I think the problem with the video game episode was that it was probably aired out of order. Did anyone else get that vibe? All of the episodes before that followed an overarching storyline and all of the episodes afterward did too.
It was pretty apparent that the episode was aired out of order from the end credits. They’re supposed to be expelled, but we see Troy and Abed hanging out in the study room. Pretty big plot hole, especially when you consider how locked down the campus is in the next episode and how Abed had already been banned from the campus in the previous episode.
My guess is that it was probably supposed to air sometime during the fall schedule, possibly as an immediate follow-up to the episode where Pierce’s dad dies.
Does anyone else find that watching SNL through your DVR almost ruins the SNL experience? I just fast forward through all the lame sketches and musical performances so it only takes me like 20 minutes to watch an episode.
My fast forward button got a lot of work during this episode. I won’t watch any “Manuel Ortiz” sketches anymore and I would have fast forwarded straight through Gilly too if it wasn’t for the fact that my boyfriend had never seen a Gilly sketch and wanted to know why I didn’t like the character. He knows now.
I actually fell asleep during Be Kind Rewind! I third this nomination!
I think you’re onto something. They even have a gif of this on the official NBC Parks and Rec site (and the Parks and Rec Facebook group thought it necessary to tell me about this TWICE in the last few hours.)
I saw this book in the store a few days ago and knowing nothing about it other than what could be gleaned from the title and front cover, I was immediately offended. I turned the book around so the front cover was facing away from me. I used to work at a video store where people would do this all the time as a sort of “punishment” to the movies they thought were too wicked or liberal to exist.
I couldn’t believe I was doing it myself, but something inside of me just said “No, I refuse to accept this. Get this out of my sight.” I did it before I even knew what I was doing. It was purely instinctual.
Too bad it didn’t work. This book still exists and the movie soon will too. So I don’t care what tagline they give the movie because I won’t see it with the DVD cover turned around anyway.

This was of course supposed to be a reply to someone else. Oh well.
Gabe… review “The Other Sister” plz.
He also reviewed “Crash” for the WMOAT and as much as I’d like to pretend it didn’t win the best picture, it totally did.
Uh wait… did I do this right?
So I’ve actually seen this movie, despite knowing it was outright garbage from the get-go, but for SOME reason a lot of gay guys seem to think this movie is hilarious and they told my gay boyfriend to watch it, so I had to watch it with him.
And now? I’m pretty sure most gay guys just hate women is all and they were definitely laughing AT the movie, not with it. And if I wasn’t totally gay before I’m like 5000% gayer now for having watched it. I don’t know what all the Prop 8 fuss is about. If this is what marriage makes you become then no thanks. Do not want.
I have no desire to see this movie and not because it’s a movie about Facebook, but because movies about undeserving asshole white guys earning millions of dollars just makes me angry.
The thing I love the most about this is the expression he chose to have on his face with the open fish mouth and the eyes that seem to be trying to tell to do something but I haven’t figured it out.
This is like the precursor to the Hypnotoad. It’s like, he’s not doing anything and yet I can’t look away. This guy is making inappropriate eye contact with me and I don’t even know where he is.
I actually work at Blockbuster (only on the weekends though. I’m a normal human being on the weekdays.) When I saw this article my heart skipped a beat because I was really excited that I might not have to go to work tonight. I think I’m still going to have to go. Oh well.
The thing I hate about this story is that this is NOT a hard record to beat. Anyone with an hour to kill an enough funds to buy 216 pairs of underwear could easily beat this kid’s record. If I didn’t have a shame center in my brain, I’d definitely go do it.
Of all the mysteries I wanted them to solve, “what happens after death?” was not one of them. Color me disappointed that they made such a lame, half-hearted ending to this series with the whole “Okay everyone, let’s go to Valhalla now” thing. If you had told me back in season one that nothing that was actually cool about the show mattered and that everything was just set up so these people could meet each other in heaven, I’d have just stopped right there and called it a day.
I have to wonder what keeps the bodies of NBC executives filled up because they certainly all lack any type of soul whatsoever. Parks and Recreation is the best show on Thursday night right now with nary a bad episode this entire season. It has consistently out shined every show on Thursday nights in terms of constant quality. And now NBC thinks the best way to promote it would be to dick around with the schedule? Is NBC headquarters located in parallel universe where only the worst choices can be made?
Just about every week a woman I work with asks me if I’ve seen this. When I say I haven’t, she goes on about how much she loves the movie and how she loved how free spirited Amelia was and so on. And every time she suggests this movie to me, I can’t help but think of your constant campaign for this movie to end up on the WMOAT list.
To be fair, the Japanese have been doing this for awhile. I once watched a 15 second ad for a Japanese drink that featured: a guy with a nest on his head. A dancing drink can that freaked out and opened up to reveal Gandalf inside, a gold angel, a silver angel, and a bunch of kids doing the moonwalk. In 15 seconds!
If peeing your pants is cool, consider me Miles Davis.
God can apparently create the universe from nothingness, but he can’t conjure you up some musical talent, no matter how much you believe in him.
Hey! That Triceratops in the trailer was totally voiced by Kristen Schaal (Mel from Flight of the Conchords.) So exciting!
Ooo! I’ve been doing this for the last few years or so! I can’t wait:
Here’s a few from the vaults!
2009 (Watchmen Valentines)::
2008 (30 Rock Valentines):
2007 (Kids in the Hall Valentines):
2006 (Strangers With Candy Valentines):
This year I’m going with Lost as my theme.
Happy Valentimes ya’ll!
I noticed that too! It’s like, what the hell!? Butterfinger found the cash somehow to use most of the cast, why can’t Coke use some of the money they save by using slave labor to bring in Harry Shearer for 15 minutes of work?
Also, what the hell is the commercial trying to tell us? That we should all be loving and forgiving to billionaires that lose their money? Why is Mr. Burns a hero somehow? Did becoming poor make up for his years and years of being a dick?
Wha? Is Triumph even Conan’s to begin with? Doesn’t Robert Smigel perform the character and own the rights to him? I know I saw Triumph on the short lived “TV Funhouse” before I ever saw him on Conan’s show and I know he’s branched off to do many other appearances as well. I think there might be some loopholes available to let Triumph off the NBC leash so to speak.
Actually if you consider Adult Swim, TBS and syndication, Seth McFarlane has probably close to like 4-5 hours EVERY DAY and 5.5 to 6.5 hours every Sunday. Scary right?
