Everything Must Go Part 2
Hey, great the Dems took over the House. Let’s not fuck it up this time around, okay? Is any one really surprised that Arnold took the governor race in a landslide? It just seems as if Phil threw in the towel as soon as he won the primaries. The weird thing about California is that nobody is paying attention to what’s happening with our local government. We’re too focused in on saving the rest of the country to realize our own problems. Well, take that back, unless a celebrity says that we’re fucking things up locally, then we finally start to pay attention to the matter, but it can only be Conan. Only Conan or the Terminator will get California voters to wake up. Cause I got a call from The Sundance Kid about voting yes on 87 and I want to believe that many others got the same call and as it stands, 87 didn’t pass or at least at the time this was written, it didn’t pass. Enough politics. Let’s move on.
I don’t know what it is; perhaps, the movies are finally starting to get better than TV, but TV has truly been real shitty these past couple of days. I was nearly attacked by an angry classroom the other day by declaring that “Heroes,” is a show with a great storyline, but with awful characters, terrible actors and even worse direction. The classroom including one of the professors was at my throat, but they could not defend the show. Thinking about it, it’s not even a nice looking show; it just looks cheap, but I come back because I want to understand why they have to save the cheerleader. And they never get to it on the show; it’s just a bunch of bullshit about that Ali Larter character looking into a mirror. When did the show become a Sofia Coppola film? Is the show just going to about the Japanese guys on a road trip to New York and that fucking wiener guy talking about how he and his brother flew together?
Back to a point for a moment, maybe if the show had better production values, I’d take it more seriously. I’m not expecting the thing look like “Deadwood,” or even “Lost,” but come on, “Weeds” has better production values. If “Heroes” is supposedly the show that is saving NBC, then it should look like it. Spend less money on the clothes for those “Deal or No Deal” girls. “Heroes,” by what, its sixth or seventh episode has already reached that plateau “Lost” during its second season. Nothing happening for episode after episode. There’s no reason why the storyline should be dragging through the mud like it is now. Bottle rocket that shit up.
The superhero related show one should be watching instead of “Heroes” or at least in tandem with “Heroes” is Adult Swim’s “Frisky Dingo”. Consistently funny, but it’s tucked away on Sunday nights. Set your DVRs or at least torrent a couple of episodes.
“V.Mars” was pretty shitty, too. Man, I think everything in terms of TV just sucks. Everything else in the world, is pretty solid, but TV blows.
