My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
Natalie Morales was fired from “Are You There, Chelsea?” after the pilot.
It freed her up for a recurring role on the new Sorkin show though, and AYTC looks awful, so it’s probably for the best.
It’s not fair to make fun of Adam Beach’s medical condition. Life is hard enough when you got the squink.
Rob Schneider has apparently run out of movie executives to annoy into letting him do films, and he probably really, really, really needs the money, so now he’s annoying television execs.
And Russell Crowe turning up on a Canadian television show as a guest isn’t that surprising… considering that Alan Doyle from Great Big Sea is also guesting, and the two of them are good friends. It might also be a good way to give American networks the finger.
Not big on crime/detective shows, eh? Then I guess you won’t mind if I write a massive essay dedicated to shitting on ‘The Wire’ right here and right now.
Oh come now. The Wire isn’t a “crime show.” The crimes are never really the focus of the story. It’s a show about societal breakdown.
I keep thinking it’s iRob and wonder how hard of times has Cheech fallen on with this and the Food Network show.
You hated Napoleon Dynamite? But that movie was the best thing ever! Everyone said so!
That “Finder” show had a stealth pilot back on an episode of “Bones”, but that was so long ago I figured it went nowhere. Seemed destined to fail anyway, guess we’ll find out!
I wish to apologise humbly, deeply, and sincerely for doubting you regarding “Are You There, Chelsea ?”
That was dreadfully poor. Pulling the plug would be a mercy.
