The Simpsons S19E01 – He Loves to Fly and He D’oh’s

24 09 2007

I don’t know if it’s my lowered expectations, or the fact that I’m still relieved the movie wasn’t terrible, but I just watched the 19th season premiere of The Simpsons and in my opinion it was hilarious. As always, the plot was recycled and amalgamated from ten’s of episodes of the past, but there were enough one-liners, sight gags and reveals to recall the writing of old. There was a also a funny cameo from Lionel Richie that I think will be showing up on the front page of Youtube and Digg over the next view days. A good start to the season, don’t let the quality dip now, you’ve raised my hopes! Watch the post-movie intro after the jump..

I’m watching “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” right now..

28 07 2007

..and I’m wondering why Terminators have such bad aim. Is this how its’ going to be all season? Chase gunfire explosion ad nauseum? Me no likey…


Ooooh, didn’t see that coming.  Still think they need to develop more than a collection of gunfight scenes though.

Pilots at Last!

23 07 2007

Aaaah, its all coming together. The scaffolding around my flat is coming down, which means the TV reception came back! I bought a laptop so I will be able to blog regularly again. And most important of all, pilots have started leaking onto the interweb! I will be watching Chuck and The Sarah Connor Chronicles at some point this week and I will let you know my thoughts on both!! What a result for you all!

Top 10 Simpsons songs… ever!

15 07 2007

Blah blah blah, Simpsons movie coming out soon. Blah blah, reminiscing about the good old days, So without further ado, blah. Actually, before I start I want to give an honourable mention to Homer pouring beer down the sink, singing When I was 17. Its not the kind of big musical number that I was aiming for with this list, but I love it.

At 10, we start off easy with a song that I reckon half the “old skool” Simpsons fans may not have even seen, after giving up the show (or so they say) around Season 8/9/10. I’m not sure I remember the storyline, other than it involving a curfew, and a radio station run behind an advertising hoarding. And maybe some moonshine. No wait, that was a different, better episode. Anywho enjoy “Kids v Adults”, which is the title I’m giving this song.

Derek Tricolli

11 07 2007

I touched on this in my post last week, but this guy has made me laugh hardest this summer. The Loop is a really average sitcom on Fox, but the hope of an appearance by this guy made me sit through all 10 episodes, and I wasn’t disappointed by his 50 second slots.

If you haven’t seen it before, bear in mind the following montage of all his elevator monologues may be too much to take in one go, but when originally aired they were an oasis in a desert of… “not funny”. Poetic, yes? Watch them all after the jump.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles goes to…

14 06 2007

.. Virgin and their new entertainment channel, designed to appease their subscribers at the loss of Sky One. Due to start in the US on Fox in January, it follows John Connor in the time between T2 and T3, as is my understanding. My personal opinion based on the trailer below is that I can’t see how long they can sustain the story, but I have known to be wrong. Like, 0.000001% of the time or something. But again, I applaud what Virgin are doing, although I advise them to steal a terrestrial hit if they want to drag viewers away from existing channels. May I suggest…hmmm, what is there left. Let me get back to you. Check the trailer out for yourself below. Read the rest of this entry »
