Five Reasons You Should Be Watching Workaholics

Published by under Editorial,Television

I’m not sure how many of you watch the show Workaholics but if you’re not watching it then you really need to.  I would highly recommend getting the DVDs and starting from season one.   For those of you who aren’t familiar, Workaholics is about three main characters, Blake, Adam, and Anders,  who were roommates in college, and continue to share a house together as they transition into adulthood.

The show’s action is generally confined to the main characters’ house and their workplace, a cubicle the three of them share at a telemarketing company called Telamericorp.  And if you’re not watching it already here are five reasons that you should….

Five Television Shows It’s Hard to Believe Lasted This Long

Published by under Editorial,Television

There’s a reason that a television show doesn’t generally last more than a few seasons let alone a decade.   It’s extremely difficult to keep the viewer interested.   Usually in season one you get a feel for the show and the characters.  You realize right off the bat whether or not you like the show.   Season 2 can get more established and you can actually enjoy the show more than simply judge and get used to it.   But after season 2 it takes a lot of effort to keep me interested.

It’s like you know what’s going on and you need something new.   It’s hard to keep that “newness” with the same story and characters year after year.   That’s why you really have to hand it to shows that last over 5 years.   Speaking of which, here are five shows I’m completely surprised lasted this long…..

10 Television Theme Songs That Will Give you Nostalgia

Published by under Television

For me the sense of smell usually elicits the strongest memories.  For example I might come across a certain smell and be taken back to a time when I was five years old at some birthday party.  Like I could actually remember being there.   It almost feels too real.    The reason I bring this up is because sound can do nearly the same thing.

Speaking of which, the other day I was watching Three’s Company and after hearing the theme song I instantly was taken back to my childhood.  It’s pretty amazing what just a simple song can do to the senses.

So I decided to come up with ten television theme songs that will get those memories flowing…..

Eight Catch Phrases From 80s Sitcoms I Still use Today

Published by under Television

Growing up in the 80s leaves a soft spot in my heart for all things pop culture.   I’ve certainly adopted the whole “it was better in my day” type of an attitude.  It’s just natural.   I still think pro wrestling was real, I dig synthesizers, and I certainly have no problem with wearing hot pink.

OK, none of those things matter to me now, but wouldn’t you like to live in a world where they rocked again?  I would.  Speaking of the 80s, if there’s one thing that has stuck with me throughout the years, it’s the use of funny catch phrases from shows.

In fact, here are eight from famous sitcoms that I still use now….

My Six Favorite Cable TV Shows on Right Now

Published by under Television

I don’t like too many things about the Fall.  In fact I pretty much hate everything about it.  It all comes down to the temperatures falling.  It just warps my brain and I get really angry about it.

But I did say there was something I liked it.  And that something is Fall Television.  It’s when all my favorite shows have new episodes.  Today I’d like to focus on Cable TV.

Here are my six favorites on right now….

5 Types of Reality Shows that are Way Overplayed

Published by under Editorial,Television

The degree to which reality TV has taken over the airwaves cannot be fully measured.   It’s just too much.  But when you really think about it, America has reached a high point for itself.   Considering how lazy in general this country is, it’s only fitting that all you have to do is slap a camera on someone, watch them act like an idiot, and you have a hit TV show.

Talk about production value.  But Jesus, can we give it a rest already?  There’s just too much of it out there.

Speaking of which, here are five types of reality shows that need a rest….

The Best American Teen Sitcoms of the 90s

Published by under Editorial,Television

Does anyone remember Saturday morning’s TNBC back in the day?  It usually started around 9am and featured all those dumb looking, semi low budget shows with awful humor and brutal soundtracks?  In other words, your favorite shows back then?

Yes I’m talking about your Saved by the Bell’s and many others.  But it wasn’t just TNBC that dominated the airwaves.  The 90s brought us some serious cheesiness and lame humor that you just had to be entertained.

Check out some of the best American Teen sitcoms of the 90s…..

The Seven Best Side Character Students on South Park

Published by under Editorial,Television

It’s hard to believe that South Park started with that amazing video that went around college campuses back in 1997-98.  I’ll never forget the hilarious Brian Boitano bit and the Jesus/Santa fight.  “There can be only one.”

And now the show is as strong as ever.   I doubt many people who loved it back then still watch for the simple fact that it’s hard to remember the show is still on.  But it’s just as funny and just as crude.   It’s easily one of the best shows on TV.  And it keeps evolving.

It ain’t just the big four that carry the show these days.  It’s all the supporting characters around them.   In particular I’d like to focus on the students that make us laugh.

Here are seven that kick ass…..

Seven 80s TV Characters I’d Definitely Hang Out With

Published by under Editorial,Entertainment,Television

About a month ago I read a cool article the centered on cool 80s film characters to hang out with.  The article touched on seven guys that I have to admit were excellent choices.  You know, dudes like Ferris Bueller and guys you know you could either have a great adventure with or ones that could hook you up with girls.

But how about television?  Just as in movies there are plenty of TV characters that are worthy of company.   Here are seven that I would choose to hang out with…..

5 Cartoons Whose Creators Must Have Been on Drugs

Published by under Editorial,Entertainment,Television

The amazing thing about cartoons is that the majority of them are high symbolic of the feelings and thoughts of adults.  Kids never realize this.  They just like all the pretty colors and zany characters.

However, if you watch them closely you can see tons of symbolism and if you dig deeper you might be able to see a foundation from which the cartoons were created.   For many shows I argue that drugs were a part of the creative process.

If you tell me drugs were part of the creation of these five cartoons then I think you’d be lying…..
