2007 Top Ten Best TV Things



1. WGA strike-It gave me plenty of time to do other stuff without having to record late night let's hope it last until May.

2. Journeyman-A cross between Quantum Leap and It's a Wonderful Life that makes TV fun again.



3. John from Cincinnati-The only reason it was not number 1 is that I couldn't figure the plot. This show was what happens when art meets drugs. The acting was the best on TV in years.

4. Heroes- Great story lines that never went too far. It kept pace with the previous season.

5. The Shield-A hard show to watch if you have faith in humanity. It is not realistic but it's damn entertaining.

6. Kyle XY- Like Heroes it kept pace and didn't drift off into super-weird-fantasies despite bringing on the XX.

7. Rescue Me-Sick and funny.

9. Californication-Sex sells and that is the entire show, okay there is the depressing main character who you root for even though he gets himself into all his problems.

10. Big Bang Theory-Old fashioned comedy that works great.

Accursed TV

I feel bad for the last post so let's move on.

Over the years I've watched enough network TV to see a lot of things pass that shouldn't. During a 20/20 special about child actress turn porn star, Jamie Foxworthy the showed a clip of her porn and they accidentally left some unblurred images.
Also they use to give late movies on ABC that were terrible and many times weren't blurred during quick nude scenes and they made it on the air, but this was the late 1980s - early 1990s. Now with computers and DVRs most of that is gone.

But there still is live TV and cursing. Yes every live game has some cursing from rude fans but scripted shows should know better. Here are two recent examples I found.

Attack of the Show: Olivia Munn curses and the bleep guy is way off


Next was a local news show WPIX channel 11 in NYC when a liar and criminal on the subway attacked some drunk guy for wishing everyone a Happy Chanukah.

Maybe I'll post something more Christmasy tomorrow.

I hate gossip but...

Former Child Star Fishel Arrested

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Former child star Danielle Fishel, a teen heartthrob on ABC's"Boy Meets World," was arrested this week on a drunken driving warrant from Los Angeles County, police said.

Fishel was arrested Thursday just before 5 a.m. after officers stopped a car she was in, said Newport Beach Sgt. James Rocker. She was released from jail shortly after her arrest.

Fishel grew up in Yorba Linda and spent more than seven years playing Topanga, the love interest of "Boy Meets World" star Ben Savage.

In 2006, Fishel became the spokeswoman for NutriSystem after she announced on The Tyra Banks show that she was so thrilled about losing 20 pounds with the diet program that she wanted to be the company's spokeswoman.

In February, Fishel became a special correspondent for the Tyra Banks show.

She was my favorite and first she had that whole Lance Bass as a boyfriend then people called her fat. She needs a hug.

What else is left?

I've still been watching scattered television mostly documentaries.

Here's a short list of what I still watch.
Attack of the Show...It's live!
Little People, Big World...Little Conflict, Big Problems.
Jon and Kate plus 8...Cute kids, funny dad, awful mom.
Local news...I need my fix of pot hole reports.
Pushing Daisies...Quirky but nice.

Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale was one of the most depressing comedy episodes ever.
It was great but too long and so sad.

Whew , I've been busy...

...but thank all that is good there's been a writers strike which will hopefully last until May.

Unlike the whiny Broadway strike this one is legit. Other issues the writers should resolve with there time off is how to stop all these spoilers. Spoilers have been ruining TV for the last few years and writing scared is also not good(JJ Abrams and boys who don't grow).


When the new episodes return I expect on location filming. All the money being saved by networks should insure better sets and when running down the streets of NY let it actually be NY.


The 4400 and The Dead Zone have been canceled as they should've been.

Journeyman
Great damn show. We see Dan Vassar traveling through time with his ex and save people. His ex Livia Beale is traveling through time from the 1950s. Apparently they are the last two time travelers and that it is a naturally occurring phenomenon that is dying off.
The show ended nicely with Dan accepting his fate while his wife watched. This show should not be canceled.

Tin Man
Awful in every way. Bad acting, awful effects, weak storyline.
Basically we see The Wizard of Oz a thousand year after Dorothy Gale landed there.

Dexter
Great show. It kept pace with the previous season and got better without having to rely on blood and gore.
