AngryJailhouseFistfark: I knew neither the Chris O'Dowd nor the Roy from the IT Crowd references.

Chris O'Dowd isn't a reference... it's the guy's name.

downstairs: SmackLT: I tend to like Christopher Guest comedies. Will check this one out.

Yep, its got a lot of his regulars... its going to be good.

Hope to see a lot of Fred Willard.

Gig103: harlock: Still one of the best IT Crowd clips:

Nothing compares to Jen borrowing The Internet

Oh yea, I had seen that clip before.   It's a good one as well.

That clip reminded me of a trailer for certain kinds of movies I would never see unless some attractive female really wanted me to watch it with her.  And by certain kind I mean gay.  "In order to find himself...he must search his past."  I mean, that sounds like a real exciting journey of self discovery with a few laughs along the way and learn something about how we all fit together in this great big puzzle we call gay.  Despite the fact that it has Roy from the IT Crowd and Lenny from Laverne & Shirley I think I'll pass.  Already made a similar mistake with "Sideways".

The Flexecutioner: i just saw him last night in a Doc Martin rerun as a bumbling, inept, manic thief who isnt taking his meds holding everyone hostage in an attempt to get a bag of explosives for a warehouse robbery.

and he isnt even the reason i want to see Guest movies but that is just supre-sized gravy on top, imo.  I will definitely see this in one way or another.

OMG, Jen is his secretary!  i was trying to put where i knew her from and it just hit me.  damn.  if only Moss was somewhere on that show.

Esc7: wingnut396: I just want to pay for HBO without having to pay for $150 of other crap that I don't want so I can get the ability to pay for HBO.  Is that too much for a person to ask?

It is coming.  The pieces are in place.  They're looking for an opportunity when the networks aren't looking.  They seriously are giving off vibes that they would love to sell HBO GO directly, without the cable provider's mitts all over them.  They're just scared that if they do the providers will go scorched earth on them.

All they need is an opening.  Where it doesn't seem like they're screwing the cable companies.  Then we can watch boobs and dragons all day long.

Isn't HBO owned by Time Warner, a major cable company? Can't see them letting their subsidiary run around behind their back like that.

Sweet Jesus, HBO has become a "take my money" situation at this point. Game of Thrones, True Blood, Veep, and now this?? So much quality...

HBO GO is a f-ing fantastic app as well.

Crewmannumber6: jack21221: Is he just going to be "Roy from the IT Crowd" for his entire career? Or can we call him Chris O'Dowd one of these days?

See Pirate Radio about the Radio Caroline days in the UK back in the 60's. He plays a DJ, and he kills it.

/pretty good in Bridesmaids too

I LOVE Pirate Radio. I wish more people had seen it. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rhys Ifans "mast off" is worth the price of admission alone.

HallsOfMandos: The side-bar on Youtube for that vid above had the US version pilot episode linked (full):


Very weird to watch, especially since they kept the original Moss.

I watched this the other day and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Moss, obviously, was hilarious, the girl was pretty good, but Joel McHale was just flat. Normally I like him, but he was definitely the weakest link in that ensemble.

For those who don't know- Chris Guest is The 5th Baron Haden-Guest of Great Saling in Essex County England and his half brother Anthony Haden-Guest is the person that Tom Wolfe's novel "Bonfire of the Vanities" is most probably based on.

Interesting family to say the least.
