Re: Grey's

Season is over at this point so I assume it's ok to dispense with spoilers.

So, this brilliant man parks his car in the middle of the road on a curve to answer his phone where there is no signal? For a show that comes up with countless ways [more]

Re: Expected More From Mamma C

Did I see correctly? Did Jen raise her hand that she would have voted for Rodney if he was in the final 3?

Finally got around to watch the finale tonight with some friends. When this happened we all looked at each other like [more]

Supergirl - Pilot Episode

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a leaked pilot episode! Yeah, it's out there for those interested.

I thought Benoist was the best thing about the show. I liked her portrayal of Kara, which was clearly a nod to Reeve's portrayal of Clark (she [more]

Focus

About a bunch of con-artists. In the first hour there's the obligatory scene when the master con man (Will Smith) is teaching his protege (some hot chick, natch) the tricks of the trade, and he's supposed to be so charming and adorable, but while [more]

Re: Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition

Went on sale at the Humble store for $2.49, couldn't resist this time. Graphics are seriously dated, natch, but that's to be expected. Still lots of silly fun.

Re: Predictions?

If it's a Rodney-Will-Sierra final I predict the jury will mutiny and vote for Russell Hantz and he will finally get the win he so desperately desired.

Next Week's Preview

I know Rodney is easy pickins as far as making fun of how clueless he is, but he continues to amaze. In the preview for next week there is this exchange:

Rodney: "Why didn't you tell us you had an idol?"
Carolyn: "You all [more]

An Open Letter

To the internet: In an alphabetical list you not use "The". So "The Good Wife" would be under "G", not "T" - "Good Wife, The."

Didn't we all learn this in first or second grade?

Re: What a Baby

Rodney really needs to go back to his mommy. I don't think I have ever seen a supposed "adult" whine so extensively about being treated badly on his birthday. Maturity wise, I would put him as stuck at the maturity level of a 13 year [more]

to ABC News,

I realize I was probably brought up all wrong, and have warped values and so on, but I think (and this is just my own opinion) that the earthquake in Nepal is just slightly more important than the Bruce Jenner

Re: Remakes Better than the Original?

I think Herzog's "Nosferatu, the Vampyre" is a great film and Kinski's performance one of the greatest ever put on film.

I liked both the 1976 and 2005 remakes of "King Kong".

Does Shakespeare count? Branagh's [more]

Re: Bluff called

That was indeed a great strategic move by Mike, planting seeds of dissent in the gang of six, while still keeping the idol for himself.

The jury clearly hates the six and loved Mike's move. If he can hang on he has the best chance to win at [more]

Re: Justin Bieber Roast

That's probably why the sentiment came off as so much insincere BS. I mean, does Snoop Dog actually respect JB?

Justin Bieber Roast

Finally got around to this. As vulgar, tasteless and uneven as always, but the jokes that were funny were damn funny. And if anyone ever deserved to be roasted, it was this guy. The sentiment is hard to swallow, but if you can get past that, [more]

Fortitude

This was a strange series. At first it reminded me of an Agatha Christie mystery in some ways - an isolated location, lots of suspects with secrets and possible motives, a visiting ace detective, minimal characterization - and then it threw in some [more]

Re: Justified - Series Finale

Just finished it. This last season was as good as the first, this show never faltered. Agree it was all wrapped up very well, very satisfying. I'm glad Ava got away.

Real Housewives of Survivor

Ok, I've never actually seen an episode of "Real Housewives" but I've seen clips and as I understand it the appeal seems to be in watching a bunch of really horrible people be really horrible to each other. Kind of like this ep of [more]
