I just got finished watching the National Geographic channel’s “9/11: Science and Conspiracy” special. Personally, I enjoyed the Popular Mechanics special more, but the Nat Geo show wasn’t so much about the science of the 9/11 attacks as it was the reaction of “truthers” to evidence that undermines their theories. If it wasn’t obvious by […]
I’ve already told you I don’t watch much in the way of network TV. This past week the two network shows I do watch, “Veronica Mars” and “Heroes,” came to an end. If you watch either of these shows and haven’t seen the final episodes yet on your TiVo, then skip the rest of this […]
TV Network The CW doesn’t have much of a following. It’s got one cult hit that has been steadily growing through word-of-mouth, but the TV execs have decided they’d rather kill it than cultivate it. Veronica Mars got the ax. Instead, the CW will give us more “Who wants to be a scantily clad pole […]
I don’t watch a whole lot of television entertainment shows. For a period of several years I didn’t watch any at all — I watched a variety of news shows, wrote this blog and played video games. Lately, however, I’ve been hooked on “Heroes” on NBC and I belatedly jumped on the “Veronica Mars” bandwagon […]
I must confess that I never really knew his name, though I saw it just about every day. Iwao Takamoto, creator of my favorite childhood television show, “Scooby Doo, Where are you?” has died.
So, I haven’t been writing as much because I’ve been catching up on some TV watching. A couple of people at work finally got me hooked on the TV show “Veronica Mars” and I’ve been making my way through the DVDs of the first two seasons before catching up on the current season. I should […]
Hundreds of channels and nothing good is on, so I’m flipping and I come across CMT’s (Country Music Television) 40 sexiest videos show…. Wait for it… hosted by Roseanne Barr.
Last year, I noted how the Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters show has this tendency — probably as a result of lawyers — of assuming that they can keep information about various basic science facts out of the public domain by just “bleeping” out certain facts. Well, they’ve done it again. The latest show featuring “exploding pants” […]
I’m a big “Mythbusters” fan and often watch an episode (I’ve got my DVR set to record them) when I’ve got 45 minutes to kill. So, I’m watching an episode called “Confederate Rocket” and they’re trying to recreate a rumored Civil War-era rocket that reportedly flew about 100 miles. At various stages in their mythbusting, […]
