One of the Best Youtube Channels
I discovered this channel thanks to Oliver's custom Superman III trailer which made it look far better than it is (I say this as a fan).
Oliver's content has excellent production value, on par with traditional television (and exceeding TV when it comes to the content). The Retrospectives are in-depth, researched well and very fair. The rare times he makes an observation I disagree with he generally includes a qualifier that is hard to argue with.
A big part of the appeal is Oliver's delivery. As a fan of the material he covers he brings a lot of enthusiasm and it really makes you want to sit down and watch the film again.
Pick one of your favorite films and watch his Retrospective of it, you won't be disappointed!
The Good Guys (2010)
Doesn't Take Itself Too Seriously
I went into this show with no expectations or preconceived notions, I didn't recognize Whitley under that epic '70s mustache and didn't know Colin was Tom Hank's son. So thankfully I gave it a fair shake and I'm glad I did.
There's a nice mix of humor, action, callbacks to the early 80s and the occasional classic rock soundtrack. The pilot is one of the best for a series I've ever watched. A few more episodes in and it got even better once the buddy cop chemistry started to form. Whitley's character is stuck in the early 80s; he doesn't trust computers, "foreign-sicks" or smarty phones. It plays perfectly off of Hank's contemporary young go-getter.
You can tell it was a great show because it was on Fox and canceled immediately. Fortunately it would seem the creators were aware of this ahead of time and although you only get the pleasure of 20 episodes it doesn't leave you hanging at the end. Highly recommended!
