Highs & Lows since 8/8/08

Olympic Opening Ceremony
Great, beautiful, skillful, etc.

My favorite part was the raising of the Olympic rings.

NBC's Olympic Coverage
Horrid. Tape delays are ridiculous in a modern world. I said it last Olympics please show each event live on one of your 7 NBC channels and if I choose to TiVo it then I will. If not I'll just not watch the events and go online for the results.

Bernie Mac
50 years old when he died! This guy was funny I watched nearly every sitcom he was on.
He had a reality show, another sitcom, and 2 movies coming out next season. That is such a shame.

BBC America
So many interesting shows on this channel and freakin' Cablevision/Optimum does not carry this channel.

J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets! Jets!
Yes we got an old, semi-retired, crybaby, with more bumps on his head than dimples on a golf ball. I do think it's a good thing. Welcome to NY/NJ Brett Favre .


  1. As an English person, this post made absolutley no sense to me at all...


    I just wish I could get more space easily on my Sky+ box. I know I can take out the hard drive and swap it, but I wish there was some simple USB2 interface I could plug into it or something.

  2. Look who's talking I had to Google Sky+ box to understand.

    My cable box is simple no hard drive.

    Sky+ is great, but it's got so many basic faults, as if no one ever "user tested" it. Space is too small, you can't go more than a week ahead most of the time etc.

    Still the best thing we have, but so limiting and frustrating at times.

TV is educational. If you can't learn something everyday your box is broken.
