The Big Bang Theory: Penny in a comic book store: it’s about time. But if she is going to slum it with a geek, why not have it be Sheldon? Maybe there is something there as he obvious was nerd blocking him with the Batman question. You know if the show lasts long enough it will happen. You can stream current episodes over at Innertube. You can also download The Big Bang Theory on iTunes.Chuck: That was one of the more entertaining gun fights in recent memories. And I am down with any girl who can do a little double fisting. But how pathetic is Fulcrum that they would clear a whole building with two intruders? Seriously, you outnumber them 1000:1, you don’t need to retreat.

Quote of the Week : I think Dick Cheney gets a bad rap. (Jeremy, Cupid)Song of the Week: Hungry Like a Wolf – Duran Duran (Chuck)Big News of the Week: A New Millennium Tea Party: Nothing more entertain when people make grand gestures but end up looking like idiots. Case in point when a bunch a yahoos littered the White House lawn with tea bags to protest the escalating taxes and all the bailouts. Now I am all for civil disobedience, but throwing individual tea bags lacks the gravitas of dumping crates of the stuff into the Boston Harbor.Of course the irony of the whole thing is that original tea party wasn’t about high taxes. Remember the slogan: “No taxation without representation,” the people wanted to pay taxes, it is just they wanted the representation that should come along with paying it.But that doesn’t top the most stupid tax related idea of the week. No, that goes to Texas Governor Rick Perry who suggested his state could secede from the Union because of th...

I have gotten a plethora of cool press releases have been flooding my inbox recently that you may find interesting. This post will include blurbs on My Boys, Neighbors from Hell, Jimmy Fallon, New World Order, Earth Day, and Friday Night Lights.- When I was previewing the new season of My Boys, I mentioned they would be participation in the game board decathlon and that episode is coming up this Tuesday. Then right after the show, you can head over to TBS.com to participate in a web chat with cast members Jordana Spiro (PJ), Kellee Stewart (Stephanie), Jamie Kaler (Mike), Reid Scott (Brendan), Mike Bunin (Kenny) and Kyle Howard (Bobby) beginning at 11:00 EST.- TBS is also going to get into the animation game with the announcement that they have greenlit Neighbors from Hell. No word on a voice cast or an air date, but is coming from the Fox Animation and DreamWorks studio. Here is a synopses:Neighbors from Hell centers on the Hellmans, a typical, all-American suburban family, with...
Lyrics Quiz: One Song Wonders: 80's Edition
2009-04-15 14:00:00
Earlier this month, VH1 unveiled their list of the 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80’s. So what if ten percent of the artist had a legitimate second (or more) hit. But this got me to thinking of all the artists on my iPod that only garnered one song, hence One Song Wonders. So I made up a playlist and took all the ones from the 80’s and hit random and these were the first twenty-five. And since I had an even seventy-five, you will likely see the other fifty eventually. As always leave your guesses, both artist and song title, in the comment section or e-mail me. If you are correct I will un-bold the lyric. Please keep in mind the lyrics quiz is for entertainment purposes only so please only use your own meandering mind to guess them.1. You see I wanted her real bad and I was about to give in. And that’s when she started to talking about love and talking about sin. (Keep Your Hands to Yourself - The Georgia Satellites; guessed by Angie)2. I hear your name in certain circl...

I Want My Music Television vol. XLVIII
2009-04-14 14:00:00
There have been a couple of videos that have caught my eye lately so I thought I’d give them some love since the death of Music al Television left a void for a forum on the art form. If you are interested in buying the video through iTunes, click the title link (where available). If you are interested in buying the song, look for a link in the analysis. We Made You – Eminem It has become a time honored tradition for the lead Eminem single to ultra-pop-y and insult everyone he can in three minute. And ever since The Real Slim Shady, the songs have become exponentially more disposable. We Made You is just like Better Off Ted, yeah it causes a few chuckles but there is no reason to watch it ever again. Wild at Heart – Gloriana Can’t say I am the biggest country (I much prefer classics opposed to the hillbilly moron music that populates today’s country charts) but there is just something infectious about the debut from Gloriana. And the video is just enjoyable. I ...

Let Me Just Ask You One Question: Can You Play Like Champions

Just when I thought I couldn’t be happier after hearing that Friday Night Lights garnered a two season pick up, along comes the season finale. A nice tranquil beginning to the docile sounds of Jakob Dylan with a rundown of all the coupling and the funny juxtaposition of a near empty baseball stadium considering during the football season the whole town shuts down and shows up. Of course this turned out to be a little foreshadowing.When you thought the Riggins/Collette marriage couldn’t get any funnier than Mindy’s Finding Nemo wedding vows, we get the whole white wedding complete with a mariachi band singing Peter Frampton. But my favorite part was the Taylors wonder why they got an invite because we all have gone to weddings were we didn’t really know the bride and groom but went because 1) you didn’t want to be rude, 2) open bar. With that said, how did Buddy Garrity get an invite?The big new going into the fourth season was Joe McCoy’s power trip to oust Coach Taylor ...

Kings: A little less confusing this week. Not that it matters as the show is getting banished to Saturdays which is becoming the new Friday: the day shows go to die. Caruso was first then ABC announced this week they would be killing off the final three episodes of Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone, and Dirty Sexy Money in succession. I guess this is better than making us get the DVD to see the remaining episodes like Foc always does. But it looks like I will be catching the remainder of Kings on Hulu. You can stream current episodes over at NBC.com. You can also download Kings on iTunes.Chuck: As predicted here about a month ago, not only was Orian not dead, he turned out to be Chuck’s father. But after watching Scott Backula’s “Oh boy” routine, I actually began doubting my prognostication until he showed up at Chevy Chase’s workplace. You can stream current episodes over at NBC.com.

First Impressions: Cupid
2009-04-08 14:00:00
Cupid was a show I remember seeing but not caring that it got canceled. Sure Jeremy Piven was thoroughly entertaining as a guy who may or may not have been the Roman God of Love and Paula Marshall was likeable, but certainly not must see television. Which is unlike the next show Rob Thomas created Veronica Mars. But since very few people compared Veronica Mars to Cupid (1998), it would be unfair to compare Cupid (2009) to Veronica Mars.Naturally it is fair game to compare the two Cupids. Both shows follow a dude named Trevor who lands himself in a mental institution because he thinks he is a Roman God whose case is taken on by a psychiatrist named Claire. Upon release Trevor takes a job at a bar. This time around the story gets transplanted from Chicago to New York City.From the promos I feared that Bobby Canivale (Snakes on a Plane) was going to just do a Piven but turns out to more subtle than his predecessor. Unfortunately I was right in thinking that Sarah Paulson (Studio 60 on ...

Previewing Rescue Me
2009-04-07 14:00:00
It has been nineteen months since the time Rescue Me aired a full length episode. To put that in perspective, Pushing Daisies debuted, got renewed and then canceled all in the time since Rescue Me last aired. Naturally a lengthy “Previously on Rescue Me” is warranted for the fifth season premiere. Like who remembered that Tommy’s dad died at a baseball game right when they finally reconnected? Also Tommy is in some hot water when the new chief writes him up for being crazy partly to get back at him for leading on his daughter and partly for wearing his dead cousin’s gear when off duty.After three very strong seasons, the fourth season went off the rails with absurd storylines that just got weirder and weirder, the extended time off seemed to do the show well as at the start of the season it is back to its strong self with most of the action taking part on the job instead of following the boys outside the firehouse. One storyline that keeps the story inside the firehouse deal...
The Hottest Token Hot Chick Pictures of the Week
2009-04-06 14:00:00
My sources tell me that Chuck is on the bubble and so I and some other TV bloggers have decided to make a consorted effort to bring to the attention of those that are not watching why they should watch and to the big wigs at NBC (and possibly any other networks that it is worth a Friday Night Lights type deal), that Chuck is worth saving.For my part I decided to run down the hottest Token Hot Chick Pictures . For those that patron my weekly Best of the Week posts (and the occasional 57 Channels and Only This Is On) ever week I pick the hottest screen cap of the week from the CIA’s finest and here is the best of the best.

He's on Fire
2009-04-01 13:00:00
With all the basketball I watched last month got me thinking of the greatest basketball game of all time (and really the only one I’ve ever liked) NBA Jam, this month’s inductee into the Scooter Hall of fame. I have owned three different copies in my life, for the Super Nintendo, and both Playsyation’s. Hopefully when I finally upgrade to a next generation console, there will be a new version of the game waiting for me (sadly there isn’t one yet).What makes NBA Jam great, and sets it apart from other basketball titles, is that it is a simple two on two arcade style game that isn’t bound to the five on five rules that just don’t translate well to console games. And since it isn’t bound to any rules there are plenty of fun modes like if one of your player hit three straight shot he is “on fire.” And I mean that quite literally as he is engulfed in flames and his shots burn the nets off the rims and allows that player to score from pretty much anywhere on the court, f...

First Impressions: Greek 2.5
2009-03-31 13:00:00
It’s time to go back to college… in March. Only on ABC Family. Not to mention it is technically half way through the second season of Greek . Of course, milking extra DVD money, it will most likely be labeled as “Chapter Four”. Small details aside, Greek, in its first three “chapters” was more satisfying than not and left with one big cliffhanger as Frannie defected taking many of the pledges last year with Rebecca Logan stuck in the middle.And in true drama fashion we get a bunch of plot twist as they resolve the cliffhanger with Rebecca being inducted into ZBZ only to show up with Frannie’s Iki sorority only to find out that Ashleigh had Rebecca become a mole for ZBZ to spy on their rush. How Alias of them. Stay tuned to see if Rebecca pulls off the elusive double cross as Casey finds out this was all a sinister plan where Frannie wanted ZBZ to think Rebecca was a mole. And if we are lucky there will be a steal chair involved in the swerve.As for the other Cartwright,...

Now let us play the game where I will play the role of Sayid Jarrah with Jo playing the role of a young Ben Linus.What chances do you give Chuck and Sarah ever hooking up?Scooter: This is really less a question of Chuck and Sarah ever getting it on, because as we have seen, given the time, everyone on television hooks up given the time. So it is more of a question of will Chuck the show be around long enough for them to hook up, or will it happen this season. Since Ben Silverman is certainly a candidate for a spot on Celebrity Tool Academy, you really can’t gauge him on anything unless it is a reality program or foreign show he can import. And him coming out recently and befuddlingly blaming Barack Obama for ...

Previewing Locked Up Abroad
2009-03-26 12:00:00
Remember back in the nineties where there was that kind that got caught spray painting graffiti in Singapore and it got national headlines because the government wanted to give him six lashes and even got referenced in songs by Ice Cube and “Weird Al” Yankovic? Well imaging they took Michael Fay’s trials and tribulations and made it into a series and you would get Locked Up Abroad premiering Wednesday April 1 on the National Geographic Channel.What is cool about the show is that it is entirely told through the stories of those who lived through the ordeals who provide the narration and those are the only voices you hear aside from the occasional line from the actors reenacting the situation. The stories range anywhere from kidnappings, to home invasions, to those locked up in a prison.The later is what you will see tonight as two British citizens get caught with cocaine going through a Peruvian airport. And if you have seen previous episodes, this will be a familiar story as t...
First Impressions: Better Off Ted
2009-03-25 11:00:00
Whoever said that you can’t judge a book by its cover is a moron. If you see Fabio on the cover you are getting some chick-lit porn, if it is draped in the American flag it is going to be political. In fact, if you are unable to judge the book by its cover, whoever came up with the cover art should be blacklisted.With that said, everything I needed to know about Better of Ted, I learned from the title because if that is the best title they could come up with, it is doubtfully they could come up with twenty minutes of funny. So I watched Gary Unmarried instead last Wednesday (I do understand the irony considering my initial premise) but ended up giving it a try after all of the Arrested Development comparisons.Which I could see if Arrested Development was void of anything funny. Of course it wasn’t. Just because they pluck Lindsay Bluth-Fünke and have a narrator that routinely breaks the fourth wall does not make a strong comparison. The big difference between the two shows is ...

Bruce Campbell is a national treasure even if most of the nation doesn’t know who he is despite appearing in all three Spider-Man movies (granted he played three different characters).

His exaggerated version of himself is a callow, egomaniacal hack who is hated by his co-workers, his ex-wife, and his agent (Ted Raimi in one of his three roles). The only people that don’t hate him are his legions of fans, but he’s working on alienating them too.

But it looks like people are realizing that Barack Obama is still acting like he is campaigning instead of actually being presidential by still touring the country with his Chicken Little routine about the economy, sharing his bracket with ESPN, and appearing on The Tonight Show where he made a not so funny joke about the Special Olympics bringing the ire of Special Olympian bowler Kolan McConiughey who responded, “I’ll beat you.” But Obama is spending less time in Washington than George Bush.But all the extracurricular activities look like they are starting to backfire.

After the Michael Vick incident, even the people who despise PETA had to wonder what would happen to the dogs that he and his hoodlums were training to fight. Well they ended up at DogTown, part of the Best Friends Sanctuary, a Utah based no-kill animal shelter. And the reality show of the same named last year chronicled the rehabilitation of the Vick dogs whose progress will again be featured during the new season of DogTown which premieres tonight at 10:00 on the National Geographic Channel.Some of the other stand out cases you can also expect this season are Aristotle (who is featured tonight and is pictured at left), a terrier mix who comes in covered in scabs from an undiagnosed skin condition. Then there is Rush, a shepherd mix airlifted out of Beirut, who had to have a leg amputated and who is traumatized by load songs after living through bombings in the city (April 10). And there are Haley and Hana, two dogs rescued from an underground cave in Ethiopia where strays are thro...

It's March Madness Baby! 2009 Edition
2009-03-17 11:00:00
March Madness seemed a little less mad this year, or at the very least the brackets did. A lot of mediocre teams from big conferences made it in this year which means trying to pick upsets less fun. At least that was until yesterday’s Pardon the Interruption started calling for Congressional investigation into the NCAA for favoring major conferences over small ones. Hopefully when the tournament we do get some exciting games, but the tournament selection really robbed us of man y potential Davidson like runs this year. Now keep in mind you may be better off taking the advice of your little sister, but here are my picks for this year.EastFinals: Villanova (3) over Xavier (4)Upset Special: VCU (11) over UCLA (6)MidwestFinals: Louisville (1) over Kansas (3)Upset Special: Dayton (11) over West Virginia (6)SouthFinals: North Carolina (1) over Arizona St. (6)Upset Special: Western Kentucky (12) over Illinois (5)WestFinals: Memphis (2) over Washington (4)Upset Special: Utah St. (11) over...

Can something be grandiose and boring at the same time? If so, than that can sum up Kings . The show has a look and feel like nothing currently on television and a scope not seen since Rome. But it is hard to not think the two hour premiere could have fit everything important into one hour to kill off some of the lulls.The show is a modern day retelling of the story of David (Spoiler Alert for the heathens out there: He goes on to become king) set in a parallel universe and the fake country Gilboa (isn’t that where Anne Hathaway is a princess?) who is currently at war with their neighbors, the equally bad named Gath. In Gilboa, there is monarchy les by King Silas played by the overbearing Ian McShane (Agent Cody Banks) who lives a tangled life; he marries into money to set up his kingdom (of whom his brother-in-law is the main profiteer of the war); his daughter cares too much about his subjects and continually lobbies for better health care for them; his son is a royal version of ...

Lyrics Quiz: St. Patrick's Day
2009-03-15 15:00:00
Recently I have been playing around with Genius in iTunes and have concluded that it doesn’t really live up to its name because I rarely have any, “wow, that is a great match” moments. Like when I put in Puff Daddy’s Been Around the World I’d like to see Davie Bowie’s Let’s Dance and/or Lisa Stanfield’s All Around the World instead of the generic rap of the late nineties. But anyways. It does make for a good Lyrics Quiz creator. For this month I threw in St. Patrick’s Day by John Mayer (on account that it is Tuesday). Now if it was truly Genius I would expect other holiday themed songs like Halloweenhead, The Thanksgiving Song, 4th of July Ashbury Park (Sandy) or anything from Christmas related, but alas. As always leave your guesses, both artist and song title, in the comment section or e-mail me. If you are correct I will un-bold the lyric.

But as we inch closer to a depressions thanks to an administration thinking throwing money at anything will make things better even though the reason why we are in it is because the last one did the exact same thing, the recession actually hit home this week with the announcement that BMG Music is no more.
