For some, a 75-minute film of famous and talented comedians letting rip a steady stream of explicit jokes and messy misadventures involving fecal matter is an easy sell. Sign me up. For others, some pushing and straining may be needed to get them to plop down and watch.

Those hesitant viewers are just the ones the film’s creators are hoping to bag.

With the funny and sometimes cringe-inducing docu-comedy Poop Talk, comedians try—and do—use humor and tales of their deeply personal bodily functions to squeeze out the humanity of it all. The ultimate goal, its creators told Ars, is to flush the stigma associated with the stinky act—not to mention a whole host of gastrointestinal disorders.

Apple employees are reportedly walking into walls at the company’s fancy new glass office

 People in glass offices should probably watch where they’re going. Collisions have been one very clear downside of Apple’s $427 million spaceship office in Cupertino, according to a story out of Bloomberg. The “people familiar with the incidents” won’t say how widespread a phenomenon all of this is, but there’s a definite potential downside to glass walls in… Read More

Watch: CollegeHumor takes us on a safari through the media industry

“Sadly, the endangered species of ‘real journalism’ now exists almost entirely in captivity … behind a paywall.”

To mark the kickoff of Code Media 2018, CollegeHumor decided to go wild, literally.

The comedy site opened this year’s conference with a hilarious guide to the media industry, in the style of a British nature documentary. And now you can watch the whole video here:

“Sadly, the endangered species of ‘real journalism’ now exists almost entirely in captivity … behind a paywall,” says the not-quite-David-Attenborough narrator.

Among other sites, the video also visits the “Amazon rainforest,” which is expanding into homes, drones and food; the “media ocean,” where journalists have discovered bitcoin and “can’t shut the fuck up about it”; and the “content plains,” where seemingly every company is excreting mountains of unwatchable original content.

“Though it may look terrible,” the narrator intones, “it is terrible.”

‘Everything Sucks!,’ ‘Our Cartoon President,’ and More TV You Must See This Week

By Karen Gomez

Plus: a new Alan Ball series, the latest Netflix original romantic drama, and a Patty Hearst documentary series.

This week, emotions and drama run high: Netflix debuts a coming of age story full of ’90s nostalgia, along with a romantic drama featuring Christopher Walken. Sundance Now premieres an endearing series about two deaf best friends, while Six Feet Under and True Blood creator Alan Ball returns to HBO with a new show filled with cultural tensions. To mix things up, CNN looks back at the bizarre saga of Patty Hearst, as Stephen Colbert’s cartoon parody of the Commander-in-Chief brings on the laughs.

To help you keep track of the most important programs over the next seven days, here’s our guide to everything worth watching, whether it’s on broadcast, cable, or streaming for February 11th –17th (all times Eastern):

Our Cartoon President (Showtime, Sunday 8pm)

After making it through the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency, there are two options: you can either cry about it or you can make a satirical cartoon show about it. At least that’s what late night host Stephen Colbert did. Created by Colbert alongside Chris Licht, Matt Lapin, Tim Luecke, and R.J. Fried, the recurring segment of The Late Show is expanded to its own 10-episode series set in a parallel animated universe where the White House opens its doors for an “all access” look at the daily life of the Commander-in-Chief (voiced by Jeff Bergman) and his cabinet. Our Cartoon President offers a healthy coping mechanism for the daily news.

Here and Now (HBO, Sunday 9pm)

Writer and producer Alan Ball is back, breaking a six-year dry spell with a daring gamble. His latest HBO series is a drama that follows two different families in Portland: one is headed by a philosophy professor (Tim Robbins) and his attorney wife (Holly Hunter), with three adopted children from Vietnam, Liberia, and Colombia and a biological daughter; the other is centered around an Iranian-American psychiatrist (Peter Macdissi). Naturally, the show explores their bonds and experiences in modern-day, culturally tense America, but there is also a supernatural twist. Sosie Bacon, Jerrika Hinton, Raymond Lee, and Daniel Zovatto also star.

The Radical Story of Patty Hearst (CNN, Sunday 9pm)

Almost 40 years later, the story of Patty Hearst remains one of the most bizarre and mystifying chapters of American history. Her transformation from kidnapped heiress to bank-robbing member of the same group that took her hostage still puzzles many of us. This six-part documentary series traces the case, from the kidnapping to Hearst’s trial and combines archival footage with interviews with news reporters, former LAPD and FBI officers, friends, Hearst’s ex-fiancé, and her lawyers, and even a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army itself — all in an attempt to answer the ultimate question: was Hearst a victim or a villain?

This Close (Sundance Now, Wednesday)

In a time when stories about disability abound, but opportunities for disabled actors are scarce, This Close feels like a breath of fresh air. Written by and starring deaf actors Shoshannah Stern and Josh Feldman, this six-episode half-hour series explores the relationship between two best friends: the newly engaged Kate (Stern) and recently-broken-up Michael (Feldman), as they navigate life and love together. Zach Gilford, Cheryl Hines, Marlee Matlin, and Colt Prattes join the duo in their heart-warming shenanigans. A good pick to binge-watch with your soul sister/brother on Valentine’s Day.

Everything Sucks! (Netflix, Friday)

Nostalgia is the emotional currency of modern TV and film, and Netflix knows it. Following the trail blazed by Stranger Things, the streaming service brings a new original series featuring a group of young misfits living in a beloved past decade. Set in 1996, Everything Sucks! follows the members of Boring High School’s drama and A/V clubs as they band together to create their own movie and brave the ups and downs of teenage life. This 10-episode, coming-of-age dramedy comes from writer Ben York Jones (Like Crazy) and stars up-and-comers Peyton Kennedy, Jahi Winston, Patch Darragh, Claudine Nako, Sydney Sweeney, and Elijah Stevenson.

Irreplaceable You (Netflix, Friday)

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: boy meets girl in elementary school; boy and girl grow up and get engaged; girl thinks she’s pregnant; turns out it’s not a baby, it’s terminal cancer; girl is determined to find a worthy girlfriend for boy before her time’s up. Veep producer and director Stephanie Laing makes her feature film debut with this heart-string-tugging story starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michiel Huisman, Christopher Walken, Kate McKinnon, Steve Coogan, and Tami Sagher. If you’re still feeling the tenderness of Valentine’s Day, Irreplaceable You is the drama fix you were looking for.
