The Dark Forest / Anti-virus/spyware software of choice

I'm a Kaspersky man. Best Buy put it on our computer after removing rogue anti-spyware, and it works GREAT.

Soundstage 18 / The Return of Guts
« on: September 24, 2008, 09:42:56 PM »
I have come to the conclusion that Ben is a tool who is only hosting this show for a paycheck. He made at least three references to Australia last night. OK, man, we get it. Asha is Australian. You don't have to tell us more than once. Saying so when introducing her is fine, but you don't have to hark about the Land Down Under every chance you get. Mike hardly ever mentioned England, from what I recall.

And did anyone notice that during both Formula GUTS runs (BTW, that accident was pretty scary upon further review; they don't strap them down in that thing?), Ben asked Asha what the keys to the event were? Well, let's see, Ben, pedal as fast as you can, stay on the course, and don't crash the pod car. And get in and out of the pits as fast as you can. Just stick to calling the race, dude. You can ask Asha for her thoughts during the pit stop. The event lasts, at most, in-between 50 and 90 seconds. Focus on that.

From what I have read, they have taped a second tournament to air in January. I hope Ben's improved by that time. 8 episodes in, and he's annoyed me to no end. He's better-looking than Mike, and has better hair, but he's no Mike, in the end. It's too bad they didn't ask Mike to come back. I think he'd work just as well with Asha as he did with Mo.

I like the show, and Asha, but that's because I'm very partial to Australian women, I just cannot stand Ben. Of course, he probably needs the paycheck; I don't think At the Movies will last much longer with him and that other Ben guy who took over from Ebert and Roeper (and Phillips).

The Dark Forest / When did Nickelodeon Jump the shark?
« on: July 26, 2008, 12:31:30 PM »
Nick, has for me, sunk greatly the past few years. Too many shows rely on toilet humor for the purpose of being funny. It's just lazy, and it's counterproductive. I do agree that SpongeBob has tumbled downhill since the movie. Patrick has gotten stupider, Mr. Krabs is an even cheaper tightwad, and Squidward's an even bigger asshole. FOP fell apart, IMO, when they started overdoing the potty humor around season three. IMO, the appearance of Baby Poof was another reason for it. I don't even bother watching anymore.

The Naked Brothers Band? Please! Alex is a way better singer than Nat, but even he isn't that much of a vocal jewel. And the songs suck.

Drake and Josh went downhill because they made Megan out to be a total bitch. They ruined that character, made her absolutely unsympathetic.

There are some bright spots, though. Back at the Barnyard is pretty funny sometimes. No potty humor, either. I hope that continues. Yes, it has been renewed for a second season. I saw the movie version the show was spun off from the other day, and even though I think the talking animals genre has been bloodied from all the times Hollywood execs have beaten it, the movie was pretty good.

iCarly can be downright hilarious sometimes. I think Carly's probably the worst of the four main characters, but she has her moments. Spencer is without question the best character, great wit when he doesn't think about it. Sam is funny, too. A sharp tongue to torture Freddie.

I'll probably get laughed at for this, but I've also grown to like H2O, that series imported from Australia about those three teenage girls who turn into mermaids within ten seconds of touching water. The girls are actually good actresses, rare in a teen drama. And it can be funny, too. If the girls end up seeing a full moon, weird things happen to them. Once, one of them got a beautiful singing voice for twelve hours, and turned into a siren. Soon, every teenage boy on the Gold Coast was on her front lawn. It was hilarious watching her dad trying to make them leave.

I think Nick at Nite's finished with, too. I don't think George Lopez is a classic show in terms of how Nick at Nite used to be, but hey, I guess when they added TV Land in 1996, they figured they'd dump all the really old shows (the real classics) off on it.

Oh, I miss Ned's, too. And Legends, of course.

Soundstage 18 / GUTS

Quote from: ""Purple Parrots rock!""
I wonder what Mike and Mo would look like now.  I wonder if they would be really old.


Mo pretty much looks the same, at least from what I've seen. Mike's lost all his hair though; heck, he was going bald before Global GUTS started.

As per this "new edition" of the show, I don't think I like it being a family members format. That worked for Double Dare, but I don't think GUTS is a show the whole family could take part in. For me, it was always three kids and the Crag. This could potentially be disastrous. I hear they're looking for a host. TV is my career path, but I'd stay away from this show, just in case it were to tank. No matter, if they do revive GUTS, they need to use one of these:



Presumably, they'll use one bigger than that. And in HD.

The Jesters' Court / The Legends TV network

Legends TV News with Olmec has very credible journalism while This Temple Run Has 22 Guards (a play on the name of Canada's This Hour Has 22 Minutes) is a great spoof on current events. I also quite enjoy Kirk's Declassified Temple Survival Guide. I do wish that the producers of The Production Office would just let the romance between Cam and Tim develop, but their writers are on strike, so they're airing the British version.

I've fallen in love with Temple Gas, and I can't wait for the midseason show, Temple Guard Who, and its spin-off, Kirkwood.

Dedicate a song to anyone or anything involved with the show.

This is one for the teams who never made it across the moat or to the final Step of Knowledge: "Thnks fr th mmrs" by Fall Out Boy.

Soundstage 18 / Down with GUTS!
« on: October 08, 2006, 09:41:17 AM »
Looking back on GUTS' points system, I think they should've done this:

Whenever players tied for position in a game, they should've added up the points from all positions they would've finished without a tie. For example, if two players ended up tied for first in "Slam Dunk," the points would be split up like this:
-1st was 300 points, 2nd 200
-300 + 200 = 500/2 players tied = 250 points for each player

Oh, man, there are so many. Sonic, racing games, EA Sports NHL series.

I've found out so many shocking details about different pairings on Behind the Temple Run. The John and Missy episode had many juicy details.

Lost...in The Temple is a great drama, and so is Kirk's Anatomy.

Their sports coverage, however, leaves something to be desired. Oh, and avoid their reality programming at all costs.

I just preordered a PS3 from The Gamers' Crypt.

And I have no idea how The Tomb of Crappy Movies on DVD stays open.

There's great eating inside at The Jester's Food Court, but while shopping, I got some great bargains on Titans jerseys at The Shrine of the Sports Fan. I even got a new Kerry Collins jersey...just so I could burn it.

Still can't believe they signed that...
