In case you missed it the Golden Globes held their annual bash last night and gave out some pretty golden statues at the same time trying to get every star in Hollywood drunk on cheap hooch. You can find a list of winners and nominees here, but for the purposes of this post we’ll be focusing on host Ricky Gervais whose entire night has been cut down to less than ten minutes. Take a look.

Admit it, you liked Balki and Larry…though maybe not as much as these guys did. It takes quite a bit of love to do something like this recreation of Perfect Strangers show intro. Check out this comparison of the fan-made version with the original. Nicely done.

If you’re a MythBusters fan (and if you’re not, what’s wrong with you?), you might want to check out the following video of Adam Savage sharing his failures to a captive audience. Take a look.

In case you missed it (or were joyfully watching Chuck instead) The Simpsons celebrated a milestone last night and Morgan Spurlock took a look back of the town of Springfield, its stars, creators and inhabitants, in this documentary.

Just a friendly reminder that the third season of Chuck begins tonight with a pair of episodes before returning to its regular spot tomorrow on Monday nights. To help get you in the mood here’s Jeffster performing “Mr. Roboto” from last season’s finale guest-starring Chevy Chase and Scott Bakula.

David Tennant is gone. Despite the schmaltzy over-long ending of “The End of Time Part 2” (did Peter Jackson direct the final half-hour?) I must say I was relatively happy with the manor Tennant’s Doctor said goodbye (though a few less tears and whining would have been nice – did Bryan Singer direct these segments?). But we’ve now got a new Doctor to discuss. Here’s the trailer for the first season of Matt Smith at The Doctor.

*Note – If you watch until the end you’ll see they have indeed decided to go with a new Doctor Who logo for the new season.

David Tennant’s song is ending, very soon now. Okay, there are spoilers a plenty here (you have been warned!), but here are the final moments to Doctor WhoThe End of Time Part 1.” Can we really wait a week for Part 2?

Oh Silk Stalkings. For those who don’t remember the 90’s USA Network show, it centered on two Palm Beach detectives and best friends (Mitzi Kaptue and Rob Estes) who affectionately referred to each other as Sam as they attempted to solve the steamier homicide cases every week.

For a low-budget procedural (and despite it’s odd style) the show had quite a bit going for it. It was the female partner who was given the narration in each episode, it was one of the few shows based on a truly loving but platonic relationship (at least until season five), included supporting characters on both the right (Ben Vereen, Charlie Brill) and wrong side of the law (Dennis Paladino, John Byner), constantly used the metaphor of golf for sex, and included as much late-night cable sexuality as the network could squeeze into each episode.

The first four seasons are worthwhile (before the show jumped the shark on Rita and Sam’s relationship and then replaced them with other actors), the first three of which are now available on Hulu. I’ll admit it’s a bit of a guilty pleasure, but it still makes for some fun late night viewing.

So the past week I’ve been catching up on my It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and I have to say I’ve been pretty happy with this season which has included Kitten Mittens, Mac beaning a bicyclist in the head with a beer bottle, Charlie’s inability to pronounce the word “philanthropist,” and the foolproof D.E.N.N.I.S. system for banging women. While we don’t endorse his unique philosophy, we can’t help but chuckle and idly wonder (at least a little) if it doesn’t include a small kernel of truth.
