PBS Breaking Barriers

PBS’ Pioneers of Television traces the story of people of color on American television in “Breaking Barriers” — including the mid-1960s breakthroughs of African Americans Diahann Carroll and Bill Cosby. Latino landmarks range from “I Love Lucy” with Desi Arnaz to “Miami Vice” with Edward James Olmos. Also featured are Asian-Americans like George Takei, who details his youth spent in a Japanese internment camp. Watch this video for...

from WebUser Magazine To get an idea of what a cross between Doctor Who and Sherlock would look like, watch the ingenious Wholock video on YouTube. Created by a fan called John Smith, it uses visual trickery to place the fictional detective (Benedict Cumberbatch) inside the TARDIS, where he...

I don’t listen to the radio, not for music anyway. So the time that radio stations get to brainwash me into buying air for me from their latest product artist is limiting. That said, the only time I get to hear new music is during TV shows, movies or commercials. I am happy to find that...

I just wanted to chime in on this whole talkshow host crap. Who cares? I’m not sure I do but… Remember Johnny Carson? I do. I remember when I was old enough to be able to stay up and watch him. I remember that, despite how unfunny Johnny Carson was sometimes, he was Johnny Carson...

I just finished watching the DVD Torchwood: Children of Earth and I saw how the world will end. Children of Earth is latest installment (Season Three) of the Torchwood series. It’s only five episodes, but they are some of the most powerful episodes ever written for television. This...

The Truth

It’s the anniversary of Woodstock, the same week the world loses Les Paul. Channel Thirteen is playing Jimi Hendrix Experience: American Landing. I was lucky enough to turn to it ad Jimi started to play those very familiar cords to Hey Joe. As I watch him play his guitar effortlessly,...

OK. So I’m watching Lie to Me the other day. I didn’t think I’d like the show at first because I was worried that Tim Roth was too good for television but it took me about 15 minutes to realize that he’s what televisions needs, an actor. I liked Kelli Williams from...

Ron Silver Died

Ron Silver died. That sucks. I was always a fan. I just saw him on TV a couple of weeks ago in that Spike Lee movie, “Girl 6” playing the sleezy casting agent. You didn’t have to be watching to know it was him because he had that beautiful accent that just smelled New...

Letterhead

Last night Ashford & Simpson the Jonas Brothers were on David Letterman. During the first break Paul and the band are singing an Ashford & Simpson song. It sounds really good and I’m thinking, man, wouldn’t it be great if they had Ashford & Simpson on the show? When...

Man, did anyone else see xGRod on Letterman. You just gotta love this guy. Usually I have the biggest dick in the room but I got nothing compared to Rod Blagojevich. This guy is either innocent or has the biggest pair of balls EVER. Either way, you go Rod. The interview was pretty impressive...

I’m assuming every has heard about the road sign in Austin, Texas that got hacked because it was on AOL.com ALL DAY Friday! Everytime I saw the picture I laughed, not because of what the hackers had done, but because my dumb ass has watched one too many zombie movies and I...
