Ever wonder what the opposite of Jumping the Shark is? Turns out it’s “Growing the Beard” in reference to Commander William T. Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation. And now you know, and knowing is half the battle…
You know anything about Superman? The most vicious killer in the animal kingdom.
This is why Kevin Smith is a genius storyteller. This excerpt is the good Dr. Smith talking about his brief time working on the long in development hell Superman reboot. It’s pretty damned hilarious and if you dig it, I’d recommend checking out the “An Evening with Kevin Smith” series of college talks they are from, highly entertaining.
See, the internet is better than TV. I didn’t have to sit through a fucktardedly stupid ego-stroking awards show to watch the 2 actual minutes of humor. Thanks Dr. Horrible! (and Joss Whedon)!
I cannot tell a lie, Oklahoma is a disturbingly stupid state. 75% of OK high schoolers have no clue that some dude named George who’s face is smeared all over the funny green paper in their pockets was our first President and not just some funny guy with a wig.
Stay classy red states.
Alright pop-culture junkies, the Fall premiere season is right around the corner, dulling the stingy pain of the end of summer with the warm embrace of freshly scripted escapism. Whatever flavor you choose, here’s a handy alphabetized list of what comes back when. Of course, this doesn’t cover non-network faire, like Always Sunny (9/17 on FX).
I’m looking forward to:
30 Rock (Season 4) October 15th NBC
American Dad (Season 5) September 27th FOX
Family Guy (Season 8 ) September 27th FOX
The Big Bang Theory (Season 3) September 21st CBS
The Office (Season 6) September 17th NBC
V (Season 1) November 3rd ABC
So sure, September gets all the hype for bringing back TV shows from the doom of repeats and summer-crap-faire, but more and more of the stuff you actually want to watch is creeping further into the calendar. Like The Venture Bros, the best animated insanity on the tube, which doesn’t drop it’s Season 4 until bleak November. Hopefully this trailer can placate the maddening hunger for more of Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer’s brilliant absurdity. Go Team Venture!
Before they were teaching you the alphabet, how to count to 10 and the importance of sharing, the Muppets had a violent capitalist bent. Watch as they hawk Wilkins Coffee with the sort of cartoonish mayhem sadly lacking these days.
Wow. Isn’t this proof enough that censorship is a far greater evil than the bogeyman that is profanity? This sort of unintelligible malfeasance is certainly more damaging to young minds then the simple motherfucking reality of the matter.
