Nothing Much


I had a few things to say yesterday about 9/11, but watching one of the programs about it on MSNBC I ended up deleting my post. Too depressing. There's nothing I could say that others hadn't said better.

I ended up staying up late watching Zodiac on DVD. Robert Downey, Jr. Wow, what an actor. He might just be, with Kevin Spacey, my favorite actor of my generation. How did I miss that one at the theaters? Just might be one of my 2007 top 5.

There's nothing much on network TV for me anymore. I was looking over a list of new shows and could only groan. The Geico caveman? Please! I miss Frasier, Seinfeld, Cheers. I miss The Rockford Files.

I did see this really cool program called Iconoclasts from 2005 on Sundance about Redford and Newman. The two starred in my number one favorite movie of all time, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. They were hanging out at the Westport Country Playhouse, taking a drive, talking about movies, racing, salad dressing and old times. A really enjoyable hour of television.
Now I think I am going to put Superman Returns in the DVD player until I doze off.

You should be watching the following TV shows:

"How I met your mother" on CBS (it's like the cast of Seinfeld, With the good looks for Friends, and the writing of Frazer. Funny Stuff.)

"Survivorman" on Discovery Channel (a cool guy filminn himself trying to survive in remote wilderness locations. Good TV.)

"Robot Chicken" on Cartoon Network (Audult Swim, late night cartoons)
