I like On Cinema best when it is low key passive agressive jabs and inane chat rather than the full blown Alex Jones tempest it is now. I spose it's too far gone now to go back to that, I still really enjoy it mind.

I prefer the more nuanced and subtle earlier shows too, it's funnier when Tim and Gregg's resentment for each other isn't overt. That said, this year's Oscar Special was pretty good. They may have been peaked with the brilliance of the Trial but there's still enough interest in the storyline for me. It must be difficult at this point though when Tim is straight up evil and Gregg trusting or forgiving him would be too much of a stretch.

I'm pretty sure the 'Oh Bobby' moment was a tribute or at least a reference, given that both Tim and Gregg are connoisseurs of disastrous TV/film moments. I know that Tim is a League of Gentlemen fan and the footage appeared in the recent Inside No. 9 Halloween special so they may have seen it there.

I've not had time to watch this, how much Joe Estevez can I expect? He is my biggest draw.

A fair chunk, and at his most affable.

The bit where Joe pulled away during Dekkar’s astonishing Bohemian Rhapsody cover, because he was worried about Gregg, was very touching.

Did anyone else find the tone of the Bohemian Rhapsody finale kind of not-in-keeping in the OC universe? Maybe Tim was genuinely drunk, but it seems too overtly comedic - hammy and broad. Surely Tim would try to do genuinely do the best cover he could.

I dunno, it didn't seem that far removed from him dicking around drunkenly with a bass guitar 4 OCOS's ago. Just kind of drunk self indulgent assholishness riffing off a theme.

so do we reckon tim knew what he was doing with the magnets?

i sensed he was up to something when he was looking at the tapes because he was making some weird grinchy faces but i assumed he was thinking about stealing and selling them on ebay, but maybe that was said to throw everyone off?

either way i love how this has happened so many times but somehow i never see it coming

Just finished it and loved it. The highlights for me were the zero hour infomercial, a great piss take of those idiotic right wing conspiracy nut videos and Marks's confusion upon awakening, his reactions were hilarious. I loved how underneath the chaos, everything comes together. Didn't love Tim's final song mind you, seemed to go on for too long.

Does anyone have any idea if they are doing another season?

Oh, Tim knew. My favorite thing about this is the fact that Gregg's lost his archive, what, four times now? And every time, almost immediately, he reacquires the lot and then some for next to nothing, such is the value of VHS these days. (I also love the detail of his keeping a supply of blank tapes on hand to tape all the current Oscar nominees.)

Gregg still has another 2 backup film archives in secure locations.

I must admit I was a bit nervous what direction they were going when Tim turned up wearing a strange bulky vest and a backpack.

This is pretty good and useful for anyone looking at this thread, interested, but overwhelmed:

I've watched a few of these over the years but not religiously. It sounds like it's a show that really benefits from immersion, so would you recommend starting from the beginning? S01E01? And working my way through it?

I think it’s the only way to get the most out of the show - it’s such a slow burn that relies on the audience knowing every detail from On Cinema’s past.

Like a soap opera, you absolutely could start watching from any point, but many of the character traits and plot threads wouldn’t have as great an impact because of the lack of context.

There was an initial series of podcasts too, worth starting there. Should all be up on Youtube in a playlist.

But like the one Weaseldust posted it's incomplete around Decker season 3/4/5 because for some licensing reason I've never understood those seem to be very hard to track down online. This one also stops at OCATC season 8.

Apologies if it's been mentioned earlier in this thread, but Gregg was interviewed on the latest Kreative Kontrol podcast and he mentioned a movie he and Tim had made as part of the On Cinema universe, around Tim running for DA, some filmed in studio, some in public. He was fairly raving about it, particularly Tim's performance. Said it should be out later this year, including hopefully a theatrical run, but I'd imagine that would be US focussed. Exciting!

Thanks for linking to that, I've never heard Gregg talking as himself before.

Woah! I didn't expect to see another Kreative Kontrol listener on this here website! Thanks for that.

I would like to add that I saw the special a few days later than everyone else, and all I will say is that Mark Proksch is always responsible for the biggest laughs of any special he appears in.  Even in this one where he doesn't need to do much, any time he popped up led to me almost pissing myself laughing in fits of hysteria.  Also, I agree that THAT moment is a total "Oh Bobby!" homage.
