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

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 2, season 2

game-of-thrones-logoNow 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

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 1, season 2

game-of-thrones-logoSeason 2 of  Game of Thrones starts with more of the same:  King Joffrey is a dick.  I think we already knew that, but then, this scene isn’t about him.  And so my journey into character fatigue begins… Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 10, season 1

game-of-thrones-logoHey, where’s the finale, season 1 of Game of Thrones? I demand action! I demand excitement! I demand… seriously? Boobs? That’s GoT’s answer to EVERYTHING! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 9, season 1

game-of-thrones-logoWell, we’ve finally come to it – the 9th episode of season 1 and finally, Game of Thrones has let the foreshadowing pay off. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 8, season 1

game-of-thrones-logoEpisode 8 is a kinda in between episode – it just sorta sets up what’s going to happen in episodes 9 and presumably, 10. It’s not that nothing happens in this episode of Game of Thrones, but certainly, not a lot happens.   Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 7, season 1

game-of-thrones-logoI’m starting to think my Episode 6 post travelled backwards through time as Episode 7 really put a push on the overall arc of season 1 in the way I wanted. And Queen Lannister Blond Lady invoked the title! She said Game of Thrones! SQUEAL! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 6, season 1 (tv review)

game-of-thrones-logoEpisode 6 of Game of Thrones is what they call a “false sense of security” episode. This is the part where it seems like things are going well again for the characters you’re supposed to care about… right before things get really bad. Read the rest of this entry

Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue (It Came From YouTube)

"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
