The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story (tv movie review)

As a kid, I was a big fan of Saved by the Bell. It’s one of those things I could never verbalize – I just liked that show. It never made me laugh, cry or… anything, really, but I watched the hell out of that show. I guess I just identified with the characters… also, me and my buddy spent a lot of time leering at Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, but… you know, fifth grade. What can I tell ya? Hence, Dr. Girlfriend and I watched Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story for nostalgia’s sake. Read the rest of this entry

Watching The Simpsons, marathon: "Lemon of Troy" and "The Springfield Connection"

I haven’t had much time for The Simpsons, marathon, but I did catch "Lemon of Troy" and "The Springfield Connection," both from Season 6. I’ve seen both of these episodes many times before yet somehow, I caught a few things I’d never noticed before. Read the rest of this entry

16 Classic Episodes from The Simpsons, season 6 (and 9 memorable ones!)

The 6th season of The Simpsons is one I remember vividly. Even if I don’t necessarily love each and every episode, I certainly can recall the plots, some jokes and various quotes without much effort. Come with me and discover not only who holds back the electric car, but also, who makes Steve Guttenberg a star. Read the rest of this entry

“Bart! Get out of the Spirit of St. Louis!”

We did our best to recreate this classic moment at the National Air and Space Museum from The Simpsons episode “Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington.” (That’s from season 2 if you’re keeping score at home.)

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 7, season 2

Some dude’s @ss crack? And sort of in service to the plot? The nudity on Game of Thrones has taken a back seat to the plot, and it’s great!

I think my overall impression of season 1 was that it was fine… you know, just – fine. When season 2 started up, I was annoyed to find I was being served up a much more complicated version of season 1… but then, shiz got real. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 6, season 2

Replace “Hess Truck” with “boobs” and you’re good to go.

Episode 6 of Season 2 brings you the most story centric boobs in an episode of Game of Thrones that I can recall. And they’re not gratuitous! It’s truly incredible! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 5, season 2

No boobs? There’s no boobs in Game of Thrones, episode 5, season 2? Surely it cannot be so? But… correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this episode was boob free! Wonders will never cease! This is probably the best episode so far! Read the rest of this entry

14 Classic Episodes from The Simpsons, season 5 (and 8 memorable ones!)

“Baby on board, something something, Burt Ward!”

I think it might be fair to say that the fifth season of The Simpsons is one of my favorites… Given that I’ve given 14 episodes “classic” status and 8 are at least “memorable” – meaning that none of them terrible and therefore forgettable. If you like coincidences and numbers, you may enjoy noting that my season 5 numbers are an exact reverse of my season 4 numbers in terms of “classic” and “memorable” Simpsons episodes. Anyway, here’s the list: Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 4, season 2

game-of-thrones-logoI hope no one finds this offensive, but my theory that Game of Thrones is written, directed and produced by the world’s smartest twelve year old boys has been confirmed by this episode. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 3, season 2

game-of-thrones-logoThis beginning/midish point of season 2 of Game of Thrones is kinda plodding. The little that is going on isn’t especially interesting and it’s as though every single scene is developing a different thread of the overall plot. I think I’d rather they devote each episodes to two plot threads instead of five, but that’s life. Read the rest of this entry
