They’ve long said that breakfast is “the most important meal of the day” and since this would usually happen after a good night’s sleep its probably 100% correct. That being said, the fun comedy feature by Jerry Seinfeld called “Unfrosted” tells the tale about the origin of Pop-Tarts. The film will premiere on Netflix in May and the Official Trailer has been shared below along with a massive ensemble cast. Take a look.

Rundown Of “The Honeymooners” Marathon On PIX11 12/31/2023-1/1/2024

Hello friends and welcome to one of our last posts for the 2023 with a favorite thing to share around this time of the year. Now if you’ve visited us in the past when the year is wrapping up you’ll realize that it’s once again time to share one of our favorite marathons with the readership audience. For the last couple of years I’ve sat down and cobbled together a complete rundown of the annual marathon of the classic comedy series “The Honeymooners” that is broadcast over on Channel 11. Since this particular post is always a popular one I’ve made it a sort of year-ending tradition. Historically speaking, the network has been airing this marathon of the series for as long as I can remember and I myself began running it for the first time when 2019 was ready to become 2020. When 2020 became the year that it did I felt that it might be a good idea to run this one again to try to keep people inside the safety of their homes. I’ve decided to keep on doing it since I’m a big fan of the show and find myself watching it whenever it happens to come on. If you’ve never managed to see this series and believe me I know some of you are out there, there is no better way to educate yourself in it than with this marathon. If you think that you have sufficient space on your DVR or cloud-based system then you should start progrmming the episodes now. This year, the marathon is showing “28” of the original “Classic 39” episodes and I think that I will program it this year myself since I will most likely be sleeping when a block of it is airing and then running around during part of the first day of the year. Start the 2024 year off right by spending it in Brooklyn with Ralph Kramden, Ed Norton, Alice Kramden and Trixie Norton and just relax for awhile while appreciating one of the timeless and still very, very funny comedies of our time. The marathon begins at 11PM and will run continuously into New Year’s Day with a pause for other programming from 4AM until 8AM. It will then pick up and run until 5PM on New Year’s Day. The rundown is presented down below in full and please know that I sourced the information from the PIX 11 website directly. If anything is different when the broadcast happens do NOT yell at me in the comments and please instead send any gripes to the network directly via their social media profiles.

Eddie Murphy is well-known and quite famous for a wide variety of roles, but when it comes to movies, its definitely the “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise of films that put him over the top. Next year Murphy returns to the role of Axel Foley with “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F”, a film that comes some thirty years after its previous installment. The first clip comes care of this teaser trailer embedded down below. I’ve also added a brief premise, casting and some artwork for the film.

The Premise: Axel Foley has returned to Beverly Hills after his daughter Jane’s life is threatened. She and Axel team up with her ex-boyfriend and his old pals, John Taggart and Billy Rosewood, to uncover a conspiracy.
