“The Owls are not what they seem.”

In TV on 2010/10/03 at 6:44 pm

Imagine walking into the Red Room… Not in your dreams or TP-geek fantasies, but in real life. How would you respond? Would you be able to predict your own outcome? I want to say that Dale Cooper didn’t, but looking back at the dream he had at the very beginning, did he know all this time what was about to happen?

I’ve just finished watching the very last episode of Twin Peaks (for the first time mind you). The ending is slick, it’s clever, it’s brilliant and ultimetely – horrifying. In a good sense. I know I’m not making any sense here, but hey, the show doesn’t either. Besides, the less you know, the better.

To be perfectly honest with you, I wasn’t all that impressed with Twin Peaks at first, after watching an episode or two of the series. Fortunetely as the show progressed, I had a change of heart. In the end, I too will conclude that this show is a must-see.

Here is a list of reasons why you should watch the cult series and also a couple of phenomenons that become clearer to you while watching the show:

– you begin to enjoy listening to the opening theme
– you’ll witness realistic escapism at its best
– you get to see a backwards-talking midget dance funky
– you start to fall in love with Lynch’s disturbing vision
– you get to see a giant talking in riddles
– you’ll write down the most absurd quotes as your all time favorites
– you agree upon, like most TP followers, that Bob indeed is one of the scariest, fucked-up villains you’ve ever seen
– you will become increasingly suspicious of owls in real life
– you start caring for the most unexpected characters
– you’ll start saying “damn!” in every statement you make (note: Cooper)
–  no matter your sexual orientation, you will eventually develop a crush for Audrey Horne

Indeed, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

2 ½ men.

How I met your mother.

Forget The
Big Bang Theory.

This is the real deal.

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of the mediocrity that is today’s television. When it comes to comedy shows, I don’t want the hihi-laughs anymore (actually, none of the shows above provide even the slightest smirk as far as I’m concerned). No,  give me the haha-laughs. Remember those? Where you laugh for not only seconds, but minutes? When your body starts to cause real stomach ache from the constant non-stop-laughter you’d been producing? Well, I’ve got the show for ya. If you don’t mind vulgarity, unsympathetic characters, political incorrectness and appreciate true-to-life conversations and overall brilliance – then this is the show for you. It’s Always Sunny in Philapelphia. Start watching it today. You may find it obnoxious, even disturbing at first (I sure as hell know I did) but give it a second chance. And third. By then you’ll already be hooked.

I can’t explain by mere word why this show portrays genius on a whole new level. So instead, here are some – OF MANY – excellent quotes that might trigger an interest…

Charlie: Here’s a confession: I’m in love with a man. What? I’m in love
with a man… a man named God. Does that make me gay? Am I gay for God?
You betcha.
Dennis: Hello, I’m a recovering crack head and this is my retarded sister who I take care of. We’d like some welfare please.
Frank Reynolds: I went on a manhunt once. I just got back from Nam. I was hitchhiking through Oregon. Next thing I know there’s a bunch of cops chasing after me through the woods! I had to take them all out, it was a bloodbath!
Mac: Dude that’s Rambo.
Dennis Reynolds: And that’s not the first time you’ve compared yourself to Jon Rambo by the way.
Charlie: [singing] Night Man, sneaky and mean. Spider inside my dreams, I think I love you. You make me want to cry, you make me want to die. I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you Night Man. Every night you come into my room and pin me down with your strong arms, And pin me down and I try to fight you, You come inside me and fill me up and I become the Night Man.
Mac: Whoa, whoa, whoa, Charlie. Hang on a second. I mean the first half of that song was kind of cool, but what’s with the second half?
Charlie: It’s about the Night Man, like, you know, like filling me up, and I become him, I become the spirit of the Night Man.
Mac: But it sounds like a song where a man breaks into your house and rapes you.
Charlie: What, dude? Where are you getting that from? Alright, [resumes singing] It’s just two men sharing the night. It might seem wrong, but it’s just right. It’s just two men sharing each other. It’s just two men like lovin’ brothers. One on top, and one on bottom. One inside, and one is out. One is screaming he’s so happy and the other’s screaming a passionate shout. It’s the Night Man. The feeling so wrong and right man, the feeling so wrong and right man. I can’t fight you man when you come inside me and pin me down with your strong hands and I become the Night… the passionate, passionate Night Man.

Awakening (but wanting to go to sleep first)

Okey, I need to update more regularly. I’ve thought about it, and ended up with this decision: one post every day. (UPDATE: every other day. every day is ridiculous man, my life isn’t THAT interesting.) And no sloppy posts either. Every one counts, meaning this one as well. And thus, I shall leave you with this illogical yet indeniably true fact: George Constanza is the most unlikable likable character TV has ever brought.

George: "I feel like an out-of-work porn star..."

You got it George.
