Wednesday TV Preview

Wednesday, February 11 by

Unlike last week's rather unexciting lineup, tonight's chock full of TV goodies. Lost continues to unhinge from the boundaries of time, Demetri Martin premieres his new show (haven't you seen all our ads?!), and crazy Joaquin Phoenix guests on Letterman, where you know he's going to continue his questionable hi-jinks. What a night! Your preview after the jump.

The 18 Best Rockumentaries of ALL TIME

Wednesday, February 11 by

After paying an exorbitant fee on Ticketmaster just to print your tickets out (convenient and immediate), you still have to scour for parking, only to wait in line behind whatever flannel print happens to be popular at the moment, to stand in another line to show your I.D. for foamy, overpriced draft beer in a plastic cup. After securing that perfect spot, to the left of the guy in the stovepipe hat and respectfully buffered from the fledgling larva of a mosh pit. The band lumbers onstage.They rush through eight songs, including that one that your girlfriend recognizes, “I know this! I didn’t know these guys sang this! I like this song.”Through the miracle of home DVD, you can now enjoy your favorite bands in the coolest of dive bars, “Your Couch”. These magical discs carry backstage interviews, a biography, and occasionally a sound check. These are rockumentaries. And they rock. Enjoy them at your leisure at home, where the bathroom isn’t blanketed with an inch of urine.

Fringe: The Case Of The Melting Face

Wednesday, February 11 by

"Me and Mr. Jones" should be Olivia's song of choice. It's pretty obvious that the evil teleporting Mr. Jones has an infatuation with her. Why else would he be drawing pictures of her in his German cell? We may think that he is crazy, but maybe Mr. Jone's obsession with Olivia is not just because she's blond and carries a gun….. It maybe because Olivia is an x-file herself. Here's the recappage and decide for yourself.

Land Of The Lost Trailer

Tuesday, February 10 by

Land Of The Lost was one of my favorite shows as a kid. But from a mix of too much beer, some head trauma, and the fact that I was very young when it was on, I can not remember anything other than the intro song. Which means that if this adaptation misses the mark, I wont be able to tell. And I'll be too busy laughing at Danny McBride. The man is a genius. Director: Brad SilberlingCast: Will Ferrell, Anna Friel, Danny R. McBride, Pollyanna McIntosh, Michael PapajohnSynopsis: Three adults inadvertently stumble into a mysterious land populated by dinosaurs and other creatures, including the mysterious and dangerous race of Sleestak.Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy. Release Date: June 5, 2009 

TONIGHT: The Whitest Kids U’Know On IFC

Tuesday, February 10 by

Sketch comedy is kinda dead, and the millions of people who can upload unfunny videos to the internet are the ones who killed it. The Whitest Kids U'Know are one of the few troupes that still seem to be able to do something with the format. They moved to IFC last year and have been putting out solid content ever since. The show is only 15 minutes per episode, defiantly NSFW, and damn funny. New show tonight at 7. More vids at their IFC Site. Their first movie, Miss March is coming out March 13th.

See You Sunday

Tuesday, February 10 by

MTV Brings four shows to the Sunday Night Slot, including The College Humor Show, Fantsy Factory, Nitro Circus, and How's Your News.

REVIEWD: MTV’s ‘See You Sunday’ Is Hit And Miss

Tuesday, February 10 by

MTV has launched an attack on your Sunday Night attention span with four new shows aimed at the male demo. Bottom line: I’ve come to not really expect much from MTV, so I was pretty impressed with the lineup. The real gem in the bunch is Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus while the least entertaining is Rob Drydek’s Fantasy Factory. Either way it makes for a solid 2 hours of Sunday night, at least until Entourage comes back. Here’s the breakdown on each.

Showdown at the OK Corral

Tuesday, February 10 by

Most of the time is spent around the crash site, with Nathan narrating the whole thing to some listener who isn't revealed till the last few minutes of the episode. The Heroes gather and Parkman rushes off to save Daphen from visions his white-psyhic eyes gave him, snd Ando and Daphne meet up and rush off to save crashed heroes. And meanwhile, Sylar is still hunting for his daddy, and comes across a mother and a son whom he tortures pyschologically, before the son reveals a hidden power. It's a flawed, yet taut and fascinating Heroes, right after the jump.

24 Recap: 3pm-4pm

Monday, February 9 by

The episode begins with some goons dragging out Henry Taylor from the trunk of a car. While that's going on, Dubaku is out and about in the public, listenning to President Taylor give a Press Conference over the TV. He walks in through a convenient store, and down into another, much seedier hideout, where he finds Taylor sitting in chair, gagged. "Does your wife love you? For your sake, I hope so."Matobo has been brought in secretly to White House to meet up with the President, along with Bauer and his crack team of ex-CTU'ers. The Prez is still continuing with her invasion of Sangala, "I wan't an explanation and I want it NOW." The Prez asks Bauer and his team. They warn her that there exists massive corruption within the system. FBI Agent Walker backs up Bauer and the team as well. Then Dubaku calls.

Tokyo! Trailer

Monday, February 9 by

This trailer makes the movie look amazing. Here's the blurb:In TOKYO!, three visionary directors come together for an omnibus triptych examining the nature of one unforgettable city as it’s shaped by the disparate people who live, work (and run amok) inside an enormous, constantly evolving, densely populated Japanese megalopolis — the ravishing and inimitable Tokyo. In the tradition of such films as NEW YORK STORIES, NIGHT ON EARTH, PARIS JE T’AIME and its forthcoming sequel NEW YORK I LOVE YOU, TOKYO! addresses the timeless question of whether we shape cities, or if cities shape us — in the process revealing the rich humanity at the heart of modern urban life.So the blurb actually makes it sound sort of boring. What's a 'triptych?' But the trailer makes it look rad. Im going to trust the trailer. It comes out March 6th.

Monday, February 9 by
