Is British humor the most overrated style of comedy? Seriously, everyone says British stand-up and TV shows are so good but there's really only two types, and neither are that interesting. You have LOL SO RANDUMB XD stuff like Monty Python, which takes absurdism to a ridiculous scale, and then "dry" humor, which basically consists of slice-of-life stories tinged with absurdism. Add to that the heavy sarcasm and self-deprecation, and it just seems rote and boring after a while. Shows play entirely off of shared awkwardness. What's more annoying is how people call it intelligent humor, when it's usually just people making silly faces and being awkward/ uncomfortable.

Watch this movie.
Seriously, if you like space movies, Moon, 2001, ect. You will LOVE this movie.
Has anyone else seen it yet?
I absolutely loved it.
It's what I've wanted to see in a space movie for a long time, it's what I -hoped- Sunshine would be.
It's shot like a found-footage movie,(No, not shaky cam, it's from cams set up in the spacecraft) the premise being that several astronauts are manning a mission to Europa and dealing with the vastness of space, fear, scientific drive...It was great.
