Looks like fail to me.
What was the exact date when the scale tipped from "Star Wars Geeks" to "Attention Mongering Whore-Fest"?
My vote is for about a month after "Phantom Menace" came out. Either that or C2.
I'd say when nerds started sleeping out for months in front of theaters to see movies. I'm just sayin...
Man, last night's ever-excellent "30Rock" put me about two ill-advised emails away from a Tina Fey restraining order...
"Right in the blerg!"
Georgia Moffett may very well be the world's cutest person. I thought she was nice blond, then she smiled and HOLY CRAP IS SHE CUTE. Then I saw her in her natural red hair and my exploded. It just blew up, all over everything. She is stunning. I tried finding pictures of her to link, but you really should see her smile. Still pictures just don't do her justice.
I'll save you the trouble hitting IMDB and tell you that she is the Doctor's daughter in the latest episode titled, erm, "The Doctor's Daughter". And it's cool because she is the real daughter of Peter Davison who was the fifth (and David Tenant's favorite) Doctor. She looks good. REALLY GOOD. It's not even just a sex thing; she seems to be genetically engineered to be perfectly cute.
I'm sorry, Freema, I still love you, but she's a Time Lor...er, Time Lady. She has a key to the TARDIS...and my heart.
The warm summer season does little to alleviate my despair over having to suffer through the next 4-5 months without "30 Rock."
Considering NBC's obsession for marketing synergy, I wonder if we'll see the release of Tracy Jordan's porn video game.
Overall, I'd say Season Two was at least as good as last year, with [link=http://www.hulu.com/watch/6626/30-rock-secrets-and-lies]this episode [/link] being maybe the best 21 minutes of comedy since "Arrested Development" got canceled.
Easily the best episode of the season.
Picked up the first couple discs of [link=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387779/]Slings & Arrows[/link], a Canadian comedy about the theater. Lots of good acting and if you like real theater (which Hazmatt apparently does), then you may like it. It has lots of inside theater jokes at least. There's only 18 episodes, so not a huge commitment for consumption if you Netflix them.
They really need to step up the action this season. Season 2 was incredibly boring. They also may need to drop a few characters too.
I'm currently re-watching season 1, which is great because I can FF past the Nikki parts. And I realized I missed an episode. Yay for DVD!!
There are two Indiana Jones-inspired specials on cable tonight. The History Channel airs Indiana Jones and the Ultimate Quest at 7:00 P.M., a look at the real-life historical artifacts featured in the films. Sci-Fi Channel airs Mystery of the Crystal Skulls at 8:00 P.M., a look at the inspiration behind Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Cyrstal Skulls.
Both are two hours and will overlap. Indiana Jones and the Ultimate Quest is rerun this evening at 11:00 P.M., Sunday, May 25 at 7:00 P.M. and 11:00 P.M., and Saturday, May 31 at 4:00 P.M. Mystery of the Crystal Skulls is rerun this evening at 10:00 P.M., Tuesday, May 20 at 7:00 P.M., Wednesday, May 21 at 3:00 P.M., and Wednesday, May 28 at 9:00 A.M.
I honestly thought 30 Rock tanked after returning from the strike; Liz Lemon's character became almost unrecognizable at points, and this is one show where the "hey, let's have a baby!" plot can only make things horrible.
The Tracey Jordan porn game storyline, however, was GENIUS. Judah Friedlander walking into Tracey's dressing room with that beard...damn that was unbelievably funny. "You've been in there THREE MONTHS!"
I think The Office is still cooking after, what, three seasons? Four? I loved the finale and the Kevin bits. Also love the way they write Michael Scott; he's nuts and annoying and even occasionally offensive, but depending on what you see of him and when you see it, he actually comes off as a decent guy.
A reminder for Losties: Season finale NEXT Thursday, two hours. Tonight is a night off, an early window into the long, lonely, TV-free summer.
Ginna and I had a moment of panic earlier today--she thought she'd stopped recording last night on the finale, thinking it was a rerun, and for a second, I was confused, but research on the irreplaceable internet revealed the answer.
on the Food Network,
a fun show with an energetic host, Ted Allen.
kinda like a Myth Busters for just food.
Think I will be watching this one when ever I can.
