I Love Television 

So here’s my great idea for a horror film: Two teenagers are at summer camp, sneaking off to have sex—OF COURSE. Just when they’re about to take a ride on the wild baloney pony, they hear a rustling in the dark. “Caitlyn, the nosy bitch camp counselor? Is that you?” OH, NO! It’s not Caitlyn! Another rustle… and then… SQUEEEEEEEEE! Oh. False alarm. It’s just a cute squirrel foraging for a nut. Phew! But then… SQUEEEEEEEEE! It’s an army of werewolf zombie vampire mummies—which, c’mon… is pretty terrible! But do you know what’s most terrible? (Pause.) (Pause.) (Pause.) They all have Honey Boo Boo’s FACE!!

SQUEEEEEEEEE!

Wait. Let me amend that. They all have the faces of various TLC celebrities!

SQUEEEEEEEEE!

Sure, there’s Honey Boo-Boo, but there’s also Kate Gosselin (Jon & Kate Plus 8), toddlers wearing tiaras (Toddlers & Tiaras), unattractive polygamists (Sister Wives) and Sarah Palin (Sarah Palin’s Alaska), as well as various hoarders, women who didn’t know they were pregnant, people who eat sandpaper, AND Abby and Brittany—who just because they have two heads on one body doesn’t make them monsters. They’re just different… okay?! YOU’RE the monster!

Anyway… SQUEEEEEEEEE! Right? Wait. On second thought, maybe I won’t have the monsters come in at all, and the movie can just be about hot teens having sex. I’ll make more money that way. Or spend more time in prison? GAHHH! So many decisions! Look, I’ll think about that, and you take a look at the scare-ific shows belching from your TV this week. Such as…

Mockingbird Lane (NBC, Fri Oct. 26, 8 pm). Here’s the pilot episode/reboot of the mid-‘60s sitcom classic The Munsters—which stars Jerry O’Connell (Sliders) as Herman Munster, Eddie Izzard (The Riches) as Grandpa, and Portia De Rossi (Arrested Development and Ellen DeGeneres’ spouse who wears terrible looking slacks) as Lily. If it gets a good response, NBC may pick it up for a full season of episodes—if not, they’ll probably do so anyway and slowly torture it to death like they did with Community, because they are sick, sadistic bastards.

Rise of the Zombies (Syfy, Sat Oct. 27, 9 pm). This TV movie was originally titled Dead Walking—I wonder why they changed it? I mean, other than getting their pants sued off by the creators of The Walking Dead? Anyway! Survivors of yet another zombie plague (Sheesh! Third one this year!) rush around trying to find the scientist who can save them. Starring Danny “Machete” Trejo (SQUEEEEEEEEE!), French “Third Rock from the Sun” Stewart (kinda SQUEEEEEEEEE!), and Levar “Mothereffin’ Reading Rainbow Geordi La Forge” Burton (legitimate SQUEEEEEEEEE!).

The Venture Bros.: A Very Venture Halloween (Adult Swim, Sun Oct. 28, 11:30 pm). The always hilarious Venture Bros. (a brilliant parody of the old Jonny Quest cartoon) return with a spooky-dooky Halloween special, promising a very terrifying situation indeed for Hank, Dean, Dr. Venture and insanely macho bodyguard Brock Samson. There are no further details at this time, so let’s assume Brock will be having sex with someone, only to be interrupted by a knife-wielding, two-headed Abby and Brittany. What? WHY WOULD YOU THINK SOMETHING LIKE THAT? Omigod, you’re a MONSTER.
