Yoda and Me

Emily Deschanel's boyfriend David Hornsby is half of the Yoda and Me podcast team. Emily recently graced them with a guest-spot.

Here's the thing - the humor involved is definitely NOT for everyone.

Here's a more important thing - this Emily playing a role, just like she plays on Bones. It is NOT Emily, the person, on this podcast. It's not her boyfriend saying these things either. They are both playing characters.

The humour is a bit demential and definitely political incorrect. You might like it or hate it. I personally am not crazy about this type of humour, but my hubby is, so I am used to watch or hear such things. And you sorta get used.

I liked this Yoda pod cast, and honestly Hornsby is way better in the yoda role (he has fantastic cartoon voice) than his partner.
Emily was soo funny in this podcast.
She's so poliedric!

But I'm biased.. I love her!!

This supposed boyfriend of hers is not physically attractive or funny. He can't make it in hollywood on looks, so he has to resort to a disgusting podcast where he can't be seen to try to make a living. I thought Emily had more class. One thing for sure is, when she marries this guy, she will have to support him the rest of their married life.

I wasn't offended, but I was, admittedly, bored. Yawwwwn.

I hope they invite her back so she has a chance to shine! :-)

Yeah, it's kind of crass humor but I think it's pretty funny.

I'm a dork, but I'm mostly excited that I link I founded made it to my favorite blog! :-D

Stephanie said...

I normally don't like this type of humor at all, but I thought this was kind of hilarious. I hope they invite her back, too.

Thanks Wendy for emphasizing that Emily and her boyfriend were playing characters in this and were not playing themselves. I don't understand why people don't seem to get that (not on this blog, but on some others I saw this posted on, people *really* didn't get that.)

I just listened to it. even if is in jest, it still is degrading to women. I never knew she had a boyfriend, let alone knew what his name was. Got curious and googled him and saw his picture. WTH!!! She has got to be kidding.

This isn't any worse than Family Guy, but it is very college-humor-y. I would have found it funnier back then, I think. And clearly the "Bill" character is not condoning this behavior from Yoda, so there's that. I actually wish they had the Yoda syntax as well as the voice.

In defense of Emily's choice of significant other (as if one should actually be necessary), as a former graduate student and self-described nerd, I prefer my men smart and funny rather than hunky. I totally understand what Emily sees in this guy, and it actually makes me respect her more.

To Anonymous (first one in the comments): how is it even possible to write such horrible things on Emily's boyfriend on *this* website? I mean don't you have any argument to express why you don't like "Yoda and Me"? Your comment is insulting, and you don't even have the guts to sign it with your name...

Anyway, "Yoda and Me" is definitely not for everyone but I enjoyed this podcast a lot. It's different, it's original, and most of the times I like it when people have the audacity to shake things up. It's not degrading to women at all, it's just 2nd or even 3rd degree humour!

To Emilie79fr, I am the first Anon that you ripped, because I said something that I feel. You have your opinions and I have mine. Speaking about GUTS, I am SO SURE that the name you posted under is your real name. That's like the pot calling the kettle black.

Emilie79fr said...

Anonymous: yes, it's my real name. It would have been inappropriate for me to criticize you about being anonymous while using a fake name myself. Sorry. And what you expressed isn't an opinion. Why do you find this podcast disgusting? Answering that question would reflect an opinion, not attacking the guy on the way he looks.

Having seen the guy's filmography, I doubt he needs to be supported. That's just mean. Why is it so hard to believe that actors/actresses can fall for other (types of) people then their on-screen partners? I get Emily too, although the guy is not my type.

Stephanie said...

Like gabriel said, anyone who would actually look him up before they criticize would see that Emily's boyfriend has more credits than she does! And considering his credits include everything from writing to acting to producing and even editing, I highly doubt he'll be needing Emily to support him. I actually think they make a cute couple. And she seems happy with him, so that's all that really matters.

Rhonda said...

I didn't know that Emily was getting married, as one of the posters said. When and congratulations.

Stephanie said...

She's not getting married. That poster was just assuming that they will someday. But Emily's not engaged.
