Why I Can’t Join Fantasy Football Leagues (and other thoughts)

I just don’t understand why my team can’t have Batman and Mecha-Godzilla.

That doesn’t seem fair at all. 

(OK, maybe it is a bit TOO dominant of a team, but if I had to choose, I guess…Batman. I know, you’d think Mecha-Godzilla would pretty much dominate, but remember: Batman can probably find a way to depower Mecha-Godzilla.)

The Wrong Reasons to Watch a TV Show

I am going to watch a few episodes of “Hawaii 5-0” just to support the Hawaii television crews that worked so hard on “Lost” to bring more shows out there. Also I don’t want Daniel Dae Kim to go jobless.

And if nothing else, it’ll mean a few more months of Matt Fraction making #AquaCop jokes on Twitter (“Dust for prints? Real funny. #itshardbeingaquacop”).

So, if Josh Holloway does a “Rockford Files” remake, does that mean every “Lost” alum is going to show up on a cop-show remake? #MATTHEWFOXFORMAGNUMPI!

On Missing the Point

I finally watched Let The Right One In, and it really is a beautiful, haunting film, but somehow, at NO POINT IN THE MOVIE, did I realize it was set during the 80’s. I guess I just thought Sweden was really, really behind the times, fashion-wise (it’s cold there – why WOULDN’T they tuck their sweaters into their jeans?). And their fascination with the Rubik’s Cube never ended, I guess?

Look, I am dumb.

(Also: Yeah, I think I might get to the theater for Let Me In.)

The Reason I Am Looking Forward to the “Fringe: Season 2” DVD

You can totally skip over the shitty procedural episodes and turn a pretty good 22-episode season into a damn near great 13 episode season.

  1. Moff says:

    Oh, my God. I don’t know if anyone can replace Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, but Matthew Fox is most definitely not it.

  2. braak says:

    Yeah, come on, Holland.

    Don’t even joke about that.

  3. Moff says:


    But seriously: That show was sacrosanct in my house growing up.

  4. Jeff Holland says:

    Heh heh heh. Sweaty, bug-eyed, heavy-breathing MAGNUM. It’s going to happen, people! (Look, I think I just want to see if Matthew Fox could grow a decent mustache. I think he might be able to.)

    But we all know the proper Magnum PI remake would be Terry O’Quinn as Magnum and Michael Emerson as Higgins.

  5. Carl says:

    So, following this logic to its natural conclusion, I can expect Jeff Fahey to star in a AIRWOLF reboot sometime in 2012. Good to know these things in advance.

  6. Yes, you can ignore 10 episodes and make a 22 episode season into an actually watchable 13 episode season, but that’s annoying. They should just make more shows with shorter seasons. But no, people want mindless TV the masses adore so they can sell advertising space. Stupid capitalism.
