Ok, I just watched the first episode, and so far, it looks like it’s going to be a great show. I think the handyman dude lost his cool a little bit too much for it only being the first couple of days of the experiment, but he later explained he is having to give up cigarettes, coffee and booze, so I guess it’s somewhat understandable that he seemed to get pissed off easily.
Anyway, it looks like I’m going to like this show, and I can’t wait to see the next episode.
Yeah, I was worried my MySQL Database was filling up, but I found the problem and corrected it, so all is well, and maybe I will post more frequently now. I’m currently packaging some stuff to mail, while I watch a recorded episode of The Deadliest Catch from last night.
Man, Werner Herzog is so awesome. I’ve said it before, but the guy is a film genius. Whether he is doing feature films or documentaries, pretty much everything I’ve seen of his has been brilliant. I admit, I only learned of Herzog a few years ago, and still have some catching up to do on his films, but I went through and added everything I haven’t seen to my Netflix queue.
In this documentary, Encounters At The End Of The World, he travels to the South Pole and does a film not about penguins (as he tells you at the beginning) but about the people who live and work at the South Pole, and the land itself. He asks oddball questions and makes the mundane seem interesting. The guy just has a way of talking and using words that make you want to keep watching. The cinematography is amazing also (done mostly by Peter Zeitlinger), taking you to places most of us will never get to see, under the ice and above the ice.

I purposely didn’t put a “?” question mark on the title. I don’t know why.
There’s several good shows coming on TV tonight. I won’t be home until near 10pm, so I will have to record a few to watch later.
The season finale of America’s Got Talent comes on at 9pm…I haven’t really been watching this show very much, but will probably tune in to see who wins anyway. The Tapout show comes on at 9 & 10pm, and as a fan of mixed martial arts, I usually watch it.
However, it appears there is a 2-hour block of ALF coming on WGN, starting at 8pm Eastern Time. I might have to record these, Alf always was awesome.
The Discovery Channel has some show called The Ten Commandments Of The Mafia. I will see that.
I’ll watch Ghost Hunters, because my TV guide says they will be in Florida. I’ll probably end up watching Destination Truth again as well, but maybe not.
I just looked at MTV’s schedule for 10pm, they have some show called Man and Wife. The description says “members of the hip-hop community discuss marriage.” ROFL. I love how MTV always goes to members of the “hip-hop community” for advice and discussion. America’s kids are getting great advice.
How stupid can people be? or better yet, how stupid do they think their viewing audience is?
This idiot named “Alastair Fothergill” is the narrator of last nights show, which was a “behind the scenes” special about filming the show. During a segment about filming sharks, this idiot Alastair Fothergill says “People always ask us if sharks are dangerous, and to be honest they are no more dangerous than any other animal.” he then goes on to say some crap about it just depends on making sure you know the right time to be in the water with the sharks..
Well… Mr. Fothergill, i’m sure youre probably an educated man, and you probably spent a lot of money to get that education.. However, you are still an idiot.
Sharks are no more dangerous than penguins, right?
Sharks are no more dangerous than my chihuahua dog, right?
Sharks are no more dangerous than my nephews hamster, right?
let me say it one more time in case anyone misunderstands me.. ALASTAIR FOTHERGILL IS AN IDIOT, A LIAR, AND A BOOB.
Dear Alastair Fothergill, you could spend your entire life in a room with penguins, chihuahuas or hamsters and not die.
Dear Alastair Fothergill, please spend the rest of your life in a shark tank and see how that works out for you.
