You missed Bill Cosby. You didn’t even know you did, but you did. With his crescendos into that high-pitched voice, the dancing while the eyes roll upward, and the sweaters. Oh those, glorious sweaters. Come January you won’t have to subsist on late night TV Land reruns any more. Sony, NBC and The Coz have gotten together to bring NBC a multigenerational sitcom, starring the comedian.

The project will star Cosby as Jonathan Franklin, a grandfather who lives with his extended family, yada, yada, patriarch, etc.

It’s going to be the Cosby show with more people. That’s what this sounds like. The show will be written and produced by TV veteran Mike O’Malley and will likely stick to the multicamera format, so it sounds like they’re not going for anything terribly groundbreaking here. Take Cosby, put him in front of a camera, let him do stuff.

That’s how you make a hit show.

And here’s this in celebration:

Just kidding. Not at all.

Long before you and your friends were vacationing in the land of tacky woolen garments with ugly sweater holiday parties, Bill Cosby was…the Coz was LIVIN’ there, man.

Cosby, who is now known to a younger generation who wore ugly sweaters, ate Jello Puddin Pops, and said things like “zip-zap-zoodle” a lot, was a pioneer of a certain type of sweater that rappers and athletes took a step further with the equally-butt-ugly Coogi sweater.

Such gratuitous ugliness actually came about due to two practical concerns: Cosby liked to be comfortable on set, and he was frequently the subject of close-ups, which would reveal wardrobe inconsistencies when using two different takes. Seeing as how Cosby sweaters are pretty much magic-eye puzzles that completely disorient the most astute of viewers, they served to mask the jump.

Also, they are colorful and ridiculous. There’s much more to the (great) story here. (via The A.V. Club)

Flippin’-and-a-floppin’-floppity-boop!!!

7 Wildly Unnecessary Porn Parodies http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-wildly-unnecessary-porn-parodies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-wildly-unnecessary-porn-parodies/#comments Thu, 15 Sep 2011 13:18:19 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=228490 Don't ask about the pudding pop...just don't.

The post 7 Wildly Unnecessary Porn Parodies appeared first on Screen Junkies.

I suppose, once upon a time, porn parody movies made sense. I mean, I don’t really know who looks for slapstick and comedy in their porn, but when people were actually buying these movies, I guess it made sense to at attach your adult film to the brand of an established commercial one, even if it was in a pretty dumb fashion.

Well, that synergy will only get you so far. I understand the big parodies like Star Wars, and Indiana Jones, but some porn producers pursued parodies that were just awful and pretty damn unsexy. So we figured we would list a few of these wildly unnecessary parodies.

(I had to watch so much porn for this piece.)

7. Taxi Driver – Taxi Driver

Hmm. Travis Bickle, the protypical anti-hero, goes around banging chicks. Okay. I guess that’s a thing that could be made. Of course, I’m guessing the female lead won’t be Jodie Foster‘s character, the 14 year-old whore, but nothing would surprise me any more.

Nope. There’s her character. Right on the cover. Great.

6. The Cosby Show – Not The Cosby Show XXX

First of all – this intro is perhaps the funniest thing I have seen in six months. Please enjoy it. It’s safe for work, provided you don’t work at a Klan headquarters or something.

Beyond that, I have a number of issues with this production. But the only one worth addressing in this space is who wanders around a porn store and says to the clerk, “I love watching people have sex, but I don’t like it when one of them isn’t Bill Cosby“?

Has the well run dry? Couldn’t someone just do another Star Wars porn parody? Must we reach into the annals (hehe) of unsexy sitcoms and have people busting nuts to America’s first family? Is nothing sacred?

5. American Beauty – American Booty

OK. I get that “beauty” sounds like “booty.” But if that’s your only tenuous connection between your film and anything mildly erotic, you might want to change course. The non-porn version was a scathing social commentary on the hollowness of suburban life (which is so cliché that THAT should be parodied) as played out through the lives of a half-dozen miserable people.

You hard yet?

Yeah, me neither.
