Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see facts about Mrs. Doubtfire.

The Final Countdown: Kid Games, Emily Kinney and Hatred

Published by under Final Countdown

mouse trap

Go here to see six kid games that adults took to ridiculous extremes.

“At some point, age catches up to most of us and we realize that other people’s genitals are way more interesting than tag or Monopoly. Notice we said “most of us.” Some folks reject the whole notion of “grown up” priorities and instead dedicate their adult lives to monumental, insane versions of children’s games that rival all but the most impressive and beatific of genitals.”

The Final Countdown: HBO Cast Photos, Familiar TV Comedy, and Legend of Korra Game

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see ranking the best HBO cast photos.

Boardwalk Empire’s law-breaking run ends this Sunday, which means we can’t look forward to any more gorgeous promotional photos from the 1930s-set series. HBO always does a great job with these. I’ll cop to owning a poster of the Six Feet Underpicture above. Just look at the flowers, Lizzie, er, Nate. Here’s a ranking, from worst to best, of HBO cast photos. Some shows, like Game of Thrones and The Wire, weren’t included because there aren’t any cast-wide photos.”

The Final Countdown: Walking Dead Fixes, Walking Dead Bachelors and Call of Duty Upgrades

Published by under Final Countdown

walking dead11

Go here to see how to fix The Walking Dead.

“While a spinoff of the highly successful series The Walking Dead has been rumored for years, it was finally confirmed when AMC recently ordered a pilot. Though the creators have released some vague tidbits on the cast of characters, they’ve been tight-lipped on the location, only stating that, while this series will be in the same post-apocalyptic universe (no way!), it will not be set in the same state as the companion series, which takes place in the most soul-crushingly boring part of Georgia imaginable.”

The Final Countdown: American Horror Story, Flash Costumes and Destiny Social Skills

Published by under Final Countdown

wtf moments

Go here to see the most WTF moments of the new American Horror Story.

“The highly anticipated premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show finally aired last night with “Monsters Among Us” to much hype and fanfare, that — as I mentioned yesterday — ultimately paid off in the end, no matter how determined Ryan Murphy was to burn us out with endless teasers. From a cinematographic standpoint, the series is beautifully and artfully shot, and does an excellent job of capturing the era it’s set in. But who cares about that, because TERRIFYING CLOWN KILLER. And two-headed Sarah Paulson!”

Go here to see hilarious, embarrassing celebrity audition stories.

“I don’t get starstruck. I’m fine. Especially Ben [Affleck]—he’s a Boston guy; I should be fine. I walked in, and I’m walking down the halls looking for this room, and as I passed a room I heard, ‘There he is.’ In my head I was like, ‘That’s Ben.’ I turned around and it was, and for some reason I instantly was nervous.”

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see movie details that are bs.

The Final Countdown: Supporting Characters, She’s All That and Netflix Usage

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see supporting characters who deserve their own movie.

“Anyway, the feeling I was talking about is that peculiar moment when you realize that a cool character in a film isn’t getting their due. Sometimes, these annoying occasions of wasted potential are because the movie plain sucks. Other times, it’s the other way around, and we only get a glimpse at the full glory of these characters because the film is so jam-packed with other awesome stuff.”
