    ABC Prepares to Reboot 'V'

    This thread inspired me to whip out the DVD of the original mini-series. Everytime I watch it I become a wide-eyed 6 year old like I was when I saw it for the first time on tv. Can't wait for the reboot!

    American Idol - Season 8

    According to Wikipedia (which certainly is faultless) this is the first time Adam has performed last in the finals. Is that true? I know he performed last one night in the semi-finals. Whenever and wherever he performs, he knocks me out. My partner is a professional, classically trained opera...

    American Idol - Season 8

    Lady Gaga was the only enjoyable part of the results show. She's pretty badass, especially the eye zipper, which I would definitely wear to work if I wouldn't clash with my suit. She is quite amazing and a multi-talented artist. Saw her show at the House of Blues in Boston this week and was...

    *** Official SEX AND THE CITY Discussion Thread

    I really enjoyed the film and didn't really notice the length. The audience I saw it with in Boston applauded. I think there was a lot of pent up demand for more from these characters. I loved Charlotte's moments in this film, particularly Otherwise a really enjoyable evening at the...

    Street Release or Leaks?

    This is a tough one. I know Madonna's new album leaked, like most other albums nowadays, and I am trying VERY hard not to listen. I am still one of those guys who loves the experience of going to a record store and holding the physical CD in my hands. It's the combination of the anticipation of...

    Madonna: Hard Candy

    Me! I can't wait. It's getting a lot of good early buzz. 4 Minutes is not a masterpiece, so I am hoping the rest of the disc delivers.

    *** Official SEMI-PRO Discussion Thread

    How has no one mentioned Zoolander? "I feel like I'm taking CRAZY PILLS!!!" :laugh: Still his best role, rivaled only by Ron Burgandy in Anchorman.

    30 Rock - Season 2

    Weird. The SD feed I watched was left totally uncensored, which I found quite shocking.

    30 Rock - Season 2

    Not for the airing I saw on the East Coast. I was taken aback that they aired uncensored, then surprised to see that they had been bleeped later on. Maybe NBC got calls about it after the original East Coast airing and bleeped it for the subsequent airings.

    30 Rock - Season 2

    Anyone notice some new censorship in the repeat that aired last night? It was the ep with Carrie Fisher. Fisher's character used a couple of racial slurs that aired uncensored in the original broadcast but were bleeped last night.

    2007 MLB Playoffs (Predictions and Discussion)

    I had the distinct pleasure of being at Fenway for Game 1. BEST. GAME. EVER! What a great way to kick it off. Bringing Gange in usually gives me an ulcer, but with the 12-run lead, that move was sure not to have much of a negative effect on the game. He pitched surprisingly well. Oh...

    Ugly Betty: Season 2 Discussion Thread

    Uneven episode with a brilliant ending. Is Illeana Douglas' character a permanent addition? She really grated on me for some reason and seems superfluous. Hope the character doesn't return.

    2007 MTV VMAs

    Wow.....Britney Spears. Holy cow, that was bad. I actually like the new track, Gimme More, and have always liked Brit, but this was unwatchable. She was either distracted, uninterested, nervous or drunk. She was totally detached from the performance, made no effort to make her lip-syncing...

    30 Rock Season 1 audio problem?

    The episode on Disc 1 entitled Jack Meets Dennis, I noticed some audio problems during the opening scene in Rockefeller Plaza. The dialogue is drowned out by the music and also seems out of sync. Anyone else notice this?

    American Idol - Season 6

    Ouch! I thought she looked pretty darn good last night. I'd prefer to look at her than one of those skin and bones girls that are all over the magazine rack. Work it KiKi!!!! ;) I thought Blake was great, and I haven't liked anything he has done in over a month. Phil was great, but maybe I...

    American Idol - Season 6

    They let Blake sneak in a song that was not quite country, but a bit more rock n roll. They ID'd his song as a Tim McGraw song but it's a Ryan Adams song from his brilliant Gold album.

    Casino Royale (2006) on 3/13/07

    Loved this film, totally changed the look and feel of a Bond film, without losing the soul of the series. I was skeptical of Daniel Craig but was completely won over. He was fantastic. Now I have to go get Layer Cake. Did anyone pick up the Target deluxe edition with extra making-of bonus...

    American Idol - Season 6

    I have never seen them perform a Madonna song, at least one that was written by her. I believe she has not given the requisite permission. There are definitely songs that are off limits for the contestants.

    Ugly Betty

    Highly opposed to any makeover for Betty or a relationship with Daniel. Now, Henry, that's another story. He's delicious.

    WOW, one heck of a twist tonight! Never would have guessed that Rebecca Romijn's character would be Daniel's brother post sex change!!!

    Lumbar puncture (spinal tap)

    I had one when I was 5 years old b/c i contracted menangitis. I still vividly remember it. I was terrified and it was quite painful. I had two orderlies holding me down to ensure I didn't move. Terrible experience, but I survived! I am sure it was much more traumatic for a 5 year old than...

    The Legend of Billie Jean (1985) - Helen Slater, Christian Slater

    Just heard Invincible on XM today and ran home to order the DVD........ I can't believe this isn't out yet! Sony obviously negotiated music rights for the VHS release, I wonder if those releases covered future home video releases, regardless of format??? Hmm....

    How do you start a really good fire in the fireplace with real wood?

    This is my first place with a fireplace and I can't seem to get good fires going unless I use those fake starter logs. I really want to use real wood. I know the drier the wood the better, and I need to get a good wood delivery service. But is there anything else I can do? Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, I was wondering why they had two musical guests. The monster sketch was hysterical.

    Gilmore Girls Season 7 Thread

    I'm with you on this one Patrick. The parts that bugged me the most about this episode were the scenes with Rory's new friends. Who are they and what is the point of including them? They're not interesting or essential to anything (unless Rory is meant to steal Marty away). I'd much rather...

    Madonna adoption thoughts

    Shame on her for trying to take a child away from extreme poverty. Someone should lock her up. She clearly didn't do this for the publicity, since most of the work for this adoption was done behind the scenes for months. And she was in Malawi for quite a while before any pictures of her even...

    Waterfront- the one starring Joey Pantoliano

    Too bad. Was hoping this would be another feather in the cap of the Providence film industry. We have the Brotherhood and Underdog. Saw Joey Pants at lunch the afternoon the cancellation was announced and he looked a little forlorn. Networks seem to be losing patience with expensive dramas.
