Every so often my two boys will start watching a new cartoon and as a parent who is obsessed with TV I need to keep in the loop. They lead me to watch such great shows as Gravity Falls, Regular Show, and Steven Universe. The latest show in their rotation is Nickelodeon’s Sanjay and Craig.
Produced by Pete And Pete co-creators Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi, the show tells the story of an Indian-American boy, Sanjay, and his best friend, Craig. The two go on a series of adventures, all predicated on and hindered by the fact that Craig is a snake. The Calvin And Hobbes-like dynamic makes for tons of wacky adventures: In the first episode, the two protagonists attempt to witness a butt transplant and try to find new laughs after being convinced that theirs are the worst. So, yeah, it’s pretty weird and juvenile—but in a great way.
Voiced by Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock’s Jonathan) and Chris Hardwick respectively, Sanjay and Craig are an incredibly endearing twosome. They have secret conferences inside Sanjay’s shirt and a giggly language that, while it’s clearly just meant for the two of them, is easily grasped by anyone jumping into the series. The series’ ancillary characters, like Sanjay’s doctor mom or the duo’s pageant-girl neighbor, Megan (Linda Cardellini), are also pretty great. Sanjay and Craig also have a weird neighbor, Mr. Noodman (Tony Hale), who hates snakes and wants to kill Craig, but the threat never gets so serious as to endanger either Craig or any of the show’s action.

New episodes air on Saturdays and the show has already been renewed for a second season. If you’re looking for a place to start my boys told me their favorite episodes are ‘Laked Nake’ and ‘Fart Baby’. Sanjay and Craig should be in your TV viewing rotation.
I love this weird show.
'Bad Tina' is one of the episodes I'm pushing for when TV Hangover does our Bob’s Burgers party in two weeks. You should come if you’re in the Brooklyn area - Come hang out.
Also, let us know on Twitter what episodes you think we should watch.
My boyfriend is watching The Wire for the first time and I have been watching some of the episodes with him. I’m not ready to see Wallace die again, though.
Leona Lewis: Better In Time
Sorry, I’ve had this song stuck in my head for weeks and I just needed to get it out there.
Does anyone want to go out to dinner and discuss, IN LENGTH, Anne Burrell’s new hairdo?
It’s not just me thinking that this season of GIRLS is really great, right?
I made some wonton soup for lunch today.
Bring chicken (or vegetable broth) to a boil, add frozen wontons (or whatever kind you have) and heat for 1-2 minutes. Add baby bok choy, cilantro, green onion, one bay leaf (remove when done), few sprinkles of dried thyme, a couple slices of jalapeno, and salt & pepper to taste.
Are you ready for our next TV Hangover event? On March 21, we’re going to celebrate a show near and dear to our hearts: Bob’s Burgers. Bob’s Burgers is, in my opinion, the funniest show on television and the Belchers are my favorite animated family. Come join your TV Hangover editors as we watch a few episodes, talk about how awesome Tina Belcher is, play drinking games, and host a few rounds of trivia where you can win free drinks and some Bob’s Burgers prizes.
Dress up! Write some erotic friend fiction! RSVP and tell us which episodes you’d like to watch!
Tickets are only $5 and it’s recommended that you get them soon — our last event sold out in advance and this one definitely will.
March 21 at 8:00pm

I’ll be there for this one. I can’t wait!
If anyone knows of an affordable place to stay in the area for me & my bf - can you message/email me, please? Thank you.
The second half of this season of The Walking Dead has been so great. I am loving the really focused episodes of the characters and how they are dealing with life outside of the prison in their own splinter groups. I never thought I’d like Beth, but whoever came up with the idea to put Darryl and Beth together is a genius.
