lettermanOn October 1, 2009, The Late Show with David Letterman opened up with Letterman’s monologue explaining a scandal that was breaking about his life. Allegedly, Robert J. “Joe” Halderman, an Emmy Award nominated writer, director, and producer, had attempted to extort Mr. Letterman for $2 million with the threat that Mr. Halderman would write a screenplay and a book regarding affairs that Letterman had had over the course of his life.



NCIS: LA and the Stereotyping of Latinos

Sep 29th, 2009 | By | Category: revewz, snewz

No, not that kind of stereotypical Mexican.
Perhaps I’m being unfair. Maybe it’s a little early in the show. I might even be acting a little over-sensitive to the subject. That’s what I thought last week when watching NCIS: Los Angeles for the first time.

After watching the second episode, I realize that I’m probably right, though.

Right about what? The fact that apparently the writers of NCIS: Los Angeles consider the ‘bad guys’ to be the Latinos.



Grey’s Anatomy Season 6 Pilot Has Most Retarded Running Joke Ever

Sep 24th, 2009 | By | Category: revewz, snewz

No, dummy. I'm talking about Grey's Anatomy, the show, not Gray's Anatomy, the book. That's not even from Gray's Anatomy. That's DaVinci's Vitruvian Man.

Okay, so George is dead, Izzie’s alive, drama, drama, drama, etc. Welcome to another ‘very special episode’ of Grey’s Anatomy. I’m not going to write a review about the episode. If you watch the show, you saw it, so you don’t need me to pussyfoot my way through recapping it or any of that crap. I just have one thing to say about it:

Ceviche isn’t “a chopped up fish dish.”



8 Things I Learned About Mental Hospitals by Watching House (and why they’re bullshit)

Sep 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: revewz, snewz

No, silly dog. Not that house.
My father called me last week because he had heard about the season premier of House that came out last night. He was pretty excited about it, because it takes place in a mental hospital. My parents met at a mental hospital back in the early 70’s, which is why this theme is exciting for my family.

Sadly, my parents aren’t some super cool deranged lunatics (I suppose there is a redundancy there), but instead my mother was a psych nurse for about 30 years and my father… well, he had a long career in the field. He started working in a kitchen and got his Master’s in psychology in the early 80’s. The work just sort of fit his personality, part prison guard, part self-righteous prick with a false sense of superiority. No, I’m just kidding, my dad is pretty awesome.
