    My name ain't Dennis, I don't need explaining. I was saying you weren't funny.

    He just can't seem to be objectively critical of the things that he likes. It would be a betrayal. Or something.

    Why do I find Irk telling K2 that he isn't funny to be so ironically hilarious?

    Affleck developing into a great director isn't reason enough to toss trinkets his way, imo. He's going to be making films for years, so I see no point in jumping the gun. They should just wait until he actually deserves it. (Of course, Scorsese got his statue for a lesser work like The Departed when he should have been acknowledged for Goodfellas, which is his masterpiece. So I'm keenly aware of how the whole thing is pretty silly.)
    So you're saying an Oscar would be a little bit too much of a congratulation for the equivalent of graduating from crayons to pencils??? lol But yeah, I hear what you're saying about Scorsese. They should be throwing awards at Goodfellas every year just to make up for it.

    I've seen this. It's akin to the "Joss Whedon effect". That's where you get fans of a show who actually come to believe that it is somehow a part of them and they of it. They schedule their weekly viewing of it like some religious spectacle that's coupled with snacks and sodas instead of wafers and sodomy. (!) They get together with their friends ("You're Marshall! NO! YOU'RE Marshall!!!") for episode marathons and discuss at length overly derived meaning from each episode and put so much energy into understanding Ted Mosby.

    Which is fine, if you have nothing else going on.

    I thought that was the "Kevin Smith effect"
