I was about to start this review with the complaint that Jackass 3D relied a little too much on the poo, vomit, and scrotum gags. And then I realized how dumb that would sound. After all, isn’t that what Jackass is all about?
Instead, what I’ll say is this: the latest installment of the tv/movie [...]
“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 [...]
As a fan of J.J. Abrams, I was looking forward to this one the most. Unfortunately, I was already saying “meh” at the 10 second mark. Too cheesy. Then I got to “sexspionage” and I kinda wanted to throw up.
Friends With Benefits
I was pleasantly [...]

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 [...]
Of all of Fox’s recent attempts at the science fiction genre, “Fringe” looks like the most likely to succeed. It made number 9 on our list of best new shows.
There was something important. . . Oh! I've decided on the pancakes. Blueberry.
The show: “Fringe” Synopsis: Remember the “The X-Files“? [...]
In this week’s episode, Paula, a former friend and coworker of Jackie’s returns to the hospital. She’s dying of cancer and has been given only a week or so to live. With little more than a *wink wink*, she convinces Jackie (and the rest of the staff) to help her euthanize herself.
The issue of [...]
