Oh yeah, Anna Paquins delicious front cushions!
Cool chay, I'll keep watching.

Yeah, I was wondering (since everyone else seems to) if she was going to nude up at any stage, and she does! Kudos to her. It's so weird hearing Stephen Moyer (Bill) with a southern accent when i'm used to hearing him speak like this

Chay, I would rub you on my dog so it would win. smile

True Blood is actually kind of ridiculous and lame, but I also love it. Naked Liz Caplan FTW.

Carcetti is played by an oirish guy!

Does he have to glue his top lip to his teeth to sound American, or is that just how he looks? Shit bugs me!

@BdC: Don't they cheat by covering their dog in stuff that either makes it hard for the other dog to latch on, or it's stuff that makes the other dog sick/drugged and can't fight properly?
"Performance enhancing Snausages" would have been a much cooler answer.

I'm watching Quentin Tarantino on Charlie Rose. What a self-serious asshole.

That said, I still really want to see Inglorious Basterds...

ok, a couple of gamer friends tell me every now and then that I "should really watch G4, particularly Attack of the Show."

...

I've watched Attack of the Show. I have every confidence that I could pick any four PEELers at random, and they could produce a show as good as Attack of the Show. Obviously could do even better if I didn't pick at random.

Don't get me wrong, it can be worth watching for the reviews and interviews sometimes, but half of the show amounts to them making meme-references and showing youtube videos of "epic fails." If that's what I want to watch, why the hell would I turn on the tv instead of the computer?

Same goes to Tosh 2.0 and every other web clip show on television. Get a real job, assholes! You have barely enough original content for a mediocre blog, and all the sets and stages and directors in the world aren't going to change that basic fact.

What... what a wonderful idea!

We could have Ralph do 'The Snart Factor', as a massively over-the-top spoof of 'The O'Reilly Factor'. I could do celebrity interviews. And... you could be the band leader.

Books/BC: Both incorrect!
Reservoir Dogs
Inglourious Basterds
Pulp Fiction
blah blah blah


Gopher: G4 went off the deep end a few years back. Nothing on there's worth watching anymore, except for when they do Movies That Don't Suck, but that has nothing to do with video games.


Books: I miss that show too! That show was ballin'.


Coldy: And I could be the producer that stands on the side and gets those one-off shots when I start laughing! Everybody wins!

G4 went off the deep end a few years back.

Yeah, right around the time that it became G4.  Tech TV  used to be a fairly decent channel, but since it became G4 it's like they're trying to be Spike TV for computer geeks or something.

They were also showing reruns of Arrested Development until a couple of weeks ago, but yeah, the only original programming worth watching anymore is X-Play, which not surprisingly is the only Tech TV show left on G4.

Just watched the first 20 minutes of one of Scifi syfy channel's (I hate that name. Hate. I'm using the word Hate here) god-awful flicks. In the first 5 minutes, Dr. Beckett was eaten by the Loch Ness Monster's cousin, the Lake Superior Monster. It walked around with the guy's legs dangling from his mouth for several minutes, then head-butted another guy. Yes - the 100-foot-long dinosaur headbutted a guy. A bit later General Hammond makes an appearance, and after that, Rya'c shows up.

In light of this, I've become convinced that the execs at syfy have stolen an idea from Futurama - I think they're generating their ideas with dice. Presumably they have one die containing a different animal on each face - insects, bears, dinosaurs, spiders, fish, gnats, penguins, etc - and on another, names of their other shows - stargate, eureka, warehouse 51, etc. Roll the monster die, they have the premise; then roll the series die and cast as many actors from that series as possible.

No, but heard about it. Did he get it right?

EDIT: Link Wow, he did... Hmm

EDIT2: So later today/tonight/tomorrow he's revealing how he did it. I'm thinking the fact that the second camera was only cut to when he said "There are two cameras" and wasn't cut to during anything else will have something to do with it and will show us some sneaky camera tricks.

I downloaded the entire first season of that a long time ago, and I've only watched the first 2 episodes so far. It didn't grab me.

SoiFoi really does have some shameful movies.  The movie Raptor Island looked like the CGI was done on a PlayStation.  On the other hand, Lorenzo Lamas would later go on to star in Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus.

I completely forgot about that show..I think they stopped showing it all together here. I guess I could go buy the dvds or fondle the internet for it.

Well if you're at season 3 it's no longer Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, it's just Two Guys and a Girl. Get it right tongue
That show should have been more popular. I demand a recount.

CSI season 10 sweet! Also there's an interactive CSI show here in Dublin, must go to it:
"Looks like this party's over *puts on shades* YEAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!"
"Sir I'm going to have to ask you to leave if you say that after everything I say..."
*takes off shades, puts on shades* "....YEAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!"

And I watched the pilot of Bored to Death, it was pretty good, not great.

New SNL season started last night. Thoughts:
Many people think Kenan's not funny. I disagree. It's that some of the material isn't well used. The Grady Wilson sketch was the funniest non-political thing on this week's show (other than the fake commercial). I really couldn't stop laughing. This was the one sketch that I thought Megan Fox was funny during.

Speaking of Kenan, Jean K. Jean should be expanded on. Back on All That, Kenan did a similar character named Pierre Escargot and did a phoney French accent for that. If they expanded the French jokes a little more, gave him the accent, maybe gave him a sketch separate from Weekend Update, it could be good.

I think the writers are focusing too much on Kristin Wiig (who I don't find funny) and stupid stereotypical humor (like any joke that had to do with Megan Fox during this episode, especially the monologue) and not enough on the likes of Fred Armison, Bill Hader, and Will Forte (my personal favorites in the current cast). For example, Judy Grimes needs to end. It's just like all the other unfunny characters that Wiig does. And I barely saw Hader or Sudekis during this entire episode!

And the biker sketch? Seriously? There were zero jokes in that, it was just an excuse to put "frickin", "friggin", or "freakin" into a sketch as many times as possible and hope the actors don't say the f-bomb (oh wait.......).

They need to find new big talent, possibly even go the route of Season 10 (the Billy Crystal, Martin Short, and Spinal Tap year) and bring in established comedians. Lacking Darrell Hammond will really hurt them.

I thought I'd see a different side of Megan Fox, but that surely wasn't the case whatsoever. Worst guest I've ever seen.

I was watching this show on the History Channel about dogfights (it's either called Aerial Tactical Combat Theater or Dogfights, I don't recall) and there was a story about Jefferson DeBlanc fighting off a bunch of Nakajima Ki-43 "Oscar" over Guadalcanal.  At one point the narrator refers to one of the enemy planes as a "Zero", the preeminent Japanese fighter of WWII.  I say to the screen, "It's an Oscar...dot com!"

I do that sort of thing all the time.
Like the other week on some crappy movie, characters identified an aircraft as a 'MiG' when it was clearly a Sukhoi Su-27. I screamed and thrashed and wept for hours.

Just started watching How I Met Your Mother. Haven't really been a live studio audience sitcom person for a while, probably since Friends/Frasier. But this is kinda funny. NPH is awesome. Whatsits Hannigan is a bit bleh at times, but whatever, i like it. Also, Bob Saggat (sp?) Narrating! smile
