Crop And Save
I was a little worried that this show would fail to live up to its hype. After all, no other new show will have as much to live up to this fall. The show did not fail to please and this is the beginning of a very promising run. Fans of the West Wing will rejoice at the return of Sorkin to NBC primetime and long for the days of the great West Wing seasons. The cast is talented and deep. It would seem that there are half a dozen characters that could carry an entire episode (much like West Wing). I am looking forward to more great things but I am curious how the sketch comedy show will play out in the series. Will they show a full sketch from beginning to end? Would that hurt the dramatic nature of the show? Will "special guests" be a constant on a show that would need a host for each week's variety show (Felicity Huffman was the first)? These unanswered questions might be large considering they were not addressed on the pilot but I cannot wait to see how they are resolved.
Five the Hard Way (1969)
This is a horrible movie that can only be watched with the MST3K shadows going along with it. This movie would have received a 1 out of 10 but it was actually filmed in Perris, California, where I teach high school English. To my knowledge, it is the only movie ever filmed here. With horrific acting, a stupid plot, and an unnecessary rape scene, this film absolutely reeks. If you were to play a drinking game in which you took a shot for ever strained line of dialogue you would be hammered in 5 minutes... and dead in 10. The director clearly needed to pad the film as there are several unneeded scenes and the races take far too long to move the story forward.
