The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.
In this edition, a new video essay from Patrick (H) Willems looks back at the films of Clerks and Chasing Amy director Kevin Smith to see how they hold up after all these years. Plus, Harry Potter franchise star Daniel Radcliffe runs the gauntlet of spice on a new episode of Hot Ones, and an epidemiologist reviews how realistic zombie virus movies and TV shows like World War Z and The Walking Dead are.

If you’re a Kevin Smith fan, then you probably already know about the fake fast food chain called Mooby’s. After first appearing in Dogma back in 1999, the restaurant was the primary setting for Clerks II, and it also appeared in both Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. But soon, you’ll be able to get food from Mooby’s yourself, and you can support a good cause too.
Today, Kevin Smith announced that he’s teaming up with Derek Berry and the team that brought the Saved By the Max and Good Burger pop-up restaurants to Los Angeles to create a Mooby’s pop-up restaurant inspired by his movies. However, you don’t have to wait for the place to open before you can enjoy some Mooby’s meals, because Smith is teaming up with Postmates to offer a preview run of food through delivery, all in support of No Us Without You, a fundraiser that provides food for families of undocumented restaurant workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Everyone poops. It’s a truism that you can’t deny, and there’s even an entire book on the subject. In fact, there’s a whole slew of books in that department, ranging from What’s Your Poo Telling You? to It Hurts When I Poop: A Story For Children Who Are Scared To Use The Potty. Which based on the title alone scares me, and I’m an adult. For some reason, from childhood to our adult years, toilet humor amuses us for some reason, and that means we’ve seen plenty of it in the movies.
In fact, Oscar nominee Slumdog Millionaire has a pretty extensive and memorable poop scene in it, and we hope that somewhere there’s a propmaster or special effects technician who is proud to say, “I made the poop in Slumdog” and that someone is buying them a beer. Since the nominations came out, I’ve been thinking about all the other memorable poop scenes in movies, for better or for worse, and thought I’d round up some of the best for a Monday morning GeekBomb to get you going. Have your daily dose of fiber and dive in after the break.
