I’ve bought a lot of high-resolution classical recordings that were mastered brilliantly. As for the more popular stuff, the ZZ Top, Van Halen, Tom Petty, Donna Summer, Rush (2015 masters done by...

That was the first episode in years to perfectly capture the gang's mannerisms from the early seasons.

Very nice house. Pity that they completely lacked the resourcefulness to take full advantage...

Yeah, I’m not all too enthused by any of the preliminary footage. It was hyped as this large scale, ultra-fast experience with general design mechanics that hark back to the original, but instead...

While I haven’t been responding very positively to Baskets, I absolutely adore the US version of Wilfred. It is certainly weird with a mix of macabre humor that I find quite funny, but it also has...

It's entirely possible that he's just an idiot who doesn't think ahead, like many other criminals.

I do respect Galifianakis for trying something different and low-key when he could have instead been making much more money through yet another big...

That was great, as was Dennis' futile attempt to explain that what happened to him in school wasn't statutory rape.

I knew exactly where this show was headed. As soon as I saw the gallery, I said...

Tell me about it. It’s been over twenty years and I still remember those sketches quite vividly!

It is one of Leno’s lowest points, and that’s saying a lot.

That’s my issue; these monitors need to get bigger as I don’t have my nose touching the screen. I want a 50+ inch G-Sync panel, and I don’t care how much it costs (within some reason, of course).

Yeah, the whole thing was annoying in reality, so a dramatization is likely to be even worse.

I’m guilty of not watching him lately, but I haven’t been watching any of the other late night people, either. I don’t know why, but I lost much interest in all of this stuff.

Yeah, Falcon Northwest goes back some. I remember reading their ads in boot/Maximum PC print mags starting in the late ‘90s. Their markups were quite high at the time if I recall correctly, but it...

It was alright, though I can’t imagine much room for interesting story development as the series continues. It was fun to see Louie Anderson; it had been a LONG time since I last saw him in anything.

Instant classic. Many shows have done ‘80s throwbacks, but this was among the best of them. Having Dean Cameron on board made it extra special.

Based on what I’ve seen in the previews, and given Galifianakis and Louis C.K.’s involvement, it seems that “eccentric” would be a most apt description of this show. I usually love eccentric,...
