Find Me On:
Beautiful ending to an amazing series.
-Walt dying in the one place he felt alive.
-Jesse screaming and crying with excitement finally being free.
-Jesse’s wide eyed baby face making that box he so cherished cut back to his chained imprisonment KILLED ME!
This season has been filled with so many hand-over-mouth HOLY CRAP moments that it makes sense that the finale wouldn’t pack too many punches that we didn’t already know might come (killing the Aryans, the Ricin for Lydia). It tied up loose ends and concluded one of the greatest television shows of all time in spectacular fashion.
Thanks Vince, cast and crew.
This show is so freaking perfect. The way the theme music kicked in during that last scene…ugh I can’t wait till next Sunday.
My heart leapt as Jesse was running for his life, but quickly sank as I realized there is NO WAY he was getting out .
DId anyone else cry major tears when Todd killed Andrea?? OY WITH THIS SHOW!!!
I actually read the 40 days of dating blog from day 1 and enjoyed every bit of it. I eagerly awaited each day (they updated the blog day by day) and couldn’t wait to see how it ended. It was interesting and very well written. Maybe it’s because I’m a graphic designer, but I also loved the visual aspects of it, the typography, videos…
“Gabe and Max, Max and Gabe, wouldn’t have it any other way. Gabe and Max, 100 SECONDSS!!”

Unfortunately I was never able to go to any of the Los Angeles Monster meet ups but I have felt an odd sense of community here because of the hilarious, thoughtful, intelligent and sometimes beautiful words you’ve expressed here at Videogum. I’ve tried to replicate those feelings at A.V Club but it just does not compare (they’re weird over there!)I can’t count how many times I’ve laughed at your old man rants, and overall outlook on things. Although it does feel like Internet Papa Gabe is leaving forever I absolutely cannot wait to see, read, and laugh at everything you have up your isleeve. To say you’ll be missed is an understatement. I hate when people threaten to abandon something just because there is an abrupt change but I honestly don’t know if I’ll stick around because your writing has been what has kept me around (post Lindsay and all). I do know that I have a lot of TWMOAT to revisit!
I once applied for a Videogum internship that alas, I didn’t get but you wrote such a short to the point and sweet let down letter that, when I think about it, pretty much sums up how many of us feel about you. In it you wrote,
“Hi, I’m really sorry that it too me so long to get in touch about the Videogum Internship. We were overwhelmed by the response, and it was also the holidays, and we are lazy, and also stupid. Thank you very much for your interest! Unfortunately, we can only hire so many interns, and by so many interns, I mean one intern, and by hire I mean award college credit for menial labor. In any case, the decision has been difficult, but we have gone with a different candidate.
I’m also really sorry that this is a form letter. Oh well. You know that in my heart I love YOU the best.
I hope you keep reading Videogum.
We do love you the best Gabe and we await your firsthand accounts of the best of the best trampoline accidents and beyond.
Is this where I say goodbye?? I’m guessing no. I wanna say a good goodbye, I’ll assume it’s later. Help me Dr. Zaius!!
I upvoted you cause you’re frustrated. Cheer up!
Bet I got your middle name right though, huh??
No. If this is the last caption contest, why don’t YOU, Gabriel Des Moines Delahaye caption it?!
One of my AAAALLLL time favorite lines Gabe has deliverd in his pain staking task in viewing garbage for our amusement, came from a review of the Freddie Prinze Jr and Julia Stile crapfest Down to You.
Speaking about a reaction Prizes’ character had of Stiles characters “stunning outfit”:
“But even when it is not trying to be clever, and is just sticking to the most rudimentary of romantic cliches, even then it makes no sense. Take for example this classic moment:
Wow? Wow what? I know you are not saying wow about her JC Penny outfit. I know you are not saying wow because of her resemblance to a 47-year-old lesbian heading down to city hall to take part in the public city planning committee meeting to determine whether or not a Whole Foods will be approved for a land grant and zoning clearances. WOW.”
Uggggghhhh don’t go Gabbbe!!
Not sure anyone’s going to miss Gabe more than this guy:
I guess I should save my sentiments for the goodbye Friday post, but seriously Gabe…iTEARS !!
I hate to make this PopCultureGum but she is MARRIED…and she wore her wedding dress was black because ya know…being the WORST does not stop on your wedding day!
Or you could consult his cornrows
Well this is awkward
I’m so TIRED (yes, I’m yelling of the media saying she was fired for using the N word. As an African Amercian female her using that word, however long ago it was, isn’t a big deal to me.
My issue is that, that deposition made her overall CHARACTER look extremely faulty and sketchy. I would have loved to have heard an explanation as to WHY she thought it would be okay for black men and women to be involved in a “plantation style wedding”. Why do we keep focusing on the word, instead of all the other deplorable things she is actually being called into question for by a former employee.
If I see one more idiotic comment on yahoo or fb about “sooo..I guess no one has ever said a word they wish they could take back” UUUUGH The N word is the red flag. The rest of her supposedly behavior is probably why Food Network said “Buh Bye”
One of my favorite Lisa and Bart exchanges of all time.
Bart: You’re just mad cause there’s no clock in your hat!
Lisa: What hat?
No matter how many times I see that ep I laugh like an idiot.
Can I sign up twice?
The product placement was BLATANT and ridiculous. Although I was suddenly in the mood to buy a Nikon, Slurpee, drive a U-Haul and top it off with a Rooty Tooty Fresh N Fruity breakfast.
If you aren’t going to do it right, STOP rebooting the franchise.
But then again….
How are YOOOU doin?????
When I first started reading Videogum a few years ago, I thought Gabe was a middle aged balding guy because of his profile picture. I remember being so impressed that older seemingly out of touch guy had such a unique take on pop culture. A funny one at that too!
Then he changed his picture to Kyle Chandler, then I realized, I’m an idiot.
Worlds are colliding. Videogum mentioning one of my all time favorite t.v shows (Gilmore Girls) I freakin’ love it.
Who knew Sookie St James would become such a success. I’m really happy for her
Someone’s been practicing….
This is very sweet and inappropriate at the same time.
“The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side.”
“That’s a RIGHT triangle, you idiot.”
Louie trying to get the dolls eyes to move forward and fix it was the best 2 mins of my life. He’s such a good Dad. I love Louie!
