Big Ass TV Watching Roundup

Mulholland Drive
unaired pilot that was later the basis for the movie. Naomi Watts breakthrough role as hot blonde chick who shows up for an audition, but then abruptly leaves, b/c she forget her diaphragm. I arrived in the middle, and since I ain’t never seen the movie, I’m not entirely sure my review is accurate.
netflix: N/A
imdb: N/A

Off The Air
various clips from T3H INFERWEBZ that have a common theme. we watched the Dancing episode. some of it was really funny (like the guy who danced with a crane) my friend said this was the worst of the three episodes so far. I will hafta go back and watch the first two.
netflix: 3/5
imdb: 7/10

NTSF:SD:SUV
spin off of Childrens Hospital about a terrorism task force in Dan Diego. Captain Janeway and Rebecca Romijn are in it. never seen it before. the episode we watched was about a Japanese sub that had been lost in the Pacific Ocean since WWII.
netflix: 3/5
imdb: 6/10

The Problem Solverz
Alfe’s mentor, Ralphe, comes for a visit, right as the town is besieged by a glam vampire attack. my best male mate tells me that this show is not as good as I think it is, and not as terrible as hipsterscum thinks it is. Alfe is AWESOME! I also like Horace, b/c he reminds of Tim Heidecker’s character (Tom Peters) from Tom Goes To The Mayor
netflix: 4/5
imdb: 9/10

Alfe

Finn & Jake
everyone in the Candy Kingdom switches genders. this episode really raised the bar for sexual tension between Fionna and the Prince. it turns out Finn & Jake were FREEZING! CAN’T MOVE AT ALL! CRY OUT! THEY’RE TRAPPED UNDER ICE! and forced to listen to the Ice King’s fan fiction.
netflix: 4/5
imdb: 9/10

Fionna

Futurama
season finale featuring three different short stories, each with their own unique animation style. old-timey animation from the 1930s where everyone bounced for side-to-side. 1980s anime where the cast turns into a Voltron-type character, to battle a race of alien lobsters. 8-bit graphics where the storyline was played out within the context of a video game.
netflix: 5/5
imdb: 10/10

Thundercats (2011)
Lion-O puts his Sword of (Deadly) Omens on the line against The Duelist. a man who travels the country whooping other swordsmens asses, and taking their swords. Stephen Root plays, The Drifter. a guy who floats wherever the wind takes him, and he doesn’t really give a fuck about anything. he gets my award for strangest secondary character appearing in an animated primetime action show.
netflix: 5/5
imdb: 10/10

we also watched some teasers for shows returning/premiering this Fall. American Dad where Stan buys a talking hot tub, that was involved in some sexy fun time with it’s previous owner. Allen Gregory. animated show coming to FOX, starring Jonah Hill, as a kindergarten-aged Hollywood bigshot.

I think that’s all of it. tonite we have the season finale of Curb Your Enthusiasm and the season premiere of Squidbillies. CHECK IT OUT!!!
