I never thought I'd be saying this,
The Associated Press reported that after a high-profile, week long search, the body the actor body was found in Vancouver park. He had been missing since Valentine's Day. Reportedly, he took his own life.. RIP Andrew Koenig, Boner from the show Growing Pains.
Why? Could it be the age old Hollywood addage, "sex sells" or is there something more?
Is Pat an insatiable, demanding sex-a-holic who insists that he have a clear view of the fairer contestants? That's what I think.
Joke -- "Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me."
Joke ? -- Well fact -- " I had a show. Then I had a different show. Now I have a Twitter account."
Conan left NBC will millions in cash, but no job. He can't appear on TV until -- Well until! He has to find something to do with all the free time. And he has. He's on Twitter!
The members of the twittering public wasted no time in sharing, with the world, their comments:
"Conan O'Brien has a brand new Twitter show! It begs the question: Is Conan now on at 11:30 or 12:30?"
"The Tonight twitter show with Conan O'Brian!" Well tonight, today, tomorrow, when ever he comes on- line.
Charlie Sheen entered rehab 'as a preventative measure' . Just two weeks, his wife, Brooke Mueller, went into rehab. The two reportedly will receive treatment at different facilities.
Charlie Sheen entering rehab was expected, following a series of very not funny incidents, including a Christmas Day, allegedly alcohol related, alleged assault on his wife, which has led to Domestic Violence legal troubles, state charges brought against him for felony menacing, third-degree assault and criminal mischief.
I was going to say that it was only a matter of time before Legend of the Seeker spent some time mining the inherent drama of the banelings and the Faustian deal that keeps them among the living, but that's just the thing, it wasn't. Season 2 could have come and gone without really giving the disturbing implications of this unique variety of antagonist a proper seeing-to. All in all, the depth "Hunger" gave to this season's go-to monster did more to advance the show's themes than another canned plot would have.
A Social Networking Wizard or an army of wizards, are working their mojos for Justin Bieber -- aiding his career, keeping him up front -- keeping him at the top of the Twitter' trending list, worldwide, petitioning the likes of SNL producers to get him a gig on the show, keeping the buzz going, his career rolling! And what a roll he's on: a featured spot in the "We Are the World” remake for Haiti, a presenter at the Grammys, a performance for the President. Now, the fifteen year old takes a stage that much older musicians would sell their souls to stand on --SNL's.
The opening credits of a show can be the most important thirty seconds of any given episode. In Battlestar Galactica the title sequence did an excellent job of building up anticipation for the next hour of television, teasing viewers with flashes of scenes throughout the episode in a way that was both exciting and a little fatalistic. It revealed just enough to reel the audience in without giving away major plot twists. Caprica's title sequence consists of a flashy, descriptive set of images that more or less boil each of the main characters down to a few basic qualities. For the most part it's been inoffensive and easy to dismiss, but tonight those opening credits took the punch out of half of the episode's action.
Sorry for the late post, Legend of the Seeker fans. I found myself in a far off, mystical land to the east on personal business this past weekend so I couldn't get around to coverage of "Torn" until today. It's a shame, too, considering that it was the closest thing that Seeker could have possibly gotten to a full-blown Valentine's Day episode. The subject matter loses some of its punch after the holiday has come and gone, but thankfully "Torn" has a lot more to it than just a few steamy scenes. Like all of the best episodes of the series, this one was a contemplation of some of the major themes Seeker relies on for emotional gravity. In this particular case, it was an excursion into the nature of desire and duty, especially the way they can contradict one another.
Holiday episodes of The Office tend to be some of the strongest of the season for one reason or another. Sometimes the writers save up a barrage of their best jokes for them, sometimes there are major plot developments. What made this year’s Valentine’s Day episode so good was that it reassured viewers that just because Dunder-Mifflin has come under the purview of a disconcertingly different owner doesn’t mean the Scranton branch has to change. Despite the deliciously frosty presence of Kathy Bates as the new head honcho (honcha?), the folks from that scrappy branch in Pennsylvania are still their old, lovable selves.
Last night, Alec Baldwin was rushed to Manhattan's Lennox Hill hospital and held briefly. Why? It's complicated. The official reason is unknown -- and everything is a "misunderstanding" -- and!
Yeah, Ellen DeGeneres is funny, she is a working comic. I still wonder why she is sitting on "American Idol" as a judge. Anyway she officially replaced Paula Abdul last night, and that is that.
Earlier this season an entire episode of House was devoted to showing viewers life from Wilson's perspective. It was refreshing, compelling and allowed Robert Sean Leonard to have the spotlight after being somewhat wasted in a minor supporting role for several years. This week, Lisa Edelstein's Dr. Cuddy got the same treatment and while it wasn't quite as interesting (or deserved), the result was still an above-average episode.
Ah, tradition. Pop culture usually isn't very big on long-standing customs. No, it's more interested in the next big thing, leaving all those old stand-by rituals by the wayside. That's why I've become a bit nostalgic around this time every year. Why? Because this is the time when we all sit around the glow of our televisions and say those sacred words, "Well, that sucked. Maybe next year it'll be better." That's right, kids. It's another Heroes season finale. And just like every season finale before it, it did indeed suck and it also implicitly promised that next season will be better. That is, if NBC even grants the series another season.
