Hulu astounds me with what is so available in their catalogue (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia! The Big Lebowski! ALL Arrested Development episodes! I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, the Munsters?!) but this, this is a sweet, sweet addition.
Season 4 begins September 18th on FX. They’re running bits of this music video as promos on the channel right now. Check it. Season 3 comes out on DVD September 9th too. ROCK FLAG AND EAGLE
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” masterminds Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton are “boldly going” to broadcast television.
The trio has inked a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV and has landed a pilot order from Fox for “Boldly Going Nowhere,” a single-camera comedy.
Under the pact with 20th TV, McElhenney, Day and Howerton will develop new series for the studio, but their services will be in second position to their work on their quirky FX comedy, which has been renewed for a fourth season.
“Nowhere,” a high-concept comedy about what happens day-to-day on an intergalactic spaceship helmed by a rogue captain, is based on an idea by Adam Stein, McElhenney, Day and Howerton’s assistant, which he pitched to them in August.
At the time, the trio was busy editing the third season of “Sunny,” but they liked the premise.
“All of us grew up watching ‘Star Trek’ and other sci-fi series, and they’re always about these adventures,” McElhenney said. “We thought a great area to explore is what happens between the adventures, how the crew members take care of daily routine stuff on the spaceship.”
Rest of Hollywood Reporter article says Day, Howerton and McElhenney will not be on the show though. So we have to cross our fingers and hope they find people with even an 1/8th of the talent of Charlie Day. Premise sounds a little…well, Red Dwarf-ish? Am I wrong? I kind of hardly remember Red Dwarf yet I know I’ve watched so much of it. I am the most-forgettingest sci-fi fan ever. Also the second time around I nearly typed Black Dwarf. Clearly I remember nothing of that show. Anyhow, Philly has quickly become one of my favorite shows – its misanthropic and twisted world view is a nice palate cleanser after say, accidentally seeing 2 minutes of American Idol.
Alright, the only way I can break this down is like this:
1. Did you ever see the British comedy show Spaced, from Hot Fuzzians Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg/Nick Frost?
If answer is no, then visit this link.
If the answer is yes then:
2. GOD DIDN’T IT RULE PRETTY HARD?
And now follow me here:
3. Oh shit, they want to make an American version?
Okay end of obsessive Anglophiliac blog entry.
David Tennant’s good Doctor gets not one, not two, but three “companions” in upcoming season 4 which we Americanos won’t see until the apocalypse, or sometime later in 2008, whichever comes first and doesn’t end in nuclear holocaust.
David Tennant and Peter Davison. This is the 8 minute Christmas special we stinkin’ Americans never get to see because the BBC doesn’t seem to realize that passionate Whovians live in the States and are dying for even 8 more minutes of the Doctor. Watch it now before the corporate Big Brother jerks yank down the video. BRILLIANT! (Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey.)
Alright, if you don’t know (and this means you are a very bad Anglophile), David Tennant IS Doctor Who (no, I mean really, like in real life too I think) and Jessica Hynes was one of the stars of the now-cult-classic TV show Spaced. Together they make a TV formula rich in nutrients that I will drink down like a hungry baby abandoned in a greasy back alley dumpster.
The Bourdain isn’t the most pleasant of foodie personalities out there. But he’s friggin’ honest. And he’s out there once again bein’ mouthy on the behalf of all us Rachael Ray haters.
I’m not a very ethical guy. I don’t have a lot of principles. But somehow this seems to me over the line. Juvenile diabetes has exploded. Half of Americans don’t have necks. And she’s up their saying, ‘Eat some [...] Dunkin’ Donuts. You look great in that swimsuit Ã¢â‚¬â€œ eat another doughnut! That’s evil.
Bourdain. Call me. You rule. I want to go to Bali with you on one of your televised getaways.
