Shirt Tales - TV Shows
Lame storylines, lame jokes (or no jokes at all), and boring. What would anyone expect from a show based on characters from greeting cards? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 12, 2012, 12:59 pm

Regular Show - TV Shows
On your advice, "()", I decided to give this show a try. Glad I did: it's actually pretty good. And funny. A lot of commercials for it make it look stupid, so I guess you should never judge a show based on its commercials. I was surprised to learn Rigby's actually a raccoon. I always thought he was some sort of lemur...or a red panda. Cartoon Network has a lot of gum-themed characters lately: Adventure Time's Princess Bubblegum, Regular Show's Benson the gumball machine, and The Amazing World of Gumball's Gumball the cat. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 12, 2012, 12:57 pm

Bill Hicks - Celebrities
I never knew about Bill Hicks until now. However, something struck me when I read the description: "He often criticized mediocrity and banality within the media and popular culture, describing them as oppressive tools of the ruling class, meant to "keep people stupid and apathetic." Almost 20 years after his death, these words ring truer than ever. Shows have gotten worse, and people are so used to it that it's considered "normal". It may be a clue as to what he might have said about the Scottish site. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 31, 2012, 1:57 pm

World War II - Random Topics
There were a tiny number of people who openly opposed WWII, but the media put them right where they belong: buried. What a difference between today and 60 years ago. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 31, 2012, 1:35 pm

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
That reminds me of something from when Bush was in office, seeking a second term: on a forum, a friend of mine said he'd consider moving to Canada if Bush was re-elected. Another friend on the forum (who was from Canada!), warned him that Canada wouldn't let him in. Anyhow, when it comes to candidates, the best you can do is vote for the lesser of two evils. And if they win, hope they ARE the lesser of two evils. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 31, 2012, 1:33 pm

Almost Naked Animals - TV Shows
This is now on Boomerang. Boomerang is for classic cartoons and this show is little more than one year old. Well, what can I say about a cartoon about hideously drawn animals who shaved off their fur and wear underwear? That's easy: Day One. I tried to watch it. It's unwatchable garbage. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 15, 2012, 12:17 pm

Sitcom - Random Topics
If you miss sitcoms, try Britcoms. On PBS Saturday night (7-9pm), you can catch four of them: Are You Being Served?, Are You Being Served? Again! (the spinoff), Keeping Up Appearances, and As Time Goes By. The first three are comedies, and As Time Goes By is drama. Alas, they sometimes schedule something else. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 15, 2012, 11:55 am

Rush Limbaugh - Celebrities
To those raging against him for calling a woman a "slut": where was your outrage when Bill Maher called both Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann the C-word (which may be the worst anti-woman slur of all time)? And where was your outrage when people called Sarah Palin's daughter a "slut" when she became pregnant? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 15, 2012, 11:52 am

I rarely eat here (once in the past two years). I went there because I had a coupon. If you go to the grocery store, you might find TGIFriday's crispy buffalo wings. They're delicious! But a box costs $8-10, so I wait until they're on sale to get them. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 15, 2012, 11:46 am

Compulsory Voting - Random Topics
Isn't this unconstitutional? If not, it should be. The excuse "it encourages people to get active and interested in politics" is baloney: people end up going "eenie, meenie, minie, moe" to choose candidates. And which politician should we vote for? When it comes to political ads, all we hear from candidate Tom is why you shouldn't vote for Dick or Harry. OK, we get it, Tom: Dick stole $450,000 in taxpayer funds to buy himself a yacht. Harry called his ex-wives whores on live TV three years ago, and he refuses to pay child support because they're not his. You play these ads EVERY...SINGLE...COMMERCIAL...BREAK. What are YOU going to do when elected, Tom? Maybe YOUR crimes are so much worse that all you can do is smear Dick and Harry? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 15, 2012, 11:43 am

Dr. Seuss movies (live-action) - Movie Series
It's a shame two classic books had to be brutally gutted and boned until Audrey came to her senses. Before these abominations were unleashed, if someone said they're going to watch the Grinch or the Cat in the Hat, you automatically knew what they meant: the cartoon masterpieces. Not anymore. Plus, it gets worse. Whenever the Grinch is promoted (like "Grinchmas" at Universal Studios), it's almost always based on the horrid movie, rather than the Chuck Jones special. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 2, 2012, 1:18 pm

Shrek - Movie Series
SPOILER ALERTS if you haven't seen the Fourth movie! Also, sorry for the long post ahead. IMHO, the fourth movie wasn't bad, but it's loaded with plot holes (which, in turn, make you realize the previous sequels have them as well). When the movie starts, it's revealed that when Shrek rescued Fiona, he stopped the King and Queen from signing a deal with Rumpelstiltskin. But in the second movie, Prince Charming goes the castle, and finds Fiona was already rescued. Since Shrek 4 takes place in an alternate universe where Shrek was never born, what happened to the Fairy Godmother (who'd still be alive if Shrek never existed) and Prince Charming? They're nowhere, not even as a cameo or flashback (except during the credit roll, to reflect on the previous three movies). In the second movie, the Fairy Godmother made a deal with the King that her son would marry Fiona. So why are the King and Queen making a deal with Rumpelstiltskin instead of her? And since she'd still be alive, where is she to fight Rumpelstiltskin over who rules Far Far Away? With Shrek gone, the King and Queen surrender their kingdom to Rumpel, then disappear out of existence. Rumpel doesn't uphold his deal to free Fiona. Since Shrek doesn't exist, Prince Charming (or Lord Farquaad) could've saved her instead. In the alternate universe, Dragon has been moved to Rumpel's castle. Was she taken there before or after Fiona left the castle? If before, rescuing Fiona would've been easy. In fact, instead of hiring someone in the first movie (which was Shrek, but now Shrek was never born), Farquaad could've saved her himself. Like Fairy Godmother and Prince Charming, Farquaad is never seen, much less mentioned. Back to Fiona, she gets tired of waiting and...frees herself. She stayed there to hide her curse. Now that she's free, and the curse is broken by true love's kiss, she can find her true love. According to the second movie, she had a crush on Prince Charming, so she should've looked for him. Instead, she joins the ogres, as their warrior queen. She was ashamed to be an ogre until she met Shrek, so why would she be with ogres instead of people? Then, we have Puss in Boots. Introduced in the second movie as a hitman hired by the King to kill Shrek, he's become Fiona's overweight pet. He would never have met Fiona if not for Shrek. It would've been apropos if he was a freelance hitman against the ogre forces (bonus points would've been awarded if he saw the error of his ways and joins them, like he did in Shrek 2). But if he's Fiona's pet, wouldn't it be more logical that he were a warrior like her? OK, I admit, fat Puss is funny, but there's no way Shrek never existing would turn him into Garfield. In the first movie, the fairy tale characters were in Shrek's swamp because Farquaad was hunting them down, and Shrek made a deal to get rid of them. If Shrek never existed, they'd still be using the swamp as a secret hiding place (no Shrek = no one kicks them out). Donkey was originally going to be sold in the first movie, but he runs away and Shrek saves him. So it makes sense that he's the witches' slave. What happens to all the other characters, like Arthur, and the others from the third movie? Surely they would have helped in the fight against Rumpel. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 2, 2012, 1:02 pm

When it comes to fiercely guarding their property, they're now just as bad (if not worse than) Disney. And what business do they have to claim videos which aren't even their own? At least Disney guards only what's theirs. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 24, 2012, 12:46 pm
