The Coolest Thing You'll See Today: Beaker Channels Kansas

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 9th 2010 6:00PM
Remember way back when the Muppets did their version of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and how it set the Internet on fire? Well, their newest attempt couldn't set a pile of gasoline soaked soaks ablaze.

This time, Beaker attempts to "meep" his way through the Kansas ballad, "Dust in the Wind," but the Internet doesn't seem too pleased with it, which is like saying that Toyota made a little bit of a "boo-boo" with the manufacturing of their cars.

TV Squad Video: Starship Enterprise orbits Griffith Park

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Nov 18th 2009 2:05PM
If you're like me, and I know I am, you've wondered what it would like if the U.S.S. Enterprise descended on the Hollywood Hills.

Fortunately, Paramount held the big DVD and Blu-ray release party for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movie at the Griffith Park Observatory Monday night, and the Enterprise took up a standard orbit around the famous planetarium landmark.

While the film's creators and cast mingled inside the observatory, a high-definition multimedia system projected video images of Trek visual effects up against the building's walls.

So, for a few moments, the Enterprise (almost to scale) swooped in for a visit before heading away at warp factor one.

Enjoy a glimpse of it below.

SlashControl gives you tons of TV for free

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 11th 2009 12:28PM
SlashControl home pageOur friends at AOL TV have launched a new video site today that they're pretty proud of. The new site, SlashControl, provides thousands of free full-length TV episodes of current and past TV shows, as well as lots of free full-length movies.

Navigation is fairly simple: go to either "Free Movies" or "Free TV Shows" and click on the first letter of the show or movie you want to watch. Shows are also easily searchable and grouped by season. Through AOL's partnerships with Hulu, ABC, CBS, Showtime, and a number of other providers, the list of available shows is fairly comprehensive. For shows that don't have full episodes available, there are plenty of embeddable clips available for viewing.

After taking a quick stroll through the site, the interface looks pretty easy to use and navigate, and it's always good to look for what you want on one site instead of all over the place. So take a look at SlashControl; hopefully, it'll only suck away half your day instead of the whole thing.

Bobby Moynihan: In the Limelight - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 10th 2009 12:02PM
Bobby MoynihanAt one point or another during this latest season of Saturday Night Live, every viewer has wondered, "Who is this new guy, and why does he wear so many giant cat costumes?"

While I can't answer the second part of this question (it will remain one of the great mysteries of the late night universe), I can offer a little more information on SNL's resident new guy and rising star, Bobby Moynihan. Despite appearing as a featured player in only twenty episodes so far, Moynihan is fast becoming one of my favorite cast members on the show, right up there with Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig.

Fellow Moynihan fans, prepare to love him even more!

Monty Python finally does something with this YouTube stuff - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Nov 18th 2008 7:03PM
Monty PythonHey, want to know something super-sad? For most of seventh grade, I came home every day from school and, before doing anything else, watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail from beginning to end. I also spent a great deal of middle school reading everything I could about the troupe, filling my brain with pointless trivia about Sam Peckinpah's "Salad Days" and Spam.

This not only caused me to develop a type of hardcore social awkwardness that was extremely rare outside of the 70s and 80s, but forever instilled in me a deep love for Monty Python. Since the boys are very busy with their individual projects these days, it's a thrill to see any new Python stuff to come around, even when it's in the form of an extra-short YouTube clip and they're never actually shown to be in the same room together.

My goodness, it's like the greatest satire-related September Christmas ever.

TV 101: Five VERY SPECIAL EPISODES that saved society - VIDEOS

by Jay Black, posted Apr 18th 2008 10:58AM
Estrogen? Yeah, I'm pretty sure we both need that.There's no denying it: we're currently living in a utopia. Not a day goes by that I don't thank my lucky stars that I get to live in the greatest country on earth during the greatest time to be alive. I think even the harshest critic of the current world order would agree with me when I say that there's not a single problem anywhere in the world that anyone is dealing with.

But how did we get here? What was the spark that spurred us from barely cognizant man-apes into the enlightened, elegant creatures that we are today? Look no further than that great black monolith sitting in your living room: your TV. Five VERY SPECIAL EPISODES that saved society after the jump...

YouTube killer and video ad sites prepared to launch

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 8th 2007 3:02PM

nbcEarly next year NBC Universal will launch Didja.com, a YouTube-like video site made just for advertisers. The site will feature TV spots both old and new, movie trailers and other brand-related stuff. Advertisers will also include special offers and promotions to coincide with their specific channel.

The idea was concocted by executives at the NBC Universal-owned USA cable network, so expect lots of ads for that particular network when the site launches. Eventually, other NBC Universal properties will show up on the site, as well.

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 6th 2007 4:02PM

jay mohrJay Mohr, comedian and sports fan, will be providing twenty-minute video segments for FoxSports.com this month. The series, called The Alternative With Jay Mohr, will mix remote segments, monologues and comedic sketches. Mohr will also pen a weekly column for the sports site.

Sports fans shouldn't be too surprised to see Mohr in this capacity. The comedian/actor, who currently appears on CBS' Ghost Whisperer, hasn't exactly hidden his love of sports, having appeared as a guest host on Jim Rome's Sirius Satellite Radio program, not to mention frequent appearances on The Best Damn Sports Show Period and NFL Sunday Morning.

Flight of the Conchords: In the Limelight -- VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 27th 2007 4:01PM
Bret and JemaineMy absolute, hands-down favorite new show of this summer is HBO's Flight of the Conchords. The show stars Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement as stranger versions of themselves, musicians from New Zealand trying to make it in big, bag America, with little to no help from their pathetic manager, Murray (the extremely funny Kiwi comic Rhys Darby). But did you know that before the Flight of the Conchords show, there was a Flight of the Conchords band? Well, you probably already knew that, but I wanted to take a moment and marvel at the comedic beauty that is the Bret and Jemaine duo.

Neil Hamburger, TV personality - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 9th 2007 11:04AM

neil hamburgerIf you follow the "alternative comedy" scene, you've probably seen Neil Hamburger before. He's appeared on Tom Green's online talk show hosting "Poolside Chats," and has also popped up on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, not to mention a few episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC and Red Eye on the FoxNews channel.

Hamburger is actual Gregg Turkington, a musician, actor and writer who has released a few "comedy" albums. He resembles a lounge performer who was mugged just prior to getting on stage, and his sets consist of lots of bad jokes peppered with uncontrollable coughing fits. That is, however, the point of his act. He's not so much a bad comedian as he is someone playing a bad comedian, and once you're in on the gag, it's quite entertaining.

Tim and Eric love Shrek - VIDEO

tim eric shrekEvery so often, MySpace will offer users the chance to gussy up their pages with special promotional images and backgrounds. Some, like myself, prefer doing it the old fashioned way and carrying large signs around the neighborhood telling everyone to see the new Transformers movie.

Comedians Tim and Eric (Tom Goes to the Mayor; Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), however, don't care about Transformers, they care about Shrek the Third. That's right, not only have they changed the look of their MySpace page to honor the lovable ogre, they've also created a few videos to let people know the movie is coming out.

Watch clips of ABC's pilots on their website

by Joel Keller, posted May 16th 2007 5:23PM
CavemenOn the heels of yesterday's upfront presentation, ABC has put up short clips of its new fall pilots on their website. All of the shows introduced, including the mid-season replacements, have clips on the site (the soap Dirty Sexy Money has two clips), including a brief scene from the much-anticipated and already-maligned Cavemen.

I've got to tell you, that feeling of "blah" I got from the pilot descriptions yesterday didn't go away when I saw the clips. None of them look nearly as compelling as what ABC or the other networks had to offer last year; the clip for Cavemen in particular looked pretty bad. The only one that got me interested in seeing the pilot was the clip for Miss/Guided, which won't even premiere until mid-season.

Oh, well. Like most critics, I'll be getting the rough-cut versions of the pilots soon, so we'll see if my "blah" feeling goes away at that point.
