NYPD Blue has certainly been a hit and miss show over the years, but no one could ever fault Dennis Franz. His portrayal of Det Andy Sipowicz was a job most actors would kill for. From day one, Andy was not a likable guy. He was an ass, a chauvenist, an alcaholic and not very… read more

Apprentice 3, Episode 6

Another week, another product placemant! WHOOP! After last weeks non-product placemant challange….it just felt like there was something wrong with the world. Hooray for Sony Playsation stepping in with the challange to do street grafitti on a large wall in Harlem to promote Gran Turismo 4. Yes, let’s drop a majority white crew of business… read more

Survivor Palau Episode 2

Weird, weird episode. Let’s see, we had Angie bowl over EVERYONE in the reward challange. Young, old, in-shape, out-of-shape…good for her. And it certainly got her head off the chopping block for the potential of boot out in this episode. Koror found their flint, how I have no clue. After tons of effort though they… read more

The New York Times > Arts > Television > ‘Simpsons’ Animates Gay Nuptials, and a Debate So The Simpsons talked about gay marriage….what is the problem here? As far as I can see, none. No matter how you view the subject of gay marriage, the issue was handled pretty deftly I thought. The episode ran… read more

Apprentice 3, Episode 5

Wow, an episode of the Apprentice without a name barnd product tie-in? Was Trump not feeling well? That being said, it was an interesting challange. Each team was given $5000, a blank mobile trailer and a trailer construction crew to come up with a mobile business. Between 8 & 4 the next day they could… read more

Survivor Palau Episode 1

Yes, I am a reality tv junkie. I admit it, get over it. So last night we were treated to the start of the 10th edition of Survivor, Survivor:Palau. It amazes me that Mark Burnett can still find new ways to twist this game. Sure, we have had the “only the clothes on your back”… read more

Ah, so the mess up on Apprentice 3 that brought both teams to the boardroom was that they were both idjits. Book Smarts did an overly sexually suggestive ad (suggested by Bree of all people) and Street Smarts just did a silly, run-on-the-mill ad. All of this led to Street Smarts Project Leader, Kristen, being… read more

Maybe it’s just me, and it probably is, but The Apprentice 3 is keeping me riveted far more than the previous two seasons. The Book Smarts Vs. Street Smarts aspect of course is dear to my heart, but just in general, this is a fascinating colelction of…well…morons. This weeks episode featured a first, a candidate… read more

Apprentice 3

Tight on time again today, but I really wanted to comment on the beginning of The Apprentice 3. In no way do I think this show is the be all, end all of the world and quite frankly, I can’t stand Trump. All that being said though, this version of the series strikes close to… read more

OH NO! Animated butts!

Fox chose to blur out a bare butt on a rerun of a Family Guy episode for fear the FCC would levy a fine against each of it’s affiliates. “Fox electronically blurred a character’s posterior, even though the image was seen five years ago when the episode originally aired.” Folks…this has now reached a level… read more

Could someone, anyone, explain to me why Third Watch doesn’t get more recognition? While I grant everyone that most of TV is dribble, this show constantly impresses me with tight story lines, well rounded characters and some stellar performances. In particular, tonight’s episode was wonderful. Resolving a story line dealing with the murder of Ty… read more

State Of TV

I must be getting jaded. This TV season has left me SO underwhelmed that is amazing. Let’s take a look at a couple of my examples: Joey – Folks, I *barely* made it through the first episode. This was just a sad sad grasp at a follow up. the character of Joey worked in an… read more
