On Sundays, the McKenzie’s gather round the new Zenith TV to watch a blank screen.
While the family has always had difficulty making choices, now they rely on their active imaginations to bring them their favorite programs.
In their minds, little Christine is watching The Flintstones; Jerry is enjoying The Andy Griffith Show; Mom is watching cooking with Julia Child, and dad is enjoying his favorite porn, which is why he’s always using the newspaper to shield his crotchal regions.
Before there were 300 cable channels, there were only 6 or 8 channels, and life was much less complicated.
If only they had LoveMidCentury65 back then, life would be far more exciting for the McKenzies. Maybe when dad figures out how to plug the TV in, they can enjoy all of life’s channels!
The best part of season one of #GilmoreGirls was actually Dean’s hair, just ask Eleni! 😜😉 Thank you all for making the first season of Coffee With a Shot of Cynicism so much fun! The last episodes of our first season are now available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Who’s ready for season two? 👀

A Serious Man (2009) ∙
Directors: the Coen brothers
DP: Roger Deakins ∙
From the critics: “We identify it as a Job story because its central character is tormented by his failure to account for the miseries that befall him.” - K. L. Evans ∙
Bad things happen to good people, and bad things happen to bad people. This seems to be Larry Gopnik’s experience, much to his surprise and chagrin. The Coens’ darkly funny film about a Jewish physics professor living in the 1960s fits right into their oeuvre of nihilistic movies. A Serious Man mirrors the biblical book of Job, as everything in Larry’s life suddenly falls to pieces, and any advice he is given on how to proceed is empty and meaningless. The Coens packed this film to the brim with rich visuals, dialogue, and themes. It may be their magnum opus. ∙
Donnie Darko (2001) ∙
Director: Richard Kelly
DP: Steven B. Poster ∙
From the critics: “By film’s end, Kelly has expertly transformed his comfortable ‘80s milieu into an apocalyptic sweat chamber nervously situated between moral complacency and heartbreaking could-have-been hopefulness.” - Ed Gonzalez ∙
I saw the less ambiguous director’s cut of Donnie Darko before watching the original cut, which may be why I believe the sci-fi elements of this film are really a facade. They remain dark, fun, and interesting, but they veil an indictment of the false moralism of the ‘80s that covered the widespread abuse of that era. Donnie’s battle is not against time. He’s fighting against a culture that uplifts people like Jim Cunningham. ∙
