Watchmen and other Recent Pop Culture stuff.

The GF (who now bears the name of CG, Cupcake Girl) and I went to see Watchmen on Friday.
All I can say is whoah! That is a whole lot of blue penis.... (there may have been blue balls (hehe...) but in the standard hetero manner all I saw is penis and I then had to reframe what I saw of the scene). They may as well call it the blue penis movie....

After that it was off to drill (oh yeah, I am in a good mood this week... nothing like 2 workweeks sandwiching a weekend where I am under even more stress than while at work.). I didn't even get back until around 10 PM since for some reason we decided that it was a good idea to run a land navigation course from 1300-1700 on a Sunday afternoon, so of course it ran long.

Some of the shows on my hot watch (shows that do not sit on my Tivo for any period of time)
  • 24 - The wait was long but OMG.... this season has been awesome! Is it wrong that I want to see bad things happen to the Senator (Red from That 70's Show) and Janeane Garofalo(who joined the show because she hated Jack Bauer!)? Nope, not really..
  • Lost - It really has picked up this season. I watch it every week with CG and the twists and turns are a lot of fun!
  • Life on Mars - Poor show. I liked it. At least it gets a chance for a graceful exit.
  • Chuck - Please do not cancel it. This show is great TV!
  • Gossip Girl - Another fun series. I am so not in the target demo, but it is still entertaining to watch.
  • Dollhouse - Love it! Like all Whedon shows, it takes a bit to "burn in" and establish itself.

I've heard mixed reviews of the blue penis movie. I'd like to see it - the movie more so than the penis - but I might wait. Read the graphic novel. Forget about it all together.

I saw this movie last night. It was random, meandering, and of questionable moralistic perspective. I wouldn't say it was a waste of time to watch, though I could have done without a good chunk of it.

Also, it confounded me why he would wear the man thong when he did when, at other times, he felt it wasn't important.

Chuck must be saved. As a friend of mine said, the writers must be children of the 80's and early 90's. The references are both awkward and funny at the same time.

Dollhouse, I'm starting to like more and more, but it seems somewhat repetitive. Echo goes on a mission, something goes wrong, Echo saves the day. The only thing different appears to be the mission and whether or not she gets help from her handler or the other "doll" who I can't remember her callsign.

I can't get enough of Lost either. If only I knew why there wasn't a new episode last night...
