The Lucifer Effect

The Pinchbeck interview was good. GRTUD probably liked the special effects Steven used prior to him introducing his guest (Steven really introduces his self in a faux stab at the prime time pundits, if you haven't seen the show - actually funny) that reminded him of his good times before becoming "a family man".
If you really want to see a great interview, casting a net across the dark waters of our times, check out Jon Stewart's interview with Philip Zimbardo, author of "The Lucifer Effect" and conductor of the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment in 1971. My only complaint of the show, in these situatinns, with these type guests, is they should shelve all the stupid kid stuff (phoney interviews and commentary) and make the interview longer than 6 - 8 mins. I understand that they can attract political heavyweights by sticking to this format but someone like Zimbardo deserved the entire half hour because he knows what causes situations like many of the political fiascos in progress now. That said, I did some follow up and have found his web site to be very informative. http://www.lucifereffect.com

Oh yeah, we did "Dream of Jeanie", sometimes several times a day (before sindication, seedless pot and Viagra, too - wink ;)

I like The Daily Show as well (learn how to spell Golden Road you hack) but the writing has gone a bit down hill after Steven left and started his own (and better) show. No slouch as far as guests on that show either. My recent favorite was author Daniel Pinchbeck. And those bears, we have to get them under control. Where's Homeland Security when you need them?

yer welcome!

and I like the Daily Show too. I guess if I'm going to watch TV at all, I should add that to the list. I haven't seen Daily Show alot, but what I've seen has been incredibly good.

The Daley Show!!!

Still my favorite faux news program. Did anyone see the guy who pushed (through the Freedom of Information Act) to get the CIA "Family Jewles" released. How many main stream news shows even gave the story more than a moment air time? I don't care what coolwhipdude said, it's a BETTER news show than most.

TV Forum Topic

Here we go, boys and girls. Not sure how this is going to work, but it ain't going to work by me creating topics for everyone's favorite show. (Just thought I should say that up front!)

I'm currently getting hooked by John from Cincinnati. I actually bought HBO last night in time to watch the re-run of Ep3, so now that I'm paying for it,dammit, I'm going to watch it. That's the only time my TV is on, though. Just can't bring myself to sit in front of the box and be 'entertained'.
