I believe the Star Trek 2 thing is one of the few running gags that originated in the audio podcast at the very start of the On Cinema universe. Along with the earliest iteration of Tim's right-wing persona (I think a long rant about how Obama was selling the US to Putin).

Also included the introduction of James Dean which even after DvD I can't bring myself to believe he was entirely let in on the joke.

The James Dean actor was in an early episode of Awesome Show (he was one of the old men who they try to replace the show's staff with) so I think he was probably familiar with the vibe Tim was going for. He was also in the really good 2005 black and white adaptation of The Call of Cthulhu so he's also had experience with being involved with reality-altering madness.

Keep in mind Trump was saying he was going to run for president in the 2012 election for a while (and had already done so in 2000) so it wasn't Tim predicting it out of nowhere.

Same, but the TV show of What We Do In The Shadows. Proksch is hilarious, and his characterization totally bleeds into his On Cinema persona imo.

When they had the scatting Necromancer in the new episode, it reminded me of K-Strass "rapping"

I don't think Beef House has been bad, bu this latest one was the first that I really enjoyed, largely thanks to how ridiculously dark the plot was, and how it was played for such dumb laughs. Also, learning that Ben Hur is Serbian.

New Abso Lutely show in development.

quote:

Doing Things Media and Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim’s production company Abso Lutely Productions have entered a development deal to create a television series based on internet series All Gas No Brakes.

Doing Things Media is known for creating viral Instagram content including the series All Gas No Brakes. The new television series will feature host and executive producer Andrew Callaghan as he take viewers on a journey to the most bizarre fringes of American culture. He will travel across the nation in his old-school RV to attend the most bizarre and outlandish conferences, parties, expos, conventions and political events in America.

On his journey across America, the deadpan Callaghan — in his oversized newsman suit– will encounter an interesting menagerie of characters including Flat Earthers, Furries, Border Patrolmen, MDMA-fueled ravers, Pornstars, among others.

For those who haven't seen it, All Gas No Brakes features Andrew Callaghan going around interviewing in a very deadpan style some very weird people. It feels very much like a blend of Vic Berger, Nathan Fielder, and a touch of Steve Brule, so I'm not surprised that Abso Lutely wanted to do something with him. I would definitely recommend checking out the Coronavirus Lockdown Protest, Night in Las Vegas, Don Jr. Book Club, and Flat Earth Conference videos:

That said I'd love to hear JCR talk about how he so gradually just fell into that role until it completely devoured him

Maybe it's different now that the show is essentially over but I know when it was still on, Reilly really didn't like to talk about his process with or thoughts on Brule because he thought showing how the sausage was made would kind of spoil the magic.

I finally saw Mr. America, and liked it a lot more than I was expecting to (though it was strange to imagine watching it with absolutely no context). I know everyone has already hammered home how Tim's campaign for DA encapsulates a lot of Trump-era politics but the only thing I'll add to that is that I thought the judge was a really overlooked part of that, even though he's only in two scenes. If Tim is Trump, the judge and not Rosetti is the Clinton/Obama/Democratic Party establishment analog. The authority figure who while anti-Tim, can't really oppose him because he feels boxed in by a duty to norms that Tim doesn't respect, clings to the idea of his loss actually being a moral victory because he upheld those norms that not don't matter at all, and spends as much time defending himself by calling his critics ignorant as he does speaking out against Tim.

Anyway by now that's probably the one thing I have to say about it that I haven't already seen talked about. The one-candidate debate/Q&A section was probably my favorite part overall. Or really any time Tim went around trying to sell himself to real people.

Can anyone explain this Tim/"Tommy G"/Qanon poo poo going on

Basically, a bunch of teenaged QAnon followers have just discovered Awesome Show and think the Child Clown skits are secret messages from the Deep State that Tim and Eric are part of the global pedophile ring, and Tommy G is (I think) the Twitter handle of the guy really pushing it. This also comes right after Tim started heavily mocking one of the QAnon people who's running for Congress.

Still think season 7 overall, and this episode specifically, was the absolute height of On Cinema.

I remember watching it week by week and whenever Tim would give an update on TCJR in the final few episodes I kept thinking, "They can't seriously be going where I think they're going...." And then they did, and it was even better than I hoped.

Anyone else tuning in to the Chrimbus watchalong?

I actually really liked the fact that they got DMCA'd for playing their own special.

But the real takeaway from it was that the audience for the Chrimbus specials were all supplied by a company that provides audiences to talk shows from the populations of halfway houses for convicts on parole. What a completely dark thing that I had no idea existed.

Detective No. 27 posted:

What I want to know is why Tim ('s character) decided to do a movie review show when he clearly does not care about movies. He's always using the show to promote his real passions which are his current vanity projects or scams.

If you go back to the original podcast, it originally was solely about movies. Both characters are relatively straight. Then there's an episode where out of nowhere, the Tim we know and love emerges, I think from some panic over Obama selling uranium to Putin or the like. So I think it makes sense that OC Tim began as a guy who was just into movies and then got redpilled, and that was the start of his entire life falling apart over the course of On Cinema.

Cold Milk Bottle posted:

Also the Rick Alverson movies The Comedy (starring Tim) and Entertainment (starring Gregg) are on Criterion Channel if anyone has any interest in seeing them, though they aren't for most people, even most people that like very meta/confrontational humor. The Comedy seems like an indictment on dudes who became huge fans of Tim and Eric in college and are also fully irony poisoned, starring Tim and Eric. Entertainment is mostly Gregg as a Neil Hamburger type being extremely depressed while touring the desert. I enjoyed them, The Comedy is worth it just to imagine all the dudes who watched that movie thinking it was going to be the typical T&E affair and getting poo poo on by their heroes.

Definitely also recommend both The Comedy and Entertainment as at the very least being worth a watch, as long as you know not to expect T&E or On Cinema type stuff in them.

Also The Comedy is the genesis of On Cinema, as it's when Tim and Gregg came up with the idea and started recording the podcast on the set in between shoots.
