It’s been a long drought between Doctor Who episodes. Albeit, part of that’s been anticipation and build-up for the landmark 50th anniversary episode of the show, but seriously, it’s been a while since we’ve seen a new adventure featuring our favorite Time Lord, or any of his variations. So to get the hype going for the November 23 worldwide launch of “The Day of The Doctor,” the BBC is releasing not one, but two, Doctor Who minisodes to wet your appetite for the big show. (more…)
Welcome to The BastardCast Halloween Outhouse of Horrors episode!
On the show we’ve got Brad McHargue from Dread Central, Chris Cummins from Topless Robot/Geekadelphia/HibernationSickness.com, Matthew Jackson from Blastr, and your hosts, Jeremy R! Hudson and Jason Tabrys! (more…)
Your favorite toys are returning for a new adventure, and you don’t even have to leave your (bad dream) house to enjoy it. ABC, Disney and Pixar are bringing the gang from Toy Story to TV in the special Toy Story of TERROR! and it looks like it promises the same mix of humor, charm and heartfelt emotion that made the three Toy Story movies very, and repeatedly, enjoyable.
The below clip comes from TV Guide and it offers a hint as to the special’s storyline and some of the toy characters who play a part in the spine-tingling tale. Not to spoil anything, but it involves a missing Potato-Head, some dinosaur drama, some mysterious goo, and some wise (not to mention meta) words of advise from Mr. Pricklepants.
But why take my word for it, let’s role the clip below:
Toy Story of Terror will air on ABC on October 16, and rerun on ABC Family on October 19.

This week on The Bastardcast, Jason and Jeremy come together to celebrate the show’s one year anniversary while still managing to talk about Star Trek Into Darkness, Chris Nolan’s Bat-Bond, Doctor Who, and the art of Bea Arthur’s pricey yet magical mams.
Also on the show, the fellas discuss the tale of the tape for a fight between Whovians and Star Wars fans, Pac Rim‘s 70 minute orgasm delivery system, Schwarzenegger’s toxic new roll (that was a lazy description but I’m still drunk from the Anniversary Party), the Office finale, the atrocity that is Pac Rim mock-off Atlantic Rim, that Ludicris seal of approval, and the death of the friggin terrible Zombieland TV show that died because we’re all awful to awful things or something.
You need more, don’t you? Fine! This is one fat friggin taco of a show! You wanna hear about Rob Liefeld‘s new Kickstarter (which is, for the record, NOT called “The Adventures of Tiny Foot and Titbutt”)? How about Canadian Jesus and the Jimmy Olsen AIDS Initiative? You got it! How about another nail in Nintendo‘s coffin, the Disney black-market where handi-capes are making a killing, and the saga of a 10 foot Robocop and his pending siege on the city of Detroit? Sure!
Is that enough freaking show for you? No?!?! SCREW YOU, we’ve got all that and an a cavalcade of easter eggs from the show’s rich (LIE) history, a never-before-shared story about the time the boys tried to interview a pornstar, AND a bunch of shitty impressions. If you want more, I suggest you go mount a unicorn named Bo Jackson and ride off to the magical kingdom of fairytales and superior podcasts where Leslie Nielsen is still alive, the 3 titted chick from Total Recall is mayor, and Simon and Simon is still on the air. All of that, plus, a song about blowjobs on THE BASTARDCAST!
The Bastardcast: Hell yeah, we’re giggle dealers and proud men with tits and opinions.
Now I know you saw the headline and got excited, but before you nerd-based mind explodes with the possibilities of a former companion or a Doctor’s return announcement for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, beware that these are seemingly new characters to the series. So who do we’ve got?
First up is Ken Bones who’s playing a character known simply as The General. Bones is a familiar face to British TV having appeared recently on the series Upstairs Downstairs and The Hours. He’s also had roles in Wing Commander and Troy.
Also set to appear in the special is Orlando James who’ll be playing Lord Bentham. Jones is a relatively new actor having had some success in British theater, his appearance on Doctor Who will be his first TV role.
Finally, actor Marshall Griffin has also been cast in an unnamed part, at least according his people. Griffin recently appeared in the British Being Human and in the film World of the Dead: The Zombie Diaries.
So what do you think that means? Well “The General” and “Lord Bentham” are pretty generic names, does it suggest that we’ll be getting some appearances from The Doctor’s fellow Time Lords in the special, because those names sound pretty Gallifreyan to me.
More news as it develops.
Back in October of 2010, Kevin Smith teamed with video-on-demand service EpixHD for Kevin Smith: Too Fat For 40, the fourth installment in his live Q&A recordings. In Too Fat Kevin answered one question, a question that turned into a near two hour story on everything from the much publicized “Too Fat to Fly” incident to the highs and lows of Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Cop Out.
Well, Kevin has teamed up with Epix once again for Kevin Smith Burn in Hell. In the hour and a half special, recorded live at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, Smith conducts a riotous and outrageous Q&A session about the aftermath of his latest film, Red State. Topics include his mishaps and misadventures such as drawing the ire of the entire movie blogger community at the Sundance Film Festival and being followed around the country by the highly devout, and highly angered, Phelps Family.
The original comedy event premieres February 11 on the EPIX premium network. We actually have an exclusive clip from the special. In the clip Kevin answers the age old question ” Do women find Smith sexually attractive?” Kevin goes straight into his own brand of classy answers. Check it out:
I’ve seen Kevin quite a few times and it never gets old. I am so amazed at how this guy never shuts up, no joke. He can talk about everything and everything and turn a one word response into a 20 minute story. Unbelieveable. But the guy is definately interesting to listen to. Burn in Hell sounds like another trip and a half.
