Episode 88: Even the Celestial Steed wonders when iAdam will propose

While your Scope hosts were busy sizing up their Depends undergarments and guzzling gallons of Ensure Vitamin drink, the “tweens” of the US of A went out and took over the pop culture landscape. We were out of touch, too busy watching “Murder She Wrote” reruns and listening to our Tiffany cassette tape to care.

But now, the Ignorance. Stops. Here.

Episode 88 brings a brand new bit, “What The Kids Are Into,” in which your Scope hosts dive into the latest teen trends. Yes, you’ll find out if the romantic vampire movement has “teeth,” and if Jared is now a Biebermaniac. It’s sure to make you feel thirteen all over again — even if that’s not a good thing.

We also take on the first legit comic movie of the year, Kick-Ass. And you know what that means: your Scope hosts do the entire show in green and yellow scuba suits, all the while pummeling each other with night sticks. Too bad we’re not filming this sucker…(foreshadowing?)

The Scope episode 88 thinks we’re alone now. There doesn’t seem to be anyone around.

3 Stars – Kick-Ass

    Just FYI – Vampire Diaries is not a bubble show. It’s actually the CW’s highest rated show in the 18-49 demographic (the only demo that counts) and got picked up for a second season back in February. That said, my opinion of the show (based on watching the first half of the first episode) is exactly the same as Adam’s.

    I can’t believe I’m really this far behind. I just got done listening to episode 72. haha. I’ll be all caught up by next week.

    I guess I was a little more sporadic. I’m not on 75.

    It’s funny. I remember when I used to be asked to be on this show. Guess I’m either
    a) not popular
    b) not a geek
    c) Shane’s nemesis

    Another great show. “What are the kids into?” continues the run of successful bits on this show. What’s next, β€œWhat our parents/grandparents are into?” Keep up the great work.

    I think for Scope Madness, once you started whittling down, knowing your musical tastes, we knew who was going to win. Or at least who wasn’t.

    Your review of Kick Ass made me want to see it.

    Your review of iCarly made me not want to see it. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the reviews.

    I do have to admit that Luke Ski’s impression of Rip Taylor at Marscon was pretty good.

    Hrm… I am a HUGE iCarly fan. I REALLY like it; I think it’s smarter than most sitcoms on TV today. Well, okay, I suppose, for me, I’m more of a fan of Tween sitcoms only because I really have nostalgic yearning for Savage “Better Off Dead” Steve Holland (writing/directing a lot of those tween shows these days like Phil Of The Future). I dunno, I think they’re goofy fun; Spencer (the brother) is hilarious; and by the way, their dad left Carly in the trust of Spencer. Carly and Spencer’s dad is in the military supporting them, monetarily.

    I understand the initial reaction especially with the pilot episode but just like anything else it’s developed into something more than what it started as; simple and rudimentary. I find iCarly far deeper and beyond other tween shows (as more and more episodes progress) than Hanna Montana and alike. Sure, okay, it’s not cerebral like LOST, 24, or even Desperate Housewives but it does display smart writing beyond a 9 year-old mind. Love you guys πŸ™‚ Just disappointed by the iCarly review πŸ™ but can understand it to a certain degree due to I don’t know anyone other than “those” other adults which like it who happen to have kids who are into it as well. There’s much more worse out there.
