Have You Tried Turning It Off And On Again?

Oh, no big deal … it’s just the trailer for THE FINAL EPISODE OF MY FAVORITE TV SHOW EVER. Yes, chickadees, the last episode of the Brit-com that put Richard Ayoade, Chris O’Dowd and Katherine Parkinson on the map (in my heart, at least) is airing tonight in the UK on Channel 4.  Some Frisky reader across the pond who watched it, email me and tell me everything about it, okay?  No word on when it will air in the United States, if at all. I watched all the episodes on Netflix, where I would instruct you to check them out if you know what’s good for you.  [Laughing Squid]

“The Sapphires” is reportedly one of the very best films of the the year. It’s won all kinds of awards! But the DVD cover is … problematic. The flick stars Chris O’Dowd as the manager of a ’60s girl group in Australia comprised of four Aboriginal women, including “Australian Idol” runner-up Jessica Mauboy. Based on real events, “The Sapphires” is a love story that also tackles the racism these women faced in their native Australia. Alas, the U.S./Canada DVD cover for the film (above) plops O’Dowd front and center while the four women — their darker skin tones appearing blue along with the graphic design — smaller, behind him in the background.

Gross.

As you read this, PETA has a team of experts studying every micro-second of this video to see whether the fly died of natural causes or whether “Bridesmaids” actor Chris O’Dowd murdered the fly in a coldblooded act of dominant species callousness. One thing is for sure: “The Graham Norton Show” needs to buy some flypaper. [Crushable]

Why, Chris O’Dowd, why? The “Bridesmaids” actor and his wife Dawn O’Porter, a writer/documentarian, are hands-down my favorite celebrity couple. Which is why I was bummed to see O’Dowd tweet what basically reads like a date rape joke. “Drop the hand” is Irish slang for fingering or groping someone, which means he tweeted that he was going to “sneak” amaretto in her food on date night so he could finger her.

First of all, that’s a dumb joke. It doesn’t make sense. Who puts amaretto in food? Second of all, even though it was a joke (these two tweet all the time about both sex and getting drunk, which is why I like them), cracks about sneaking liquor into someone so you can get sex out of them are date rapey and not cool. It’s not “naughty” or “mischievous”; it’s gross. [Twitter.com/BigBoyler]

Simply put, “This Is 40″ left a sour taste in my mouth. I felt like Judd Apatow did what he always does, which is write a plum role for his wife, and then decide: “Hey, I’ll throw every other funny person I know in this movie! And also Megan Fox! She’ll take her top off! And swim in a bikini! And I’ll give my kids roles, too! Even though they’re not good actors!” Keep reading »

Chris O'Dowd and Dawn Porter

Over the summer, “Bridesmaids” actor Chris O’Dowd married British writer/TV host Dawn Porter, who was also not keen on changing her professional name. She has a piece in UK Glamour about wanting to take on her husband’s name in the spirit of blending families, but at the same time not wanting to lose the last name that’s always been hers. So, she compromised on “O’Porter.” Keep reading »
