Ummm. We have nothing to add to this.
CMI on TV
"I am an openly, proud gay man."
And with those words, Michael Sam became... well... nothing at the moment. He can't rightly be called the first openly gay football player at an FBS school, because he has left college. Nor can he properly be called the first openly gay NFLer, because he has yet to be drafted.
Baring something truly shocking, however, Sam will become the first openly gay NFLer when he is drafted this May. Sure, some anonymous team officials and a vocal minority of Twits (the...
- So why on earth didn’t Michonne wait for the Governor to change and make him one of her dogs?
- Wouldn’t the polite thing be to give Hershel’s head back to his body?
- Will we see more flash backs to “Samurai Charcuterie?”
- I see from the teaser that the two little girls who shot the lesbian (between the frickin’ eyes!) at the end of the tank battle will be in the next one. But must they always stand together like that? All I can think of is “The Shining.” “Would you like to play with us, Daneeeeee?”
- What must that much chocolate pudding do to your digestive tract?
- Show of hands: who thinks Carol will show up again before the season is out?
- Should Rick one day turn on Karl and...
Secrets. We've all got 'em. I've got 'em. You've got 'em. Heck! Even Victoria's got 'em.
Modern Family's got secrets too. Alex wants to surprise her mom for her birthday. Jay had a dream about his dog. Manny and Luke are filming a zombie parkour movie. Haley wants to keep her photo exhibit a secret.
These aren't malicious secrets. No one is wrong to want their privacy respected. Claire and Phil's spying on Luke and Manny with a drone got me thinking (a dangerous pastime, I know).
I don't think it's a coincidence that Modern Family included a spying scene with a drone. Clearly, they want us to think about Amazon's proposal to deliver packages to your house with a drone. Or the government spying on us. I'm not sure. You be the judge...
The theme of this episode is all about sex — whether Jess denies her ex is still in love with her or the boys trying to “score” while giving each other personal space.
After saying their first “I love you” at a party with Prince (yes, there was a Prince cameo in the last episode), this week Nick and Jess settle an argument over the classic question of whether men and women can be “just friends.” Unsurprisingly Nick wins after Jess realizes her ex-boyfriend was just pretending to be a reliable, attentive friend — because he wanted to leave his wife for Jess.
The other three boys spend the episode trying to use Schmidt’s new solo loft as a hook-up space—all at the same time. As you would guess, the plan backfires and two of the women storm out. But not before Schmidt explains how each piece of furniture in his new place has a sexual purpose.
While it was sweet how the episode forced Nick to tell Jess he fell in love with her the...
James Earl Jones graced the set of the Big Bang Theory this week, playing himself, or at least a kind of crazy, bad ass version of himself. I don't know him personally, so perhaps he actually is that much of a bad ass, but all I saw throughout the whole episode was this:
Totes magotes. Over and over and over again. Totes magotes. On repeat. Every single word he said. Totes magotes. Clearly, I should see a therapist.
But my need for therapy aside, James Earl Jones was a delight. Lion King karaoke, ferris wheel ride, ding-dong ditch, and a sauna with Sheldon provided a nice change of pace from the typical teasing of Sheldon.
And in a show that relies heavily on witty one liners, James Earl Jones provided a galaxy full of them. Here are a few of my favorites:
*My wife's in New York, and I got a Lion King residual check burning a hole in my...
The toughest part of comedy on television is the dichotomy between making the audience laugh while simultaneously developing character in each of the various roles. A comedian on stage just has to make you laugh for one night. You aren’t going to watch him every week. (If you do, you might need to see someone about that.) However, to keep a TV audience returning week after week, the audience not only has to be amused, but also needs to identify with and come to care to some degree for the personalities in the show.
(If you are huge fan of Anchorman 2 and find the above paragraph absolute rubbish, let me know in the comments. Be forewarned; I may still ignore you.)
I thought that this third episode of “Enlisted,” Pete’s Airstream, weaved both tasks well. We learn something new about every single role in this episode that makes each more unique, if not enduring. It elicits chuckles and the occasional guffaw, while elegantly introducing the complex,...
There’s a new “New Normal” racing towards primetime on NBC.
Entertainment Weekly recently reported that NBC requested the pilot for “One Big Happy,” a comedy produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Bros. TV. The official logline is as follows: “When gay and straight best friends decide to have a baby together, things get complicated when one of them finds the love of their life.” And who says Hollywood is out of ideas?
Liz Feldman, writer and producer of CBS’ of the sleazy “Two Broke Girls,” will pen the script.
NBC’s Christian bashing “The New Normal,” which followed the story of a surrogate mother for a gay couple,...
"Honey, you can't tell me that there's not one shred of doubt, one shred that wonders..."
And with that, Elizabeth Keane scuttles the potential adoption of a baby with her husband.
Far be it from me to claim expertise on the female psyche, but the logic of this baffles me. If I operated with the mindset that a shred of doubt should decide big decisions, I'd be curled up in the fetal position on my bed. I can't remember the last decision that I made that didn’t have at least some doubt.
Doubt arises from uncertainty, from an inability to know. Whether it is a failure to know all the facts before a decision needs to be made or questions about the ramifications of a decision, doubt constantly plagues the human condition. If you deny...
Not to be outdone by other awards shows, the 56th Grammy Awards decided to put on a wedding ceremony for 33 "Same Love" couples. Performers Madonna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Queen Latifah banded together to produce a wedding ceremony for the mixture of gay and straight couples, which included Ryan Lewis' sister and her fiancé. Madonna hinted at this on the E! pre-show when she told Ryan Seacrest, "History is going to be made tonight... I want to be a part of that." Known for her bizarre stunts (the 2003 VMAs kiss with Brittney Spears, for example), it is not a surprise that she would be involved. Neither is it a surprise that Queen Latifah, who is rumored to be a lesbian, would be officiating. Of course, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis...
