So, my 8-year-old daughter and I are walking through a Hallmark store this week when we notice that they have the Christmas ornaments out. (I know, that is another topic) Anyway, she saw this…
…and she says, “Look Papa, The Wiggles!” I had never noticed it, but now that she mentioned it…
Aren’t kids great!
p.s. If you don’t have kids, this post probably won’t make any sense to you.
Geraldo is on the scene.
I love Netflix.
I have one Netflix friend so far and am looking for more people to share movies with.
If you would like to join my friends list, drop me a line with your email and I will add you to my list. Or send me an invite using the email in the sidebar.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Syndicated columnist Liz Smith reported today that Rob Lowe will return to NBC’s West Wing for at least five episodes next November. Although Smith does not site any sources, she claims that Martin Sheen was instrumental in bring Lowe back.
Now, if we could only get Aaron Sorkin back.
It’s called the Slingbox and, if you love your television, you need one. Simply plug your TV, cable box, or antenna into the Slingbox and you can control your television, cable, Tivo, or DVR. There are no monthly fees but you do need broadband. Riding in the backseat during cross-country road trips will never be the same.
Just watched the 2-hour lost. Did anyone notice the Star Trek connection? In Star Trek, they would always take a security officer down to the planet with them and he would, inevitably, die. LOST used a science teacher instead, played by Daniel Roebuck. (I love that guy!) Good way to build tension, I guess.
Over all, I wasn’t too impressed. Not enough questions were answered this year. I wonder if they wrote a bible or are writing form the hip.
So, you follow a television show all season; sitting down every week at the same time watching the people you have grown to love, or despise, as the case may be. Then, the time comes for the season finale. You sit down; same time, same channel and what do you get? You missed it. There were two finales this week that I planned to watch and both were aired early. Now, I’m sure that it was advertised somewhere, but I don’t listen to ads. I just watch my shows. Lucky I was looking at my on-screen guide and caught the change. Why do television executives change the days and times of season finales? My wife has a theory; she thinks that they do it on purpose so that we will have to watch the reruns.
Does anyone have an answer for this?
And while we are on the subject; why did WEST WING end a month early?
I miss Aaron Sorkin.
What’s this? The Open Media Network has launched their new site, which allows users to download, for free, television and radio programs. Okay, it’s mainly public television and radio stuff, but it’s a start. I still don’t know why I can’t download that episode of LOST that I missed. Maybe this is a start.
