I thought that was going to follow The Daily Show. This was already known.
 
2014-08-22 10:24:13 AM  
Will there be any minorities on the show? They didn't have any in the farking movie!

Am I the only one that remembers the end of the movie where the pre-cogs were set free and appeared to live their life out in some remote mountain top?

Much like Col Matrix in Commando, they'll be recalled to duty

After spending their life in a heated pool they'd certainly be well equipped for life on the mountains. I can only imagine they prospered.

I must have watched that movie 75 times as a kid, but never noticed until recently that the guy in the adjacent motel room when Arnold and Bill Duke come crashing through the wall appears to be on the receiving end of a "pegging".

Production to "film" in Ferguson.

Either they've announced this more than once since a few years after the film's release or I need to be out predicting future crimes.

TV is for the young and innovative. You are neither of these things, Spielberg. Go back to making Jaws sequels, you hack.

This Jaws has a walkie talkie!

As far as sequels go, he's only ever directed 3 Indiana Jones sequels and Jurassic Park II

They are also his weakest movies (although Temple of Doom has its moments).

He needs to stay away from sequels.

I would agree, except I think Last Crusade is a much, much stronger movie than Temple of Doom

We'll just assume the 3rd post will be an echo and delete it, but in reality, it will be the actual GIF.   A Minority GIF, if you will.

Not technically, though Amistad was close
 
2014-08-22 01:53:45 PM  
For sure it will be 5 minutes of "sci fi" stuff every week w/ 35 minutes of 'drama' and 20 minutes of commercials

It's from Season 3, Episode 19 called Curriculum Unavailable, where John Hodgman plays a psychiatrist that is evaluating Abed.  That 'precog' scene with Chang and Garrett is a brief snippet in a flashback montage of curious goings-on at Greendale. It's in the version from Amazon, not sure if it's been trimmed out in syndication.
 
2014-08-22 02:29:01 PM  
Presumably each story will last 30 minutes, but the episode will drag on for another 12 minutes after the real ending in a series of increasingly tangential anticlimaxes.

We give it 12 months before someone mentions a Star Wars TV show... though we could probably just check with the precogs.

THE HELL YOU SAY.

It was set in DC wasn't it? So, the white people.
 
2014-08-22 04:09:44 PM  
Well, if it's a TV show, they'll want it to be ongoing, so at least it won't have that shiatty, intelligence-insulting, half-sensical ending that made me want to track down Spielberg and sock him in the nose.
 
2014-08-22 04:10:01 PM  
I thought Minority Report was awesome...

/also, I was apparently the only one in the theater who didn't know Bruce Willis was dead the whole time in The 6th Sense.

Did that guy have any lines?

At any rate, aren't the precogs basically crack babies... And all three of them were white. What kind of farked up world are we living in when all three crack baby roles in a movie go to white people!

I pretty sure that white and blue jar on the table says 'ELBOW GREASE'. So I guess that's what they were calling it back then?
That white thing on the bed is a HItachi-type massager and is more clear in other angles of this scene.
I don't understand why they were completely under the sheets when the door gets busted down if they are filming themselves?

It took me a while to figure out the ending. Turns out those were the names of the people who worked on the movie.

Is it weird that Samantha Morton gave me total bone in that movie ?
