Plea to The CW

Move it out of the way now! Wednesdays at 9pm is a total death slot vs. Bionic Woman & Private Practice. Move it before it dies a premature've already put so much time and effort into the hype - I'm thinking Tuesdays in the 8pm spot - it would put the GG back where it belongs in the lineup. =)

Flight of the Phoenix

On my list of movies to see for some reason. Old-fashioned, "hopes and dreams" picture - sweeping landscape and a lot of character building.

Musings on Chuck

I saw this pilot a little while ago, not last night when it "premiered."

This is one those shows that I feel like I was supposed to love or hate. I have watched it at least 3 times, and still can't quite figure out what was missing. I think it's because the show is not totally tongue-in-cheek (remember Sledgehammer?), it's not totally serious (like Alias), and this in-between hybrid thing, I'm not so sure about. Hopefully, as time progresses, the tone will change to one or the other.

Double Feature: I Think I Love My Wife/Broken English

Short changed as a comedy and as a drama, it was like this film couldn't quite decide what it wanted to be "when it grew up". The premise was decent, and the actors are likeable, but the roles were all one-dimensional.


Sweet little movie that seemed forced as far as plot. It was just "too easy" for the main character to have all this time as a unhappy singleton and then voila? Chemistry between Posey and suitors seemed non-existent; she had the most with de Matteo, who played her best friend. Liked it anyway, but wouldn't recommend it.

Double Feature: The Ex/The Punisher

Not even passable as a sitcom. For as many well-known actors (and likeable), I thought there would be a few highlights; one could only hope that it was more fun to make than to watch.


Pretty standard anti-hero film. Some of Travolta's lines (as the badguy) were so cheesy that you had to inwardly chuckle and groan. Liked T.Jane as The Punisher even though he doesn't look like he's from Latino descent (part of the character's history).
