It still hasn't moved forward, but we end up learning a lot about the characters by going backwards. This is the "origin" episode where Curtis, needing to change events, goes back in time where all the major and minor characters paths crossed one another. Suddenly the events that unfold change the course sideways. Can't change the past without it affecting the future. Very interesting. Think along the lines of Magnolia meets Groundhog Day. Definitely back on track without really not moving forward at all. Getting interesting to say the least.

This is slowly going down....and nowhere. I dunno. This had nothing to it other than having dig up and then bury the body again. Come on. Sigh.

My Latest Review (Dec. 30, 2011)

Having just watched this episode again, I was a bit harsh in saying it was going downhill. They needed to set stuff up for what comes later in the season and I was just a bit impatient waiting for "something" to happen. Also, I know the characters really well and the interaction between them makes more sense and because I know what the endgame of Simon is, I can't look at him as "creepy" as I did before. This episode was more or less about Alisha (Antonia Thomas) and how she is struggling to make sense of her new "powers" that really isn't that at all, but an actual curse for her. Touching people that turns them into raving maniacs trying to **** her isn't what I would call a "power". I'm giving this episode...

Books / Dean & Me (A Love Story) - Jerry Lewis

Dean & Me (A Love Story) 2005




Reading Dean & Me was a real pleasure. You don't have to even be a fan of Martin and Lewis to enjoy the ride here. But if you are a fan, then this is definitely a must-read for you. By the title of the book alone, it's clear that it centers on the relationship of both Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, both professionally as well as personally.

I knew beforehand how much Jerry worshiped Dean. I just didn't know to what extent. You really do get that Jerry loved Dean as both a partner as well as his "older brother". The respect that he had for him comes through big time and you really do feel for Jerry when the team broke up 10 years after rocking the world with their routines. It was more than just making movies, doing stand-up and singing songs. Jerry really did lose a brother when they went their separate ways and I totally understand why he slipped into serious depression afterwards.

This book is a treasure trove of a lot of intimate private moments that you have never heard of before, unless  of course you happen to know Jerry personally. I think out of all the stuff I read, the one that I really felt lucky enough to hear about was when Jerry ran into Dean long after their break-up at their favorite restaurant, and Dean was in a booth eating by himself and they were able to mend fences and reconnect as before as best as they could. Man, how I wish I could have been a fly on the wall for that.

Overall this is a very well written, heartwarming story of how a chance encounter between the two ended up changing not only their lives, but the lives of everyone on the planet. I highly recommend this to everyone. And do yourself a favor, when you're reading the book, watch as many Martin and Lewis clips on YouTube as you can. It really makes you appreciate the book all the more.

FYI, I may have not lived through their era, but I know from my own personal experience of comedy, they are without a doubt the best comedy team of all time. So damn funny it hurts.

I never saw the twist coming regarding Ruth (Amy Beth Hayes), the hot chick, turning out to be an old lady. The ending was sad. Overall the episode was a little bit slower, but good none the less.

The Misfits...again.



If you are looking for something different, fun and just cool. You can't go wrong with Misfits. I was uncertain in what to expect. My first impression was that it was going to just be about kids serving time doing community service. And then it turns into a Superhero show. Well, not "Superhero" in the same sense of what we are force fed here in America. One sets up everything as you would expect. Freak of nature event turns 5 Kids into something else all together. Definitely give this series a shot. I like it.
