“Everybody needs scissors!”
I have now watched every episode of Nathan for You and it is quite possibly the funniest show on TV right now. I really don’t like the other show that Comedy Central paired it with, and I don’t understand why Nathan for You has to follow that dumb show. I’ve introduced three friends to Nathan for You, and each time I say I’m going to show them one episode and each time we end up watching all the episodes. I feel a little conflicted when I watch it, knowing that he is really doing these ridiculous things to these businesses, but they all have the opportunity to say no and for some reason they never do.
The sex offender episode is maybe the craziest thing I have ever seen on TV in my life.
I’ve only seen one episode of Nathan For You so far, but I very much enjoyed it. I watched New Girl on the train on my way to work yesterday and laughed like a crazy person in front of strangers, mostly at Schmidt saying “buttons” and sticking his head in the coffin after saying “I can do this ALL DAY SON!”
On my way home I watched The Mindy Project and I did not like it. I was also surrounded by small children who threw candy at each other and stepped on my foot twice while their mother/babysitter texted and acted like she didn’t know them, but I don’t think my opinion would’ve changed much on The Mindy Project either way. I keep thinking there are parts of the show that I really like, but every week I’m somewhat disappointed. I would watch a show about Danny, but I don’t think I want to watch a show about Mindy anymore.
I watched SNL this week with three friends, and after the Charlie Brown sketch I said “That was the best Larry David impression that could possibly exist.” They all looked at me confused. Each one of them thought it was really Larry David. Either my friends are dumb, or Martin Short is a genius.
I’ve really been enjoying Ben and Kate! I’m torn between my love of Ben and Tommy’s friendship and my love of Lucy Punch.
Joel Graham is definitely the best dad.
Needs more Vincent.
Also, the last half of this episode was one of the most engrossing half-hours of TV I’ve ever seen.
Ok, I most definitely heard a gun cock right as the screen faded to black at the end. Am I really the only one? Clock ticking, then gun cocking? No?
Does anyone know how these live feeds work? Will I be able to watch it in it’s entirety later on? My feed keeps cutting out and I don’t want to miss ANYTHING.
Tommy answered my question, I feel like I’m going to pass out.
First, thank you Videogum for introducing me to this movie over four years ago, and making me excited enough to buy it on Amazon site unseen. I say this in all sincerity.
Tommy, what is your favorite part of The Room? If you could go back in time, is there anything you would change? And also, for real, where are you from?
My impression was that he had the mullet because it was the only haircut (in his opinion) that would hide the fact that his ear was fake. He seemed a tad sensitive about it.
I just got visibly giddy at my desk, then had to lie to a coworker about a made up cousin being pregnant because that seemed better than admitting that my reaction was because of a TV show being renewed. Anyway, YAY!
“I need help reacting to something,” gave me my biggest belly laugh of the night, closely followed by “Annie, subdue your guest.”
It was also a great night for Renee Zellweger references.
Favorite lines of the night:
30 Rock: “I don’t understand your art, Kevin!”
The Office: “I grew up poor. I had little formal education. No real skills. I don’t work especially hard. Most of my ideas are either unoriginal or total crap. And yet, I walked right into a job for which I was ill-prepared, ill-suited and somebody else already had and I got it.If you ask me, that’s the American dream, right there. Anything can happen to anyone. It’s just random.”
Community: “The “Webster’s Dictionary defines” intro is The Jim Belushi of speech openings: it accomplishes nothing, but everyone keeps on using it, and no one knows why.”
I get scared sometimes when I try to sound serious and talk about actual news with coworkers that I might slip up and say “Did you see what the Silver Fox had to say about it?”
