Random TV Notes... all IMHO

Last night at the end of Jericho, we were warned that there were only two episodes left... and I realized that I had no unanswered questions whatsoever. I watch the show every week, and I enjoy it... and I am absolutely certain it makes no difference to me if the show ends tonight or next week or whenever. Everyone who complains that Lost is too frustrating should be forced to watch Jericho.

The Amazing Race, the loathsome hags from Alabama claim to be very devout, but have you ever noticed they never ever do what Jesus would have done? Meanwhile, for the first time in the show's history, the Barbie team is genuinely sweet and adorable! Their relentless optimism and good cheer is infectious. For me, it's them or the Cho Brothers.

Speaking of
The Amazing Race, I have developed a new improv game based on the skin-crawling Rob and Kimberly. The audience suggests a random line of dialogue, and you have to find a way to turn it into an argument. Extra points if you can work the word "dude" into every sentence at least twice.

If you didn't find
CSI:NY heartbreaking this week you are made of stone.

Bravo to
CSI: Miami. It's long been a tradition on the show that every murder must occur at, near, or after a rave or pool party full of beautiful women. It's why I watch. You would think this week's episode, about someone murdering models, would have a high enough babe quotient... but you misunderestimate them. The show opened with three insanely hot women in Hooters-esque outfits... working in toll booths! I have got to move to Florida!

Best argument against racial quotas: the dullest
Survivor cast ever.

Criminal Minds keeps getting better.

House is an incredible show, and I am completely addicted... but the enormity of Cuddy's head scares me.

I am so glad that
Prison Break might run non-stop this season. It's gone from good show to great show.

Lost hiatus has already affected my quality of life.

People Really Should Have to Get a License Before They're Allowed to Write Poetry

If the poem doesn't scare you, the performance will. If the performance doesn't scare you, the dress will. If the dress doesn't scare you, the ring will. If the ring doesn't--

Oh, who am I kidding? The poem will scare you.

Sometimes It's Hard To Argue With Vegetarians

From's article about things available abroad but not here in the U.S... including this cute little fella, the Ortolan:

Few illicit delicacies offer such culinary sensation mixed with ethical dubiousness. That's thanks to the way Ortolan is prepared: Before they're cooked, the little birds are drowned in Armagnac—right after they've had their eyes poked out. A minor quibble to some. "They're magnificently gamy, succulent, mildly alcoholic, and even a little painful to eat—the bones and organs all burst in your mouth," says Anthony Bourdain. Or at least that's what it sounded like he said over all the crunching.

Am I the only one who feels like poking Anthony Bourdain's eyes out?
