My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
Frankly, they had me at Bill Pullman.
Only if he fights aliens again. That should be in Bill Pullman’s contract: if he plays a president, he must fight aliens, and at least once a season if it is a full series and not a miniseries or movie.
You’ve been talking about the Raptors . . . what’s your reaction to every fifth player going to the Blue Jays? Y’all better treat R.A. Dickey well. Stupid Mets . . .
early enough that you aren’t so deeply in the Christmas spirit that you fail to realize that the moral of the special is basically “you are worthless until you are needed by authority.”
Yeah, I don’t remember how old I was when I finally figured out that the message of Rudolph was actually kind of terrible.
I do remember being in middle school and realizing that the Santa in the Rudolph special is kind of a dick. As are most of his elves. And his reindeer. In fact I think what cheesed me off about the message is that it seemed to me that it was “you’re worthless until the dicks realize that you can do something for them, then they’ll like you”.
what’s your reaction to every fifth player going to the Blue Jays?
You have to understand that sports fans in Toronto are unaccustomed to their teams acting like they are in an enormous media market and therefore “spending money” to “win games.” Really, it is kind of a novelty around here.
