BTWF: Kal Penn in NYPD Blue

Before Kal Penn was a detective in Battle Creek, he needed the help of the NYPD Blue detectives to solve a crime against his uncle. How cute was the 24-year-old in that 2001 episode?


NASA astronaut Mike Massimino talks about pooping in Space
December 18th, 2023 under Kal Penn, NASA. [ Comments: none ]

Let’s be honest. We have all wondered how do astronauts shit in Space! Well, NASA astronaut Mike Massimino told Kal Penn how they do it on The Daily Show last week.

Massimino did not go into detail. But he shared that they have to “potty train” for it before they go up in Space. That is because the toilet only has a little hole, so you have to match your asshole up with that hole.

So, the instructors put the astronauts in a room with a toilet. That porcelain throne has a camera in it so that the person can see when the holes match up on a TV that is in the bathroom with them. When the holes are together, they then have to memorize that position so that they can recreate it up there.

And now you know how they take a dump in Space. And they need a little hole because what goes down in Space then goes up. And you don’t want shit literally hitting the fan because you can’t open a window and air out the spacecraft.

Seriously though, I am in love with Massimino after his interview. So much so that I cannot wait to read his book Moonshot. Who wants to buy it for me for Christmas?

Also, watch the whole interview. Not only is he cool because he went to Space, but also because he is just naturally cool and says it like it is!

Here is a fun fact about Massimino. He is the first astronaut to Tweet from Orbit in 2009!


BTWF: Kal Penn on Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Before Kal Penn went to college with Van Wilder, he was in a study group with Sabrina the Teenage Witch. He looks the same now as he did when he was 23 in that 2000 episode.


Kal Penn the Grouch

Kal Penn went to Sesame Street. And he came out grouchier than when he went in.

That is because Oscar the Grouch put the actor in his place. As in, Penn was seen in Oscar’s trash can. And for some reason, the former White House employee doesn’t look happy about it? I don’t know why because they always have sunny days on Sesame Street!

Maybe all Penn needs is what Kumar had when he was on the way to the White Castle?


The first new show pulled from the schedule is…
October 15th, 2019 under Kal Penn, NBC. [ Comments: none ]
After several seasons of no new shows being pulled from the lineup before they aired all of their episodes that were produced, NBC went back to the old way. In other words, this Thursday will be the last time that Sunnyside will air on NBC proper.

Instead, the sitcom will be streaming on the NBC app every Thursday. The show was scheduled to do only 10 episodes, but now they will be doing 11. According to USA Today, the reason why the low-rated show was saved because it doubled its younger audience online.

It is a shame that more people missed out on this show that stars Kal Penn while it was airing on our TVs. The pilot episode was an explainer and maybe it explained too much for the audience. Had they stayed with it, they would have realized that this a great show about a family. Not in a traditional way but as in immigrants who are in a strange country and have no one here beside each other.

Hopefully, more people will find it online. The show found its way, so it deserves to find a new audience.

When it comes to what will replace it, Will & Grace is back next week for its final episodes for the second time.

I feel for Kenan Thompson because there is a lot on his shoulders with his upcoming sitcom. It might make or break NBC’s comedies.

When it comes to what show will be the next one to be pulled from the lineup, your guess is as good mine. No new show is standing out, even though there are some good ones. If I had to pick one, I will go with Emergence. I am watching, but I am trying not to fall asleep while doing so. What about you?
