Article The Answer to American Idol's Problems Is...

All over the new Internet these past few weeks, there have been many articles analyzing "what is wrong with American Idol?" Although still profitable, the show has lost its cachet and impact, along with it status as ratings juggernaut. One might have thought a few years ago that it didn't matter who the judges were or what kind of contestants populated the staged, but the last several painful years has shown this to be far from true. There have been possible solutions batted about but I have not seen the one answer that I believe to be the one.

DVD Review CONCRETE BLONDES

CONCRETE BLONDE

Amusing enough crime comedy with earnest performances and a competent production, Concrete Blondes is diverting enough for a look-see.

DVD Review CREAM FAREWELL CONCERT REMASTERED EDITION

CREAM FAREWELL

Thumping and pulsating, Cream rode blues-rock to the top in the 1960's and their sound represents a time when supergroups became the norm in pop music. This document is a mixed bag of quality and interest that doesn't quite stand the test of time. Still the show is watchable on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

DVD Review JACK REACHER (BLU-RAY/DVD COMBO)

JACK REACHER

Suffers from a multitude of problems including lack of charisma and drama. Tom Cruise is not a good fit in the Salvation Army clothes of military cop turned heroic drifter, Jack Reacher. Rental only and you really might as well wait for it be on TBS.

DVD Review MANBORG

MANBORG

Half-man, half machine and all cheese. If you like your science fiction with a big slice of tongue-in-cheek on occasion, then fire up for Manborg. Go back to those days when you were young and would believe just about anything. Not a bad place to be.

DVD Review LIZ & DICK

LIZ & DICK

Exploitive much? Lindsey Lohan brings her tabloid gravitas to a movie picking over the bones of the woman, whose life was the material of tabloid legend. Not very good as a biography, not very good as a movie, this film careens from cringeworthy to boring. For Lohan completists only (or maybe Grant Bowler fans).

DVD Review CHINA BEACH: THE COMPLETE SERIES

CHINA BEACH: TH

China Beach is an outstanding television show with great production, writing and acting. It is dramas like this that make the DVD format worthwhile. There is a delicious opportunity for those who didn't see it, hardly remember it or loved it to experience the show all over again. Highly recommended.

Article The Problem with the #Olympics: It's Us.

The Problem wit

One of the biggest stories in America from the early days of the Olympics was the criticism of NBC and its coverage of the games. A hashtag for Twitter posts of #NBCFail captured the frustration of the audience. Quickly the story began to splinter and their emerged accusers and defenders along with a multiplicity of issues.

Article The Newsroom: Cable News Media Played for Laughs and Cries

The Newsroom: C

If everybody hates it, that usually means I like it. The Newsroom on HBO is one of the best things to come along in a while. Not just because it is Aaron Sorkin, not just because Jeff Daniels is not Tom Hanks and certainly not just because I hate the Tea Party too. All over the place and almost like the real thing, it is television worth watching.

DVD Review WORKAHOLICS SEASONS 1 & 2 (BLU-RAY) COMBO DOGGY

WORKAHOLICS SEA

It's an outrageous stoner-slacker-office comedy from Comedy Central that explodes in outrageous situations and bits that are as off-the-wall as could ever be hoped for or expected. It's good just to laugh. It doesn't have to mean anything. There is explicit content and it is recommended for mature audiences... yeah right.

Article Addicted to Bristol's Show: Can Sarah Save Us?

Addicted to Bri

The extreme voyeurism of reality television reaches out and tweaks the worst part of our natures. If Bristol Palin left her diary on the table in your kitchen, would you read it? If a Palin reality show was filmed in Alaska and nobody watched would it really be real? These questions and more bedevil me as we journey to the land of the midnight sun where the men are men and apparently the women are too in Bristol Palin: Life's A Tripp.

DVD Review DESIGNING WOMEN: THE FINAL SEASON

DESIGNING WOMEN

Designing Women, created by Linda-Bloodworth Thomason, was a very successful and unique situation comedy for its era with an almost completely female cast and a unique tone and perspective. Unfortunately most of the accolades pertained to the first five seasons of the show. Cast changes mixed up the chemistry of the show over its final two seasons and typically obtuse network decision making finalized its demise.

Article Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp - It Sure Is.

Bristol Palin:

There was a simpler time. There was a time gone by. Somewhere before the summer of 2008, most of us had blissfully only heard the name of Palin in the context of Michael of Monty Python fame. Now you can try as you might and you cannot avoid the juggernaut media domination that is Palin-nation. Her, him, them - all on TV. Help.

Article Jimmy Fallon: King of All Media

Jimmy Fallon: K

In another step toward obtaining the crown of King of All Media, Jimmy Fallon collects some his best musical comedy bits into an album called Blow Your Pants Off. The album features superstar guest stars like Taylor Hicks, spot on impressions of superstars and hilarious parodies of superstar songs. It would be a party in your pants if they were blown off.

Article Obsessed with Girls on HBO much?

It's good to have a few shows littered around the week to look forward to for their reasonably compelling entertainment value. HBO is serving up two on Sunday night with old pro Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Veep and those madcap Girls who are taking the Internet by storm. How did this jaded writer who hates everything, get obsessed with
Girls. It might just be their charm.

DVD Review TITANIC: THE COMPLETE STORY

TITANIC: THE CO

In this anniversary year, there has been more than the normal amount of material about Titanic in popular culture including a new mini-series and a re-release of James Cameron's popular Titanic film remastered in 3D. Titanic: The Complete Story is a fine dvd set and for those who have dreamt of and wondered about this ship. They will enjoy learning just a little bit more of this doomed journey and the people who you never get to hear about that died that fated night on April 15th one hundred years ago.

Article HBO's Game Change Comes Up a Bit Short

HBO's Game Chan

Highly anticipated, Game Change ultimately falls flat, but not because it is not entertaining enough in a superficial way. The story of Sarah from Alaska and her ascension to the national stage is an unpleasant story of unpleasant people trying to do very unpleasant things. Maybe playing it for real laughs would have redeemed it.
