You Will, You Won't | Film Events | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

You Will, You Won't

Generally speaking, when I tell you to do something—you should do it.

Generally speaking, when I tell you to do something - you should do it. HOWEVER! If I tell you to do something, and I appear to be wildly intoxicated, mostly naked, and have something that may or may not be feces smeared on my face? You probably shouldn't do it. Of course, you have no way of knowing if I'm currently wildly intoxicated, nearly nude, and have a poopylike substance on my face or not - so I guess you'll just have to trust me. What follows are some things you WILL watch on TV this week, and some things you WON'T watch. C'mon. Trust me.


WILL WATCH: Sharktopus (SYFY, Sat Sept 25, 9 pm). Or, as it's also known, "MOTHEREFFING SHARKTOPUS, MOTHEREFFERS, YEAAAAHHHH!!" Cult filmmaker Roger Corman brings this hilariously horrible flick that stars Eric Roberts (YEAAAAHHH!!) as an evil genius who genetically creates "the navy's next superweapon": a killer shark crossed with a gropey octopus! (YEAAAAHHH!!) Dear "Science" - can you please come up with more of these genetic abominations? Like maybe a shark crossed with a billy goat? Or an octopus crossed with a wiener dog? (Weinerdoctopus!)

WILL WATCH: Eastbound & Down (HBO, Sun Sept 26, 10:30 pm). Danny McBride stars in this flat-out funny series about disgraced pro baseball player Kenny Powers, who returns home to plot his comeback. At the end of season one, Kenny is rejected by the major league, dumps the love of his life at a gas station, and flees to Mexico in humiliation. At the start of season two, Kenny learns that Mexico is AWESOME (especially if you're a moderately talented baseball player who enjoys cheap sex, food, and drugs). Is that racist? YOU'RE RACIST!

WILL WATCH: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (CBS, Thurs Sept 23). Normally, I'd rather gargle rusty razor blades coated with the semen of a syphilitic donkey than watch CSI. But not this week, because JUSTIN BIEBER is the guest star!! EEEEEEEE!!! JUSTINBIEBERJUSTINBIEBER JUSTINBIEBER!!!!! (What's Justin Bieber doing on CSI? I have no idea, because I'm too busy screaming to find out! JUSTIN BIEBER!!! EEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!)

Now let's move on to what you...

WON'T WATCH: Bleep My Dad Says (CBS, Thurs Sept 23, 8:30 pm). This new shitcom is based on the once-popular internet site Shit My Dad Says, which features the authentically hilarious quotes of a grumpy old dad. Unsurprisingly, the humor doesn't translate, and even star William Shatner can't save this shit heap. There's only one thing from the internet I want to see on my TV, and it's called "FREE PORN."

WON'T WATCH: Outsourced (NBC, Thurs Sept 23, 9:30 pm). After his office is outsourced to India, a honky manager is hired to "Americanize" the native workers. Racism, desperately unfunny jokes, and the urge to swing a pickax at your TV screen ensue. You may like it, though... since YOU'RE RACIST!!

WON'T WATCH: Law & Order: Los Angeles (NBC, Wed Sept 29, 10 pm). Just like the other 49 creatively bereft incarnations of Law & Order - except this one doesn't guest star Justin Bieber. (But if you genetically cross Justin with a wiener dog and a killer octopus? NOW you've got a show! "EEEEE!!! It's Wienerbieboctopus!"

Is there something on my face? steve@portlandmercury.com
