Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
I still don't know if there's an audience at Screen Jam for this yet, but here's an open thread for season premieres of The Office, Grey's Anatomy, My Name Is Earl, etc.
You may talk about any show as it airs or after; I won't be able to participate right away but might join in later.
Or, talk about anything in the arts or pop culture that you want ...
I'm interested in watching some of "Jericho" and maybe a couple of other shows (my wife will insist on watching "Ugly Betty", as she's a huge fan of the other telenovela versions), but at the moment I find myself hard-pressed to find the time to watch anything -- even Dodger games. So it's DVR to the rescue, and skipping through lots of stuff to find the key bits that I'm truly interested in.
My mother watched Smith and couldn't make heads or tails out of it.
Cinematically, it is way over-stylized, duplicating the effects in that movie with Ellen Burstyn and Jennifer Connelly about drug addiction (if you can't tell, I forgot the title). However, it is otherwise well done: Scary, good acting, good music, credible plot, good sets, dialogue fair to good. They're lucky to have such superb actors as Dana Delaney and Timothy Hutton, who are both superb at saying a lot without words.
My pet peeve would be the dark, moody lighting. If I were the father of a kidnap victim, all my lights would be blazing, all the time. People wouldn't have a chance to walk up to me in half-shadows to say meaningful things. They'd have to knock first.
That Ricardo Montalban cameo on the Office was incredible, huh.
I can't believe they got Pam Dawber to do that. Pam and Pam, very clever.
Studio 60 -- Great
Kidnapped -- Good
Smith -- Bad
Jericho -- Bad
I think the last episode I saw was when Anthony Edwards's character had cancer.
