Has anybody heard why there is so much crossover between B99 guests and CBB guests? You have the heynong man scene of course, plus I have never seen Carl Tart or Drew Tarver in absolutely anything else, ever, and they showed up as bit characters like 5 episodes apart. Not complaining - I love it. Have Aukerman or Shur ever discussed it?


Neil Campbell (aka the Time Keeper) was the head writer for the CBB tv show and is one of the head writers and producers for B99, so I would imagine that at least partially explains it.

TOCK!

Thanks! That makes a ton of sense

Drew Tarver is number 1 on the call sheet in his own show.
Carl Tart was on The Good Place.
Plus they were both in Bajilion Dollar Properties.

I'm surprised there isn't more talk of Succession in this thread. Just binged the first 2 seasons. Really enjoyed it, especially Season 2. Great dramedy.

I tried watching Succession as it aired in Season 1. I actually quit the show after giving it my customary 3 episode audition; at the time I just didn't find it compelling, and I hated all the characters. I just didn't feel it worth my time with all the good tv available. Then right before Season 2 aired, I went on a trip, and I decided to binge Season 1. Totally turned me around, and I watched Season as it aired for the most part, when travel allowed.

Yeah, the first few episodes were ok. I always planned to finish it but it wasn't quite compelling enough to binge right through, so I put it down after the 3rd episode for about a month and then picked it back up and quickly went through the last 17 episodes.

I think Season 2 is better because
Spoiler: show
Logan has recovered from his stroke and you see him at his full level of ruthlessness, manipulating Shiv to get her into the fold, completely breaking down Kendall to be his foot soldier, etc. I think Brian Cox claimed that that Logan orchestrated Kendall's betrayal because he knew the stockholders wanted him to take the fall, and this was the only way he could push Kendall to be the 'killer' that he needed to succeed him.


The characters are not very likable by design but its an interesting feeling to watch these detestable characters but still kind of root for them, especially Roman, Tom, and to a lesser extent Kendall.

I've been rewatching Cheers lately. It holds up surprisingly well for a show that began in 1982. The audience laughter is a bit jarring, but otherwise I've really enjoyed it.

I thought I was a big Cheers fan, but I found I enjoy Frasier more.

Kelsey Grammar is a piece of work, but I really do love Frasier. Though that's mostly because Niles was an all-time great supporting character.

what are everyone's thoughts on this season of curb your enthusiasm? the last two episodes were great but the others felt bloated and could've been 25-30 minutes instead of 40.

Started binging it about a year ago. And I was too young to have watched the original run.

But yea, it was "still" good. Probably only midway thru season 2 and then I've dropped it off and haven't finished.

The last several years I've rotated from Frasier - Monk - Columbo - Cheers as my tv show I watch after putting the girls to bed if my wife is not around. Columbo is wild to see A) all the huge guest stars as young people, and B) the huge length of time between seasons/episodes. The first pilot was 1968, then the first season was 71/72, and there's a whole bunch of late 80's and early 90s episodes as well. Freaking Norm was the bad guy in one of the late ones, and Matthew Rhys (The Americans) played the killer in the final episode.

Speaking of old TV shows, Hulu randomly suggested that I watch A Bit of Fry & Laurie which originally aired during the early -mid 1980s. The "Laurie" half of this duo is Hugh Laurie who played House.

One of my favorite long running characters/ sketches



If you're into British comedy this one is very good.

There have been some great episodes and some swings and misses, so it's just like almost every season of Curb. I thought epsidoes 1, 5, 7, and 8 were fantastic. Five ("Insufficient Praise") was one of the funniest eps I've seen in a long time. I also liked the one in Mexico, though not as much as the ones I listed.

Cheers is easily my favorite sitcom of all time. I loved every season but a few years into the Rebecca run to the end of the series was damn near perfect. When I was in college I got this Cheers board game for Christmas. I could never get anyone to play me a second time in the game because I rarely missed a question.
