The Simpsons: Among The Funniest Cartoons

#1 The Simpsons

The Simpsons is a classic in more than one way, so it’s definitely a must-watch for anyone who wants to spice up their cartoon-watching experience with some satire. This legendary show managed to acquire a loyal following over the years, something that would explain its impressive run. If you happen to really like the series, it’s all for the best: you’ll have so many episodes to watch you’ll fill up your queue for months to come.

#2 Phineas and Ferb

This is one of Disney’s newer shows which recently ended. Phineas and Ferb is a great family watch, especially during summertime. Why? Because the story centers around two brothers who get so bored during their summer break that they start coming up with a ton of loony inventions. These inventions vary from rollercoasters to time machines, to spaceships, or to opening a car wash. You’re really guaranteed to never get bored while watching Phineas and Ferb. Did we mention the secret agent platypus?

#3 South Park

South Park is already well-established as one of the funniest cartoons of all time, so it almost needs to introduction. However, it’s on the complete opposite spectrum of the aforementioned show as it’s full of adult and inappropriate humor. But, hey, people wouldn’t love South Park so much if it weren’t for the fact that it displays a group of kids swearing like sailors and pushing the limits of decency. Just like The Simpsons, the show has a very long run, so you can safely watch it for months to come.

#4 Gravity Falls

The past few years have seen an increase in quality animations and gave us some of the funniest cartoons of all time. Gravity Falls is one of them and if you keep hearing about it everywhere you go, believe us when we say that it’s for a very good reason. The cartoon is all about the adventures of Dipper Pines and Mabel, his twin sister, during their summer vacation in the town of Gravity Falls, Oregon.

#5 Tom and Jerry

Old, but gold. This is the definition of Hanna Barbera’s legendary series about the ridiculous conflict raging between the iconic cat and mouse of the show. Tom and Jerry was, at its time, one of the funniest cartoons on air and it continues to be impressive up to this day. It’s pure slapstick humor, but the fact that it has to work with actions alone and no words means that a lot more effort was put into its creation.

#6 Honorable Mentions

This list isn’t intended as a competition, mostly because all of these shows are so strongly linked together. But if you’re looking to expand your collection of funniest cartoons, you can also reach out for:

  • Spongebob;
  • Looney Tunes;
  • Adventure Time;
  • Regular Show;
  • Futurama;
  • American Dad;
  • The Flinstones.

Conclusion

Naturally, it’s all about taste, but all of these cartoons are unique enough to be able to cater to a variety of needs. Whether they’re for children, entire families, adults only, or whether they’re about adventures, social satire, or sea creatures, they’re the funniest cartoons of our time. They’ll get a smile out of ya.

Game of Thrones Season 6 – What To Expect

With only a few days now standing between us and the premiere of the sixth season of Game of Thrones, there more reasons we have to be excited about it. The TV show has officially surpassed George R.R. Martin’s books and is headed in a direction that’s unknown to both readers and viewers. Needless to say, this, along with the fact that actors and producers alike teased that Game of Thrones season 6 might be their best and most massive one yet, has millions of fans on the edge of their seats.

The Red Band trailer for the new season bagged in the most views of any of the show’s trailers so far. Viewers are, obviously, incredibly curious to see what will happen, especially because “predictability” is a foreign word to the Game of Thrones universe. So, even though technically we’re all in the dark about what lies ahead of the series, there are still some things that we are very likely going to see.

Also, a spoiler alert is due. Make sure you’re all caught up with the show first and have read all the books up to the last. We will not be spoiling the show, but there are some hidden gems in the novels you might not want to know in case they ever come to the screen.

Book Arcs

There may not be a sixth book to be translated onto the small screens, but there are still passages and storylines from the fourth and fifth books that have yet to be explored. Lady Stoneheart, Victarion Greyjoy, and Quentin Doran are all names familiar to book readers who have been awaiting their materialization into Game of Thrones quite eagerly.

While the possibility of seeing the vengeful resurrected Catelyn Stark is, admittedly, pretty small, the likelihood of seeing on-screen appearances of Balon Greyjoy’s brothers is not very possible. Euron and Victarion Greyjoy’s quest for the horn Dragonbinder would make for a truly thrilling addition to the story and a massive complication for Daenerys.

Huge Dragons

The show’s producers have built a colossal fire-breathing crane for Drogon. The reason for this is because Daenerys’ dragons are going to grow, even more, doubling the size they were in season five. While this definitely causes plenty of problems for the visual effects team, it’s going to give millions of fans goosebumps.

Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal have been growing since they first hatched at the end of season one, gradually causing more trouble and wrecking havoc in their wake. Can you imagine what they’d be capable of with their current size? It seems like, after a long time, the three dragons are about to turn into the proper war machines that make all of Westeros tremble.

The Biggest Battle In The Show’s History

Producer Bryan Cogman teased in an interview that this season would depict the most monumental battle that the show has ever seen. And judging by leaked spoilers, set photos, trailer scenes, and pieces of scripts, this is certainly going to be true. One thing we were assured of is that no White Walkers were involved. The battle takes place predominantly in the North, so we can be almost sure that the conflict will be over Winterfell and the title of Warden of the North. If that means justice against the abhorrent Boltons, this might just turn out to be the most incredible episode of the whole series.

The climatic battle is going to be allegedly featured in the ninth episode, a number that we all know represents mind-blowing episodes packed with shocks and twists. Miguel Sapochnik, the man who directed the highly acclaimed Hardhome, which is considered by many to be the best episode in the whole show, apparently directed this episode too. Excited yet? We sure are!

Tyrion’s Storyline

Now that Daenerys is held up by the Dothraki, who found her at the end of season five, the task of ruling over Meereen has been entrusted to Tyrion and Varys. We’ll be, undoubtedly, seeing more of this and we’d be lying if we said we’re not excited.

Tyrion proved himself fantastic in positions of power, but even someone like him is going to have trouble trying to keep under control a city torn by a civil war. And we’re not even counting the bigger problems that Ser Barristan, the one entrusted in the books to rule Meereen, had to face in A Dance with Dragons.

Other Exciting Character Plotlines

After being absent for the entirety of season five, Bran is also going to make a return that seems incredibly promising. Starting with the fact that it seems like his training is done, fans were also awed to see him standing in promos and also visited by no other than the Night’s King.

On the red carpet premiere, Iwan Rheon also teased that Ramsay Bolton would have to face his father’s fury after the escape of Sansa and Theon. Speaking of which, we’ll definitely see their storyline as fugitives play out too.

By the looks of it, Cersei will be out on a murder spree against the High Sparrow and his freakish cult too. When two villains clash, all we can do is enjoy our popcorn and be glad for whoever comes out on top.

Jon’s Resurrection?

You had to know this was coming. Jon Snow wasn’t the first major character to be offed the show, as proven by his father and brother. However, his death seemed like the least definitive of all. He managed to kill a White Walker, he caught the eye of the Night’s King, the stage was set for a climatic confrontation – his story can’t possibly end here, can it?

Well, at this point, pretty much everybody is sure that this isn’t the last we’ll be seeing of Kit Harrington in Game of Thrones. Jon Snow may be dead, but what’s there to say of Jon Targaryen, as the popular R+L=J theory suggests? Or maybe Jon Stark? Even if this won't been the case, Jon’s death was too abrupt and seemed pointless for it to be permanent. Plus, the directors wouldn’t linger on the image of the breathless Jon, being surrounded by pools of his own blood, for no reason, right?

The Stupid TV Shows That Should Never Have Existed

Is TV the greatest invention ever made by mankind or a hideous curse sent to make us all stupider? If we take a look at some of the most stupid TV shows that ever existed then the answer might seem obvious.

Dallas

Stupid TV Shows

I’m going to try very hard not to mention Booby Ewing coming back to life in the shower. Ok, so maybe not too hard. This show was a lost cause even before the ridiculous resurrection of Bobby but that plot twist remains the single most ridiculous thing to have ever appeared on my TV screen. Apart from that, this was just an everyday show about evil oil barons, rampant shoulder pads and other stuff I can’t remember.

Crossroads

Stupid TV Shows

From a glitzy, dazzling American soap to a humble British one; the only thing these shows have in common is the fact that they are both mind numbingly terrible. Most people’s abiding memory of Crossroads is of the achingly stupid Benny. The rest of the show’s 24-year run was a haze of excruciating dialogue, awful plots and wooden acting. 24 years! How we suffered back in those days.

The Dukes of Hazzard

Stupid TV Shows

I’m sorry. I really am. I know that you loved this show but it was just awful. For a start, it was just the most ridiculously contrived thing ever. If you thought that the Duke Boys’ wacky car stunts were the best thing about it then you are probably right, but only because the rest of it was so bad. Bo and Luke have some sort of fuzzily improbable probation terms that means that they either can’t leave Hazzard Country or else they can leave as long as they come back with a certain number of hours. Can you imagine being trapped in such a terrible place, with unbelievably bungling cops all around you and such frankly dangerous driving conditions on the roads?

Baywatch

Stupid TV Shows

What can I say about Baywatch that hasn’t already been said? Well, I could say that it is a cultural treasure packed with gripping dialogue and almost no gratuitous bikini shots at all. Sadly, I’d be hopelessly wrong. Incredibly, this frankly awful and stupid TV show was once one of the most popular shows in the entire known universe. Try watching an old episode now and see how quickly you lose faith in human intelligence.

Big Brother (and Every Other Reality Show)

Stupid TV Shows

I know that there is a world of lame reality shows out there but I have managed to avoid most of them in a way not unlike the way in which one steers clear of highly contagious diseases. I know, for example, of a simple-minded and desperately shallow family called the Kardashians. I also know that there are reality shows involving singers, people desperate to get married and all sorts of other flotsam and jetsam of televisual nonentities. However, ever since I spent an hour watching the very first series of Big Brother I vowed to avoid reality shows until I draw my last breath.

George & Mildred

Stupid TV Shows

As I grew up in the UK I am as used to pathetic sitcoms as I am to soggy, insipid biscuits and overly milky tea. This means that I could really have chosen any one from a long list of unfunny TV disasters. I only chose this unholy calamity because it was the first name to spring to mind that made me remember long, dark nights watching a TV screen and wondering why I had absolutely no urge to laugh at something that was (at least theoretically) a comedy.

Top 3 Movies You Definitely Have to See from 2013

A good movie is worth absolutely every penny spent on tickets, the waiting and the snacks, so much so that most of us prefer to watch a movie in the cinema not just for the special effects and 3D renditions, but also due to the excellent atmosphere. The issue is making the grave mistake of not properly analyzing a trailer and choosing a bad movie to see in the cinema. And as each year has it’s do’s and don’ts , here are three of the “do’s “ of 2013 where movies are concerned:

Despicable Me 2

Teaming up again to destroy- oh no, this time, to save the world, Gru and his minions are adapting to family life which seems to suit them perfectly. While attempting to live honestly, he is recruited by a special organization in order to save the world from a new super villain. Steve Carell magnificently lends his vocal abilities to give life to one of the most loveable villains cinema has ever seen. It’s not just that the lines are perfectly written or that the actors play their parts convincingly, it’s also that the animation exquisitely captures any subtlety of the lines that are being spoken and of the state of mind the characters find themselves in. Not to mention the adorable minions that have become some of the most loved animated pictures characters (alongside the Penguins of Madagascar and Scratch from Ice Age) recently created.

With a unique design, absolutely hilarious sound effects and language as well as ridiculously laid out plans for the simplest of tasks, the minions turn an already wonderful animated picture into one that is simply exquisite. With well written scenes, minion abductions, an ex-villain turned vigilante, “Despicable Me 2” is certainly well worth the cinema visit and will keep you laughing all through the 100 minutes of film time.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Regardless of negative opinions regarding the first movie in the Hobbit trilogy, this sequel was one of the most expected movies of 2013 and with obvious reason. The breathtaking scenes that start the trailer off take viewers back into the magical world of dragons, elves, dwarves and hobbits- the beautiful night elf cities, imposing dwarf sculptures at the entrance to the lonely mountain, incredible detail and exquisite colors and seem to take the well-known quality of the Lord of the Rings movies a step further.

y3

If this weren’t enough, the trailer soon shows off one of the best special effects that have ever been seen on the big screen: the mighty Smaug. The chromatic and detail that has been put into this one scene where Bilbo meets the dragon is mind-boggling. With such effects, unique locations that only Jackson can portray and such talented actors, most movie lovers were crossing their days off their calendars until the release date.

Thor: The Dark World

One of the best (and most attractive) super heroes on screen makes a comeback that promises to be even better than fans would expect, ready again to save the world with his lovely locks and killer abs. As with all Marvel productions, the trailer begins with colossal special effects meant to impress even the least impressionable of viewers. The opening scene where the Greenwich University seems to be under attack is simply exquisite.

y1

The fact that the movie takes place in Valhalla for a change is reason enough for viewers to not only be curious, but to barge into cinemas. Sets are magnificently put together, costumes are beautifully crafted and if there wasn’t enough epicness  in the movie, Anthony Hopkins and Tom Hiddleston inject just enough talent into the movie to turn it into a must-see event. So make sure to catch these movies in cinemas if you haven’t yet – you’re in for a treat.

What Is Going to Happen in Game of Thrones Season 4? Hints from the Teaser

GoT worshipers rejoice. Your favorite TV Series is coming back to television, and it is bigger and better than ever before. It seems like all the waiting paid off, because producers have come up with, what seems to be, the most intense season of the series. The Game of Thrones 15-minute season special “Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing” was presented on HBO yesterday, and it has made the wait, even more difficult to deal with, because it has left us with many questions. How much of the siege or occupation of Meereen will be presented in the season? Will Brienne wander the Riverlands? What will happen to the Mother of Dragons? There are a few things that the Game of Thrones foreshadowing trailer has told us:

oo

1. On the Wall and Beyond it

We already know that Winter is coming, and that two armies (that from the North: White Walkers, and Mance Rayder's wildlings), and the soldiers from Castle Black are about to clash. In the season-three finale we already find out that Stannis is the only one who answers the call to defend the wall. In the meanwhile, Melisandre finds a new source of king's blood, and Bran, Hodor and the Reed children continue with their quest to find the three-eyed crow. Bran learns more about his freenseeing and warging abilities, and this creates an opportunity for us to learn more about Ned Stark's History.

2. Sam and Jon are Reunited

To be frank, we kind of liked the Jon Snow – Sam couple, and we are very happy to see that they will be reunited. Obviously, there is some drama involved between the two as well. John Bradley says “Sam and Jon's relationship is as even and equal as it's ever been”, while Kit Harington adds that “I think without Sam, Jon would crumble”.

3. The Season Ender wont be the Huge Climax

Up until new we were accustomed to having episode 9 as a huge climax. According to the foreshadowing episode, this won't happen in season 4 of Game of Thrones. Apparently, there will be more climatic events in Season 4, David Benioff says.

4. The Battle on the Wall will be Amazing

Granted, producers may not have said a lot of things about what's happening on the Wall, but they have revealed several actions scenes. These scenes in which Styr the Magnar of Them leads the charge and Jon Snow leads others are amazing, and this means that the final result will be magnificent.

5. Daenerys may have a throne Room, but she has some problems

ooo

As you can see from the footage, Daenerys's dragons are all grown up, but this raises another problem for Daenarys. Emilia Clarke actually sates that “They've killed her enemies, what's going to stop them from killing anyone,”… “I think it's kind of a symbol of her losing control of herself and losing control of what she's doing.” The dragons are huge, and the book viewers will probably know that the scene at the end of the special is one very relevant to Dany's arc. Daenerys realizes that she can't just conquer cities and move from one to another, and that she has to leave someone who shares her opinions about leading.

6. The Royal Wedding is Magnificent

There was a lot of footage shown for the wedding between Joffrey and Margaery. Apparently, there is no secret that the two will be married, and we have to admit that the setting really looks spectacular. All the actors on the set talk about just how massive the scale will be, and Natalie Dormer actually states that she will probably never attend such a grand wedding in her life.

All in all, Season for of Game of Thrones will probably be focused entirely on the war between the Five Kings, and it will come to a close with the battles on the Wall. Also, one thing you should always keep in mind: if you are invited to a wedding, send thanks by raven.
