Spock vs Spock

Old School, baby!

Fascinating!

UPDATE Amazon has the entire original Star Trek series on Blue Ray at a 51% discount! $88.99 with free shipping ….

“Fascinating is a word I use for the unexpected, in this case I would think interesting would suffice.”

Happy Trails, J.R.

Larry Hagman, who played one of television’s most infamous villains – the amoral oil tycoon JR Ewing – in the longrunning soap Dallas, has died at the age of 81.

It was a nice gig. Thanks for the entertainment, Larry. (Article excerpted from UK Guardian)

The Dhimwit Of The Month For May Goes To “24”

Jack-Bauer-Dhimwit

The Religion Of Peace, in keeping with its tradition of selecting the most deserving recipient for this dubious honor, didn’t have as difficult a time as in previous months.

They state, in their citation:

CAIR honchos no doubt cheered the seventh season finale, as Kiefer Sutherland’s character, uber-patriot Jack Bauer, was literally on his knees before Allah. Presumably dying of poison in the plot, the agent who once defended America from Islamic terrorism literally invites a local imam into his hospital room – of whom he can beg forgiveness and pray with in his “final moments.”
————–
With Jack Bauer’s deathbed “Shahada,” the producers may have finally jumped the Muslim shark. Let’s hope so. The series can hardly get any worse. Janeane Garofalo was actually cast as an FBI intelligence agent, which is wrong on many levels. (credibility-wise, it isn’t terribly clear how she managed to beat out Barney Rubble for the role).

Well said and written!
I gave up on “24” several years ago, not because it had “jumped the shark,” but because it jumped on and off frequently, in the same episodes. Honestly, how many times can terrorist escape a completely surrounded building?

In any event, after they took last year off, and returned for the 2009 season, I thought I would at least see if the show would be an improvement of the ridiculous product they had been foisting on viewers since the first season. It started out interesting, and then it happened. It was in the last half hour of the show, when, during a commercial break, a ‘PSA’ featuring the actress playing POTUS, came on and proceeded to proselytize about global warming. I immediately switched channels, never to return for the remainder of the season, but was informed by friends some of the additional nonsense that ensued, culminating with Jack calling for an imam on his (supposed) death bed.

A friend of mine had recorded it, and I had to see it for myself.
While they panned back, and you couldn’t hear what was said, it left me wondering if Jack did mutter the “shahada.”

So, I fully extend my congratulations to the cast and writers of “24” for their well deserved honor. It isn’t every year when such a clear message of dhimmitude is expressed by a prime time drama series.

5/25/09: “This Changes Everything”

What all fits into a category named “everything?”

Well, everything, obviously.

Not something, most things, the majority of things, a lot of things, no, no, no.

Everything.

Under the banner of “This Changes Everything,” The History Channel is promoting a Global Event, complete with a countdown clock, which touts “the most important find in 44 million years!”

Oh, my!

You would think The History Channel has got to know that after headlining a program this way, it has to live up to the hype. The program simply must deliver the goods, or else the network’s credibility will be damaged, perhaps irreparably. This could turn out to the the History Channel’s very own version of Geraldo Rivera and Al Capone’s vault.

With this kind of hyperbole, anything less than the revelation of the existence of time traveling, shape shifting, crop circle designing, cattle mutilating aliens, complete with a world-wide governmental cover up, and somehow tied to the monetary crisis, 9/11, the internet bubble, the illuminati, and the free masons will be an anti-climax.

But that’s just me.

Here is the History Channel promo:
