Here are some fun St Patrick’s Day and Irish themed episodes of great shows that are currently on Netflix. Watch ’em while you are readying to go out, instead of going out or whilst recovering.

Click the show’s title to visit it on Netflix.

How I Met Your Mother

(above screencaps via hheavyheart)

"I'm awesome"

3-12 No Tomorrow

In this, basically the best drinking episode since season 1’s The Pineapple Incident (my personal favorite), Barney convinces Ted to go out and get crazy on St. Patrick’s Day. They decide to live like there’s no tomorrow. So Ted has an awesome time emulating Barney all night. Of course he is later chastised by Marshall. Meanwhile Robin third wheels it by spending the evening with Marshall and Lily at their new crooked apartment.

Futurama

3-6 The Luck of the Fryish

This episode of Futurama is amazing. Though Fry has been considered a loser during his adult life we learn that as a teen he had a lucky seven leaf clover. It allowed him to best his bro at everything. Of course when he ended up in the future he lost it. Now Fry has learned that his brother took the clover after his disappearance seemingly causing him to have become incredibly successful and celebrated. When the gang go grave robbing for the clover they learn the truth.

The Office

"It is the closest that the Irish will ever get to Christmas"

6-19 St. Patrick’s Day

Jo (Kathy Bates) is hovering in the office and forcing everyone to work overtime on St Patrick’s Day. Of course they are chomping at the bit to go out and party.

30 Rock

"Passing out and cursing, on St. Patrick Day? Is nothing sacred?"

3-14 The Funcooker

The episode is set up by Jenna and Tracy getting into trouble after a snafu during hosting a St Patrick’s Day parade. This leads Tracy to act out even more and Jenna to take experimental no sleep medicine. Meanwhile Jack is launching a tiny microwave (since the network is owned by GE, just like in real life) and is frantically trying to find a new name for the contraption.

Charmed

2-16 Murphy’s Luck

Amy Adams (who would later go on to make an awful romcom about traveling to Ireland) guest stars as Maggie Murphy, an Irish woman (and former do gooder) who has recently been deemed “the most unlucky woman in the city”. This, of course, makes her a great get for a St Patrick’s Day themed magazine article. Prue gets involved while trying to get hired at that magazine. The dude from The Mummy costars as a darklighter. Piper wants to let Dan down easy so she can be fully with Leo.

Saturday Night Live (The 1990s) (Not Currently Available)
A quick search turns up a variety of St Patty’s Day themed sketches from the 90s. Not all are great. However I did find a couple to showcase here. If you desire you can find more, most likely by looking for episodes around March 17th of each year on the 90s Netflix page.

Daily Affirmations: St. Patrick’s Day

Stuart Smalley informs a camera man (Chris Farley) that he has a drinking problem since he showed up to work drunk on St. Patrick’s Day.

Weekend Update Segment – St. Patrick’s Day
with Colin Quinn

Colin Quinn tells everyone that they need to have fun without drinking on St Patty’s Day.

Bonus
4-20 Whacking Day

Simpsons 8-18 Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment

9-19 Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind

Simpsons 20-1 Sex, Pies and Idiot Scrapes
Simpsons 20-14 In the Name of the Grandfather

The Simpsons is not on Netflix (and probably never will be if they wish to keep their DVD sales strong). However, I recommend the above St. Patrick’s Day, Irish and drinking episodes. For more on Irish references in The Simpsons I recommend this site.

Guys, if I missed any great episodes please leave a comment letting me know.

“A Goof”-The Ten
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSKVJYKAZI4

“Thou Shall Not Covet Thy Neighbor’s Wife”-The Ten

Soup R Crackers on Party Down

as “I wanna dip my balls in it!” Louie on The State

as Miles on Charmed

When I was a little girl (let me enjoy this, I only get to be a little girl in flashbacks) I didn’t watch a lot of TV but I did tend to watch MTV at night. I thought it was like getting a glimpse at adults. Of course, in retrospect, it really wasn’t. It was more like a bunch of 20 somethings acting silly which can be a lot of fun. For years when I’d hear something about this show The State I remembered the title and watching sketch comedy on MTV back in the day. That’s as far as it went though. I didn’t remember the actual show at all. However it turns out I’ve been watching and enjoying the collected works of the cast (also writers) of the show for years. Recently I’ve been marathoning the show on Netflix and it’s so sarcastically hilarious. What am I getting at? This was the springboard of the fantastic Ken Marino’s career.

I first noticed Ken Marino as nice and sexy Officer Russotelli in 2000’s 101 Ways (The Things a Girl Will Do to Keep Her Volvo). I happened to be surfing movies channels years ago, came across and was absorbed by it. I recently rewatched it and still enjoyed it immensely. It’s about a young female writer trying to get by. Marino plays the only normal guy in the film so I didn’t realize he was a comedic actor.

As time went by I’d see him in small roles here and there and go “Oh, it’s that hot guy” but I didn’t know his name or follow his career. One of those times was when he played one of Phoebe’s many love interests on Charmed. Yes, I was a huge Charmed fan.

I was really happy to see him in recent years opposite his The State costar Michael Ian Black on Reaper as part of a cool gay demon couple. He also really shined in The Ten. You can watch his whole part in that film by viewing the top 2 videos.

What caused me to be so enamored with him as of late though is his kick ass performance as team leader Ron Donald on Party Down. Ron Donald is always trying to be optimistic (as with his Soup R Crackers goal) but things just never seem to go his way. I really dig him in this role because I have a thing for big doofy guys. I am attracted to a lot of different men but if I had a type it would be the big dumb guy.

Obviously Marino himself is very intelligent though. He’s a writer, producer and director. Most recently he directed the season 2 finale of Party Down. There’s a lot of talk about Party Down coming to an end after this season because it’s more of a labor of love than a cash cow for the cast but I’m really hoping this doesn’t happen because it’s definitely one of the funniest shows out there right now. Marino has been very vocal in his distaste of members of the cast leaving the show and his co-star Martin Starr has also expressed worry over the show’s future on twitter. I really hope a 3rd season somehow gets made.

There is no way I could go into all of his roles. Go check out his filmography and see what appeals to you.

FUN FACTS:
Marino is married to Erica Oyama who appeared on another MTV show Undressed. They have one child.

“My big theory is that comedy is a lot like porno now: there’s something out there for everyone.”-Ken Marino

WRITE
I think we should write Ken Marino and tell him how amazing he is. He is so underrated that while putting this together I couldn’t find any fansites for him and had to get some of the pics from his own, abandoned Myspace page.
