Liam Neeson on Sesame Street

Mr Neeson is one of my three favourite actors. I can't remember the other two. Anyway, I was watching Sesame Street today, and he was a guest! He's doing some filming and is directed by The Count. Neeson counts up to 20 or something, and The Count is so pleased that he asks him to do it again. "Why? Wasn't that good enough?" The Count says he wants him to do it again because he does it so well. And then the second time round, his performance is so good... har har harrrrr, the lightning strikes, thunder claps and the rain falls. And so they're counting in the rain...get it?! Oh, never mind... More pictures here.

Firstly, the important question...

Why were you watching Sesame Street?!

jeffyen said...

I watch SS because it's really a very good and strong show, winning more than 97 Emmys in the cinematography, music, editing, lighting, costume design, art direction and screenplay categories.

The other reason is that Sesame Street is clearly not meant for kids. (That's just a marketing gimmick.) The language and clever puns, only a non-kid can understand...

But seriously, I watch it on the ABC because it beats the c**p found in the other commercial channels at the 8.30am timeslot! LOL

I'd recommend The Wiggles! too. Starts at 9.10am. My favourite segment is Where's Jeff?... You should watch it sometime. It's on every weekday hahaaa

BTW, it appears that your no. can handle broadband, maybe you can ask them again... or go to their website and put in the number in their website (the application form section.)

why the heck you getting up at 8:30am?!?!?!
GOODNESS

Should I be getting before that, or after? I should wake up at 7am!

seadrop said...

yeah and perhaps next time you should wake me up because i sleep too much i guess...

Ali said...

Isn't the segment (in the Wiggles) 'Wake up Jeff'? If it is, how applicible to your convsation above! =D

Isn't Bert Newton on around that time? Bert rocks.

And thanks for the info. But I don't think we're going to get broadband anytime soon.

Well, Jeff is sleeping, yes. But he's also missing. So the other Wiggle has to guess where Jeff is first, and the camera will zoom into him, and he'll be sleeping. So they're shout 'wake up Jeff!' Here're the lyrics lol

Bert is funny. But half the show is advertisement/infomercial presentations, it's so embarrassing!

So there's more abundant evidence that SS is for adults. I just watched this hilarious skit involving Grover and his bald-blue-guy-in-suit customer at the restaurant. But this time, the blue guy is at the park, sitting on the bench, and eating his takeaway lunch.

So Grover comes along in a guitar and starts disturbing him by playing music.

And the guy says, "Of all the parks in the world, I had to choose this one."

A clear and present reference to the 1942 film Casablanca where Ric says, "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine." So yes, kids obviously won't get this!
