With the premiere of ‘The Firm,’ NBC has unleashed another movie-turned-TV-show on the world. You’ve no doubt heard about several other popular TV shows that were based on movies, such as ‘M*A*S*H*,’ ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Parenthood.’ But did you know that there was a ‘Parenthood’ sitcom in 1990 starring Leonardo DiCaprio?

The immensely popular viral video “Sh*t Girls Say” may have spawned a host of spin-offs, but none are more accurate than this take on things that every parent says at one point or another. “Do you pay the bills in this house?” Ah, yes, we’ve said it many times before.
On Dec. 31, an Australian tourist Erin Langworthy’s bungee cord snapped, sending her plummeting 365 feet into the crocodile-infested Zambesi River below. Does that qualify as a worst-case scenario or what?
It’s hard to believe that Harrison Ford has never seen any of the ‘Indiana Jones’ movies. And yet, here he is recently watching the original trilogy in wide-eyed wonder. (Apparently, even Indy himself wants to pretend that ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ never happened.)

Given that all its members are only 11-years-old, San Francisco rock band Haunted by Heroes isn’t even old enough to drive. But they’re old enough to knock out some of the best heavy metal riffage you’ve ever heard. Rock and roll!
A four-piece band called the Koren Ensemble races through 15 TV theme songs in slightly more than two minutes in this awesome medley. It’s a mashup guaranteed to seriously test your couch potato knowledge.
On Dec. 28th, Bagaudin Marshani, Russia’s Minister of Labor and Social Development in the Southern Republic of Ingushetia, reported the capture of a Bigfoot-like creature by hunters. But, alas, it was quickly revealed that the “animal” was nothing more than a person in a suit.
Or was that just another hoax to hide the truth about Bigfoot?
The original ‘Punk’d’ went off the air in 2007, but MTV is reviving the series with the aim of pranking a whole new generation of unlucky celebs. But when it returns in March, it looks like Khloe Kardashian will be the next celebrity victim.
