Thoughts on Television, Comedy and Pop Culture

The perfect addition to any roadtrip? Benji’s Cool Times Summer Jamz Mix.

I’m confused by this joke - as an uptight nerdy type, should I be embarrassed by my love for Salt-N-Pepa’s Shoop?  Or does it the inclusion of said song on both Benji’s Cool Times Summer Jamz Mix and my Pump up the Volume Subway / Shower Playlist just signify how awesome we are?  Because really, you haven’t had a fun Friday night until you’ve spent an evening listening to Salt-N-Pepa while playing Settlers of Catan…

The AV Club’s amazing series of post-season showrunner interviews continues with Breaking Bad’s Vince Gilligan.  As with Dan Harmon on Community (season 2), Michael Schur on Parks and Recreation (season 3), and Louis C.K. on Louie (season 2), the AV Club walks Vince Gilligan through each episode of the recently-wrapped fourth season, offering readers a trove of insight and commentary from the series’ creator throughout the four-part feature.  Part one is up today, two through four will be posted later this week.  Like Shark Week for TV snobs, indeed.

One of our commenters suggested that our week of Breaking Bad coverage is like shark week for people who like good television. If that’s the case, our four-part episode walkthrough with creator Vince Gilligan is the equivalent of non-stop footage of sharks jumping out of the ocean. So excellent.

Louis C.K. is doing two shows at the Bellhouse tonight in Brooklyn.  Tickets went on sale - available online only - at 10:00am this morning; ticketweb server crashed at, like, 9:55am; tickets still somehow sold out by 10:01am.  

Yes, modern life is mostly amazing, but can we please go back to the days of camping out in a line outside the box office so I can feel like the people who actually got tickets for shows like this got them out of perseverance and dedication rather than dumb luck? 

Found this gem on YouTube while searching for clips for today’s Demski Five.  ”Breaking Bad on ABC.”  Well done, Internet!

The Demski Five - "Flawless Episodes" - Day 3

Inspired by last Sunday’s awe-inspiring episode of Breaking Bad, Day 3 of this week’s Demski Five - “Flawless Episodes” is up on the blog.  Yes, it’s an episode from the same series that inspired this week’s theme.  I couldn’t help it - Breaking Bad is just that good.
