Most characters in most movies are “only there to prop up someone else’s stories,” that’s why they’re called supporting characters.  Occasionally some of them are people of color, and in Tarantino movies they’re frequently historical figures.  There’s nothing inherently wrong with that.

From a neutral source: is Succession good or is it Ray Donovan that the AV Club has been hired to inexplicably lose their minds about?  Because I hear ZERO people extolling its apparently endless virtues apart from this site.  It’s like when they were pretty clearly getting paid to like Riverdale, except at least some Read more

Good joke as always, but seriously how is “dancing to Prince on New Year’s Eve” not the go-to answer? “Auld Lang Syne” didn’t stand a chance.

I do not comprehend what you just wrote. I'm not a stickler for grammar or anything I just have no idea what point you were trying to come to here.

It’s spetacularly dumb that they got the wrong company, but to me what’s even dumber is asking Amazon (or, you know, whoever) to “cancel” it. As if it were an ongoing show that we might see more of, rather than a limited 6-episode series that was released all at once, has already been viewed by millions of people Read more

There are a lot of shitty Baby Boomer musicians you could have implicated here, but Springsteen is not one of them.

I’ll never forget after watching that first episode thinking, “That was amazing but there’s no way they can keep up that quality throughout the season given that it’s on NBC.” But they did... for 3 seasons... ON NBC!

Peep Show works because of Mitchell and Webb. The concept of two underachieving losers teaming up was old news in the 1920s, just putting two women in the roles and moving it to New York or Los Angeles means nothing to me. It’s not even that well known in the USA, why not just do something new?

No they didn’t, not in the original broadcast. They did by the time it got to syndication but they didn’t bleep it from the original, nor did CBS bleep the word for years. I saw the movie Blazing Saddles on CBS and they didn’t bleep the word in that movie, either.  If it wasn’t on George Carlin’s 7 Words You Can’t Say Read more
