the problem is that when he finally plays it and hates it, we're all going to tear him from his throne of bone and end him forever for such a gross transgression.

Amazing games.  If he doesn't like them, he should have to attend trial.

I swear right as I heard Rob talking about Witcher 3 improving the way Geralt controls, I thought he was about to use the word jank.
And the last movie I saw that comes to mind as being really mature and adult, etc, was Nightcrawler but I don't keep up with many recent movies.

edit: Points for mentioning Mark of Kri, btw.

Is jank a bad word to day these days? 

Nightcrawler was amazing!  Derek was right to point it that it was a reductionist argument to say that movies are targeted towards children, but I really feel like television is pushing narrative structure, characters, and themes in a way that most (again, I say most) movies simply aren't interested in even attempting.  Sure, you have Ex Machina pushing the ideas of what it means to be human, but for everyone one or two of those "under the radar" films you have tons of audience pleasers designed to bring in a lot of cash.  Nothing wrong with that, of course, but I love how television shows like The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Americans and Game of Thrones attempt to try new things in the medium.  It's also way easier to have these "slow burn" stories when you have hours and hours to tell them. 

And The Mark of Kri was amazing.  Real shame what happened to the sequel...

Well I think there's so much competition and options for viewers on tv that they've realized that aiming for the largest possible audience won't really help them like it does for game or movie makers. As a result they might be more willing to try new stuff or go for that niche audience.
As opposed to before when TV actors were seen as somewhat lesser than their movie counterparts, we got a lotta big names moving back to TV. Also with the crazy saturation of superhero movies and series of movies, signing up for one of those series is a big commitment. Hell,Hugh Jackman has been Wolverine for the past 15 years, that's crazy.

TLDR, we may be heading for a new tv golden age.

Not a bad word, but it makes me laugh every time I hear it, and then I think of that random npc Jank at the dock colony in Xenosaga 1.
I think a prime example of good and new TV is Mr Robot and come to think of it, maybe Netflix making their own original stuff plus Amazon/Hulu have made TV really good again because competition.

edit: So for this last episode, about Omega Labyrinth, you guy were acting like it wants to be something really awesome and stuff, but it doesn't seem any different than Compile Heart's regular trend of doing wacky perverted stuff, seeing as it's about a girl with a flat chest on a quest to enlarge her boobs so it's definitely not subtle and not pretending to be deep.
