Adult Swim is the home of strange TV. Mike Tyson Mysteries, fake scripted infomercials, Childrens Hospital and its many spinoffs, and now the instant classic Too Many Cooks. The video is only eleven minutes long, and a must-watch for those who miss, or hate, the cheesy intro credits from the 70s and 80s.
Warning: this is disturbingly not for children, or those who get confused easily.
The post ‘Too Many Cooks’ is trippy TV appeared first on Sound On Sight.

Baby P: The Untold Story | Intruders | Childrens Hospital: The Chaplains | Grantchester | 24 Hours in Police Custody | Wizards vs Aliens | Glue | Atp Tennis: Paris Masters
Baby P was Peter Connelly, a 17-month-old child who died in 2007 from injuries inflicted over a sustained period by his mother, his mothers boyfriend, and his mothers boyfriends brother, all of whom were subsequently jailed. Their cruelty was abetted by the apparent ineptitude of local authorities, which failed to intervene at several junctures. This documentary wonders if the blame was correctly apportioned. Among those interviewed are the social workers assigned to the case and Ed Balls, then childrens secretary. Andrew Mueller

How did you get the part?
Well, I’d been saving up a lot of money. So I just liquidated everything, brought it to (exec producer) David Caspe’s house, left it at his front door and said, “I’d love for you to consider me as the part of Jake.” Long story short, I got the offer a day later.
What do you have in common with Jake?
I like chicken. But he likes white meat; I like dark meat. It’s a challenge, but I’ve gotten some coaches to come on set to get me into kind of a white meat frame of mind. Oh, and he snores. I can’t imagine that I snore. I haven’t asked my wife. »

Still, despite a lack of Academy Award winners (and one polarizing reality TV star), Marry Me still packs quite the comedic punch. Starring Happy Endings’ Wilson and Childrens Hospital’s Marino as odd couple Annie and Jake, »
When a teenage Jessica Day flipped through her high school yearbook, little did she know that one of those pages featured her unlikely future stepmother: This week’s New Girl (Fox, Tuesday at 9/8c) introduces Ashley, the young new fiancée of Jess’ dad, Bob.
Pros: Ashley is played by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olson, who’ll be back for more episodes later in the season. Cons: Ashley is Jess and Cece’s high school nemesis… though she doesn’t remember it that way.

Like far-reaching ripples made by a stone plopped in a still pond, three shots in Dallas changed the course of America’s history on November 22nd, 1963. The assassination of President Kennedy has been debated and analyzed for decades, but in Stephen King’s novel, 11/22/63, one man has the chance to erase it from history in a time-bending journey that’s now being adapted into a new series for Hulu.
An upcoming Hulu original series, the adaptation of 11/22/63 will be executive produced by Stephen King, J. J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, and Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), who will also script the project. J. J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television are backing the adaptation, which is being developed as a nine-hour event series. We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. In the meantime, we have the official press release with full details (via TV by »

When a best man is Jess’ best bet for wedding nookie, the New Girl heroine breaks out the sex fist and goes after what she wants.
I promise, the Fox comedy’s Season 4 opener isn’t as dirty as it sounds, even though Jessica Biel spends most of the episode slinking around a dance floor, and Nick and Schmidt have a protracted discussion about whether or not to engage in a four-way with two bridesmaids.
Okay… maybe it is as dirty as it sounds. If you watched, we want to hear your thoughts in a minute. But first, read on »
The fledgling format, which seemed full of potential only a year ago, is in decline, because it cannot compete with the big guns of online television
Last December I rounded up the 10 best web series of 2013, showcasing some of the most click-worthy offerings from the still-fledgling online medium. The final list covered everything from a big-budget sci-fi starring Harvey Keitel to a series of three-minute skits about one night stands.
As brand new shows found audiences online, established web series had already proved the viability of the medium as a career launchpad: Broad City, a New York-based comedy about best friends Ilana and Abbi, was picked up by Comedy Central; Childrens Hospital, a kind of nightmarish Scrubs, is now shown on Adult Swim; and Burning Love, a Ben Stiller spoof of The Bachelor, won an Emmy. They all began as online series, in the wild west web, where anything goes. »

Boardwalk Empire begins in 1920. Its lead character, Nucky Thompson, is on top of the world. History is bending in his direction. He has established an elaborate criminal conspiracy that will funnel an addictive drug (alcohol) directly into the mouths of its consumers (most of America), all of it untaxed. What could go wrong?
Boardwalk Empire began in 2010. Its network, HBO, was on top of the world. It was coming off a decade which you could, with only a bit of hyperbole, referred to as the HBO decade. The Sopranos redefined what television could be; so did Sex and the City, »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties. The two guest acting awards on the drama side »
