Ignorance, Free Speech And Duck Dynasty

Phil Robertston From Duck Dynasty

As I’ve said many times in the past, there are some topics that will always start an argument. The most universally known of these are politics & religion (hence the reason I rarely talk about them in public).  Today, I’m adding Duck Dynasty to that list. In case you’ve missed it, the “star” of A&E’s reality hit Duck Dynasty Phil Robertson is in a bit of trouble based on an interview he did recently.  He was … Continue reading

A Surprising But Welcome Email – AMC Is Back On Dish!!!

DISH Customers - AMC Is Back

I received an email yesterday afternoon that shocked the hell out of me.  In fact, when I first read the headline I thought it may have been a prank: “DISH Customers: AMC Is Back!” I immediately did some Googling and sure enough found out that the legal battle between DISH Network and Cablevision which had caused AMC to be removed from my channel lineup had in fact been settled!  So I’m getting back one of … Continue reading

The Dish & AMC Battle

In case you haven’t heard, cable station AMC and cable provider DISH are in a bitter battle these days.  Naturally, there are two sides to any story.  Here’s the “real story” according to AMC from their site http://www.keepamcnetworks.com THE REAL REASON DISH IS DROPPING AMC NETWORKS… In a ruling filed on Thursday, April 26, 2012, the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court denied DISH’s application to further appeal a prior trial court decision … Continue reading

Time Warner FAIL

Time Warner Cable Logo

Last night was the series finale of Lost on ABC.  We pulled together an impromptu viewing party (OK, so it was the in-laws, the wife and I, but that’s still a gathering dammit) and settled in to watch one of the most beautiful shows on TV come to an end.  That is until Time Warner Cable got involved.  The high definition feed was so bad that we eventually had to switch over to the regular … Continue reading

The Confusion Ends Sunday… Maybe

Lost On ABC

Don’t worry… this post contains no spoilers.  I couldn’t spoil you if I wanted to. The series finale of ABC’s Lost airs on Sunday evening and so (hopefully) does my confusion.  I consider myself a Lost fan for sure, but I’m not a Lost geek.  The distinction is minor, but one that’s important to make between fans.  As an example, I have no problem sitting in a bar talking theories with my buddy Pat about … Continue reading

The V Season (Not Series) Finale

V On ABC

Tonight is the season finale of V on ABC and I’m thrilled to say that it’s just the season finale and not the SERIES finale.  There was a time there where I was very worried that V would not be picked up for another season based on how it was doing in the ratings.  Now that it has been picked up, the writers better make some serious changes if they want to get to a … Continue reading

Best Survivor Ever

Russell Hantz

Last night the finale of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains aired on CBS and for the second time, Sandra Diaz-Twine was named the winner.  Also for the second time, the best player in the history of the game came up short.  I’ve watched every single episode in the 20 seasons of Survivor and I’m confident in saying that Russell Hantz is the best player ever.  Period, end of story.  The game’s tag line is “Outwit, Outlast, … Continue reading

At Long Last… Lost Is Back

Lost On ABC

It seems like forever and a day but tomorrow night Lost on ABC will finally return for it’s final season.  I’ve written in previous posts how I wondered if ABC had made a mistake by keeping Lost (and another show V) off the air for so long.  Well I can’t speak for everyone but I can tell you that for ME it wasn’t too long cause I’m pumped as hell about the season premiere tomorrow … Continue reading

And Now We Have To Wait… But Why Would We?

V On ABC

I imagine by now everyone that’s going to has watched the last episode of ABC’s V.  In case you don’t know (as if ABC wasn’t beating you over the head with it) this was the last episode of the year.  ABC has chosen not to compete with the Olympics and is not giving us new episodes of V until March 2010.  I’m a huge fan of the original miniseries so they already had me hooked … Continue reading

Tuesday Night = V Night

V On ABC

I’ve finally had a chance to watch the pilot episode of ABC’s V and I have to say that I’m REALLY happy with the way it turned out!  I won’t bother going into a recap here cause there are literally thousands of podcasts, blogs, etc. out there that will do that for you.  That said, I was so exicted about the show’s return that I figured I needed to do a follow up with a … Continue reading
