kardashiansThanks to Daryl Rasmussen for the guest post.

The Kardashians love drama. I guess that’s why they have a television show. I know most men feel that Kim Karadshian is one of the most beautiful women on the planet, but I am not one of them. She’s pretty, but she’s just not my type. The reason I watch the show is because I have gotten to know all of them through their show and I want to see how everything will play out in their lives. For instance, will Scott stick around and make it as part of the family? I highly doubt it. Many tabloids say he’s a cheater. And this is on a consistent basis. And what about Kim? Will she ever find a permanent romance and someone she can marry? And what’s the deal with the Dash store? Is it a success or a failure? All those are great aspects to the show, but the most appealing aspect to me is Bruce Jenner. No, I don’t mean in a physical way. There is just something about his character that makes you want to watch more of him. It’s like he is the glue that barely holds that family together, and if he makes one false move all hell will break loose. This has happened in the past, so it’s bound to happen again. Keeping Up With The Kardashians is the primary reason I have Free on Demand on satalite tv packages. It’s not the only reason, but its definitely at the top of the list.

The Walking Dead TV SeriesSo, you don’t get AMC on your television?  Sadly, the home of such shows as Mad Men and Rubicon doesn’t air their episodes online… that is until now (and just this once). AMC’s has posted the pilot episode for its newest show The Walking Dead (based on the best ongoing comic currently on the market) online!

The series follows a Sheriff’s deputy, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) who is injured in the line of duty and is put into a coma. When he wakes up, he finds that the world has been overrun by zombies and his family is missing. That is all that I’m going to say, the series is really good. If you have AMC and just missed that episode, than you should watch it online.  If you don’t get AMC I feel your pain, but watch the pilot online and then find a friend that gets AMC. You have to know someone that gets it. Anyhow, you can watch the pilot episode here. The episode will be available online until 9pm pst on November 23rd, 2010. Also, you can head over here to check out the first volume of the graphic novel adapted into a motion comic. I have no idea how they do this, but it is truly outstanding.

Entertainment News from The Pit, Movies, TV, Games, Awesome

Welcome to an all new Pit!

  • J.J. Abrams’ Undercovers are going to have to stay undercover as NBC has put the breaks on the spy drama. The True Lies like series featured a married couple who were retired spies and brought back into the game. This is the second new show that NBC canceled this year, the first being the Jimmy Smits court drama, Outlaws.
  • Conan O’Brien’s new late night show starts this Monday on TBS! His first week of guests include Seth Rogan, Lea Michele, Tom Hanks, Jon Hamm, Michael Cera, Julie Bowen and others, along with musical guests Jack White, Soundgarden, Fistful of Mercy, and Jon Dore.  TBS has revealed that Conan episodes will be posted online the day after they air. Here is hoping that the show takes a big bite out of The Tonight Show.
  • Martin Sheen has been cast as Uncle Ben and Sally Field is in talks to portray Aunt May in Marc Webb’s Spiderman reboot. While on the surface it feels like very weird casting, they might actually be pretty good fits.  Sheen especially, he has the right feel for Uncle Ben. He isn’t as frail as Cliff Robertson, but with how Uncle Ben dies that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The film is really coming together, taking on the role of Peter Parker is Andrew Garfield, who rocked in Social Network, with Emma Stone as Peter’s first love interest Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans rumored to be Curt Connors, aka the Lizard. I really hope that MJ is in the movie, setting her up for future films.
  • The Hollywood Reporter has some really cool concept art from a couple of “lost scenes” from The Goonies. Check out the art here.

A week before his new late night talk show begins on TBS, Conan O’Brien has aired a special Show Zero online! Check out the 4 minute “fastest talk show ever” below…

Our friends over at 141tv have been keeping busy and keeping an eye on new fall shows as they are added online. Here are a few more that you can watch full episodes for…

Raising Hope
A new Fox comedy from Greg Garcia, one of the co-creators of the very funny My Name is Earl, and stars Lucas Neff, Garret Dillahunt, Martha Plimpton, Shannon Woodward, and Cloris Leachman.  In the series, Neff is Jimmy Chance, a young man whose life is going nowhere until a chance romantic encounter with a girl he doesn’t know is a serial killer.  Nine months later he has a kid and she is gone, and it is up to Jimmy and his unique family to raise this baby, Hope. Like My Name is Earl this series features a very dysfunctional family, people who are very lovable characters.  Check out the new episodes here.

No Ordinary Family
I gotta say, I’ve been really enjoying the family superhero dramedy No Ordinary Family.  The series is from Greg Berlanti and Jon Harmon Feldman and airs on ABC. It stars two actors that aren’t strangers to the superhero world, Punisher War Zone‘s Julie Benz and Thing from the Fantastic Four series, Michael Chiklis. Rounding out the family is Jimmy Bennett and Kay Panabaker, with supporting actors that include Autumn Reeser, Romany Malco, and Stephen Collins. The show has a good balance of action and family drama and it is not taking itself too seriously, which helps. So far it has been fun and entertaining. Check out the first five episodes here.

Detroit 1-8-7
This new ABC crime drama is from Jason Richman and stars The Sopranos‘ Michael Imperioli, along with James McDaniel, Aisha Hinds, D.J. Cotrona, and Erin Cummings. The series takes a gritty approach to crime and uses mostly handheld camera. Content wise it reminds my of NYPD Blue.  Regardless of low ratings, it already has been extended to a full season order of episodes and I’m interested to see where they take this series. If you are a big fan of crime shows, you should give Detroit 1-8-7 a chance, you might like it. Check out the last five episodes from the show’s 141tv profile.

Have you been watching Raising Hope, No Ordinary Family, or Detroit 1-8-7? What are your thoughts?

Thanks for the guest post from Kirk Wood.

Ni Hao Kai LanNi Hao Kai Lan is about a little Chinese girl and her animal friends. They solve problems together, and teach children ethics, which is awesome! Kai Lan lives with her Grandpa. Her friends are Rintoo the tiger, LULU the rhinocerous, HOHO the monkey, and Ptoli the Koala Bear. There are also the hula ducks, that show us how to stay calm by swaying side to side. They interact a lot with the ants. The group has helped the ants build bridges (by teaching shapes and colors, and their Mandarin Chinese names), clean up garbage, save energy by using bikes, build a playground (which taught how to be considerate of everyone), and they have all celebrated numerous holidays together. I love how this show teaches children many Mandarin Chinese words and phrases. This show is educational, fun, and musical. Every show Kai Lan and her friends engage the children in singing about what the problem or issue is. They then have a song to teach the child how to deal with it. This show has shown my child how to share, stay calm, deal with anger, not hit, and think of everyone’s feeling, not just your own. This show even reminds adults that they should think of others, and always be kind to people.
