I thought hipsters were native to portland.

Fantastic use of the img1.fark.net tag.

So, an even less funny version of Portlandia.

I just got a great idea. A hipster slasher flick that takes place in Brooklyn.

/I better start writing.
 
2012-09-13 04:12:32 AM  
I liked this idea before it went into development. I'm so over it now.

jimmy fallon is a fine example of a no talent that does well. much like jimmy kimmel, i have no idea how either of these morans has a job outside of warehouse worker or shoe salesman.

There have been hipsters in NYC for decades.

There have been hipsters in NYC for decades, but you probably haven't heard of them.


/FTFY

It's like a bad standup routine that never ends. Regular people with opinions about operating systems who have top-level characters in WOW walk like THIS while Hipsters they walk like THIS. WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THAT?

We'll call it Brooklyndia.

It's gonna be totally fresh!

That in and of itself would be a notable accomplishment

There was a show about this 6 years ago. You probably never heard of it.
 
2012-09-13 07:01:33 AM  
I know a second joke about youth culture where it doesn't involve saying "but you've never heard of it" but something something oh wait no one has a second joke about younger people today they just keep on saying the same thing over and over again.

Hey, I know. Have the lead character be a sassy chick with a boy's name and dress her in retro clothes whenever possible, but totally have her make fun of hipsters, because it's, wait for it, ironic since she is one and refuses to recognize it.

Or keep everything else, but make her a pathetic single mom, maybe with a diseased child, who meets a handsome, rich man with a heart of gold who could have any woman he wants with a snap of his fingers but falls for her anyway, and Lifetime will snap that shiat right up as a movie of the week.

He seems like a prety deecent guy, and I liked him in Fever Pitch. I find myself rooting for him.
 
2012-09-13 08:11:15 AM  
If it's anything like the turd "Guys with Kids" that I caught last night, I'll be unentertained for the 6 minutes I watch of that show, too. Seriously, way to waste the comic gifts of Anthony Anderson and that one guy from Whitest Kids U Know.
 
2012-09-13 08:13:45 AM  
Just what TV needs further exploration of NYC.

What I think a NYC ought to look like

That's enough, John Mayer Jimmy Fallon.

/ If the new show is anything like 'Guys With Kids', we're in for a punishing.

Isn't that what Girls is doing?

/I dunno, only got through the first episode before I found the awesomesauce that is Boardwalk Empire
//Not I want to buy a three piece suit with a button collar and spats.
 
2012-09-13 10:15:02 AM  
Jimmy Fallon probably shouldn't be making fun of anyone else.

Anyway, people who complain about hipsters are WAY more annoying than hipsters.

Yes they even had a guide to tell the difference between hipsters and homeless, and promptly kicked the hipsters out of the diner.
 
2012-09-13 10:57:37 AM  
Finally, someone will make fun of hipsters!

"I made a mashup of "Steal My Sunshine" by Len and some bird sounds...I'm just using 2 copies of iTunes.." or whatever the fark the dide from I.T. crowd said. I thought that sequence was funny and true - I've seen that dynamic play out in the past. Kinda funny, and yes, hipsterish.

The next Jimmy Fallon-produced show will be called "Show That Is On NBC At 8:30 On Thursdays".

Sgt Otter: So, an even less funny version of Portlandia.


Exactly what I was thinking.
 
2012-09-13 01:21:49 PM  
My first question is, "Why does Jimmy Fallon have a production company?"
 
2012-09-13 01:59:32 PM  
Why hasn't anyone else done a show like this?

www.boiseweekly.com

No, really? Why hasn't anyone ever done a show like this before?

No talent is a bit harsh. He's done some remarkable musical impersonations.

I was sorry to see that never got a second series. I suppose it would be too mainstream if it did though.
 
2012-09-13 03:08:22 PM  
I must be getting old. In my day, these people were called assholes, not hipsters.

Back when he was on SNL and even the start Late Night I agreed with you. But dude seems to be doing a good job. Clips of his show go viral and people love them. My opinion really changed when I heard an interview with one of his SNL cast mates where it was revealed that Will Ferrell and others were purposely going out of their way trying to make Fallon break. Once I knew that my dislike of him, which was mostly because he was always breaking, went way down.

There are plenty of people who can be criticized for being talentless hacks undeserving of fame, someone Lorne Michaels approves of probably doesn't top the list.

His strengths are: he has a likeable personality and he does some good impressions. But he doesn't deliver jokes well and his interviews consist of awkward stuff like, "Ha, that was funny, you're so cool." It's like someone gave a sidekick his own show.
