I know it’s been a bit since I’ve updated this blog, and you can blame that on college starting back up and now homework actually being assigned. No Gen Eds to actually take up my time this semester too, which is annoying.
Anywho, Futurama is a surprisingly underrated show, even today after having five glorious seasons and now going on their sixth. However, this year, Futurama has been pulling out every single stop as far as quality of writing, animation, and wit. Dealing with philosophical themes and issues of mortality and the continuum of time, Futurama provides some exceptional artistic presentation combined with the humor of the show.
I really can’t explain the intricacies of the current 6th season very eloquently, since I’m not a writer for Futurama and have that kind of superhero-type writing ability, but I definitely recommend episode 6, Lethal Inspection, and episode 7, The Late Philip J. Fry as episodes to watch that will both make you smile and laugh, as well as tear up a bit.
As always, stay awesome my friends,
South Park was awesome last night. I really enjoyed the vamps vs goths as well as Butters when he’s in Cartman’s room. There’s some jokes against Twilight, Hot Topic, and you’ll even see the backbone of every family that Butters’ dad expounds upon. Call of Duty 5 also shows up in this episode. Enjoy, perse!
Favorite Part: Butters changes, and becomes ungroundable… Hilarious.
Last night was an excellent episode of South Park. In it, the guys are horror struck as everyone else is all singing and dancing in a parody of a recent musical movie. Stan is paranoid that Wendy is falling for the highly attractive 3rd grader, Briden, and the guys must learn to deal with the overly popular musical eccentricity of their peers.
Personal favorite part: When Cartman talks about how he tried to kill himself and failed. One of the best quotes of the week. Enjoy!
Story: Ripped from High School Musical 3, but rags on it to the extent that you want. If you have a hatred for this popular phenomenon, however, you may feel like this episode is a punch in the dick. Just like any South Park plot, it’s a well written story, but depends upon the person watching it. I personally took it as an exposition about popular fads that are only as good as long as they are popular.
Jokes: There were two very notable jokes that made the group of people watching it burst out in laughter for in excess of 10 seconds. You’ll know them when you hear them. Due to the musical content of the show, they had to cut back on some of the dialogue jokes, but there are some notable satirical lyrics in the songs. You’ll also love the scenes with Briden’s father.
Characters: The group pulls off a great singing session, and Briden’s father is hilarious.
I know this is a tad late, but South Park came out with a brilliantly well-designed take on the election results. Once again, they parody a movie as they show the results of the election. My personal favorite parts are the scenes with Randy, the hospital, and their take on Sarah Palin. Enjoy!
I’m not necessarily a big fan of Anime. The plots, characters, and styles are most of the times ridiculous. However, sometimes I get into a certain series and it turns out to be ridiculously well crafted, like Trigun and Cowboy Bebop.
Right now, I’m watching this series that came out a little while ago that my friend sent me, and it’s pretty decent. There is some very intelligent writing with some interesting themes. Although sometimes the investigation reasoning can be almost made up, it’s interesting to see how the main character changes, and simply how far he will go to achieve his dream.

Pan flute bands are popping up all over the world, but Stan, Kenny, Cartman, Craig, and Kyle all cash in on it. However, with the government’s new plan on cloistering all of the Pan flute bands in the world and battling the “pandemic”, horrible things start happening…
The style of the show is based on a recent movie, try and guess it. Enjoy! I personally enjoyed Randy Marsh’s handling of the camera and annoyance, it was quite hilarious. It was kind of slow to start, but there are some decent jokes in there. The scenes with Craig ragging on the kids was a little overdone for my liking, but an overall great show =]
