One of the (strangest) trailers before Pirates on Saturday, was for the new Underdog movie. While it appears to be live action, I sat and pondered who’s voice it was, behind the dog, until the end of the trailer. And I proclaimed “It’s Jason Lee!”
I’ve been a fan of Jason’s since I saw him back in Mallrats. The ending scene (on the gameshow) made me laugh more than any other movie I think I’ve ever seen. If you’ve never seen Mallrats, and even if you’re not a fan of Kevin Smith, you should still check out Mallrats.
The Underdog movie opens August 3rd, and is sure to be a big hit with kids, and adults alike. Personally, I was never a fan of the cartoon. But if Jason Lee (My Name Is Earl) is doing a voice, it’ll be worth the price of admission.
It’s that time of year again, when you start to question whether or not your favorite tv shows got renewed. I started scouring the internet yesterday, to see if some of my favorites got dropped. Sadly, the news wasn’t good. Here’s a comprehensive list of shows that were not picked up for the 2007-2008 season:
Veronica Mars – much to the fanboy’s surprise, hottie Veronica will not be saving any more of her friends’ lives.
The Class – one of, I thought, the best new witty shows of last year. Sadly, not everyone agreed.
The Nine – we’ll never know what happened in that bank. To cancel a show like this mid-season was just wrong.
3 lbs – cancelled after one episode. I guess no one cares about brain surgeons anymore.
Jericho – the whole premise of this show seemed weird to me, I never watched it, but apparently there’s a huge uproar from its fans and they’re trying to get the network to renew it.
Drive – rumors say that this show was cancelled halfway through the first episode. The ratings were that poor.
The OC – much to my friend Jake’s demise, no more OC
The Wedding Bells – Seems like this show lasted for twenty seconds. We saw forty-thousand commercials for it, then once it aired, no more commercials.
Vanished – Yet another show that we’ll never know what happened. Apparently, they aired the last four episodes they filmed on MySpace video. I never got around to watching them, and still don’t care who kidnapped the dude’s wife.
Gilmore Girls – sorry Trish. No more Rory and Lorelai Gilmore
Crossing Jordon – finally, I don’t have to see the last three minutes when I switch to NBC, to watch Medium.
The Black Donnellys – I actually liked the first episode of the show. I think it would have made a better mini-series, or even a movie. The TV show just started to drag after the first episode, which is probably why people stopped watching.
7th Heaven – wasn’t this cancelled already? A few years ago? Guess not.
Saved – I gave this show a shot once. It was like ER, without all the good parts.
Deadwood – I’ve never seen this show, because I’m too cheap to pay for HBO. I hear good things though, and will get that boxed set when the price isn’t $6M
One of your favorites get axed, and no tmake the list? Leave it in the comments, and I’ll be sure to add it to the official list.
Wasn’t her time of being famous over years ago? Seriously.
Reports are coming in today, that she’s checked back into rehab. For what? Who knows. Cocaine. Alcohol. Being retarded. I’m sure if we all just started ignoring her, and her antics, she’d go away on her own. Wouldn’t she?
With Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End having recently come out, I decided to dig into the story a bit. To see if there’s any truth to any of this stuff. Surprisingly, Jack Sparrow really did exist. Though his name wasn’t Jack Sparrow, it was Bartholomew Roberts. According to recent reports, the character of Jack Sparrow was based on a real-life pirate of the late 1600s into the early 1700s. Here’s some facts about Bartholomew Roberts:
He was nicknamed Black Bart. However, this nickname wasn’t given to him until after his death.
He is rumored to have taken over 470+ ships, more than any other pirate in history.
He started sailing at the age of 13, in 1695. There is no other record of him, until he resurfaced in 1719.
He became a pirate, because the captain of his ship was killed by pirates. They then elected him to be the new captain. His first act as pirate then, was to track down the pirates who killed his captain, and kill them. (Man, that’s a mouthful)
His crew overtook a ship with 40 cannons on it, and 170 shipmates, similar to the final scene in the new Pirates movie.
He, apparently, was a black man.
He despised drinking while at sea. A trait that Sparrow obviously doesn’t abide by.
The “Dread Pirates Roberts” from The Princess Bride is named after Roberts
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new Pirates flick yet, you should. It’s three hours of pure pirate entertainment.
