seems to have two modes. It either devotes an entire episode to one theme (like last week's parade of misconceptions) or it just throws plot at the screen without any real effort to tie it all together. The latter isn't necessarily any less entertaining and in many ways I prefer it, but it still feels like a completely different show. The version we get in "Home" is really just a story for its own sake rather than a coherent narrative that's supposed to mean something. Boardwalk Empire is consistently good but it's far from sharp or focused. In a series with clear aims, every plot in "Home" would be a side story in several more thematically solid episodes rather than serving as stand-alone patches in a quilt of character studies.
Constituting nothing all that new – it’s still a sitcom, mainly set in an apartment building, Friends, minus attractive male characters – the show has still been able to reel in a pretty diverse amalgam of fans based, in part on its characters’ interests.
George Smoot, an actual astrophysicist, as opposed to simply playing on television, was actually enamored of the show to the point that he contacted producers in an attempt to wind up on the show. It worked and The Big Bang Theory all of a sudden had proper ties to the world of science.
The new season premiere of “Married to Rock” is airing this Sunday, November 7th on E! Online network. “Married to Rock” is featuring four wives married to rock and roll musicians in the entertainment industry. It takes you behind the scenes of all the drama, chaos, action, adventure, and of course, the lovely ladies married to these rock star hubbies. My ex was a rock and roll musician so I can totally relate to these beautiful wives. My first glimpse of a musician’s lifestyle, career, management crews, studio recording, wild fans, and everything else related to their life can be very hectic and wild. Believe me, it is not an easy roller coaster ride.
All of that is only tangentially tied to the depiction of black folks in Boardwalk Empire, but tied nonetheless. Before delving into this, though, it’s worth pointing out that the show, despite pervasive positive comment, is pretty dull. Booze and hookers shouldn’t be this boring. And Steve Buscemi’s a brilliant actor. So, what the problem is, I don’t know.
It’s a double edged sword when television leaves one endlessly happy – if only for a few minutes. But the twenty of ‘em counting as the duration of “Who Got Dee Pregnant?” was unrelenting from beginning to end.
Just like every other episode, this IASiP begins with the gang sitting around the bar engaged in nothing more than bullshitting. It’s something we each do on a frequent basis. But rarely, if ever, do non-televised people spin a series of events from a simple statement.
Until this season, In Treatment has never done a proper in media res for one of Paul's patients. They've either been completely new to the practice or old hangers-on who really had no business staying on or returning to Paul's couch, like Laura and Mia. This season we get to see Paul with Jesse (Dane DeHaan), a troubled teenager he's been working with for long enough to have a shorthand for things they've talked about in previous sessions. Watching those segments, it's pretty clear why it's taken so long to spend some time with someone who has been in therapy with Paul for a while. Just like Paul and Jesse have a shorthand for their process, returning viewers have a firm understanding of how Paul works, so there's nothing confusing about watching him spar with a long-time patient as there would be in Season 1. After all, patients like Laura and Mia were there more to show how Paul has trouble keeping his professional life from becoming his personal life than they were to show people working through their issues.
Apparently, not as dumb as all the folks behind this steaming pile, though.
After watching the series’ first episode, it became clear that the Laura Linney starring show was devised to be slotted to benefit from the demographic engaged with Weeds – at least the portion of viewers who were women and found themselves concerned with womanly things.
Good thing she remembers exactly where her high school math teach lives – and move over, good thing he still lives there, despite being removed from his job for what apparently were sexual indiscretions involving a teenaged Nancy. Richard Dreyfuss’ Warren Schiff is a bit more creepy than necessary. But maybe twenty some odd years back, he was a dashing dude. Slide rules are sexy to teenage girls, right?
Lights, camera, action! The new season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” on Bravo television network features six new housewives ready to add a bit of glam, spin, excitement, and totally new personalities. The television show features each of the housewives different lives in Beverly Hills and brings out their real personalities. Since they are all ladies, who knows what will be in store for them. Ready for some fun-filled drama between these high-class, rich, glamorous women?
Granted, the guy does think in a manner unlike just about anyone else on the face of the earth, but that doesn’t quite explain how he’s managed to pen four books in as many years while still being able to helm a travel show. That’s pretty nuts. Maybe Gervais underestimated this guys abilities. After watching An Idiot Abroad, though, that might not be the case.
