How it’s Made
How It's Made is both one of the most interesting shows I've ever seen and at the same time one of the most sleep-inducing. It's amazing.
Sleep-inducing you say…? I mean it’s 5:25 in the morning so worth a shot, thanks!
Lol. Watching this on day time tv while sick from school or in hospital.
Watching it in waiting rooms was always tough. You get called in when they are like halfway through something and you're just like "Well, I guess I will never know how they finish making watch bands now."
They test them by slapping them against a wet rock. You're welcome.
Idk enough about watch bands to know if you are joking
On this episode of How It's Made: wool socks, fire extinguishers, and chandeliers
The viewer: *Hmm! Yes, I need to know this.*
I always love how random the episodes are.
On this episode of How It's Made: armoires, excavators and ouija boards.
...marshmallows, bicycle wheels, and clay ducks.
I think maybe they just pick things that happen to fit in the time frame of the show. Like, the first one is 8 minutes of the 22 allotted, then they start looking for a couple others that fit the rest.
Am I forever cursed to read a list of literally any three objects in *that* voice?

Edit: Thank you all for so much awards and up votes you guys made my day 🙏
And Blue Planet. Inspired me to become a Marine Biologist
Edit: thank you so much! My first ever award
The sea was angry that day, my friends
“He’s converting to Judaism for the jokes.”
“Does that offend you, as a Jew?”
“No, it offends me as a comedian!”
In that moment, I WAS a marine biologist!
Over the Garden Wall
Rewatch it every year in October. It is just so damn perfect. The aesthetic of every episode, some being more cozy, others closer to horror and some just surreal, the way the story unfolds and the questions it leaves. That single frame you get of the Beast right at the end being just long enough to enhance both the horror and the mystery, I love that show.
The Beast's entire design and voice is incredibly effective

Ain’t that just the way

**Bob Ross - The Joy of Painting (Full Episodes)**
^(*Bob Ross* (Last updated on Dec 14, 2018))
> You've seen him before. He's the soft spoken guy painting happy clouds, mountains and trees in about twenty-six television minutes, using big house painting-type brushes and cooing soothing "you can do its" to the audience. Bob Ross' The Joy of Painting is the most recognized, most watched TV art show in history.
>> The official YouTube channel of "The Joy of Painting" and Bob Ross. Watch and paint along with every episode of The Joy of Painting! Happy painting!
`edit:` I didn't know they are out of order. here's the link to "The Joy of Painting - Full Seasons" playlists. https://www.youtube.com/c/BobRossIncVideos/playlists?view=50&sort=dd&shelf_id=3
Once a week, twitch streams an entire season of the original show (I forget which day it is). When they first started, they celebrated by streaming the entirety of it, which took nearly a month IIRC
Each weekend, Saturday and Sunday maybe Friday. It is random episodes each time I think.
How to with John Wilson
Hey New York
Agreed. What a fantastic show. I didn't expect it to be so reflective and poignant.
Fawlty Towers. 12 perfect episodes.
Basil the Rat will always be my fave - and I love how for each episode they rearranged the letters on the sign. Farty Owls
Apparently, "Flowery Twats" was the only true anagram lol
Wait, what! ~~Faulty~~ Fawlty Towers had only twelve episodes?? I feel like there must've been at least 4 seasons
Nope. 2 BBC seasons, 6 episodes per. Cleese and Booth stopped at that point, figuring they couldn’t get any better so why try.
Absolutely. Not a single weak episode among the bunch. But also like 4 episodes (Communication Problems, The Germans, Hotel Inspectors, Kipper and the Corpse) in my opinion are pretty much perfect writing and execution.
Basil's argument with the elderly woman in Communication Problems never fails to floor me:
Guest: “When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that.”
Basil: “But that is Torquay, madam.”
Guest: “Well it’s not good enough.”
Basil: “Well may I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plain …”
Guest: “Don’t be silly. I expect to be able to see the sea.”
Basil: “You can see the sea! It’s over there between the land and the sky!”
Guest: “I’d need a telescope to see that.”
Basil: “Well might I suggest you move to a hotel closer to the sea. Or preferably in it.”
Do you by any chance have a hearing aid?
A HEARING AID!!
Would you like me to have it mended?
Most perfect 12 episodes of tv ever made.
“Is this a piece of your brain?” When she conks her head had me in absolute tears.
Now I have to watch Communication Problems again.
“Is this a piece of your brain?”
Don't mention the war!!
"Yes you did, you invaded Poland" is one of the hardest laughs I've gotten from TV ever. We had to pause the episode for like 15 minutes because I couldn't handle it.
The goosestep got me
I mentioned it once but i think i got away with it
So, two eggs mayonnaise, a prawn goebbels, a herman goering, and four colditz salads.
PRIMAL - genndy tartakovsky.
I don't think I breathe once during the episodes. It goes from this quiet calm with a constantly looming sense of dread to this intense violence. It's Genndy's best work so far. It's everything that made Samurai Jack great turned upto 11!
His clone wars cartoon was also solid all the way through. Saw Samurai Jack somewhere in this list also.
Basically GT knows how to make solid animated shows.
Band of brothers
Without a doubt, one of my favorite series of all time. Acting is great, storytelling is superb. Man, I'm gonna have to rewatch this now
Dude I remember thinking it was such a wild thing for a show to be like a movie, but take place over multiple episodes. Now it's the norm to have a show like that. Band of Brothers was the first one I ever heard about like that when I was in middle school.
I watch it at least once a year, phenomenal programme.
They're making a 3rd series too (The Pacific being the 2nd series). I believe it'll focus on one of the bomber squadrons over Europe
I know this isn't really in keeping with the perspective of Band of Brothers (American perspective), but I really wish they'd make a Band of Brothers style show about the Eastern Front of the European Theater in WWII. Without a doubt the most brutal front of any war in history. I think it could be interesting to switch off between the Russian and German perspective in that sense.
Edit: If anyone is interested in learning more about the Eastern Front, there are a couple series on YouTube for free. The first is called, "Soviet Storm". It's eight parts, I believe, and it's on YouTube for free. The other is, "WWII in Colour". It's thirteen parts, I believe. The Soviet Storm one is solely the Eastern Front in WWII. The WWII in Colour one is the entire war. Both of these are incredibly good. In fact, I think WWII in Colour is probably the best WWII documentary I've ever seen. Highly recommend them!
When I think about Stalingrad, the Eastern Front in general, read about it, the brutality seems almost surreal. Like, I just can't picture it. I don't think movies or TV shows could accurately picture it. You read the stories about what happened in Russia in World War 2, and it's just so far removed from the Western Front. Which whilst wasn't pleasant, like, damn
Yep, this is the biggest reason I think it'd be extremely difficult to do a mini series about it. The numbers of troops, the amounts killed and captured, the amount of civilian massacres committed by the Germans, and later, the Soviets....It's just hard to capture it all in a tv show. The reality was just so brutal.
Not to mention, it would be hard to find characters to follow.
this, if youre 18 in 1941 when the germans attack ussr; you have a 20% of making it to your 22 birthday at the end of the war.
The first episode is maybe my favourite of them all. Or at least it has one of my favourite moments, when the planes take off towards the end and “the mission begins” is playing. It’s just such a heroic moment, to me it really captures something of the monumentality of the task that these guys knowingly volunteered for. “The eyes of the world are upon you”, Jesus, shivers every time. The whole episode building to that moment gives it such a good pay off. I could never skip it even though the pacing is so slow compared to others episodes, particularly the next one.
Chernobyl - but it's only like 5 episodes in total so yeah...
It was going to be six episodes. That was the original deal. The writer, Craig Maizin, decided to combine two episodes to better serve the story/pace (I forget his exact reason). He talked about it in an episode of Scriptnotes and joked about how HBO was like, uhh yeah sure you know we pay you per episode? Hehe. Obviously everyone involved won, not least of all the audience.
I believe it. That show is paced to absolute perfection. Much as I would love more, I also realize it really can't be touched. It's near perfect as-is.
Gotta wonder what this feels like from HBO's perspective, especially given Game of Thrones was wrapping up at that time. "We keep offering showriters more money for more episodes and they keep saying no."
'We're BORED!' That's their excuse in a nutshell.
"Fuck you, we want that Star Wars money, gollum, gollum."
I do quite enjoy that their careers basically tanked due to all that, though. Tanking one of the most popular tv series in history after several very successful seasons is quite an albatross to carry.
This is the reason we still have hbo!
My girlfriend asked me if Chernobyl was a Sci-fi or not..
Alton Brown was one of my earliest influences in terms of liking and caring about food. I was a typical little kid who watched cartoons and disney for sure, but I liked old school food network waaaaaaay more. Alton and Emeril were two of my earliest heroes, fucking loved those shows.
Years later I discovered Anthony Bourdain, and now I'm a sous chef at a great restaurant. Funny how things work out.
Brown and bourdain are who got me into cooking too.
Wow. That's one I didn't think of but you're absolutely right. I'm not even much of a cook but I watched every single episode of the show. My little sister like to watch it when she was younger because of the puppets.
So sad he passed. That shit still stands up as totally hilarious. "I hear you're a racist now, father!"
He passed within 24 hours of the finale. So sad. You watch that last episode and know he's dead like a day later. It's so weird to think about.
I think one of my less know favourites goes:
Ted: "That used to be quite common, you know? The favourite son would become a doctor, and the idiot brother would be sent off to the priesthood."
Dougal: "Your brother's a doctor, isn't he?"
Ted (with no hint of awareness) "Yes. Yes that's right."
The money was just resting in my account
A good long rest there...
Should we all be racist now? What's the Church's position? I'm so busy down on the farm I won't have much time for the ol' racism.
Are you sure Father? There’s cocaine in it!
Maybe I like the misery!
You address me by my proper title, you little bollocks.
To this day if someone mentions Bishops in any context, my head voice says 'Bishops love Aliens'.
Still watch "A Christmassy Ted" every year. The peanut dream gets me everytime.
For me it's the My Lovely Horse dream. "We have to lose that sax solo"
I (an American) watched it for the first time with my Irish husband during the pandemic, and it 100% holds up. He's seen it a million times and I was seeing it for the first, but we both laughed at the same jokes and references. It's relatable across culture while still being wholeheartedly Irish which is amazing.
I'm American, first saw it over 20 years ago and laughed my ass off. Rewatched recently and it still holds up! Universally funny.
That would be an ecumenical matter
Down with this sort of thing!
Bishops love Sci-fi!!
I refused to watch Parks and Rec for a while because Adam Scott joining the show was the final nail in the coffin for Party Down.
Not his fault, though; Starz was dragging its feet on renewing for a third season and the cast had to find work elsewhere.
^(I eventually watched and love Parks and Rec)
Yes the interplay between Ned & Charlotte was cute and funny, but why only 2 seasons, sad :-(
Victim to the writer’s strike
Better off Ted.
I wish it lasted more than 2 seasons. I loved the corporate commercials.
Yes! The commercials were the best part! Remember the "Diversity-We're all One Big Family Here at Veridian" one, where all the actors were white?
I love that one, though my personal favorite is “At Veridian, we’re a family, which is why we work nights, weekends, and holidays. Because that’s when families should be together”
The episode where they had to hire extra white employees to trigger the motion sensor for black employees.
Over The Garden Wall
What we do in the shadows.
Every episode had me laughing.
Jackie Daytona a normal human bartender!
What the fuck?!
I would like one...human beer.
every year we do a motorcycle ride to raise money for charity, then this guy came out of no where and beat the shit out of us
From Tucson Arizona!
Weird for a show about vampires and supernatural beings to have an episode that randomly diverts to being about some guy from Arizonia though.
Not you, Gizmo!
"Fucking Guide!" had me in stitches
My stupid little baby
It's crepe paper master
“Look master, this one is pretty macarb.”
I'd bet money that the writers didn't intend for him to yell bat but he just did it on set knowing there'd be a cut there anyway and it stuck.
People say "Please! Dont pillage me!" and I say "NO! I pillaging everyone, you included!"
We got invited to the Superb Owl par-ty
My office has a Colin Robinson, no joke.
But seriously the It Crowd was Matt Berry's funniest shit.
I love picking out the real life Colin Robinsons of the world!
“This *fucking* guy.”
Everyone in that show is brilliant, but Nandor bitching about Colin Robinson (can you refer to him just by his first name? I think not) kills me.
Talk about a perfectly cast show. Everyone nails their role
Every time is see this mentioned I have to say “you’re eating verms”
I don’t think a single episode of **”Russian Doll”** was bad.
Blackadder. Rowan Atkinson is a legend.
"You will go far in life Jenny, but you will not be well liked"
Y'all all sleeping on Colm!
Colm: And, now, I don't mind a bit of a breeze, if anything I prefer it, but thon was aggressive. So, I says to myself, says I, "Colm, this is no day for a do..."
Sister Michael: What's happening?
Colm: ...for, when the bride arrived and, as I say, by this stage the wind was fierce...
Sister Michael: Am I dead?
Colm: ...I've never heard wind like it.
Sister Michael: Is this my wake?
Colm: Howling like a banshee, it was.
Sister Michael: Am I in hell?
Colm: So, the poor girl, the bride now, this is, she arrives anyway and isn't she no sooner out of the car than she's lifted up in the air like a paper doll and blown into a flowerbed.
Sister Michael: ...That's actually quite funny.
Sister Michael is probably my favourite TV character ever. What a legend 😂
The scene where the Prods are fighting w the girls and the 2 headmistresses just watch…
“Let’s leave it a minute” 😂
“Let’s say we two bad bastards hook up?!”
“Will you be my buddy, please?”
I know how daunting resit examinations can be, so if anyone is feeling anxious or worried or even if you just want to chat, please, please, do not come crying to me.
Protestant Headmisstress: Why it's everyone always wanting them to get together? I think we should keep them apart.
Sister Michael: I think we should keep them in cages.
Colm and sister Michael are so good!
I love all of Derry Girls, but I think this is honestly the best episode of them all. I don’t know how they’re going to top that one in season 3. From the wedding to Rock the Boat to the funeral to the pot scones, that episode blows my mind that it’s still under a half hour. Every single line is brilliant. It’s definitely my favorite.
I love Orla so much! I've rewatched every episode, several times - and once deliberately just watched Louisa Harland. She's amazing.
"He may be a lad, Jon, but I can offer you protection. I have a hunting knife."
“Don’t say ‘knickers’ in front of your father. He can’t cope”.
I love that every mention of Derry Girls ends up with people just posting their favorite quotes. It’s such a quotable show!
“Aye, it’s true! You can’t move for lesbians. It’s wall-to-wall lesbians out there.”
"Is she not a vegetarian, Da?"
"Sorry, you're right. Vegetarian, Brigitte is."
Sister Michael is a treasure.
>You know, every year I sit backstage listening to the singers and it really makes me realise just how talented the professionals who originally recorded these tracks were. Now, who's on next?
Or her dealings with the priest who shagged the hairdresser.
I'm the wee lesbian!
I heard that K.D. Lang on the radio yesterday. Christ, but she's some set of pipes on her. You're very talented people.
“I think we’ve all just lost a bit of respect for you there, Claire.”
Can't wait for season 3
Can we also include when the cast was on the British Baking Show Holiday?
I couldn't understand why sister Michael was being so nice and understanding.
"Jesus falls the second time. "
Filmed across the street from where I grew up. It really does capture 1990s Northern Ireland. Just a bunch of kids trying to grow up and have a laught whilst all the other shite went on around them.
It was a good show, but at times it actually made me quite sad at the realization of how fucked up my childhood was and how much my parents did to try and insulate me from the bullshit.
Freak and geeks
Didn't even get the chance to have a bad episode. :(
Still, what a great show.
bring it back netflix ffs!
If I remember correctly Fincher got busy with Mank and thats why there hasn't been any news about Mindhunter. Possiblity exists that there will be more but we shall see.
There has been news, which is that Fincher said it took a lot out of him, and he wasn't sure he could keep going at the pace he had been for the first two seasons. There might be a third season down the line, but not anytime soon.
I think we'll see season 3 eventually, but not for a few years. Otherwise Netflix would have just said 'its cancelled'. It could be like Fargo, they make a new season every so often but not on a regular schedule.
The Venture Brothers
Eat the pennies, quiz boy
*I ONLY KNOW HOW TO DO TWO THINGS. BRICK THROWIN' AND FROG BEING!*
He’s one of the best background characters in fiction. You mess with the Frog, you get the brick
What’s so weird to think about that show is there was only 15 episodes total.
And they are getting milked to the max on its YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrBean
The channel has ~30 million subscribers, there's a new video re-upload at least once a day, the videos get 100 thousands and up to several millions views. I can't even imagine how much money they must be making.
And then you find out there are multiple Mr. Bean channels: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrBean/channels
The British are smart is boiling down what they have into pure gold and releasing a small run of episodes leaving people wanting more. A lot of American series have a couple of gags per season and by the end no one wants more.
Part of that is by necessity as shows get funded for fewer episodes than a typical American TV season.
The IT Crowd. I love every single episode of it!
How are you disabled?... Leg disabled?
The episode where they see Gay The musical is my favorite episode of any comedy show. The moment Jen sees Roy in the wheelchair and moss behind the bar had me dying.
I don't like people, Jen.
Well that's not fair, Roy - have you met all of them?
I've met enough of them. People; what a bunch of bastards.
Moss: What OS does this have?
Policeman: Windows Vista
Moss: We’re all going to die
I’m just going to put this here, with the rest of the fire :)
