I mean, Logan is the worst person on the show. He begot all the rest of them; they are who they are because of his monstrousness. That’s a given.

But Culkin is the most unlikeable because he never shuts the fuck up whereas Logan is content to sit in a corner and just yell “Fuck off” at random passersby once and hour.

It's great, actually.  So many despicable characters.

Is it Cage's presence that elevates this one to "Prestige" status? Would it be prestige tv if David Spade had been selected?

Isn't Nic Cage like one Leaving Las Vegas nostalgia trip (and Coppola adjacent-ness level) away from being a Sharknado rated celebrity?
He releases more direct to "video" movies than 90s Michael Eisner helmed Disney.
WHAT?

I have watched all of Better Call Saul.

Good show.

I'm on Season 4 Episode 3 and I still can't figure out why critics loves this show. Rhea Seehorn is kinda hot in a Virginia girl went to Mason understated way, and I like the ugly Mike character, and I'm glad (spoiler warning) the annoying guy from Laverne and Shirley died, but geez, is anything ever going to actually happen on this show? I keep hoping it turns into Breaking Bad but so far it hasn't.

I had this same complaint in seasons 2 and 3 but the show starts to improve dramatically around the point you are now once Chuck is not the central antagonist. The most recent season was incredible.

Did anyone else finish Schitt's Creek? I ugly cried.

is it just me, or did that show come out of nowhere and completely take over for 15 minutes?  i swear i hadn't heard of this show a month ago, but the finale made millions of fans crawl out from under their rocks... everyone was talking about that last show it seems.
It really was one of those shows where everyone seemed to discover it between season 3 and 4 on Netflix. If you look back at this thread, Kosmo and I discuss it in its first season on Pop but yeah, it seemed to attain a critical mass (especially around younger folks -- I don't know hoe many people in their twenties you have on social media but they all love it) around a year ago as it was starting to wind down.

if the show wasn't already over, i believe this would have constituted jumping the shark:

Tony Soprano dies in that final scene!   So why the journey song?

The Sopranos creator David Chase reflects on final scene, seems to accidentally confirm Tony’s fate

Chase: Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the end… Tony was going to get called to a meeting with Johnny Sack in Manhattan, and he was going to go back through the Lincoln Tunnel for this meeting, and it was going to go black there and you never saw him again as he was heading back, the theory being that something bad happens to him at the meeting. But we didn’t do that.

Matt Zoller Seitz [co-author]: You realise, of course, that you just referred to that as a death scene.

[A long pause follows]

Chase: F*** you guys.

Prestige TV before it was a term


Mike Judge is resurrecting Beavis and Butt-Head with Comedy Central ordering two new seasons.
