Apparently Even Preschoolers Watch ‘True Blood’ And We Still Don’t

And apparently three-year olds can’t be exposed to breasts but they can watch a parody of a show that is ostensibly an excuse for soft-core porn.  I guess this spoof of True Blood is one of those segments that’s really for the adults, because it’s be a sad state of affairs if today’s parents let their kids see Stephen Moyer’s penis, but not the suggestion of Katy Perry’s cleavage.

To be fair, this follows in the proud tradition of Sesame Street’s 30 Rock and Mad Men parodies, two series that are also NSFC.  And they really captured Anna Paquin’s essence.

(what a few days for Sesame Street, ehhh?)

Happy Birthday, Jim Henson!

He would have been 74 years young today.  Wonder what it he would have thought of all this hoopla over Katy Perry’s breasts.  My guess is he wouldn’t have objected.  It’s a shame it has to mar his day.

(sidenote: never thought I’d be able to tag a post with “Jim Henson” and “breasts.”  Just goes to show that anything is possible).

NBC Thursday Night: Respect Your Friends, Respect your Coworkers, Respect Your Lovers, Respect Your Characters, Respect Your Viewers

Yesterday we gave our brief thoughts on the then impending return of the NBC Thursday night comedies, reflecting on the last season while looking forward to the next.  And on the morning after, how do we feel?   Impressed, pleased and disappointed, in that order.  With the night going from Community to 30 Rock to The Office, we found that the first continues to improve, the second is showing encouraging signs of life, and the third is still struggling to return to its glory days.  Taken has a whole, it was a good night, and two out of three ain’t bad.  But really, we don’t want “ain’t bad.”  We want great, we want three out of three.  And, unfortunately, that just didn’t happen.

Continue: We will follow Community down a long, dark alley…
