'Better Call Saul' Renewed for Fourth Season at AMC

'Better Call Saul' Renewed for Fourth Season at AMC

No mention of final season. Assuming this will go five like Breaking Bad.

I'd love to see the story go up until BB and then jump ahead and pick up with Jimmy in Omaha at the Cinnabon.

I feel like there could have been two completely separate shows:

"Better Call Saul" and "Nacho Supreme w/ Mike n' Gus"

They signed Gus until season six.

Butters is usually a voice of reason in South Park, but he can be surprisingly dark at times

Butters is usually a voice of reason in South Park, but he can be surprisingly dark at times

I dated a girl that could do the best impression of butters you would ever hear... it was fucking amazing ... like if she needed to distract me from anything she could just whip out a "Well geezzzee I dunno fellas" and I would be rolling on the floor laughing while she committed whatever social crime she had to.

You: hey babe let's have sex Her: Well geez I dunno fella

midsex You: almost done Her: oh goodie the milk is almost here

Who's the boy that can laugh at a storm cloud?

Turn a frown into a smile for free?

Who's the kid with a heart full of magic?

Everyone knows it's Butters!

Yes it's definitely dark, but he's not saying for the purpose of being dark, I think more than anything it's just honest. The reason butters is my favorite South Park character is he's almost always able to leave a bad situation with a good result, simply because he's always trying to do the right thing. Yes there are exceptions, like a ninja star to the face, for example, but I noticed this theme with butters after a lot of episodes where the focus is on him. There are sometimes themes in shows that tell you nice guys finish last and evil people are just going to run the world, and here butters is explaining why he's just totally cool with that because he will still be happy as himself. It's a rationalization of why being good and being genuinely happy even though the world is going to shit around is still a productive way to live life. A lot of people will call that naive (which in most cases is the best and only way to describe butters) but this is how I choose to live my life too, or try to at least, and that's why butters is my favorite character.

I'll close with my all time favorite butters quote from S7 E14 Raisins:

Well yeah, and I'm sad, but at the same time I'm really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It's like, it makes me feel alive, you know? It makes me feel human. And the only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt somethin' really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good, so I guess what I'm feelin' is like a, beautiful sadness. I guess that sounds stupid.

Nickelodeon Will Reboot 'Rocko's Modern Life', 'Invader Zim' and 'Hey Arnold'

Nickelodeon Will Reboot 'Rocko's Modern Life', 'Invader Zim' and 'Hey Arnold'

Not actually reboots. One-off TV movie specials.

Thank you. I wasn't the only one who was able to see past the clickbait.

Zim doesn't need a reboot. It just needs more new episodes.

Keep the adult humor in Rockos modern life

The things they get Patrick Stewart to say on American Dad

Bullock: When da Vinci first conceived of it, he called it an aerial screw.

Stan: That seems a bit lewd.

Bullock: Well, da Vinci was a well known sexual deviant. You know that sketch of the naked man in the wheel? Blueprints for a rape machine.

Still my all time favorite bit.

"Sorry about the mess in the bathroom. My post-sex pee stream forked in half last night and got everywhere"

-S01E08 'Bullocks to Stan'

"Do you have any gatorade? I seem to have left all my electrolytes with your daughter"

Bullock: I have a fetish for family things. I know the word "fetish" makes it sound sexual... Which is good. Because it is.

The "History Channel" is airing Pirates of the Caribbean. This is the ultimate low

The "History Channel" is airing Pirates of the Caribbean. This is the ultimate low

It's not even the original one. I can't believe it. I'll never watch them again. I hope the channel gets cancelled...

So Ice Road Truckers isn't on tonight?

Are you implying that Pirates of the Caribean is fictional?

Bro they were searching for big foot for like 10 seasons and now this is the ultimate low? At least pirates existed!

Or Pawn Stars?

Silicon Valley Title Sequence Breakdown

Silicon Valley Title Sequence Breakdown

In the first season or two the Uber balloon was bigger than the lyft balloon but now they are the same size. Always liked that attention to detail.

For the first season the balloon was Napster inflating and deflating

Always loved this title sequence. So much going on in it. I knew there were references that I wasn't getting. Like the twitter execs, I didn't put two and two together.

Nominative fair use. Trademark owner can't prevent someone from using a trademark to refer to them / comment on them. As long as no more is used than necessary (hence the "nominative") and it's not used in a confusing way that would suggest sponsorship/affiliation.

Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) to be honoured with Hollywood Walk of Fame star

Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) to be honoured with Hollywood Walk of Fame star

You know what would be a better honor? Actually having his show be able to be watched.

His star will be placed between Sting and Ray Charles.

Should be on repeat, become like the 'Friends' of all Nature Channels.

I loved Steve Irwin, so many memories of watching the show with my dad back when he wanted to spend time with me

I really, really, really wish Netflix would bring back its star rating system.

I really, really, really wish Netflix would bring back its star rating system.

The new "Match" system tells me absolutely nothing about the quality of the different shows and movies. It also seems really off, with no relation to what I actually like or would like.

Edit: Lots of interesting points. My theory is that with the rise of Netflix Original programming, they don't want their new shows getting "downvoted" too badly. Edit Addendum: I actually think the lack of rating system is making me less likely to try the new original programming.

Edit: I guess it's Amy Schumer's fault. Leather Romper for the loss.

"Hitler? Thumbs down. Drinking orange juice after you brush your teeth? Thumbs down." - Bill Burr

I rate stuff significantly less than I did before because I'll only thumbs up or down if I really liked or really disliked something; there's no middle ground.

I really really really wish they'd give me a way to remove show's from the "Continue Watching" list.

I dislike Netflix trying to predict what I like. Just tell me the IMDB rating.

This always cracks me up too.

This is, for me, a GoaT TV moment. Jim Rash is dynamic as a writer, but simply delightful as an actor.

I had to rewind the DVR multiple times when this aired, because my SO and I were in tears laughing so hard. We still bust sections of this rap out spontaneously.

I love it when Troy is dancing around and says "I don't know what to do, my whole brain is crying!"

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later | Official Trailer | Netflix

Somehow the cast getting older just makes it even better and more absurd.

this clip from Clueless...

Same with Paul Rudd, he genuinely doesn't look much older than he is in

Holy shit I didn't even know this was happening. I loved the movie and the show. Hopefully they didn't show all the cameos in the trailer, Cera and Pine were great surprises in First Day of Camp.

Especially for the first day of camp season. All actors aged 15 years and played characters 2 months younger than original
