Misfits – What Heroes Should Have Been

| January 27, 2010

Actually, that’s not possible, because British television is so much more liberal than US network television (as in, allowing swearing and nudity). So it’s more like, what Heroes should have been if it were on cable. Anyway, if you are like me, you thought Heroes sucked ass, and progressively sucked more ass as time went [...]

Dollhouse Die

| January 11, 2010

So the train wreck is finally ending. My friend’s been trying to get me to watch the last few eps, because they’re supposedly good, but I feel like, what’s the point? Now we’re just panning for gold in a drying stream, when there’s thick veins of gold (or at least consistent silver) in other shows. [...]

Defying Gravity

| August 13, 2009

Nerd out! Defying Gravity is a new sci-fi series that started maybe 3 weeks ago. I think it airs Sunday on NBC or something.  It’s about a long-distance space exploration mission taking place in the 2040′s. Visually, it’s pretty cool. It has that slick Minority Report look to it, and the CG is nice. Plot-wise, [...]

Food Party

| June 10, 2009

Wow wtf. The NY times article expired, but if you can find some clips, it’s very bizarre. It’s like pee wee herman + food + petite asian girl..

Show Recommendations [Updated]

| May 15, 2009

[Actually, if Southland keeps doing whatever it's doing, I think that could be the best show on regular broadcast. I keep forgetting it's not a cable show. Only the censoring brings me back. Lost is good in a mysterious kind of way, but sometimes the characters are annoying as hell or out of character, which [...]

Snapshot of America, In Jest

| October 24, 2008

The solution to the global financial crisis. See more Natalie Portman videos at Funny or Die I’ve never been a big fan of SNL, too many misses for my taste, but the political ones these past few weeks have been pretty sharp. “Shopping.” Ahh, Tina Fey is so awesome!

Kenshin OAV – Interpreting Motions of the Hand

| October 17, 2008

I just had an evil thought: Opening a restaurant across the street from Shinsengumi’s called Roshigumi. OK, I lied again. I’ll write about my thoughts on yin/yang and the arts later. OK, I lied. I’ve been having difficulty concentrating lately. Maybe writing will help. This originally was going to be a post about just the [...]

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia on Hulu

| September 27, 2008

If you haven’t had a chance to watch this funny tv show, it’s on Hulu, free of charge. It features somewhat edgy humor, kind of like Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, about morons being…assholes. But…it’s a little more tongue-in-cheek than say, The Office, which could also be described as a show about morons, but is [...]

Pride & Prejudice (BBC)

| September 6, 2008

I recently obtained the BBC’s televised take on Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. It’s a six-episode, nearly-60-minute-each production from 1995.  I didn’t really like the latest US version of Pride & Prejudice by Focus Feature, but I had heard that the BBC one was quite good. Actually, I randomly caught a bit of it on [...]
