Amusing enough for me to go through the effort of posting the link:
I don't know how most of you out there feel about Chuck Palahniuk. I rather enjoy him. His twisted. his style is often frantic, but fun. And yet, 3 of his last 4 books have stunk. Fortunately, his new one, Rant, doesn't stink nearly as much as Haunted, the steaming pile of shit bound up and sold as a collection of short stories from a couple years ago. But neither did my last bowel movement. Haunted was just that bad.
Some spoilers lie ahead....
So, NBC's fall lineup looks smelly. How can something LOOK smelly? Well, only the jerks at NBC can pull that off.
Granted, I only watch 3 shows at this point in my life: 30 Rock, The Office, and My Name is Earl. (I should also point out that South Park and The Venture Brothers are shows that I watch, but only when they are on DVD.) But still, look at some of these exciting "new" programs they've got:
To stretch the normal 22-episode season of "Heroes," which faltered after its long hiatus this year, NBC will add "Heroes: Origins." The spinoff will introduce a new character each week, and viewers will select which one stays for the following season. The two series will have 30 new episodes combined.
nothing says "good idea" like letting your viewers decide what to do with your show. $50 says Sanjay is the next Hero.
Since it found an audience this season with superpowered stars, NBC will remake "Bionic Woman" with Michelle Ryan in the title role.
New series "Journeyman" is about a San Francisco newspaper reporter who travels through time to alter people's lives, and "Chuck" is a thriller about a computer geek who becomes a government agent after spy secrets are embedded in his brain.
So, Quantum Leap and a TV version of that Tony Scott movie that Will Smith was in.
Brooke Shields headlines an hour-long series about three high-powered women friends, a script from "Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell.
A rip off of Sex and the City from the author of Sex and the City starring a woman who is not sexy, even if she does hate Tom Cruise.
NBC's other new series, "Life," is a drama about a detective given a second chance after spending years in prison for a crime he didn't commit.
I give this show one month before getting canceled.
So I've finally finished school, and vacation is a week away. Do I celebrate by sitting down and writing a nice long post? No, but I will offer this YouTube piece for the comic book geeks among us. And that would be...everyone.
