That episode is CALLED 'Heidi and Kennedy'. Chase is fucking relentless. And I must be easy too, because I respect the hell out of that.

at this point i'm becoming convinced that Tracy Jordan's lines on 30 rock are written using Mad Libs.  funny episode though.  i think 30 rock needs to be a little longer though, because the last couple of episodes have just closed on a random point.  i wish some of the action would spill over onto other episodes. 

Last night's ending was the best, though!

And maybe the greatest line of the episode came from Jenna: "I dragged myself out of bed at 4 am, went home, got dressed and came here."

ha, i didn't even catch that part.  i was trying to think of some really random line from tracy to prove my point but all i could think of was " . . . its illegal here in this country.  thanks a lot Puritans"

Time to watch the last episode of The Wire s4. I can't imagine this is going to put me in a good mood, but I'm braced for the worst by this point.

Yeah, that was grim. Since it's already been discussed thoroughly, I guess I don't have much to add. My admiration for this show knows few limits. The only thing I found a little baffling was Rawls' political naivety, which just didn't wash with me--he had to know the system better than that. Otherwise, daaaaaamn.

I always saw that as Rawls misreading/underestimating Carcetti in the same way that some of the old-guard white politicians did. Or maybe thinking that if he ever had a shot at commissioner, that was it--better a risky, potentially bad play than no chance of a play. But yeah, pretty weak.

How much should I be spoilering?

I thought Rawls' misstep was pretty much covered when Burrell told him that he's not suited to politics. And besides: he'd probably never get another opportunity like that.

Agreed with both posts, it just seemed like he would've seen this dynamic in action at least a few times before and known better, what with the politics of race hardly being a subtle matter in city politics, but I guess that just agrees with the "not suited for politics" angle.

Also, I think the image from the final episode that's going to stick in my head and keep breaking my heart is Prez sitting in his car, watching Duquan work the corner. That gets under my skin even more than Carver with Randy.

heather (since you're the only one who seems to care):  I was just talking to the gf about what the critics have been saying about the last two eps of Dexter.  Then I realized that if the critics had seen them, they'd probably been leaked and they sure sure have.  YES

No Wire leak yet, though, sadly.

Come on, you bastards, the TV threads on this board have probably converted more people to The Wire than some asshole at the Sun-Times anyhow.

little tiny spoiler:
from the new yorker article about david simon and the wire that hannah posted earlier this year, i learned that duquan will be back in season 5. so there's a possiblity that that's not the end of the story.

so um uh. There is a movie version of Dead Like Me that is in production right now going straight to DVD sometime in 2008 and Mandy Patinkin is not in it at all.

This cannot possibly be a good idea.

So wait.. how many episodes are left? The torrent for last night's is finishing up, but is there another ep? If so, I need it. I can't wait anymore. Dexter is all I have left!

Btw, did you ever watch Damages? For some reason I thought you'd either really love it or really hate it, but I dunno.

I have to say, Mandy Patinkin not being in things is often a good idea.

However, "straight to DVD" is almost never a descriptor of a quality product.

Dude we talked about that for like a page somewhere.

They also recast Daisy because she's in that awful "Women's Murder Club" show.

Also, it's "straight-to-DVD" in the same way that "Razor" was; they'll air it on Showtime.  It's supposed to be a backdoor re-pilot.

And yes! heather, there is one more episode after last night's, and it's totally on the internet already.  It's goooood.

[monkey:]I mostly agree with you, but he was one of the central characters in the show and he is Mysteriously Absent, possibly because he is on some shitty CBS crime drama or in a revival of Fiddler On The Roof in Cleveland or something, but still.

edit GOD SORRY.

Yeah, he's not doing anything now since he decided to quit Criminal Minds by just not showing up to work, which was hilarious.  I'm not all that worried about him not being in that movie, since the storyline of him getting replaced actually sounds kind of interesting, and my biggest beef with Dead Like Me was that we saw the same "learning to accept your fate" lesson over and over again with not enough time devoted to developing the overarching mythology of the show's world.

Question about FNL se. 2: Did they replace the Mark Zupan analogue with the actual Mark Zupan?

I never thought of him as a Zupan analogue! But you're right! And no, it is the same dude, as far as I can tell, and he is named Kevin Rankin.
He is or was also in The Bionic Woman, which led to a lot of confusion on my part mostly because I am not very smart.

I'd have to go back and look but I'm about 90% sure that the guy Street is talking to in se. 2 is not whats-his-face from se. 1. Unless whats-his-face aged about 8 years and got some facial scarring in the downtime. Maybe the dude he's talking to in the wheelchair in se.2.ep.2 isn't supposed to be whats-his-face.

It's not, it's a cameo by Mark Zupan.

So you were right in other words. Rankin appears in like the next episode.
