I think this whole article is completely off base and completely misses the point. And I think David Carr’s tweet was perfect.
People need to lighten up. Who cares? If I ever got offended over some dumb internet meme then just shoot me in the face.
no you aren’t
It’s set in the 80′s
Parenthood is REALLY good. It’s on netflix. Get to work. So is Friday Night Lights.
Sheesh. I made a list about a year ago on IMDB called “the most entertaining movies ever” which was based on re-watchability and not on pretentious film school reasons. Check it out if you want. Or don’t, SEE IF I CARE!
Diving Bell and the Butterfly was great but it isn’t something any normal person would want to watch multiple times. It is gut wrenching. How about watching something like “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” or “Dazed and Confused?” I’ve seen those hundreds of times and they remain fantastically entertaining.

I really don’t understand why SNL is taken seriously by all of these websites and podcasts in the first place. Aren’t all the episodes a little “off?” It’s just not that funny.
