Charlotte Pence seems to have a sense of humor about it

That's actually pretty awesome. Either way, these charities are getting money and recognition, which is aways a good thing.

Shite. The last five minutes is decent, but the first 45 is just garbage.

Gervais used to be pretty funny but his new special is hack. He comes off as “edgy”. I use quotation marks because he’s not actually edgy, he’s like those 14 year olds people call edgy because they made a suicide joke.

I’m sure at least one person will say I’m just offended, but I’m not. I’d probably like it more if it was able to offend me, but it’s just recycled jokes from his twitter.

If you’re looking for a stand-up special to watch ... skip this and watch Chris Rock’s new one.

I enjoyed Chris Rock's new special a lot, but I didn't find it nearly as funny as his earlier stuff. It was definitely darker, and he focused a lot on his troubles and life, which was very engaging, but I wasn't laughing out loud like I used to with him. To be honest, it felt like (and he even admitted it during the special) that he was doing it because he needs a paycheck. I didn't feel like he put his all into it like he used to do back in the old HBO special days.

I agree with you... I actually found it quite funny and enjoyed it a lot... I have been a fan of Gervais for years since the original Office, Extras, etc, and this was exactly the type of humor I've come to expect from him. I wasn't disappointed in the least.

Freeform airs the Fosters which is a pretty good show. Not everything is crap on that network.

I love The Fosters... one of my favorite shows. Really sad to hear it's ending.

Have any freeform/ABC family shows gotten past a 5th season?

Gato1980 10 points

I just checked and only two that I can see... Pretty Little Liars had 7 seasons, and Baby Daddy had 6... nothing else has gotten past 5 seasons.

I've watched the Office US 3 times now. The first time I couldn't stand Dwight and loved Jim. The 3rd time I loved Dwight and couldn't stand Jim. I'm sure I'll get hate for this, and I know they become best friends in the end, but Jim is just a dick that hates his job and his mediocre life and takes it all out on Dwight who actually enjoys his job and his home life. Don't get me wrong, Dwight is annoying, but I don't think he deserves all the continuous crap Jim puts him through.

People don't understand the implications of this lawsuit. The chances of her winning are very low, but the fact that she won the previous attempts for dismissal under anti-Slaap is scary.

"If the de Havilland decision were allowed to stand, then that upends the film industry, the TV industry, the video game industry. Anyone who is trying to make stories based on true events with real people are not going to be able to do so without permission.”

That could destroy a huge part of the entertainment industry. This would potentially deter writers/producers/directors from creating anything based around historical facts for fear of being sued.

No, it doesn't mean they won't be able to do movies or TV shows based on true events. It means you won't be able to defame a person portrayed in those movies or TV shows.

I never said they won't be able to make them anymore. If she wins the lawsuit, it means writers and producers would potentially have very little creative control over what they're making, and would have to change any or all aspects of their work based on whatever the subject of the film/tv show tells them to, or face a lawsuit. I can't imagine this would be very appealing to many people in the entertainment industry and would deter almost any screenwriter or filmmaker to work in that genre.

You're talking about a remake.

When I reboot my computer it's still the same computer, so this commonly used analogy works just fine.

Maybe you should stop wasting time worrying about such trivial things?

Gato1980 17 points

A friend and I were actually having a discussion about this the other day so I looked it up on Wikipedia. Technically, it's the same word, but slightly different definition.

In computing, rebooting is the process by which a running computer system is restarted, either intentionally or unintentionally.

In fiction, to reboot means to discard all continuity in an established series in order to recreate its characters, timeline and backstory from the beginning.

And then just because...

In television, a revival is a television series that returns to produce new episodes after being off the air for a certain amount of time. A revival reintroduces most or many of the original program's storylines, characters, and locales. Revivals usually take place at some point after the original series ends.

By contrast, reboots and remakes may feature many of the original characters, but are usually played by new cast members and without taking into account events or continuity that occurred during the original series.
