Tuesday TV Preview

Tuesday, February 24 by

While Barack, AGAIN, takes over the TV waves to talk to Congress about stimulation, Animal Planet strikes gold with the premiere of Dark Days in Monkey City. Seriously, watch the preview–CGI and real monkeys starring in a fictional story with blood spraying everywhere and monkey rebellions against monkey empires. (!) Check out Stanky Snoop too, you know he's chayyyllllll. Your preview after the break. Seriously,  I bet the NY Post is loving this line-up. Because they are racist jerks.

HRG’s History

Monday, February 23 by

Parkman uses his powers to search through Noah's mind to discover exactly why Nathan is after them, uncovering some other information along the way, including the fact that a fallen hero may not have fallen so far after all. They also find out that Danko the Hunter has a far greater presence in HRG's past than anyone suspected, and that Noah's loyalties don't lie entirely with Nathan, but are still well within range of the Petrelli family.  It's a Heroes that we've seen before in a lot of ways, but it offers up some nifty surprises in spite of its many shortcomings, and it's all after the jump.

EXCLUSIVE Breaking Bad Recap Video

Monday, February 23 by

This show sort of eluded my radar so I watched the first episode ala On Demand last night. It was pretty good, which means I have 12 episodes to watch before the season two premiere, which is doable.  By the way AMC, when does Mad Men come back? I need me some Don Draper. In a Viking way.Here's the blurb: Catch up on Breaking Bad with this :90 recap of Season 1, just in time for the Season 2 premiere March 8 on AMC. For more info check out AMC TV.

Eastbound And Down EP 2: Rise Of The Mullet

Monday, February 23 by

Ok, I might have been a little harsh on this show in my review of the pilot. It seemed scattered and weak. But now having watched the second episode, which featured the introduction of Will Ferrell as a slick, fast-talking, package-tagging used car salesman, I'm going to change up my tune. This is the reason you never judge a show by it's first episode.

Rourke Speech At The Independent Spirit Awards- NSFW

Monday, February 23 by

It was a bummer that The Wrestler was snubbed last night at the Oscars. Sean Penn did a great job with Milk and yada yada yada whatever. But Rourke's performance was captivating on a whole different level. Plenty of people outside of the Academy realize that, which is why he's picked up so many other awards. The above video is a reminder of why he's so rad, and a refreshing voice among the trite, breathless acceptance speeches we're all so used to. Kate Wislet– whistle so I can point at you. Great. 

FNL RECAP: It Ain’t Easy Being J.D. McCoy

Monday, February 23 by

The Dillon Panthers reveled in another “W” this week, bringing their overall record to 4-1. On the home front, it was another eventful week down in Dillon, TX, full of relationship twists and plot turns. Jason Street almost gave up on his house-flipping project, JD McCoy was accepted as a member of the team, regardless of his age, and Matt and Julie Taylor finally officially got back together. This installment helped set the table for future episodes, providing valuable insight into the environment of Tyra Collette, and also introducing a rebound love-interest for Landry Clark. This is one of those rare moments when time cannot move quickly enough for Panther Nation to find out what happens next.

BSG Recap: Deadlock

Sunday, February 22 by

It's a bad sign when the more you think about an episode, the less you like it.  Initially I was won over by the acting, especially Michael Hogan, but when I started to break it down, it turned out that the episode really didn't hang together.   So I'm not sure if this recap does either.

Funny People Trailer

Friday, February 20 by

Aside from the obvious Seth Rogen one-liners, this movies seems to be a little more serious than Apatow's others. A few of my friends caught the cast around town rehearsing for their roles at various comedy clubs. The verdict: Awkward. Stand up ain't easy.
