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

Dom Deluise dead at 75

Dom DeluiseThere was a sitcom on for a short time in the 70s titled Lotsa Luck. It starred Dom Deluise as a single guy who lived with his overbearing mother. I remember it being the funniest thing in the world, but I was around 8 or 9 years old at the time so if I were to see it today I'm sure I'd realize that I was wrong. But I do know that I went around saying "lotsa luck!" to people for several months after the show premiered.

Deluise died last night in Los Angeles. He was 75.

Movies on TV: Week of Sept. 28-Oct. 4

Hayley Mills in 'The Parent Trap'Get together with your family to watch the original version of 'The Parent Trap.'

Kids today may be more familiar with the Lindsay Lohan remake, but this 1961 version has even more laughs and heart. A young Hayley Mills plays twins Susan and Sharon with such an effortless charm that kids will never guess a split screen was used. Kids will also love the twists and turns to the story, which has two long lost twins switching places to reunite their parents.

And with screen legend Maureen O'Hara as the mother, parents can join in on the fun, too. The mere site of Mills will have them switching places with their kids and reliving the Disney magic all over again.

Spaceballs: The Animated Series promo available online

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 15th 2008 12:03PM
SpaceballsIt was reported way back in 2006 that Spaceballs was being made into an animated series. Well, the wait is over. The promo is available online (It's definitely NSFW. It's also in Quicktime format and not embedded in a Flash application like you usually see nowadays). Further details of the show can be found on the official G4 site (Please note the series has already been shown on Canada's Super Channel).

I have a sick mind that laughs at things aimed at the lowest common denominator, so I found the promo to be funny. The animated Princess Vespa is certainly more, uh, accented than Daphne Zuniga was in the original movie (talk about Major Boobage).

I'm ecstatic that Mel Brooks himself is providing the voices of his characters from the movie in the animated version. This has been in development for a long time. I'm a tremendous fan of the original movie (and of Brooks' work in general) so I can only hope and pray that this doesn't suck on the level of the animated Clone Wars.

G4 to run animated Spaceballs series

by Brett Love, posted Sep 21st 2006 11:04AM
SpaceballsIf you were worried that G4 was in the process of turning into yet another obscure cable channel that just shows reruns of old TV shows, I'm right there with you. Apparently we shouldn't be so quick to write them off. In a partnership with MGM, Berliner Film Companie GmbH, and Brooksfilms Ltd. the one time video game network is set to bring the animated Spaceballs series to viewers.

Mel Brooks co-wrote the pilot for the new show with Thomas Meehan. The pair also worked together on the original Spaceballs, To Be Or Not To Be, and the musical version of The Producers.

The pilot will be similar to the movie with Dark Helmet kidnapping Princess Vespa and King Roland hiring Lone Starr and Barf to rescue her. Berliner is already at work producing the initial run of 13 episodes. They are set to begin airing on G4 in the fall of 2007.
