Jan 7th 2011 8:55PM GOOD! I enjoyed all the essays and relationship stories, and then, poof! They were gone. I'll be looking for them on MyDaily. And speaking of the montage, have you seen the new Humane Society commercial, now set to Willie Nelson? Broke my heart! Now that Lemondrop is returning, all is right with the world. TGIF!
Jul 14th 2010 9:55PM To "John Gage," the guy who said that women are unstable and prefer assholes:
If that were the case, they'd flock to you in a heartbeat. And clearly that's not the case, because you have a lot of time to write internet posts degrading women.
Women don't love 'assholes.' They love nice guys who unfortunately sometimes end up displaying a lack of a willingness to commit or something else, and then of course you hear about that after the breakup. Women like kindness plus a personality. One without the other can be hard. But you'd think finding both would be easy!
Guys who complain that women only like jerks...are usually jerks. Which is why they are so bitter!
As for this woman, her boyfriend seemed interested in kids someday. She did nothing wrong by waiting and hoping. Luckily she got out in time. I hope she has a kid on her own rather than feel like she missed out. It's actually not that hard to have a kid on your own. Men can come along later.
Jul 14th 2010 9:47PM Part of the problem is, if you have a boyfriend, then you're not going to be able to talk about dating with any potential new friends you meet. Right away, that causes a problem.
Jul 12th 2010 4:12PM I just wanted to say that this was a very well written story. In a few paragraphs it gave me a good glimpse into an interesting person and personality.
Jul 1st 2009 11:20PM Loved this show as a 12 year old. Dwight Schultz was great. "I want a trash BAG! I want a trash BAG!"
Oct 17th 2008 5:22PM I thought the 2nd episode lost something. I love the 1973/2008 jokes (like when someone mentioned the Nixon administration and Sam said "don't get too attached") but the plot about chasing around a guy who hits up check cashing places....not too exciting or unique. The show will need more ways to stay fresh than just relying on the time travel gimmick - although I love it. I enjoy reminiscing as I watch.
I think your having seen the British version is clouding your ability to enjoy the American one. I think Keitel is fine, but maybe I wouldn't think so if I'd seen the British dude.
I agree with you on the soundrack. Glad there are some classic rock fans behind the show!
There are so few shows I keep up with these days, that I probably will try to keep up with this one, but I have a feeling I will fall behind soon.
Oct 10th 2008 4:55PM Having not seen the British version (only heard about it), I really enjoyed last night's premiere. It is always fun to see a character with knowledge of the present day go into the past and use those talents to be smarter than everyone else. The fun twist was that Sam's improvements from 2008 put him at a disadvatage sometimes during the policework, when compared with the police brutality and lawless behavior that the 1973 cops used to get the job done. The views of old New York and 1970s life in general were a lot of fun. They could (and likely will) do a lot more with that. Remember, the Son of Sam comes on the scene in just four years!
I saw that a few of the commenters mentioned the lack of recaps. Is that a site policy? Because I think a recap of the pilot might be a nice touch in addition to the very astute review above.
I thought Keitel was fine. I think if you don't try to compare to other versions, he comes off as really great.
I did love the soundtrack; clearly the preimere had a big budget. Some great classic rock there.
I thought the "Sam, I'm safe" thing at the end was a silly copout. There were a few things in the show that were a bit too obvious, but it's hard to get everything right. I just found the show really entertaining. Instead of worryign how it "ends," just enjoy what you have - hell, other police shows have gone on for 10 seasons. This one could, too. Besides, the American version of The Office is already outlasting the British one...not everything has to be exactly the same.
I'm sick of all the reality shows on tv, and I'm glad to see something different.
Jan 21st 2008 2:31PM I'm really enjoying your writing and reviews, Brad.
Oct 2nd 2007 1:46PM I have read your past work and think you are the PERFECT person to review South Park - I look forward to reading your posts!!
