'Downton Abbey' Intro Gets The 'Martin' Treatment

It's not that drastic of a connection. Both shows feature silly costumes. Admit it. You'd watch if only to see Hugh Bonneville's portrayal of Sheneneh.

Catsterpiece Classics Presents 'Downton Tabby'

From the makers of 'Upstairs Downstairs... With a Sh*tload of Cats'. Downton Abbey with cats. It's got sex, drama, and most importantly, a cat wearing a pretty little dress. And this cat is waaaaaaay cuter than Lady Edith. Not only is this adorable, but it perfectly sends up the events of the show. However, I do feel a bit ripped off that we didn't get to see a cat wearing a tuxedo or an O'Brien kitty wig. I'm hoping the Christmas special fulfills these needs and reinvigorates my faith in the show.


Conan's 'Walking Dead' Episode Intro Is Perfect

And it didn't even involve bear masturbation. In order to kick off last night's special Walking Dead-themed episode of Conan, Coco visited the backwoods of Georgia to show how the late night host fared during the Zombie Apocalypse. It's incredibly well-done. All in all, I find Zombie Conan much more enjoyable than Zombie Jay Leno. My only qualm is that we didn't get to see a zombified Masturbating Bear. But that's really more of an issue for me to take up with science.


'The Wire' Gets The Musical Treatment It Doesn't Deserve

I demand a ditty entitled "Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit!" At this point, we'll take whatever Wire-related content we can get. If that happens to be a Funny or Die spoof musical, so be it. The fact that it actually features the character Omar (Michael Kenneth Williams) is just the icing on the cake. A few things readily apparent from this clip: Michael Kenneth Williams has a truly terrible singing voice. Just awful. And he can move his legs around Michael Flatley, Lord of the Dance style. After viewing this, we can all agree that The Wire would have finally gotten some critical acclaim if they'd shoehorned a lot more song and dance numbers into it. Just like they do on the streets of Baltimore.


'Big Hero 6' Gets Given The 'Unnecessary Censorship' Treatment

Why are they so vulgar? The thing about Disney movies is that they're rarely edgy. Which makes them unrealistic. In real life, people swear and say terrible things. In order to reflect THAT reality, Kyle J. Britt has given the unnecessary censorship treatment to the superhero film Big Hero 6. And we learn that Beymax is kind of vulgar, as are most inflatable balloon men. (In my own personal experience. I don't want to generalize.) Britt has done this work-up before on movies like The Amazing Spider-Man and Frozen. I guess it was just a matter of time before he took to a film that was still in the theaters. (A.V. Club)


'Star Wars: Episode VII' Trailer Also Gets The 'Spaceballs' Treatment

The Schwartz Awakens? Word on the geek street is that the new Star Wars: Episode VII trailer is set to become the most-viewed movie trailer of all time. No surprise there; it's Star Wars. It should also be no surprise that the trailer is being recut, effed-with, and parodied in just about every way imaginable. And this time, it's Filmgeekery doing Spaceballs, the Mel Brooks parody of the original three Star Wars installments. The trailer is really just Spaceballs set to the sounds and dialogue of the new film. And if you don't like this, you're a joyless monster.


'Paddington' Trailer Light On The Scares This Time

Ooooohhhh..... It's for kids. October is the month to sink into movie theater chairs and watch disturbing images of the macabre from behind our fingers. In keeping with this spirit, we have the full trailer for Paddington. Ben Whishaw replaces Colin Firth as the voice of the bear with the remorseless, glass eyes in this fun romp for the entire family. Here Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville plays the British version of Charles Grodin's character from Beethoven, when a ragamuffin bear house guest turns his life and home upside down. Despite revealing all the major events of the film in this trailer, it's looks like perfectly suitable holiday entertainment and not the horrific psychological thriller it was originally perceived to be. Though, you can expect a horror recut of this trailer in... 5... 4... 3...
