It's not just us right? There are too many damn movies and TV shows to keep up with. When we're not in the middle of a season of Game of Thrones, Westworld, Silicon Valley, Stranger Things, or House of Cards, there are always 40 other shows just waiting to get started. If only you were ready to make the commitment. Your girlfriend wants you to propose but you can't even commit to Six Feet Under, let alone the next 60 years of your life.
This glut of TV shows we're experiencing completely fails to lack the steady stream of quality movies coming out not only in the US but all around the world. And the surplus of movies doesn't even address how behind you are on music. Open up Spotify or look at the next festival lineup and you can barely recognize a third of the bands there. And we're not being old fogies complaining about music these days-- most of these bands are good-- we just can't keep up with them. 21 Pilots, 21 Savage, 21 Scarecrows. Only one of those band names is completely made up.
So to give a little order to this exponentially insane world, Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked editors Soren Bowie and Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) to talk about some of their favorite they discovered in 2016. They commiserate about the superabundance of content and Soren gives some completely unsolicited home improvement advice.
