QUAHOG —> SPRINGFIELD

... Whoa, I don't quite know what to make of this. Peter Griffin and the rest of the Family Guy gang will be road-tripping to Springfield for a Family Guy episode set for fall 2014 in what may be the greatest crossover the world has ever seen since Allen Iverson made ankles whimper. The Griffins will buddy up to Homer and the Simpsons, and they'll pair off for some crazy shenanigans. But more importantly, we'll find out which beer is superior: Duff or Pawtucket? (Duff, duh!) The voice cast of The Simpsons will provide the voices for the four-fingered yellow freaks, so this ain't no one-sided stunt, but is this a mash-up that we really want to see? Please tell us in the poll below because we're seriously interested. [Fox via press release and yeah it's a little late but sorry, Comic-Con and stuff!]

poll


BUSINESS TIME

... HBO and NFL Films have extended their partnership to produce more seasons of Hard Knocks, the actually interesting sports documentary following an American football team through training camp. The announcement comes a few weeks before the August 6 premiere of the latest round, which features the Cincinnati Bengals and might end up looking more like Orange Is the New Black than a football documentary based on the team's troubles with the law. [Pro Football Talk]

... The Workaholics crew—Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson—are working on a movie together, with stoner-comedy producers/writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg attached. The film, an action comedy, won't involve their Workaholics characters. Well, I'm going to stand in line for this one right now. [Celebuzz]

... Always-exciting numbers! CBS would like you to know that with DVR, online streaming, and OnDemand stats factored in, more than 20 million people have watched its summer hit Under the Dome, up from the 13 million who watched it on day one. [CBS via press release]

... In case your coat isn't brown enough, there's a Firefly role-playing game in the works for smartphones. [Blastr]

... TV Land has ordered 10 more episodes of The Exes, its comedy starring Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, and Kristen Johnston. [TV Land via press release]

CASTING NEWS

... Arrow has caught its Black Canary. Death Valley's Caity Lotz has landed the juicy role, which will see her become a love interest for Oliver (Stephen Amell). She'll start as a recurring character but should eventually become a series regular. [The Wrap]

... Taryn Manning is staying in prison! The actress has been promoted to series regular on Netflix's fantastic new series Orange Is the New Black, where she plays redneck methhead Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett. Earlier this summer, Netflix renewed OITNB for a second season before the first even aired. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Grey's Anatomy has added two actors to its stable. Hellcats' Heather Hemmens and Being Human's Bobby Campo (he also played the great Yolo in a one-episode bit on Justified) will recur on the ABC soap as a couple that gets involved in a *surprise* medical emergency. They'll appear in the premiere with a chance at sticking around longer than that. [THR]

MUST-SEE TIME WASTER

... Hey guys! You must see this time-waster! It's a gag reel from everyone's favorite comedy Hannibal that was shown at Comic-Con yesterday. My favorite part is when creator Bryan Fuller pranks Mads Mikkelsen by revealing that he actually ate real human flesh! What a joker. [EW]

When I see the Simpsons near the Griffins it makes me think the Simpsons suffer from a rare form of yellow fever I hadn't noticed before.

Feel free to disagree...

Family Guy should have ended after season 3
Simpsons-season 10
Futurama-Season 5 +Bender's Big Score
Tosh.0-Season 2 (afterwards it turned into "America's Grossest Home Videos")
Community-Season 3
Lost-Season 3
Revenge-Season 1
The Office-Season 5
HIMYM-Season 4
Modern Family-Season 3

Those are the current shows I think have/had overstayed their welcome. There's a lot more which should have never seen the light of day to begin with that I could list. Are there any more that I missed?

I think it would have been better for Arrow to develop Laurel's character a bit more and then have her take on the Black Canary role rather than go with Dinah Drake. For one thing, you have Dinah Laurel Lance and her mother Dinah Lance. Now your throwing in another Dinah, it's not that common of a name.
What would have been good is to have it be revealed that Laurel's mother was once a vigilante called Black Canary (Golden Age) before she met Laurel's father and then have Laurel take up the mantle.
This seems to be a pattern with Arrow though. First they made Slade and Deathstroke different characters, now they have kind of split Laurel from Black Canary.

Where was the poll answer "WTF? Memo to Mr. MacFarlane, having Fox cancel two of your shows doesn't mean we want you to try to take over another one!"

Family Guy will suck any remaining humour out of the Simpsons cameos. And it goes without saying it won't be funny. It also won't compare to the epic South Park Cartoon Wars two-parter that included characters from all three shows and was awesome.

South Park cartoon wars episode was indeed great, but nevertheless not authentic. At least the Simpsons and Family Guy bring the actual actor to cameo and not an imposer voice.

*SPOILER, I GUESS (for ORANGE/BLACK)* Bleh. I'm kind of not happy with the Taryn Manning news. Not only do I generally dislike her overall -- although, she did kinda fit the Doggett role perfectly -- but the end of the first season really loses its impact, I think, if Doggett isn't dead. Whatever. After the high quality of the first season, I have no reason yet to think the writers will screw up the second. At least make her completely toothless, otherwise, Chapman's punches would have been sooooooo weak.

OITNB Spoiler:

So Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett is alive?! She's a tough cookie. Piper will have to hit her with something hard next time.

A quick update on the Laurel-and-Black Canary casting news on Arrow: http://www.tvguide.com/News/Exclusive-Arrow-Boss-1068064.aspx

So basically, Lotz is NOT officially announced as being Black Canary/Dinah Lance and that she is possibly going to be involved in / responsible for Cassidy still becoming Black Canary?

Maybe they'll kill off Cassidy, but her mind will somehow enter the body of Lotz and that's how this all works out!

OK, that was helpful. I'm already so confused about what the purpose of Thea "Speedy" Queen is now that they have introduced Roy Harper, that introducing another contender for Black Canary would blow my mind.

I think the Speedy thing was always just going to be a little in-joke, and whenever Roy becomes a....whatever, he'll be Red Arrow or Arsenal.

Thea is also a sort of reference/homage to Mia Dearden, the second Speedy. They even made Thea's middle name Dearden.
I agree that Roy will likely skip to Red Arrow or Arsenal rather than Speedy, unless Thea dies and Roy takes the name in her honor.

The Orange is the New Black praise has reached Orphan Black levels. Now I can't decide which one to watch first.

skip both. or at least no rush. neither had the immediate draw I expect from shows anymore, in order to gain my attendance to their showings on a regular basis. especially after all of the hype orphan black got, it couldn't hold my interest past the first 15 minutes. and orange I hyped myself based on weeds and was just generally dissapointed.

rectify was good if you didn't start that one.

Orphan black couldn't hold your interest past the first 15 minutes? I couldn't wait for the next episode.

I suggest watching Orphan Black first then Orange/Black. That's the order we (all of us who have fallen in love with both shows) have seen them. Be one of us. =)

As someone who loves both, I say... ummm... yikes, this is much harder than I thought... uhhhh...

I like Orphan Black (Soccer Mom rules!), but I love OINTB. I would suggest a trip to a women's prison as the first course and clone wars as the main one.

Some might say that's a first world problem. However, it's still a massive problem. Sorry, but I don't have any solutions to your dilemma.

I have all 4 episodes on my DVR but haven't watched yet. I know this site reviewed the first episode and loved it, and then said the second episode really dropped in quality. Has it gotten better or it it just not worth it? Based on your comment I'm assuming the latter...
Reply

I think there have been reviews here for every episode, so if you'd like, you can search for those and get more opinions. Personally, I think it kept getting worse and is really crappy now. The pilot was the only decent episode for me. Mostly, it's the characters that really suck. But, like with any and everything, it depends on your tastes.

WooHOO! Laurel isn't going to be Black Canary. Thank goodness, because Laurel is a horrible character. They have zero chemistry. Now all they need to do is kill her off.

So Laurel isn't Black Canary after all?I wonder why they specify that her first name is Dinah then.

So....Laurel isn't BC in this version? Well....ok. Katie and Steven don't have much chemistry (well, Steven does ok, but that guy seems to pair with everyone on the show pretty well) so maybe this is a good thing. Besides, that young lady looks a LOT like BC should look to us comic fans.

I'm very confused. I thought that Laurel was eventually supposed to become Black Canary. I mean her name is Dinah Laurel Lance...

And Alex Kingston played her mother also named Dinah Lance, as in the comics.

So an icon animated sitcom is going to crossover with a show, whose quality petered (Lol) out relatively quickly; a show that it has in the past taken (warranted) shots at for being decidedly plagiaristic. I'd like to say this is baffling, but really, I completely understand it. That said, even if these series have gone downhill as accused, the Simpsons still has a decade of golden comedy to fall back on; a legacy, if you will, and it has yet to sink to the foul, hateful depths that Family Guy has. The Simpsons will always be the clear winner.

Unless she plays a ghost, hallucination, etc. Or appears solely in flashbacks.
