SHOW OF THE MO: Chuck

It would be fair to say that right now, TV is pretty great. Shows such as Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones will undoubtedly be revered long after they stop airing. Yet no matter how great these shows can be, there’s no denying that they take themselves rather seriously. Even comedies such as The Think of It and Louie are very serious comedies. You have to be in a certain mood to watch them. You certainly don’t feel like watching them when you’re feeling a bit run down, and your brain can barely get its head around the notion of washing your own balls, let alone sitting through a 10 minute diatribe from Louis C.K. about how he doesn’t love his own mother. That’s when a show like Chuck comes in.

What We’re Watching: June Update

Word is that next series is going to be the last, and if this series was anything to go by 30 Rock going to go out strong. With episodes such as the genius “Leap Day” (directed by Steve Buscemi), this show is still as funny as it ever was.

Series 3 of the Square Eyed favourite featured some of it’s best episodes yet, the alternative reality tackling “Remedial Chaos Theory”, the Law & Order inspired “Basic Lupine Urology” and the difficult-to-explain “Curriculum Unavailable”. Hopefully this quality will continue next series, despite the departure of creator Dan Harmon. read more »

News

I can’t remeber if I knew about this or not, either way it now has my attention

The pretty lady above is Charity Wakefield in costume for her role as Marylin Munster, in the up coming Munsters reboot, Mockingbird Lane. Like I suggest in the title, I can’t remember whether or not I knew that The Munsters was being remade. What I certainly don’t remember is that Mockingbird Lane’s showrunner is Bryan Fuller, creator of the rather wonderful Pushing Daisies. Not only that but the incredibly awesome Portia De Rossi (Arrested Development, Better off Ted) is rumoured to be playing Lily Munster. FURTHERMORE, word is on the street that Usual Suspects director Brian Singer is to be directing the pilot. So yeah well down NBC, you’ve gotten my attention.

Let’s just hope these rumours are true, if not the guys over at Shock Till You Drop are to blame for getting our hopes up.

Theme Tune Tuesdays: Vol. 9

With news that the Teen Titans will be returning to the silver screen, in the form of Teen Titans Go! it only seemed appropriate to feature the rather catchy little number that accompanied their previous show.
