OK, here's the thing about cable TV. 500 channels and nothing to watch. Why? Specialization of labor. What's on your regular networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX)? Everything. Sitcoms, dramas, movies, news, sports, late night and daytime talks shows, syndicated reruns. Cable stations specialize. ESPN does sports. Fox News and CNN do news. Cartoon Network and Comedy Central are self-explanitory. And it's not just content, it audience too. MTV aims for young Gen X'ers and Gen Y'ers. VH1 goes for older Gen X'ers. Nickelodeon is for kids. Spike TV is for guys, while Lifetime is for women. Most stations maybe have a half hour of programming you may be interested in PER WEEK, This is why there's nothing to watch!! Out of the 500 stations, you'll only watch a handful on a regular basis, and they're not always going to be showing the stuff you want to watch.

So, Dennis Farina replaced Jerry Orbach on "Law & Order". Upgrade!! I liked Orbach on that show, but Farina comes off as a scarier hardass. Orbach doesn't intimidate me, Farino would.

I bet Macaulay is jealous that his brother Kieran is having a more successful (or at least normal) acting career than he is.

OK, so "Seed of Chucky" makes 5, right? Only horror movies can get away with making so many sequels...

You have to be amazed by how the writers and creators of "Stargate SG-1" have used ancient mythology to establish alien civilizations. Gou'alds as Egyptian deities. Thor and the Asgard taking on the roles of the Norse Gods. However, it is too bad that they don't use figures from religions in active practice. Guess they don't want to go around offending people.

Speaking of "Stargate", when did Teal'c become such a smooth pimp? Must be the hair...

Someone should really do a cover of the Modern English tune, "I Melt With You". Preserve most of the same elements: drum beat, bass line, the humming. Add a stronger electric guitar. Tweak the synthesizer. I'm telling you, it would be excellent.

You know, you go over the things you want to say in you head, and they sound great. Then you start saying them out loud, and they seem so pathetic.

Hey, don't get upset with me. You're the one reading this crap...
