    Post clips that you like from shows that you like. Can be comedy, drama, comedy-drama, sitcom, sketch show, topical show, US, UK (other nations are available), film, TV or radio, whatever.

    OK, seeing as this is a Red Dwarf site let’s start with this –

    I can’t believe how much IAP2 has grown on me over the past few years.

    Weeds is not my favourite TV show but I am really enjoying it, because it does things like this:

    Just a man in the Major Crimes police department, re-organising a picture board set to Johnny Cash.

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=oFLiI1iBTx4

    Also, the opening titles for the first season. A master class in montage set to brilliant music:

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=J3t6io0vW-c

    Also, this is quite spoilery for season 4 of Lost, but this face-off is just brilliant, but only really in the proper context of the show. That one scene sets up so much for what is to come and covertly reveals a great many clues as to how both men are connected to The Island.

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=DkOsImjXcQs

    And, finally, the scene from The West Wing season 2. Again, it needs some context to properly work, but I care not a jot:

    I love how Green Wing manages to squeeze a half hour worth of jokes into an hour.

    Probably the IT Crowd moment that made me laugh the most:

    I need to read his book. And finish revisiting the Homicide DVDs. And get the whole Wire boxset.

    Given that a lot of the book was used as the basis for both shows, it’ll be interesting to see what else is duplicated.

    > Also, The Wire has swearing and nudity.

    I couldn’t get over how brilliant this episode was. The first four of that season are some of the greatest episodes of television ever made. The big question is, can they better or even match that with the end of season 4?

    I’ve said it on here before, but – FUNNIEST MOMENT IN TV HISTORY :

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jcdK7sAy40A

    And meanwhile, because the TWO best TV moments of 2007 BOTH involved John Simm :

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=aOEfvMMcw_A

    The absolute brilliance of that sequence, the use of the music… everything made up for the fact that series two was a little disappointing compared to the first. It would have been fine if they’d just had the first series ending with that scene, to be honest.

    It doesn’t matter how many times I watch that, it doesn’t get any less special. Jacobi is fantastic, obviously, but Tennant also has his finest five minutes as The Doctor. EVERYTHING works.

    EDIT: Everything apart from the sparky effect on the cable.

    #86202

    I’d almost go so far as to say Jacobi’s performance in Utopia is the equal, if not the better, of anything in Who. Ever. That moment when he turns around after opening the watch… there’s no makeup, or anything like that, but purely through his eyes you can see that he’s changed. Awe-inspiring stuff.

    And I still get a shiver down my spine when it cuts in the Face of Boe bit. And when you hear the Gallifrey music (although at the time we didn’t know it was that, of course) as Yana is remembering “his” life. And… oh, the whole thing gives me goosebumps.

    I really like the whole “It’s Alive” Frankenstein’s Monster vibe. The bubbling noise and the soundbytes. Watching that clip again I just love the way Tennant plays it when Martha is telling him about the watch.

    Shame the LoM clip is messed up by David Bowie trying to copy John Lennon. The Master moment though is priceless. IMO they were beyond lucky to get both Jacobi AND Simm to do the role (Jacobi being immensely excellent in those few moments where he’s The Master). I know Simm grates on some people with all the Tennant-esque yelling and running around but I think he was exactly the right choice. If Eccleston had still been the Doctor probably the most perfect Master would have been Sean Bean (though it would have been more or less repeating his Trevelyan role in Goldeneye). I hope Moffat gets to deal with the character in the future. More likely to be the Rani and/or the Valeyard from Trial that return before him though.

    From that clip you’d think you’d tuned into Dick and Dom (only several years later and on a Saturday). God I used to love it (TMWRNJ, not Dick and Dom, I only used to LIKE Dick and Dom, whenever I got chance to watch it. If only iplayer had been around then..)

    Who was more influenced by Lee and Herring, Dick and Dom or the Boosh guys…? And Matt Berry needs to give Richard Herring his old hair back.

    Speaking as someone who was brought up in a Christian household himself (albeit I don’t seriously practice any more,) I didn’t want to condemn her for her faith…. or consider it ‘retarded’

    … but watching the video further, that sense of self-righteousness she displays makes me feel like wincing. Condemning Obama because of his parents’ beliefs? Or his own kind of Christian faith (whatever that is?) She’s conveniently forgetting some Christian principles herself. (“Judge not lest ye be judged”, etc.)

    She is retarded. “I will vote for the candidate who believes more” is ruddy stupid. Frankly I’d prefer she made her decision based on their hair styles, or something slightly less cerebrally bankrupt.

    Sorry I had to write it down to see if what he says made any more sense when read… It doesn’t.

    “In case… I think you may have noticed That Senator Obama’s supporters have been saying some pretty nasty things about Western Pennsylvania lately! And you know? I couldn’t agree with them more… I couldn’t disagree with you… I couldn’t agree with you more than the fact that Western Pennsylvania is the most patriotic, most ff… uh, God loving, most patriotic part of America! And this is a great part of the country”

    WTF is he doing?!? Apparently as well as agreeing with a total nut-job he can’t seem to string a coherent sentence together. So you you agree or disagree then Mr McCain???

    If McCain gets in prepare for the worst. If Obama gets in STILL prepare for the worst but be consoled by the fact that it’s him we’ll be listening to, and not McCain, when the shit hits the fan.

    According to various sources the next President is going to face something major next year. Joe Biden (Democratic VP candidate) clearly mentions this here. I like how he calls it a ‘generated’ crisis. What does that suggest?? Obama later excused Biden’s words saying “Joe sometimes engages in rhetorical flourishes”. Though Colin Powell also mentioned something bad’s gonna happen in January, if you watch this clip from around 2:15 onward – http://youtube.com/watch?v=_LDBOPcHpeo

    I imagine the “something bad” is just the compounded frustrations of several major issues having to be dealt with at once (the economy, healthcare, the FUCKING WAR, climate change, our atrocious global standing, the fact that half the nation will start out utterly against the new president…in no particular order…) and not some specific, as-yet-undefined event that all of the candidates know about but aren’t telling us.

    That’s conspiracy, monkey.

    And there’s plenty of stuff we already DO know about that qualifies as crisis…why does there have to be a hidden one that takes precedence?

    Whomever gets in WILL have to face a crisis, and that crisis is proving himself to be able to handle the position RIGHT OFF THE BAT. There won’t be any time to get used to it. He won’t be able to coast along until tragedy strikes. We’ve had 8 years of tragedy. If the next president doesn’t take fast steps toward rectifying that, he’s already a failure.

    The rules

    1 If you’re of a certain age you here this theme tune and a nostalgic voice inside your head compels you to think, or in a worst case scenario say ‘Aww they don’t make them like that any more’

    2 You watch two, perhaps three minutes of the show. You realise you were right. They don’t make them like that any more. Because it was f*cking shite. Great theme tune, dull bloody show.

    This however was the bestest bloody show in all of christendom.

    A great scene from season 2 of Rome (some slight language and punching) – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvbiC634Pb0

    Such a massive shame that Rome didn’t get at least 4 seasons. It could have run and run, going through Caligula, Claudius, Nero and maybe even a later period in the Empire. Sadly it was too expensive to carry on with. The cast were so brilliant (it’s great that Polly Walker is now in the Galactica spinoff, Caprica) and the drama, though being totally overblown a lot of the time, hit all the right notes for me. James Purefoy as Marc Antony was pure genius. And then you had the core characters of Pullo and Vorenus, who’s stories you wanted to follow for a LOT longer time than we got. One of my favourite series’ ever.
