I hope everyone has enjoyed all the Frasier material this week. This marks the end of that period of timneenan.com, because I finally got around to uploading this clip.
This is straight up my favorite scene in all of sitcomdom. It makes me spit out my Coke and Cheetos and slap my desk repeatedly. When the world finally makes the switch to LCD tombstones, I want the slow zoom on Niles and “murder” to loop on mine for eternity.
I redid the New Money website, including finally getting our very extensive sketch archive to actually work. Get lost in sketches about butts and wormholes to other dimensions.
This is something I would have hoped was true and now I know it is.
Would you like a PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN?
This is what a masterscript looks like for a New Money show.
original sketch show, do not steal
Big Brother Jake, starring Jake from the Body By Jake infomercials, on The Family Channel
Conrad Bloom, just some show I watched about some dude, on NBC
Brotherly Love, the Lawrence Brothers sitcom, on NBC
Cavemen, a show about the GEICO cavemen, on ABC.
It’s Like, You Know…, with Jennifer Grey as herself, constantly referencing her real life nose job, on ABC
The Torkelsons/Almost Home, a show with two different titles and premises between it’s two seasons. I know it from syndication on Disney. The original network didn’t make it into my mental partition for The Torkelsons.
In 1968 Grammer met Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel heir Ben Novack, Jr. at the Pine Crest School, and they remained friends for forty years until Novack was murdered by his wife, Narcy Novack, as documented in The Prince of Paradise: The True Story of a Hotel Heir, His Seductive Wife, and a Ruthless Murder by John Glatt.
Many of Grammer’s family and close friends were killed in violent or accidental manners. In 1968, his father, whom he had seen only twice since his parents’ divorce, was shot dead, while in 1975, his younger sister, Karen, was abducted, raped, and murdered by spree killer Freddie Glenn. In 1980, his twin half-brothers died in a scuba diving accident; and David Angell, close friend and producer of Frasier, died in the 9/11 attacks.
In which Jaime required coffee in order to sit through the wedding vows. [x]
and he has two hands
Hahahaha this is incredible.
Community has never prided itself on romance - or on being one genre for more than one episode at a time - but the constant wasted opportunities and neglect for Jeff Winger and Annie Edison have tested those shippers’ last nerve. Given that Community would much rather keep teasing and reviving the much less popular Jeff/Britta pairing - complete with a half-hearted wedding proposal leading up to the possible series finale - it is quite alienating and baffling to a rather vocal part of an already small audience. Community is a show that could have benefited quite a lot from a Jeff/Annie relationship, both creatively and commercially. Yet Dan Harmon’s missteps and downright cowardice on this front are the direct opposite of what Michael Schur and his writers keep accomplishing a half-hour later. It’s no wonder that Parks and Recreation is up to seven seasons and may get to craft a real ending in advance, while Community crosses its fingers again for its long, satirically promised sixth season - a.k.a. another chance to disappoint all its shippers.”

Well, great. Now I want to stop watching one of my favorite shows because it’s the Safest Show Left For Shippers.
The internet wasn’t worth it.
