Who Does 'Time Warp' Better: Drew Carey or the Cast of 'Glee?'

by Rich Keller, posted Oct 22nd 2010 4:30PM
Before the 'Glee' cast did the 'Time Warp,' Drew Carey and his friends took a stab at the dance number.Earlier this week, 'Glee' fans were happy to watch a "leaked" video featuring the full rendition of 'Time Warp' that the cast will perform on Tuesday's episode saluting 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show.'

Some may think this is the first time the classic rock number has been performed by a television show cast outside of the original 1975 film ... and they would be wrong.

In fact, while many of the 'Glee' stars were still in grade school, Drew Carey was doing the 'Time Warp' on his own show -- complete with elaborate costumes and choreographed dance routines.

New TV on DVD releases this week

GleeHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

So this week we have Glee, which is releasing Volume 1 of their first season before the first season is even over. Most shows don't do this, but FOX feels they can capitalize on the popularity of the show and the popularity of the soundtrack. FlashForward is doing the same thing before the rest of their season launches in January, though I don't think that they will have the same success as Glee.

And to answer your question, no, I'm not sure what Emily of New Moon is either. Here's the IMDb page for it. It has nothing to do with Twilight.

  • Emily of New Moon - Season 2
  • Glee - Season 1, Vol. 1
  • Spaceballs - Totally Warped-Up Adventures
  • Time Warp - Season 2
  • The United States of Tara - Season 1
  • The Waltons - Season 1 and 2 set
  • Whale Wars - Season 2

ReaperHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I sometimes enjoy watching Judge Judy, but it's one of those shows that I can't possibly imagine owning the DVDs. Once is enough for me. But if you're really into the show, there's a 2-Pack set being released this week.

But I have to get the Get Smart DVDs at some point. That's the only show being released that I have any interest in.

  • The Cleaner - Season 1
  • Corner Gas - Season 6
  • Danny Phantom - Season 3
  • Father Knows Best - Season 3
  • Get Smart - Season 3

And now, video of Penn Jillette juggling broken bottles

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 5th 2009 2:26PM
I can juggle a little bit, and one thing I can do it juggle a loaf of bread, a can of soda, and a piece of candy. It took a while to get used to the difference weights and sizes, but it was easy compared to this. It's Penn Jillette, juggling broken bottles, a preview of a new "Las Vegas" episode of TLC's Time Warp that will air on June 17. I guess it's one of those things where you have to think that you're still juggling bottles that aren't broken or you'll lose your concentration.

Can't embed that video, but here's Penn doing the same thing in London a while back.

MTV plans remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 15th 2008 12:01PM
Tim Curry Rocky HorrorGenerally speaking, I'm not an anti-remake person. There are times when a remake is perfectly acceptable and oftentimes can improve upon the best of the original, like Battlestar Galactica, for instance. However -- you knew that was coming, didn't you? -- this remake just sounds like a disaster in the making. MTV is going to turn The Rocky Horror Picture Show into a TV movie. They will take the 1975 cult classic sci-fi, horror musical spoof and give it a 2008 spin.

Oh, please! You cannot strike lightning twice. Rocky Horror was a phenomenon. It was a cult classic because the people who found and supported the movie in all those midnight movie showings felt like they were part of a "with it" crowd. It was like we had all found a diamond in the rough, a film that Hollywood just didn't get. How can MTV possibly think they'll recapture that zeitgeist in a TV movie?
