How I am watching #EverySimpsonsEver without cable

This marathon is amazing. I love everything about it. I got to watch some of it at work. But since I am not at work now, and I don’t have cable, I don’t know what to do.

I see tweets about it but I am not watching it. Luckily I have my DVDs. I am seeing which episode they’re airing now and I plug in the corresponding DVD to it.

Right now it’s time for Mr. Sparkle.

And they retweeted this tweet of mine!

ABC Debuts ‘Selfie’ Pilot Online Ahead of Premiere

Samuel:

This is so true and so good!

Originally posted on Variety:

The latest marketing move from ABC for its upcoming sitcom “Selfie,” if nothing else, is fitting with theme.

The Alphabet debuted the pilot of the series on Hulu and ABC.com ahead of its premiere next month. The show, a modern retelling of “My Fair Lady,” stars Karen Gillan of “Doctor Who” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” fame as Eliza Dooley, a narcissist who is obsessed with becoming famous over social media. John Cho plays a marketing guru who helps her rebrand her image after a video of hers goes viral, showing her there’s more to it than Facebook and Twitter — hence, the irony of debuting the show via social media.

Still, to debut a show over social media that targets Millennials is certainly appropriate for its desired audience. The show is not set to premiere on ABC for more than a month, with an airdate of Sept. 30.

RIP Robin Williams

When I was trying to figure out my career about 10 years ago, I was very close to get into teaching over my career as a writer.

The foundation for my passion to teach can be traced back to “Dead Poet’s Society.” What Robin Williams did in that movie made me believe that I can influence and change lives, open up avenues to young minds that they may never have thought possible. It’s not a glamorous profession to be a teacher, but it is the greatest joy to share your knowledge, your hopes and your love with one another and see it grow into something beautiful.

RIP Robin Williams

See 5 minutes of the ‘Simpsons’-‘Family Guy’ crossover episode

Samuel:

This feels wrong.

If you’ve always wondered what would happen if Peter Griffin and Homer Simpson hung out at a bar while Bart and Stewie made prank phone calls, Family Guy is about to satisfy your crossover craving. In the Sept. 28 season premiere, the albino Griffins wind up by accident in Springfield, where they are greeted warmly by the hepatits-y Simpsons. But a fast friendship christened with delicious doughnuts may be forever destroyed by an argument over Pawtucket Ale and Duff Beer, which leads to an epic chicken fight.

To see the collision of these two animated worlds—plus a cameo by Bob from Bob’s Burgers—check out nearly five minutes of footage from the double-sized episode, which was screened on Saturday during the Family Guy panel at Comic-Con.

Jim Ross’ WWE Career Officially Ends Today

Samuel:

The greatest ever.

It’s time to shed a bitter tear for the WWE commentary situation, because today Jim Ross, the best commentator WWE has or ever will have, is officially done with the company.

WLjimross2

Jim Ross had a tumultuous relationship with WWE for years. The company thought he was too old and unphotogenic for TV, but they couldn’t find a replacement even a 10th as good as him, so he was brought back then sent home again more times than a person could count over the past five years.

The final blow came at the WWE 2K14 panel at last year’s Summerslam Axxess — Ric Flair was clearly drunk at the event, and Ross was blamed for not reining him in. Ironically Flair is once again a regular fixture on television, while Ross is still paying for the crime of not babysitting a 64-year-old man vigilantly enough. WWE everybody! By…

‘Girl Meets World’ is everything I expected and I have to deal with it

I loved the idea of them bringing back this for our nostalgia. But the moment I found out it was a Disney show, it was going to be exactly what I expected.

The audience this show caters to are pre-teens. I know. I used to watch Disney Channel in college and I just used the noise to tone out my brain. It’s not for people my age who grew up with the original show. This show was going to cater to the audience. And it did.

This is basically the first season of BMW except with girl main characters. You’ll see Cory and Topanga occasionally but that’s it. The whole show is going to be around these new characters and it’s not going to be anything we can relate to anymore.

And since it’s a Disney show, it will last maybe four seasons and that’s it. Nostalgia is great and I might give the second episode a chance. But I know I can’t expect it to be what I want it to be. The show is what it has to be and I have to live with it. The show is not for me. It’s for them.

NBC’s Crisis and their confusing portrayal of Chinese people

I will give them this prop: Chinese people watching Chinese TV. Although I can’t understand why they would hire someone who doesn’t know Chinese to speak Chinese. That sounds like the Cantonese of someone who doesn’t know the language and tried to say something they read off a script. Horrible.

The mom got it. The husband, I don’t know. His English is bad, which is good I guess. But the wife’s English is too perfect. Like that’s the only language she really knows.

What a shame.
