Extra Hot Great

Recommended Posts


I stopped watching "Supernatural" after the original five-season arc ended, but I maintain that the good episodes of that show are so good that they're worth wading through a sea of mediocrity for. Though most of them were written by Ben Edlund and can be tracked down that way.

When I saw y'all's twitter chatter about "Nightman" I couldn't believe it was happening. I saw ("watched" would be the wrong word) more episodes of that show than I care to say. . . mostly because I had the hots for Matt McColm, despite his terrible 90s hair. I could still tell you more about his career than anyone but his mother has business knowing.

The Night Man credits are amazing. There's so much that seems to be happening in them, but no indication why any of it matters.  Who are those people are? What is their relationship with Night Man? What is up with his red eye in the suit? Why is he so cautious when he's stepping out of the comic book frame? Could he fly a helicopter before he was Night Man? How does an actor deserve an "and" if no one's ever hear of him?

I will miss The Littlest Hobo updates, but I need answers.

I feel like I may have watched Nightman in my wayward youth.  It looks vaguely familiar.  Then again,I was an only child and watched way too much shit as a kid that I should not have been watching.  This may have been one of those shows.....

Also, TWO people of color in the main cast....impressive.  I may have to watch the pilot, if only to see Taylor Dane.

I like how the Night Man pretend defense conference is called "Millennium 21". Like, that's the year 22001, guys. They wanted to mash up "the new millennium" with "century 21" and produced something that was neither. (Also, how lucky they were to be anti-gravitating over water when the batteries died. If they had been over land, that would have been a quick end to the series right there.)

I too loved Bent and wished NBC had been smarter about it.

Yes! I just did a rewatch of Bent a few months ago and I got sad about it all over again. It was SO GOOD. NBC, you blew that one big time.

Oh, no denying there's racism but relating it to why people can't get laid denigrates the issue. Peace out.

oh, haha! That's fair, but also, you shouldn't take anything we say about Married At First Sight too seriously.

Listening now. Not sure I'd put that particular episode of Black Mirror last, but not sure where else I'd put it either. The first story-within-a-story was too "torture porn" for me, but I liked where the episode ended up. And @Sarah D. Bunting is right about about how gutpunch-y "monkey needs a hug" was :(

I have no recollection of Night Man. My sister and I just ponied up the $4 to watch the first two episodes. Those of you who did not bother with the second episode missed the most amazing David Hasselhoff cameo ever. It's all rubbish of course.

I've never watched Supernatural and doubt I ever will. But thanks for the canon submission. I did watch that episode and enjoyed it immensely. I think they nailed the tone of the different tv shows very well. Anything that makes fun of CSI: Miami and David Caruso in particular is a win in my book.

The guy who played the doctor in Black Museum was Daniel Lapaine, who was the hot South African guy that Toni Collette marries in Muriel's Wedding. I guess he's probably done some other work, but that's the most important credit in my mind.

Do you really want to prank Jack Bauer? Guy can kill people while having a heart attack. Posing as a terrorist while he's sleeping is a quick way to get your neck snapped, which would probably ruin most slumber parties.

I only recognized him as Rob's shitty friend on Catastrophe! Since Muriel's Wedding, his face has really...spread.

Yeah, I did not recognise him at all.

FYI: the embedded episode is different from what the page advertises (though the Google Play link does take you to the right one).

Pretty sure the past award for a Grossworth Equalizer Challenge sweep was double points.

It's double for winning the GEC unless you meant double THAT (4x). Maybe the answer is the friends we made along the way.

Based on The Crown's approach, the show should be about Edith Roosevelt, so it could actually focus on her husband Prince Phillip Teddy Roosevelt and her sister wild child stepdaughter Alice Roosevelt.

Hey guys. I'm Rodney ****. I have to see if I still have the file. I may not have it. It's been so long I forgot I made it. If I don't have it I will try a re record.

As to the title of the episode "Crocodile" - I suspect it's a reference to Captain Hook and the crocodile that follows him everywhere to get another bite of him? I could be wrong (I haven't watched that episode yet), but after listening to the podcast, that seems to make the most sense from the episode description, @Sarah D. Bunting. I may be wrong, but that was my first thought in listening!

All this "It's not the winning, it's the taking part" sounds damn un-American to me!

There is no NightMan forum ( ... yet), so I will have to post here.

Why. Are. The. Episode.  Titles.  Just -- why are they? Why.

 

They are all pop/rock song titles, like "Takin' It To The Streets" and "Lady in Red" and "Do You Believe in Magic."

I think this author of a Vox review of the episode has a nicely plausible guess (https://www.vox.com/culture/2017/12/29/16808458/black-mirror-crocodile-recap-season-4-review):

"But as in many of the series’ nightmarish episodes, “Crocodile” takes place in a near future in which we’ve finally figured out how to tap into, record, and even manipulate our memories. Crocodile cognition isn’t my particular specialty, but digging around a bit, I discovered that crocodile brains are apparently almost entirely limbic, which means they comprise the systems that house memories and the functions that support those memories, like smell and emotion."

I'm so glad I grew up in New Jersey and am almost the same age as Sarah D. Bunting if only because I understand nearly all of her allusions. I knew exactly who she meant when she said "Pathmark Guy."

This was my first impression on the title because the main character cries a lot but still keeps killing in a ruthless and cold manner.

Okay, the obvious choice is Don Draper on the front, and on the back a tableau of Don and Peggy in his office.

Because that's what the money is for.

Great Kimmy Schmidt discussion. (And the nonac music, with Sarah's infectious laughter, is always a delight.) Dave's comment that Tina Fey is being stubborn rather than ignorant seems spot on.

L.A. to Vegas is one of those shows that amuses me and occasionally makes me chuckle. When it goes off, I've enjoyed it. Then I forget about its existence.

My favorite things about The Marvelous Mrs Maisel: the wardrobe and the sets. They are beautiful. I enjoy getting a peek into vintage details like her workout routine at the health club.

I don't think Midge broke up with Joel over the stolen material. He actually left her after they fought. Plus, he was having an affair.

Yep. I love Tina Fey, but she knows better than this; she just doesn't want to admit she's wrong. It's disappointing.

Tina Fey has always gotten a pass on shit she doesn't deserve a pass on. Consider: two shows on the same network, the same night, and the one about small-town government in Indiana had more queer recurring characters/stories than the one about the entertainment industry in New York. Only one of those shows had a main-credits cast member who had a bit in his standup routine about how he would kill any son of his who turned out gay, yet both of them won GLAAD media awards.
