*If you get a fruitcake for Christmas, I’ll take it. I actually like them!
*If you were in trouble, would you want to see the team from Criminal Minds walking in a line across your lawn, all slow motion and serious, coming to help you? Awesome.
*I do not like to walk into an establishment and have 5 employees shouting “welcome to ________” or “good morning!”. First, they’re not even looking at you. Second, they do not expect a response. Third, what if I was trying to sneak in?
*Does it bother you, like it does me, that the Netflix popup ads evade all popup blockers? This is the ONLY pop up ad I ever see anymore. They have a special arrangement with websites … and it is an evil plot to bring back popups to the web. I will not subscribe to Netflix as long as they continue this evasive and invasive practice. Unless I want to.
*I really like the new show Men of a Certain Age … but come on… in a 40 minute show do we really need 50 anatomical refrences and 30 profanities? Are the writers struggling that much to come up with decent dialogue? Great cast, great story developing, but I’m disappointed.
*OK, Reebok, disbelieve your ad about how your new shoes can help someone have a better butt. And really, must you fill the screen with a butt to demonstrate? I mean … the person is lying down… how much good are the shoes doing anyway? I won’t be buying your butt building shoes!
*Man, Illinois must have been really bad this year to get Gitmo Detainees for Christmas.
Thanks for reading!
I am evidently part of a small minority of people who do not care for the television program 24. The Blog Prophet, Brian Nicklaus, says that “LOST is the best drama ever on TV…”, and I tend to agree. I watched 24 and quickly picked up on it’s formula. Fans will say, “so what?” … and rightfully so. AFter all, every program has it’s formula designed to tell a story, stimulate viewers, and thus create advertising opportunities.
Tonight the new season of 24 begins. I feel sure Mrs. Dobbs will be watching Jack Baur get beaten endlessly, and when all opportunity has passed and it seems too late, he will revive and get something done to save the world. yawn.
There are no polar bear bones in the sahara dessert, endless supplies of Dharma Initiative supplies, no mysterious smoke clouds that consume people and sound like dinosaurs tromping through the forest, no whispering in the woods before someone dies, no invisible Jacob who directs all things on the island, and no way to move the entire island if the plot demands it! What’s left to like?
Ah well…poll time again!
Let me know what you’re thinking!
Thanks to Dr. Clif Mims there’s a little widget there to the right telling us just how many days, hours, and minutes before we can plunge back into the adventure that is LOST. I lost my way a little last season. I was very excited about it all, but was interrupted several times as we had work going on at the house on the Coast, I had already started preaching at Forsythe and was traveling … so I’m going to have to catch up. Thankfully just before Christmas my LOST season 4 DVDs arrived. So I’m in a race to get caught up before that upcoming night when we rejoin the cast for another great season. What are you thinking about LOST? Take the poll!
If you have thoughts about LOST, I’d love to hear them in the comments!
