Hot Air Buffoon

  • The Monologue:
    • What was funny today? I'm not even touching on that jackass kid.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • I guess I never really give spoiler alerts, but I figure that goes without saying. It's not like I'm watching the shows before they air.
    • The opening of tonight's Flash Forward up until the credits was absolutely fantastic. The rest of the show was pretty good, too, especially the ending with the big reveal of the villain (and it's Dominic Monaghan!).
    • You're in for a good TV night when you're watching people drinking a mixture of blended jellyfish and milk and then a mixture of sea slug guts and water. Jellyfish and milk!
    • I'll catch Community and the season premiere of 30 Rock online tomorrow. Too much on Thursday nights.
  • A Heads-Up:
    • Keep an eye on Texas and next year's Gubernatorial race. Remember the New Yorker article on the execution of Cameron Todd Willingham, who many believe to have been innocent? Governor Rick Perry received last-minute information that could have led to a stay in the execution, but he ignored it. Well, now with the review of the execution underway, Perry has replaced the fourth member of the review board, the most that he is allowed to appoint. Cries of cover-up and corruption are starting to swirl around him and they will not help with the primary coming early next year. This issue is going to explode soon.
