Find Me On:
You just reminded me:. I have “I hated hated HATED This Movie” on the bookshelf behind me. Now’s a good time for a re-read, I’m thinking.
Well I’m unemployed, so it’s always St. Patrick’s Day as far as I’m concerned.
I had no idea Michael Flatley and I had so much in common…
I remember one of the first Sneak Previews episodes I watched was a review of The Shining. Been watching every iteration of their show faithfully since. I was gutted when Siskel died.
Ebert actually replied to an email I sent him once just a few days after getting hooked up to the internet. Truly the end of an era.
Really? So if someone offered me an olive branch, I couldn’t just start chewing?
Sorry, Aunt Ida, I want to be near the auto industry, I’m sick of hairdressing.
Nothing to do with it? Instead of drowning that abomination in a vat of quicklime and then setting the building on fire (just to make certain), you pretty much midwifed a cultural apogee. I congratulate you, sir.
The de-facing was de-lightful.
Gabe, please continue these recaps in order to spite a friend of mine who tells me constantly how terrible this show is, and yet often peppers his conversations with Family Guy quotes.
When I was a kid, action figures were just crude, poorly painted lumps of plastic. If I’d walked into a hobby store and seen the likes of Davros, or SV7 and D84 I would’ve wet my pants.
I love this story, even though it reminds me of that terrifying dumpster scene in Mulholland Drive.
For just a second, I read that as “Maybe, but they won’t be Syphilis” and I thought “Way to find the silver lining, Edith!”
HBO wants to know if you’ll accept a consultant’s fee for that Egyptian mummy idea. I know I’m sold.
I always enjoy Gabe’s theater-going stories. Like that one time he went to a Tyler Perry movie by himself and brought a fresh fruit snack, but was sufficiently self-conscious about eating said fresh fruit snack that he kept it hidden until the lights went down.
:Spanish flu? Is that some kind of aphrodisiac?” – Dr. Clarkson.
Definitely not guilt-free dessert.
Homeowner: Did you just take a bite out of my pizza? Who are you?
SMF: I’m a sexy mothafuckaa…
My favorite YCMIU of all time – John Waters And Justin Bieber Play Air Hockey. Very good writing with a surprisingly touching mention of Edith Massey thrown in.
Holy crap – 213 comments on that thread!
Until she switches over to the harp, then she’s an animal.
Or a comic strip hero? One of my favorite Peanuts strips showed Charlie Brown walking home, and at every turn he’s being teased and laughed at by Lucy and the other kids in the neighborhood. When he gets home and turns on the radio, an avuncular voice asks “…is there anything more wonderful than the gay laughter of little children?”. The last panel shows him kicking the radio in fury.
Thanks for the recaps, Gabe. Always a fun chaser to a show I find myself looking forward to, and then end up glancing at the clock for the whole hour wondering when the action is going to pick up.
I always just assumed that zombie got her pant leg caught in the bike chain.
I know, right? This show could be so much better with fewer zombies and more existentialist hand-wringing.
What worries me is the loaded gun that Carl dropped in the woods. Someone could get really hurt.
Not that this matter is of vital importance, but I think the kid in barn is named Randall, not Russell. And yeah, every time I see him put pressure on that leg WHICH WAS ALL BUT EVISCERATED last week, I think “aw, c’mon, show”.
Believe it or not, I was excited about the Candy Land movie adaptation. Now that Adam Sandler’s got his sad, bloated mitts on the project, not so much.
Dr. Suess is the new Dr. Spock.
