    Sucks that 'The Office' is leaving Netflix. But it's not going away of course. It'll now be streaming on Peacock, NBC's new platform. And they just released a never-before-seen clip from the show to celebrate the move.

    If I'm not mistaken, this was going to be the cold open for the series finale. I think I remember one of the creators saying that they had a Matrix Prank, but it didn't make the cut. I can see why. Its pretty good, but I can also see why it was cut.

    Mr Scruff and DJ Yoda Rave to the Moon

    This one is super cool. Completely online digital rave. The idea is that an average dancer dances about 6,000 steps in an hour. So if atleast 16,000 people attend the rave and dance for atleast an hour, that would total 577 million steps, enough to get to the moon. Plus all proceeds raised by the rave (if you choose to donate) go to charity. You can watch the event on MixCloud live.

    I'll definitely be watching the Times Square one but was not aware of this. Nice share, I'll be checking that out too.

    Always enjoyed happening upon Jeopardy! flipping through the channels after school. When I realized it came on basically right after I got home, I would try and remember to watch it as often as I could. Definitely didn't watch as much as you, but I do really like game shows. Spent lots of time watching game show network when I was younger, and like you, am embarrassed to say I really liked Supermarket Sweep. (though I do not want to see the new version)

    Jeopardy! was always my favorite. Made me feel smarter. Of course it didn't make me really any smarter (I don't think) but I did feel smart getting final jeopardy, or seeing how many of the questions I could get right.

    Going to be weird and probably not at all the same without Trebek. Its been fun watching Jeopardy reruns on Netflix. Like to play along and see how many I can get right in an episode. More satisfying than catching on network TV and having to sit through all the commercials, in the middle of the day.

    Here's just a moment I liked alot in the first episode. The Animaniacs being super self aware that they're a reboot (they even call out the movie Old Boy):

    So good. Maybe the best commentary I have ever seen on that subject. Thanks for sharing that. Had no idea it was back; I'm all in. Is Spielberg still involved?

    I loved the first 2 1/2 episodes of the first season. But started to sense trouble toward the end of the third episode, that this may not be the great show it seemed it was destined to be. I then quickly lost interest after starting the fourth episode and quickly realized I didn't care anymore. And never went back to it.

    I'm not a Star Wars fan really. I don't hate the franchise, I just never got into it. Only have seen a few of the films in totality. The first 2, and 2 of the early 2000's reboots. None of the newer ones. So I was hoping this was something I could get into without knowing much, and enjoy just streaming at home. And see what I was missing out on. So far.. doesn't seem like much.

    Which sucks after such an awesome start to a show.

    What is your list of the scariest movies and/or TV shows you've ever seen? Doesn't have to be just for Halloween as we all know horror films come out all year long. List ones that got you as a kid or ones that still freak you out or get under your skin to this day.

    Or if you're more like me and don't typically get truly scared by movies or shows, which ones are your favorites and at least got to you a little, and are good for some genuine scares, really cool stories, graphics, storylines, etc?

    My top horror list:

    • Room 1408
    • Cabin in the Woods
    • Halloween (the original)
    • Poltergeist (the original)
    • The Haunting of Hill House (TV Show on Netflix, Season 1)
    • Black Mirror - White Christmas episode.

    The two classics for me are definitely Halloween and Poltergeist. I think the original Halloween is really unnerving and felt realistic to me as a kid, was hard to watch by myself with all the lights turned off, and that one always stuck with me. And Poltergeist made me afraid (and really anxiously curious) of static TV channels for years after.

    Room 1408 wins for being one of if not the best mind bending films that genuinely made me uncomfortable. Cabin in the Woods twist at the end was awesome.

    Haunting of Hill House was so well done and, if you've seen it, the plot twist in episode 5 was one of my all-time favorite moments for the genre. Highly recommend that whole season.

    And finally White Christmas. I like mind benders and nothing broke my brain or freaked me out more than the prospect of what happened to the guy in the egg at the end. Was similar to Room 1408 in a way.

    I think this is a money grab. And as bad or mediocre as it will probably be, it will most likely make them a lot of money because of the built-in interest and controversy surrounding it. People will watch because of the hype, because they hope its actually good, and because they like to see train wrecks, so they can give their hot takes online on just how bad Snyder is. Not saying any of that is bad necessarily..

    I'm back and forth on Synder. I quite liked Watchmen. I was in the minority that really enjoyed Sucker Punch. Also liked Man of Steel. And of course 300 was really fun. But Batman v Superman was one of the worst movies ever. And then Justice League.. yikes.

    Looks like he is turning over a new leaf with his pivot to remaking Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead. That's good news to me. Really curious to see his take on that.

    I honestly don't understand what so many like about the show. I've seen quite a bit of it and just don't get the appeal. Seems so tropey and boring. Then again, I didn't actually start the show from the beginning, so I could be entirely wrong.

    So you think it could be a show like Arrested Development where you need to start from the very beginning and be 'in' on all the inside jokes to enjoy it and really get it?

    The Matrix 4: Keanu Reeves And Carrie-Anne Moss Tease ‘Beautiful Script’ With ‘Incredible Depth’ – Exclusive

    I heard the Matrix series was going to be rebooted, perhaps with Will Smith as the new Neo. Or something like that. And I rolled my eyes.

    But now I am reading they aren't rebooting it, but instead making a fourth film. With the original cast. Or at least Keanu and Moss. And judging by their reactions to the proposed script, I have to say I am immediately on board.

    I loved the first Matrix film. And ultimately agree with everyone that the 2nd and 3rd were beautiful messes. But with so much time passing, and if they really have a great script, I say lightning can strike twice, and I will 100% be in line to see this on the big screen.
