You thought I was not serious?
Plenty of other stuff out on the Hypnotoad. Just look-
|"Television is a vast wasteland"|
8 pm – 10 pm update.
All Prime Time update.
Midnight to 3 am update.
Why are you update.
Here’s a list of things (not comprehensive) I think more worthy of your eyeballs.
Instead of Women’s Curling on USA
|12:00||ABC||Family Full House||1:00|
|12:00||History||Lock ‘n Load||1:00|
|12:00||TV Land||Hogan’s Heros||1:00|
|12:30||TCM||Love Me Or Leave Me||2:30|
|1:00||Comedy||Daily Show, Colbert Report||2:00|
|2:00||ABC Family||Sabrina the Teenage Witch||3:00|
The longest marathon today is Discovery’s American Loggers and it actually starts off with Extreme Ice Logging at 11 am.
Sorry fans, if you want to watch Cash Cab, you’ve already missed it.
Sanctuary is Amanda Tapping’s new show and as some of my readers may know I’m a huge fan. The concept with this is she’s a part Vampire blooded mutant (one of 5) who runs a world wide network protecting and controling mutants.
It’s much better than it sounds.
Forbidden Planet is of course the classic Sci Fi adaptation of The Tempest and marks the first screen appearance of Robby the Robot.
Instead of Men’s Hockey on MSNBC or Women’s Cross Country and Figure Skating Recap on NBC
|3:00||ABC Family||Full House||4:00|
|4:00||TNT||Law & Order||7:00|
|4:00||USA||Law & Order||6:00|
|4:00||VH-1||Celebrity Fit Club Boot Camp||5:00|
|4:30||TCM||The Blackboard Jungle||6:30|
In this block you have dueling Housewives and more Law & Order than you can shake a stick at.
Though I can’t imagine why you would want to unless you are thoroughly bored by Men’s Hockey and Figure Skating which it is very easy to be.
I will be cranking together Afternoon Edition during this time, so I won’t hardly notice.
Instead of Men’s Curling on CNBC
|5:00||ABC Family||Gilmore Girls||6:00|
|5:00||History||Lock ‘n Load||7:00|
|5:00||VH-1||Celebrity Rehab w/ Dr. Drew||9:00|
|6:30||TCM||Lilies of the Field||8:00|
|7:00||Comedy||Daily Show, Colbert Report||8:00|
|7:00||FX||Are We There Yet||9:00|
|7:00||MSNBC||Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann||12:00|
|7:00||Travel||Man v. Food||9:00|
|7:30||Toon||Batman: The Brave & The Bold||8:00|
It’s important to note that this is an entirely Tweetyless day on MSNBC.
Like Armando I’m a big fan of Joss Whedon’s short lived series Firefly. Serenity is the theatrical film release of the final episode and one of the most satisfying endings I have ever seen (much better than Battlestar Galactica for instance).
I have to sing the song for you.
|Ballad of Serenity
Take my love, take my land
Take me out to the black
There’s no place I can be
TheMomCat was mentioning the other day that she was going to rent the Matrix movies. You can see the last 2 installments today for free.
What I like about Batman: The Brave & The Bold is that you get to see the B-List DC characters, that’s what was great about the comic book too.
Instead of Men’s Hockey (yawn) on CNBC and Ice Dancing (the hardest discipline in Figure Skating), Women’s Skeleton, Men’s Super G, and Ski Jumping on NBC
|8:00||ESPN||Dallas @ Orlando||10:30|
|8:00||ABC Family||America’s Funniest Home Videos||11:00|
|8:00||TCM||Breakfast at Tiffany’s||10:30|
|8:00||Food||Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives||9:00|
|8:00||TLC||What Not To Wear||10:00|
|8:00||Toon||Johnny Test, Ben 10: Alien Force||9:00|
|9:00||Oxygen||Kiss The Girls||11:30|
|9:00||TBS||Scary Movie 4||10:30|
|9:00||Food||Best Thing I Ever Ate||11:00|
|9:00||Toon||Star Wars: The Clone Wars||9:30|
|9:00||TV Land||The Brady Bunch Movie||11:00|
|9:00||USA||Good Luck Chuck||11:00|
Caprica is a new episode. As I said before, I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.
Instead of Women’s Curling on CNBC
|10:00||TLC||Say Yes to The Dress||11:00|
|10:00||Toon||King of the Hill||11:00|
|10:30||ESPN||Boston @ Portland||1:00|
|10:30||TBS||Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle||12:30|
|11:00||Toon||Baby Blues, American Dad||12:00|
|11:00||TLC||What Not To Wear||12:00|
|11:30||Oxygen||Kiss The Girls||2:00|
Agent Smith: Why, Mr. Anderson? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you’re fighting for something? For more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson. You must know it by now. You can’t win. It’s pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Anderson? Why? Why do you persist?
Neo: Because I choose to.
Instead of Men’s Hockey on MSNBC or Medal Ceremonies and Recap on NBC
|12:00||Food||The Best Thing I ever Ate||2:00|
|12:00||TLC||Say Yes To The Dress||1:00|
|12:00||Toon||The Office, Look Around You||1:00|
|12:30||TBS||Scary Movie 4||2:30|
|1:00||TLC||What Not to Wear||3:00|
|1:00||Bravo||The Matrix Reloaded||4:00|
|1:00||Toon||The Mighty Boosh, Darth Marenghi’s Dark Place||2:00|
|2:00||Toon||King of the Hill||3:00|
|2:30||TBS||Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle||4:00|
|2:30||AMC||Return to House on Haunted Hill||4:30|
|2:30||TMC||The Blue Dahlia||4:00|
I’ll probably be watching Warehouse 13 and Stargate, but “The Brit Block” of The Office, Look Around You, The Mighty Boosh, and Darth Marenghi’s Dark Place will appeal to those who like British humor. I especially recommend Look Around You, The Office is kind of sad actually.

Broderick Crawford, Lon Chaney Jr.
This part still under construction, expect updates.
All of them far more worth your eyeballs than NBC and it’s horrible coverage.
This isn’t even political, except for the lesson in activism.
Am I serious?
Oh Rose, have something to eat.
Two hundred thousand years in the future he’s dying, and there’s nothing I can do.
Well, like you said, two hundred thousand years, it’s way off!
But it’s not! It’s now. That fight is happening right now! And he’s fighting for us, for the whole planet, and I’m just sitting here eating chips!
Listen to me! God knows I have hated that man, but right now I love him, and do you know why? Cause he did the right thing, he sent you back to me!
But what do I do every day, Mum? What do I do? Get up, catch the bus, go to work, come back home, eat chips and go to bed, is that it?!
It’s what the rest of us do.
But I can’t!
Why, cause you’re better than us??
NO, I didn’t mean that! I just… But it was. It was a better life!
And I don’t mean all the travelling, and seeing aliens and spaceships and things, that don’t matter.
The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know, he showed you too!
That you don’t just give up! You don’t just let things happen!
You make a stand, you say no, you have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away.
I want to make it very clear that you can use this thread to talk about the Olympics all you like.
I will be watching something else.
And you’re perfectly free to post your own essay, I might even promote it.
But to those who say that it doesn’t matter, that now that NBC has its advertisers ratings mean nothing, you couldn’t be more wrong. They have guaranteed those advertisers a certain number of eyeballs and if NBC doesn’t make their numbers they have to give their sponsors free advertising until they do.
You have power. You just have to have the willpower to use it.
