‘Hollywood is like a guy who looks at a cemetery and thinks, “Hey, think of all the corpses in there just waiting to be fucked.”‘

This is the truest statement I’ve heard in longer then I care to remember.

I’m glad to hear you liked The Mentalist; it’s one of the few new shows I plan to try this season. I’m a sucker for stories about cold readers and conmen, and the lead character’s past (and the show’s seeming stance that all this life-after-death stuff is b.s.) is right up my alley.

But isn’t Simon Baker the lead of the Mentalist?

That quote on Hollywood is like, the best quote ever.

But where’s this Aftermath show on in the States? I love post-apocalyptic stuff… and I think it will be better viewing than the debates. (Please let Obama destroy McCain in the debates please please please…)

Oh bless you for not liking Heroes in general. While the first season was airing, I thought I was insane. So many otherwise intelligent people were praising it as blowing away, for instance, “Lost”. Now the meme is that the second season was “disappointing” after the “terrific first season”, but to my mind it was always, yes, moderately entertaining fluff, and the second season was just when they ran out of ideas. Actually I’d say they ran out of ideas halfway through season one, but that’s just me.

I only ever saw the first episode of Heroes, and thought it was shit. When people started saying how great it was, I started thinking maybe I should go back and watch it. But then everyone said the second season was shit, and now I just kind of feel like I was right all along.

I take it that Worst Week is based on the British show The Worst Week of My Life – on the basis that they have the same premise. That’s a bad sign, because the British show was terrible and that had Sarah Alexander and Ben Miller, who are awesome.

To be fair, the first episode of Heroes was terrible even by their standards. It did build up a bit of momentum during the subsequent episodes, and for a brief moment it looked like they were about to go someplace interesting–when Future Hiro showed up and seemed to suggest where the show was headed. Then they backpedaled like madmen and pissed all that away.

Yeah, what Prankster said. For a bit there it looked like Heros was going to be really cool, then suddenly not so much.

Now they just are ripping off recent, and not-so-recent, X-Men plots.

Hooray! :(
