Heroes- Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!

mini-MalkovichIMO "mini-Malkovich" just isn't all that intimidating to me - they need a better bad guy.

I don't mean to be a hater but the writing on this show is so frustrating that it makes me want to hurt small animals! Why does it suck so bad?! Why do I watch you ask? Because it has such a great premise and interesting characters and has so much potential but they seem to miss the mark every episode!

What! Do they take script writing lessons from George Lucas? "Blowing up the Death Star was so successful the first time around, let's do it again in ROTJ!" Really?! Did they just do this... instead of Peter,this time it's the dude from Alias and they're copying everything right down to the painting on the floor?!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!! This time they better blow some shit up, ya know what I'm sayin'? D.C. better be in flames at the end of this season because if they all come together in the final episode and save they day by each of them getting a cameo shot of using their abilities to stop the bad guy then that it... the puppy gets it!!!

Chuck 2x14

Yvonne Strahovski as Sarah Walker on ChuckSarah's reaction to seeing Chuck "blow up" in the car

As I mentioned last time, they do such a good job in this show of playing out the tension between Chuck and Sarah ... and as I said, I'm just obsessed with Sarah in this show... bloody nose and all :)

Big Love - Keeping it in the family?

Ginnifer Goodwin as Margene Heffman on HBO's Big LoveGinnifer Goodwin as Margene Heffman on HBO's Big Love

Well, I mentioned in a recent post about Big Love stepping beyond polygamy and into the "family" arena with a little bit of bro/sis action... they nipped that in the bud pretty quick but this episode brings the subject right back and gives the Mormon "family fun night" a whole new meaning when Ben professes his love for his "mom" after catching her coming out of the shower wearing nothing but a towel... on her head :)

Battlestar Galactica - My frakin' baby... Noooooo!

A Cylon love triangle with Saul Tigh, Ellen Tigh, and Number SixColonel Tigh caught in a frakin' Cylon love triangle ... Question: so if there was a resurrection ship and a baby Cylon died, what would happen?

Chicks with gunsChick with guns, ok I'm diggin' that... but where are they going with this?

Terminator ... ?

Is this a still photo or a video clip from the show? Can't tell the difference, can ya?

I love this show but it's been dragging a bit lately... don't get me wrong, I'm all into the drama but this show is called Terminator (The Sarah Connor...bla bla bla) for a reason... BECAUSE PEOPLE WAS TO SEE TERMINATORS!!! C'mon let's get Cameron back in action doing cool sexy terminator shit! Another week or two without Cameron showing off her bad-ass terminator moves, I'm just gonna break out my Firefly DVD box set every Friday night instead!

The "I'm Obsessed with Sarah Show" aka Chuck

Andy Richter playing an evil spy on ChuckAndy Richter as an evil spy

Ok, when I call Chuck the "I'm Obsessed with Sarah Show" that could refer to the whole premise of this show but really what I mean is "I'm" obsessed with Sarah... (Yvonne Strahovski) I love that chick! It's one of the only reasons I watch the show.. sure it's a good show and has great characters and all, but Sarah is the reason why I've watched every episodes... so my review of this show is probably going to be more of an unhealthy obsessive tribute to the character of Sarah than to the show itself...

Yvonne Strahovski playing Sarah Walker the suburban housewife on ChuckAhhh yes, Sarah as the suburban housewife....

Zachary Levi as Chuck Bartowski Zachary Levi plays the character of Chuck perfectly!

Yvonne Strahovski playing Sarah Walker on Chuck....and back to Sarah....

Sarah Lancaster as Ellie BartowskiAnd let's not forget about Ellie (HOT) and Captain Awesome... bother are great characters and wouldn't mind seeing more of them in the show...

Yvonne Strahovski playing Sarah Walker on Chuck...but back to Sarah... they just do such a great job of creating the tension between her and Chuck in this show.

Terminator - It slices, it dices!

It slices, it dices, it makes julienne fries,... get your Terminator today!

The Sarah Connor Chronicles are back on ... good show ... but just an 'ok' episode this week. Interesting to watch but it didn't really do much to move the plot along - you could skip this episode and wouldn't miss anything in the story line that you couldn't have figured out from another episode...

Not much to say.. this show has gotten really weak (well, imo it's been weak since the end of the first season) ... just fun watching Claire getting shot - they should just have a whole episode of her being killed in different ways...

Heroes - Fictional town of Costa Verde, CA revealed...

Heroes Bennet family town of Costa Verde is Rancho Palos Verdes in CAThe location of the town of Costa Verde where the Bennet family lives was revealed on tonight's episode of Heroes. They showed an aerial view of the town and having lived in Southern California I noticed Catalina Island off the coast on the horizon. Since you can see a golf course on the coast I just did a quick Google Maps search for golf courses along the CA coast parallel with Catalina Island... and voila' ... the fictional town of Costa Verde is Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. ... I'm sure someone saw this on a previous episode and has already posted this info on some website somewhere but this was the first time I paid any attention to it...

Flight of the Concords - The Painting

Kristen Schaal as Mel on Flight of the ConcordsYou gotta love Mel, the crazed fan, on Flight of the Concords... she just plays the part so brilliantly (at least I hope she's just acting :-)

Big Love

Amanda Seyfried as Sarah and Douglas Smith as Ben on HBO's Big LoveThis show is already pretty wack, being about polygamy and all, ... but during this episode for a second I though, "is the polygamy not taboo enough, are they going to cross over into a bit of 'brotherly-love'..?" Fortunately they've kept that off the table - for now... well I guess technically most of those characters on the compound are all related to each other and mixed together anyway.

Grace Zabriskie as the crazy Lois Henrickson on Big LoveLois is always awesome to watch - she plays such a great crazy-psycho beeyatch!

Battlestar Galactica - Here's to Richard Hatch

Execution of Tom Zarek and Lt Felix Gaeta on Battlestar GalacticaExecution of Tom Zarek and Lt. Felix Gaeta

Well they killed off Richard Hatch this week... it's a bitter-sweet time for BSG fans. It's good to see a show have a clear direction, not compromise and end while it's on top (unlike X-Files and Alias and why Lost has gotten better) but at the same time it sucks that the show is ending. Tonight was a big step towards the end with the execution of Tom Zarek played by Richard Hatch. Hatch was Captain Apollo on the original Battlestar Galactica series in the 70's and who has been keeping the BSG universe alive for the last 30 years. - just thought I'd say "thanks Richard"

Smallville - Doing the "nasty"

Clark and Lana rocking the sheets and breaking the bed with a little bit of super hero sexWell, as predicted, Clark and Lana can put her new powers to good use and create earthquakes around Smallville - breaking the bed with a little super hero sex...

Lex looking like Darth VaderLex - what Darth Vader looks like when playing paintball

Lana getting juiced up on kryptoniteLana getting juiced up on kryptonite which will prevent her from ever being with Clark again - good! Now we can get Lois back on the show and start getting some Erica Durance action!

Lana and Clark making their last kiss a nasty oneLana and Clark making their last kiss a nasty one! ... completely takes you right out of the moment...

Heroes is back...

Jack Coleman as Noah BennetGet in if you want to live... didn't the Terminator franchise copyright that line?

This scene was so annoying... every time they cut back and forth between camera angles his staff would be across his shoulders and then down by his side. How could they ef' this up? The guy had one scene and was holding one prop and they couldn't get the continuity correct? ....Aaaaaahhhhh!
Finally, a hero with priorities - Ando hitting up the strip clubs :-)

Lots of decompression going on... everything getting sucked out like a giant vacuum cleaner. I thought decompression only lasted a few seconds...

Battlestar Frakin' Galactica

Katee Sackhoff as Kara Starbuck ThraceKara is finally getting a bit of screen time... yo that bitch is psycho!
(but in an awesome way!)

Edward James Olmos as William AdamaStay behind to allow time for the ship to get away?... doesn't make sense, there was plenty of time for the ship to get away - no need for anybody to stay behind... the captain wanting to go down with the ship maybe?

Smallville - Let's get it on...

Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang, snatching bullets out of the airWell, now that Lana can snatch bullets out of the air there's nothing to stop her and Clark from being together ... back to the days when she had powers and they were causing "earthquakes" all over Smallville...

Lana and Clark kissingsame ol' scene, just a different backdrop... yawn

LOST - S05E03

With the flaming arrows last week and the claymore mines this week... there must be some budget cuts on the set cuz' they're just thinning down the cast of island extras left and right... reminds me of the old Johny Weismuller Tarzan movies of the 30's and 40's... every movie would have the white man jungle expedition and to carry supplies, they'd bring along a dozen or so African natives that they could use to 'bump off' evey time they encounterd danger along the way... attacked by a lion, eaten by an alligator, fall off a cliff, etc... good stuff!

...and speaking of cast, this episode was a little lite on the main cast - Locke was in it and Sawyer had a couple lines but most of the regulars were missing from this episode - giving some extra time to the secondary characters...

 Alan Dale as the Charles Widmore of todayCharles Widmore - Before and After

Daniel and Charlotte find love, a little too lateI love you, I love you too ... Dammit!
Looks like Daniel and Charlotte may have found love a little too late...

Big Love

Didn't realize the new season of Big Love had started so I just got caught up of the first two episodes tonight...I have to say, that's a pretty impressive TP job they did on Niki's house... as Bill came walking up to her through the toilet paper, it almost looked like the opening credits when they are walking through all the white curtains...

OK, this show is bizarre enough with the compound, the polygamy, the multiple houses and all the kids, etc... but this!?... what kind of neighborhoods have block parties like this?... no place that I've ever lived! Everybody dressed all neat and out in the street having a barbecue in their perfect little neighborhood - it's the most disturbing thing I've ever seen!

Cleaning a bird's ass with a Q-tip... where do the writers come up with some of this stuff?

Funniest part of the episode was when Lois dragged her husband out of the house and as she pulled him out the door he bumped his head on the ground and you could here her laugh...

24 Day 7 - 1pm-2pm

Chloe and Buchanan rescue Agent WalkerChloe and Buchanan to the rescue... they handled that impossible situation nice and neat. How Jack was able to call them undetected, explain the situation and give directions to the construction site was conveniently not explained... and how they were able to get there so quickly and happen to have readily available the medical equipment they would need to bring Agent Walker back to life was also a neat little coincidence.... Hmmmmm

OK, and riddle me this... "stick to her guns" President Allison Taylor is refusing to give in to terrorist demands - I understand the whole idea of giving in just encourages more terrorism but... couldn't they just temporarily "give in" to his demands to appease Colonel Iké Dubaku and then as soon as they find his location and recover the device, move the military back into place? It seems like such an obvious and simple solution that it's bugging me that they haven't even addressed the option and given us a reasonable explanation as to why they don't try it... just seems like such a big plot hole; it's driving me crazy ever time they show the President and advisers arguing...

Carly Pope getting bumped offWell, I was half right in my prediction last week... kind of obvious that something would go wrong with the attempt to kill the President's husband but hey, they did bump off Carly Pope in a rather disturbing way...

Colm Feore the presidents husband getting a strangle hold on the situation
