Technically that was Charlie Murphy, Dave just played a role in the segment.


And he did, I guess.

Somebody just needs to walk up to the white board in the writer's room and write "NO MORE SCRIPTS ABOUT PEOPLE TRAPPED IN COMPUTERS BEING TORTURED" in permanent ink.

Take a peek at the "Written by" column:

A guy making fun of Black Mirror for being derivative by stealing a joke so old that Black Mirror itself referenced it over a year ago is some next-level poo poo.



Heís not saying itís derivative heís saying itís predictable and repetitive.

So we've basically come full circle and game shows are about rooting for manufactured personalities a la Quiz Show all over again only now they're maybe not totally rigging everything behind the scenes.

Game shows have always screened participants.

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.

The ads for it were really bad and just on loving constantly.

I hated that show 2 months before it even aired.

Runaways was always nearly entirely teen drama, it just had Punisher sometimes.

The advertising for Van Helsing is really misleading.

The finale is perfect because literally for the entire run people were saying "This is about Robin not the mother". The kids are you, goons.

Except the show dedicated like three seasons to showing us exactly why Ted and Robin didn't work together.

And also that Ted's an idiot who would go for it yet again anyway.

I know you're joking, but I find it so strange that people still think that Hero's quality was affected seriously by the writer's strike. That poo poo impacted their final two episodes, at most. There's no excuse there for the rest of the season.

Or the 12 more that got cancelled?

I think a lot of them hate it because it's a mirror.


There are way more really bad books than really good ones or even just okay ones but for some reason this one sends nerds into a blind rage

I still don't know what the hell happened in the finale/back end of that season.

I think I read something that said multiple timelines but.. what? I'd say I should watch it again but honestly I'm not sure that would help.

One timeline, but portrayed as if 2 parts of it decades apart were happening concurrently.

I bailed out of the WW thread after like two episodes, it was getting insufferable. And the people screaming at each other over the two timeframes was maddening.

Producers go to the network that gives them either the most money or the most creative freedom. I donít think things like 4K video quality really enters the picture.

Or, maybe more often than not, the one that owns them.

It's been known he was poo poo for years, when he leaked private photos of her.

He's the one who did that? Still every time her name comes up (including here) some rear end in a top hat links a bunch of those.

Medullah posted:

I think he separated himself from Nerdist a while back anyway.

How long ago was the abuse? He himself has admitted he was a piece of poo poo for a while, though not to that extent.

2011-2014, significant overlap with his whole "I used to be a bad person" Hollywood redemption act gimmick.

"Half a decade" is now my favorite internet piece of poo poo way to try to make something recent sound old.

zoux posted:

Not saying they are similar but it just reminds me: a while ago there was an anonymous medium post accusing someone famous of sexual abuse, it was right at the height of the Weinstein stuff, but it got yanked by medium and nothing ever came of it. Does anyone remember who it was accusing?

Sounds like you're thinking of the Gal Gadot story?

Yeah that's who it was thanks. Did that ever get substantiated?

A few freelancers on Twitter saying they know the person who posted the story personally, and that it wasn't just some made up hit piece.

But also a lot of stuff linking to a possible obsessive anti-Israel internet stalker.

So who knows.
