In Netflix’s new animated series DISENCHANTMENT, tough Princess Bean (voiced by Abbi Jacobson) goes on a quest with optimistic elf Elfo (voiced by Nat Faxon) and personal demon Luci (voiced by Eric Andre). This may sound a little like either a Disney feature or a Saturday-morning show, but DISENCHANTED is created by Matt Groening, who brought forth THE SIMPSONS and FUTURAMA, and Josh Weinstein, who has been a writer and producer on the two Groening series. Asked about the family viewing prospects for DINSENCHANTMENT, Weinstein replies, “We’re hoping that the jokes for adults will go over kids’ heads, even though […]Read On »

In SONS OF ANARCHY, now in its fifth season on FX on Tuesdays at 10 PM, nobody has it easy. In creator/executive producer Kurt Sutter’s drama about the members of a motorcycle gang and its members, characters have been beaten, raped, robbed, stabbed, shot, betrayed and murdered. However, arguably nobody still living has been put through more than Katey Sagal’s character Gemma Teller Morrow. Gemma has survived the death of her first husband, only to learn that her second, Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), was responsible for the crime and then beat the hell out of her, but now wants her […]Read On »

Being Planet Express’s efficiency expert, Hermes does a staff evaluation saying he’s going to fire the most useless person on staff. What he discovers is that he should be the one that’s fired. After his firing, […]Read On »

Verrone Network: Comedy Central, Wednesday nights Airdate: June 27, 2012 It was a smart move by the FUTURAMA writers to use this year’s election to do their own sci-fi take on campaigning and how society views on voting for a President just never change. And “Decision 3012” is a smart piece of political satire, even if it isn’t the type of laugh-out-loud funny we come to expect from the show. The concept is simple. The […]Read On »

Now only do they have recurring characters they voice (for LaMarche it’s Kif Kroker, Calculon, Lrrr), they’re always coming up with new voices to fill out the show’s unique universe of science-fictional crazies. “I am one of the utility voice players on the show,” explains LaMarche. “I’m the male Tress MacNeille. She does more voices including one offs and recurring than anyone else on the show. Somebody did a website of how many characters each [voice actor […]Read On »

The episode begins with weird weather patterns and results in Fry inadvertently discovering an ancient “Mayan” temple underneath the earth. What they […]Read On »
