The Chris Isaak Show (2001)
This is a good show. I almost forgot about it having ever existed until happening to stumble across it here today, but it brings back pleasant memories of a television viewer who remembers finding it funny and charming.
Chris Isaak does better than I would have assumed he would do as an actor based on the fact that he is obviously much more of a musician/singer.
It was original and odd but in a fun and charming way. The woman in his conscience was interesting, and his band/friends added some pretty funny moments with him playing off of them as a capable and very funny himself "straight man."
24 Hour Rental (2014)
Please Never Broadcast This Garbage Again!
This show is so bad I can not believe that any network every made it or put it on their channel in the first place, how could they not realize how awful this show is? From the acting to the directing to the sets and lighting and writing and everything else this show is a huge failure!
Whoever is responsible for making this show should be banned from ever working again in television for the rest of their natural lives, it's that bad.
It's a comedy that is not even close to ever being funny. The actors are all terrible or maybe they are just not trying because they realize how awful this show is and are just doing a job to pick up some quick money. The stories are stupid and predictable. Plus who wants to watch a show about a movie rental place that was made after 1999 which is the last year I think anyone on planet earth rented a movie?
Ground Floor (2013)
I have watched five episodes of this show and I will not be watching any more, I feel like I gave it more than enough chances to entertain me and the bottom line is I haven't just failed to laugh once at this show, I'm not entertained or interested in any of the stories and don't even like most of the characters. The lead actors are not very good at all.
I am surprised this has a season two but that's OK, I don't have to watch it and obviously this show just is not for me. I am really disappointed actually because the guy who played the doctor on Scrubs was really good, and it's not like he is bad in this show but he just doesn't have any good material or characters to work with here. Real shame.
Densha otoko (2005)
This movie is good. The acting is very good for a bunch of people who you have never heard of (maybe they are well known actors in Japan but here I have never heard of them before in my life), I liked them and the characters they were playing. I identified with them and ended up almost crying several times at what was going on between them in the movie.
It's a very moving and touching movie but also quite funny at times. It is a very simple premise but it kept our interest through the whole movie. The only real downside is that the way the story is told sometimes gets a bit boring visually.
This movie is fantastically entertaining! We laughed and were entertained from the start to the finish, I had no idea what to expect. Thought it would just be another regular slasher, horror movie, but instead it was incredibly fun and on top of that very, very, very funny!
The amount of gore was amazing but mostly it was for fun/funny/entertainment value. I wasn't really scared or frightened for any of this movie.
Didn't even realize it had such a huge name director until visiting this page :)
Storage Wars Canada (2013)
If You're Going To Be So Obviously Fake, At Least Be Entertaining!
This show is the WORST. I am especially upset because I am a fan of the original show.
This show fails in pretty much every single respect at making a reality TV show.
I should say reality-ish because this show is obviously totally fake. I'm not going to take them all the way down to a one out of ten rating just for that because tons of reality shows aren't exactly real. But this one takes the case. Shots of conversations but then another camera clicks on and you see that the camera we just saw a shot from is not there. Empty hallway or lot. That means all these arguments, conversations and confrontations are 100% staged.
That's probably why the bidders (actors) all seem so fake on this show, because they and every moment are. Their performances are wooden and pathetic.
So if you're not really caring if it looks totally fake then why not at least get decent actors?
Why not tell decent stories? It's the exact same story every time. They buy a locker that has something in it (obviously an interesting and or valuable piece that has been planted there). They take the thing to an "expert" friend they just happen to know. They cash in. The staged, fake arguments that are boring get settled but who cares because they're obviously fake and boring?
Why does every Canadian version of a show have to be so completely inferior?
Wearing a Hawaiian shirt and having a girl pretend to be a giant b- witch does not mean they are interesting characters.
Return to Blood Fart Lake (2012)
About What You Would Expect
The quality of this movie is about what you would expect from a movie with a title like "Return to Blood Fart Lake." Apparently this is a sequel to a movie called (surprise surprise) "Terror at Blood Fart Lake" where they supposedly kill the psycho murderer at the end. I haven't seen that one and suppose that maybe I would have enjoyed this movie more if I had seen that one first. There do seem to be a number of "inside jokes" in it.
Anyway (again surprise surprise) the killed isn't actually dead at all so they return (because like most people in horror movies they are intensely stupid and choose to run TOWARD the danger) to find out if it's true and to finish the job.
Not much to say. Some terrible acting, cheesy predictable deaths, bad jokes and stupid writing, then they kill the killer. Or do they? I guess it depends on whether they make enough money selling this stink bomb to do a third movie.
I hope not.
Package Deal (2013)
Package Deal Doesn't Deliver
I know that is a terrible pun title and sorry about that but I just couldn't resist!
Package Deal is a decent premise for a show but I think it has a lot of problems.
First outside of Harland Williams I think the cast is totally lacking in the comedy department. I'm sure they have good acting chops otherwise but I think comedy is a different kind of talent and none of them make me laugh. I particularly find the other brother's performance painful. The female star is definitely attractive and doesn't grate on me like the guys (other than Harland Williams) do, but for the most part all of the non-Williams performances rate somewhere between "not funny" and "someone please make it stop!!!"
Second the writing is terrible. Why does this successful 40-ish lawyer allow his loser brothers to wander into his home even before he has his girlfriend move it? If not then certainly after she moves in wouldn't any sane person change the locks?
Things happen in the show that are simply impossible to believe, even in a suspension of disbelief kind of way. Seriously in one episode Harland Williams strips in a court room in front of a judge and bailiffs who do absolutely nothing, then in the very next scene we find out he got arrested on the street for being naked. So if you want us to buy it's okay to get nude in public, okay, but then don't tell us in the very next scene it's suddenly illegal again. Gah!
Also in that same episode Harland Williams pretends to be his successful lawyer brother, brings a girl home, and while he's sleeping she somehow empties the entire apartment... entire apartment as in every single thing down to a safety pin on the floor is gone. He didn't wake up during this? How did she manage to get all that stuff out, even if she brought in help (which she apparently didn't)? Finally WHY would anyone want to steal absolutely everything including dishes, pens, some random dude's clothes and underwear? Making it even more stupid, when the brother comes home (I guess luckily he was out all night) he's angry but not furious and the only thing he cares about is that the gift he bought for his girlfriend has been taken. Super sorry cause that's super sweet and all but don't you think if someone stole absolutely everything he owned he'd maybe be angry about THAT stuff? It's not like the gift was irreplaceable and his TV and stuff alone are worth way more.
Even if you get past the horribly obvious plot holes and poor writing over all, the writing is still terrible on a basic level of "funny vs not funny" with painfully obvious, predictable and just plain bad jokes. Being delivered poorly by a mostly unfunny cast doesn't help either, but the writing is just plain bad, awful, terrible.
Whoever is producing/directing this show is doing a very poor job and I can't figure out who decided to give this show a second season or why.
I imagine it is solely because Harland Williams is in this, because he's the only thing I like about the show and he's the only reason why I'm bumping the rating up from a 1 to a 3 out of 10.
3 out of 10 from me.
What a snoozer! I yawned a million times this was so totally boooooriiiiing!
Uninterrupted coverage of the press conference remarks by President Bush and Prime Minister Blair, following a private meeting, and it was so boring!
A private meeting centering primarily on the Iraq Study Group Report, but also on PM Blair's planned trip to Israel and Palestine, not exciting at all.
A private meeting with one reporter asking questions and framing commentary from studio-based network staff...... what a huge pile of boring!
Boooooooriiiiing! But important.
I Figured It Out.....
Lost is a TV show about a bunch of people who get sucked onto an island that is owned and guarded by a black, smoky New York City taxi cab receipt!
Think about it. Why else would it sound like that? Also they were sure were sucked onto the island, they didn't just crash onto it, because that is what the black smoky receipt monster is all about my friends, people's fates.
Then there's a nuclear bomb and they find a van and a pirate ship, and a guy named Ben who nobody kills for some reason, and then a polar bear, and there's a bunch of other stuff and everything seems really really cool right up until they start doing stupid stuff like finding a wheel and traveling across the world and then they fail to explain everything that we though was going to be cool.
