MasterChef (USA) - TV Shows
Excellent story, Friedrich! Let's especially keep this mind when folks try to foist their underaged kids on alleged 'reality' shows! P.S. As for the MasterChef's crowd 'stunt', can we all agree that this was a rather half-baked notion?LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 26, 2011, 6:55 pm

Jennifer Slept Here - TV Shows
I never got what exactly Jennifer was trying to do here. Was she trying to mentor or seduce the 14-year-old kid now living in her house? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 23, 2011, 10:45 am

BeautifulPeople.com - Websites
Also, curious as to what it's in English instead of Danish if it's HQ'd in Denmark. Sounds as though Hamlet didn't get the last of something rotten there. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 23, 2011, 10:42 am

BeautifulPeople.com - Websites
Why anyone would go to a website to seek out companions is beyond me! How do folks expect other website participants to be anywhere as honest about themselves as they'd need to be in a face-to-face encounter? Oh, and I hope someone tells the participants here that genetics is somewhat of a crap shoot in that JUST because parents are plain or gorgeous doesn't guarantee the offspring's going to be the same. Kids can inherit the best or worst of the gene pools in the most unexpected ways. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 23, 2011, 10:41 am

Vicar of Dibley, The - TV Shows
What's frustrating to me about this show is that the premise of a woman vicar coming into a tiny conservative town could have been a fantastic comedic gold mine but they turned every character and situation into one-dimentional cartoons immediately and ruined it. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 19, 2011, 7:34 pm

Can Katie just BAR the door on this one already? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 19, 2011, 7:18 pm

LeBron James - Celebrities
I confess. I'm not into sports that much. Hence, Mr. James holds no interest for me so I have no real opinion on him. However; thanks DolFan for reconsidering leaving. I hope Soggy reads this and decides to return as well. The two of you have the potential for great discourse even if from seemingly opposite POVs. Oh, and could someone tell shanequia I'd like HER to return,too? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 19, 2011, 7:12 pm

Westboro Baptist Church - Random Topics
I think we could all use some good news and here's something that should make every caring person proud: on Sunday, June 13th, in Nashville, TN- 3 protestors [count 'em three] from Westboro Baptist Church showed up to protest at the funeral of Sgt. Kevin Balduf age 27 who had died in combat in Afghanistan- but they left after only 10 minutes due to the COUNTER-protest and rally of over 2,000 [two THOUSAND] TRUE patriots who came to show their support for Sgt. Balduf's family and compatriots during that heartbreaking occasion. HOORAY! Isn't that good news? Allow me to use this soapbox to try to stir up the possibility of future good news: Now Soggy and DolFan, I can't say I always agree with your respective points of view but you each bring something interesting to this proverbial table- even if it's a point of view I disagree with , I think it's interesting to find out who has it and individual MO's[ and I daresay I think you all entirely chalk-and-cheese with each other]! I don't expect you two to always agree but the board wouldn't be as intriguing or fun without either of you here. If either of you want to take a breather to cool off, that's fine but I'd hate to lose either of you permanently. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 15, 2011, 8:09 am

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
For me, it boned when they went to some hidden base- and immediately happened upon a cantina bar virtually identical to the one in the original first "Star Wars" movie [and IIRC I don't think this went unnoticed by Lucas]. Couldn't they try to be a little original? Oh, and it didn't help that Lorne Greene's Adama patriarch was even duller than Adam Cartwright [Ben's eldest son] on "Bonanza". -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 13, 2011, 6:53 pm

American Idol - TV Shows
Not exactly true, DolFan. It's whether the powers who wanna invest consider the hack *marketable* that's the key. Alas, there are plenty of authentically talented folks out there whom couldn't get a first look from American Idol or any other ilk. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 13, 2011, 6:49 pm

Black Flag - Music Groups
Soggy, Are you saying this band is about as consistant as I've found the namesake bug spray to be? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 12, 2011, 9:32 am

Beer - Random Topics
I'm somewhat with DolFan here! While I'm fascinated that this seems to have been the first commodity produced by humans (i.e. early barns that stored grasses to feed newly domesticated livestock had leaky roofs which let rain in to ferment said grasses. Long short is that beer seems to have been around at least 1000 years before bread), I can't say this is something I ever was into. Maybe I share the tastes of the more Continental part of my background but I far preferred wine or rum when I wanted booze. Of course, it should be consumed only by legal adults who are aware of risks + health issues and if one wants to get drunk on it, please call a cab or designated driver instead of risking other drivers,pedestrians. Cab fare is FAR cheaper than legal fees. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 12, 2011, 9:31 am

Commish, The - TV Shows
Not a bad little show! What I liked the most here is how the title character caught clues and worked out whodunnit and HOW- and then did his best to nail the perps. I recall one episode in which he momentarily hesitated in breaking into someone's apartment sans warrant on the ground that the evidence couldn't be used to give the perp a life sentence- then realized that the kidnapped baby dependent on medicine would DIE waiting for said warrant so it was better to risk no jail time for the perp than to let a kidnapped baby die! I liked the idea of an official weighing what was ethically better for the victims/families rather than just someone who randomly dispensed stuff with no thought of that. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 2:07 pm

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution - TV Shows
DolFan, Well, considering that it's showing how a government run school system of a large US metropolitan area is actively pushing unhealthy foods on the city's youth to the point of trying to BAN any dissenting options or voices [to say nothing about how near adult youth are being shown having been kept APPALLING ignorant of even the most elemental nutrition and food source info], I think it's actually a bit eye-opening and I hope those are concerned about the possibility of larger percentages of folks in rising generations suffering from serious diet/exercise related longterm health problems will at least consider what steps they can individually take to help those loved ones in their life to avoid such calamnities. For example, diabetes is on the rise and not only does this mean amputations but 60 percent of diabetic go BLIND. Hence, if one estimate's forecast of one-third of all children born after 2000 contracting diabetes comes true, do the math and think of what this could mean for our nation's future if this goes unchecked . The main downside to the program is Jamie's constant pity-party for himself re others' resistance. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 2:00 pm

Geraldo Rivera - Celebrities
Soggy, Oh, *I* knew his ego eclipsed the sun WAY back at Al Capone's Vault! As for him being 'inspiration'? Look at this way, perhaps subconsciously you all knew he was awful beneath all the pomposity and hype but weren't ready to openly admit it even to yourselves. However; you all were inspired to try to become journalists because deep inside you all knew you could be BETTER and have higher standards of conduct and ethics [ virtually anyone can].No, I'm not dissing you or other former fans of his because unfortunately the shrill promo machinary behind him at his height made it rather unpleasant to admit even the slightest criticism of his work at that time. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 1:43 pm

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution - TV Shows
I saw the episode when high school students failed to correctly guess that butter comes from cows even with the help of a multiple choice format! How is that no parent or teacher had ever taught them that before high school?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 8, 2011, 8:24 am

Perfect Strangers - TV Shows
Balki was only mildly entertaining for about two minutes then became supremely annoying to me . Looking back, I understand why: because Balki was a lite version of the late Andy Kaufman's Latka [who himself was best a funny background character for roughly five minutes at a time]. Did the producers and Bronson Pinchot seriously think they'd slack the public's thirst for Andy Kaufman with . . . that?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 8, 2011, 8:02 am

Duck Factory, The - TV Shows
Not a bad premise [and interesting to see a young Jim Carrey REALLY get into cartooning with the other characters]. Yet, it just didn't wash- primarily because with everyone working together to save this floundering cartoon studio, there were no antagonists beyond the wolf a the door. Maybe folks weren't ready to get nostalgic about real cartoons at this point. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 7, 2011, 12:48 pm

Supergirl - Movie Series
How is a movie that's even LESS fondly remembered by Supe fans than "Superman Three" considered a 'series'? I hope Helen Slater's life has improved since this debacle. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 7, 2011, 12:30 pm
