1) I could care less who wins. Itís not about winning.

2) Itís about the talent. Itís the journey, challenge and solution.  Not everybody can do these things. Unlike most game shows you are watching someone with luck get through the show, but watching a smart person know stuff is just as boring. 


This is why I love Survivor. A) I could care less about who actually wins and B) Getting to the end requires a lot of luck and manipulation on their part. Tic for tat, Dogg. I still would give Face Off a chance and see what it has to offer. I like the premise of the show. But I will only watch it if....

..you can name that tune in 3 notes. Now THAT is what I call a legit reality show.

FYI, just busting your reality balls for fun. It's early in the day for me here.

Tonight is going to be a bi tch for Sunday evening TV. Absolutely loving watching House of Lies, Californication, and Shameless. Tonight also is the beginning of the 2nd half season of Walking Dead. I know the Showtime stuff I can catch later. Not sure about Walking Dead.

My wife will be watching ... da Grammies

CBS can kiss my ass for the sh*t they are pulling, by actually pulling new episodes from online. Networks just don't get it at all. It's not just CBS, but all of them. Their mentality is flawed. They think they can "hook" new viewers by giving them a taste and then expect us to run to the TV when they purposely take away our options online. It won't work with me or the viewing public at large.

ABC tried this idiotic move with V. I was way into the new series for Season 1 and was looking forward to Season 2. Alas, there was no Season 2 online and I bailed on the show as did a lot of other people. TNT is now doing the same and I haven't cared less about resuming my watching habits with other favorite shows like Southland, Leverage, Falling Skies.

FX is guilty as well. They pulled Sons of Anarchy and Justified, these two being all time faves of mine.

NBC is guilty of doing it with Chuck this season.

So, CBS, get your head out of your asses because your "method" of luring new viewers is flawed. When you hook people into watching your shows online....you are hooking people that are always accustomed to watching their shows online and are already done with the old way of watching stuff on a TV. So your scare tactics will always fail with most people and then you run the risk or alienating those same people that keep your shows alive.

As great as Person Of Interest is, and it's my favorite new show this season, I won't be jerked around because you guys are idiots. And trust me, you guys are.

My 2 cents....

....which by the way will go to other Networks that don't pull crap like what you are doing. Feel free to delete this and try to bury my opinion to save face, because I know you will do exactly that.

This was my post over at the CBS forum and I wanted to make sure I kept it alive since I know for a fact that it will be pulled down. Have to save it here so that the dumb f uckers over there can't bury this completely.

Game Change - HBO



I remember hearing about HBO developing Game Change, not thinking much about it beyond that, mainly because Iím on the outer sphere of politics. After hearing a few people comment about how amazing Woody Harrelson is, I finally checked it out last night.

First Iíll say ĎVery Well Doneí. Superb acting, the story was engaging and I was never bored or confused. The other side is Game Change is another perspective like Ides Of March on the slimy backstage machine of campaigning. It was sickening to see those politicians and their team Ďmarketí a product to win, regardless of anything good for the country.

Many other reviews of Game Change are mostly positive and concentrate on the movie as a whole vs. what some people might interpret HBOís political agenda? I think for most, itís easy to pick a side. Either you thought well of Sarah Palin and watch the movie with sympathy or you hate her and confirm your suspicions. I clearly fall into the later. From the moment I heard and saw her, I knew it was a political move and it had nothing to do with me or the country.

Woody Harrelson does give an amazing performance. Ed Harris I found rather sheepish. I wonder if John McCain is really like that. I assume so. Julianne Moore seemed to have nailed Palinís character. I was also surprised at how little McCain interacted with Palin. According to the movie it was minimal if at all. Not even talking to her when she started saying things and driving the campaign off the cliff.

I recommend checking this out. If youíre like me, you will appreciate a good movie, but I thought it left a horrible taste in my mouthÖ again watching politics at work.

PS: This is a rare political comment. I never fully understood the immediate embracing of Sarah Palin. I come from the Show-me state, so I take a wait and see attitude. I saw the sparkle, the pizzaz of her Ďactingí which might attract some, but her ignorance was far more telling. So even today I donít understand followers of Palin. As the movie states a couple of times, Palin is heartbeat away from being President. Really? Thatís good? Yeaaaaa No

Unless you have  t i t s  I prefer you show-me nothing. Back on topic, Julianne was on The Daily Show a couple nights back hyping this up. I wasn't all that interested in seeing the movie, and since I don't have HOBO, it's still low on my radar. But I'm always down for anything Moore is in, so when this hits DVD I will check it out.

My friend says Hot In Cleveland is still on. This is just a side project that probably takes very little of her time.

Unchained Reaction - Discovery

From the Mythbuster guys...

I checked this out recently. Built along the same ways as Mythbusters is set up. executive produced and judged by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of MythBusters ó is a new six-part series that pits two teams of varying backgrounds against each other to build an elaborate chain-reaction contraption. It starts off slow, but as ideas are revealed, I found this pretty entertaining. I'm a geek and engineer and this stuff is pretty fun to watch.

I'll try to remember it's on. My wife would hate this.  ;D

Dream Machines - SyFy



I forgot this was coming on. The trailer grabbed me right away with the awesome products the Parker Bros. dream up and build.

Last night was spec job from 50 cent. He wants a one of kind car.

Built on the exact same premise of American Chopper with the main focus of relationships between the brothers and the rest of the crew. After one hour, the car was only half done. I have to watch another hour to see the finished product.

It's a brand new company and they have a lot of growing pains unrelated to the actual job. I found that a bit tedious. Also, while the car design is cool, I'm more interested in some of the other unique ideas presented in the trailer.

Again, I'll try to remember this is on. Guess I might have to On-Demand it.
