So Sad...

I've been following this story about the murder of Brian Terry and find it sickening that Holder thinks it's more important to keep his secrets, save face and cover up the facts of the case than it is to be open and transparent and release the documents requested by the Congressional investigative team...I wonder why the incredibly embarrasing "Deadheads for Oblamer" agree that Brian Terrys' parents have no right to know exactly what happened to their son...???

Trailer Park Boys

About a trailer park in Nova Scotia. Its rather campy with a story line about a couple of losers in a trailer park who just got out of jail and their adventures. They like to shoot of guns but they are just white trash hosers who don't mean to harm anyone as they drink and attempt to grow dope.

My favorite character is Bubbles who wears inch thick glasses backwards that make his eyes look huge. It's a good show to watch when you're trashed. The episode where one of them is offered $160 to buy hydroponics if he acts in a porno movie is especially hilarious.

Leahy, as the ex-cop trailer park security is especially funny.

Breaking Bad returns for 5th season

on July 15th. The show has lost some of it's better production values and nice time lapse of New Mexico's landscapes and skys but the story is still relatively fresh after five years, which is hard to do.

Starting this Sunday at midnight you can watch/tivo the entire series. Amazingly, the commercial encourages people to record! The AMC channel has consistently provided some of the best new content starting with Mad Men and Breaking Bad about 6 years ago.

Amazing. Who is reponsible for turning around this sleepy cable channel known for John Wayne and old Westerns?

Fareed Zakaria: GPS

Best of the Sunday morning talking heads. He is a liberal who gives a lot of facts to back up his views. His commentaries are sharp and to the point and all over the political spectrum. He really went after China last week for human right violations in their own country and the hypocrisy of that country accusing the US on that subject.

That there is actually a (relatively) new program in the genre that would appeal to the 45-62 demographic is unusual. Like newspapers, this genre of news/commentary is aimed at the 62 and over crowd -- a dieing breed, if you'll excuse the bad pun.

I hope that his show has a long shelf life and gets moved to the 7pm slot on a Sunday evening.
