It's like Todd Haynes' SAFE meets an episode of the X-Files.
Green Bank, West Virginia, outlaws all kinds of modern technology. No cellphones. No wi-fi. It's become a refuge for a group of people who believe those modern marvels are making them sick.

While I complain that San Francisco is losing its status as a film town, my husband's just like, "Why don't we just start using the money we don't spend on cable to bring good stuff here and hope other people show up?"

If you're a cult film fan in SF - please come Friday night to the only screening Paizs's CRIME WAVE will get in the bay area.

If you're somewhere else, seek out John Paizs's CRIME WAVE. It's the most lighthearted dark comedy ever and a print of it is circulating around - but you won't find it on DVD or Blu-Ray unless you've got a good bootleg connection.

Amazing that Apple Maps imagery proves that the Loch Ness Monster was Jack the Ripper. Technology is remarkable.

Now I have added ROCKY IV to the collection of things I have tweeted about sucking while watching said thing.

That being said, ROCKY IV was better than TWILIGHT. (Then again, only SEX IN THE CITY 2 was worse than TWILIGHT)

Things I've snarked that were better than TWILIGHT include:
- LABYRINTH (although there are whiny girls with chaste crushes on pale men who seem not-straight)
- An episode of "True Blood" (although they also screw with the vampire folklore for no good reason and like wolf-vamp-dumb girl love triangles)
- A religious-themed episode of "Highlander" (although the battle sequences were equally badly choreographed and I think some of the actors went to the same acting/driving/phone-it-in night school as the TWILIGHT cast)
- An episode of "Stacked" (even though there was an equal amount of sex having in both, despite "Stacked" being 22 minutes of boob jokes
- An episode of "Psych"
- An episode of "WKRP in Cincinnati" (although neither had enough Les Nessman for my tastes
- An incredibly grim episode of "Alf" that had Fran Dresser as a mob wife (although both featured equally dead, expressionless acting, but as far as I know, Kristen Stewart is not a hand puppet, but don't quote me on that)
- And lots more that's all pretty bad.

In short, seriously, I just don't get this TWILIGHT thing.

That's so much fun. The only similar thing that I've done was one night, watching the terrible Adrien Brody Predator movie I posted a few potshots here:

This was before I figured out what Twitter was for.

I couldn't think of one good, epic Valentine's gift, so I got Dave a series of practical, and semi-practical things. And then mapped them along Jim Kelly's lifeline between Fear and Love, complete with Kitty and illustrative chalkboard.

I resisted getting a wallet for Ling Ling, since, like Donnie Darko, I still don't know where that would go.

Thankfully I married a man who found this romantic, rather than just downright strange. And he got me the best gift -- an actual frog prop from MAGNOLIA.

And this is how we know we married the right movie geeks for us.

Dear plussers:

I have a box set of depressing art movies, but I do not want to watch depressing art movies. Recommendation for a clever, can-be-surreal TV show that I can buy online, watch an episode of without having much back story and will not make me sad for the world?

Hint: Reality TV makes me sad for the world, I'm out of new "Beavis and Butthead" and "Adventure Time", ponies don't do it for me and Simpsons is like the Russian roulette of "Will I be depressed that something once great has collapsed into... this?" Satire, animation and the British all work for me, but "Doctor Who" does not. Armando Iannuci and "Look Around You" are probably the best thing in the world.

Suggestions? There are no wrong answers, just more right ones.

I was going to say "Green Wing" before I opened the comment thread! Green Wing definitely fits your criteria.
You might like "No Heroics" as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Heroics
Oh, and "Corner Gas". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corner_Gas
