I miss The Good Place!!  The recently-released season four blooper reel only makes me miss it more.  Enjoy.  Everything is fine.

This is fun!  A Good Omens short film, in honor of the book’s 30th anniversary, written by Neil Gaiman with Michael Sheen and David Tennant reprising their roles from the mini-series adaptation:

This is even cooler: a Scott Pilgrim vs. The World reunion, in which the cast does a table read of the entire film!!  This is amazing.  I am a huge fan of the film; ever since it was released I have been shouting to the rooftops that it’s a masterpiece.

In more Neil Gaiman news, the in-production audio-book adaptation of the graphic novel series sounds amazing.  The adaptation will star James McAvoy, and it’s produced by Dirk Maggs, who oversaw a series of incredible audio adaptations of the later books in Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series.  It sounds incredibly cool.  You can listen to the opening chapters here!  (Note: this audible production is a separate project from the Sandman TV adaptation happening at Netflix!)

Ren and Stimpy blew my mind as a kid.  I’m eager to see this documentary on the show and its controversial creator:

Ryan Reynolds has created an, um, abbreviated new cut of Green Lantern.  It’s hilarious.  Take a look.

This is a nice look back on the making of “Yesterday’s Enterprise”, one of the best Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes that is great despite the very chaotic and last-minute way in which it came together.  The article quotes two of my favorite Trek writers, Ira Steven Behr (who went on to run Deep Space Nine for much of its run) and Ron Moore (who went on to be an important writer on DS9 and then created and ran the reimagined Battlestar Galactica).

I am now obsessed with this twitter thread: Turn your favorite movie into an #AmITheAsshole post.  There are so many brilliant entries to be found if you scroll through that thread.  Here’s my favorite: “I (M45) asked my estranged son (M22) (bad breakup with his mom, crazy inlaws kept him from me, long story) to join me in the family business.  Turns out he hates my work and only cares about his loser “friends”.  Things got pretty heated and I accidentally cut his hand off. AITA?”

(That would be The Empire Strikes Back, in case you’re wondering.)

OK, this one is also pretty great: “I [37] don’t meet with my students, ditch classes to break into graves to get some antiquities that I sell to museums to fund my pursuit of a daughter of one of my colleagues. AITA?”

(That would be Raiders of the Lost Ark…)
