Comedy from Down Under
Who ever realized Aussies and New Zealanders were hilarious deserves an award. Bringing them to my television in the United States has all around been a wonderful, laughter laden experience. If you’re not watching any of these shows, you should be. Flight of the Conchords - New Zealand’s top 4 folk duo is back in swing with season 2 of its American TV show. More dry wit than a desert,...
Set your DVRs
Two days until the Puppy Bowl.
Where are all the good singers, American Idol?
Dark Knight gets snubbed.
Let the bitching begin. I’m prob more upset that the Boss’s “The Wrestler” didn’t get nominated for best song. Oh and Michael Shannon was one of the few shining moments of Revolutionary Road, so its good to see his Supporting nom…too bad Heath Ledger’s got that one on lock.
Update: Here’s the video of the crazy cold open of Fringe from yesterday.
Young Love - Close Your Eyes. Listen to that...
Follow this logic.
Waking Ashland used to be a piano rock band. They broke up. Members of that band formed new bands: Big Surrender and We Shot The Moon. Big Surrender and We Shot the Moon are going on tour together. This is just like that time John Lennon toured with Wings.
As I simultaneously recorded 24 and The Golden...
Enjoy my post from a year ago tonight, again the 24 premiere falls on the same night as the Globes.
Apparently, it's hard to say "Hollywood Foreign...
I really want to post about all the great things about the Globes (Kate Winslet 2/2 then forgetting Angie, Wall E, Heath, Darren Arronofsky’s finger, Slumdog, Mad Men, Tracy Morgan, Bruce/Mickey bromance) but everyone on tumblr beat me to it, so instead I’ll make this one comment: Never let Sandra Bullock ad lib. Ps. And don’t you dare make fun of Madonna and Guy Richie’s...
It was like the "Rent" of SNLs
Anyone else think SNL was on its game tonight? The top half was quite good, particularly that Broadway sketch, the Digital Short, Weekend Update, Penelope/Liza, and NPH’s comic timing. The only bad being air traffic controllers, and Taylor Swift. Way to start off the new year right Saturday Night Live.
Quick thoughts on things.
Scrubs - It’s back. The haters can say all they want but I think it’s clear that the new episodes lived up to hype that was building around them. Or at least the hype that I had built around them. It’s Wednesday night and I’ve already watched both episodes 3 times each. Steak niiiiight. Oscar movies and year end lists - Get out there and see Slumdog Millionaire, Milk, and...
First trailer for ‘Reaper’ season two—The Live Feed Doesn’t really show much, just a bunch of quick cuts. And it’s not premiering til mid March. But boy, do I love Reaper and wish it would get some more love. It’s like a funnier, more bad ass version of Chuck—stuck on an unfortunate network, where no one will watch it. It’s going to go the way of...
liftoff: Grey’s Anatomy stole using The Hush Sound’s “Medicine Man” in their commercial from House, M.D. Ah, the mind of an aspiring music supervisor. Good call. Grey’s is always a little behind on its music picks, but then gets the credit for making them huge. Case in point, “How to Save A Life” was on Scrubs first, but Grey’s made it famous.

This week, Mr. Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting that little live show they do on NBC on Saturday nights. How many times do you think they’ll have him sing? I hope it’s a lot. Are my HIMYM fan boy colors showing?
