Frugal Gourmet, The - TV Shows
The reason should really say "Sexual Harrassment of Teenage Boys" because his accusers were minors at the time of the alleged attacks. Also, the only reason he was never charged was because he settled out of court just before he was going to go to trial. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 17, 2011, 8:52 pm

South Park - TV Shows
That episode was not a favorite of mine, but Trey & Matt said they based the episode on normally mild-mannered friends of theirs that suddenly had Britney Bloodlust. The recent Charlie Sheen meltdown is similar to Britney's, and people were lapping it up. I saw a piece on the news about Charlie Sheen's disastrous live tour. The reporter interviewed some of the people coming out and they said they were disappointed in the show because they wanted to witness "a trainwreck" or "something catastrophic". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 16, 2011, 2:49 am

Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer, The - TV Shows
Amazing how this trainwreck even got greenlit at all. It's also fascinating how this show managed (without trying) to offend every group of people imaginable. Obviously the slavery issue was the main concern, but others hated the way historical figures were made out to be total buffoons. I remember my mother complaining about the depiction of the Lincolns' (fictional) sexual problems. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 15, 2011, 10:18 pm

Rosie O'Donnell - Celebrities
Oprah is giving Rosie her own show on Oprah Winfrey Network, so we haven't seen the end of her unfortunately. Rosie is already squandering this second chance; she's already fighting with Oprah and the thing hasn't even aired yet. She promised Oprah to return to the "Nice Rosie" persona of the '90s, but has changed her tune and now wants to use it as a soapbox for her political views. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 12, 2011, 7:12 pm

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I'm the one guy on earth that hasn't seen this show, but here's my opinion on the finale anyways. They hyped that finale like CRAZY. Everyone was talking about it. Then when it aired, a lot of people were seriously wondering if their cable went out during the ending. I think if your finale looks like a technical glitch, you've done something wrong. They really shouldn't have hyped the episode up like they did if they were going to do a non-ending. I remember Ray Romano went out of his way to warn people that the Everybody Loves Raymond finale was going to be a pretty typical episode. And that seemed to work because I don't recall any complaints about it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 12, 2011, 4:00 pm

2001: A Space Odyssey - Movie Series
There's an online reviewer that has pretty much made a name for himself for quite vocally panning this movie. Mostly the video is just him showing clips from the film and saying, "This is boring!" (He also says 2010 is the superior film.) Now it seems like 2001-bashing is the "hip" thing to do. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 10, 2011, 8:17 pm

Are there any good games for this? At all? I came across one of these for free and have yet to find any games unique to this system that don't suck. There are a few like Pac-Man and Tetris that are OK, but you get those for any game system. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 9, 2011, 6:29 pm

Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) - Random Topics
I once read somewhere an editorial calling the music industry hypocrites for the mixed message they send: "Rebel against society! Break all the rules! Swear, drink, do drugs! Have promiscuous sex! Join a gang! Bust a cap in yo' bitch's ass! It's all good!" And they then expect the kids raised on such values to act "virtuously" and pay for their shoddy product instead of downloading it. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 7, 2011, 3:13 pm

Almost Live! - TV Shows
There was an article a few years ago where they interviewed some of the old cast members and they also said the old Seattle culture has been destroyed. I had blamed the "Seattle Scene" of the early '90s (grunge music, Starbucks) for the huge influx of rude snobs to our state, but John Keister says it's more due to the IT boom. Here's the article: http://www.seattlepi.com/default/article/Former-Almost-Live-host-wistful-for-the-quirky-1255120.php -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 7, 2011, 2:45 pm

Reality Television - Random Topics
I lost my TV reception during the digital switchover (thanks to Presidents Bush and Obama), but I really don't miss it much. SO much reality garbage now. I don't get why people make fun of '70s variety shows; these reality shows are so much worse. I keep waiting for the fad to end, but it never does. Kind of like rap music. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 1, 2011, 3:09 pm

Untouchables, The (1993) - TV Shows
I remember William Forsythe started getting this huge ego and started acting like a big deva and future movie star. I think they had to write him out of the show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 30, 2011, 4:14 pm

Facebook - Websites
I use it because I'm lazy and don't get around to writing all my old friends via email, let alone snail mail. All I have to do is post there and everyone sees it. Here are the problems I'm encountering and how I've dealt with them, please advise me if there are better solutions. 1) People I don't remember trying to friend me. (I almost always decline these) 2) People I do remember from school but wasn't really friends with. (Some of these people are still sitting in friending purgatory because I don't know whether to allow or deny.) 3) Unwanted relatives. Ugh. There is a certain "trailer trash" branch of my family that I want nothing to do with. Their hardships in life are all due to their own utter incompetence and I don't want to deal with it. Yet if I deny them, it could cause friction in the family esp. for my parents. So because of this, I've allowed them, but have hidden them from view. 4) How do I comment on anything like current events, religion, or politics without starting a huge flame war between all of my friends? What I write there is really tame stuff compared to here, and I feel that it is boring because I have to sanitize it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 30, 2011, 12:50 am

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
I'll try to make this my last comment on this, but I have to say this stuff somewhere. If I say it on Facebook it will cause a huge civil war between my Democrat & Republican friends in real life. In recent years Kadaffi has cooperated with the US in getting rid of WMDs, nuclear programs and had started paying victims of their past terrorism. So, Kadaffi gets rid of his WMDs and nuclear programs at our request and gets attacked by us. What kind of example are we setting here!? Would we have done this if he had WMDs or nukes? If I were Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Kim Jong-il, I would be watching this and totally stocking up on WMDs. Finally, what if a general uprising (like in Egypt or Libya) against the Obama administration were to happen in the US? Would riot police and the National Guard sing folk songs and lullabies to the uprisers and let them on their merry way? Of course not. They'd be beaten and/or shot; we've seen it already in smaller-scale stuff like Kent State or WTO'99. Would it be as brutal as Libya? I don't know, but it wouldn't be pretty. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 29, 2011, 11:53 pm

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
I stumbled across some 9/11 WTC footage on YouTube while looking for something else and it depressed me to know we're never going to get this guy. Our "ally" Pakistan is probably harboring him and our "ally" Saudi Arabia is probably still funding him and the former and current administrations are too cowardly to confront them about it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 29, 2011, 9:14 pm

Titus - TV Shows
Poor Titus; the whole theme of this show (based on his real dysfunctional life) was how his whole family sucked except for his awesome wife. Then his wife left him shortly after this show was axed. It's just like when Howard Stern made that movie all about how great his wife is and she subsequently left him for some rich guy and took half his assets. Note to men in the industry: DON'T DO THIS!!! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 29, 2011, 8:59 pm

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
Agree guys. I thought the "lesson" from Iraq (and Iran) was that these ME countries "deserve" dictators or monarchs. Dethroning them seems to lead to widespread chaos, religious fanaticism, and violence. These societies simply aren't civilized enough to handle democracy. Besides the fact that with the Libya, both sides of the conflict would sooner see America dead, so why get involved? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 29, 2011, 1:49 pm
