After this, I’ll only have one more old watching list to post, and then I will be caught up to 2008. But expect a new list of shows in January :)
Cartoons listed first, then live/reality shows.
When people suggest stuff to us, I often say that our plate is full in terms of watching stuff. Know that not only did we watch everything in this post in 2004, but we also watched 94 movies. :) (more…)

This post is quite long, but chock full of good recommendations — especially for animation lovers. Plenty of live shows too. If I had time, I’d post each one of these as a separate review. But I’ll never have that kind of time.
I’ve started to move towards listing weirdest/rarest stuff first, and more common stuff later… After all, everyone can guess that I watch South Park…
As far as awards go? Not sure. Best superhero endeavor is definitely Heroes. Best drama is Weeds. Funniest show is Tim & Eric, Awesome Show, Great Job!. Funniest cartoon is South Park — but Xavier:Renegade Angel has South Park completely beaten in ridiculousness, and Code Monkeys has South Park beaten in terms of freshness. As for live comedy, Sarah Silverman is funnier than Human Giant. Barely. But most of the good cartoons were funnier than anything live-action would have to offer.

So I had this dream inspired by the latest Weeds episode. I’m not sure if I was Nancy Botwin, or if Carolyn was Nancy Botwin. I think it was me, since I was doing all the talking. We were at Guillermo García Gómez’s place and I had told him I was not going to run anymore drugs. Him and his cronies then took out their guns and marched us to the pool in the backyard, and finally we were like, “Fine, fine, I’ll continue running the drugs!” Being held at gunpoint sucks. So then at some point, I/Nancy Botwin had to tell Andy Botwin that it was basically time to move on and get out of town again. But since I was also Clint, there was a scene where I was talking to Carolyn’s brother, and asking him, “Do you know where I can get an unregistered firearm?” I needed a gun, since it was quite likely Guillermo García Gómez would see that I was trying to leave town, and try to kill us to tie up any loose ends we might represent. The whole situation really sucked, and I/Nancy Botwin was quite paranoid. I want to say that I did start to flee, as I vaguely remember driving through some cornfields.
Also, there was an intense scene where I was trying to kill our cat, Oranjello. He wasn’t dying fast enough when I squeezed him, so I had to hold my other hand over his mouth and nose to accelerate the smothering. Not sure if this was a separate dream or not, but it was quite intense and sad. (more…)

Time for an even-more-pointless-than-usual post — some celebrity gawking.
So anyway: As a kid, I was soooooo pissed off when they canceled Misfits Of Science after 1 measly season. There was never enough science fiction on TV, and I thought the show was the bee’s knees. Because it is not available on DVD (like more shows than people realize), I have had to resort to alternate methods to acquired a personal copy of this series. And I noticed that… Courtney Cox (!!) was in it. I also never noticed her on Family Ties either. The things you find out from Wikipedia… I think is the hottest friend from Friends, so I had to save some snapshots… So here they are: A much younger Courtney Cox, from way back in 1985, before some of my friend were even born:

We started keeping our watching lists long before we started blogging them. Periodically, I will post an old, un-posted watching list. Here are all the shows we watched in 2003. Yes, this is a tad late. :) (more…)

CENSORSHIP: 60 Minutes segment having to do with Alabama mysteriously not shown in Alabama – viewers got BLACK SCREEN. But JUST for that segment.Posted by Clint Jaysiel under Articles, Censorship, Live-Action Shows, Media, News, Politicians, Politics, Video
Alabamans got black screen during Don Siegelman piece. If anyone really believes this was a “technical glitch” in New York that prevented a broadcast about Alabama from broadcasting in Alabama — then you are quite naive and gullible. PRESSURE CAME FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, says the article. I believe it.

I’m going to try to be careful about spoilers here, but….. Wow. Just… Wow. Didn’t see that coming.

As previously announced in April, Tim & Eric‘s Awesome Show Great Job has been renewed for *30* new episodes. The first 10 were absolutely some of the most amazingly mind-blowing, psychedelic, tripped-out, weird, absurd, and sometimes purposefully bad television episodes that I have ever watched. Think: Wonder Showzen (possibly the greatest show ever), minus puppets & children, plus public access television & creepy people. Anyway, The Onion AV club just posted an excellent interview with Tim & Eric. It answers a lot of questions people who watch the show might ask. In part of their quest for the absurd, and desire to satirize our culture, they made fake Shrek 3 promos. Of course the copylords had them removed, even though parody is fair use! You can read about the Shrek 3 promos HERE and HERE. Also: They have a live internet-only show, which can be watched (as reruns) HERE. If anyone can find these promos, or the late-nite show (as files, not links) please contact me. And now — some YouTube clips from the show. These will not last and will eventually be taken down. I suggest not watching sober. Read on for the clips…At least watch the Child Clown Outlet “commercial”: (more…)

LINKS: Westboro Baptist shitheads lose $11M lawsuit, WEEN INTERVIEW!!, gun cameras, armed robot boats, Iran-Contra again?Posted by Clint Jaysiel under Articles, Audio, Celebrities, Copyright, Geek Politics, Hardware, Live-Action Shows, Media, Music, News, People, Politics, Religion, Technology, Technology War, The War On Drugs, Video
And best of all, Mininova Closes Distribution Deal for TV-Show. A bittorrent indexing site getting a producer credit in a TV show in exchange for advertising? This is actually pretty damn amazing news. Mininova is the best public torrent index out there. Gun cameras are a great idea, while robotic gunboats really isn’t. WEEN INTERVIEW. (more…)
