Before I die, I WILL have a book-case that unlocks when you tilt the right book and opens into a secret office.

The unofficial Ayo Edebiri week on Hollywood Handbook was a delight. You know a guest has good chemistry with The Boys when she sticks around for an ad read and wanders back in to do the Pro Version as well.

Comic book superheroes. There, I said it. I grew up on comic books, I was as big a superhero fan as anyone. But enough already. Also post-apocalypse dystopian society stories. These two genres used to be at (least nominally) metaphors for real world issues. Now they’re just endlessly self-referential circle jerks.

Right? I had high hopes for the movie being a classic English Country House Murder, and had even concocted a (totally plausible! Yes!) theory of how and why Edith could murder Henry Talbot. Alas and alack, but I shall not pay cinema prices for what should be a cozy xmas special.

I watched one episode and kept waiting for a funny looking guy to show up in magic phone booth and have to fight aliens in the basement.  It never happened.  Worse show ever

After briefly watching Downton Abbey I recall commenting that the show was about vintage clothes being inhabited by actors.

They already missed the boat on the stupid trend of adapting a single book into multiple films, considering it was supposed to be four movies at one point.

Superego, now there was a podcast. And The Dead Author’s Podcast, another seemingly-forgotten classic in this crazy modern world.

I can’t believe how many of my favorite musicians died by suicide. And they always managed to convey so eloquently the struggle with their demons, in a way that made it seem like music was what helped them win that struggle. Until it didn’t.

I’ve been talking about this phenomena for a while, but Faux’Neal is fucking perfect and I am stealing it. O’Neal was always snarky, but it never felt forced. Nowadays it seems like the directive here is “be snarky about everything whether you have any actual feelings or knowledge about it, and try and work in some out

Agreed! Hughes often gets in my nerves when he thinks he's being funny.

While I’d generally agree with you on the trope being overused, it’s framed far better than you imply here. This ends up being a lot more about Mike having developed into a genuine teenage asshole to Hopper than said policing.

Despite being hardcore bondage porn, Master and Commander is pretty damn good.

Jesus Christ, this is pretty much exactly how you want these conversations to go. ACTOR: “Hey, some shitty producer wants me for a role.” DIRECTOR: “Hey, I don’t actually want you for the role, it’s just that shitty producer. ACTOR: “Cool, cast the guy you want, I’ll make something up and get the shitty producer off

I get the impression the writer is just being pissy because he doesn’t like Russell Crowe and just assumes everyone else feels the same way.

I don’t think the gag is even very obscure. At the time of the episode, Neutral Milk Hotel was -the- Band That Nobody Knows About That Everybody Knows About.
