Real World Recap – Wow, Dunbar Annoys the Shit Out of Me. Friday, September 28, 2007

This episode opens with the roommates getting a package from Contiki (the well-known “young adult” travel agency), and the girls go absolutely apeshit. This is followed by Cohutta proclaiming that he is concerned about working with them because none of the girls have ever had to work. Isaac and Dunbar agree, and they all sit around bitching about how they are capable of working so much harder than the girls (sexism much?). With that thrilling beginning to the episode, how could you possibly avoid joining me after the jump? You can’t – it was a rhetorical question.

Previously, Chicken was just too funky for these folks and was sent packing. Tonight, we’re back with Fighting Tiger the morning after Tribal.  We don’t seen any grieving for Chicken; instead, we see Smarmy, Condescending Dave addressing the rest of the tribe like they are mentally-challenged 5 year-olds.  He has his ideas about the shelter and they better fall in line.  We get a talking head with a guy I swear they just flew in for this episode; where was he last week?  His name might be Erik.  (more…)

I’m on my way to Sweet Home Chicago for a weekend of Michigan football and meaningless Tigers baseball, so in honor of the state of Illinois, here’s a underrated 1990s classic from one of Champbana’s own, Hum.

Urban HIMYMs: “Wait for It” — THIS IS SO GOING IN MY BLOG! Wednesday, September 26, 2007

Urban HIMYMs logo


Ladies and gentlemen, I’m back. After about a month off, I’m shifting gears here on DeadOn and I’ll be presenting a season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome to Urban HIMYMs.

I feel very lucky to have been in on the ground floor with HIMYM, in that it is arguably my favorite sitcom currently on the air (it runs neck and neck with 30 Rock). If I feel a special kinship with Ted Mosby, it’s because we’re the same age, still single, and we both worry that one day Bob Saget will be doing a voiceover of our lives. But I do feel like so many of the pop culture references are aimed directly at me. So, if I am a little too sympathetic towards Ted, please understand why. And with that, on with the recap.

(P.S.: There may be no rhyme or reason to this effort the first few times out. There will be spoilers, you have been so warned, but for right now, I am just trying to get my sealegs as a recapper.) (more…)

House: Season 4, Episode 1 Wednesday, September 26, 2007

So last night was the season premiere of House and I couldn’t be happier to again share my Tuesday nights with Hugh Laurie, the sexiest thing with a cane since Mr. Peanut. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t spend the last four days watching Season Three in its entirety to prepare myself for tonight’s premiere. I’d also be lying if I said that I didn’t eat Cool Whip for breakfast, so who knows if I’m a credible narrator.

Last night’s episode, titled “Alone”, opens with a young man standing in the parking lot of an office building, trying to convince his girlfriend to leave work so they can go see Star Wars (Episode 4) in the theatre, which makes me wonder how this guy has a girlfriend in the first place. When he starts to apologize for getting upset with her, perhaps relieved that he’ll have the freedom to masturbate in peace, the building starts to tremble and eventually collapses.

It’s never really explained why the building caved in but suffice it to say that I added “Freakish Building Collapse” to the list of reasons I’m glad I’m unemployed, right above “Can Spend Weekdays Pretending Neighbor’s Springer Spaniel Is My Own”. Oh sure, I don’t have insurance and I’m out of so-called “solid foods” but at least I’m not going to be buried alive under a pile of rubble and rebar and toner cartridges.

Cue the Massive Attack, opening credits, and commercial break. (more…)

In a new feature here at DeadOn (and because I just got the SBTB DVDs) I thought I would take us all back to the Saturday mornings of our childhood. Well, most of our childhoods. I’ve discovered that anybody born between about 1976-1983, give or take, tends to have really fond memories of the gang from Bayside. So I’m going to start bringing you two recapped episodes every Saturday morning. We’re working chronologically based on the production codes of each episode because that is how they were filmed and intended to be broadcast. Join me today after the jump for “King of the Hill” and “Fatal Distraction.”

Real World Recap – Gay Mardi Gras is Kind of Redundant, No? Friday, September 21, 2007

Posted by The NY Kid in the balls.
4 comments

This episode opens up with the roommates sitting around at home discussing the fact that the upcoming weekend is the gay and lesbian Mardi Gras in Sydney (which apparently is some sort of international capitol for the gays). Cohutta lets everyone know that he doesn’t want to go since homosexuality makes him uncomfortable (shocking point of view considering that he’s from Georgia), although he says he might go if KellyAnne walks next to him so that everyone knows that he isn’t gay (how enlightened!). Follow me after the jump for the rest of the ridiculousness.

Boys will be boys

Dear Tuffy,

I admit it; I’ve become lax in eating right and working out. Still, I don’t feel too motivated to do much about it. I don’t think I look that bad, frankly. I feel okay, too. When should I consider getting back to the dip in the dieting roller coaster?

Sincerely,
Wobbly but Not Down in Walla Walla

Oh, kids, where will this all lead? The episode opens with Dunbar, Cohutta and KellyAnne out drinking at a bar. Clever watchers/readers will know that this is quite the trio, as Dunbar believes that KellyAnne is in love with him when in reality she has a crush on Cohutta even though she claims that she doesn’t. Cohutta, after giving a passable impersonation of “Blue Steel” (look it up, bitches), flirts with KellyAnne, telling her “I’ll teach you life lessons.” Follow me after the jump for more southern charm.

Ok – so as Orson at EDSBS and Holly from Ladies… (and here too!) have been kind enough to let us know – its Hate Week for a lot of us college football fans. Be it Florida/Tennessee, Notre Dame/Michigan, or my own personal inferno of rage for the week – Arkansas/Alabama. This weekend is about nothing more than pure fucking rage and hate and FOOBAW!!!!! So, let us get through this god-awful Friday and let the Saturday drinking begin as soon as possible. In the meantime…

YAAAAAAHHH!!!!!! KILLFUCKFIGHT!!!!
