Superstore on NBC just keeps getting funnier and funnier.

Also, Preacher season 1 and Fargo season 2 are now on Hulu.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

I'm burning through Preacher, and plan on hitting up Better Call Saul next. I watched the first series episode when Tuco shows up at the end, but honestly just got sidetracked and didn't keep going.

The “Deadwood” TV Movie Script Is Done

Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons wrote:Doing early press for “American Gods,” actor Ian McShane has revealed that the proposed telemovie revival of HBO’s “Deadwood” and his most iconic character Al Swearengen is moving forward.

After months of seemingly no movement, McShane tells TV Line that series creator David Milch’s “two-hour movie script’s been delivered to HBO…if they don’t deliver [a finished product], blame them.”

McShane adds that he’s spoken to Milch ‘about some of’ the script: “I’ll be seeing him for lunch [soon]. We’d all love to do it… It would be nice to see all of the old gang again.”

In January, HBO’s top programming exec Casey Bloys said “I haven’t read [Milch]’s script yet… I know he’s working on it. But I have not seen anything yet.”

Chris Fucking Nolan's production company, Syncopy, is officially producing James Bond 25. He is considering directing as well.

I'm convinced in The Departed that Leo DiCaprio's character was the one who got Vera Farmiga pregnant, not Matt Damon.

New Master of None season came out on Friday. It's a quick watch. tWife and I finished it up yesterday. If you liked the 1st season you'll like this season too. Seems a bit more refined than season one. The Thanksgiving episode was hilarious.

You might want to hurry up, after the opening weekend it had, it might no be in many theaters by Friday.

I want to see it, but will probably wait till it's on HBO or something. I'm a huge fan of the Arthurian legends, but not of fan of what Hollywood has done with it in the past 35 years (since Excalibur). The whole "new take on an old tale" is itself getting old. This looks like it might keep some of the classic elements (i.e., Excalibur pulled from the stone and all that), so I've got an open mind, despite the box office and reviews.

I'm really enjoying this show, but in their efforts to transition from the younger actor to Geoffrey Rush's older Einstein in this week's episode, they have him looking like he aged 20 years or more between 1915 and 1918.

There is a second season of Genius that has already been approved, but I believe I read that it's going to be about someone different, and that that person will be introduced in the season finale of this one. Lots of possibilities with all that was going on in the scientific community in the first half of this century, and how intertwined so much of the scientists were (as they've shown quite a bit in this series).

The new "season" of Sherlock is on Netflix. I'm surprised they were able to get Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman back together since they've both gotten pretty huge in movies recently. I use quotes on the word season, because Sherlock is basically a series of movies. Each episode is roughly 90 minutes long and there are only 3 episodes a season.

This show is really well done if you haven't watched it. It's Sherlock Holmes, so I'll leave it at that. Cumberbatch is Sherlock. Freeman is Watson. I forget the name of the guy that plays Moriarty but he is great as well. He played one of the bad guys in one of the latest Bond movies. Spectre I think.

I'm surprised they were able to get Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman back together since they've both gotten pretty huge in movies recently. I use quotes on the word season, because Sherlock is basically a series of movies. Each episode is roughly 90 minutes long and there are only 3 episodes a season.

This show is really well done if you haven't watched it. It's Sherlock Holmes, so I'll leave it at that. Cumberbatch is Sherlock. Freeman is Watson. I forget the name of the guy that plays Moriarty but he is great as well. He played one of the bad guys in one of the latest Bond movies. Spectre I think.
Is that a British TV series (a BBC show or something)? It rings a bell from a few months ago, where some Brits on my twitter feed were gushing it.

Yep. You can catch it on PBS too.

Yes. There was a thread about it specifically a day or so ago, and it seemed that the handful of people here that had seen it (myself included) liked it quite a bit. And not just because she's hot. The actress seemed to fit the role well, and the character was pretty bad ass. What I mentioned in the other thread, is that it's largely more of a war movie than a superhero movie, except for the climatic scene where it shouldn't be a spoiler alert to say that the superhero needs to be very supery.

The Mummy was not very good. I had low expectations going in, but it is just a big mess.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Some butt-munch made a thread about it, even though there is a movie discussion thread.
