Without further ado, a continuation of our grading of the cast of Game of Thrones.
Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister Grade: A+
Comments: We’ve been fans of Peter Dinklage since The Station Agent, so we figured he’d be awesome as Tyrion. And he is.
Charles Dance as [...]
With the first season of Game of Thrones over and another two weeks before the fifth book, A Dance with Dragons, comes out we’re not quite sure what the hell to do with ourselves.
In an attempt to stave off withdrawal, we decided to grade the cast of Game of Thrones. As a whole, the [...]
“Louie” – FX, Tuesday 11 PM
Synopsis: Part autobiographical, documentary style show about the life of Louis CK, a misanthropic middle aged divorced comedian, part surreal weirdness… interspersed with bits of real stand-up footage. Our take: “Louie” is by far our favorite new show of the season. The stand-up alone makes [...]
- Every time Jeff Probst uttered the words “Medallion of Power,” I peed a little bit. He spoke of the medallion in a reverent, almost Gandalf-ish, tone. Clearly this thing is going to be like Link’s power bracelet, the boots of force from Wizards and Warriors and one of Mario’s hallucinogenic mushrooms rolled into one.
1. After two episodes, I can safely conclude that the most clever thing about ABC’s new series is the ironic title. Happy Town? Hardly. The show leaves audiences a mix of bored, angry, sad and inexplicably chafed in hard to clean areas. My understanding is that the working title was “Steven Weber on the [...]
In an early, draft of this list, we had Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie” ranked as high as #2, but over time it slid down to#6.
The show: “Nurse Jackie“
Synopsis: A Vicodin addicted nurse tries to balance a hectic work life with a messy love life Debuted: June 9th, 2009
Our take: I started [...]
Danny McBride’s HBO comedy, “Eastbound & Down,” comes in at #7. Of the 3 half hour comedies in our top 10, this is easily the foulest.
The show: “Eastbound & Down“ Synopsis: Former professional baseball star returns home in shame to teach a high school gym class before mounting his comeback attempt. Debuted: February 15th, [...]
Crap! Fall is here and we’ve falling behind on our rankings. Let’s try to speed this up. “True Blood” is up at number 8. The show is incredibly faithful to the whole vampire thing… and by that I mean it sucks.
Please pass the remote.
The show: “True Blood“ Synopsis: Girl bangs vampire. Debuted: [...]
I must have gotten through with the firm talking-to I gave Nurse Jackie last time around, because things are finally starting to happen. On the romantic front, Eddie tries to give Jackie a bracelet in honor of their one-year anniversary. It doesn’t play out so well- Jackie clearly doesn’t remember the anniversary, nor does she [...]
