Show Preview: The Chocolate News Surprises

Thursday, October 9 by

When I got the DVD screener for David Allen Grier’s new show, Chocolate News I was a little worried about watching it to review for the site. I figure I am 1) totally not the demographic, 2) use to “ethnically targeted” comedy shows being absolute crap. I honestly could not take Mencia.

Bonus Features: Links Worthy of a Thursday

Thursday, October 9 by

I have no idea what "Unleashed" is, but they seem to be disturbed by watching it, which is enough to make me interested. I guess it's the same part of my psyche that made me end up watching 2 girls 1 cup 60 times in a single week. That part of me is kind of messed up, but it's better than the part that makes me steal. Here are some links.

Preview: “Testees” Premiere Is Mental

Thursday, October 9 by

FX hit the ball out of the park when it took a chance on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and they're hoping to recreate that offensive, indy magic with their new series Testees. I have seen the premiere and I can tell you that it's almost as funny as it is totally ridiculous.

Doc Watch: Billy Corgan And The Infinite Oldness

Thursday, October 9 by

I would be interested in watching a behind the scenes sort of thing of Smashing Pumpkins touring back in 1996. But 2007 does not have the same appeal.

Discovery’s “Time Warp” Is Porn For Scientists

Thursday, October 9 by

The super slo-mo camera is the bread and butter of the Discovery Channel and now they've gone and made a whole show out of doing stuff at super-high frame rates. The results are actually pretty cool, even if the jackhammer one is a little…disturbing.

Triumph Takes On David Blaine

Thursday, October 9 by

Maybe I shouldn't give Triumph too much credit for making fun of an incredibly easy target like David Blaine, but I have yet to see anyone do it better. Conan's insult comic dog showed up to Blaine's last stunt where he hung upside down for a while for some reason. He also took a coffee break.

Recap: South Park and the Crystal Skull

Thursday, October 9 by

Season 12, Episode 8 "The China Problem". The guys had a long summer vacation and they have clearly saved up some of their frustrations to fuel the fall premiere. Eric and Butters take on our former Olympic hosts, the Chinese, while Kyle, Stan and Kenny try to nail George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg for "raping" Indiana Jones. Yes.

Eric Cartman’s 9 Most Evil Moments

Wednesday, October 8 by

South Park is back for the second part of season 12 and it has reminded me of how much I love hating Eric Cartman. That little boy has done some truly messed up stuff and this is some of the worst. Or should I say best? Whatever. 9. Molesting Butters

Mid Week Hump Dump

Wednesday, October 8 by

For the record, I would let Rachel Ray thread my corn. As long as she’s gentle. And does not have any hot sauce on her paws. It's truly amazing that this one got past the producers. And every day there are lots of things that get past us. Here are just a few.

Kremlin Gets Into Movie Biz

Wednesday, October 8 by

Second Commie-related post of the day. Here’s one from the International News Desk. The Kremlin is looking to have a ‘closer’ relationship with the movie business. If there’s anything we’ve ever learned about film, it’s that the way to make good ones is to put a government bureau in charge of it.

Che Trailer (In Spanish)

Wednesday, October 8 by

We know that we have been REALLY bad about staying good on our word of translating all posts into seven distinct world languages. So today we just wanted to extend a big hearty buenas! to our Spanish speaking Audience and put up this trailer of Che. Que Bueno! Fiesta! Naranja!

BREAKING NEWS: GEORGE CLOONEY GROWS MOUSTACHE

Wednesday, October 8 by

Guys, this one is right off the wires, so we only have one picture to substantiate it.  We left about 17 messages with George’s publicist but have not received a confirmation as of yet. There is some speculation that the moustache is not real, and is just part of an elaborate publicity stunt on the part of the Clooney camp.
