Quite possibly the best fucking show on TV right now, if not easily the most offensive and amazingly accurate when it doles out the hits on everything from Anal Probes to Peruvian pan flute bands. If your not a fan, your an idiot! Or a Russian.
The hardest thing about filmmaking is accurately communicating the strange things in your head that seem important. This is the reason that Spike Jonez is basically my hero. He comes up with abstract, high-concept ideas and manages to turn them into amazing finished products. Here's some videos of a few of his previous works.
Season 5, episode 7 "Gotta Look Up to Get Down." Vince is still screwing himself (and Turtle over) by being Mr. Nice Guy while Ari gets the chance of a lifetime for killing a guy. That sounds about right. Vince:
Season 4, Episode 8 "Paddy’s Pub: The Worst Bar in Philadelphia” Kidnappings, Two man dick handling, and a diabetic cat. These are what you’re in for in this episode.
Season 5, Episode 3 "Baby Shower" We expect Jan and Angela to be total bitches, but we expect more from you, Pam. Michael, Jan and Holly:
Season 12, Episode 9 "Breast Cancer Show Ever" Cartman's disrespectful display during Wendy's presentation about breast cancer leads to them having a good old fashioned fight on the playground. Plot:
It's easy to appreciate the Tricia Helfers and Hayden Panettieres currently strolling across our TV screens, making us disappointed with the caliber of girls that are actually willing to spend time with us.
The Onion, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert are funny because they have come from comedy. The writers and producers have a comedic background, and have made careers out of intelligent humor. When you try to do funny news in the other direction—by starting with news and letting news people run the show—it’s always a disaster. Now we have a new one, from D.L. Hughley and CNN.
Season 1, Episode 5 "Power Hungry" This time our rag-tag group of investigators goes after a guy who generates incredible amounts of electricity when he gets flustered. Wait, is this Heroes? No, Fringe, that's right. Plot:
Season 3, Episode 5 "Angles and Monsters" We're back from last week's trip to the future and everything is going to hell, fast. Plus, we finally get to meet Arthur Petrelli and his super eyebrows. Suresh:
You know when you’re really into a girl when even the little post coital ditties she pens don’t turn you off. So Roger must have it pretty bad for Jane, because her musings on the sticky sheets of the Waldorf Astoria enchant him like a snake charmer stiffening a Cobra, and dear Jane gets struck with a marriage proposal.
Recap: Season 5, episode 6 "ReDOMption" After last week's trip (get it?) to the desert, the guys are back in civilization. Vince's career rests on Ari's golf game and Dom is back and, shockingly, in trouble with the law. Ari:
Recap: Season 5, Episode 2 "Business Ethics" I almost feel bad calling this a bad episode, because it was still funnier than most other things on TV, but compared to the premiere from two weeks ago, "Business Ethics" is a bit of a drag. At least we got to see Dwight piss into a soda bottle. Michael and Holly:
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.
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.
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
We only have so many eyeballs, which means we need a little help covering every little thing that happens on TV. We're looking for aspiring writers, or at least people who speak English, to write some episode recaps for us. You'll get a byline and everything. If you want in, send a sample recap of the latest episode of your favorite TV show to FeedbackATscreenjunkies.com.
Season 3, Episode 4: "I Am Become Death." This week we're taking another trip four years into the future, when—wait for it—the world is going to end! Who would've thought? Peter:
The Vatican has planned a 139-hour bible reading marathon on Italian TV in hopes of making the church more cool. They are calling it “a sort of ‘Big Brother’ of the Holy Scriptures, but with really high cultural value.” Wow.
Episode 2.10, “The Inheritance” starts on Pete Campbell listing potential clients in a meeting with Don and the bunch. Looks like the team is headed to Pasadena to schmooze with the aerospace industry about finding ways to sell their image. Back in the bedroom with his wife, there’s still tension about the no-baby, and Pete is not hearing any of it.
Recap: Season 5, Episode 5 "The Truth Seekers" Hey, look at that. Vince still can't get a job. But rather than addressing the cliffhanger set up at the end of last week's episode, the gang takes off into the dessert to trip balls. Vince:
I guess all of that Simpsons money should be more than enough to buy Ralph Wiggum a nice Bimmer, but he doesn't have to flaunt it like that. Cartoon characters are real, right? I hope so. Otherwise all of that stock I bought in the Planet Express delivery company isn't going to be worth much. But then again, I guess no stock is worth much right now. Take that economy!
A prison beating is a great start to a TV show. Recap: Season 1, episode 5. We're introduced to a few new characters who happen to be in jail. The member, Otto, arranges for his buddy Chuck to get some protection from the club when he gets out.
Recap: Season 1, episode 4. We start out in a diner where a creepy-looking guy orders the spiciest sandwich he can think of and watches construction workers through the window. Suddenly, there's a huge explosion, and as the workers are running, our bad breath-having friend walks into the epicenter, calls someone on the phone and says, "It has arrived."
If I had to pick a character from the DC universe to get his or her own TV show, Robin would probably have been somehwere near the bottom of the list near Hawkman, but The Graysons, which tells the story of the Boy Wonder before he falls in with Batman has apparently gotten the green light by the CW. Here's hoping it's not another Birds of Prey. Yikes.
As weird and conservative as politics get in the US of A, we usually don’t have the Pat Robertsons and Jerry Falwells (R.I.P.) calling for the death of TV executives and show presenters over ‘immoral’ content. Saudi Arabia is a tad different.
With 20 seasons and a successful movie under their belts, the next logical expansion of the Simpsons empire would be a spin-off. If it's going to happen, here's a list of characters that would be perfect in the spotlight, plus a few that would totally suck. 13. Kent Brockman
Recap: Season 3, episode 3. With last week's premiere extravaganza in the bag, there are lots of new mysteries to unravel and lots of new super powers to be jealous of.
Recap: Season 1, episode 4. Last week's episode was all that eventful, but this week's piece of the story is a little more exciting. We get to see our first vampire bar and Jason gets a boner that he can't get rid of. We've all been there, brother.
Episode 2.9 opens on Don in a hotel room. He’s not looking so hot. Marilyn Monroe, however, is way worse. She’s dead and the ladies of Sterling Cooper are taking it to heart. Betty Draper listens to the news of Monroe’s OD over a standing breakfast of red wine and broken nuptial sadness.
