Alright everyone relax. If every episode didn't have something important at this point I don't know why anyone would be watching...

We'll discuss tomorrow.

There's that note that David Foster Wallace took for The Pale King, his unfinished novel, that made me think of this season of Twin Peaks.

"Plot a series of set-ups for stuff happening, but nothing actually happens."

My favorite theory coming out of this episode is that the season will end with an epic fistfight between Dark Cooper and Freddie Sykes.

I just caught up. This is such a funny image.

Those of us waiting until Sunday should probably just stay out of this thread altogether until then.

I like all this member number talk (seriously). But can we keep the leaked episode talk down to a minimum? I'm one of those assholes who considers stuff like it being an episode worth losing your shit over, and even being an episode you wouldn't want spoiled...to be a spoiler. Excited for Sunday!

I am also one of those assholes. Please don't discuss leaks in any way.

Did you get to critique the trailers, too? That's the best.
Yeah, but the trailers they listed weren't the trailers they played.

Side note, this is the first screening I've been to when they gave us full page scantron questionnaires to fill out about our opinions on the movie.

Did you get to critique the trailers, too? That's the best.

Other Media / Re: best stand-up comic

I'm usually pretty good with UK accents, but holy crap, I'm only picking up maybe 60% of what he's saying.

I was certain I had talked about my love of Bo Burnham's standup on here, but apparently not. I love Bo Burnham's standup. His three Netflix specials all would land spots in my top 5 favorite comedy sets. He started out as a teenager doing goofy musical comedy on Youtube, but he's since expanded and honed his craft to the point that he's doing standup comedy in what feels like a whole new way. There are elements of others you can pick out: Eugene Mirman's surreal absurdities, Demetri Martin's non sequiturs, Zach Galifianakis' "always in character" awkwardness. But there's such a virtuosity to the way he constructs a routine, the way he builds themes and motifs out of seemingly disconnected bits, that gives the sense he understands comedy at a philosophical, intellectual level that nobody else out there does right now. Even with all that effusive praise, I feel like I'm still underselling him, I love his comedy so much.

Bo Burnham is so good. I had some problems with him in the beginning but now i'm loving everything. I'm not sure if he's getting better or if i'm getting less pretentious.
