Jackson Browne with Sara Watkins
A cool concert. The opener was Sara Watkins, who I really care about (also Sean) but Jackson Browne and everyone sort of collaborated, kinda like the Watkins Family Hour. It was cool, but Jackson Browne songs kinda go on too long for me. Plus, the audience was weird, and once the request floodgates open, they don’t close.

Eugene Mirman - An Evening in a Fake Underground Lab
Comedy! He does all kinds of things, from stand-up to reading off his various internet pranks and things. Kristin Schaal stops by for a minute! Theremin!

Syfy 20th Anniversary Special
2 hours of Syfy/SciFi Channel stars patting themselves on the back. I mean, there are some good shows and stuff once in a while, but to put everything on the channel in the same basket is kind of too much. I think Stargate looks stupid, except for SG:U, Farscape looks kind of awesome, but I don’t know. Battlestar might be OK, but I can’t get into new old shows anymore. I HAVE A LIFE! (not really) Ok, I’m losing my momentum. I’ve already spent too long on this dumb graphic.

Kyle Kinane - Whiskey Icarus 

Funny comedy about all kinds of things. I was bugged by the audience again but that’s just me.

It’s A SpongeBob Christmas!
It’s Christmas, and Plankton has a plan to turn everyone into jerks by feeding them fruitcake with jerktonium in it. He unwittingly gets SpongeBob, who is unaffected by the element, to feed everyone in town, almost ruining Christmas! Luckily, singing his hit song, Don’t Be A Jerk, It’s Christmas, is the antidote! The good thing about this special was that it was done in stop-motion animation, so SpongeBob looks like a real sponge! It looked cool, but I think as a SpongeBob story, it was a little weak in the jokes department.

Chris Hardwick: Mandroid
A stand-up special from this guy. It is mostly funny. The weird part was the audience, who whooped it up any time anything remotely nerdy or nerd-related came up. I get that that is his audience, but it is annoying and these geeks just latch on to stuff and are like, boom!, everything this guy does is gold! It is the same with the guild and wil wheaton and all this crap. But I love it!

Firefly: Browncoats Unite
The long-awaited Firefly 10th Anniversary special. Most of the cast and 2 of the writers sit around a table and reminisce. The missing cast members have little filmed segments. A lot of it was stuff we have heard before, like how it was treated by Fox, how the movie came about, how they are a family and stuff. There was some good stuff involving future episode ideas, Inara’s secret, and some footage from the panel.

Metric - Synthetica: Live At The Ogden Theatre
This was shown on axs.tv and I was excited to see it, but the sound was bad. It seemed like they were just plugged in to the guy on the left’s monitor or something. Eventually I got used to it, and it looked like a good show. Oh, but at the end it was cut off. Guess I should have extended my recording, or, oh, I don’t know, axs could get their stuff together? Naw…

Night of Too Many Stars
The fourth of these benefits for Autism Education. Some funny bits and stuff, some not so funny, but it was fine.

The Greatest Event In Television History
A hilarious little special, chronicling the making of a shot for shot remake of the Simon & Simon opening sequence starring Adam Scott and Jon Hamm. So good. They had Jeff Probst host it, and he did stuff like repeat the same phrases slightly differently. There was a funny thing where Adam Scott never officially met Jon Hamm. Kathryn Hahn was in there too, as a dance teacher. Then they showed the film, and there it was! Luckily, they showed the real thing, which I had never seen. I have never really heard of Simon & Simon, but I guess it was a thing!

Demetri Martin - Standup Comedian.

New comedy from this guy. It was pretty good. I like how he always seems to be coming up with new material, told in different ways.

Emmy Awards

They may have been kinda lame, predictable and just weird, but I was glad for some of the winners and some actually good shows showed up in the clip packages. As for Moderp Famplergh, and other shows that don’t deserve it, Myuerrrggg! When I have my annual Consumpy Awards©, the true deserving winners will be announced!

The Creative Arts Emmys

The Reelz Channel showed this ceremony, liberally edited and kinda pointless. It was good to see some of the categories that get ignored, like animation and whatever category they made up for Children’s Hospital to win. They still had lame jokes for presenters to do and random audience shots, mostly of Silas Weir Mitchell…
