POST #1,900!!! Steve's Church-less Movie Of The Week: Special TV Marathon ...

You read that title right. This right here is officially POST # 1,900 on this damn decade old blog! 1,900 posts! Hell yeah, britches!!!

I am reeeaaalllyyy excited right now, not just because I'm almost at two thousand blog post but because I leave early this monday. Gonna catch a train and a plane so I can spend the week in Arizona with my family. I'm pretty darn excited about my upcoming adventure.

So instead of a regular old bad movie movie this weekend, I will instead be gracing you with a veeeeery special treat: it's a massive playlist of two television shows, Cheap Seats and Travel Sick, the two best shows that pretty much NO ONE has seen. They are honestly the two greatest and funniest shows ever on television and the playlist is chock full of almost fourteen whole HOURS of the both of them! It is my freaking AWESOME gift to you all!

Enjoy ...

Yoinked haphazardly from wikipedia and mixed with my own superior knowledge ...

"Cheap Seats with(out) Ron Parker, commonly shortened to Cheap Seats, is a television program broadcast on ESPN Classic hosted by brothers Randy and Jason Sklar. The brothers appear as fictional ESPN tape librarians who amuse themselves by watching old, campy sports broadcasts and wisecracking about them.

Cheap Seats debuted on February 4, 2004, with an episode that showed ESPN sportscaster 'Ron Parker' (played by Michael Showalter and supposedly the intended host for the show) getting buried under a shelf full of tapes, forcing the Sklars to fill in, as they were behind Parker on the 'hosting depth chart' (with Ryan Leaf behind the Sklars, a reference to his overwhelming lack of success in the NFL). Cheap Seats was originally an hour-long program. There were about 10 one hour-long episodes in the first season, all of which were subsequently cut down to fit a 30 minute time slot.

Most of the broadcasts are from ESPN's archives. Among them: Wide World of Sports broadcasts, Professional wrestling, National Spelling Bees, World Series of Poker final tables, Steve Garvey celebrity sporting events. The show was influenced chiefly by Mystery Science Theater 3000 and MTV's Beavis and Butt-head, as the hosts' comment on the material in the style of a peanut gallery. Cheap Seats was shot in New York City (with segments filmed in Los Angeles) and had made use of local comedians as guest stars in its sketches, including Ed Helms of The Daily Show, Michael Showalter of The State and Ian Roberts of The Upright Citizens Brigade. Most of the bit parts were played by stand-up comics whom Jason and Randy met during their years on the road as standup comedians themselves.

Travel Sick was a British hybrid reality comedy and travel television series that originally aired both in England and on Bravo from 2001 to 2002. It was hosted by UK writer and comedian Grub Smith.

Each episode placed Smith in a different region of the world. In each destination, he was asked to complete five undesirable challenges posed by the show's producers. If he failed a challenge, he was forced to perform something unpleasant called a 'forfeit'. The more he failed, the worse the 'forfeit' at the end of the show became. The series has also aired on Comedy Central in the United States."

Please, though, a few rules first. There is absolutely no talking allowed in Steve's Theater and any and all talkers WILL be spiked right in the dadballs. No cell phones or African-American berries in the theater. And absolutely NO TEXTING! I am very serious about that one.

And be sure to dim your headlights (where applicable).

Enjoy the show y'all!
