Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Check out Reaper, even if it's not on your radar, and record the cast-shufflin' House.
Simpsons was terrible. How can you completely ruin having Stephen Colbert as a guest voice.
The show has a lot going for it. Kevin Smith directing. Missy Peregrym is gorgeous. And anything with Ray Wise as the devil should be good.
Heroes was miserable. Considering the trainwreck that was last season's finale, I have seriously lost faith in the show as a whole. Hopefully it gets back on track soon.
I love Wes Anderson, but I don't think it is a hip thing. If it doesn't speak to you then fine, I can definitely see that, but it really gets me where I itch. Despite the somewhat lukewarm reviews for "The Darjeeling Express" I am expected it to be wonderful, especially upon repeat viewings.
Whew, finally caught up with everything from last night.
I'm a very insecure person.
Sadly, the ratings were pretty bad for it. Hopefully it gains some steam, because my friends were saying how they heard it was good.
Question: Why isn't Dave "interested" in Katie?
2. Dave sees her as a mother, not as a lover
3. Dave is gay
5. Dave is at war with himself and can't be with someone who wants to be with him
6. She isn't attractive to him any more
For the record, Bateman has yet to dismiss the possibility of an Arrested Development return. "That is certainly on the table and not dead yet; I just don't know when the right time will be," he says, adding that the surging careers of fellow castmembers Cera and Arnett could actually help the effort. "Maybe by virtue of us doing well, it makes the idea of a re-visit -- whether it be in a movie or whatever -- a little bit more of a viable scenario. Because if none of us had careers after Arrested Development, it would kind of reek of 'Oh, these poor people couldn't let it go,' or 'They need to make a check.'"
I liked the fact that the guy wasn't in the entire episode, and they went the entire episode without him ever answering her calls. But I'm a little confused about something. Wasn't she the one who more or less called off the wedding? They're acting now as if he broke up with her, rather than the other way around.
Couple trying to have kids:
The guy is growing on me. At first, I thought he was overly contrived and annoying. But I feel like he has some "real" character traits that I appreciate. I can identify with some of his frustrations, not about getting pregnant, but just in communicating with his wife. The wife is still annoying. I don't really like much about her. I also don't really think they want kids per se. They seem to like the idea of getting pregnant, since all of their friends are doing it. But I don't think they'll really like having their lives disrupted, nor their pristine modern home destroyed.
Couple with kids:
Still interesting. Obviously like each other, but the romance is gone. Why? I don't know. Kids obviously had something to do with it, but it might have happened anyway. The daughter is annoying. Too mature and not very realistic. Too many shows do that to kids.
A little too idyllic. And who is the guy she has been talking to on the phone? Someone she had an affair with or something? Are we supposed to know that, or is it still something that will be revealed?
I'm not sure this is meant to be a young couple story or not. It might just be her story. In any case, she called off the wedding because he wouldn't commit to her, not because she didn't love him.
So, are you going to keep watching the show?
Actually, he probably won't, which I suppose is part of the problem in the first place.
Anyway, I didn't notice that last week's episode was any worse than the first two. I thought the scene in the bedroom where Dave tells Katie he loves her (Tell Me You Love Me!) and Katie says "But what, Dave?" and he couldn't answer her was very well conceived. It was sage of her to ask the question in the first place, and he was clearly put on the spot.
We know he loves her, but that something else is nagging. We've known this from their first scene together. That climax in the most recent episode offered nothing new, in my view.
Yay. Long past time for that show to go back to the late-night stoned college student TV channel.
