The Event 
There's a big ad campaign going on now for some new TV show called The Event.

It looks exciting.

Am I going to watch it? HELL NO!

After the fiasco that was my fandom of Persons Unknown, I'll be damned if I'm going to start watching another new series that will probably end up being moved through 3 different time slots so I miss a few episodes and have no idea whether they're going to see it through to the end or not.

Fool me once...

If it's as good as they're making it out to be, maybe I'll pick it up once they get Season 2 going and the Blu-ray's get released...

What Happened to Brent Butt??? 
I just watched an hour long comedy show put together by Brent Butt.

I think it was called "The Brent Butt Comedy Special".

Honestly... I have absolutely no idea what made me stick it out and watch the whole hour.

Now I wasn't a rabid Corner Gas fan or anything, but I liked the episodes I saw. It seemed like a good show and Brent Butt seemed like a funny guy, but watching this special brought back to me memories of that one-episode series that Rosie O'Donnell put together a few years back.

There just wasn't a funny moment throughout the entire thing. It was like watching small train wrecks one after another, and hoping eventually there'd be some sort of grand finale that never comes. What was he thinking???

I guess if nothing else, I now know who Jully Black. For what it's worth, she's not funny either, and I hope to God she sounds better on her albums or in any other shows she does.

So that was that. Wasted an hour watching a rerun of some sadly unfunny comedy show.

Hope everyone's enjoying the long weekend so far! :)

Persons Unknown: NBC are Dicks 
Well, apparently I'm the only one watching this show, and NBC finds that very annoying.

I don't think they were happy that I managed to watch the last episodes after they changed the time slot, so they've gone and changed the dates entirely.

I really like this show... but I can't imagine how they could expect anyone to watch something if they keep shifting it around and never tell anyone what they're doing!

So screw you NBC. You've been showing ads all the way through telling us that we would see this through to its conclusion this summer. If you take it off the air and expect people to buy DVD's to see the end, then I hope you fail miserably not just on this show, but on anything else you try as well.

You can be sure that the next time NBC has a new show that I think looks interesting, I'll think twice and three times before committing to watching it!

Persons Unknown: Still Good 
Wife is starting to lose interest, but I'm still into it. Now that they've actually killed someone, I'm even more curious as to what the heck's going on!!

Oh... did I give something away?

I also keep looking forward to that idiot/rapist guy getting beat up in new and interesting ways. That's a pretty good subplot in itself!

On an unrelated note... the Dutch just missed what looked like a sure goal! Ouch!!

Persons Unknown: Ep. 2 
I watched the 2nd episode of Persons Unknown last night, and I'm still intrigued.

There's a few things worth mentioning.

Firstly, the mystery is still compelling enough to leaving me excited about next weeks episode. Without that, what's the point, right?

Secondly, they've made a big deal in the promo spots about the fact that it's a mini-series and that we'll know what's going on by the end of the summer. I can't help but wonder whether they're throwing a bone to us Lost fans who might be concerned that we're about to commit the next 6 years of our lives to another show.

I don't regret the time spent watching Lost. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It did make me happy at the end of the 4th season though when they announced when the end would come so we could all look forward to some sort of conclusion. With this new series, we're being given that up front. Hopefully it's not a scam and they don't let the success (which it will hopefully have) drag it outside the planned plotline.

Finally, I like the fact that they're already answering questions I've been asking. The end of the 2nd episode really amused me. I've wondered more than a few times "why aren't they bashing in the cameras??". Well... finally they knocked one out. The result was most excellent! :)

So... if you haven't watched it, you need to start from the beginning and get up to speed.

And if you're a racing fan but think you hate NASCAR... tune in this weekend for Sonoma's race on Infinion Raceway. NASCAR on the road courses is always great fun!!
