Group sex? Virgin sacrifices? Check out a clip from the Caprica pilot - VIDEO

by Mike Moody, posted Jan 5th 2009 3:37PM
caprica scifiA new clip from the Caprica pilot hit the web today. The clip features Eric Stoltz's Daniel Graystone touring a "Cyber Club," where people go to dance, drink, and offer the occasional virgin sacrifice to the goddess of the underworld. There's also a fight club, group sex rooms, and fantasy killing rituals. Hmm, maybe humanity did deserve to get nuked after all.

SciFi's upcoming Battlestar Galactica prequel is slated to hit the air with a two-hour movie in 2010. Judging by this clip, Ron Moore and crew are ready to go to some very dark places with this series, but only time will tell if BSG fans are ready to follow them.

Slinky Muppets dance for Ed - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 30th 2007 2:04PM

muppetsBelow I've placed a Muppet sketch from the Ed Sullivan Show, though don't expect to see any familiar faces like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie or Gonzo.

The bit is actually quite simple: a slinky-like Muppet dances a little jig while his smaller friend tries to join in. What I love about this bit is that it demonstrates how talented the Muppet puppeteers are. The choreography and movements of the two puppets is very subtle, and no movement is superfluous. Watch how the little Muppet examines the "feet" of the bigger Muppet. It's no more than a slight twist of the puppet's "head," but it conveys volumes.

Clips from the Sarah Connor Chornicles - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted May 21st 2007 2:22PM

sarah connor chroniclesA few short clips form FOX's upcoming Sarah Connor Chronicles have popped up on YouTube. I've placed them below.

I'm a casual fan of the Terminator movies, but I have to admit that this new series looks really, really cool. The series stars Lena Headey in the titular role; Thomas Dekker as her son, John; and Richard T. Jones and Summer Glau.

The new series takes place after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Sarah is forced to protect her son from enemies from the future who want to make sure he doesn't succeed in ultimately destroying the machines who themselves are bent on destroying mankind. Ooh, that's heavy, but it's also the kind of ultra-violent escapism that fan boys and fan girls alike love to see. One of the things that set the Terminator movies apart from other big shoot-em ups is that it had that element of real (not forced) human drama, and I think, based on these clips, this new series will have the same.

The new series will air Sundays at 9:00 p.m. starting spring of 2008. Clips after the jump.

Animation news: Robot Chicken, Drinky Crow and Underdog - VIDEO

UnderdogHere's some animation news from the past week:

We've been telling you about the Robot Chicken Star Wars special for some time now. If you're a fan, you've probably already seen the trailer, but if not, here it is.

Also, I found another Drinky Crow clip. It's at the end of this post. Based on the snippets I've seen of this series so far, I think they've really captured the weird, violent humor of Tony Millionaire's strip.

Hear a snippet from Joe Rogan's new comedy album

joe roganThis link is NOT SAFE FOR WORK. Notice I didn't use the standard internet abbreviation "NSFW," because I didn't want some benighted person in an office thinking, "'Not Suitable For Winger?' That has nothing to do with me, I was never in that band, and I don't even like the song 'Seventeen.' Everything about that acronym tells me to click that link."

I actually thought Rosie had a degree in physics - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 4th 2007 7:24PM

WTCLike many of you, I always assumed that Rosie O'Donnell had a masters in physics. I mean, why else would she be spouting off on national television that the WTC 7 was probably destroyed by a controlled detonation?

I actually make it a point to refer to Rosie's wisdom on every question I have in life. Right now I have a cold cheese sandwich sitting in my kitchen, but I'm not going to grill it until I find out from Rosie for certain that heat will melt cheese. She seems to have an understanding of these things my simple mind can't quite grasp.

At any rate, Popular Mechanics, just as it had done previously, explains to Rosie, and to everyone else, why the towers fell the way they did.

Meet the Press for Idiots - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 25th 2007 2:00PM

tim russertOut of all the late night hosts, Conan O'Brien is far and away my favorite. I'm not quite old enough to have enjoyed Letterman and his hipper days at NBC, and Leno's populism doesn't quite do it for me, but Conan came along during my high school and college days, and the humor of Late Night is perfect for a weird guy like me riding in the caboose of the Generation X train.

I'll admit Conan isn't always perfect, and I wish sometimes he'd get rid of that whole "If They Mated" segment, which I never found all that funny, but he still comes up with some great material, such as the clip I've placed below. Actually, I only wanted to show you the first part of the clip, a preview of a series called Meet the Press for Idiots, but the following segment featuring God trying to bond with Jesus is pretty funny, too.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie: a sneak peek

by Adam Finley, posted Nov 9th 2006 6:25PM
aqua teen hunger forceAfter watching the first minute of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie and jumping around my apartment clapping, squealing and giggling like a little girl in anticipation of the movie's theatrical release sometime next year, I figured I should let those of you who haven't discovered it yet know that AdultSwim.com has the clip, which you can watch and laugh at here. Judging from this minuscule slice of the whole picture pie, it looks as if they're making the show with the fans in mind, and screw anyone who comes into the theater who has never seen the series before. I can't imagine they'd do the movie any other way, since a show about anthropomorphic fast food that interacts with mystical and often evil forces from time and space is really the kind of oddity that people find on their own. I don't predict huge returns for this film, but if it doesn't become an instant cult hit, I'll eat my hat. The hat I made of licorice.

Bill and Dave battle again - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 29th 2006 3:01PM

bill and daveIf you're like me and don't tune into watch David Letterman much anymore, I've placed the video of Bill O'Reilly's latest appearance on The Late Show after the jump. I have no interest in taking sides in this particular debate, but I think what is clear is that as angry or annoyed as Dave seems, he loves to have someone on like O'Reilly who he can argue with rather than just lob softballs at some starlet who is there to promote her next movie. Dave's been doing this for far too long and he lives for these moments. O'Reilly isn't one to back down from a challenge, either, and despite their disagreements, the two of them are actually a perfect match. Unfortunately, the clip gets cut off at the end, and I couldn't find another one on YouTube. If anyone knows where a full clip can be found, let me know and I'll replace this one.

Full clip here. Thanks, Kristie.

South Park teams with World of Warcraft (plus clips)

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 3rd 2006 3:03PM

south parkSouth Park returns tomorrow evening to finish off its tenth season with an episode titled "Make Love, Not Warcraft." South Park Studios has a couple funny, albeit rather short clips to whet your pallet, which can be seen here and here (both link to a QuickTime movie). Apparently the Warcraft craze takes over South Park big time, which isn't much of a surprise considering the residents' habit of overreacting to everything. Also, Blizzard Entertainment, the creators of World of Warcraft, helped out with the episode. Oh yeah, and I'll be picking up where I left off, giving my thoughts and reflections on the episodes, too. Ah, South Park, how I've missed your hilarity and scathing indictment of our misguided culture. If you had a torso I would hug you. If you had an ass I would cop a feel. That's how much I love you, computer-animated series for mature audiences.

He wears the clothes of the dead

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 1st 2006 4:03PM
steven banksOne of my favorite forgotten television specials was Steven Banks: Home Entertainment Center, which aired on Showtime in the late 80s. The special took place in Banks' apartment as he continuously distracts himself with toys, cookies and musical instruments rather than writing a report for his boss. Banks is now a writer for SpongeBob SquarePants and sometimes performs as Billy the Mime. What I didn't know until recently is that Banks also had a short-lived series on PBS titled The Steven Banks Show. How that managed to slip by me, I'll never know, but I did find a great clip from the show featuring Penn and Teller performing a song with Banks called "Clothes of the Dead," a rockin' tribute to thrift stores. Check it out after the jump and thrill at the unconventional keyboard stylings of Teller. Enjoy:

Uncensored and NSFW Family Guy clip

by Adam Finley, posted Sep 20th 2006 3:33PM

family guyAnd when we say "NSFW," we really mean "NSFW." Family Guy fans undoubtedly remember the episode "Road to Rhode Island" in which Brian and Stewie travel across the country after Stewie misplaces their plane tickets. The B story for that episode involved Lois purchasing a marriage counseling video with a special "men only" section in which the instructor does a strip tease. In this clip found on Google Video, the instructor takes the strip tease a tad further than she did in the original episode. Rumors are abound as to where the clip came from: some claim it was done as a joke played on either Seth Green or Seth MacFarlane, others say it's included as a deleted scene on one of the DVDs. For some reason the only thing I could think about while watching the clip is that I haven't seen Fritz the Cat in a really long time. Weird.

Bob Odenkirk on TV Funhouse - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Sep 6th 2006 7:02PM
tv funhouseI was a big fan of Robert Smigel's TV Funhouse, which lasted for only one season on Comedy Central, though I have to admit I thought some of the animated segments were funny more in theory than in execution. One of my favorite segments from the show featured Bob Odenkirk as the host of a program on the extent of human knowledge and how much we actually know, or don't know. It's typical Odenkirk in that it's incredibly funny and makes you wonder just what part of your brain you need to whack with a hammer in order see the world the way he does. Scott Adsit, a fellow cast member on Mr. Show, makes an appearance as a scientist. More clips from the series and some full episodes can be found here. Enjoy Bobby after the jump:

Brendon Small is Captain Mustache

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 21st 2006 2:03PM
brendon smallBrendon Small, creator of Home Movies and the new Metalocalypse, is also a stand-up comedian. I found a little snippet of him performing a character named Captain Mustache, and I placed it after the jump for your viewing pleasure. This is definitely what they call "alternative comedy." His alter-ego never really tells a single joke, but I almost fell out of my chair laughing, anyway. The only reason I didn't fall out of my chair laughing is because I laughed so hard it actually caused my body to defy the law of gravity, making it impossible for me to fall out of my chair. That's how damn hard I laughed; I actually transcended strict physical laws. Small's humor will tear asunder the very fabric of what we perceive as reality. Anyway, enjoy:

Watch Emmy nominations and vote

by Anna Johns, posted Aug 21st 2006 8:33AM
emmyIf you're like me and you don't watch House, 24, Grey's Anatomy, Sopranos or West Wing, it's kind-of hard to care who wins an Emmy for Best Drama during next Sunday's telecast (on NBC). However, you can do some homework thanks to a nifty little video project over at AOL Television. There are clips from each nominated drama, comedy, and also for nominated actors in each genre. Watch the clips and then vote on which show you think will win.

So far, it looks like viewers are betting on Grey's Anatomy for a statue.
