What Was On TV Last Night


Dec. 4: Best Worst person in the World EVER! "CNN's Lou Dobbs threatens illegal immigrants on his show during the week but on the weekends he pays these people to clean up after his 'show jumping' daughters' horses." Countdown With Keith Olbermann. (Sorry, I could not find a direct link, but it is Java linked on the Countdown page for now. Maybe Crooks and Liars will put it up later.)

UPDATE: Crooks and Liars now has the video!

Tinman on the Sci-Fi Channel. Any show with a creepy brain being kept artificially alive in a jar can't be all bad. Repeat from the begining Sunday at 5. Yay!

Becket (1964). I had seen it before. Just about any Peter O'toole film can be watched over and over again. Another great movie was A Man for All Seasons (1966).

Dobbs' daughters jump over horses just for show?

Why in my day we just sat around smoking pot.

Hell yeah on the movies. Plus The Lion In Winter is another amazing O'Toole flick.

What about jumping over horses while smoking pot?

I'll have to check out Becket. I share a birthday with O'Toole. I agree, A Man For All Seasons is an outstanding film.

There's a creepy brain being kept alive in a jar? This I gotta see!

The fact that Peter O'toole could pull off Becket after Lawrence of Arabia show his mettle.

Does that include Supergirl? ;)

That being said, Helen Slater was easy on the eyes!

Dammit, I forgot all about TinMan on Sunday.(I'll have to try to rememeber this weekend. I love those sci-fi series, regular and mini. Eureka, Dresden Files, The Triangle, The Secret Room. And I love the all day Saturday really bad disaster/sci-fi- myth movies they show. Well except during football season. I do the football thang on fall Saturdays.

Man For All Season's and Lion in Winter are great movies. I don't think I've seen all of Becket. But will look for it.

Oh, and thanks for the Bossy link last week, that woman is a hoot.

Oh, and if you like good sci-fi on the teebees, check out Torchwood on BBCAmerica. Robin Hood is also really good. (Both have ended this season,but at BBCA On Demand you can still view some of them, sometime. And on that channel Coupling is a riot. Season 2 #5 or6 is the funniest 40 minutes I have ever seen on tv. I've watched it like 10 times and still giggle uproariously evry damned time. It is like a lesson in building to the punch-line and comedic timing.)

Wow, maybe I should try this "television" thing.

Jess Wundrun: That's all I did in my day too. I wish that I had been jumping Lou Dobb's daughters instead.

Randal Graves: I live "The Lion in Winter." O'Toole is one of the most watchable actors ever. (BTW, as long the horses don't smoke anything, I think it's OK.)

Chris: "Becket" is a great film, but check out "was A Man for All Seasons" too. Same event, different perspectives.

Dr. Nemonok: That's what I thought too! There is nothing like a good brain in a jar to give a movie that extra oomph, in my opinion.

M.Yu: Are you saying that you didn't like "Lawrence of Arabia"? I loved that movie too. Peter O'Toole has a whole nettle of mettle.

Wondertrash: Especially Supergirl! A mini skirt, go go boots and a cape - That's what I call a movie!

Anonymous: A lot of the stuff on the Sci-Fi Channel is really dispointing. I can't believe some of the movies that they show. Giant snakes and such. Blech. But some of the stuff is really good. I ahve to remember to check their listings. I miss stuff on the Sci-Fi Channel all the time. I missed the beginning fo "Tinman", for instance.

As far as sports, the only one I watch is women's volleyball. Bossy is great! I'll have to look into "Torchwood" and "Robin Hood" on BBCAmerica!

Mark: You definately should! All of the best porn is on Fox News.
