Review and a half

Eric Clapton – I Can’t Stand It

Today’s Quote: “If at first you don’t succeed, try taking a nap.” — Linus Van Pelt

I see that Reno 911: Miami will be coming to a theater near all of us soon. They must be getting desperate out there in Hollyweird. Reno 911 never should have been a television show, much less a movie. I think I’ll save eight bucks and stay home.

Last review of The Sarah Silverman Program
I tried to watch The Sarah Silverman Program last night. I really did. But after about five minutes, I just couldn’t take any more of it and switched over to The History Channel or something.

I really didn’t think it would have been possible for the show to be less funny than the premier episode but apparently she doesn’t know her limitations. I believe she has the talent and potential to be a fine comedian. Maybe she’s better suited for stand-up comedy and a sitcom just isn’t the right fit but Comedy Central made her an offer she couldn’t resist. If she can wean herself from the Comedy Central teat, she can go far. As for the Sarah Silverman Program, it sucks.

The Naked Trucker and T-Bones Show
I still haven’t seen it. All the trailers I’ve seen fail to bring me any expectation of being anything more than a Comedy Central hack comedy along the lines of Stella, Reno 911, and a host of others that failed to leave an indelible impression on me.

A few days ago I read an interview with Dave Allen and David Koechner (The Naked Trucker and T-Bones) that lead me to believe that it might actually be “intelligent” comedy or as close to it as Comedy Central gets. I had planned to watch it this last Wednesday evening I got distracted by something else (probably on the InterWeb). Maybe next week. I really want to see the show so I can make an honest appraisal and pass unbiased comedic judgment on it. But, as you all know, television has a rather low priority in my life, somewhere behind Internet porn.
