Vodpod Update

20 02 2007

I added a few videos to my vodpod on the right there, because I was semi-bored of the other ones. There is a new promotion from NBC for My Name is Earl, and it’s quite clever. Joy has decided to auction some of her possessions to geeks on the Internet, and they are genuine Ebay auctions. I would find the link but if I open another tab my mac will explode.

The next clip is a montage from episode 11 of 30 Rock, and demonstrates how funny this show can be. Watch near the end when Liz asks what level of cousin they would have to be to make it ok. Her answer is hilarious.

Finally, I put in a video from Arrested Development. This may be the only joke about swinging, shagging and coercing single women into having sex that my mother has ever laughed at. and you can’t get a better endorsement than that.

I also decided to show you all how deftly a joke can be constructed, and how much writing you can pack into 2.53 secs. The volume of jokes in this sketch if you have the patience is astounding. “getting her all glittered up for Easter” is a cracker, but the punchline at the end of the clip, it’s worth the build up that I just gave it. Watch the video after the jump..

I’ll tell you how I did! I managed to watch all the TV that I said I would, and maybe more. Whats more (and this is the most important part), I enjoyed some of it, instead of turning into a zombie. Sometimes when I commit a day to catching up on my favourite programs, I end up cruising through them without paying attention, especially if its a sunday and I have laundry and other interesting and exciting things to do.

Too much too young?

15 11 2006

I was planning to write something about the TV I’ve been watching the last week, but its that “November Sweeps” time of year, when there are new episodes of everything, and its all getting a bit much. Shows are blending into each other and I’m not laughing any more, or feeling anything much.
