This scene is very possibly the best bad acting I've ever seen in my life. I love it.

That's definitely a top contender for all-time great scenes, but I'm going to have to go in favour of this

The acting may not be quite as good, but the flawless editing and cinematography really push it over the top.

That's another of my favourites for sure. The soliloquy(?) where his... "acting style" is explained is magnificent too.

That's also really great. Dean Learner as Thornton Reed is honestly one of the most truthful performances to have graced the screen. Some may raise their eyebrows at the producer playing one of the leads, but it was truly inspired casting.

And let's not forget the funeral or the bike chase.

One of my favorite Dean Lerner moments is during "One Track Lover" when you can see him fumbling with the ice during the rap part. It's so minor, but it's the tiny details like that, stuff you don't even notice the first time, that really makes the show so great.

Sorry for the double post, but it's been almost three months since the last post, so I guess it's okay.

I've been watching a lot of Quantum Leap lately, and I absolutely love it. It can be kind of goofy at times, but it's really actually a great show.

I know that this is technically triple posting, BUT season 3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt finally came out yesterday, and I already marathoned the whole season.

Overall: really good season, and I'm really hoping for season 4 to be announced soon.

quadruple posting but I'm the only one who posts here anymore so


I've been watching 30 Rock recently, and it's great. There's all of these little references in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt that I didn't get before.

I also watched Castlevania on Netflix, which was also really good. My one complaint is that I wish it was longer. Having only four episodes made it feel more like a movie than a season of a TV show. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the episodes, though.

Is anyone keeping up with Rick and Morty?  This season is so great.

I need to watch the new Twin Peaks as well.  I was watching a bit of it but decided I wanted to binge it when it was all over instead.  I was loving what I saw though.
All is silent in the halls of the dead.
All is forgotten in the stone halls of the dead.
Behold the stairways which stand in darkness;  behold the rooms of ruin.
These are the halls of the dead where the spiders spin,
 and the great circuits fall quiet, one by one.

I finished watching season 2 of Stranger Things yesterday.  It was fine (definitely ended stronger than it started), but it never got as good as season 1 was.  Too many sequences felt like they had no way to logically progress the story which led to people acting out of character in order to keep the plot moving (whereas season 1 only has one scene like that) and it's overall a lot messier and more meandering than season 1's extremely tight eight episodes.  My favourite part was definitely when The Duffer Brothers tricked Andrew Stanton into directing a Silent Hill fan film, though.

Spent the past couple weeks marathoning 11 seasons of Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Really good show. Its consistently really funny, and one of the few Ive seen that does dark humor well.
