... in many respects … more satisfying than the source material's recent chapters. … even in this lightweight diversion resides a lesson highlighted by Cartoon Network's animated "Clone Wars" shorts -- namely, that Lucas' fantasy has frequently sailed the smoothest when he takes a back seat and leaves the starship piloting to someone else. …The Chicago Tribune said:
Anyone with a deep fondness for George Lucas’ “Star Wars” films should not miss Sunday’s episode of “Robot Chicken”…The Seattle Post-Intelligencer said:
… Even if you are not a total "Star Wars" fanatic, you will laugh hard at this special. I mean, milk- spraying-out-of-your-nostrils hard. …

It reminded me of Scrubs, for better or worse. Does it get funnier?

Uh, Herc, Comedy Central has cancelled Drawn Together.<p> My problem with Robot Chicken is that too many of the segments were reruns. Granted, they were funny reruns, but still, it was only like 15 minutes of new material, and 4 or 5 of that was the lame Lucas sketch.

...the Star Wars Special is the best thing that Robot Chicken ever made. Not because it's about Star Wars, but because it'S the only RC episode that made me not just laugh loud, but also laugh from the beginning to the end! (Unlike the other episodes, that make me laugh one or two times and that'S it.)

is about as mean-spirited and misanthropic as anything that's currently on television. I feel dirty after watching it, so usually I don't.

The funniest old lady that TV has ever seen. And I'm serious when I say that I hope to read some words about her from Sly Stallone.

Zohan. That movie was so terrible, it negated anything good he ever did. I really wish I could get him on trial for crimes against humanity for the minutes of my life wasted watching that. It was stupid, vulgar for all the wrong reasons, and I can honestly say that I am worse for having seen it. It didn't inspire, it didn't entertain, it didn't make you think. It didn't make you laugh, either. It was just garbage. Pure, unfiltered trash.

29.99$ for the quadrilogy? jesus....and here i thought the 50 or 60$ i spent when it was released was a good deal. as for the simpsons, its been announced recently that season 11 comes this fall, i think it was october.
July 22, 2008, 5:43 p.m. CST
due Oct. 7. should be available for pre-order any day now
July 22, 2008, 7:36 p.m. CST
Fucking bullshit. I wonder if it was the song rights or the Globetrotters copyright? Either way, a stain on an otherwise awesome DVD. Anipals in Vegas makes up for it. Herc, your shiv's a-comin'...

Why isn't it in bold like season 7 of "Smallville"? Everyone knows "Supernatural" is far superior.

Smigel mentions on the commentary that "Globetrotters Christmas" belongs to SNL. It's available on the "Best of Saturday TV Funhouse" DVD.
July 23, 2008, 10:05 a.m. CST
I actually heard that while watching the commentary in the wee hours last night and heaved a sigh of relief. Man, what a weird and wonderful show. I totally flashed back to watching it in bed on Comedy Central when I should have been sleeping.

this week at Best Buy for less than 15 bucks. I hate to whore for an electronics retailer, but they had a wide selection of Adult Swim titles at ten dollars off.
July 24, 2008, 9:09 a.m. CST
AQUA TEEN v5 was regular price! Figures. The one Adult Swim DVD I don't have that I still want.
