  1. Haha I was hoping to never have to see that ‘Turkey Scene’ ever again, but somehow the cowl made it much better.

  2. Didn’t see the “worst casting choices” video but honestly, I saw Rosie O’Donnell in the screenshot and thought “what? She nailed Betty’s laugh”

    • The Flintstones sequel/reeboot/prequel “Viva Rock Vegas” was actually a much, much better film. The casting was spot on too.

      • I’ve honestly never seen it. All I know is that Mark Addy played Fred, otherwise I avoided it because it looked like crap.

        • As a adaptation of a cartoon, it is actually pretty good. People just assume it is bad because it was made years later with a different cast. Mark Addy was perfect as Fred. John Goodman didn’t really look or sound like Fred. Barney and Betty are perfect too.

          I can’t believe I’m actually talking about this movie!? But seriously, if you see this on netflix or on TV, give it a shot. You might enjoy it.

          • I’m tempted to, I just never really liked the first movie and got bored of the cartoon too after some time.

            I’ll check it out when I’m feeling in a less cynical mood about the movie.

  3. ok we get it, the screenrant editor has a hard on for conan, next time why not just link to his show on netflix or something instead of spamming the article with 4 conan clips

    • Bit uncalled for.

      Having sent in several videos myself and had them posted on the site, I can pretty much state that Justin’s a cool guy and that I don’t think the Conan clips are purely his doing. If people send in Conan clips that fit with the geek culture (videogames, comic book movies) then they’ll be sent in and posted.

    • plus Team Coco is celebrating 20 years so they are uploading all the best of

      • Being from the UK I wasn’t familiar with Conan O’Brien, so I enjoy watching them.
