Spiffy and AA talk TV

September 26, 2010

So, Saturday night, Spiffy started texting me incessantly about all kinds of shit, but his one noteworthy idea was he and I teaming up for a Previews Reviews-style post on the first week of season premieres from the fall TV schedule. Due to my lack of AIM on the computer I was using, we ended up on Facebook (he’s Andy, I’m Me). This was the result.

One of us was drunk, but I’m not telling who; try to guess for yourself.



Dave’s Fake Emmy’s: The Best of the 2009-2010 Season

September 8, 2010

I started this post about the time of May finales, but never finished it. Then I forgot about the post until the real Emmy’s came up, and while I didn’t watch those, I still feel qualified to say why my opinions are better.

“Sounds like a great idea,” you’re probably saying to yourself, likely followed by: “God, that Dave is sexy, I’d like to give him my award.” My reply to that is: 1. What a weird euphemism for your sexual advances, Goki; and 2. Well, don’t get excited. My categories are made up, I have no set number of nominees, my actual awarding is very biased, my memory is potentially flawed, and I don’t have the widest breadth of taste out there. I watch comedies and … well, that’s it. My unwillingness to expand my viewing choices has rankled Spiffy once or twice in the past, but I might as well cap my TV watching somewhere. I have no doubt that there’s many great dramas out there that I’m missing out on, but I’ll survive without them. I have enough drama in my life, and while I often enjoy watching dramatic movies, when I turn on the TV for something other than sports, I’m usually in a comedy kind of mood. Having said all that … I think I put together a fun list.

So, here we go!


Look! News!

November 12, 2009

Some fun stuff around the Interwebz to hold you over until we post more new stuff (and unveil our message board!):

Bendis answers your questions on Twitter. Maybe this thing isn’t so bad after all…

-Dan Didio gives you a tour of the DC offices. And answers your questions. Dan is a generous man.

-Check out all of Marvel’s SIEGE images. I swear the shadowy figure in this one is Beak (Barnell Bohusk) with a sword.

Two-Face is showing up in this week’s Batman: Brave and the Bold. So is Doctor Fate.

Smallville’s getting its own TV movie (well, two-hour long episode), penned by the mighty Geoff Johns and guest-starring the Justice Society… as well as Amanda Waller. By the way, you’ll never guess who’s playing the live version of the Wall (hint: “Across 110th Street…”).

Marvel Studios names its new co-president. I swear, I’m never going to get used to seeing the Marvel and Disney logos together like that…

Brian K. Vaughan talks The Escapists (which just got reprinted in softcover) and leaving Lost. BKV’s the man; I’ve got to buy more Ex Machina trades. Oh, and The Escapists, d’urh.

-Hey kids! Dr. Horrible’s getting his own comic! By Zack Whedon! I love Dr. Horrible. If you haven’t watched Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog yet, you owe it to yourself.

Mmk, we’re done. Happy reading!
