Lost – Lockdown

Last week I ripped a page out of the Little League and Boston Bruins’ playbook and promised my readers a free trip to Dairy Queen if I scored four out of 5 correct answers in my bold predictions of the Five Major Events that were teased would go down on Lost this week. As Mook…

24 Day 5 9:00 – 10:00 p.m.

This was a big week for 24. Nobody died. Well – give or take a few helpless gas company workers. Hey, you make an omelet… But among the thinning cast, the producers held up on their pruning. I guess that salvo launched by the dearly departed Edgar – or his real-life counterpart Louis Lombardi –…

Lost – The Whole Truth

This week’s Lost was one of those placeholder eps – marking time between the big revelations. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to come across as glib and I appreciate it when the show slows the pace down to deliver some character development – to dwell upon the details – before turning the…

Snake Rattle, Let’s Roll

That’s it. This flick is officially my new pet project. I mean the thing’s called Snakes on a Plane and with that title – sight unseen – I brazenly declare it, the greatest B movie of all time. I thought Sam ‘The Man’ Jackson already locked that title up with Deep Blue Sea (that Jaws…

The Real World: Springfield

By now, a lot of you have seen that real-life Simpsons intro. Sean even linked to it over on Scooby Speak a couple weeks back. I read this morning that Simpsons creator Matt Groening was so impressed, he’s using it for the intro to this Sunday’s episode. It’s worth sticking around for the show as well…

Snakes on a Plane

And people complain about the creative process in Hollywood. New Line Cinema has reportedly greenlit a 5-Day period of reshoots on the Samuel L. Jackson vehicle Snakes on a Plane in order to add material to bring the film from a PG-13 rating to an R – citing growing fan fervor. Among the reported additions…

Kicking and Screaming

I’m not going to miss those Papa Gino’s commercials. As clutch a kicker as New England has ever had – Adam Vinatieri was not exactly a world-class thespian – although, with his boyish charisma, he did hold his own well enough to field invitations from Letterman, Leno and Lipton (that’s all it takes – one Meineke…

Where’s the ‘ANY’ Key?

Producers of The Office, take note. There is a plethora of material to be mined in the abuse of the Reply to All button. For those who have ever worked in an office – or regularly engage in the pastime of e-mailing – this post is bound to smack you in that proverbial funny bone….

24 Day 5 8:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Before I delve into this week’s observations, I wanted to take a few moments to take stock of all the nicknames I have attached to this season’s players – sort of a little primer to the way my head works when watching this show. 24 is the “Jack Bauer Power Hour”. This season features an…

Light and Shadows

For everyone enjoying the pics from Aria’s Christening, I have to throw a shout out to my best friend and this site’s designer, Sean O’Brien, for his expert wielding of the camera. Keep an eye out for the launch of his own Blog which is bound to feature the various pics he’s taken over the…
