One of the categories I have on this blogs television awards is the award for a show that’s gone too soon. This year, I was going to give that award to The Crazy Ones, and now there’s an even bigger reason to honor that show with such an accolade, as of around noon today, prolific actor, comedian and Oscar award winner Robin Williams was found dead in his home.

Today, we lost a master of comedy.
Actor, writer, director and producer Harold Ramis, who got his start on the sketch comedy show SCTV (which also included John Candy, Rick Moranis, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara), passed away this morning from a rare immune deficiency disease. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More
I ran across this YouTube channel this morning and had to share it with everyone out there (not like they need the extra publicity; they already have from one to six million hits per video). Though I’m not sure about a lot of what Screen Junkies puts out, I did watch several of their “Honest Trailers” and they are hysterical. The best one that I saw (of the five or six I did watch… they have plenty more, but I haven’t the time to watch them all…) was the Home Alone Honest Trailer, which points out all of the idiosyncrasies of the film that you probably have never thought of before, such as how bad Kevin’s family really is and the child abuse they bestow upon him. (The Matrix Honest Trailer is a close second in pure enjoyment and number of laughs per minute… or should I say, per second.)
Too awesome for words!
1A4 Studios has also produced minute long versions of The Matrix, Back to the Future and Blade Runner (among many others, some of which can get a little vulgar), but in my opinion, this is by far the best… (even if I may be a wee bit biased!)
