It’s like what you would do as a parody of a show. We had to go look up who wrote the show after we watched like, a 3rd of the first show? A Jimmy Fallon Show writer. And seriously, it’s like the cringiest Jimmy Fallon skit level cringe. It reeks of over production- some REAL out of touch people behind this show with too much money and nobody with enough power or instinct to tell them “this is a horrible idea”. It’s the worst kind of THIS IS WHAT THE KIDS THINK IS COOL THESE DAYS RIGHT? I mean maybe it’s a case of Bill himself trying to do something cooler or different but it doesn’t feel like it, it feels like he’s sort of trying to be his old self and do his old shtick but with a bunch of new forced jokes
all being forcefully fake laughed at by a
LIVE. STUDIO. AUDIENCE.
Yes, straight outta 1995, this show is filmed with a live studio audience that apparently has been instructed to sound as fake as possible.
And one of the worst aspects is the fact that it is all sort of done with the attitude of a PSA tumblr post, or “Umm, did u know” meme. Like, it has this super ham fisted slant to everything- basically the EXACT OPPOSITE of Bill Nye’s old show and really the opposite of like, any other time I’ve seen him speak. It’s hard to properly describe the childishness of some of the stuff we watched. Like example- I’m fully on board ‘climate change is real and govt needs to actually do shit about it even though shit might be really fucked already’- I even joked at the very beginning of the show that “it’ll go all silent now and zoom way into his face, while he yells CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL into the camera for 30 minutes” and dude, I wish that had been what happened. I wish they had just gone full angry old man with it, like Penn and Teller style or something. That, or actually be super objective and actually try and convince and TEACH people things. They do not try to do this. It’s meant for adults apparently but it’s the most childish take on trying to ‘teach’ that I’ve seen in idk how long.
The least bad part that we saw was when we flipped forward to the segment with the Veritasium guy on it, when he and Bill sort of do the talk show segment.. but the thing is like, they’re not teaching you anything then, they’re just talking about filming the previous segment, which was Veritasium guy interviewing some super farmers markety looking people at a farmer’s market and asking them what they think of GMO’s while a bunch of horror music plays… like, you know, “OHHH THEY THINK FOOD IS SCARY XD OHHH IT’S SOooOOOooOo SCARY XDD”. Like, literally the easiest joke to make……. and clearly they make the Veritasium guy also do this sarcasticy shit like, different from his actual show. It soooo reeks of over-direction. Like some fucking autuer is behind this shit.
I recommend watching just to maybe experience the slow dread that my bf and I experienced. WHY BILL, WHYYYYYYYYYYYY
I have to confess something. My 14 year old brother and I watched the first berserk movie on Netflix and then I looked up both movies on a anime website. You don't know how awakard I felt when it got to Guts and Casca sex scene. And don't get me how horrible I felt watching the third movie with my little brother. Like I know he watches porn but dear lord I didn't want to SHOW him porn!!!

So I’ve been listening to Welcome To Night Vale for the last, probably 3 years or more now, and I’ve never been able to articulate why I love it so much now. In the beginning I loved it for the same reasons everyone else did: the mystery, the horror, the absurdity. But I’ve seen lots of people stop liking the show because so much of that mystery is gone, or has since become mundane. But I’ve continued to love this show because of that familiarity. That no matter where I go, Cecil Palmer will always be there to inform me of the goings on of our favorite desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and strange lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep. In that way, it’s comforting.
In a phrase, it’s a home that isn’t a place. And it’s beautiful
My father was gunned down in front of me when I was thirteen years old; I was sold into slavery, but I lived; I came out a drug addict, but I got clean; I’ve killed dangerous men, and I’ve watched people I love die in my arms.
So I am totally hype for Samurai Jack: Season 5. I adored this show as a kid, but I wasn’t good enough to draw fanart that I actually liked back then. Decided to try my hand at drawing Jack and practice some lineless coloring, and I may or may not be a little emotional right now about how close this got to what I’ve always wanted to be able to do.
