Fans of Murder She Wrote or Matlock will love this show. You owe it to your grandparents to make sure they know about this show.
So the premise is that in 1960 Vegas, the only person capable of handling the bad guy mobsters is a simple cattle rancher played by Dennis Quaid.
Some highlights – one scene has Quaid chasing a motorcycle through the streets of Vegas on his horse, very badass. Another scene has the mobsters contemplating bad things at a restaurant stuffing their face with spaghetti. Do Itailians even like pasta?
I’m not sure I will watch another episode but if I do I hope they have a scene with Irish guys fighting or a Jewish person complaining. So many choices here those are just off the top of my head.
They may want to move the show to 3 in the afternoon so ther target market can watch before dinner.
UP ALL NIGHT, it’s missing something. It’s well acted, decent premise, but not good. It’s produced by Emily Spivey, who gave us PARKS AND RECREATION and was a writer on SNL.
Maybe it’s just that Amy Poelher is better than Maya Rudolph. Christina Applegate is just not that interesting.
Also, I know this was not on my just watching list, but I don’t have the remote.
If you watch AMERICA’S GOT TALENT, you need to stop yourself. A dog act won this year’s show. I have never thought to ask whether an animal was “American” or not. Is it possible that one of the dog winners wasn’t an American and should have been disqualified?
Are the rules even the same for people and animals? Are packs of wild dogs crossing the border to give birth to anchor puppies? If that’s the case are we waiting on Arizona to show us the way on how to deal with this? Is Lou Dobbs on the case?
I did some research and found out that while none of the dog winners had actual birth certificates, their birth announcements were in a local paper advertising them for sale.
I smell a controversy brewing over this one. Donald, any help here?

As most of the 2 of you who have checked out this website know, I have poured my heart and soul into it over the last day and a half. It has been a real journey of exploration and led to genuine personal growth.
But the fact is, I can’t stand reality TV and I realize it may or may not be the most popular thing on TV. If I ever hope to appeal to the masses and double our viewership to 4 people, I will have to discuss reality TV.
So, I have expanded my horizons and have asked my little brother to help comment on reality TV. Don’t worry, even though I was always just a little bit better at everything then him, it’s still like getting 90% of me, which is better than what you will get out there.
All that said, I haven’t decided on whether I will ever allow any discussion of BIG BROTHER. That show just makes me mad.
It’s Friday and that means a slim pickings on TV tonight. Luckily I have some catching up to do and the plan is to watch the following:
1. Bones (from Monday)
2. Last Resort – got to at least check it out even if I am skepitical and ABC is nice enough to have an encore presentation.
3. Grimm – I love this show the wife hates it
As we head to the end of the first week of the new TV season, it is inevitable that a bunch of shows are going to get cancelled. Most of them, like Partners or Elementary are bad and deserve cancellation.
However, sometimes there are good shows that for whatever reason (I blame reality TV) people don’t watch, like Arrested Development or Sports Night. It’s going to happen and life is not fair.
What makes me bring this up is the fact that a show I watched last season – Alcatraz was not renewed this year. I watched all 13 episodes and was invested into why all the prisoners disappeared in 1963 and are now reappearing. Will I ever get to find out why? It’s just not fair.
What if Lost had been cancelled after season 3? We would have never found out that the Island was really purgatory or imaginary or real. Wait, I watched all 120 episodes and I still don’t know what happened there.
Bottom line, to fans of Revolution let’s hope people keep watching. It’s the only way we’re ever going to figure out why the power went off.
