Weekend Entertainment Goodness

  1. I saw The Descent, too! The flaws were numerous, but hubby ended up having a nightmare about the creatures and woke up in a cold sweat. I have to bust your balls about the “hotness” comment. The ladies weren’t supposed to be “hot,” by which I can only assume you mean their boobs weren’t big enough or they didn’t pout at the camera, or something, because they were athletic, confident, attractive women, not sex kittens. They fit the story.

    You know, I had a nightmare about an episode of The Simpsons and The X-Files one night several years ago; I’m not one to talk. As for hotness — bust all you want. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I stand by my sexist comment. NOT HOT. 😛

    The Dark Tower books…It’s crack, indeed. Now go back to the olden days, when there were only three published and I had to wait seven years to read the fourth. I’m sure that seven years was mostly like any other, but I remember it as dark and lonely.

    Yeah, that’d be bad. In that regard, I’m VERY glad I waited until it was completed to start it. Whether my paltry library has them all remains to be seen.

    1. I read every book Stephen King has ever fancied himself to write. LOVE HIM. A couple were out there more than usual, but then again he is too sometimes. I was not a huge fan of the Dark Tower series. Just not his syle. Maybe that’s why some people liked it! 🙂

      Penelope, welcome, and thanks for commenting! Yes, I adore King’s work too. He’s the writer I’ve always aspired to be. But, he does sometimes disappoint me with his over-the-top-big-finishes, which can (and have) ruin an otherwise brilliant story. But he is my favorite; always was, always will be. I loved TDT, though; and it’s odd because I can’t say why. Classic King prose, interesting and different setting, VERY different storyline. Love it.

    2. I sounded cranky up there, didn’t I? I wasn’t, just joshin’ ya.

      Pff, stop. You’re fine, it didn’t sound cranky, and even if you were bein’ snarky, I missed it, so there. Relax; you’re among friends here.

  2. Not sure if this was a new episode or a rerun, but last night’s episode of The Family Guy was three quick parodies of some of Stephen King’s stories: Stand By Me, Misery and Shawshank. It wasn’t very funny.

    Too bad. Then again, I’ve never found The Family Guy very funny.

  3. 1.) I actually spent six months of my life going through the Dark Tower series in its audiobook format. What a wild and crazy trip it was. I am interested in hearing what you think of the ending when you get there. I was happy with it but then again I dedicated ‘CANADIAN GIRLFRIEND’ to my Mom so my perspective is skewed.

    No, DT rocks. On THAT, you’re okay. The mom thing? Not so much.

    2.) THE DESCENT rocked… I didn’t see any of the flaws you pointed out, maybe it is because there is still a part of my brain that doesn’t sees DOCTOR WHO and KOLCHAK as high art.

    I loved Kolchak: The Night Stalker. I haven’t seen it since I was a kid, but it was awesome. Doctor Who I don’t follow, so I can’t say. The Descent? Meh. But, hey, that’s why they make chocolate AND vanilla, right?

    3.) I used to love FAMILY GUY and while they can still hit it out of park once in a while but it feels to me like they’re coasting somehow. That being said I think that the writing on AMERICAN DAD is hillarious and the scripts are very well put together.

    I dunno; I’m sick of politics, especially in my cartoons. I just want amusing, and I get an agenda everywhere, and it’s usually counter to what I believe, so screw it. If I want to get pissed off I’ll join a debate club. That’s just me, though. And you’re not alone in believing it’s a funny show.

    4.) There is no #4

    Now, THAT’S a brilliant point. 😉
