t-dot kim said...

What? You're not excited to see the Wolverine movie?

Herlihy said...

i assume that that's the guy playing Gambit?

Also, the scene from the LOST S5 premiere totally got my juices flowing.

memphish said...

I'm avoiding the S5 scenes, so please discuss on the Splog not here. Thanks.

Herlihy said...

I wasn't going to discuss them. I was just mentioning how excited they made me for season 5...

Anonymous said...

tisk tisk.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Holli, regarding your post from the last thread. Not to kill your buzz. But I recently read this regarding both those shows. I don't see that as much of a show of faith from ABC.

memphish said...

Yeah, I'd seen that before Jordan. That's why it surprised me to see Castle get what I consider a pretty good time slot. If Nathan Fillion can't keep all those women who watch dancing tuned in he really isn't earning his keep anyway.

Holli

Alirio said...

I would also like to say how awesome the season 5 clip was...

I will not spoil people

I stayed spoiler-free last season and hated the inadvertent spoilings....

memphish said...

I've got news for JJ Abrams. If you fail to create characters I like or can relate to then your show will fail even with a dead simple premise. This summarizes why Fringe is failing for me.

Holli

Mr. Bill said...

For me Fringe is my X-Files style fix. I wasn't completly invested in Mulder or Skully in the first season but grew more and more curious as the show progressed.

Since Heroes let me down and True Blood is over and Lost isn't back yet this is all the good T.V. I can look foreward to.

Oops. I forgot I'm watching Supernatural season 1 so that also helps. Thanks Steph.

PalmerEldritch said...

he's a horror novelist who fights crime! but he's not stephen king. no, it's somebody CASTLE. which has nothing to do with a king. at all.

fringe doesn't have likable characters? you dont like Walter? have you no heart? ;)



hey, we're getting freakishly close to new LOST. right? only a few months left?

blargh.

watching some LOST on monday nights on SciFi. i remember thinking that i had been disappointed in season two but i really like the bits and pieces that i see that dont have Ana Lucia.

good grief. she was an annoying character. what a sour puss.

"hey, ana lucia."
"hi, mom."
"you killed a guy."
"am i gunna need a lawyer?"
"yes. because i want to help you and am amazingly unaffected by the fact that you JUST KILLED SOMEONE."
"you're being nice to me even though i JUST KILLED SOMEONE? fine, mom-boss, i quit! i'm working in an airport until some weird old guy gets drunk enough to pick me up in a bar!"
"ok. i wont bother ever following up on the fact that you JUST KILLED SOMEONE. bye."

Jon from NKY said...

I may be the only Lost fan in the world that really liked season 2. To me it opened up the whole mythology and got the show going in the direction that has kept it interesting for me. Not to mention some of my favorite podcasts started in season 2.

As for spoilers; I try to avoid spoiler sites and things like that, but personally don't consider the official ABC previews spoilers, but that's just me. I can understand why you may want to avoid them.

memphish said...

It's not Mr. Bill who doesn't like Walter; it's me. And it's not that I dislike him, it's just that I don't care about him or Peter or Broyles or Massive Dynamic lady. There's only 1 person I have a strong opinion on and that's Olivia -- I dislike her intensely. And not in an I love to hate her way, but in a way that I just don't care if she lives or dies or solves the mystery or finds love, but if you wanted to hurt her along the way to try to straighten out her accent, I wouldn't object.

Holli

Herlihy said...

Is it just me or does Greg Grunberg do nothing else but piss about on Twitter?

Herlihy said...

oops

kablamo!

PalmerEldritch said...

so, i should probably check out this preview thing. right?

or would i lose my spoiler-free street cred?

Herlihy said...

you'd totally lose spoiler free cred.

and also man points.

PalmerEldritch said...

hmmm...

well, i have plenty of Man Cred to spare ever since i ate a Sloppy Joe and Bacon sandwich...

memphish said...

That LOST footage is everywhere. I still haven't watched, but I have seen this image, not spoilery and want to ask -- Who TF did Kate's hair? She looks like she should be wearing love beads and be on her way to sell flowers in Haight Asbury.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

kate needs a makeover.

actually, she looked nice with straightened hair and angela from the office outfits at her trial last season. so, maybe she should get back to that look?

oh. and at least its not a wig.

andrew. said...

- I'm with you Jon. I'm a big supporter of Season 2 of LOST. I've said it many times on here before but the finale of Season 1 was a huge let down and the introduction of D.H.A.R.M.A. was the saving throw.

- i like a good hippie chick but that actually looks like Kate's water got turned off mid shower.

- I don't understand why Fringe thinks I care at all about Massive Dynamics or Olivia's ex.

memphish said...

You've nailed it on the head Andrew. Kate looks like she's suffering just like these guys.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

the Eko stuff in season two was pretty great. new hatches, triple A, etc.

its just the AnaLucia stuff that was awful.

also, season two gave us Bernard!

PalmerEldritch said...

which is a good thing cuz Bernard is the man.

Stephanie said...

I thought season two was pretty awesome. Lockdown, anyone? Hatches, Triple A, Bernard and Henry Gale.

I get Darkufo's spoilers in my inbox every morning. Since I'm not excited for season 5 right now, it's easy to delete without even reading them. Who knows? Tomorrow I might start reading them.

Mr Bill, Morgan and I have started at the beginning again with Supernatural. Skin has to be my favorite of season one. I could watch that one over and over.
It's funny. I'm watching the entire series over as a Sammy Fan Girl this time.

Stephanie said...

That is one beautiful boy.

Stephanie said...

Hello?

hello!

Bonjour!

Namaste Bitches!

New PauseCast up ...

[ally] said...

I'm hanging out at Sonic for dinner before going to class. Nothing like a cheeseburger before working out.

Palmer, did you say a few months before new Lost? Isn't like a month and a halfish? I'm so ready for whenever they decide to show it.

Herlihy said...

1151 hours : 31 minutes : 16 seconds till LOST. ish.

Lostalavista said...

hello. recently discovered your podcast. love the dharmalars very much. listen to all podcasts in a week! hope to see new ones soon. ps, the main page for your blog is sort of confusing with no dharmalars logos on the title. love the new lost promo. cant wait!

Lostalavista said...

by the way. my name is aiden. im a big time lost fan. duh. and i am also a big fan of jay and jack. and now the dharmalars. im a huge jater. so please be kind skaters. hehe.

Lostalavista said...

sorry for too many postings. also, i am from dayton, ohio. i am a student. i am intersted to learn about people here. yay for lost!

PalmerEldritch said...

welcome, aiden.

there is also the Scott and Steve BBS to register at and check out.

ally, i think you're right. month and a half or so left. looking forward to it (obviously). will hopefully be posting about Prison Break on the BBS soon. watching monday's episode right now.

oh! aiden, did you check out The Lost Initiative with Kim and Aimee?

memphish said...

49 Days and 1 hour until new LOST!

Welcome Aiden!

Mr. Bill said...

Kablamo!!!

Stephanie said...

Welcome Aiden.
I'm starting to get a little excited now for Lost.

[ally] said...

I'm at the studio now. I feel like taking a nap instead of working out. Talking to some girls about tricks. Sheesh!

Stephanie said...

Aren't tricks what whores do for money?

Jordan from the 206 said...

...or cocaine.

PalmerEldritch said...

Michael Bluth: So this is the magic trick, huh?
George Oscar 'Gob' Bluth: Illusion, Michael. A trick is something a whore does for money...
[sees children watching his magic]
George Oscar 'Gob' Bluth: ...or candy!


- www.imdb.com


sorry, jordan.

Jordan from the 206 said...

That's the tv version Palmer. If you watched the uncut extended pilot on the dvd, he says cocaine. Ah-ha!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Which is kinda lame when you think about it. The whole point was Gob was trying to cover up his comment after realizing the kids heard him. But he actually made it worse. In the tv version, him saying candy negates the joke of Gob being so oblivious.

Mr. Bill said...

Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids.

Wait, that didn't sound right...

LOL

PalmerEldritch said...

touche!!!



but i like candy better cuz he thinks its just the drugs thing that would be inappropriate for kids not the whole whoring thing.

but either works.

Jordan from the 206 said...

You are totally right. They both work.

PalmerEldritch said...

HOLY FUCKATRON!!!

Ghostbusters: The Video Game trailer is fantastic.

Mr. Bill said...

I wonder if Rick Moranis will show up? What is he doing now? Why am I asking questions I can easily google?

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

I'm on board.

Mr. Bill said...

On June 24, 2008, Moranis declined to come out of retirement to join the other cast members of Ghostbusters in the production of a new video game based on the films.

Aww Ratz.

Alirio said...

Fucking Canadians!!!

;-)

andrew. said...

- cool to see that video game is still in production. It seems like just a month ago that it had been dead in the water despite orginally having a Sept 08 release date.

- Pushing Daisies was good tonight. The mystery was sort of tacked on, but the show itself unveiled a bunch of intriguing plot threads just in time to leave them dangling.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I heard on a podcast that Rick Moranis has retired from acting. And that he did so a couple years ago, shortly after his wife died.

Stephanie said...

I started not to even waste my time watching PD because I'm so upset over it being canceled but nothing else was on. Highlights: Olive's boobs in the camera the entire episode, the "I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion" lady who looks like a witch to me, the plastic bed device w/ arm sleeve, Olive running, Olive singing. The time felt right for a song. That show makes me so happy.
Another show that makes me happy is FNL. Those fans without Direct TV will be completely satisfied in the new year when the show comes back to NBC.

Chris JC said...

Hi guys! I hadn't spotted this was here.

Nice to see a couple of new faces - please note than in the off season it slows down a lot and there are only a few hardcore hangers on talking about whatever crosses their mind. Once the season starts and the podcasts crank up proper again, this place will go mental.

More of you guys should have Amazon Wish Lists - I only found one so far.

Speaking of Wish Lists - purely on Steph's continued insistence about the series, I've put Supernatural seasons 1-3 in mine. Nobody will buy it, but I use Wish Lists as a reminder rather than a request.

PalmerEldritch said...

awesome.

took my daytime cold medicine (i think i'm coming down with a cold) and then noticed that it was night time cold medicine. went back to the medicine cabinet and confirmed that i'd grabbed the pills from the correct box but that someone had filled the day time cold medicine box with night time cold medicine.

time for coffee.

memphish said...

OMG Palmer! That nighttime stuff leaves me messed up all day when I take it properly. You may need a coffee IV. Kiddo's had a cold since Saturday, and I'm afraid I'm getting it now too. Post-nasal drip, you suck!

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, gotta keep moving lest i fall asleep.

anyone started planning their "Welcome Back, LOST" parties yet?

memphish said...

You can start those Welcome Back LOST parties a week early with the 3 hour S4 finale airing on Jan 14th per Dark UFO.

I prefer watching LOST alone though. Alone with my little note pad. Boy is that pathetic.

Stephanie said...

You're assignment for today: Show the blogpost your amazon wish list.

Chris JC said...

Here's mine!

Kindly note:

Loads of Doctor Who stuff
The occasional Region 1 DVD
Stuff that I've put in for a laugh.

Chris JC said...

I'm not being stalkery in looking for Amazon lists, but generous. The person whose list I found will work out who they are in just a few days.

Stephanie said...

My wish list. Feel free to get me anything except for the iPod Touch. Mom's already got that taken care of.

Chris JC said...

Probably best to take it off again, then. You know hoe rich and generous all us Blogspot types are!

Chris JC said...

Also - that's the link to "Your Own" wishlist (ie, when I put it in, it takes me to my one, not yours.

Trying to find yours now for the proper link.

Voila!

Chris JC said...

After launching a low yield attemtp to find decent pictures of my old secondary school, I have instead found this lovely story, written in a very confusing style:

"Girl, 15, torched by love rival"

Pah, we don't need guns when we have premeditation on this scale.

Chris JC said...

In fact - one look at The Sun's home page today and you can see why we'd rather perpetuate this idea that we're quaint and aloof. Check it out:

Rememberence service for toddler who died after suffering over 50 injuries

Eighth anniversary of ten year old boy stabbed to death in my old home town

Teen rapper jailed for killing someone who insulted him

Idiot from Manchester put video of him loading guns onto YouTube - now doing five years

Parents of murder victims say "killers should die in prison"

Speeding coach driver crashes, killing three while making a safety announcement

18 year old girl stabbed in street

Actress whose brother was stabbed to death praises boyfriend's new film about stabbings

Main jailed for knowingly infecting a woman with hepatitis B

Jail for teenagers who put a concrete block on a railway line

Three stabbed at music awards

Teenage thugs jailed for beating up a man until he was unrecognisable

etc etc

Did I mention The Sun's a bit right wing and preoccupied with a certain kind of lurid news story?

Even so though: bloody hell!

mb said...

Hey peeps.


just checked and to my suprise I DO have an Amazon Giftlist. how about that :)

mostly Doctor Who DVDs - surprise surprise. I'd better make this list common knowledge amongst the family :)

Chris JC said...

MB, you fool - you did the same thing Steph did! Clicking that opened MY Wish List. This is yours:

Features... REAL NAME!

memphish said...

Adorable animal video of the day.

You awake Palmer?

Holli

andrew. said...

- Palmer is starring in Crank 2. Chev Chelios mixes up his meds on the very morning that every mobbed up lunatic in town is trying to kill him. He's got to do whatever it takes to stay awake and avoid getting knocked off, but it's not going to be easy. This film features new villains Tryptophanna the comfort food dominatrix, and Nick Drake's ghost.

- my wish list. I just realized that i probably suck to shop for.

- The Sun probably had a field day with the Plaxico Burress story.

- I checked out the first 2 episodes of The IT Crowd last night. I couldn't get beyond it being such a traditional sitcom, with a laugh track even.

- I added Ultraviolet (the series. I love you Mila but you owe me for watching part of that movie) to my Netflix queue after listening to the sucky Confessions Of An Internet podcast. Thanks for the recommendation.

Stephanie said...

Something about Lost!

BSG prequel spin off Caprica trailer

35 seconds of Terminator: Salvation

mb said...

ACK! My bad on that link - thanks Chris! :)

meant to say earlier - re: the Jon Favreau series 'Dinner For 5' that you and Steph discussed - if you haven't already found out, it was indeed cancelled from IFC (Independent Film Channel) here in the US. Why, I don't know, as it seemed to be the channel's highest rated show at the time. The few episodes I caught, I liked.

HOWEVER - it apparently (according to that Wikipedia page) is still on ITV4 in the UK, so perhaps you can still enjoy it Chris?

Chris JC said...

It's on ITV4? Excellent!

I don't read The Sun, obviously, but I happened to catch the website today. I reckon they probably didn't care about Plaxico Burres as it wasn't about illegal immigrants, teenagers with knives, "gypies" or semi nude ladies.

Wow - my recommendations have been taken up on? Erk. Hope you like it, Andrew!

IT Crowd - not a laugh track, but an actual audience, like used to be done. Although obviously location stuff is played in to the audience.

mb said...

Just discovered that Netflix "presented" a new episode of Dinner for 5 in February with Peter 'A Christmas Story' Billingsly, Justin Long, Keir O'Donnel, and Vince Vaughn (possibly to promote Vince Vaughn's "Wild West Comedy Show"). Looks like in was a one-off.

Stephanie said...

Terminator Salvation looks an aweful lot like Transformers. Christian Bale is much better looking than Shia though.

Mr. Bill said...

Hey Steph and Chris,
Very good podcast. and I'm curious about the show Skins and Ultraviolet. I watched Torchwood and it was ok just not what I thought it would be, being a Dr. Who fan.

I have the complete series of Dinner for Five and I love it and I'll send it to anyone who asks if you like, just let me know via email with appropriate info.

The episode that mb spoke of came out after the "complete" edition dvd release...Ratz.

mb said...

Let me second Mr. Bill's praise of the most recent CIA podcast (since I rudely neglected to say it in my last post) :)

Actually just listened to the last two CIA's - both excellent. I must subscribe to Der Geek.

Also, Chris - finally listened to the CTF 'Documentaries' episode of CTF. Right on for the shout out re: our thus-far-ill-fated-but-destined-to-succeed -thru-the-force-of-our-will Doctor Who episode. getting it done in time for the xmas special sounds fantastic - lets begin the scheduling negotiations (me being the difficult one as b4) :)

mb said...

and I have not forgotten about your invitation for CIA Steph (if it still stands)...

Stephanie said...

mb, I was just wondering who I could beg next. When are you available? What do you want to talk about? I don't really have anything in mind at the moment.

If I have the blogspot's approval, I'm satisfied.

Mr. Bill said...

I also want to tell Alirio, good job.

At least you have the ketchup flavored chips in Canada.

I'm looking for them here in the states.

Alirio said...

Thanks Mr. Bill!

I do what I can... I must say I loved Ketchup chips when I was younger and we had an abundance of Maple Leaf brand Ketchup chips around.

Now all we have are Humpty-Dumpty and Lays brand Ketchup chips... not as tangy :-(

Trevor McFur said...

Hey blogspot, what's happening?

Chris, thanks again (I think) for the GNR disc ... I don't hate it nearly as much as you do. I think that I just find it to be entirely ... mediocre, I guess. And instantly forgettable. As an aside, Axl's voice, which was always kind of unusual, hasn't really aged all that well.

Going to see the Blue Man Group in January. Not in Philly, but in Reading, PA, a small town about 45 minutes to the west (and about 5 minutes from where we actually live. But I can't help but wonder if the Blue Men that come to Reading are the 'real' Blue Men, or just some understudies. Hmmmm....

Here's my Amazon wishlist. Which I use more as a queue for books that I'm going to get out from the library, since the local library's website doesn't save books that you want to get out.

Trevor McFur said...

Hmm, let's try that again:

Wish List.

Mr. Bill said...

I forgot my Wishlist it is lame.

Trevor McFur said...

No list the contains the Six-Million Dollar Man could ever be lame.

Mr. Bill said...

LOL

I'm dying to watch the "meets bigfoot" episodes I can't find them anywhere and the last time I saw them I must have been 9 or 10 years old. I remember being sooo scared and facinated at the same time.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Bryan Fuller might be returning to Heroes.

I read it was a done deal with Bryan Fuller, that he is writing the final three episodes of the season.

Stephanie said...

Chris, what did John Barrowman do?

Stephanie said...

Chris, is that Marsha?

Stephanie said...

Nevermind. He exposed himself. And people compained?

Chris JC said...

Ever since the Ross and Brand incident, where people complained after hearing that something had happened, rather than having heard the offending item, we've been drowning in a tide of overblown moral outrage.

John Barrowman, somewhat egged on by people interviewing him, took out his penis ON THE RADIO. No pictures were taken, there was no webcam. All that was broadcast was the sound of a man apparently taking his penis out. So of course there were complaints, and APOLOGIES from the broadcaster. Sigh.

As for Marsha/Julia Deakin - if you mean the woman at the far right, I rather suspect that it's actually Jane McDonald, a star created by reality TV in 1998 who is still a household name.

Chris JC said...

"Fruit and Nuts"

One complaint. ONE complaint and a grovelling apology from Barrowman AND the BBC. I'm completely appalled by this. How pathetic have we become?

PalmerEldritch said...

umm... the dude didnt get fired or anything. one person complained so he apologized.

sounds like the situation is over. right?

Chris JC said...

In theory, yes, but Barrowman is being dragged out onto talk shows to explain himself and the number of people who complained during the show is never enough these days as very dull people with nothing else to do tend to complain when they hear ABOUT it, and will probably go on about how the presenters and the producer who allowed it to happen should all lose their jobs, etc. Oh - and most of them think it happened on television.

It's the knee jerk reaction idiots that annoy me, not what actually happened.

Chris JC said...

I've looked into it further and will now present evidence to support my theory. One complaint during the show, but the number of complaints is now at least 95. Here is the story from the Daily Mail's website, and the readers of said paper:

Outrage! (with a side order of reasonable)

There are, at time of writing, 382 comments to that. The Mail also have a page dedicated to Barrowman's TWO public apologies on the subject. Number of comments: 0

Stephanie said...

How much of a difference would it make if you didn't have the media fanning the flames? I say you but it's just the same here.

Chris JC said...

Oliver Stone called our press "the worst in the world" after the outrage about Natural Born Killers - but we have far fewer equivalent television news shows, where opinion is often given precedence over fact. Although I think our tabloid press may indeed even be worse than that.

The Sun (and The News of the World - basically The Sun on a Sunday) were particularly notable in the paedophile witchhunt that saw suspects having their contact details published in the paper, bringing about the tide of public feeling, and misinformed paranoia that caused a crowd to harrass...

UK guys know where I'm going here...

A paediatrician.

Of course, truth being what it is, the events of this case have also been misreported and inflated (including right now, by me - probably).

But still, it warranted comment in Herlihy's favourite Monkey Dust sketch, The Paedofinder General.

Do you have questions about "Lost"?

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by all that has happened on and off the island?

Have you ever peed yourself, trying to hard to figure it all out?

I watched the original The Day The Earth Stood Still this weekend. It's special effects are, in a word, awful and the moral of the story overt and overbearing. Anyone know how much the remake resembles the original? I can't decide if it's even worth sticking in my queue much less going to the theater for.

Stephanie said...

I will see the new TDTESS for Jon Hamm only. And maybe a little bit for Keanu. Eventually. I'm not rushing out to see it.

Chris JC said...

I'm back, chaps.

Herlihy - I went as it was my mother in law's 70th birthday and that's where she lives. Like much of the area it used to be a mining toen, but now it's shut down it seems to be an in-town shopping precinct connected by a fairly busy road to an out of town shopping complex around a man-made lake. Weird place. And in the small villages, 14 year old on bicycles rule the night.

I've seen little talk (if any) of Zack & Miri on here. Did anyone like it, or did they find it mildly amusing but no great shakes (like me).

Stephanie said...

I've sampled Zack and Miri. I didn't get to the actual porno making but Brandon Routh and Justin Long were impressive. I'll finish it eventually.

Question for the podcast:
Who are the most underappreciated actors?

Justin Long was probably the best thing in that film.

I think the thing that sets it apart from other Smith fare is the sheer number of times that the word (with apologies to sensitive Blogspotters) "cunt" shows up in the dialogue.

Oh, and Jason Mewes' penis.

All in all, it's amusing and cute, but I actually preferred Jersey Girl.

i'm pretty sure that The Day The Earth Stood Still will be good only for special effects and for hoping that Jennifer Connelly gets rescued by Jareth the Goblin King.

In more LOST news -- today is Boone and Charlie's birthdays. Well the actors.

I thought about Sawyer this afternoon as I watched a movie that would probably have been more enjoyable had I not seen The Long Con several times.

What was the movie, Holli? Cool Hand Luke?

House of Games. Its 80s feathered hair and giant shoulder-padded suits for the female lead were also very distracting.

I hear it's good. I started watching once online but couldn't get past the 80's hair.

Baby News From the Island.

Should she leave the Island, or can you give birth safely on Oahu?

Oh, I thought they were from San Deigo.

Still hope no one got hurt.

Stephanie said...

Twitter just informed me that 3 people have died as a result of the crash in San Diego.

PalmerEldritch said...

that's awful.



everybody checked out the new Dharma Special Access thing? and the tease at the end? very teeny, tiny spoilers.

also, the free Namaste ring tone is wholly unimpressive.

Stephanie said...

whaaa?

dharma special access.

the substitute for the uber-lame ARG.

'Butt Bandit' gets 13 months in jail

VALENTINE, Neb. (AP) — A man dubbed the "Butt Bandit" for making greasy imprints of his nether parts on windows in the north-central Nebraska city of Valentine has been sentenced to more than a year in jail. Cherry County Attorney Eric Scott says police caught 35-year-old Thomas Larvie in the act on Nov. 19.

Scott says Larvie was sentenced Thursday to 13 1/2 months in jail after being convicted of eight misdemeanor counts of public indecency and one of disturbing the peace.

Authorities said Larvie used lotion or petroleum jelly to make imprints of his naked behind — and sometimes his groin — on the windows of stores, churches and schools in Valentine beginning in the spring of 2007.

Townspeople dubbed the vandal the "Butt Bandit" even though no theft was involved.

Over here, or course, that would be a "bum bandit". But then, that's something else entirely.

I want another big cooked breakfast, but I can't really justify it now that I'm back home.
