The Michael Phelps Show [hee!]

Posted in hee!, lists, North Americana on August 18, 2008 by jetsamjr

Posting this for no other reason than I’ve caught Michael Phelps fever, but: TV Squad has an amusingly stupid list about how the world’s greatest Olympian ever could be inserted into various television series.


“Shut up, Gil – close the deal, close the deal!” [The Simpsons]

Posted in lists, North Americana, The Simpsons on August 17, 2008 by jetsamjr

Cracked rates the five most underrated characters in The Simpsons… and for some reason includes Gil, the hapless salesman and perennial loser. I always thought everyone hated Gil? I mean, he has his moments – but he’s kinda just one of those late-entry characters you overlook for a reason.

American faker [sci-fi]

Posted in Battlestar Galactica, lists, North Americana, sci-fi on August 5, 2008 by jetsamjr

io9 rates the best fake American accents in sci-fi; unsurprisingly, Jamie Bamber comes out on top. I will never get over the fact that his Battlestar Galactica voice isn’t the same as his actual voice, never ever ever.


Paris Hilton is a stupid spoiled whore [South Park]

The top 10 South Park celebrity cameos.



Posted in lists, Lost, North Americana, WTF? on June 20, 2008 by jetsamjr

PhotobucketA compilation of the 30 most shocking Lost moments ever; unsurprisingly the mind-blowing reveal at the end of season three tops the list, but there are plenty of other major-league twists I’d forgotten about – remember Ethan? And the polar bears? And the pilot who was killed by the smoke monster? OMG!

Omarosa declared nastiest villain [reality TV]

Posted in lists, North Americana, reality TV on June 18, 2008 by jetsamjr

TV Guide has declared that The Apprentice‘s resident witch Omarosa Manigault-Stallwhatever is reality TV’s all-time nastiest villain. I haven’t seen any of her in Celebrity Apprentice, though I’m still smarting from that incident from the first season where she made out like she’d been clocked on the head with a cinderblock when really it was a tiny clump of plaster, like, shut up, Omarosa.

Strangely, none of Survivor‘s villains made the top 10 – come on, Jerri Manthey is one of the definite hags of reality, right? Instead, the list includes a certain “prat” who I refuse to name -I don’t want to extend his 15 minutes any more than they’ve already been, because I hate him and his troll-faced girlfriend so much.



You must watch Firefly [sci-fi]

Posted in lists, North Americana, sci-fi on June 17, 2008 by jetsamjr

Proving once again that Joss Whedon’s army conquers all, Firefly has topped a list of sci-fi shows you must watch voted for by almost 20,000 couch potatoes. (Battlestar Galactica was the Sci Fi Channel’s pick, fyi.) The other nine shows on the fan-chosen list are:

2. Battlestar Galactica
3. The X-Files
4. Heroes
5. Stargate SG-1
6. Doctor Who
7. Star Trek: The Next Generation
8. Babylon 5
9. Star Trek (the original series)
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Interesting that Lost didn’t make the cut.
