You Have GOT To Be Kidding Me!

OK, so I had read in passing that Kathie Lee Gifford was returning to television. Of course, I just thought "Oh Jesus is that absolutely necessary?" and then moved on. But something struck me in this paragraph I read on EW.com. Let's see if you can spot the shocking news.
Kathie Lee Gifford, who parted with Regis Philbin eight years ago, was on The Today Show this morning to officially announce that she'll be co-hosting its fourth hour with Hoda Kotb come April 7.... We know she'll never be at a loss for words — especially with son Cody, now 6'3", going off to college this fall.

Cody is 18! WTF? Oh my god I wish we could hear from him now and see what he has to say about his mother and all his crap that she talked about on Regis and Kathie Lee. I thought for sure he would have jumped off a building by now. Must. See. These. Kids.

Also - congrats to The Today Show for topping Ann Curry! Can't watch the show now!

Big Brother: Team Christ

Do I need to say anything else? TEAM MOTHER-LOVING CHRIST???!!!! They are so frakking ridiculous.

Anyway, we got 2 surprising revelations from Natalie: 1. She's playing dumb. Right. 2. "My dad hasn't talked to my mom in years." No way! Natalie comes from a broken home and has daddy abandonment issues? Say it ain't so!

Two dudes in a pool swimming around together so that they form a whirlpool is gay, right? RIGHT?!

Nominated: James and Joshuah. Whatevs. Just leave my girl Sharon out of it!

God Frakking Dammit

I have a new crush. I think Katee Sackhoff, aka Starbuck, is the most gorgeous creature on the planet. As of 3:43 this afternoon.

She's the wallpaper on my work computer now. Is that weird? I can't decide if I'm a gay man or a lesbian!

The Reunions Are Always the Best Parts of The Challenges

The reunion special for The Gauntlet 3 was called "Trim the Fat." LOL! Our favorite phrase!

Jillian's face looked weird, I couldn't figure out why. Coral looked smoking hot and was her usual mouthy self. Paula's face was fat and that's good because she's anorexic.

Kenny never hooks up with girls on the Challenges because he doesn't deal with "B rate" girls. And there's no way he was kidding because it's true - they're mediocre and herpes-infected!

Frank and Jillian have moved in together. Brad and Tori have moved in together, though they can't officially say it because she's Miss Virginia and I guess you're not supposed to do that sort of thing. Ew - Rachel and Eric hooked up - ew.

Brooke and Ev are over and Brooke dated Ev's ex-girlfriend. WTF? Johanna and Wes broke up. Let me say that again: Johanna and Wes broke up! YAY! He never deserved her and she deserved better! CT and Diem have allegedly broken up, though they weren't present to confirm.

And I think I officially heart Katie. It's her potty mouth, her craziness, I don't know. Just do.

Top Chef: Not In My House

Not much to say so far this season, but I just wanted to comment that I thought this challenge was cool. The chefs had to cook for a block party using ingredients from the neighbors' houses. How fun to go shopping in people's houses! I didn't think it was too contrived either. Sure, one chick had just gone to the farmers market and had lots of fresh produce. And one chick had a freaking bomb shelter's worth of food, but my parents' pantry is like that too.

They're lucky they didn't have to come to my house. They'd get about 10 Cadbury Mini Eggs, some frozen corn, Honey Nut Cheerios, and Coke Zero. Work with that, chefs!!

Eric lost for his soggy corndogs. I don't like that his team lost in the first place, so he kind of got screwed, but oh well. At least that hottie Ryan and my White Rapper are still in it to win it!

The End of Civilization Part 371

True Confession Time: I used to read the Sweet Valley High books. I have no idea why. I'll pretend it was for ironic purposes.
When the first Sweet Valley High book was published in 1983, Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, identical twin heroines of the soon-to-be wildly popular teen fiction series (and subsequent TV spinoff), were described as blonde, beautiful, and a "perfect size 6." Now bid welcome to a new, thinner, Sweet Valley High: Random House is reissuing 12 books from the original series with a few small editorial tweaks, one of which involves the slightly awkward issue of the Wakefield waistline. The twins' "perfect size 6" has been reduced to a "perfect size 4." Kudos, Random House, for not only introducing body-image issues to a whole new generation of young fans, but proudly trumpeting this point in the press release.


I really want to go throw up now. And not just to get down to that perfect size 4.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming

First, the news that Prison Break is going to come back next year. And now this, from TV Guide. A decapitated person coming back to life is beyond jumping the shark, yes?
Prison Break fans, prepare to seriously lose your heads.

Sarah Wayne Callies — whose rather ugly contract dispute with producers led to her apparent decapitation last October — is returning next season. Full-time. As Dr. Sara Tancredi. Head and all. Seriously.

How? Why? When? WTF?! All legitimate questions. Good thing I just hung up with Mr. Answer Man (aka executive producer Matt Olmstead).

So... I take it that wasn't Sara's head in that box...
Matt Olmstead: Yeah, that wasn't.

But initially it was supposed to be her head. What changed?
Olmstead: What changed was.... once we realized that the emotional hook of Season 3 was going to be the death of Sara, when we didn't get the actress to do it, as soon as we wrote it and shot it, we realized that there was actually a way she could still be alive. Lincoln glanced at the head in the box for a split second. That could've been anyone. He wasn't about to pull it up from the hair and inspect it closely. And then we were fairly careful thereafter of references we made to that and who took credit for it and what was seen or heard, and we left it fairly [vague]. But initially when we realized that we never actually saw the character get killed, we just had that knowledge in our back pocket and moved forward with the narrative as we intended. Which was, she's out of the picture, Michael's guilt and Lincoln is freaking out because if they did that to her they could do that to his son. It really gave us a real push for the season.


The X-Files 2 Trailer

I bring you another medium-quality cell phone trailer, this time for The X-Files 2. I've decided I'm 100% for this film. I get chills when I hear the theme song - no S!!!

Big Brother: Welcome to My Nightmare

So tonight's episode was dull. And then my worst nightmare came true - Natalie became Head of Household. I want to stab her through the eye.

Other than that, Chelsia went apeshit and smashed all the Easter eggs (knowing you're going to be evicted does that to someone every year). And she had a crazy rant after she was voted out.

So I'll guess that Natalie puts up James and I guess Joshuah. But I bet James wins the Power of Veto again because he's that good. We shall see.

25 March 2008

Big Brother: More Vengeance Talk

Good old Evel Dick came back, waking up the Houseguests by banging on pots and pans. Problem was, it just wasn't as good as last year. I think one of his pots broke and they just weren't as loud as last year. Keep the pot banging spontaneous, I say. He didn't do much in the way of berating the Houseguests either. Evel Dick was too watered-down.

The Veto competition involved drinking funky things and I instantly knew James would win because, well, he's used to drinking funky things. James wins the Power of Veto and takes himself off the block.

Sharon volunteered to go on the block, figuring she'd be safe and Chelsia would go home, and sparing Adam the pain and heartache of having to backdoor someone. Never volunteer!!! It backfires all the time. Sure, it's smart to get rid of Chelsia (and thereby her alliance with James), but you never ever know! And I want Sharon to win!

Right now the competition I'm most interested in is the 3-way race for Houseguest I Most Hate. I was pretty sure it was Sheila. But then Natalie is annoying as hell. And Joshuah's an asshole. So it's really close guys!

Worst News Ever

Fox has picked up a fourth season of Prison Break. The network has ordered 22 episodes of the show, which will resume its run in the fall.

Thirteen episodes of the action-drama aired this season -- averaging 8.2 million viewers -- before the Hollywood writers strike shut down production.

Next season's batch will begin production in May, with shooting relocating from Dallas to Los Angeles (where Season 4's story line takes place).

A spinoff is still in development and will focus on a character that likely will be introduced next season.

No no no. I don't want to watch this show any more. Damn it, what do I do? I suppose I'll withhold judgment until I see who's still in the cast and what the plot is.

Big Brother: Natalie Fills Me With Vengeance and Furious Anger

Goddammit Natalie angers me! And she's the kind of twit that will probably win this thing. "Matty, don't push me away" as he's leaving the house. "It's OK, I'm used to getting close to guys and them departing." That girl is a no-self-esteem-having harpy! And she thinks she's pulling the strings and that she's out for vengeance. I hate that overblown game-playing B.S. VENGEANCE?

Nat prays, gets a sign from God about the number 8, and this somehow leads her to think that Evel Dick is coming back to the house. Funny thing is, he IS coming back on Tuesday. So how weird is that? No more making fun of Natalie - she is truly God's vessel!!!!

Hey Adam, if you didn't want Head of Household you could have... I don't know... not answered the question!! He nominates James and Chelsia. Boooo.

The Frakking Best Frakking Show on Frakking Television

Yeah, I spent the last 6 days watching 20 episodes of Battlestar Galactica, what of it? It's raining this weekend - what was I supposed to do?

I love this frakking show. Either in spite of or because of its sometimes heavy-handed religious and political allegory. It just makes me feel smart. While still being, you know, geek fodder.

While the first and second season dealt with big issues like religion and war, I thought the third season was quite different. I liked how it started, continuing with the war and the insurgency, but somewhere around the middle it changed and did a few self-contained episodes that weren't part of the larger mythology. I still liked them, but felt that the show got back on track once Baltar's trial started. And boy, does BSG know how to end a season. Each season ended so well but I really like this last season's trippiness. 4 of the Final Five Cylons are revealed - and brought together by hearing "All Along the Watchtower." Holy crap I loved that, how it all came together. So spooky. And I dare you to get that song out of your head after watching it.

As if that wasn't enough of an ending, a presumed-dead Starbuck reappears. But here's the thing - she blew the frak up. So is she just a figment of Lee's imagination? I hope not, because we have enough of those people-talking-to-hallucinations things on this show. By which I mean too many.

The other great things about the show - the characters. They are so awesome and so flawed so even when I want to hate one for doing something, that person is so awesome the next minute that I can't. I love them all for different reasons. Every episode it's a new favorite character: Tigh, Roslin, The Chief, Gaeta, Baltar, Starbuck. Maybe there's only one annoyance: yes, I'm talking to you, Helo. But then I gotta love him for being a big, dumb himbo. And I liked him so much the first season trapped on Caprica that I forgive his seeming irrelevance now.

At any rate, I can't wait to finally watch this show live and not have to hide from spoilers any longer.

The Greatest Four Seconds of Television

Ever. This one is dedicated to Mike, who loves Tigh as much as I do. And not in a gay way.

The Gauntlet: You Didn't Cut the Fat

All that talk from the Veterans about "cutting the fat" when it came to the girls. How about cutting the literal fat? They end up losing because big fat Eric practically dies during the final challenge.

But first, we had Adam vs. Danny to see who could get to the final. Adam KICKS DANNY'S ASS and becomes my new hero. Me hate Danny.

It was 6 Rookies vs. 10 Veterans in the final. CT was just harping on Eric while he's half-drowning and then stumbling and bumbling while they're running. Really everyone was berating him - except for Brad. Brad's a good kid. Everybody else is heartless, I guess that's not a big surprise.

So the Vets lose Eric to the hospital, but then they pull ahead of the Rookies because the Rookies can't dig a chest out of the sand. So they finish first. Except... they didn't have all their teammates and so they lose. Rookies win. The Vets were such assholes that I'm glad I guess. If they had just concentrated on the real problem (Eric) instead of the girls they would have won.

This finale was good but the season as a whole kind of blew. What do we need to make the next Gauntlet/Challenge better? Tina? Veronica? Dare I say it - the Miz?


Executive producer David Eick told SCI FI Wire that he's working on a pilot script for a proposed TV series based on Children of Men, P.D. James' SF novel, which also inspired Alfonso Cuaron's 2006 film of the same name.

"It's really taking root more in the origins of the novels in that it will focus on the cultural movement in which young people become the society's utter focus," Eick said in an interview at SCI FI Channel's upfront presentation to advertisers in New York on March 18.

Eick added that Children of Men will question how society defines responsibility, freedom and a sense of values when it doesn't necessarily believe humans will survive as a species. "So it's a very compelling, I think, human question that science fiction has always explored extremely provocatively," he said. "It's not really a war show like the movie was. It's more an exploration of that issue."

Eick is writing Children of Men now, even as he closes out SCI FI Channel's original series Battlestar Galactica and prepares for production on SCI FI's recently green-lighted prequel series Caprica.

Hmmmm. I'm going to keep this show on my radar. Children of Men the movie was freaking incredible. But bleak. BSG is bleak most of the time. So I'm assuming I can look forward to another depressing show! Sounds like it could be good though....

Lost: Let's Take a Few Weeks Off, K?

At first I was all DAGGER! because Lost won't be back til April 24. But really it needs a break because it's been dragging lately. I guess this was the last episode before the writers' strike and it would have really sucked if this had been the season finale.

It was all about Michael. We learn that he and Walt made it back home after escaping the island. But things must not have been good for Michael, as he pins a suicide note to his chest and rams his car into a dumpster. No one likes a quitter, Michael. He survives.

Tom (one of The Others who I think died, yes?) found Michael in an alley and told him, "You can't kill yourself, the island won't let you." He's right because Michael tries to shoot himself a couple times and the gun jams.

Tom, who apparently favors the menfolk (nice), tells Michael that Widmore staged the Oceanic 815 wreckage with some dead Thai people and an old plane. He asks Michael to be an undercover brother on Widmore's freighter (which is out looking for the island) - in order to kill everyone on board. What's Michael's gain in this? Alleviating his guilt for killing those chicks on the island, which he apparently confessed to Walt, and which Walt now hates him for.

So that's how Michael ended up working on the freighter as Kevin Johnson. Ben calls him at one point but I can't remember what he said, some B.S. about not killing everyone on the ship because some are innocent. I guess he was awaiting further orders.

Back on the island next to nothing happened. Ben sent Rousseau, their daughter, and her boyfriend to "the Temple". Boyfriend gets shot. Rousseau gets shot (dagger!). Alex surrenders yelling "I'm Ben's daughter!" Lame-ass ending no. 159.

The preview looked good - the war is on!! It better be!

20 March 2008

Big Brother: Boo Hoo

Julie opens the show rocking another outfit too young for her - this flouncy skirt, knee-high boots and ribbed tights.

Matt opens the show by crying like a baby... repeatedly. LOL. He decided to try to get pity votes to save himself. "I don't want to be alone in the Sequester House on my birthday." Ah, the old Birthday Defense. Of course my girls Chelsia and Sharon don't fall for that.

James had all the power this week! Head of Household, Power of Veto, and now he gets to cast the tie-breaking vote. Bye-bye Matty. Will Natalie be less annoying now?

Adam becomes HoH, in typical Adam style, by guessing.

We also got a bonus bit of catch-up with Dick and Daniele from last year, like we needed that. I totally called what the situation was going to be. He's trying to buy her love (look at the new car my Dad bought me; my Dad took me on a trip to Europe) and she clearly wants nothing to do with him. She always looks like she wants to physically get away from him when she's forced to sit next to him, and he desperately wants her to love him. Poor Dick.

19 March 2008

Big Brother

Last night, we got another installment of "Bible Buddies". This time they mostly discussed the Bible as it relates to Indiana Jones. But I did have to laugh out loud at Adam's response to the question of where the ark of the covenant is: "History's mysteries, dude." I think I'm going to be using that one myself.

James won the Power of Veto. Right away I was like, "it would be great if he backdoored Matt." Well, it was great because he backdoored Matt. Matt seemed calm about the whole thing, like he expected it. The look on Natalie's face was great.

I've decided Sharon needs to win this game. She's really good at seeing through people's B.S. and playing them well. And she was so giddy during the veto ceremony when she knew what was coming - it was adorable!

Nicely played, James. Now it's Ryan and Matt on the block and I gotta figure Matt will be gone. He was actually crying about it in the Diary Room! Natalie's comment in the Diary Room: "God will avenge me!" History's mysteries, dude.

I Love To Fly

You may not know this about me, but I love to fly. Not in the Foo Fighters/Nathan Petrelli way. No, I like to fly in airplanes. I love the whole experience, from the airport to the snacks to the landing.

Normally, I have to pay extra for the attention the woman in this story received. I don't know why she's suing - she should be paying for this treatment! And she's only 21. Jesus, kid, lighten up.
A 21-year-old Harris County woman filed a lawsuit against American Airlines Monday, alleging her trip to visit family and friends in Los Angeles last spring break turned X-rated.

The $200,000 suit claims a passenger masturbated in the seat next to Centava Dozier on a flight from DFW International Airport to Los Angeles during Dozier's spring break in 2007.

Dozier said she was sitting on an unoccupied row of the plane when it took off and fell asleep. When she woke up, she found a stuck substance in her hair and a man masturbating in the seat next to her.

In the lawsuit, Dozier said she asked airline workers for help and asked that the man, who was not sitting in his assigned seat, be removed, but did not receive any help from the staff aboard the plane.

Officials with American Airlines have maintained that their employees took appropriate action.

The man was arrested when the plane landed.

Two Girls Come Into This World....

One destined to be the hottest piece of ass to ever walk the planet. The other destined to be a midget with huge cans.
Halle Berry had a baby girl Sunday and "is doing great," her rep has confirmed. Edited to add: her name is Nahla Ariela. Me no likey two names that end in the same vowel. Points deducted for un-originality!

Former Punky Brewster star Soleil Moon Frye and her husband, Jason Goldberg, have welcomed their second child, a girl.

Jagger Joseph Blue Goldberg was born Monday in Los Angeles and weighed 8 lbs., 6 oz. The couple also have a 2-year-old daughter, Poet Sienna Rose Goldberg.

Nice names, kids!

U Must Be Champions!

Color me amazed that my alma mater, the University of Maryland Baltimore County, has made it in to March Madness. Where'd that come from? When I attended they were known for having a silly #1 chess team. I guess they've upgraded since.

Too bad they haven't upgraded the mascot yet - go Retrievers! Also, I lifted "You Must Be Champions" from the UMBC website. I always knew it as "You Must Be Chinese."

Blindness Doesn't Keep You From Looking For Strange

Just hours after he received a standing ovation from lawmakers chanting his name, New York's newly sworn governor told the New York Daily News that he had a relationship with another woman from 1999 until 2001 during a rough patch in his marriage.

David Paterson became the state's first black chief executive and the nation's second legally blind governor almost exactly a week after allegations first surfaced that now-former Gov. Eliot Spitzer was "Client 9" of a high-priced call girl service.

Paterson told the New York Daily News that he and his wife eventually sought counseling and repaired their relationship.

Paterson and his wife, Michelle, acknowledged to the newspaper that they each had affairs but did not go into details.

17 March 2008

Big Brother: A House Divided

Mike loves Adam, let me just get that out there. He laughs at the dumb things he says. I can't stand Adam. It's not just the Crazy Eyes, he's got a dumb voice. He seems like a nice enough guy, but his voice just makes him sound dumb.

Anyway, the Head of Household Competition lasted 4 1/2 hours. James won when Natalie started dry heaving (LOL) and he told her that he wouldn't put her or Matt up for eviction. He wants Ryan GONE!

Ha ha - they made a graphic for "Bible Buddies" while Adam, Ryan, and Matt dissected the Bible. Or at least talked about how Goliath was 9 feet tall and Jacob married 2 girls in one week.

I'm happy James got HoH, I like to see revenge taken out on this show. I'm siding with his side of the house right now. He nominated Ryan and Sheila. She's the real undermining influence in the house, so that was smart.

My Other Favorite Jonah Hill SNL Segment

16 March 2008

Jonah Hill Rules My World

Jonah Hill as a Hilarious 6-Year-Old

Whose idea was it to actually stay up and watch Saturday Night Live live? What can I say, I had just found out yesterday afternoon that my boy Jonah Hill was hosting so I was butt-excited.

It was a pretty typical show - start strong and then fade away - but Jonah was good in everything cuz his delivery's just so awesome. One thing I noticed during his monologue - he has T-Rex arms. But it's all good.

I'm also a sucker for MacGruber. They're totally my favorite recurring skits.

15 March 2008

Top Chef: Chicago

Yay! A new season of Top Chef already! And it's in Chicago, which I've only really been to once but I feel like I know the whole city. I'd move there but it's too effing cold for half of the year.

This season is gonna be really white, I know that. The one black chick gets the boot. We got an Asian, a Latino or 2, and lots of whities. Including one of my favorites, Andrew, who I call The White Rapper. Because he looks like either a crackhead or a white rapper. I love his attitude and his foul-ass mouth.

Also love Asian Dale, natch. He's got a foul mouth too. Though I guess most real chefs do. And I like Richard, even though he's the new Marcel - using smoke instead of foams.

There seem to be a million lesbians this season (including a couple), but where my flamers at? Gotta remember this isn't as gay as Project Runway but it's as close as I can get.

14 March 2008

My Favorite Lost Character Returns

I forgot to mention the return of my favorite thing on this week's Lost - Jin and Sun's headboard. For reals. I need it. I've coveted it since the first time I saw it, which was probably back in Season 1.


I think I'm going to keep grilling The Incredible Hulk like it's my job. Now there's this bit of news from the director:
That scene of the Hulk and the Abomination running towards each other is really from the end of the movie, as you've suspected. But instead of a six-minute final battle like most movies, Hulk will have a 26-minute smackdown in the city between the two green behemoths.

TWENTY-SIX MINUTES?! That's excessive even for me. Don't you think you'll be sitting there watching it and be like, "OK, is this over yet? Get on with it!" I hope they prove me wrong.

13 March 2008

Lost: Back To Its Old Middling Self

This episode brought another new twist on the flashbacks/fast-forwards. We start with Sun, clearly in the future, being called one of the Oceanic Six, going into labor. She doesn't want to have the baby without Jin there. We have a comedy of errors wherein Jin is trying to get to the hospital. He arrived at the maternity ward, but here's the thing -- he's not there to see Sun, he's there to see someone for work and -- dun dun dun -- he's only been married for 2 months. So Jin was in a Flashback, while Sun was in a Flash-forward. In the future, Hurley comes to visit her and her baby girl and they go to Jin's grave, which says he died on the date of the plane crash. * sad horns*

Back on the island, Sun wanted to go to Locke's side of the island because she didn't trust these alleged rescuers. Juliet tells her to stay or else she won't survive, she won't, so Juliet tells Jin that Sun had an affair. That bitch! I hate Juliet now more than I ever did. She's a grade-A C. Jin and Sun make up, it's all good. Well, except for the part where Jin eventually dies.

On the freighter, Zoe Bell was on-screen for about 45 seconds before she jumped off the ship to her death. Wow, she and Fisher Stevens didn't stick around long, did they? The Captain tells Sayid and Desmond that the recovery of their plane crash wreckage (including all bodies) was staged. And that's why they need to get Ben. Are they saying Ben did it?

We also meet Kevin Johnson. Kevin Johnson = Michael "WAAAALT!" Dawson. This would have been more (read: actually) surprising if: A) Harold Perrineau hadn't been in the credits this whole season and B) he hadn't been at Comic-Con to promote the fact that he was coming back.

Next week: Someone! Will! Die!

The Gauntlet

First, a confession: Is it wrong that Kenny makes me laugh every week? Most. Entertaining. Contestant. Ever.

That icy challenge seemed awfully dangerous. I'm not a doctor, but submerging yourself in ice water for increasingly-longer periods of time? Not healthy.

In the Veterans Girls Gauntlet: Katie and Paula. Despite Frank's help, Katie lost (Adam was helping Paula).

Danny got caught trying to make a deal with the other team and he vehemently denies it, despite all video evidence to the contrary.

Speaking of video evidence, I loved the CT/Adam Paris fight flashback. That was a classic moment. Our first look at what a drunk meathead CT is.

Frank made a deal with Adam - if Adam throws the mission for the Veterans, the Rookies will put CT in the Gauntlet. Thing is, Frank didn't consult the rest of his team. And it's not clear if Adam really did throw the mission, or if the Vets just didn't work well together. Doesn't look like Frank's going to get his way, but then... to be continued. Oh S. (I'm sure if I paused the preview for next week I could figure who was missing, but I don't want to actually put forth that effort. This show doesn't deserve it.)

Hey Danny: Stop using the word "salty". That's my word. I don't need you using it 3 times in one episode. And then Tori used it! Dagger! (Don't take that word either.)

12 March 2008

There May Be Only One Reason To See The Hulk

This trailer for The Incredible Hulk just doesn't do it for me for some reason. It is in no way on the same level as Iron Man. I've heard that Edward Norton's being some kind of temperamental asshole and that this movie is falling apart, and it kind of looks like it.

I don't like how The Hulk looks, I know that. He's a pumpkin-pie hair-cutted freak. The only reason I will see this movie: Tim Roth! It has been ages since I've seen him in a movie and Mr. Orange rules!!

Big Brother: Today's Losers, Today's Winners

Dammit, Kim, you win! America voted to bring back Alex! (Parker came in second.)

But.... no... what's this? Could it be? False advertising on the part of CBS?! Alex wins America's vote, but now it's up to the Houseguests to decide: Do they bring back "the mystery Houseguest that America voted to bring back" or James, who they just evicted? Well, James wins and he comes back in the house. So Alex has to go back to sequester with Amanda, although hopefully they take pity and put them all together in one house because he and Amanda can't stand living together and I feel bad for the man.

Anything else that happened tonight really didn't matter, since James was brought back. I liked the part where Sheila told Natalie that Matt had kissed Sharon. Natalie instantly gets jealous and guns for Sharon. But, since she'll do whatever Matt tells her to since she's the weakest player here, she voted to evict James.

The show ends with one of those long-ass endurance Head of Household competitions that's bound to last all night. James let an F-bomb through and the censors hit the dump button too late. HA! He was saying something like, "if you F me like that again..." I hope he or Chelsia get HoH and put up Matt and Ryan, just because I like the backstabbing and conniving.

11 March 2008

Big Brother: When I Say It's On I Mean It's On!

Is Matt a great manipulator or is Natalie just that easily manipulated? I'm gonna go for the latter. All he has to do is hug her and she spills everything to him about the plans to oust him. Good lord Natalie is wicked retahded. The beauty is that the house finds out that she told. Do Pinky Swears mean nothing to these people?

Chelsia wins the Power of Veto (Ryan won the overall competition - but decided to take Sheila's 10 grand - dick!) so she takes herself off the block.

Finally some real conniving is happening. IT'S ON! Half of the house (Joshuah, Chelsia, Sharon, and James) promise Ryan 2 weeks of immunity if he puts up Matt. Sheila, in a brilliant bit of manipulating, makes Ryan aware that the house is really split in half (with her are Adam, Matt and Natalie) so he has the opportunity to get rid of someone on the other side, weakening that alliance. And she flips him!

Sharon and Her Missing Eyebrows are up against James in a shocker. Matty's gloating that Ryan picked his side of the house.

Tomorrow we also get a returning Houseguest. Vote early and often - voting ends at midnight! Just so one of the girls doesn't come back we should be cool.

You Too Can Be In the NBA

Kyle Korver makes more money than you ever will. But you have something in common - he plays defense like you would.

What more can you expect from a former Philadelphia 76er?

One Last Bit of Fierceness

My DVR didn't record Saturday Night Live this weekend. It probably thought it was doing me a favor, and it may have been, but this clip is funny. Amy Poehler does a fierce Christian! She's a hot tranny mess.

Oh Snap of the Week

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has admitted involvement in a prostitution ring, The New York Times reports.

Spitzer, who is married with three daughters, was scheduled to make an announcement Monday afternoon. Spitzer officials wouldn't immediately comment on the story.

The Times reported that a person with knowledge of the governor's role believes the governor is identified as a client in court papers. Four people allegedly connected to a high-end prostitution ring called Emperors Club VIP were arrested last week.

The Web site of the Emperors Club VIP displays photographs of scantily clad women with their faces hidden, along with hourly rates depending on whether the prostitutes were rated with one diamond, the lowest ranking, or seven diamonds, the highest. The most highly ranked prostitutes cost $5,500 an hour, prosecutors said.

Where is a Governor supposed to get his hookers - the street corner?! This Emperors Club VIP sounds like a classy operation befitting such a high-ranking government official. Good on you sir!

The End of The Wire Brings Me Joy and Sorrow

To faithful reader Mehaf, know this: the final episode of The Wire was great. No onion rings, no parallel parking, no Journey song. It was satisfying. And you should stop reading now cuz I'm doing the run down.

Cover up! There was a great scene where the Mayor was told about the whole fake serial killer thing, and they decided to cover it up. Which I was OK with because otherwise Daniels and Rhonda would have been taking the fall and they were actually innocent. Lester and McNulty had to either retire or do B.S. police work. They retired. I hope the scene at the cop bar where they were all celebrating their retirement was the last scene they filmed. Because it would have been a nice send-off for the cast and crew. And that brings me joy.

Prez! Dukie went to the school to see Mr. Prezbo and shook him down for a couple hundred. Damn you, Prez, believing in this kid! Dukie ends up taking the money to his new buddy the junkman and they’re gonna go get high.

McNulty and Daniels had a great silent elevator ride that ended with Daniels saying, "To be continued." LOLZ!

A copycat homeless killer pops up for 2 murders. I totally called that. McNulty employs actual police work to catch the guy, a homeless dude he had met with before. So they can pin the copycat murders on the mentally-unstable dude, and just kind of insinuate that he could have been responsible for them all along.

Meanwhile, at The Sun.... Scott the Lying Liar Who Lies faked a story about an attempted homeless kidnapping he claimed he witnessed. Everyone know it's B.S. – except the stupid Sun boss who lets him run with the story despite the cops' denials and Gus's protests. Gus has all kinds of proof of Scott's fake stories and lies (including Alma retrieving an empty notebook Scott claimed had all his notes in it. Yay Alma!). But, because they're in the running for a Pulitzer, the stupid-ass Sun bosses don't care. They ship Alma off to Carroll County and shut Gus up. Glad I don't live in Baltimore anymore – I would totally be boycotting The Sun due to this show. The one good thing to come out of all this: the scene where McNulty is supposed to take Scott's witness statement about the "attempted kidnapping." McNulty tells Scott that he faked the serial killer and so he knows that Scott has been lying about it too, never received a phone call from the killer, etc. – "You're as full of shit as I am." The look on Scott's face was priceless! Of course, he can't say anything about McNulty lying because it would expose him as a liar.

Lester identified the courthouse leak and all of the drug attorneys (including Levy) that the leak had been tipping off for cash. This leads to a great scene where Rhonda takes this information and blackmails Levy with it. Levy knows the cops had to have been running an illegal wiretap on Marlo, and that the wiretap would never stand up in court. Rhonda says she won't pursue a case against Levy if his clients make the following plea: Chris Partlow gets life without parole for all the murders, Marlo walks and "retires" from the drug trade. Maurice Levy has been the dirtiest of all the characters on this show and gets off scot-free. I'm convinced he's the real villain here. He even gloats to Herc later about how this case will be a big boost to his career since every drug dealer in the city will want to be represented by the guy who got Marlo Stanfield off. HATE!

The final rundown, wherein they actually wrap up the storylines, for better or worse:

Marlo put his drug business on sale for $10 million. He gets in a suit and goes to a party where he is introduced to reputable businessmen by Levy. He bails on the party, heads to the street, almost gets shot, and... well, actually I guess his story is left open a little. You see other people running his drug business, so I'm going to assume in my little world that almost getting shot made Marlo realize he wasn't immortal after all and made him decide to turn legit. Or he just went off into obscurity.

Daniels quit as Commissioner because he refused to juke the stats in the Mayor's favor. He ends up finally using that law degree.

Rhonda is a Judge. Carcetti is elected Governor.

Bunk and Kima are still doing real police work.

Michael has kind of become Omar, robbing money from dealers.

Dukie has kind of become Bubbs, shooting up in the alley with his buddy. Nooooo! Clearly the most heartbreaking part of the show.

Scott wins a Pulitzer. I throw things at my screen.

Kenard gets arrested. I don't care what he was arrested for, I yelled at the screen "Eat that, bitch!" It felt good to see that punk hauled off.

And, in the happiest moment of the show, Bubbs is allowed upstairs to eat with his sister and niece. YAY Bubbs!!! Beautiful scene. Just joyous.

I don't think I left anything out. They sure showed a lot in that final montage. Was it corny how things were all tied up nicely? I personally find that more satisfying than stopping the show in the middle of a Journey song, maybe that's just me.

Can't believe this show is over. *sob*

Big Brother

Gotta love the Psycho-esque music that plays in the background when Natalie talks about how Matt really likes her. She's such a nutjob. Also, she probably shouldn't bother with the Big Brother interpretations of the Bible. God didn't have all this in mind.

Continuing with the Church of Big Brother theme, Joshuah prayed - out loud – in the hot tub – mostly for help with his diet and getting a flatter stomach.

I love how they have to blur out Natalie's ass whenever she's just walking around the house. Put some damn pants on! This was really her show last night because she was also so sure that there were 27 letters in the alphabet. She even went so far as to count them out while she said the alphabet – and she had been counting the "and" in "W, X, Y, and Z." OMG she is the dumbest.

You know there's nothing going on in the Big Brother house when we get a one-minute segment of the flabby gay guy dancing around the house.

Nominated for eviction: Chelsia and Sharon. Question: where did Sharon’s eyebrows go?

I Hate All of You

Why did no one tell me how awesome "Misery Business" by Paramore is? Hmmmmm? So now 8 years later I catch on and have been signing the song all weekend long. Is the rest of their stuff this good?

Oh yeah, Houman did make me that mixtape that included this song. So really it's him I have to thank, I've been playing it nonstop for 2 weeks.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAA, it was never my intention to braaaaaaaaaaag.....

Wild Wire Weekend Continues *sob*

Again, this is from a couple seasons back.

Oh that Omar - robbing the money from drug dealers but moral enough to pay for his Newports. Silly goose.

Worst Ring Ever

I don't care if those are your boyfriend's initials, under no circumstances should the initials "B.M." be used for jewelry. Leave it to Paris Hilton to have diamond-encrusted B.M.

I just wanna live!

Wild Wire Weekend

I'm trying to get through the weekend without dwelling on the fact that Sunday brings the last episode of The Wire. It's not working.

This ain't a spoiler for the final season, Mehaf. It's just a great scene from last year. I'm pretty sure this was the first time we met Snoop. Snoop is awesome and funny. I remember watching this and saying, "Is that a chick?" Why, yes, it is.

Zachary Quinto on Free Radio For the Win

Enjoy the glory that is Zachary Quinto and his smile in these deleted scenes from last night's Free Radio. Coincidence that he was on the funniest episode thus far? I don't think so.


Do yourself a favor and visit the website and check out all the videos. It's a freaking hysterical show!

I love love love when Lance gets mad at Anna when she interrupts or corrects him. He is the biggest child-like idiot, I just love him. And yeah, he's a little too familiar to me.... Loved his take on Shaun of the Dead and The Hulk too. Plus his manager's take on Dark Chocolate Women.

Reason No. 57659 Why The Wire Is Awesome

Senator Clay Mother-effing Davis. Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiit. This is classic Clay Davis (and not from this season, Mehaf). Beware the swears!

More "Fun" With The Gauntlet

More of the same this week. Conspiring among the Vets to get rid of some of their girls. Here's something new: I just realized Katie looks like a meth addict. Took me long enough.

The Vets of course lose so it's going to be Ev vs. Coral in the Gauntlet. Except... Coral decides to quit the show. When did Coral become the outcast? Didn't she always used to be the leader and a strong competitor? I think Evan made some kind of point about the Challenge passing her by and her being from an older generation. LOL!

So it becomes Ev vs. Casey, who tearfully steps up to the Gauntlet. Sooo unevenly matched. Ev destroys Casey.

In the Guys' Gauntlet it's Ryan vs. Nehemiah and Ryan actually puts up a good fight before he loses.

Before that there was some drunken male half-nude wrestling. That's not too homoerotic. Guys crack me up.

Now the Vets have 7 guys and the Rookies have 2. Building up to quite a nail-biter of a finale. Not at all!

Awwwws of the Day

This is Eden. She's the cute one.

Little Alexander Watts-Schreiber no likey the water.

And I'm not sure whose outfit I like more - Posh's or her son's.

Lost: Booooo

You're not helping me out with my Scripted Show Withdrawal, Lost. Last night's episode was horrible. Dull, no great reveals, and especially compared to last week's awesomeness, this just blew.

We got Juliet Flashbacks. Flashbacks!! Flashbacks are so 2007! WTF? The only thing we really learned from these is that Ben is obsessed with her and thinks she's his. OK, right. We kind of figured Ben was an obsessive creep. Next!

The only cool stuff involved Ben and Locke, as always. Because Ben, while locked in Locke's basement, somehow got a message to Juliet's therapist. Said therapist appeared to Juliet in the jungle (and Jack saw her too so she's not an illusion?) and told her to kill Charlotte and Jeremy Davies because they were going to kill everyone on the island. So was this therapist real and how the F did Ben get this message to her? That's our Mystery for this episode.

Really, Charlotte and J.D. were at the power plant - and yes, there is a power plant "hidden" on this island - to render the gas inert so that Ben could not use it to kill everyone on the island. Or so they said.

Locke let Ben out so that Ben could show him something he had locked in a safe. It was a videotape marked "Red Sox" that was actually a surveillance tape of Penny's dad, Charles Widmore. Ben says Charles is the Big Bad who owns the freighter and wants to find the island to exploit its power.

Even the ending was lame. No shocker, just Ben walking around the compound and Hurley and Sawyer all WTF? It made me laugh out loud actually. BFD!

I also am hating on the preview for next week: "A face from the past you thought you'd never see again." Gee, you don't mean the guy who has been in the credits this whole year that we've yet to see, do you? Say it ain't so! I'm gonna be soooo shocked!


In Your Face, American Idol!

Looks like I made the right decision! Danny Noriega was the most entertaining and now he's gone.

Mike was at a seminar last night and called me after 9:00.

Mike: "Who got voted off Idol?"
Me: "Hell if I know. I don't watch it anymore."
Mike: "I didn't think you were actually going to go through with it!"

I didn't even rush to my computer last night to find out - I waited til this morning.

HAHAHAHA Idol! I didn't even get the DTs! King Kong ain't got nothing on me!

06 March 2008

My Diagnosis

I believe I'm finally feeling the effects of Scripted Show Withdrawal. Reality TV ain't cutting it for me. The main symptom: hatred for American Idol. Other symptoms include irritability and frustration.

I haven't watched Heroes since early December. I never got a new season of 24. Prison Break doesn't count. No more Battlestar Galactica available for me to catch up on. The only things I have going for me are Lost and The Wire, but the latter is tainted by the fact that it's the last season and it was only 10 episodes long.

Worse yet, the situation won't be remedied any time soon. No 24 til January. Wait - they're giving me a movie in the Fall. OK, just don't screw that up please. No Heroes til the Fall. The Wire is over this Sunday. The only thing I will get any time soon is Season 3 of BSG on DVD on the 18th followed a couple weeks later by the new season. Thank the Gods for small miracles. But otherwise I think I'm pretty much screwed, unless I want to get into the dregs of TV like CSI or Desperate Housewives when they return in a few weeks. I'm not that desperate, thanks. I think I'm gonna re-watch The Wire from Season One instead. Or, you know, do my school work or enjoy the outdoors.

The Daily Show Election Center

Their classification of Hillary's rhetoric as "the language of beer commercials" is the funniest thing I've seen in a while. The Jon-Stewart-clips ad is the icing on the comedy cake.

Gonna Get Geeky Here

I don't know if anyone out there has read Watchmen. It's really good and hopefully the movie will be just as good.

These images are pretty much straight out of the comic, which is awesome. It's directed by the guy who did 300 (and was so faithful to the look of that comic), so I think this will be good too.

No pics of Dr. Manhattan yet. Really the whole movie rests on how they pull him off. Because he's like 7 feet tall, blue, and naked all the time. So he's kinda important.

Project Runway: A Fairy Tale Ending

What a happy ending to this season!! Christian wasn't his usual cocky and confident self. It was so cute to actually see him vulnerable. It really reminded me that he is only freaking 21! Christian wins! YAY! He's 21 and he sleeps in and works out of a closet and he is FIERCE!

Christian's collection featured lots of black (I think too much) and ruffles. And feathers. Over the top, especially that insane feathered dress, but great and well-constructed. He made guest judge Victoria Beckham (yay!) smile which she never does. She loved his stuff so much. Christian + Posh 4-eva!

Rami came in second with his collection which I think suffered from a lack of draping. His colors were crazy by comparison to the others - he had some insane turquoise and fuschia! Some of the pants were a hot mess, but he had some great details on his dresses.

I actually liked, no loved, Jillian's collection. And it hurts me to say that. I think hers was the most wearable, but of course that doesn't always win out in the end. I liked her sweaters, but the hats sucked and she had a gold monstrosity that didn't fit in. I hate to admit I liked it just because she's so personality-less.

It's awesome that Christian won just because I think he needs this the most since he's just starting out. And he's fierce! And now I don't have to hear that word ever again!

Things Really Are Looking Up

Wanted Exclusive Trailer

Add to My Profile | More Videos

Must see this movie. Now. Crazy ass stunts and special effects (and I mean crazy ass, Iron Man ain't got nothing on Wanted) plus my girl Angelina? The only way this could get better is if she put on a little weight cuz girlfriend is way too skinny in this but I'll deal. She's still hot as balls. This movie better be as good as this trailer leads me to believe!

All Hope Is Not Lost

No sooner did I draft a blog entry about the current state of television (and its likelihood to not-change any time soon) than I read this story. And it brings a small amount of joy to my life. As long as they don't kill off Tony in the movie!!
Fox's 24 will be returning in the fall, after all. The producers of the Emmy-winning series are developing a two-hour "prequel" to the upcoming seventh season.

The movie, designed to bridge the two-year gap between Seasons 6 and 7, is targeted to air in the fall, leading to the January return of the real-time drama. On Wednesday, 24 producers began securing the show's core cast members for the film.

The 24 writing team is back at work, with filming on the remaining episodes of the seventh season slated to begin in April.

American Idol: Yep, It's Over Between Us

Asia'h opened the show with karaoke Whitney. Great. Thanks for reminding me why I don't want to watch this overblown-karaoke show anymore.

Kady. What song was that? You have all of the 80s to choose from and you pick that? A song I've either never heard before, or you just botched that badly.

Amanda, of course, sang Joan Jett. Her choices were that and Pat Benatar. Karaoke again.

Carly. Why don't I like her as much as I think I should? This is the problem - I don't like these people enough. So even if they're good I'm just not enthused.

Kristy Lee country-fied an awesome Journey song and for that she will never be forgiven. Please don't. And way to not-hit that last high note.

Ramiele is the only girl I like. She needs to do something more up-tempo, but she was the only truly great one.

Brooke picked Pat Benatar and performed a stripped-down version. It was enjoyable enough.

Syesha closed out with another slow song. I'm over the lack of energy. The vocal was really good though.

So I'm pulling the trigger. March 6, 2008 is a day that will live in infamy. After 7 seasons, I'm over Idol's B.S. If something good happens, it's on the news the next day and I can watch Danny and David and Ramiele on You Tube. It is an amazing world we live in.

Big Brother Shakes Things Up

Heading in to tonight's live show, the Mystery Siren was still freaking people out and Matt was telling both couples they had his vote. James called Matt on it - in front of everyone. LOL James.

Ryan and Allison get evicted and then the Mystery Siren goes off - starting now they are going to be playing as individuals, not couples. This warranted a Mystery Siren?! Why keep them in suspense for days? So now only Ryan OR Allison will be evicted after a live vote.

I loved seeing Allison jumping around, so freaking excited about the alarm and the change in the game -- knowing she'd be the one to go. Even better - it was unanimous!! I was literally laughing with glee. I guess I really hated Allison! Her sadness made me giddy. I'm evil.

Ryan won the Head of Household competition. And America gets to pick an evicted houseguest to return to the house. I'd say Parker since he got booted because of his cruddy partner. America, please don't pick Allison or Jen!

04 March 2008

Big Brother

Lord, Natalie is everything I hate about girls. She's so annoyingly needy and desperate. You blew Matt on Day Two and he wants nothing to do with you and trashes you behind your back!! You are a ho fo sho.

Dag! Matt put the moves on Sharon fast! All of the sudden his lips were on hers! But he's just manipulating her and she saw through it and wasn't into it either.

Matt and Natalie win the Power of Veto and take themselves off the block, putting up Sheila and Adam. The houseguests got a note that when a siren sounds they all have to stop what they're doing and gather in the living room. Once again, boredom makes them paranoid as they all speculate about what the siren could mean. Who knows.

American Idol and I May Be Incompatible

Something is wrong here. My opinions were pretty much exactly the opposite of Simon's tonight. And I was HELLA irritated with the show. I'm gonna maybe chalk it up to the fact that my brain has been overloaded from work recently and in general I'm no fun to be around right now. But maybe it's a symptom of a larger problem. Let's contemplate this.

The Keepers

Lil David Archuleta was great and he played the piano. Extra points for the jacket.

Danny rocked out "Tainted Love" in a fabulously corny way. I can't get enough of this kid - he's the new Sanjaya. Only I like him and think he's talented. Extra points for the purple streaks in the hair.

Michael picked a great song, "Don't You Forget About Me". Too bad Randy is an idiot and thought Michael Hutchence sang it. I'm not wrong, right? It was Simple Minds. They both might be from Australia, but only one of them died via auto-erotic asphyxiation (my favorite celebrity cause of death ever, BTW).

Chikezie needs to sing faster-tempo songs, but I liked it. Even though it was a female ballad. Whatever, he's good now!

The Poo-Poo

Luke sucked the usual ass. Don't sing falsetto George Michael if you can't sing falsetto. Jackass.

David Hernandez, who is this show's requisite gay scandal since it came out that he used to strip in a gay club. Whatever. He still sucks at singing. Horrible song choice - was that the female vocal of a Meat Loaf song? I didn't like it.

Jason sang some song I've never heard of, and I pride myself on my knowledge of 80s music. Randy said it was Jeff Buckley/Leonard Cohen. Whatever it was, it bored me and I gave up halfway in. Simon loved it. WTF?!

David Cook "rocked out" "Hello" with his horrible, distracting guitar playing. I must be really apathetic about this season because I wasn't feeling it at all and the judges ate it up. WTF?!

I wonder if I have the guts to give up watching this show..... Cuz it's really irritating me. Maybe I'll feel better in the morning. But if the girls suck it up tomorrow I might get bitter!

There Goes My Trip to Lambeau

What's Lambeau without Favre? BOO!
The Green Bay Packers announced Tuesday morning on their website that Brett Favre will retire after 17 record-setting seasons.

"Brett Favre has informed us of his intention to retire from the Green Bay Packers and the NFL," Packers general manager Ted Thomson said in a statement on the website. "He has had one of the greatest careers in the history of the National Football League, and he is able to walk away from the game on his own terms -- not many players are able to do that.

Deceit Makes Me Bitter

Driving home, I was listening to Cinemagic, XM Channel 27, when the 300 soundtrack came on. And then I got bitter. Now I know why I thought Vantage Point was going to be a kickass movie - the last bit of music (1:45 in) played in the trailer is a remixed version of music from 300. Well now it all makes sense. The only thing worse than a bad movie's trailer that is well edited to make it look awesome is a trailer that steals kickass music from a kickass movie to make it look awesome.

They almost tricked me into seeing the movie. Well done. Screw you guys, I'm going to download the 300 soundtrack.

Big Brother: Biggest Bitch

Who's the biggest bitch in the house? I was going to say Joshuah, but damn Allison is pretty bad too. She's also a master manipulator. After they have a huge fight, she says she's going to flip Josh and get him back on her good side. But maybe she's not so great because he saw through it. I think? No, he probably didn't.

Nominated for eviction: Matt & Natalie and Ryan & Allison, with Ryan & Allison being the real targets.

The Glory That Is The Wire

OMG, one episode left. How sad. And this was one of those excellent almost-wrapping-it-up shows.

RAID! Raid on the re-supply! The raid results in the arrest of just about every main bad guy (including Marlo) plus a $16 million drug bust. Marlo and his peoples suspect that Michael is the "source of information" in the charging documents (the source actually being a front for the illegal wiretap). Michael figured out Snoop is about to kill him, so he gets there first and blows her away. RIP Snoop. That girl always made me laugh.

Unfortunately, now Michael is on the run. He drops Bug off with their Aunt in the suburbs and drops Dukie off with homeless druggies. Great. Dukie is the New Bubbs. I was yelling at Dukie to call Prez. And in the preview, we do finally see Prez, but it doesn't look like things end well between them. Or at least not how I want to see them end - with Dukie and Prez living together happily ever after.

The Sun is entering Scott into Pulitzer competition and I want to freaking light the paper on fire. BOO! Gus was busy catching Scott in Lie Number 757 where he quoted someone as saying Daniels stabbed Burrell in the back. And also Lie Number 658 where he got the homeless vet's story wrong (Gus tracked down the vet's buddy at Walter Reed).

Lester got some info out of Clay Davis - follow the lawyers. He says Levy has someone at the courthouse. It would be nice if they could bring down this scumbag Levy.

In the end, Kima goes to see Daniels and tells him McNulty is making up the homeless serial killer. Daniels shares with Rhonda and they confirm that Marlo's cell phone is the one that McNulty claimed belonged to the serial killer. McNulty is so dead. Lester is so dead. Marlo's going to be victorious.

To end on two positive notes, YAY BUNNY AND NAMOND and YAY BUBBLES! How great to see Namond on a debate team with proud Bunny looking on. And Bubbs celebrated his sober anniversary and finally shared about Sherrod with the group. A nice reminder that a couple people have gotten out of this mess.

Goddamn this heartbreaking show!

02 March 2008

Semi-Pro Was Semi-Disappointing

Eh. It was OK. In parts. You can't go wrong with the Will Ferrell afro and it's rated R so you can laugh when he says mother-effing c-suckers. But it's definitely not on the level of Old School/40-Year-Old Virgin/Superbad.

Wait for the DVD peeps!
