Episode: "Nasa Moon Landing." I try to get into fist fights with conspiracy theorists as often as possible. They're usually fat guys or 15 year olds with studded leather jackets so I win pretty easily. But, the Mytbusters are taking a more tactful approach, opting to prove the cellar dwellers wrong with nerdy scientific experiments.
Episode: "The Deep South." The south is a dangerous enough place, what with all of the cholesterol-laden foods and NASCARs whipping around all over the place, but Bear dropped himself in the middle of what he calls "Katrina Country" to bite the heads off of some snakes and piss off some alligators. The terrain:
Episode: "Head Cheese". After last week's big happenings, things slowed down for this episode, probably so they can get everyone into position for the last two episodes of the season. It looks like some shit is about to go down. Nancy:
Episode 5, “The New Girl” starts off with Pete Campbell and his wife at the doctor. The doc is smoking a cigarette and discussing fertility issues with the couple, who are having some trouble with making a baby.
Episode: "A Bomb in the Garden." I'm a little sad that our time with recon is over, even if the last episode didn't exactly hit me with a mortar shell of awesomeness. What happened?
Episode: "The Love Circle Overlap." I was disappointed with last week's episode, but Weeds seems to be back with the good stuff this week to make up for last week's ounce of shake. There's nothing like a drugr trip and an underage threesome to get things back into gear. Nancy:
Episode: "Stay Frosty." Hey, look! We're six episodes in and the war is still all screwed up. Who could've seen that coming? It's incredible how things just keep getting worse for these recon Marines. It wasn't bad enough that they had to deal with inept officers, but now they have a bunch of dumb-ass civilian soldiers out in the field putting everyone at risk.
While Comedy Central's batting average has been pretty solid as far as roasts go, some are definitely better than others. With a line-up that included Norm McDonald, Jim Norton and the rest of the regular roasters, I had high hopes going into Danny Tanner's event. Did it live up to the hype? Almost.
The episode “Three Sundays” Starts off with Peggy at church hearing the sermon of a Pastor speaking about morals. She gets up to leave, somewhat uncomfortable with the message and runs into one of the priests. He comes over for dinner with Peggy’s fam, and the sexual innuendo beings.
The episode Sticker Shock starts with Schwayze and Cisco doing a radio show with Ryan Seacrest to debut the Buzzin' single. Afterwards, they head over to Jordan’s office to talk about the upcoming east coast radio tour. DP drops off some of the 40,000 new promo cd’s that are going to be used for their radio tour.
Episode 2 “No Bitchassness” starts off with Diddy talking about how big his empire is. Sleep is forbidden, and every night he just cant wait to wake up and work. So the teams are woken up at 5am and hustled out of the house onto a helipad where a chopper is waiting for each team.
Episode: "Allison." The most fun I have ever had with one of those compressed air keyboard dusters was back in college when we discovered that if you spray it while the can is upsidedown, you can freeze things. It will also burn the hell out of your skin. Because of that, I guess it never occured to me to inhale all the crap inside of the can. Allison did, though.
Episode: "Little Boats." The run of fantastic episodes had to come to an end some time and I guess this was it. That's not to say that it was a bad episode, but with all the crap that has happened in the past couple weeks, I think it was a much needed break that let the writers do some housekeeping and hopefully set up some wild stuff that's yet to come.
Episode 2.03, "The Benefactor" starts off on a comedian doing a commercial for Utz potato chips and comparing a fat woman who has walked onto the set to the Hindenburg. Meanwhile, Betty Draper is riding horses at the stables, ogling one of the male riders with her friend.
Episode: "A Burning Dog"
At the top of the first episode “Raise The Roof” Ludacris and Tommy Lee have yet to be united. They are both sent on mysterious tasks to discover their mission…a mission of utmost importance.
This year's crop of comics for LCS was easily one of the best, but America (and the show's producers) narrowed the field down to five for the hour-and-a-half long finale. I think they were all solid choices, but the actual final show itself could've used a little more, you know, comedy. The opening:
Episode: Mexico Anthony Bourdain said that he thinks vegans are "rude," which leads me to believe that he would get along just fine with Bear Gryll who is willing to eat just about anything. For the season five premiere, he dropped himself in the middle of the Mexican desert where, apparently, they don't have In 'N Out.
As usual, Cisco and Shwayze are late for their appointment—a photo shoot on the beach. Jordan has a heart to heart with Warren about the weekend shows in San Diego.
Episode: "Exploding Steak"
The first episode of I Want to Work for Diddy does what every reality show does—it shows you incredible losers that are immediately cut lose. From a production standpoint, this is great filler that you can really only do at the top of a show. And viewers love it because it helps cement our suspicion that the world is filled with people MUCH crazier than we are.
I'll admit that I skipped out on most of the semi-final round, but I feel like it's part of my duty as a fan of fake sports to cover the finale. There are no new gladiators, no new events and the contenders aren't particularly interesting, but I'm the kind of guy who only watches football during the Superbowl and only goes to church on holidays (and even then it's only to pick up girls).
Episode: "I Am the Table." Finally!
Episode: "Combat Jack"
RecapThe Episode “Flight 1” starts off at a 60’s marijuana party where Peggy is doing some necking with a boy in sharp horn-rimmed glasses. An American Airlines crash in NY makes Sterling Cooper have to pull some of their ads for Mohawk Airlines.
Even though this show seems fake most of the time, I’m getting more and more into it.
Eureka is a kind of nerdy, guilty pleasure for me so I'm glad that is has caught on enough to make it into its third season. After seeing this season's premiere, I feel pleasured, but I still definitely feel guilty.
I have to admit that I was actually pretty late to the Weeds party. Maybe it was because I don't smoke weed, so I thought there might be some subtleties that were lost on me. More likely, though, it's because I was too cheap to get Showtime. But I'm all caught up now and I'm glad because it seems like season four is finally getting to the good stuff, like naked pictures of Nancy.
For the first two episodes I've been complaining that the bad decisions of the high-ranking officers have kept the brigade out of the action, but it's the opposite this week. Everyone's jones for shooting at hostiles has led our boys into all kinds of dangerous situations that are actually pretty intense. Impressions:
After last week's dialog-filled and action-free premiere, I had high hopes that Generation Kill would take a turn for the interesting in the second episode. Luckily, it seems that they've gotten all of the boring character exposition out of the way, and we'll be in the shit from here on out.
