I'll set the DVR when I get home just for you, Phil.

So it's like an hour of shiat that's going to scare me shiatless?

Kind of like another hour with my X Wife?

Naaah I'll pass.

Do you have pics of said cutie?

Wow Phil you seem like a natural tv space personality... looks cool.
 
2010-07-23 03:30:52 PM
Is it just me, or does the cartoon version of Phil look a lot like Dr. Venture?

Thanks everyone! And sure, DVR it, but make sure you watch the commercials and buy all the fine products advertised on The Discovery Channel.
 
2010-07-23 03:32:54 PM
Bah. I liked my headline better.

Congrats, Phil!

Depends, will they run ads for Colt 45 and porn during your program?
 
2010-07-23 03:37:18 PM
Good job Phil.
 
2010-07-23 03:37:26 PM
Will you investigate Homer's theory of a donut-shaped universe?
 
2010-07-23 03:38:42 PM
The Bad Astronomer: Thanks everyone! And sure, DVR it, but make sure you watch the commercials and buy all the fine products advertised on The Discovery Channel.

I don't think you understand how good something has to be to make my DVR schedule. This is an honor and a privilege for all involved.
 
2010-07-23 03:39:04 PM
So it's like his last book then? Sound's good.

Not a bad looking show, but much like the moon landings, it's really filmed on a sound stage on Mars.

Ouch. Harsh.
 
2010-07-23 03:45:26 PM
Wait, Discovery has a channel now?
 
2010-07-23 03:50:41 PM
Impressive! Congratulations!

/consider it DVR'd
 
2010-07-23 03:55:00 PM

Looks like something right up my ally.

/Make sure to slip in occasional fark references.
 
2010-07-23 03:57:53 PM
I'll be watching the show.

2010-07-23 03:58:50 PM
Nice. Kind of reads like a cross between Mythbusters and The Universe?
 
2010-07-23 03:58:57 PM
"Breaking Bad Astronomy"

or is the "Bad" the meaning from Michael Jackson's lexicon?
 
2010-07-23 03:59:52 PM
Make sure to post a reminder thread because I will forget about it.
 
2010-07-23 04:06:04 PM
That looks really cool. Nice work.
 
2010-07-23 04:09:23 PM
mmm I love a good debunking. Will give it a watch.
 
2010-07-23 04:12:54 PM
Hello? Yes, I'd like to nominate The Bad Astronomer for "KING OF AWESOME!"

Grats phil

Just make sure on your Alien episode you cover the whole aliens come to earth and die from a staph infection.

The Bad Astronomer: Thanks everyone! And sure, DVR it, but make sure you watch the commercials and buy all the fine products advertised on The Discovery Channel.

What, like a Ford? Look I love Mike Rowe and would have his man-children, but there ain't no way I'm buying a damned Ford.

Seriously though, congrats. Discovery needs more stuff to fill in when they're not running Mythbuster and Deadliest Catch re-runs. I'll have in the DVR sched.

I'm guessing that her mutant power is enshrivelment.

coasterdigi: Is it just me, or does the cartoon version of Phil look a lot like Dr. Venture?


No, Dr. Venture is trying to look like Phil.
 
2010-07-23 04:24:44 PM
That's great man! Congrats.

Listen, as long as you have the ear of the Discovery bigwigs, see if you can pitch my idea for a show. It'll be a reality show where they follow me around the world while I visit bars, prostitutes and gambling establishments in different countries. I call it:

"Hey, Let's Follow This Guy With Our Camera."

I'll cut you in.
 
2010-07-23 04:34:46 PM
Congrats, phil.

2010-07-23 04:37:20 PM
So the Discovery Channel's gonna have a science program now? Is this allowed?
 
2010-07-23 04:39:39 PM
Congrats bro!
