    I'm def. going to watch this. Nostalgia reaches its apex for me when I think back to the original and me as a 5-7 year old.

    The new season of David Letterman’s “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.”

    Ellen especially is a great interview. Interesting, some sad, also funny stuff.

    I love it! One of Netflix's best shows. It is a dark (wink) and brooding show. Then I got my girl to watch it and now she is hooked too. We like to watch it in its original German with English subtitles as we hate dubbing. Cannot wait for season 2, especially after the "oh shit" ending of season 1's finale.

    i never watched Mad Men when it was broadcast. Been on binge. It's pretty good for the most part. More of a horror movie than anything else.

    The French film Slack Bay is an interesting and entertaining one. It's the closest thing to a live-action Edward Gorey film that I've ever seen. Directed by Bruno Dumont, its original title is Ma Loute. It's an odd one. Really good cinematography..... the framing of the shots are nicely done.

    Nice.

    I think Mad Men might be my favorite show of all time.

    My Mom couldn’t watch that show because she realized she had some kind of PTSD from having been a secretary from right out of high school in 1956 (until she retired in 2003), that the patriarchy and sexual harassment etc. is totally factual, even watered-down from actual reality of that period.

    I was in Advertising for many years, and the epic levels of drinking (also depicted in Augusten Burroughs’ “Dry”) was also factual.

    Yeah, exactly, I love that they don't try to sugar coat the time period.

    And I think I mostly just love the show because it feels like one of the most subtle and "literary" tv shows ever made. I almost wonder if they'd have a hard time making this show if they were doing it today. We might still be in the "golden age of tv" or whatever, but I feel like things have already shifted somewhat, where everything has to be pretty plot driven and exciting in order to be successful. Mad Men was a show entirely focused on exploring the layers of characters, and I kinda wonder if the time for that style of TV is passing.

    Good GOD, i fucking LOVE the Office. i don't get into sitcoms, pretty much AT ALL, EVER.

    But, i saw some episodes of it in like 2010, when i only had a handful of channels that would come in. And, that was one of the shows i could watch after work. i enjoyed the episodes, and, when i saw it was available on netflix, i decided i'd like to see a few more episodes.
    I wound up watching the whole thing, REALLY fast. It's SO. FUCKING. GOOD.
    It's funny, yes, but what makes it great is that it has so much HEART. There's a sweetness to it. Jim and Pam's love story brought me to tears a few times.
    Also, in a way, it's sort of a soap-operatic drama, disguised as a comedy.

    I fucking DREAMED about the show while i was watching it, and, have had a few dreams about it, long after i finished it.

    i've heard of people being obsessed with it, and, watching it 10 times and such, and, i get it now.

    It's one of my favorite shows of all time (and, it's the lone comedy on that list.)

    I’m totally addicted to “The Handmaid’s Tale” on Hulu and I was watching a recent interview with Elizabeth Moss and she said the same thing, that she doesn’t think there’d be a “Mad Men” now.

    watch Rolling Thunder Revue if you have any interest. it's fantastic! the music performances are stellar (Mick Ronson!!!!), i don't think Dylan was ever better. maybe as good but not better. the documentary stuff is basically a giant prank by Dylan & Martin Scorcese. Bob is again playing with people's expectations & preconceptions. enigma is his thing & he owns it. couple of clips below. i've always loved "one more cup of coffee" as sort of a deeper cut dylan song & the version of "hard rain" takes no prisoners.

    For NGE, Netflix apparently weren't able to get the rights to Fly Me To The Moon for the ending credits for the US. This is a major bummer.

    Is that just the US or worldwide for their dub? It is a pain...but i'm sure i can find a YouTube video and play that over the ending.

    The war over which dub is better is RAGING on the socials. I'm just here posting sketch's i'm doing of rei and auska lol

    I'm not sure in other countries. Don't think the English dub is even available in Japan.It also gets worse. It's not just the credits, it's also removed from scenes in episodes 15 and 21.

    Also, keep in mind each episode had different versions of Fly Me To The Moon.

    Ahhh OK, i will find out when i watch tonight.

    Makes me wish i still have a VHS player to re-watch the ADV dub, or silly money to pick up the DVD's...

    EDIT: Hold on, you can pick up the platinum collection for under 100...i'm REALLY tempted by that!

    I binged on the first 6 episodes of EVA and, new dub issues aside, the show has aged SO FUCKING WELL! It just gets the characters and what they are going through spot on! It's been a good 15 years since i last watched it but it's just so much better then i remember (and i remember it being great!)
