Classic TV Quiz: Friends

Friends
1. Where were you when you saw your first episode of "Friends": September 1994, at my apartment downtown flipping channels. I loved the apartment I had and I identified with the show right away.
2. Your favorite friend: Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry)
3. Why is he your favorite: He was consistently funny and something of a cynic. I've been told I have both of these qualities, but I see them in him.
4. Favorite recurring guest star: Elliott Gould as Jack Geller. The man has such terrific timing and he made the most of each moment he was there.
5. Favorite guest in a non-recurring role: Brad Pitt as Wil Colbert. Ah, the genius of the "I Hate Rachel" club.
6. Hilarious Episode 1: The One With The Prom Video. I laughed so many times in that one episode.
7. Hilarious Episode 2: The One With The Embryos. I loved the roommate game. Every line had me in stitches.
8. Hilarious Episode 3: The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister. Chandler had me dying this whole episode
9. I knew the show jumped the shark when: Ross kissed Charlie and Joey kissed Rachel. Easily the worst storyline of the series. I was glad to see them drop it.
10. Best surprise of the series: Chandler and Monica. So many great moments between the two of them. The season following Ross's wedding was just gold to me.

Yes to #5 !! I love Brad as Will and he and Rachel were so cute in this ep. The look on her face when she hears about the I Hate Rachel Club was priceless and his "hair flip" with snotty look on his face -LMAO!!

Great list, these are fun.

We're the Millers



Were-the-millers-poster

Directed by: Rawson Thurber
Written by: Bob Fisher
Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, Emma Roberts
Studio: New Line Cinema
Genre: Comedy
Official Site: www.werethemillers.com
Plot: A drug dealer, a stripper, a runaway, and a nerdy teen join forces to smuggle a "smidge" of marijuana from Mexico to the US for big pay.

Review:

I'm not going to lie to you, I had low expectations going into this film, but I wanted to laugh, so I was game for it. I'm pleased to report that the film exceeded my expectations and much more. What begins as a contrived story about four outcasts getting together for an insane quest becomes much more...[more]...

Nice review. I went in with higher expectations and I must say it even surpassed mine as well. Just a consistently funny movie and my favorite comedy of 2013 thus far. My wife loved it too which is a telltale sign of a great comedy. Definitely going to grab it on Blu Ray.

It's Official

Katey_sagal
1. Justin Bieber is white trash. Fights everywhere he takes his entourage, pissing off other celebs, running around shirtless when he shouldn't.
2. Ric Flair is also white trash. When your fifth ex stalks you for alimony and you end up on the wanted list, you've earned the title.
3. Time Warner fucking sucks. CBS isn't much better. No Showtime in Kansas City, no CBS in a dozen other cities or better.
4. Mike Keota is this generations Earl Hebner: a complete imbecile who gets tapped to turn the screws in the worst matches in the WWE. More proof that Vince hasn't learned from his mistakes.
5. RNC, if you're pissed off at CNN and NBC because you're afraid their Hillary Clinton programs might cost you an election, then it's time to admit you're a bunch of pussies.
6. MTV is the most desperate network in cable television. A reality show about virgins, really?
7. After watching the Jackson family and his former employees in action, I have no doubt as to why Micheal was self-medicating.
8. Memo to Oprah: Asking Lindsay Lohan if she's an addict is about as subtle as asking a pedophile why he watches the Disney Channel
9. Tom Cruise needs an intervention to stop him from making bad career choices. MI5 just might be Mission: Unwatchable.
10. Let's at least end this on a high note. Katey Sagal is a timeless beauty with tremendous talent. Sons Of Anarchy will be on soon and I'm looking forward to seeing her in action again.

Why The WWE Is Failing

Wwe-tlc-tables-ladders-chairs-2011

For years, we've endured the weekly rituals of WWE Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown. Likewise, we've also witnessed monthly events on pay-per-view television, culminating in the spring ritual of WrestleMania, a marquee event. We've seen action figures, video games, Blu-Ray releases and more recently feature films, often starring members of the promotions roster. Some films have been good, some not so much. Games have ranged from average to very good.

Sadly, the rituals have become horribly stale. It pains me to say this, being a lifelong fan of wrestling shows, enjoying the work of wrestlers like Bret Hart, Randy Savage, Ric Flair, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, and others. But it's time for a change. I've been a fan of wrestling my whole life and I've met some of these extraordinary characters. I've been to house shows, TV events and pay-per-view events. I watched Owen Hart fall to his death. And in the process, I've always seen the show for what it is, theatrical, timed, and to the participants, fame and fortune earned through bodily injury and showmanship. The show went on and people came.

The problem is that show is now a monopoly and the quality has deteriorated under terrible mismanagement of talent. Worse still, controlling interests in the show have no desire to take risks or make things better. Status quo, stale booking and politics have taken over.

Blame rests squarely on Vince McMahon Jr. and his family. It has never been more apparent that in his quest to buy out and take over the wrestling world, McMahon has lost sight of history in his business. He ignores his mistakes and repeats them as if they never happened. He ignores more quality talent to push his ideas and his family and friends instead. He has no real understanding of his fans.

Take some more recent story lines and 'talent' on the show and compare to shows of the past, and the pattern becomes clear.

First, we have John Cena. Not a bad person, really. His work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation is outstanding. However, he is promoted as a sort of superhero that can't be kept down, much like predecessor Hulk Hogan, who held the WWE title for several years and never really fell to any competitor. Cena is getting the Vince McMahon treatment, which includes the creation of new feuds and story lines just to build Cena as a hero. As with Hogan, this process is backfiring. Fan loyalty is very divided, but clearly, there is a majority that despises Cena. Worse still, Cena clearly does not want to make a heel turn, which would upset his loyal fan base and upset his relationship with Make-A-Wish. Change could mean a fresh start for him and eventually, a new following of fans that would make him more popular than ever. Much like Hogan, Cena does not see the forest for the trees. And the creative team won't push such a move for upsetting the status quo.

In the 90's, the fan base was getting tired of the same old show, featuring circus acts, repo men, trash men, tax men, rich men, hillbillies, etc. The talent base was ready for a change. The mass exodus from the WWF/E to WCW included many of McMahon's marquee stars and major talents. As the roster shrunk, Vince became desperate enough to make major changes that had been long overdue. Enter the Attitude Era. It was at this time stars like Stone Cold Steve Austin, HBK, Edge, Christian, and others led the promotion to new success. The war between old school talent in WCW (including the NWO) and new talent in the Attitude roster made for a ratings boom. In spite of having an impressive array of talent, WCW was so badly mismanaged that it eventually folded and was sold to McMahon. He had the best of both worlds, including creative control, licensing, and an entire viewing audience.

It only gets worse from here, though. When Linda McMahon decided to enter politics, many of her opponents pointed out the risque behavior of the WWE shows, including sexualized storylines and ultra-violent matches. Suddenly, the WWE became "PG". And any trace of the Attitude Era that once thrived in the promotion was eliminated. There are a few lingering stars from that time, but most are gone now, retired, with health failing or simply not physically capable of competing anymore. And new talent was given a strict set of instructions about what was and was not acceptable in programs. "Family entertainment" was back and here to stay.

Older stars like Bret Hart, Rick Steamboat, Ric Flair, and many others no longer have the spotlight, in spite of paying their dues heavily in this sport for decades. Harts book, full of stories of how many other wrestlers had become shells of themselves, is a sad testimony to the work and sacrifice so many of these people make for the business. So it only makes sense that these men would be honored in the Hall Of Fame. Yet, this too has become an insult to many of the stars who deserved their time in the spotlight, but who have been ignored completely. With wrestlers who gave their all in the ring being ignored in favor of the likes of Donald Trump, Drew Carey and other celeb wannabes, the annual tradition now includes the words "Why them?" and "Why not an actual wrestler?"

The promotion does have some solid talent, in the form of CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, and a few other holdovers from the Attitude Era, such as Christian and Chris Jericho. All of these wrestlers are solid and deliver outstanding matches. However, much like the 80's and early 90's, when brawn always got a push over talent, wrestlers like Ryback, Mark Henry, and Brock Lesnar receive these massive pushes for their size and brute strength. Is there a place for this in wrestling? Yes, definitely. But not at the expense of better talent. This is a lesson the McMahon family has yet to learn.

There are other obvious problems with the WWE. The carnival atmosphere that was once fun and inviting is now stale like a cheap act at a state fair. Dwarves, giants and divas all have their place, but they get absolutely nowhere in this business. And more often than not, these people serve as filler for a show that desperately needs it. B-list wrestlers litter the backstage area, waiting to lob insults, sneak attack other performers, or just loiter for the sake of a paycheck. There are still great performers on the microphone and in the ring, like Punk, Bryan and Jericho. But they're outnumbered by far, now.

Vince is looking for the next big thing, but that doesn't mean he won't try a side project, something he has failed at over and over again. See also: Icopro, the WBF, the XFL, NXT, and coming soon: Total Divas. This division of the WWE is so bad, the crowd almost seems to sleep through the matches. There are a couple of decent wrestlers in the division, second generation stars who took after their famous relatives and know enough about the sport to be awesome. Sadly, they find themselves surrounded by the likes of the Bellas, AJ Lee, Alicia Fox, and other pointless performers. Like the rest of the program, what could be good just gets lost in the shuffle. I'm guessing the new spinoff will die in a season or less. But the division will limp along regardless.

The McMahon family has recently begun to crop up in storylines on Raw. And even though Vince has proven to be a great villain during his feud with Stone Cold Steve Austin, the current plot between himself and his son-in-law HHH and daughter Stephanie has been nothing but annoying. The family tries desperately to look like a monster with multiple heads, but instead looks like a played out soap opera. Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley has all the acting range of a would-be model reading a cue card. HHH, while somewhat talented and marginally capable in interviews, spends more time being second banana. I can't see either of these people being effective leaders. CM Punk came out during his infamous 2011 tirade and mentioned that he can't see Vince dying only to have the show taken over by his "idiot daughter and doofus son-in-law". I can see what he means. Vince has engrained many bad habits and lazy story telling into this organization and its creative team. Unless this family is willing to bring in outside creative assistance, the WWE has nowhere left to go except down.

Bale says no more Batman. Downy is up for more Avengers as Iron Man. Who do you love, MFC?
jeo4
jeo4 at 08:17 PM Jul 04

That's not the point. It's not about right and wrong. It's more about the decisions made. There are no wrong answers, here. Downey obviously sees where his character can go at this point and it makes sense for him to stick around for follow-ups to the Avengers. Bale knew that his series would wrap the way it did and saw it to its defined conclusion. I respect Bale's choice to end his run even in light of a potential Justice League project. I also believe Downey made a solid choice to move his character out of solo films and into the team projects planned. Neither decision was a bad one. Obviously, I wanted to know how other members of the community felt, and preferably not a "who cares" answer. I'm sure I could have expressed all of this myself to be more clear, but then I might as well be writing my own blog about it.
