What are you watching RIGHT NOW?

Fri Dec 04, 2009 10:39 pm

Don't we need a dedicated thread for the movie/TV loving gerbils?

I just finished watching Watchmen, and I'm just blown away. I was expecting another mindless action superhero movie, but nay, it actually had a very interesting plot. For me, Watchmen sits above The Dark Knight.

Just finished watching the Montreal Canadiens beat the crap out of the Boston Bruins 5-1.

Considering I don't get a tv signal where I live, and I'm using my HDTV as a computer monitor, I guess I'm watching myself type this message. And to the side, I'm watching my cat sleep by the fireplace. :)

*gape*
I liked American History X, but god is it disturbing.

I need to return my Netflix DVDs so I can get new ones, but I've been watching a lot of Monk lately. Only seen a few random episodes but I liked it, and in a fit of boredom I've started going through the whole series.

Just got the 3 Chan-Wook Park movies I ordered.
"Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance" (2002)
"Oldboy" (2003) -the best IMO-
and "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" (2005)

I still have doubts on the TV show "Pushing daisies". Not that bad, but too colorful (litteraly) for my taste.

Just finished watching the final season of 24 on Netflix. I had never seen a single episode until I got Netflix. I watched all 8 seasons in about a 8 month time span. It was awesome !!!

Dr. Who. I'm in love.

I just finished Season One, and I'm a little heartbroken about Christopher Eccleston Leaving. Still, I do love me some David Tennant.

Been going through Ken Burns documentaries lately. In the Civil War now. Fantastic series, the best of his that I've seen. Learning a whole lot more about it than I ever did in school.

Just broke out one of my Xmas presents; the first season of SNL on DVD. I'm only in the first episode (Geroge Carlin, Billy Preston, and Janis Ian) and its clear that they went back to the broadcast masters.

OMG, the second SNL was hosted by Paul Simon. Art Garfunkel joins him (this was their mutual hate period) for an unbelievable Boxer.

I can't wait for what other gems await.

Working on Ep 3 now. Rob Reiner makes a great lounge lizard and Andy Kaufman's first SNL appearance makes me wonder why he was ever invited back.

EDIT: Break dancing in October '75 (The Lockers)? SNL was a trend-setter. Heh, Google tells me that Toni Basil was a founding member of The Lockers.

EDIT 2: Ep 3 is the monumental Belushi spaz-out to Joe Cocker. With each new skit I'm reliving my childhood/teens.

EDIT 3: Albert Brooks was the anti-funny in 1975 and nothing has changed in 36 years.

Just finished season 1 of Supernatural and watched Ep1 of Season 2 just to get the cliffhanger out of the way. Great show if you like goofy horror stuff that isn't really all that horror

Man, early SNL had a lot of Muppets. Crazy.

EDIT: You had to have watched SNL from the very beginning to understand how poignant and ironic this short movie was and is.

http://www.hulu.com/watch/97833/saturda ... k-in-anger

It played in March '78 and in March '82 he was dead. I know it's trite, but by God you had to be there to watch him live and to understand how far SNL pushed the boundaries in 1975.

OK, up to Ep 6 (22 Nov 1975). Lily Tomlin singing "St. James Infirmary" while sitting on a piano played by Paul Shaffer (even then wearing Elton John glasses) with the entire SNL band wearing nurses uniforms. Just try to tell me that that works in any other decade.

EDIT: Lily Tomlin setting the Patty Hearst kidnapping to music.

Just started season 1 of Lost. I think I'm about 6 episodes into it. It's a little creepy at times, and other times just weird. Definitely entertaining though.

Archer season 1 on Netflix. Yup!

Netflix also has Top Gear UK, which is next after this!

Warren Zevon's valedictory appearance on Letterman (courtesy of YouTube). A man who knows he's about to die still tossing jokes back & forth with a Letterman I haven't seen since the '80s. The deep friendship and the sense of impending loss between them is obvious, yet they both rise above mawkishness and have fun while having an extremely adult conversation.

The music don't suck, either.

At the end of the show back in the green room Warren packed up his guitar and handed to to Dave saying "take care of this". Dave was an instant puddle.

I've been watching Mad Men this week. I really enjoy it, but there is wayyyyyy to much relationship/sex/kjdfjkasljkl drama.

Watching Young Justice on Cartoon network at the moment. It's the episode with the flying robot monkeys. Just their constant laughing would be enough to irritate me.
