TV

That blackened, dried up, prune-like meatball rattling around inside that otherwise hollow skull, occasionally sticking to the beer-brown lining of its rotting, calloused walls, has long since given up hope of ever encountering James Joyce or Wolfy Ammy Mozart except perhaps during the eye of that fevered storm you call your hallucinatory psychosis, although seeing them fishing for chocolate rabbits in a custard-filled volcano doesn't really count as a true intellectual encounter. So, we instead must rehydrate it with the salty brine of sensationalist, emotional pornography. Long story short, TV is all you got and it's what we're gonna chat about in this awesome thread started by me, Paddy.

I think sports, news and everything in between can be left for other threads which are currently doing a fine job of warehousing them, so let's stick to cartoons, drama, sitcoms, documentaries, sketch shows, panel shows and so on. Or not, it's your call! You can talk about Reality TV if you like, but I think it's only fair to warn you that I'll be choking a young child to death with my boiling, effervescent spunk every time you do.

I'll get us started, as is my custom:

The latest South Park series hasn't gotten an audible laugh out of me yet. Has the show really run its course? I get the impression that the show could still be funny if Trey and Matt would go back to the show's roots, instead of sending the characters on these huge, flashy, bluntly-moral escapades. Social commentary is great n'all, but I'd much prefer some comedy if I had to choose between the two.

I don't watch Wednesday night South Park's anymore since Ghost Hunters is on. Although I'm skeptical and can usually debunk what they claim to prove I still like watching them for the locations and storylines.
I think that South Park should do an episode using either them or the Ghost Adventures crew. Maybe have all the deceased characters gang up on Cartman or something like that. I do catch new SP's once in awhile, but I agree that the ones I have seen aren't nearly as funny as the old ones used to be.

The new South Park episodes usually seem to be shat out of some sort of formula. I still enjoy them, but not as much as the old stuff. I am weeks behind on southpark though because I just watch it from the internet.

Has anyone seen the new season 3 Metalocalypse (sp) episodes? I'm actually a lot more impressed with them that the second or first seasons, not to say I don't like those seasons, this one just seems a lot more thought out.

Metalocalypse = greatness.

A million miles from nowhere the dragon lance burns hot.
By the fire of a horse's ghost... a minnow would be lost.
Ch-ch-ch-changes... mmm... uh... tits.
A fish... a fish with tits. Tittyfish.

Cops never gets old. Even the episodes from the early 90's. I dunno, there's something so entertaining about watching crackheads get busted.

I try to keep my TV time to an absolute minimum. Luckily everything sucks so it isn't very hard to do. I follow:

South Park
Breaking Bad
The Daily Show
Kenny vs Spenny
Arrested Development - My absolute favorite show in existence. Its a triumph in the world of comedy and its absolute perfection is the only proof I've seen of a higher power. It also has David Cross.

Yeah, I hate to admit it but this last season has been on the weak side. However, if you look at everything that they have done and how great the majority of it is, its understandable that it must become increasingly more difficult to keep up with themselves. And hell, not everything can be a home-run. Still, I've laughed at a lot of the stuff on the new season but it definitely isn't keeping up with its previous LPM (laughs per minute). But really Paddy? You didn't find the Scroty McBoogerballs episode funny? Last night's finale to the two-parter was a big let down.

They have done shit with Ghost Hunters and its pretty funny. Dead Celebrities haunt Ike and the Ghost Hunters come in to investigate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3OBkB-F368.

You really pick that awful, fake show over South Park?

I dated a girl who's father had been on Cops two or three times. It was coppy.

Haha that reminds me of the South Park episode where Cartman thinks he's dead. Fucking classic.

I've never watched Ghost Hunters, but I've seen similar shows in the past. They're all essentially the same; a spooky location, crystal energy-believing inhabitants and a lot of running around, breathing heavily and night-vision cameras. Does Ghost Hunters feature a "medium" of some kind?

Yeah, they seem to be leaning a little too heavily on established ideas. They're now so predicable that I can usually get a fairly good idea of what will happen just from reading the episode title haha. I think Butters is one of the best characters the show has, and his early peripheral status meant that the writers didn't put too much "effort" into him which is probably why he was so fucking funny, and now that he's a beloved character they try to hit as many marks with him as possible, i.e. his innocence and naivety, his willingness to be used and the fact that the other characters treat him like shit. It's the same with the rest of the characters, too. It's like the writers think these characteristics are what's funny, but that's only about 5% of it.

I've never seen this, but I've heard good things about it. I'll have to give it a whirl.

Robot Chicken has its moments but I've found myself struggling to get to the end of many of its 11-minute episodes, which ain't a good sign

Haha I stand corrected, that episode did get a few chuckles from me. The part where the guy kept throwing up and spitting into the bucket got me going, and obviously shitting from one's own tits is always safe territory for comedy.

I've got a friend who rants and raves about how great that Tim and Eric Awesome Show is and was doing so just yesterday youtubing random songs they did. Some made me kind of smirk, but I'm sure it something you've got to watch while you listen as it was only audio. I was never interested in checking the show out until I saw a clip of them in Maynard's wine documentary playing faux TV critics (or something along those lines) making fun of him and his wine ("You'd have to be a TOOL to try and make good wine in Arizona.")

Chris, have you ever watched Mr. Show? It's a sketch show written and performed by David Cross and some other guy. I came across it (ha!) by chance a while back, it's not bad.

Dyl, thanks for the link! I'll have to check it out later.
I do remember an episode that Cartman thinks he's dead.

GH doesn't use the usual "spooky" stuff and they basically try to find a reasonable explanation for weird stuff that happens. I'd sure like to know why I keep getting glimpses of small animals near me, but if that's all that's haunting me that's fine. The 2 guys that head it work for Roto Rooter. I know you like them already, Paddy. A lot of the stuff I've experienced and to hear the reasoning behind the stuff makes my life a little easier since I'm the biggest scaredy cat sometimes.

My hubby just said that Matt and Trey are on the radical M's hit list again for another portrayal of Mohammed.

Some mentioned The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margret in another thread. That shit was hilarious. Channel 4 is picking up the series and I couldn't be more excited about a show.

Best stuff on now days:

Real Time with Bill Maher - yea, he is liberal as shit, but he is a helluva interviewer. Love the show and it keeps me current.

Breaking Bad - good show

Top Chef - hot chicks and awesome food. Too bad the second half is all judging. Just watch the first part.


My all time favorite shows (i r teh HBO whore):

Deadwood
The Wire
Rome
John from Cincinnati
Six Feet Under
Carnivale
The Sopranos
etc.

Freaks & Geeks
Ren & Stimpy
Twin Peeks
Firefly (only sci-fi show I really enjoy)
Sponge Bob
Batman: The Animated Series

I would recommend it if you have time.

Yeah that was me. Are they really? Thank god! Id love to be able to actually watch that show. For those not in the know its a new show written by David Cross and (I believe) Will Arnett, staring both.

I enjoy Top Chef whenever I happen to catch it. The last season was good with some solid people in it. I also have a huge crush on Gale Simmons, who I think is infinitely hotter than that skinny bitch Padmay (or whatever her name is). I don't know what it is about her but I'm just incredibly attreacted to her.

Mr. Show is pretty good. I've got the seasons but I haven't watched it in a long while.

Any Mystery Science Theater fans?

Saw it. Loved it. Recommend it. Better than Band of Brothers...except for the pilot. That episode rapes.

O'Reily Factor, fucking bastard barely talks about what I wanna hear, which is anything about pot or drugs in general. It's a lot more interesting than this "Obama, Healthcare, Overseas Controversy" crap over, and over, and over again. Those, actually, aren't as bad as the "Small" controversies, Legal segment with 2 dumb bitches, that shit.

Glen Beck - Fucking asshole, but sometimes I like his brainwashing. He lures me in, just, right, whenever I spot it, that is.

Other shit, Ugly Americans, Metalocalypse, FAMILY GUY, other Fox cartoons, Comedy Central, MMA Fighting, ect.
