yeah,that wasn't one of his finest - but young frankenstein and blazing saddles are classics.  I didn't realize he's one of a handful of people who have won an oscar, a tony, a grammy, and an emmy.  For 86, he's doing pretty well.


Got the EGOT, huh?

Killer Karaoke is on TruTV (formerly Court TV) Fridays 9 pm; repeats early Sat 1:00 am and Saturday noon.

A cross between any reality-show singing competition and Fear Factor/Jackass.






Co-host Australian model Tara Beaulieu

"formerly Court TV"? That's a personality transformation.

Also, that show seriously sounds like a parody show, like MILF Island.

So I just finished season 2 of Parks & Rec on Netflix.

Episodes 1-4: meh, I'm OK with this
Episode 5: wow this is crap
Episodes 6-8: okay never mind this is getting awesome
Episodes 9-24: goddamn this is one of the best sitcom seasons I've ever seen

The smile on Ron Swanson's face when he hears they're going to shut down the government might be the funniest thing on a TV camera since Tobias Funke wondering where are his hard-boiled eggs.

Parks and Rec is amazing. Season 1 is garbage because of the plot between Boringguy and Poeller. She acted way too much like Michael in the Office. Luckily she finds her place by Season 2. Definitely some of the funniest crap.

Also, the Walking Dead.... god damn!

I've watched a lot of clips of Ron Swanson on YouTube but when I watched it on Netflix I thought it was "meh" as a whole.  Maybe I need to keep watching or just skip to season 2.

As I've said, Season 1 is garbage. No need to watch it. There are a few funny parts and that's it. Season 2 is where it kicks in.

Ron's character doesn't become great until Season 2, and even then it's only really funny in the context of each episode/with each character.

Between MD's win, steelers beating joe flacco (HAHAHAHAHA) and the solid night of TV, yesterday was a great day.

Parks and Rec has more peaks abdominal valleys than most great shows,  but by the end of a season,  they tend to be very strong

I love autocorrect.

But yes Nathan, I was told to skip S1, and I did skip S1, and the first few episodes of S2 I was cautiously optimistic, as charted, but now? Jesus I love that show.

It might help you to know that for some reason, all of S1 was filmed at the same time, so it's like the slight awkwardness and hesitancy of a pilot episode, but across an entire series instead of just being in the pilot.

wait until you get to Li'l Sebastian, I think that's about the high point for the show (maybe slightly on the down slope). Also Ron Swanson as a boyscout troop leader

I'd like to think that every person in this world is. I don't care where it is something like this happens, it's horrible. I don't even know if there are enough prayers to be said that can ever comfort the victims, and there are sooooo many and that's not even counting those slain.

I really hope that God smites Westboro! I really really do. It's been a long time since there's been a good smiting and those bastards sure do deserve it. Sorry for the derail.

The news anchor is having real trouble holding it together.
I couldn't take it anymore when he read those kids names. :(


Then, a direct fade to Survivor :doh:

Of course they'd tell you that this massacre is a smiting. @ssholes.
