit more generic, each episode has one or two gags that really catch me off guard.

Oh yeah I was actually gonna post this yesterday but I already had the last post in this thread lol

any 30 Rock fan who isnít watching Great News is doing themselves a massive disservice. Aside from one insanely misguided episode on sexual harassment itís been great.

Yeah we talked about it in the Community thread a bit but itís a good, open confession and apology. Itís very good of her to forgive him, too.

One of his main points is that itís so easy for men to not fully think about what theyíre doing, which is just so drat true, from the position of someone who.....used to get infatuations far too often.

Daveed Diggs is going to be the other lead in Snowpiercer, and he's one of the most charismatic presences I've ever seen. I think he's headed for superstardom. He already won a Tony for his dual roles as the Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in the original cast of Hamilton, and I saw him perform live last year with his alternative-noise-rap group clipping. He's another guy like Donald Glover who does EVERYTHING.

Daveed Diggs is fantastic which makes his completely miscast role in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stand out all the more.
