I’m bored to death with what is on TV these days. It gets especially bad during the holidays when it seems that some big red rerun button is pushed or the Fall Season ends and new episodes stop showing.
Do the Neilson ratings even matter anymore? I mean why should there be certain periods of time such as sweeps when there is too much good stuff on and other times when you can’t even find a decent new show to watch.
I hate to rant about how tv sucks because I like watching television so much – but hey – face it – the way they force feed us what they want when they want SUCKS!
Some day soon we won’t have to put up with the way networks schedule their shows. I imagine a time when they will release product much like they do DVD’s or albums.
Sure, there will always be some kind of seasonality – I realize that – but there needs to be less of the force feeding we must endure from those who have power over what we watch.
And there is another disturbing trend that really rubs me the wrong way. The mini-series effect.
I mean – hey – they just don’t give us full seasons of shows anymore, do they? (more…)
Uhh… You mean that Bristol Palin – she could be the winner of Dancing with the Stars? Oh my lordy! What is going on with this world!
I don’t mean to be disresepectful but she’s kind of chubby and dances like a muppet. (I did mean that!)
I only see her as being a oddity and curiousity figure for viewers. I hope she is not credited as an ultimate victor and put on a pedestal with other Dancing Iwth The Stars winners. And c’mon – she’s not even a star… (more…)
Wherever you go – you are being watched by hidden cameras.
|Wow – Showtime really nailed it with this new show called LOOK!|
Look the series on Showtime reels you in and makes you feel like you’re a part of disturbing peeping tom like activities that are going on all around us all the time!
Who would ever believe that an episodic tv series shot to emulate the look and feel of low budget security camera footage could be SO GOOD!
Look on Showtime is not only good – it’s brilliant (that means great!).
It takes the concept or REALITY TV and amplifies that 100 fold by making you feel like you are a part of the action.
It’s about 3 or 4 weeks into the new series and seems to be revealing new episodes weekly. How long they’ll come out with new episodes – who knows! I hope a long time! It’s great!
Look for yourself >>>
It’s so realsitic you (or me) constantly forget that is it’s more than just hidden camera footage and they have complete storylines and plots developed that force us to follow and become acquainted with characters whom at first sight appear to be random.
But things develop and the realism of the raw looking footage makes us forget that Look the Series on Showtime is more than just dressing room camera footage and such.
Especially notable in the cast is Giuseppe Andrews, who plays a mini mart dude who plays his original music while all manner of crazy stuff happens. He does a a Myspace announced concert and the mini mart is taken over by people who come to watch him perform. The music is hooky and catchy and really good. I find myself humming the tunes after just one listen. They should consider a soundtrack release with the music!
Well that sums it up in a nutshell. You absolutely must check it out!
Look – the series on Showtime
