    Unless he's drinking gin.

    Man, the second to last episode of season 1 of Bojack was amazing.

    The second to last episode of season 2 made me cringe multiple times and just shake my head in sadness.

    Sorry, Daredevil Episode 2

    Wet Hot American Summer Episode 8 has you beat for "TV Action Scene of the Year"

    It was a shockingly well done scene

    I watched the movie for the first time today and now the first 3 episodes of the show and I hate that I never watched the movie sooner.

    I'm gonna need to watch it at least a couple more times because I was laughing too hard to catch everything.

    When I first saw the movie I was working at a summer camp.

    Good times.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    The best joke in the whole thing (movie and show) is
    The entire bizarre legal subplot mirroring The China Syndrome

    Which, in the movie, the kids in bunk eight are obsessed with

    my favorite joke of the whole thing, weirdly, might have been

    (first day of camp)
    when the evil lawyer calls in jon hamm, and then jason schwartzman wanders in and says "what's that metal thing you're holding" and then I realize the dude is using a goddamned smart phone and I didn't even realize it

    Okay I'm in the middle of rewatching the series and one of my favorite running gags has to be
    The Tigerclaw guys' binoculars being able to see every single location in the camp, with audio, from the exact same vantage point all the way across a lake

    They're even watching things that happen indoors

    That's a name they've used as a fake name in their other movies as well

    one other really good gag from first day of camp:
    bradley cooper going, "I'm DJ Ski-Mask! I'm going to be at the party! It's definitely going to be me!"

    Also one of the best performances in First Day At Camp is totally
    Chris Pine

    His whole delivery kills me

    "The Muse is gone." is still making me laugh

    Welp I just finished the last episode and HOLY SHIT

    I really think they are purposely making Showalter look as awful as possible

    Cause when you look at current stuff of him not in costume he's not that overweight

    It really seems like they stuck a pillow under that jersey

    there is no chance that michael showalter, one of the creators of the show, looking significantly worse than the rest of the cast isn't intentional/part of the joke

    it will always be ben katz for me

    like, i imagine every single one of h. jon benjamin's roles since then as just a fantasy in the head of ben katz

    "what if i was a soccer coach?"

    "what if i was a secret agent?"

    "what if i was a shape shifting god sorceror"

    "what if i was a can of vegetables?"

    I was rewatching the series and wondering "does Jason Schwartzman actually get to do anything particularly funny here?"
    And then he took a spoon out of his pocket to take several helpings of toxic waste in order to determine that it is both toxic and waste and I remembered yes, yes he does

    Yeah, the way that they set things up based on what you know from the movie, and then the way they proceed to tie it back to the movie by the end, is really really clever all around.

    I can't not hear Archer.

    coach mcguirk just always made the most sense to me for benjamin's normal speaking voice

    he was the first character i associated with it, for sure, but still

    Things people should watch after Wet Hot American Summer:

    Jon Benjamin Has A Van

    Michael & Michael Have Issues

    Two wonderful recent Comedy Central shows that were cancelled after one season

    My heart grows a little bit bigger every time John Slattery & Amy Poehler are just ruthlessly mean to their actors.
