Surely the most quotable man since Shakespeare, but don’t call him Shirley: Leslie Nelson has died, but we still have his lines. Here’s a good mash-up of some of his greatest jokes, with one more video in the post. That video? The greatest line ever uttered.

The top five moments from Ugly Americans season one

Written by

Comments: --

In its first season, Ugly Americans has brought the best out of horror with its satirical premise and violent, dark comedy. It proved to be one of the weirdest shows on television by pitting bearded little wizard men against each other (as show above) and continually punishing protagonist Mark Lilly’s bleeding heart approach to his job as a social worker.

The show vacillates from silly humor to seriously fucked-up scenarios with a lot of blood and gore. As I’ve said before, fantasy, sci-fi and monster flick parodies tend to lighten the mood of Ugly American‘s otherwise abrasive and super-violent humor, which it share with other cartoons from Augenblick Studios such as Superjail!.

So here are a few scenes from this brief, 14-episode glimpse of a world where otherworldly creature are integrating into society instead of hiding from it:

Lackluster filler episode does little to push Supernatural Season 6 plot forward

Written by

Following a lead from their new boss Crowley, the Winchester brothers attempt to hunt down and capture the werewolf alpha. They come nowhere close to finding it, instead stumbling on a pack of skin-walkers, a monster more appropriate to a show like True Blood. Is that what Supernatural is shooting for now? Hope not…

The Walking Dead: Season 1 Episode 1 Recap

Written by

Comments: 4

The first episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead begins with sherriff’s deputy Rick Grimes blowing out the brains of a zombie girl.

The rest — the background of the scene, the abandoned cars the rotting corpses — is left begging for answers, which come slowly.

It’s a cynical hook-the-viewer-as-fast-as-possible intro that has little to do with the rest of the episode, and it’s hardly necessary given the buzz the series has received. But, who cares? Exploding zombie heads are fun. And the rest of the show was hardly disappointing. I can forgive it a cynical introduction.

Read our spoiler-laden episode recap below.
