I'm depressed and oblivious as fuck because of no gf and I'm gonna get high tonight. What should I watch to give myself an illusion that I can still feel something?

As an aside to this, I'd like to say that I cried, not from depression, but rather 'strong emotion', similar to...inspiration? But not quite

The ending to, or basically the whole last episode of season 1 of Derek destroyed me. Like I was literally lying on my bed sobbing, and I hadn't shed a tear for 3 years before that. It's 5 or 6 episode series with 22min episodes so about the length of a long movie.

Season 2 wasn;t nearly as sad, though. But that s01 finale... brutal. I can;t hear that Coldplay song Fix You now without thinking of Derek and feeling sad.

Just re-watched that scene and I only had 6 uncontrollably loud sobs with all the tears, that scene is still dreadful. Another good on from season 2 was episode 5, where it has Derek's dog dying, as well as has Hannah finding Derek and his dad with the alcohol and gives them the shotglasses instead of confiscating it, then it cuts straight to Hannah walking in on Kev after she'd been complaining about him stealing parts machine parts all episode and seeing that he'd used it to create a statue of the dog that just died and Derek walks in and seems taken aback by it, then it cuts straight to Hannah's boyfriend leaving her and shows the shots of him walking away while she's crying on the couch with everyone around here, and then the part after the credits happens. That episode made me cry a bit but it wasn't the loud uncontrollable ones season 1's finale gave me.

Okay, this deserves its own thread besides a general. I'm watching it now and it's too good. It reminds me of Neil Gaiman in a big way. You all need to get on this, it airs over 5 consecutive nights all this week. If you partake in the herb, this is a show worth toking for. If you can't wait for them all to air, they're all online, I'll post links next.
I'm really vouching for this one. And I don't like most Cartoon Network, I don't even watch Regular Show anymore and Uncle Grandpa and Steven Universe failed to entertain, whether sober or catatonic.

A while ago I read around a bit to see what people thought of this and was shocked to find that people find wildly different meaning from it than I do. Everyone seems to think it's about Satan or some shit.

To me it was very clear that The Beast is an embodiment of despair. The Unknown is a land of metaphor and myth (any other definition of it is largely irrelevant) in which the two brothers must undergo the hero's journey to transform themselves. And when they emerge from The Unknown (literally called that in monomyth structures) they have developed the courage, from resisting despair, to survive their near death encounter.

It made me think of the section involving despair in The Faerie Queene. I haven't read the entire work, obviously, but I have read the part about the old man Despaire and I think that part has a lot in common with Over the Garden Wall. Despaire is an old man who talks people into giving up hope and killing themselves, not too different from The Beast who presents people with impossible tasks, who then give up hope and slowly succumb to despair, joining the forest.

From Academy Award winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) and the duo of Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain (Peep Show, Fresh Meat), Babylon delivers a satirical look at the inner workings of a UK police department and the media necessary to inform the public. Fresh off of her hit TED talk, American new media PR maven Liz Garvey (Brit Marling) arrives to head up publicity at the London police force, all guns blazing and without a clue of what she’s walking into. This fish out of water story hilariously shows the clash of cultures and age, the embrace of transparency and technology as well as the real underbelly of the relationship between media and government.

The series premieres tonight at 10pm EST on SundanceTV. It already aired on Channel 4 last month but I figured I'd make a thread since we don't discuss enough British shows on here and considering who the creators of this show are.

I watched like 10 minutes of a random episode of "Resurrection S1", and I was taken back by how awful it was. I don't any tv show can be that bad, and I can't imagine how worse S2 could be. It's like they tooked "Les Revanants" and gave it the "LOST" treatment.

I know you're skeptical of the remake, but but I'm just really hopeful for it. I know it won't be as good as the original, but I'm still expecting some quality level of entertainment. It's from the creator of "Bates Motel", so I'm imaging it'll have the story of "Les Revanants", with the stye, characters, and acting of "Bates"; I'm not expecting anything as amazing as the original, but something to satisfy my cravings for S2 of "Les Revanants" (which we should see this Fall, fingers crossed).

I will say that I was excited for "Those Who Kill" and wound up disappointed, so I won't make any bets on the remake being good.

I think since demand is so high for it, they may very deal attempt to do some same-day release thing, although perhaps you're right and it'll take a bit longer.

It sucks that it's taken this long to make S2... how are they going to explain both Camille and Victor aging? Especially since S2 only takes place 6 months after the events of S1? It'll require some suspension of belief, but that's fine.

nb, because we're totally derailing this thread lol. I'm just super excited to discuss "Les Revanants" and the remake, it's been building up in me for months now.

But yeah... Babylon... Has a 6.9 rating on IMDB, I think. Not very good sign. I wonder if they withheld showing the pilot because of the shit that's going on in France... I do know the plot of the pilot revolves around some terrorist sniper.

2015 is upon us and as I look back on this year in television, there was a lot of great new shows as well as great seasons of pre-existing shows already on the air this year. For what it's worth, I felt pretty satisfied with all the new shows that I've been able to get into this year.

So /mtv/, what were your favorite / top five new shows and favorite seasons from pre-existing shows this year? I'll divide it into drama, comedy, (dramedies/comedy-dramas can go in whatever category you feel) and animation/anime. There's a 2014 in movies thread here >>308492.

Also, I stopped trying to be a critical critic but a fan critic. If I was trying to go full AV Club and list classy shit, Hannibal would've placed and Mad Men would've been #1 instead of Shameless. And I made my list in order of how fun shows were to get wasted for. Despite snubbing Trailer Park Boys, I tried making my list the voice of the drug boards.

I never guessed my snubbing Hannibal would cause such controversy, but I guess it was fun having the Hannibal fans furious with me again. To give Hannibal props, the episode with the guy who thought he was an animal scared the living shit out of me. It ranks with Luther for the most tension a show has ever had, that guy was terrifying. Also, props to whoever does its score.
At least I didn;t put American Horror Story on the list but snub Hannibal, then I wouldn;t blame you guys being mad.

>Hannibal is essentially a The Flash type show with a better director.
Don't watch the Flash, so what do you mean by that? Do you mean it's just a better version of a formulaic adaptation show? I don't agree. Those shows don't pull Hannibal level shenanigans.

As for it just being scary, I don't even think that it is scary. For me it's more about macabre beauty, mind games and mischief. I just like looking through Hannibal's eyes, getting inside his head, laughing at what he laughs at (more like subtlely smirks at) and trying to read into his evasive dialogue to predict what he is going to do. It's a lot of fun. The dead folks fill me with that awe. I dunno how you can't feel anything but fear though. Like when Abigail gets killed the second time. Damned if that wasn't both beautiful and horrific. You felt horrible for Will and sad for Hannibal but damned if that picture of Abigail writhing on the floor doesn't speak to wonder. The moment the teacup shatters.

Hey errybody, I've been finding highlights of DLM on youtube and it seems like he's had some really great guests, I'd love to see the full episodes but at the end of each season the episodes get pulled off itunes and you have to pay for them.

Does anyone have an archive of the older DLM episodes where they could be streamed/downloaded?

Also, anybody have some favorite episodes/moments of the podcast? So far for me the best clip I've heard is TJ Miller imitating Pete Holmes by saying "I'm really insecure and want you to like me but I also think I'm better than you", followed by Pete saying "It's true!".

How Laura Palmer's dad came to be possessed by a demon and raped his daughter, and how that connects to the extremely trippy ending, and what the trippy ending actually meant.

Laura's father, Leland, met BOB as a child in a dream he had while staying at his grandfather's house. Bob then tricked him into inviting him into his body; he then possessed and tormented him and his daughter over a period of decades. In the final episode, Cooper enters the Black Lodge, where Bob is from, to try and save his girlfriend from his ex-partner, Windom. Windom offers to let Annie live in exchange for Coop's soul, to which Cooper agrees. However, Bob suddenly appears and attacks Windom, saying that he is wrong and cannot ask for Cooper's soul (either because he is a mortal, or because it is Bob's realm and thus, Windom is out of line trying to harvest soul's on Bob's territory.)

Bob tells Cooper to leave and then takes Windom's soul instead. At this moment, Cooper experiences fear for the first time since he entered the lodge. Remember that deputy Hawk told him that if one were to face the Black Lodge with imperfect courage, it will utterly annihilate your soul. Cooper's fear summons his shadow self, a doppelganger, (the Dweller on the Threshold) who pursues Cooper through the lodge and eventually catches him. The ending reveals that Coop never actually made it out of the lodge, having been captured by his shadow-self. The Coop we see at the end of the show is actually Bob possessing his body.

Does that clear things up?

I do think that to some degree, a person's beliefs carry over into what they consider to be scary, but at the same time, I realize that it's a fluid nature and nothing is definite. Not all theists will find it scary, and not all atheists will find it boring. I don't believe in spirits or demons, and yet there's a lot of movies that deal with ghosts and demons that I find to be scary; I mentioned one above, "Evil Dead", and another would be "The Innkeepers".

My most favorite horror movies, I've noticed, are grounded within the realm of what I consider possible. Diseases, genetic mutation, and so forth. So, while I don't think a person's beliefs can prevent them from enjoying a movie, I do think that ta person's most favorites would be more in-line with their own beliefs; religious, political, moral, and so on. Again, these things are fluid, it's not always going to be definite. I can really only speak from my own limited experience.

Evil Dead spirits stem from a Lovecraftian origin, too, and I am always quicker to believe the horror in a movie if Lovecraft is somehow connected to it.

Makes sense. I love stories about the mentally unbalanced, and possession tales I view less as religious tales and more metaphors for succumbing to and then dealing with insanity. I've taken enough acid where any movie that relies on the premise "Ever feel like something has ALWAYS been watching you?" will freak me out proper. I also bought DMT, but then watched The Banshee Chapter and am too afraid to smoke it now.

Also, I know how much restraint it must have taken to not make fun of me for getting scared by James Wan. Another similar example of real life deciding what horror scares you is that I saw Insidious right after becoming particularly obsessed with my dreams, and wound up sleeping with the lights on that night. Different stuff scares different people, and the right movie can leave me in a 24 hour state of insanity. I was so baked for The Conjuring that I was convinced I had always been followed by a demon, only because I didn;t know it was there, it never bothered me. And that many people are followed by demons, who only have power to effect you once you believe in them. I was convinced James Wan made The Conjuring solely to make people more ready to believe so that demons across the globe would have more weakened mindsets to start praying on, and that I was next.
TLDR don;t do drugs
