A really cool article from poplurker about MST3k, which is an all-time favorite of mine, and the women behind the jokes, the fandom, and more.
An excellent review and historical contextualizing of Netflix’s new Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling show, by Mairead Small Staid for the Ringer.
Obviously The System Works:
NBC’s position seems to be that they own any content played on any of their programs? I guess it’s nice to see their position put so bluntly.
Community is my favorite show on TV right now not titled “Archer” or “The Venture Bros.” and despite how little I care about ratings, it’s good to see the hard (and great) work of the cast & crew rewarded in the ratings.
My favorite new show of last season comes back, and I am happy. The DVD of Season 1 would be a great thing to add to your post-Christmas list, as it releases December 28th.
TV and print presenters/journalists tend to avoid, as Bunk Moreland would say, “Giving a fuck when it ain’t their turn to give a fuck.”
Terradalou, The Bob. Mr. Show is the true way. According to the interview, Bob’s character Saul Goodman is in 10 episodes of Breaking Bad this season.
It’s good to see that Conan can still write like this. He says, among other things, that moving the Tonight Show to 12:05 will result in what “[He] honestly believe is its destruction. “
Premiered last night at midnight. I grabbed my copy from iTunes (for some strange reason, there are no torrents), but you can watch it the legal way on adultswim.com. That is an order. Things of note based upon my first viewing:
- No Monarch in the season opener. Feels weird.
- I have a feeling the CGC-grader-as-timestamp was someone’s 4am miracle.
- Possibly the longest post-credits sequence in the show’s history?
- I’m expecting for a fan remix that puts the story in chronological order. I guess you’d need a torrent for that, though, and the show is MIA on the main trackers.
- Here’s the real cover to Marvel Comics #1, faithfully reproduced in the episode. ComicsPriceGuide.com says this issue is worth $360,000 for a CGC-graded 9.6 copy.
Overall, though, bravo. This is Jackson and Doc’s growth spurt as storytellers, and we’re all being made witness to it. I can’t wait for more.
This had better be for real. My emotions cannot take much more of this.
A truly Shatnerian performance. There is music and everything. Glorious. Thank you, Conan.
It’s a kids show, and it’s totally real and not a joke. The show starts this summer on Cartoon Network, and it looks like the most fun children are legally allowed to have on TV.
