The only way to win is not to play.
Or to play, and to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.
That movie was the year before.
I was searching my brain for an early-80s joke to incorporate into that post, but couldn't come up with one. It would have been easier if both movies were 1982...
Here's something close to what I mean. When it's a moving picture she looks even weirder. Her head is huge and she is ridiculously thin. On the up side, in the show she can wear dresses with a neckline so plunging that the captain in 20,000 leagues under the sea mistakes the dress for a giant squid.
Every actor has a Big Head but not as big as Jay Leno's....lol
I could care less if they cancel these shows, I thought they were both bad but I watched then for something to watch. As long as they keep Grim on.
i view it as a 'sell your soul to the devil' show, with terry oquinn playing the role of the devil or the devil's advocate, and the hotel is his domain. the show delves into the history of the hotel, which somehow o'quinn is tied to...
decent show... the pilot got me hooked, and as the episodes go on, i'm less and less interested, but i keep watching it because i need to see how it ends...
and last resort.
I would have liked to watch Last Resort but it's on at an impossible time for me: I only have one TiVo with two tuners.
I have been recording Last Resort with intention of watching it on a long weekend. I guess I should have been doing the same with Revolution but I just couldn't get into it.
Good for them.
I'll miss 666 - but Last Resort simply didn't have any legs. They put themselves in a position where there are only so many possible story lines of interest.
People have said that on several occasions but I don't think it's true if the writers were creative enough (which they're not).
They could easily have added a Pegasus story arc where another vessel joins them. That would 3 or 4 episodes right there.
It's been getting boring and outright silly already (silly, even given the basic premise). I've been a fan of Andre Braugher's since Homicide and it's a shame they haven't been able to find a worthy vehicle for him - one that would resonate with a large fan base. You know what I think might have been a great idea? They brought Sherlock to CBS as a modern day character with an Asian female as Watson. If they were going that far astray from Conan Doyle anyway, wouldn't it have been interesting if they had cast Braugher as Sherlock? Think about it - he could he could have brought a whole new dimension to the role (not to say Johnny Lee Miller isn't doing a great job, but still......).
Anyway, I wanted to like Last Resort but as I said I've found the plots and writing silly and I understand why fans aren't flocking to it.
Does any show on ABC that is on Sunday 10pm even make it a full season?
Just like NBC on Mondays 10pm all the shows get cancelled. Do people stop watching TV at 10pm. Maybe they would be better off showing 20/20 at that time.
Over the last several years, the ratings for 10 pm shows on all networks have declined sharply. Most experts attribute this to tougher competition from cable at that time, as well as people using DVRs to watch stuff they recorded earlier in the evening.
Maybe that is why FOX and CW don't even bother with a 10PM time slot and just show local news.
do you want to play a game?
Networks really need to come to the realization that a lot of people now don't watch TV live anymore.
What are the "live +3 numbers" (or whatever they call it) for these late shows?
It adds the people who watch it within 3 days to the live number. While DVR viewers for the most part don't count for ratings purposes, within 3 days does get a special count. After that, you (we) are invisible to the networks.
That's also how many days the Lions fans are gonna be complaining about that call.
