Animation news: Aqua Teen, Simpsons and Spider-Man - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 26th 2007 2:03PM

spider manHey, everybody, here's a few tasty tidbits from the world of animation for you. Please chew carefully:

A fourth trailer for The Simpsons movie was released not too long ago. Most of you have probably seen it already, but if not, I've placed it at the end of this post. The brief shot of Lisa fainting over the cute boy gets me every time. The animation in that sequence is unlike anything they do on the TV series, which leads me to believe this movie is going to kick twelve essential kinds of ass.

South Park: Lice Capades

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 24th 2007 10:01AM

cartman(S11E03) Sorry this review is a few days late, Becky, but I've been sick.

Overall, I thought this was a good episode, though it didn't floor me with hilarity the way some episodes do. Perhaps that was in large part to not quite understanding what the point of the episode was. Was it meant to mock those who see the Earth as a conscience entity that can actually choose to get rid of us the way the students of South Park get rid of lice? Or was the whole episode just a philosophical experiment and we're left to make up our own minds? Or maybe it was all just a really elaborate set up so they could do a gag about Angelina Jolie having crabs at the end of the episode.

Demetri Martin explains the Viacom/Google/YouTube controversy - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 23rd 2007 7:01PM

Demetri MartinThe Boston Phoenix makes an interesting suggestion on one of their blogs: maybe NBC should give the Late Night slot to Demetri Martin in 2009 when Conan O'Brien takes over for Jay Leno. Hmmm...

In this Daily Show clip, Martin explains the whole copyright controversy involving Viacom, Google, and YouTube. It's a great clip, with Martin asking at one point if viewers are watching him right now on YouTube (yes, it's a YouTube clip). He even freezes his body and says "buffering." Funny stuff. Both videos after the jump (YouTube version and Comedy Central's, just in case...)

How to behave on a game show

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 23rd 2007 3:04PM

Beat the GeeksAs you may or may not know, I have been on many game shows. I won $40,000 on Greed. I won a car, seven televisions and a buttload of other stuff on TV Land's Ultimate Fan Search. I won over a grand on To Tell The Truth and of course, I was on every episode of Beat the Geeks. Suffice it to say, I have plenty of experience with this game we call show. Recently Joel Keller wrote a piece chock full of information on where to apply to be on a gameshow, and while this information is certainly helpful, you should know that it's only the beginning. There are a multitude of Do's and Dont's to remember.

Let's start with the Do's...

Jon Stewart"Welcome Back, Hotter": Al Gore has become a strange Hollywood sweetheart, so he's bound to be met with jealous cries and annoying "yes or no" questions in DC. The "flaming baby" graphic was awesome. I want that on a t-shirt.

"Showdown At Justice: Hereunder referred to as the 'Nonvoluntary Lawyer Disemployment Program' vis a vis certain events on or around 7 December 2006 (C.F. Appendix B, Codicil IX, Paragraph 7)": Tony Snow is being a big baby over a lot of things. Actually, Jon seems genuinely fed up with him.

Jon Stewart"Eight Men Out": More news about the attorney dismissals. Senior Washington Correspondent John Oliver stopped by to talk about the current situation. I promise I will work "Bullshit... or bullfact?" into a normal conversation by next Wednesday.

Ah, of course they had to do a segment about the previous night's interview with John Bolton. He said some pretty interesting things while sitting next to Jon, including a little disagreement about Jon's Lincoln facts. Jon rang up one of his former guests, Lincoln Expert Doris Kearns Goodwin, to bitch her out for giving him false information. It was quite funny, especially with that old-fashioned phone.

Jon Stewart"The Unforgettable Fired": The e-mails with details about attorney dismissals are absolutely ridiculous. I wouldn't be surprised if e-mails like the fake graphic really exist in some Capitol Hill Inbox. Senior Political Analyst Rob Riggle stopped by to elaborate on the term "loyal Bushies". The Karl Rove lemur kind of freaked me out on a Spongemonkey level, but not as much as the mention of Barbara Bush's vagina. Eww.

John McCain and his Straight Talk Express are back! His "lost the war" Freudian slip was beautiful, was it not? Maybe his bus really does enforce truth... Perhaps people should swear on the Straight Talk Express in court.

New York Times: Iraq war's influence seen in many TV shows

by Meredith O'Brien, posted Mar 20th 2007 5:25PM
Jack Bauer on 24 With the TV news networks dedicating major portions of their broadcasts this week to the fourth anniversary of the beginning of the war in Iraq, a New York Times TV critic says that the war, as well as issues related to terrorism and torture, have become major themes on American television, ranging from dramas like 24, to comedies like Saturday Night Live.

"Television shows process news events much faster than ever before but not much more directly than they did at the time of Hogan's Heroes, M*A*S*H or China Beach," critic Alessandra Stanley wrote, noting that a failed FX program, Over There about soldiers in Iraq "turned a war into entertainment as it was still being fought."

Jon StewartModel UN students are really excited audience members, apparently. Plus, they really like jokes about celebrity birthdays and the Iraq War's fourth anniversary. Four years already? Wow. It feels like only yesterday that I lost all faith in humanity.

"Blondie": Henry Waxman is Batboy with a dying caterpillar for a moustache. As for Valerie Plame, she's very compelling... And by "compelling", I mean "f**kable"... And by "f**kable", I mean "a little too pretty to talk to Congressmen".
