This Just In (Or Not) – Community meets G.I. Joe

Community-meets-G.I.-Joe

 

The quirky yet very awesome show Community has done many excellent parodies in its time so far: Call of Duty, alternative realities, 8-bit video games, Dungeons & Dragons, and even Anime (although the actual Anime parts were few a far between). Today they are going for the Holy Grale of pop culture – 80’s cartoons. I don’t know how, and really don’t care but the study group (I know they’re the student council or whatever now, but I’ll always know them as the study group) are becoming one off characters of everybody’s favorite paramilitary group G.I. Joe. People this episode will be ripe with tropes, gags, classic animation and maybe yelling “Yo Joe!” once – I can’t wait. For now though here’s a little something to tide us over, a PSA, another G.I. Joe mainstay that they were known for. Don’t forget though watch Community today at 8pm EST or you’ll miss all the fun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Just In (Or not): R.I.P. one Simpsons character

Simpsons-in-the-crosshares

 

I know it’s October (aka Halloween Time) & they just did their Tree House of Horror episode of the year so these factors don’t count in the statement that’s coming now: the show’s creators are planning to kill off a long time major Simpsons’ character. This hasn’t happen since Maude Flanders (I don’t count Fat Tony or Mona, Homer Simpsons’ Mom, because Mona wasn’t a major character and they just replace Fat Tony with another Fat Tony (same voice actor and everything)), and I’m a little conflicted about that. I mean don’t mind characters dying in fiction especially if they help the overall story (a la the Avengers) but once Maude Flanders bit the dust Ned was never the same. Ned at first was a perfect man with a perfect family, went to church, never swore, the whole nine yards. This severed the purpose of A) fueling Homer’s unjustifiable hate of a perfect neighbor which led to comedy most cases and B) having the audience relate to the Simpsons because we’ve all had our Ned Flanders in our time. Now he’s a judgmental, republican Christian stereo-type that is just a shell of his former self. Ah, but maybe I’m overreacting here, after all they have a lot of characters they could ‘retire’ without destroying what’s left of the Simpsons. Many people have their opinions but for me I think its Old Abe Simpson. He’s close enough to the main cast to have an impact, he’s been showing up in a lot of episodes lately, and the most obvious reason why: he’s old. Seriously he was old in the 1988 on the Tracey Ullman Show when he first appeared; I think it might be time. But hey, I’ve been wrong before so we’ll only know who bought the farm on the day of a very special episode of The Simpsons – til then stay tuned.
