Heroes is good.

Really good.

Best 10 episodes on TV since Lost's first season.

Right now I've got the following must watch shows:
  • Lost (Redeeming itself, but fall finale was weak).
  • Prison Break (Predicatable ending, but always fun...and fun is important these days)
  • House (Best comedy on TV bar none)
  • Scrubs (Best comedy that admits its a comedy)
  • Heroes (Episode 10 - the Sylar origin story is easily the best episode on TV this year...it is what Walkabout was to Lost).
  • Nip/Tuck (Still good, but getting old)
The following are if I catch it
  • Jericho (Jury is still out...too slow in many cases for me)
  • Fox Sunday Cartoons (Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad)
And that's it. Right now....Heroes might be the best out of that top list...the writing has been spectatular, the only question is: Can they keep it up?

MSU Shocks Wisconsin

ESPN.com - NCB - Ahearn's 25 help Missouri St. shock No. 7 Wisconsin

So, my non-RPI mind says...this is huge for not only Missouri State, but the MVC. Some people think that Wisconsin is the team to challenge Ohio State in the Big Ten.

This is HUGE.

This is what you call a "Quality Win". Wisconsin should rebound and still be a huge team. But this will play when the committee meets in early March.

Dead Schembechlers Hitting Mainstream?

Haven't found the cnnsi article yet...assuming there is one.

I haven't figured out if the columnists haven't figured out the punk rock jokes...or if they're just playing along. It's amazing though...through it all, they haven't said what band they usually are....and right now, they're getting more pub than the "day job" band ever got.

We'll know it's over the top if they show up on College Game Day or if footage is shown during the game.

And, in keeping with all things punk....I urge the folks on CD 101 to call out Biafra on his blatent sell out when he inevidably phones in on Thursday or Friday morning.

Hollywood, Pollutes...Surprise?!


I guess it takes studies these days.

With the chatter about being carbon neutral and a bunch of other green noble tasks...it's a wonder anyone has bothered to notice that movies and TV tend to be...well....not green at all. Blowing stuff up tends to be....not green. The high powered lighting systems...not green. All that makeup...not green or animal friendly.

Why it takes university studies to prove the obvious is quite amazing.

Turk Gone

It was only a matter of time, but Gallant is finally gone. Surprisingly, this happened during "The Week". Maybe more people watch the sportscasts and they knew this would make a splash? Why did they wait?

Only one left to go is Dougy Mac. Mr. Mac needs to get that done ASAP.
