Big Brother Scandals

Posted by tvondvdcritic on February 17, 2008

This season of Big Brother is shaping up to be one scandalous edition. First that ugly guy James was discovered  jerking off in a porno, and now half nude pics of gay contestant Neil emerge. On top of that ditzy girl Amanda is now accusing her ‘soul mate’ (Big Brothers term, not mine) of molesting her.

With the writers strike just barely over, new shows won’t be back on for quite some time still, so I am stuck watching this. What else am I supposed to watch? I’m just waiting for one of the girls to say they really have a penis.

High School Musical: The Failing Grade

Bad things come in threes. It’s confirmed that High School Musical 3 is a go, and this time it’s not just a Disney Channel movie, it’s full length feature film set to hit theaters. If I never watched this movie on TV the first two editions,  I sure as hell won’t pay $12 to see it in the theater.

Fans of the movie can once again see Zac Efron, who is the butchest woman I’ve ever seen, Ashley Tisdale who has a new nose so it could help her breathing, but can it help her acting, and Vanessa Hudgens who was involved in a nude photo scandal that was every creepy 50 year old pedophiles wet dream.

You better believe if I was principal of that high school I would have suspended them all just for being annoying little twats.

Jamie Lynn Loses Job

Last week I told you that I thought Jamie Lynn could give big sis Britney a run for her money for most trashy Spears.  Now it seems she’s one step closer since this soon to be Mom is now unemployed. Nickelodeon has reportedly canned the show ‘Zoey 101’ due to baby Mama drama. Luckily for Jamie Lynn and her 7 fans, she had already filmed the 4th season of the show.

Conservatist Back On The View

Posted by tvondvdcritic on January 4, 2008

Everyone’s least hated conservatist will return to ‘The View’ on Monday. Elisabeth Hasselbeck will return to the show after having a hiatus to have her son, Taylor Thomas. Is she serious? Taylor Thomas? I hope her husband’s name isn’t Johnathon.

I never get to watch the view, but I always enjoyed reading gossip about it the morning after, when Rosie O’Donnell was on and started all kinds of gay trouble. Now they have Whoopi, boring! Although deep down inside I’m sure she has some gay trouble in her. Gay is written all over her manish features.

Late Night Hosts Return

Posted by tvondvdcritic on January 3, 2008

David Letterman returned to work Wednesday sporting a full beard amongst controversy. Joining him in his late night return was Jay Leno. Letterman is my preferred choice of show, although I don’t watch either too much.

I’m so over this writers strike. And if these comedians were funny themselves, why can’t they make their own jokes? Letterman worked out an agreement to let writers work for him, and Leno used old jokes. One thing I think is ridiculous, is every late night talk show host that returned last night (Conan O’Brien, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel also retuned) all said they supported the strike cause and said they were right. Yet, they all walk past picket lines. I think we should have got scabs to host the shows. Imagine someone like Courtney Love, Britney Spears or Paris Hilton hosting. What a delicious mess that would be.

The return of the hosts is a big deal in the world of television and the thing that grabs my attention? The guests that night. Chingy and Bob Saget. What?

America, Meet HALO

Posted by tvondvdcritic on January 2, 2008

                        milo-and-hayden_376x605.jpg

There are all these rumors on the internet that Milo Ventimilgia and Hayden Panettiere are officially a couple. That’s all based on reports that their families approve of each other. Now I don’t care if they are a couple or not, but this is a perfect example of taking a small piece of a story and running with it. Who cares if they are going out? Why is America so obsessed with tabloids and celebrities? What’s up with these stupid names they give couples? HaLo? (Hayden and Milo) And before you say, ‘But wait a minute, you write a blog about celebrities!’, I do mine out of hatred, not admiration.

And on a side note, isn’t Milo the pointiest person on earth? Yuk!

Let’s Use The Word Celebrity Loosely

Posted by tvondvdcritic on January 2, 2008

I’m not sure what to say about the new ‘Celebrity Apprentice’. These celebrity reality shows are really quite sad if you think about it. Most of the time you get these ‘celebrities’ that were either one hit wonders from 1982, was an extra in some obscure movie, is married to someone semi famous, or a former reality star.

All the celebrities on this show fit my explanation above. You have such people as: Nadia Comenichi, a gymnast from Romania who won a gold medal in the Olympics in the year only God knows when, Lennox Lewis, a former boxing champ, Gene Simmons of Kiss, who is the celebrity this show is whoring out the most since obviously he’s the most successful, and Omarosa, who is a legend in her own head. As for the rest, does it really matter?

I’m not sure what they win, but I know what they lose. Their dignity.

Friday Night Lights: 1st Season Review

Posted by tvondvdcritic on December 4, 2007

   friday_night_lights_header.jpg

I dont like football. I liked this show. Friday Night Lights at first glance appears to be about football and nothing else. While football is the central theme of the show, its the emotional value the characters put into it that make it likeable. I know what your thinking. Not another show that turns every ending into a tearjerker. Well, its not like that. Yes it has moving scenes, but the best thing the show has going for it is its rawness. Even the way the show is shot, with shaky camera work, and awkward angles make it seem like your right there next to them. I cant say enough about that aspect because I would say thats the reason I like the show, one of the only reasons. I hate football, the storyline was predictable, I hated a lot of the charecters, but i still liked the show.

The first episode focuses on the city of Dillon Texs and the high school football team, the Panthers. I wasnt blown away by the pilot, however it set the tone for the ‘rawness’ factor and that itself was intriguing. The cliffhanger was slightly ridiculous though. The star quarterback gets paralyzed in the first game of the season. The city is devastated and wondering how they will recover and play good football. Anybody who doesn’t think that by seasons end the team wont win the big championship, doesnt watch much tv, because of course they win, I’ll spoil that for you right now.

Jason, the quarterback who got paralyzed, makes a less than dramatic recovery, and has ups and downs with his cheerleader girlfriend Lila. The storyline did nothing for me, except make me hate Jason. He had the typical Nancy Kerrigan ‘Why me?’ motto and would bitch and whine about everything. Everything except handicapped rugby that is. Yes, handicap rugby. He tries out for the Beijing Olympics (what?) and once he fails to make the team his life is in pieces yet again. Until he gets a job as a assistant coach for his former football team of course. Yep, even though another character earlier in the season tried to get a job for the team but couldn’t because it was too late in the season, Jason manages to get the job in a matter of two days.

The show revolves around coach Taylor. A tough guy on the outside, sweet on the inside kinda guy. We’ve seen a million of this guy on tv before. His storylines are predictable. Wife and Daughter drama, work drama, etc. etc. Despite that, I still hadn’t given up on this show at this point. And I think the main reason why is the acting has a way about it. It’s not the best acting, in fact I would go as far as to say sometimes its overacted, but it looks as if its almost natural, like there isnt any acting. And even though I didn’t like all the actors, they put all of themselves into it, which is more than a lot of shows do now a days.

Coach Taylor and his homelife play a big part in the show. And that’s a good thing, because I didn’t know how much more I could take of high schoolers acting like it’s the end of the world if they lost the game. Yes I know it’s their life but come on. Sometimes it just seemed like they did not act their age and that football was God to them, except only not, because the show also has a large Christian vibe to the show.

Julie, Coach Taylor’s daughter, develops a relationship with Matt, the quarterback after Jason gets crippled (oops did I just say that?). Julie’s character is pleasant enough. One of the more likeable people on the show for me, probably because she hated how the town worshipped the football players. Her involvement with Matt causes complications for her Dad since that is a player on his team. One of the better storylines of the season, including the best moment of the season when Julie’s Mom discusses sex with Julie and screams ‘You cannot have sex!”

Speaking of Matt, he is my favorite person on the show. He was the realest, most likeable character there. He lived with his Gramma and was one of the few people not to get on my nerves all season. He had more emotional depth than anyone, and the best storylines of anyone (Julie, his Dad coming back from Iraq, his Gramma)

Not to be forgotten (unfortunately) is ‘Smash’ and Tim. Smash plays the cocky black kid who thinks he better than anyone. Oh and he takes steroids, gets caught, and gets off clean without punishment! Another reason to be a football player! Tim, is a drunk at the age of 16, and starts sleeping with someone in their 40’s. Did I mention he’s 16?

A big critique I have of the show (as if I didn’t have enough already) is how the team manages to win games with seconds left by some miraculous play. Thats not believeable. And it happens in almost every game they win. Team is down with only minutes remaining. The coach calls them over for a pep talk. They go back on the field and win the game. If that was the whole episode I would have stopped watching after the first show. I have to keep referring back to the acting style though, the reason I kept watching.

Yes they annoyed me, yes it was slightly overacted, but I can’t say enough about the way the show is produced and shot. It makes up for the problems a lot. Despite an iffy storyline all season, there are enough good plots to get you through, and the look of the show will bump it up a few notches, which it does for me.

Score: 7.5/10

My Black Friday Receipt

Posted by tvondvdcritic on November 25, 2007

                                         six-feet-under-series.jpg

My favorite shopping day has come and gone, and this year was a bit of a letdown. Maybe because I have most of everything that was on sale, my purchasing was limited a bit. I ended up with the following:

Six Feet Under: The Complete Series ($119.99)

Extras: Season 1 & 2 ($13.49 each)

24: Season 2 ($24.99)

Family Guy: Season 4 ($14.99)

House: Seasons 1 & 2 ($12.99 each)

Seinfeld: Seasons 1 & 2 ($14.99 each)

A couple of those things were for Christmas gifts, and the HBO sets were for me. My receipt total was pretty low considering all I got. Hope everyone had a good day of shopping, I did despite the lack of choices.
