I thought Amazon were butchering Tolkien's work but now I'm picturing a Disneyfied Silmarillion.To be fair to Bob, Better Call Saul is probably as inaccessible/daunting for him as The Silmarillion is for many people, seeing as it's an adult-oriented drama set in the real world without any flashing colors or Whedonesque quips to keep his attention.
And if he had to compare Gilligan's works with Tolkein's, wouldn't The Hobbit be a better analogue for Better Call Saul than The Silmarillion, since it's far more intertwined in terms of character crossover and temporal distance?
Turin upon finding out he's married his sister: "well this is awkward".
Of course Bob wouldn't compare it to the Hobbit because that is a book for children and Bob is a grown man so he's going to reference only books for grown ups. That he's never read. But yes, it would make more sense to compare the two as the Hobbit has characters and events that directly influence the Lord of the Rings and aren't a semi-mythical retelling of ages past from an in-universe source.
Philosophy Tube is to philosophy what Moviebob is to movies. Only propping up what their smooth minds understand and conform to their particular worldviews.I know Friday Night Tights apparently makes Bob seethe for whatever fucking reason, but what in the fuck is he going on about? The text messages?
Also, Philosophy troon is a worthless narcissist, if you want to learn philosophy read a fucking book.
