This 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
Now that Season 2 of Game of Thrones is in full swing and the characters continue to multiply, it’s become more of a “I at least know who these people are, so I’ll care about them” sort of thing rather than trying to sort this all out in my head. 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
The Novice GoT Watcher returns! It’s episode 3 of season 1 of Game of Thrones and the boobs are back! They’re not important to the story, but they’re back, baby! BOOBS! Read the rest of this entry
I know, I’m late to the party, but I’ve decided I should check out Game of Thrones. The first episode got my wheels turning, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on the phenomenon via my outsider’s perspective.
I live on earth, so I’m aware that Game of Thrones is a fantasy series on HBO revolving around a preindustrial society and some sort of game… of thrones. Oh, and I know Sean Bean dies at some point, but that’s no surprise. If you’re unfamiliar with Sean Bean’s career, SPOILER ALERT: he always dies in nearly every role he plays.
So yeah, not exactly a spoiler for me as I’m well aware that people cast Sean Bean in stuff because he’s awesome at dying. Seriously, it’s not easy to die – I had to die on stage one time and, not being much of an actor, I spent the three months leading up to the show figuring out how to do it, and I really only nailed it once.
Anyway, if I could sum up the one hour first episode in a single word, it would probably be

I haven’t done one of these Attention Must Be Paid posts in a zillion years and for whatever reason, I suddenly had the desire to tackle a web series that isn’t in production anymore and hasn’t been for several years. So, without further ado, I give you Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager!

Way back in 2012, we made a Deadpool fan film and we’re back at it again because… my boy still has that Deadpool costume. I understand that the below image might not be the most helpful teaser ever, so I’ll go on to say that this short will also feature Captain America and will be somewhere in between Blossom and The Odd Couple. If you don’t see the synergy between those two shows, then – wait, I don’t see the synergy between Blossom and The Odd Couple, so this video is going to be a bit on the odd side. But then, that’s kinda what we do around here anyway.
We’re about halfway done with filming and I’ve sorta started the editing, so this shouldn’t take too long, but I don’t want to give a debut date and be wrong, so let’s just say ‘coming soon’ and leave it at that.
I like YouTube – sometimes it giveth, sometimes it taketh away. I’d say today’s entry of It Came From YouTube is a good example of both.
This is exactly the sort of stuff that makes YouTube great – well produced niche content that’s a ton of fun. YouTuber FamilyJules7X clearly has the skills, passion and chops to crank out metal inspired covers from such classic video games as Tetris, Zelda, Super Mario Brothers and several others. This is my jam jar.
And then there’s this.
Downton Abbey was a big deal in my house. Was. The death of Matthew put an end to all of the excitement and turned ‘must see TV’ into ‘we’re never watching that show again.’ In a desperate attempt to save Dr. Girlfriend’s favorite show, I started writing something that I hoped I could convince the folks over at Carnival Films and Masterpiece to put into production for Season 4, but it was not to be. Still, I did write the thing up, so I thought I’d share with you my opening scene for the first episode of Season 4 that would begin the process of undoing the horrors of Season 3 and the Christmas special.

I’m a long time fan of Cracked.com. Series such as After Hours, Obsessive Pop Culture Disorder and Today’s Topic are part of my staple internet shows, so I’m always curious to check out their latest efforts. However, their two previous (and most elaborate) offerings, Rom.Com and their Star Wars parody (Adventures in Jedi School) didn’t do anything for me at all – to say I was disappointed is a bit of an understatement. The trailer for their newest series, Welcome Back, Potter, got my attention right away, so I checked it out to see if this would be a turning point or the solidification of a trend that things at Cracked had changed forever.
