Captain Boring of the S.S. Shut Up
Thanks, Videogum. It’s been a lot of fun.
Well this is the worst.
I was definitely a little confused as to why there was not one, but two scenes of emotional reunions with old flames. They were well done, but also not all that true to the way the show has ever gone. Then I found out Judd Apatow co-wrote the episode and it made a bit more sense. I’m not going to pretend the scene with Adam wasn’t well done, or even exciting to watch, but it just didn’t make all that much sense.
I also think in general, the show just tries to pack to much into each episode, so that when the season ends, so many story arcs feel unresolved, or resolved in a very unsatisfying way.
But it was still enjoyable enough this season. Hopefully with 12 episodes and the advantage of hindsight, next season will be a little tighter.
I haven’t read the article yet, but is this public handjob from the date or another time? Either way, my weekend is now ruined.
To be fair, she did pen one of the enduring lines of our generation, as seen in the photo above. Those activities she described are what a writer does with all of their royalty money. Also, in this scenario, Gwyneth Paltrow thinks they are only called “royalties” for her because she’s special and lives in a castle (AKA lorry), probably.
David Arquette: Everything but the Cox.
By far my favorite tweets of last night were from Victoria Jackson:
9:02: “I can’t stop crying.”
9:02: “America died”
9:07: “I can’t stop crying. America died.”
Haha what is the last tweet about?? I’d like to imagine that at 9:06, she was like, I don’t get it, why didn’t those tweets make me feel any better?? Maybe this will help…
Tarzan 3D looks like if Jurassic Park 3 happened on Pandora, if that makes sense.
Yes! I was just writing the same thing! I haven’t commented in ages, and I had to sign in and comment just because this is so incredible. Wow, Gabe. Kahdooz!
That kids parents when they woke up that morning: “Theme of the day: Saucy!!”
Yes!! Read everything by David Mitchell, but Black Swan Green first!
Oh no! Not Russell Brand! Take my eyes, but not Russell Brand!
As long as Sherlock or Luther wins Outstanding Miniseries, we all win!
I was going to post about the notion of “If you don’t want to get insulted don’t go to comedy clubs.” in Gabe’s post called “Nobody Likes Comedy”. I think that’s the main reason that comedians don’t consistently sell out venues even though it’s probably one of the best ways to spend money if you are looking for a fun night out. I hate that that is considered a given even though 99% of the amazing comedians I’ve been lucky enough to see never insult anyone in the crowd. They are funny enough to come up with their own material for laughs. It’s so stupid that people should be scared to be insulted at a comedy show, and I hate when people continue to claim that’s a thing.
You know this was Kelly because if Gabe did the interview, the first and only question would have been: “Where do you get your ideas”?
I’m assuming they are to bait you into getting him to start ranting about the knee-gro’s…
Are we sure this isn’t a young Max Silvestri using a stage name?
Wait…Hold on. The name of the show isn’t DowntoWn Abbey??? My head just exploded. Also, it’s a good thing I haven’t been calling it that for months…
Yikes, clearly the acting gene didn’t get passed on to little Chester.At least he’s a good sing…Er, at least his dad is rich enough to pay for his music videos.
I’d absolutely watch a show with him and Anthony Bourdain just reading a list of things they hate.
Holy shit! A necrophiliac! I better hide these ashes!
I saw an advanced screening of We Bought a Zoo, and if you sit through the credits, there is a bonus scene that sets up the sequel:
Also, “step improvement” is cool NYC office lingo, if you didn’t get that.
