Check out the complete list of winners from the Emmys last night on NBC here.  The opening sequence for the Emmys featured Conan O’Brien in a plane crash scenario similar to that of Lost.  This would have been funny had the timing been a little better.  The whole opening segment is getting some rather negative reaction in light of the plane crash in Kentucky which killed 49 people yesterday.

Check out the photos of some of the Transformers that will be in the movie, scheduled to be released next summer.  Megatron as an alien ship instead of a gun?  I guess it never made sense to me why he was able to shrink down to a tiny pistol in the cartoons.  The same goes with Soundwave, that menacing little tape player.

No Lost Repeats! May 17, 2006

This is not a bad idea.  Although you have to wait a couple of months for the new episodes.

It's a plight that Lost fans know all too well — you tune in on a Wednesday night praying for a new episode only to find a random repeat from nearly a season earlier, or else a lengthy and unexpected clip show. ABC is hoping to eliminate that experience.

Following a format somewhat resembling Fox's successful treatment of 24, ABC revealed its new fall schedule on Tuesday, vowing to dramatically reduce Lost repeats. The plan calls for Lost to begin the season in its standard Wednesday 8 p.m.CT time slot, but just when the show would typically move into a rerun cycle in the winter, ABC has an alternative up its sleeve.

"We really wanted to just say to the audience, 'Listen, it's going to be on for this block here and then we'll bring it back and it will run straight through,'" explains ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson. "So yes, the plan is that Lost will come on in the fall in the first or second week of the season, run for seven episodes and then Day Break will launch into that period and Lost will come back in January or early February and run straight through for the remainder for the season."

Anyone else think this dude is too old to be an American Idol?

Because they are too cheap to pay for anything:

Mega-diva Barbra Streisand and television actor James Brolin might be millionaires many times over, but don't expect them to pay $20 for a pair of movie tickets.

Arriving at the Mann Agoura Hills 8 near their Malibu estate on Friday night — apparently to see "Mission: Impossible III" — the 64-year-old singer-actress and her 65-year-old hubby wheedled their way into free seats by schmoozing the teenager in charge.

Maybe they were saving their money for the over-priced popcorn.

The 20 Scariest Movies of All Time May 10, 2006

Check out this list of the 20 scariest movies of all time.  It's not surprising that most on the list are older movies as I have not seen a decent scary flick in a long time.  I've seen some gory and disturbing ones but not the type that would scare the begeezus out of you.  My favourite on this list is Seven.

For anyone wanting to know if Lost is a repeat tonight, check out this very informative website for the scoop.  You'll never have to guess again.  Oh and sorry Reagan, I don't know if Nanny 911 is a repeat this week.

Summer Fired! March 1, 2006

If there’s one thing you can expect from every new season of the Apprentice, other than Trump’s immoveable hair, is that nobody ever learns from the previous season’s gaffes.  Take for instance Summer, the restaurant owner who got fired last night for interrupting Trump just when he was about to fire Tarek, the supposed genius who led his team to a loss.  She also didn’t help her cause by refusing to answer Carolyn’s questions on what she actually contributed to the task three times.  I guess mentioning the lone phone call she made would have made things a lot worse for her.  Anyone know what the purpose of the phone call was?
 

Tarek proved two things last night:
1.  Being smarter than everyone else (except Trump of course) doesn’t necessarily make you a good leader.
2.  Stupid team names are not exclusive to people with low IQ scores.  Come on Tarek!  You can do better than Gold Rush Corporation.
 

Trump Zinger of the night:  “Tarek is totally overrated.”
 

Good to see a Canadian on the Apprentice.  Too bad it had to be Brent.  I’d give him another week or two.
 

It seems the one advantage Sean has over the rest of the candidates is his English accent.  I guess you can make anything sound appealing with that accent because it apparently worked on the female membership holders.
 

Lenny the Russian.  It seems to me he’s probably the only one who learned anything from previous Apprentice seasons by telling Summer to keep a lid on it in the boardroom.
