In the event you’ve been out of the country for the past month and just got in today – STARGATE: UNIVERSE HAS MOVED TO TUESDAY NIGHTS!!!
That’s right! The second episode of Stargate: Universe’s second season, Aftermath, airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. on SyFy! I have a feeling that this one is going to be a tad controversial and the boards will be buzzing later tonight. Tune in to find out what all the fuss is about.
I came into the office this morning and walked in on an oft-recurring film conversation between youngsters Lawren (“I love Chris Columbus!”) B. and Ashleigh ( I love Can’t Hardly Wait!”) I. and elder statesman Carl (“I love Annie Hall!”) B. It always begins with Carl expressing shock bordering on hysteria at the other’s lack of cinematic knowledge of any movie made prior to 1985. The fact that Ashleigh had never seen Blazing Saddles seemed to deeply offend Carl, while her admission that she had never watched Animal House almost caused him to stroke out. I was equally outraged to hear she had never seen Planes, Trains and Automobiles, one of the greatest comedies of all time, then almost lost it at Lawren’s insistence that The Great Outdoors was even remotely funny. I found our chat so fascinatingly outrageous that I asked all participants to come up with a list of their top three favorite comedies. They broke down as follows (note: all those taking part let it be known that whittling their list down to a mere three was next to impossible) –
Carl: Annie Hall (his favorite movie of all time), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Animal House.
Ashleigh: Clueless, Ace Ventura Pet Detective, The Princess Bride.
Lawren: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, The Big Lebowski, The Hangover.
Ivon (who came in late to the conversation): Old School, Water Boy, Dumb and Dumber.
Joe: Planes Trains and Automobiles, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Meet the Parents.
And, for what it’s worth, here is my top three list of movies that everyone else thinks are downright hilarious which really (come on!) aren’t: Austin Powers – any movie in the series, Little Miss Sunshine (for the record, Carl wants you all to know that he finds this choice reprehensible), and Superbad.
Agree? Disagree? How do your picks line up with ours?
