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
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.)
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

Hopefully, after a few more episodes, everything will become clear. Or clearer. Read the rest of this entry
"This one’s straight off my DIEtunes playlist!"
Holy hell. (Literally.) Why does this exist? This new live stage show, Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue, debuted on February 8 of 2014, so it’s not for Halloween, and a second Beetlejuice movie is still a pipe dream, so.. what is the deal here? What were they thinking?!? Read the rest of this entry
