Season 3 of Barnes Bros. TV begins April 1st. #OpenYourEyes
Zel and Jalen are pleased to welcome the newest addition to Barnes Bros. TV: Tim Casey.
A resident of Missouri, Tim Casey is a video blogger who first garnered attention from The Barnes Bros. with his entry to the 72-Hour Blimey Cow Film Festival, Love Is Messy.
In that short film and in all of his video blogs (visit his personal channel here), Tim’s penchant for comedic timing and quality video production is immediately evident.
After Tim submitted a fan video response to an episode of Face Rockin’, The Barnes Bros. knew they had to get him on their channel.
And so now, you can expect to see Tim Casey appearing regularly on Barnes Bros. TV with his own show, Tim In Progress, starting in Season 3 next year.
Buttttt since we’re The Barnes Bros. and we love our fans so much, we’re not going to make you wait that long to start seeing some of his content. So, we’re going to preview Tim’s new show by airing a few episodes of Tim In Progress THIS MONTH so you can see just how awesome he is and be even more excited about the premiere of Season 3 in 2013.
So, mark your calendars: The first Tim In Progress preview episode will air Tuesday, December 18th, 2012. Don’t miss it.
Say hello to Tim Casey: you’re going to be seeing a lot of him.
Also, it’s his birthday today so say Happy Birthday, too. Yeah.
We’re going to be sharing our thoughts and favorite moments of Season 2 and we’re going to tease some big things we’re planning for December and 2013.
Well guys, we just wrapped shooting on Season 2 of Face Rockin’! We’re really excited for you guys to see what we came up with for the finale and we know you’re going to enjoy it. Season 2! Season 2!
That’s right, guys, the Season 2 Finale of Barnes Bros. TV is next Monday. We’ll be back in 2013 for Season 3, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to wait that long to see more from us. We’ll still be keeping the channel updated with loads of content including gaming videos, short films, and even some Day 5 related content.
So stay tuned to our channel and be sure to watch the new episode of Face Rockin’ tonight and the finale on November 19th. Thanks guys!
So I recently watched the pilot for NBC’s new series Revolution on Hulu, and I rather enjoyed it. The concept of the show in a nutshell is that one day all of the power in the world mysteriously turns off and sets the world back technology-wise. The show picks up 15 years after that event and you get to see people surviving by growing vegetables, tending cattle, and using old-school Civil War-era muskets.
The premise is interesting, I like some of the characters, and the mysteries are worth sticking around for (at least for a little while) I think. The pilot wasn’t perfect, but it wasn’t anywhere near bad either.
Anyway, against my better judgment, I looked at some comments on the show to see what other people were thinking. To no surprise of mine, a lot of people were trashing the show; that being said, the reasons why most of the people were bashing it was mind-boggling.
They said the show was unrealistic. Let that sink in for a minute.
Now, let me get this out of the way before I continue: in this day and age, I think it’s very important as an entertainment content creator to pay close attention to the continuity and believability of your work. If a guy is wearing a hat while talking to his friend in a diner, and the shot cuts away and then comes back to him a couple of seconds later, his hat should still be on his head. Failure to keep up with that kind of thing can present that idea that you were lazy with your movie/TV show (and you don’t want that), so you should put the time in and get that stuff right.
But that wasn’t the type of thing that people had a problem with in Revolution. They were upset that no technology worked at all. They said that it didn’t make sense that cars didn’t work because scientifically speaking there are some older cars that can operate without electricity. Also, the idea that modern guns were no longer operable was unrealistic. Now, I didn’t research these people’s claims to see if they knew what they were talking about, and I really don’t care.
Because it’s a TV show. And not just a TV show, a sci-fi-ish TV show. The concept in and of itself is unrealistic. It requires a suspension of logic to even watch the show to begin with. I didn’t come to scrutinize the show to see if it matches up with scientific laws and theorems. I don’t really care.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying shows should do whatever they want and no one ever question it. The truth is I asked some of those same questions about Revolution, too, but I was willing to let it go long enough for the show to explain itself. And that’s what confused me about the people complaining. It was only one episode in and people were calling it “unwatchable” because of the leaps in logic. Seriously? Unwatchable? How committed to science are you that it makes the show literally unwatchable? It’d be different if this was a movie, and after its 2-hour run time no one explained the discrepancies and errors, but this show has only released one episode. Give it a chance before you decide that the writers don’t know what they’re doing. Besides, the writers even made a point to mention that the complete lack of technology doesn’t exactly make sense.
That’s right, in the first ten minutes of the show a character literally says (well kinda literally, I don’t remember the line perfectly): “No one understands how this happened. The laws of physics turned upside down.” Yep. The dude actually makes a reference to the fact that the lack of technology we’re all seeing is very strange even in this fiction world. That leads me to believe that the writers have an explanation. It may not be a good explanation, but somewhere down the road they will give a reason as to why everything isn’t working on a such a complete and astounding level. I’m willing to wait for that reason rather than trash this fiction show for having fiction concepts. Maybe, the cause of the blackout will be stupid once it’s revealed, but until then I’ll hold my judgment. That seems to me to be the reasonable thing to do.
What do you think?
