By the time this posts, I’ll be en route to San Diego for Comic-Con. I’m both excited and a bit stressed—there’s just so much going on and there’s not enough time (and it’s completely impossible) to do everything. But what I’m really looking forward to is meeting the cast of Breaking Bad—I won a ticket to the fan celebration event on Sunday afternoon! 🙂 But enough about my trip—TV doesn’t stop for Comic-Con. Tonight, there’s a lot on, and we’ve got some suggestions for you to check out.
I have been excited for tonight’s episode of Futurama ever since one of the writers tweeted about it last fall. Every season, the series has one anthology episode comprised of a trio of short stories. One of my favorite episodes of Futurama was one of these anthology episodes, which featured 80’s video game characters. Tonight’s episode, “Saturday Morning Fun Pit,” finds the Planet Express crew starring in three different styles of 1980s Saturday-morning cartoons—Scooby-Doo, G.I. Joe, and Strawberry Shortcake. Being someone who watched a lot of 80s cartoons growing up, I can’t wait to see this parody/homage. I can’t believe we only have a few episodes left of the series!
See your favorites from the 80s tonight on Comedy Central at 10/9c.
I’ll also be recording Big Brother, Camp, MasterChef, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, The Bridge, Franklin & Bash, and Royal Pains.
