Futurama: “The Honking”/ “The Cryonic Woman”

“The Deep South,” but at least there she got some good straight lines.) Once Michelle decides that she wants to jump into the future, all nuance is gone. She nags and prods Fry in the most predictable ways possible, and it’s not particularly funny or entertaining to watch. The concept of a demanding girlfriend/wife is a cliche that needs more creative effort to redeem it than simple regurgitation. While it’s amusing to see Michelle insist Fry prove his worth to a group of thuggish grade schoolers, it’s not amusing enough to make her compelling, or someone who’d be worth spending a whole episode on.

Putting Michelle aside, we’re left with… not a whole lot. “The Cryonic Woman” does bring back the career chips from the pilot, so kudos to whomever yelled at me in the comments when I said the chips would never be back. (I assume there was someone? If not, too late now.) After Fry, Bender, and Leela get fired, Leela mixes up the career chips, and Fry and Bender end up working at her old job. (She gets stuck as a pizza delivery woman.) So it’s nice to see that place hasn’t been completely forgotten. Oh, and Pauly Shore shows up, and the joke is that he’s an intense intellectual, which contrasts wildly with his public persona as an idiot. Shore handles the dialogue well enough.

There’s something disheartening about the show bringing someone from Fry’s time to the future—a development which feels at once desperate and half-assed—and doing nothing much with her at all. We leave this episode with roughly the same impression we had of Michelle at the start, and that’s not just weak writing, it’s a waste of everyone’s time.

Stray observations:

  • Opening caption: “Not A Substitute For Human Interaction”
  • Zoidberg, after Bender, Fry, and Leela are fired: “Now Zoidberg is the popular one!”
  • Zoidberg, after visiting the fantasy planet where your dreams come true: “For one beautiful night, I knew what it was to be a grandmother.”
  • Weird Al is in one of the cryo-tubes, or at least someone who looks a lot like him.
  • Bender has sex with the Probulator.
  • “Michelle, I don’t regret this, but I both rue and lament it.” -Fry, having second thoughts
  • In the end, Fry begs Farnsworth for his old job back, and Farnsworth dumps him out of the ship. That’s it. The only resolution to him getting fired is knowing that next week, he’ll be back at the job without any explanation. It’s a gag I’ve seen on a few different shows, mostly animated; sometimes, the writers just assume the audience realizes that things are never going to change that much, and let us put the pieces together ourselves.

Adam Sandler’s ‘Pixels’ Looks Truly Terrible

Video game movies. I just can’t understand why they’re so rarely any good.

You’d think that cobbling two great mediums together would result in something spectacular. Such is hardly ever the case.

Pixels, Sony’s new alien invasion movie starring Adam Sandler and Kevin James, looks like no exception.

The premise is basically pulled from Futurama episode “Anthology of Interest II.”

Basically aliens misinterpret the games we send out into space in the 80′s and send back giant alien video game monsters to destroy the earth. For some reason Kevin James and Adam Sandler and friends are the only ones who can stop them.

Not everything looks bad here, as cheesy and ridiculous as the movie undoubtedly will be.

PAC-MAN is a bad guy, and the heroes bring his creator Tōru Iwatani (played by Denis Akiyama) to stop him. The results are pretty funny.

And Peter Dinklage should always, always wear a mullet. It’s so epic. I want Tyrion Lannister to sport a mullet from now on. Hell, I want Cersei Lannister to sport a mullet. Mullets all around.

I’m much less excited about another Adam Sandler movie than I am about Peter Dinklage’s mullet, it turns out. Oh well.

Here’s the trailer:

Pixels will join a legion of other bad video game movies this summer.

Not all video game movies are terrible, of course. My personal favorite—by a long mile—is Wreck It Ralph.

Centenary Stage Company’s Women Playwrights Series launches with ‘Futurama’

The 23rd annual Women Playwrights Series at the Centenary Stage Company will launch on April 8, with ‘Futurama,’ by Playwright Samantha Charlip, presented at 7:30 p.m., in the Lackland Center. (courtesy photo)  

The 23rd annual Women Playwrights Series at the Centenary Stage Company will launch on April 8, with “Futurama,” by Samantha Charlip, presented at 7:30 p.m., in the Lackland Center.

In this charmingly funny and perceptive play, a 1950s-era amusement park in southern Florida claims to see into the future, which has in fact turned out quite differently from the original vision. When the self-help guru Brian Gold brings his “Greatness Weekend” to the park, the young employees April and Otis, who have been adrift in their lives and their jobs, begin to have revelations about their own futures. The presentation will be directed by Tara Downs, a Brooklyn-based artist and member of Lincoln Center Directors Lab program.

Playwright Samantha Charlip is a New York-based playwright and writer/producer for television networks including AE, Turner and Viacom. Her plays include: “Futurama,” which was a finalist in the O’Neill National Playwrights Conference, won the Award of Excellence in Playwriting at the Tennessee Repertory NewWorks Lab, and was nominated for the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Comedy Award; “Below,” “Love in the Time of Gonorrhea,” “Youtube Superstars,” and “One Universal You” (Know Theatre, The Piney Fork Theatre). Charlip’s television original pilots were selected as semi-finalists in Storyboard TV’s 2011 and 2012 pilot competition and were cited at the Austin Film Festival.

She is recent graduate of NYU’s Tisch Dramatic Writing MFA program where she studied playwriting under Pulitzer Prize winner, Annie Baker, Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks, Eduardo Machado and Oskar Eustis, artistic director of The Public Theater. Charlip was awarded the Tisch School of the Arts Full Tuition Departmental Fellowship.

Now in its 23rd year, the Centenary Stage Company Women Playwrights Series ( WPS) presents three-four new plays each year in rehearsed staged readings throughout the month of April. Led by Program Director Catherine Rust, the Women Playwrights Series is dedicated to providing a working forum for the unique and underserved voice of women writing for the theater today. The series offers emerging playwrights a chance to work with professional directors and actors in a short rehearsal period, followed by a staged reading of the work in front of a live audience, with audience feedback and discussion. Each presentation is followed by lively “talk-backs” with the playwright and cast following the performance. The Series features the finalists in the Susan Glaspell contest, which offers the winner further development support worth $45,000 in a full production in the Centenary Stage Company professional Equity main-stage season, as well as a cash award to the author.

Centenary Stage Company is an affiliate member of the National New Play Network (based in Washington, D.C.), and participates in the “Extended Life” and “Rolling World Premiere” programs, designed to give playwrights larger exposure and sustained life throughout the country in their first year of production.

Admission to the “Futurama” is by donation and reservations are requested. For reservations and information contact the Centenary Stage Company Box Office at 908-979-0900, or visit online at www.centenarystageco.org

Also featured in this year’s Women Playwrights Series will be “Start Down” by Eleanor Burgess, on Wednesday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m.; “True Love ” by Tracy Thorne on Wednesday, April 22 at 7:30 p.m.

The Centenary Stage Company Women Playwrights Series is made possible in part through the generous support of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation , the Puffin Foundation, Zonta International organization for empowering women, The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, the NJ State Council on the Arts, Heath Village Retirement Community, and the many Centenary Stage Company members and sponsors.

Remembering Leonard Nimoy

On Friday 27th February, The New York Times announced the extremely sad news that Star Trek actor and director, Leonard Nimoy, passed away at the age of 83. Nimoy announced in January that he was suffering from lung disease, which his wife attributed to his smoking habit that lasted 30 years before quitting in the 1970s.

Daniel Arrhakis

For many people, Nimoy will be remembered as the iconic Mr. Spock from the sci-fi TV series and films, a role he won when the producers put out a casting call asking for a “tall, thin guy to play an alien”. He also directed two of the motion pictures (The Search for Spock and The Voyage Home), and starred as Spock Prime in the J.J. Abrams remakes. He was also known for parts in the films Invasion of the Bodysnatchers (1978), and Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (2011). He starred in the Mission: Impossible TV series, and had guest roles on The Simpsons, Futurama, The Big Bang Theory, and Star trek: The Next Generation.

He will be sorely missed throughout the world as one of the most iconic figures of 20th century television and cinema. His final tweet read: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory, LLAP.”  Nimoy fulfilled the demand of his Vulcan aphorism, for he lived long and prospered.

Are French police dramas the new black? Or at least the new Scandi noir? Witnesses draws deep from The Killing well, with moody northern France standing in as Copenhagen and detective Sandra Winckler (Marie Dompnier) as Sarah Lund sans ponytail. As bodies keep turning up in display homes, Winckler starts to question the involvement of detective-out-of-retirement Paul Maisonneuve. Why is the main suspect, escaped killer and rapist Kaz Grabier, taunting him? And, most bafflingly, why is a wolf involved in any of this? Like French men themselves, Witnesses is moody and good-looking but doesn’t yet have the chokehold The Killing held over its audience each episode.

The Simpsons, Eleven, 8.30pm

Matt Groening’s two animated worlds collide tonight as Futurama meets The Simpsons for Simpsonsorama, as Bender (‘‘A robot with a catchphrase!’’) lands in Springfield on a mission to kill Homer. But, as Lisa reasons, ‘‘Why must you kill my dad, when cheeseburgers are doing the work for you already?’’  While the jokes are more smile-worthy than laugh-out-loud funny these days, they still have a strike rate that most shows could only dream of.

Washington’s Spies, Showcase, 7.30pm

The massacre of the Redcoats at the end of the first episode has got the British smelling a rat. And it’s their slightly terrifying mercenary guerilla captain Robert Rogers (Angus Macfadyen) who heads to Long Island to sniff out the rodent. This would seem to be bad news for reluctant rebel spy Abe (Jamie Bell) and his ex, Anna (Heather Lind). Meanwhile, captured Redcoat captain John Simcoe (Samuel Roukin) is expecting torture at the hands of rebel spies Tallmadge and Brewster (Seth Numrich and Daniel Henshaw) but remains snottily supercilious. Enjoyable popcorn-munching fare.

Detroit Unleashed, Animal Planet, 8.30pm

It’s standard doggie-rescue action as rapper Dan Carlisle – stage name Hush – scoops up lost and abandoned mutts on the mean streets of Detroit. Carlisle and his offsiders identify with the dogs because they too have been in bad situations in life and needed a second chance. Detroit’s blighted streetscapes  look like something out of The Walking Dead but Carlisle is convinced that the city is on the verge of a renaissance.

MOVIES

Sex is Comedy (2002), World Movies (pay TV), 9.30pm

In 2001, Catherine Breillat (see An Old Mistress, Tuesday) made one of her greatest films, A Ma Soeur. It tells of two teenage sisters: the hauntingly beautiful Elena (Roxanne Mesquida) and the younger, plump and sullen Anais (Anais Reboux). Given Breillat has a well-known sister (Marie-Helene), many saw A Ma Soeur as a bitter roman a clef. And it is certainly an extremely blunt look at sibling rivalry, and at the desire to be loved and embraced, but never objectified. It is cinema feminine at its purest. A year later, perhaps feeling unfinished with her subject, Breillat did a postmodern revisiting, Sex is Comedy, about a director (Anne Parillaud) making A Ma Soeur, with one of the same lead actors, Roxanne Mesquida. Unlike Francois Truffaut’s Day for Night, which is a light-hearted, funny and charming look at the insanity of making movies, this is sombre and disturbing, with a highly cerebral filmmaker critiquing one of her earlier works and the difficulties she had in directing its most controversial scene, where Anais watches Elena have intercourse with a young man (Libero De Rienzo) in their shared bedroom. The boyfriend is now played by Gregoire Colin, but the audience’s rapt attention will be more on the ice-cool way Breillat dissects the filmmaking process, exposing the manipulative games and childish tantrums of actors and directors, and providing some delightfully arcane detail (such as a selection of fake penises). Sex is Comedy is not the masterpiece A Ma Soeur is, and it could never be, but it is a fascinating look at the deceits and joys of the filmmaking process.

Hope Springs (2012), Nine, 9.45pm

In 2012’s Hope Springs, Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones play a 30-year-married couple, Kay and Arnold, who have passed from lovers to best friends to totally exhausted. And when sniping at each other is simply the best you can hope for, why not a week’s intense therapy in a cute village on the New England coast, where Dr Feld (Steve Carell, playing it straight) will try to extricate you from a state of relationship death? Feld: ‘‘What about oral sex?’’ Kay: ‘‘I wasn’t … I wasn’t comfortable with that.’’ Feld: ‘‘Giving or receiving?’’ Kay: ‘‘Huh?’’ Now, if you think it’s ridiculous that a fiftysomething woman could be that naive and prudish, go online and read how Kay and Arnold’s fellow citizens have raged at the inappropriateness of that conversation. David Frankel’s beautifully acted and funny film is way more therapeutic and crucial than one would have ever thought necessary.
