I miss Community.
Of course, I still have several episodes from the end of last season on my overstuffed DVR (81% full right now).
I thought Revolution was solid last night. I'm definitely interested to see which direction the show is heading going forward.
Loved the fight sequence between Miles and Monroe. It made me think of Heroes and how they dropped the ball with Peter and Sylar since their fight scene never happened. (The stupid flashes behind closed doors that was treated as a fight doesn't count). At least in Revolution, they gave us something, so you know it's a taste of whats to come.
jd, do you know what lead-in Revolution is going to get when it returns on March 25th?
So...in that exit interview from Community Chevy Chase says something to the effect of 'so what, it's sitcom television...the lowest form of comedy'. Well, I saw the new Gap ad last night with him doing a horribly unfunny riff on The Griswolds...I guess shilling for multicolored pants is the height of comedy then. What a vomit. Elliot Gould is laughing at you Mr. Chase.
And I know this is heresy but Caddyshack doesn't hold up. Totally over rated. And I've yet to see an SNL sketch with Chase that made me so much as chuckle. Admittedly he was before my time so I've only seen a few.....
Aw hell I take it back.
Chevy Chase is obviously a talented guy and I've enjoyed plenty of stuff with him in it. I just think most of it is hugely over rated and I've always got the impression that he's an *******.
Love the thought process Doc. Really proud of you when you have one of those kind of moments. Yeah Chase HAS been good. Fletch for example. But he always gives the impression that he is too good for the room...and apparently that stems from the remarkable esteem he holds himself in. I used to be mad at Dan Akroyd for basically disappearing off the face of the planet(sorry...in his day, NOBODY could hold a candle to Danny) now, I am kind of glad.
but seriously... admitting Chase is a handsome enough fellow who knows how to hit his marks and recite his dialogue......
Is he really THAT funny?
For every one funny movie he's in there's about 8 that are terrible... and the movies he's really funny in (perhaps maybe not Fletch which I have not seen) are usually big ensemble pieces where he's not doing any heavy lifting. He's just a smarmy boring white guy.
He's the Dan Patrick of comedy.
