The Dangers of Supercool

| 3 comments

Upright Citizens Brigade: Supercool Brownies

Have you talked to your children about the dangers of Supercool? Just one wand of this nightmarish drug can result in the kind of bizarre, unhinged behavior seen in the above video. It even ruined the career of pop superstars The Titte Brothers.

Upright Citizens Brigade: Cyborg Training

Luckily, there IS help. As you can see in the above video, our government is training cyborg detectives to "sniff out" supercool in our schools and places of business.

Eternal vigilance, however, is required. A good first step? Check out the Upright Citizens Brigade Season 2 on DVD. You'll be glad you did.

Have Netflix? Watch A Thousand Clowns

| 4 comments


My favorite movie (well, one of my three favorite movies), "A Thousand Clowns," has been out of print since the early 90s. It never came out on DVD.

HOWEVER, astute Max Funster Carol noticed that for some reason, it IS available on Netflix "Instant Viewing."

So, if you have Netflix and a PC, you can watch the movie by clicking here, then clicking on "Play." I urge you to do so.

Not Just the Best of The Larry Sanders Show

| 3 comments


A lot of people haven't seen The Larry Sanders Show. It aired on HBO before HBO was known for its original series. The first season DVD release was botched, and there never was a second season release. It ran briefly in syndication, but that was at 1 AM on UPN and whatnot.

But it was really, truly special. Maybe The Simpsons was more important, possibly a little better. Maybe. But besides that, Larry Sanders is the best sitcom of the last 25 years. Perfectly drawn characters, hilariously funny, a truly amazing program.

You owe it to yourself and your family to at the very least buy the new DVD set, "Not Just the Best of the Larry Sanders Show,", which was released today.

Or, to put it another way: if you don't buy it, we can't be friends anymore.

PS: Venture Bros. Season Two came out today as well.
