Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re taking another ride on the nostalgia train. If you were a kid in the late 90s then I have a treat for you! After millions of book sells, countless years, and A LOT of Marvel movies, we’re finally getting a movie about a very under appreciated superhero. Yup, today we’re talking about the ‘Captain Underpants: The Epic First Movie’ trailer. Whether you loved this series, or wished everyone would shut up about it, you can’t deny the legacy and reach of this series. When the 1st trailer for the movie dropped recently, I knew that we had to talk about it, so let’s get to the trailer. Ready? Ok, lets go!!!
First let’s get into a brief history lesson about this book series. Captain Undepants was 1st release in the U.S. on September 1, 1997 and ran through August 25, 2015. Over the years the series has been met with critical acclaim and controversy which has landed it at the top of several banned books lists (which honestly we all know only makes a book more popular). Now as for the trailer itself, we definitely see that the movie seems to follow the original source material very closely. Firstly we meet 4th grade best friends George Beard and Harold Hutchins who love pulling pranks at school, and writing about the superhero they created together, Captain Underpants. George and Harold are known to be troublemakers at their school, much to the dismay of the evil Principal Benny Krupp. When George and Harold get in trouble one day, they hypnotize Principal Krupp and he starts to believe that he is Captain Underpants, thus our adventure begins. With the voice talents of stars such as: Kevin Hart (who honestly probably doesn’t need an introduction), Ed Helms (known for his work on ‘The Office’ as well as ‘The Hangover’ movie series, which as the research shows, has made many a top favorite movie list, even for those that have rated it regarding the gambling aspect and not the comedic value. Is that a good movie or what?! There is also Nick Kroll (who most recently worked on the highly successful 2016 adult animation movie ‘Sausage Party’), this movie is definitely expected to be a huge success. So what do you think people of the internet? Will ‘Captain Underpants: The First Epic movie be a success or a laughable flop? I guess we’ll find out on June 2nd just how far the nostalgia train will ride

Hello people of the internet!!! With summer quickly coming to an end (insert sad face), we will soon say hello to all of our favorite things about fall, such as: warm sweaters, all of the holidays were we eat things that we will regret in the spring, pumpkin spice everything, and FALL TV! So to celebrate, on today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss 3 new shows that will be hitting our TVs this fall. that you CAN’T miss out on (on a side note, by the time I post this blog 1 of the shows will have already premiered, also I didn’t mean to only feature shows that will begin in September, it just sort of worked out that way). Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
3) Muppets (September 22nd 8/7c, ABC):
In this show, we will see the everyday lives of The Muppets as they struggle to balance their personal and professional lives. We will also see all of the drama that happens behind the scenes as The Muppets produce the late night show ‘Up Late with Miss Piggy’. This show is going to be a parody of a mockumentary (which is a fake documentary style show such as The Office or Modern Family), and will definitely feature A LOT of drama and comedy. It has been said that this show will have a morn “grown up” flair to it that new and old fans will definitely love. Personally I can’t wait to see the drama that unfolds between Kermit and Miss Piggy after their breakup this summer (oh the drama!).
2) Game Shakers (September 12th 8:30/7:30c, Nickelodeon):
This new Nickelodeon show is sure to be a hit with kids and those who are still kids in their hearts. Game Shakers is the newest show from veteran hit maker Dan Schneider who previously brought us: All That, Kenan and Kel, Drake and Josh, iCarly, and so many more. This show is about two BFFs named Babe and Kenzie, who create a video game app for a school science project, and from this start a successful gaming company. Along the way they get their best friend Hudson to serve as their test dummy, and receive an investment from a successful rapper known as Double G. This show is going to include guest starring spots from various YouTubers and some stars from Dan Schneider’s other shows, and will co-star Kel Mitchell from Kenan and Kel (which older fans will fangirl/fanboy over).
1) Grandfathered (September 29th 8/7c, FOX)
This show stars John Stamos who is a recently divorced restaurant owner who finds out that he has a son (Josh Peck) he never knew about, and even more surprising, a granddaughter. This will definitely be a comedic sitcom that will have everyone talking. Personally I’m really excited to see Josh Peck (who we loved from Drake & Josh) and John Stamos’ comedic talents collide. This is definitely a show we will be talking about all fall.
