GI Joe Renegades Cartoon

Early last year the cable station, the HUB, introduced a new series called GI Joe Renegades.  It is not like the GI Joe cartoon from the eighties, since this new series has a little twist.  Let me just add, this series is far better then the live action movie.  Check out the intro below.

I know what many of you are thinking.  This looks like A-Team meets GI Joe.  I have to agree.  I even found this clip on youtube of someone else who thought the same thing.

Overall, what I have seen of this series with my kids, we like it.  I like the two part episode that gave background on Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.  If you get a chance, check it out on the HUB.

Winter Olympics 2010 – Tape Delay?????

NBC Sucks!!!!!!

I noticed the Olympics were going to start at 7:30 PM PST, so I told my kids let’s watch.  I live on the West Coast and I knew we were going to get a slight delay, no big deal.  This was the first opening ceremonies we were going to watch as a family.  I thought it would be cool for the kids since they enjoy playing Mario and Sonic Winter Olympics on the Nintendo Wii. 

Well 7:30pm rolls around and as my family and I watched the coverage, we notice no opening ceremonies.   I thought, that’s alright, we are going to get some coverage on the luge racer, Nodar Kumaritashvili, who tragically died during a training run.  Thirty minutes into NBC’s coverage and there were still no opening ceremonies.  That was enough for us so we just turned off the television.

Whose stupid idea was it to tape delay the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics on the West Coast from 6pm to 9pm?  I can understand a slight delay but 3 hours you have to be kidding me.  But what should we expect from the network that ask Jay Leno to retire from Late Night then give the Tonight Show to Conan O’Brien but when Jay Leno thinks about coming to Late Night, NBC offers Jay a talk show at 10pm.  When Jay’s show fails at 10pm, NBC get the bright idea to move Jay to a 30 minute show from 11:35pm to 12:05 am and move the Tonight Show to 12:05am.  But would the Tonight Show, no longer be the Tonight Show after midnight?

NBC and their bright ideas and they wonder why their ratings are in the toilet.

The funniest show on TV……

I have to admit that there are very few good comedies on TV.  This new TV season, my wife and I enjoy  watching Worst Week on CBS at 9:30pm on Monday nights.  This show is hilarious.  The writers of this show come up with some very funny stories on the episode I have seen so far.  The basic plot is an engaged man tries desperately to impress his fiancée’s parents but his attempts inevitably end in disaster. 

I am not sure if this show will last longer than one season but it is very good for laughs.  I think the show is very original and fun to watch.    I will enjoy it as long as they keep it on.  If your are looking for a good laugh, watch Worst Week on Monday nights.

What to write?

Well we finally watched a recorded episode of My Own Worst Enemy.  To be honest, I like the concept of the show but I am not sure about Christian Slater.  I am curious how the story will play out but we will see. It could go in many different direction but I hope they come up with a good storyline.  I think I need to see a few more episodes before I say if the show is good or not.

I am kind of bummed out that Heroes is not on this week.  I like the direction they took the story this year.  Next Monday’s episode looks very good.  I am very curious why Aurthur Petrelli went bad.  I also like the fact that Sylar is Peter and Nathan’s brother.  Is Heroes a sci-fi soap opera?
