The first draft of that steamed hams script from ‘The Simpsons’ was excellent too

TwitterFacebook

So, the steamed hams skit in The Simpsons’ “22 Short Films About Springfield” is a pretty hot meme right now.

Or this guy who hasn’t seen The Simpsons before, so he improvises the whole scene in one take. Read more…

Dating show promotes openly sexist dude, and like, read the damn room

TwitterFacebook

If you lived under a rock during 2017 (can I come too?), it was a year in which various sexual harassers were outed for being awful.

It was a year that the conversation around harassment, power and abuse started to be taken seriously, but it seems like Australian television station Channel Nine — who had its own problems recently, missed the memo.

The premise is somewhat the same as previous iterations of the series, but this time it’s an entire busload of “soft tourists,” who find themselves running into trouble with the frightening Mick Taylor (played by John Jarratt) in the middle of the country’s outback. Read more…
