<i>Comic Book Men</i>: The Not-So-Mighty Avengers

Have no fear, the Comic Book Men are here! Kevin Smith and the merry band of geeks that staff his Jersey-located comic book shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash make the leap to reality TV with the premiere of this new AMC series, which plays like a cross between Pawn Stars, Antiques Roadshow, American Chopper and, of course, Clerks.

We Get It Seth! You Love Porn!

We Get It Seth! You Love Porn! If there was any doubt as to whether Seth Rogen likes porn, it can be put to rest now that the word is out that he's developing a porn-centric show for Showtime. I get that all dudes look at porn, and that their predilections are often mined for comedic value, but it's one thing to make a joke or two at your own expense and another to build a career on your wanking tendencies.

Spaced: The Complete Series

Finally! Unless you're one of the initiated, you don't know how long we've been waiting for this. Available on DVD in its native U.K. for years, this 14-episode TV series was directed by Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz helmer Edgar Wright, starred both films' comedy team of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and was co-penned by Pegg as well. Also, it makes a lot of references to Star Wars, hence the Drew Struzan-esque painting of the cast on the cover of the box. Is it any wonder that American fans have been dying to get their hands on it? I mean, literally, through the black market? What a senseless waste of human life. The first Region 1 set ever would be worth it for the show alone, but the set is so packed with extras, you're really getting a bargain.

George Carlin, 1937-2008

George Carlin, 1937-2008

If there was ever a time to take up swearing, it's now. George Carlin, comedian, is dead at the age of 71, from heart failure. The Manhattan-born comedian had been doing comedy since 1960, and was the host of the very first episode of Saturday Night Live in 1975. Before that, he made history for his routine about the seven words you can't say on television, which he was arrested for performing at a comedy show in 1972 (the charges were dropped). The routine later reinforced the government's ability to sanction radio stations when it was played on the air, for some reason. (Hey, thanks, Mr. DJ!)
