I've tried Seinfield a few times and never got into it, it's almost like I chose Larry Sanders at the time and have it in my head not to like both I think.

 

Somebody really needs to get Larry Sanders up on a streaming service, I know it wouldn't do Friends/US Office numbers but can't believe its nowhere to be seen. I'll have to dig out that old hard drive I have with low quality rips from ITV2 from some torrent site 20y ago.

Anyone watched or watching Neill Blomkamps Oat Studios stuff that's on Netflix now?

 

Man, I'm only 2 stories (not episodes) in but it's fucking impressed me so far. Whacked out Vietnam war sci-fi, body horror, eco disaster alien invasions, satanic visitations etc. Fuck knows where it might turn next but I'm enjoying it very much, (although through my fingers at times)

 

Reminds me a bit of Love, Death and Robots but without the heavily animated/CGI focus, although there is obviously quite a bit of that here, but it's all played out as live action. Sections of the first one are also very reminiscent of the live action short he did for Halo too (Halo 3 I think?)

 

Also some decent cameos from well known faces in there as well.

I went straight to "Zygote" because it's the one I'd already watched on Youtube and it's a perfectly little miniature of an Aliens style 1980s SF-flick which stands up well on the big screen. A presmise that's really creepy and intriguing which you see just enough of to be tantalised.

I'd just like to correct myself a bit as I'm watching my way through more of these. Some of the later ones are very much in the style of Love, Death and Robots.

 

Loving them all so far though still except the food show one. That was bad

Yes it is. 
I’ve seen it all before, and I’ve got some fancy pants box set with scripts and all that that I never look at….
But I’ll be back onboard ASAP - so much good stuff in there it’s incredible. 

I never think that posting clips will ever convince a non fan to give it a go as it’s so much better when you know the characters and back stories. 
Also has a catalogue of terrific cameos like this:

 

 

 

Seinfeld continues to date badly.

I like how the clip posted tells you when to laugh because I sure as hell couldn't figure it out.

I guess I can understand that in the same way I can’t really watch Friends - even though I do find it funny in places.   Out of curiosity what are your thoughts on Friends?  And Curb?  
I’m not trying to convert you, just interested in how taste works really.

And to tag on to the previous post, what are Seinfeld haters' thoughts on Always Sunny?

Always Sunny feels like a continuation of the Seinfeld model of a crew of main characters who are all irredeemably awful, except it drops the Seinfeld pretence that they appear to be maybe likable to begin with, before you twig that they're awful. In Always Sunny there's not even a surface niceness to any of them.

I can't stomach Friends either and I've never watched Curb Your Enthusiasm. 

I like absurdity in comedy like The IT Crowd, Father Ted, House of Fools.
