Sesame Street Parody: Game of Chairs

I remember when I was a young lad working at Barnes & Noble in college, and all of my co-workers were atwitter about this dark new fantasy book: A Game of Thrones. It took me a couple years to buy in, and then I started advocating the series to my friends.

I never imagined what a cultural phenomena it would become. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger, our most beloved childhood icons produced this outstanding parody. Enjoy!

Wonder Woman Review

Wonder Woman

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 9

What would happen if you paired a noble Amazon with a thief, a criminal and a murderer and tasked them with saving the world?

No, it’s my beloved The Great Indoors, starring Joel McHale. It’s the biggest traveshamockery since the untimely demise of Better Off Ted.
