"Alcatraz" (2012)

Love it, 28 January 2012
10/10

I am definitely addicted to the show. I recorded the first three and watched them back to back. I couldn't get enough. I think they'll have to change the writing up soon to keep people coming back, but so far, it's really good. I think the cast is fantastic. The chick cop is hot, Jorge Garcia is amazing, and Sam Neil is awesome, as usual.

I found it The Event-esque, so I'm hoping it doesn't plummet after 5 episodes and they keep it fresh. Because Abrams (spelling?) produced it, I have high hopes. I could see this series sticking around for 4 seasons or more. Check it out and give it a chance!

I found it easy to follow the story line...

Could have potential.., 21 January 2012
4/10

I was also bummed with this show. I was expecting Chelsea Handler to be the main character, but Laura Prepon is. I think Laura can be funny, but they need to chill out with the sexual innuendos. Sex talk ALL. THE. TIME. is not that funny. This was the second pilot I watched this week and all it was about was sex. After awhile, it becomes tasteless. Writers, can you not come up with anything original?

The character Nikki, I believe her name is Natasha Leggero, is completely annoying, not funny. She was in the short-lived Free Agents and played the same type of annoying character. I think her appearances on the show could grind it into the ground even more.

This should could have potential, but without more of Chelsea Handler acting like herself, I don't see it happening.

I laughed out loud a lot, 10 December 2011
10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I thought this episode was excellent. My favorite part was when Dwight storms into the conference room and slams down the boombox, says something like, "this is garbage," and plays a Trans Siberian Orchestra piece. AMAZING. I loved it.

Also, I loved the pranks with Jim and Dwight again. Maybe it's good that Pam's gone for awhile. Jim is back to normal! The pranks were funny.

Even Andy didn't make me as mad.

Erin is still annoying.

Kelly had some funny lines.

Give it a chance, 26 November 2011
9/10

I'm giving it a 9 to try and bring the score up because it's definitely not worth being that low.

Bad Teacher is hilarious because you would NEVER see a teacher do these things and get away with it. The movie is low on morality!? So is just about every other comedy! It's NOT for kids, so don't let them watch it, plain and simple.

Most movies do not make my mother laugh, and she was cracking up. I am studying to become a teacher and I loved this movie.

Give it a chance, don't let the reviewers get you down. They're probably just a bunch of prudes. Rent it at the Red Box for a $1. A dollar won't kill you.

I do have to say that Justin Timberlake's character was a bit stupid though....

I don't understand why people dislike his show..., 20 March 2011
9/10

I like the show. I never watched it before when he first started because I didn't have a DVR, but now I watch most of his shows. They are all recorded too.

I love his chemistry with Steve. They crack me up. I love how Jimmy laughs at himself and how he gets excited to be interviewing famous people. He was awestruck with Paul McCartney. I remember he was awestruck with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) too.

I like him better than Conan, but I never liked Conan, so that may be biased.

Give Jimmy a chance, people!

This movie was okay..., 27 February 2011
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Honestly, I don't understand why this movie got all the attention and appraisal it received. Sure, it was okay. It's a good movie to rent from the Redbox, but not worth $10 to see in a theater.

16 year old girl falls in love with an older man. She gives up her promising future to be with him. She finds out he's married. She lost her education. She goes to former teacher and gets into Oxford. End of story.

Was it okay in the 60s for a 16 year old to be dating a guy in his 30s? Ew.

Yes, I understand why it's called An Education, but it just wasn't that good.
