Posted by Dennis Velasco
Categories: Cable, Editorial, Gossip, News,

First of all, congratulations to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.  She gave birth to a beautiful (and considering the genes, this is more than a figure of speech) bouncing baby girl - Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt.  Shiloh, welcome to the beginning of a strange life.  And word of advice, when all of you get older, Maddox and Zahara will probably hate you because you’ll be the only “legit” kid and actually look like mommy and daddy, but …

While it’s a good bet that the popular family drama Gilmore Girls will continue into a seventh season on the new CW network, it’s an absolute certainty it will be doing so without its creators and long-time writers and producers, Daniel Palladino and Amy Sherman-Palladino. Sources fear that fans will rebel, but perhaps there isn’t as much to worry about as they may think. Fans have not been pleased with the husband/wife creative team for …

When an NBC comedy is good, it’s frequently very good.  Just for openers, I’m thnking Frasier, Friends, and Seinfeld.  Other times, NBC’s good comedies are simply good.  In this case, my mind turns toward Scrubs, My Name is Earl, and The Office.  On the flip side, when an NBC sitcom is bad, it’s likely to be god-awful.  Couplings and Four Kings are two fairly recent examples.  Last month, their rank was joined by Teachers, a situation …

Peabody Award Winner: South Park!

Is the sky falling? Did hell just freeze over? No doubt some stuffy television viewers think so. An illustrious Peabody award, long respected for recognizing the best in television writing, has been given to South Park. That’s right; one of the raunchiest, naughtiest shows on TV has received the award long known for choosing the most dignified, uplifting, respectable television writing. And now that includes…South Park? We only have one question: what took so long …

The Cancellation Of Rollergirls and Why America Hates Bad Girls

The recent cancellation of the reality show Rollergirls wasn’t a huge shock, but it was a huge disappointment. The show follows the triumphs and crises of several all-women teams competing in the intense sport of Roller Derby. There isn’t a shrinking flower among the bunch: these women are tough, both physically and mentally, and will quite literally knock anyone to the ground who gets in their way. They are, in short, true “Bad Girls.” No wonder …

Freddie: Freddie And The Hot Mom

Following last night’s Eva Longoria festooned 100th episode of The George Lopez Show, I looked again at Freddie, another ABC-TV Latino comedy. This one is in its freshman year and stars Freddie Prinze Jr. From the same team that gave us the George Lopez and Drew Carey sitcoms, Freddie exhibits the aforementioned series’ flaws, too. The stories are simple and tired, reminiscent of American Vaudeville sketches, and the dialogue is dull. Charming, handsome, and talented, Prinze …

Deal or No Deal?  I’m in.

Deal me in for Deal or No Deal.  Why?  I don’t know.  I’m somewhat embarrassed to be hooked on a game show determined by random selection, and lorded over by one, recurring question, “Deal or No Deal?” Since childhood, I’ve only succumbed to game shows twice before.  I’m smitten by the syndicated Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? because I’m a trivia buff, and I find Meredith Viera extremely charming. And there was Weakest Link.  I …

24: In Need Of More Storylines

It’s no secret that the producers of 24 are still masterminding the end of their season even after the premiere has aired.  So there comes an hour during every ‘day’ when the writers were clearly in need of a time filler.  Previous memorable ‘time fillers’ would include the Kim/cougar and Kim/convenience store robbery plotlines.  As for this season?  I think the show hit another one of those low moments this week with the incredibly stupid Shari/Miles …

American Idol 5: Chris Daughtry Masters the Covers

Two weeks ago, I told everyone how extremely upset I was at the judges for not realizing that Chris Daughtry had ripped off the Red Hot Chili Peppers with his rendition of ‘Higher Ground’.  And no—it was not because I thought the performance was necessarily bad.  It was because the judges gave him props for making the song ‘his own’. Last week I said I was hesitant about giving Chris a compliment because I wasn’t entirely …

Watching Movies on Television

Posted by Christopher Stone
Categories: Cable, Editorial,

I stopped watching movies on broadcast television when I moved out of my parents’ home and into an apartment with basic cable. To me, motion pictures are art.  Even a godawful movie is art, if bad art.  I equate them to bad paintings.  You know the ones that I mean: those huge canvases, empty except for a black dot in the middle.  Tone-y art galleries peddle them for about $7500.00 a pop. I don’t want the …
