    First, this "Grease" thing, can this rival to American Idol get any traction?

    Finally, those "People Choice" awards...I simply do not believe they chose Ellen over Oprah as fave talk show host.

  • Here's some TV tidbits.

    This past Friday I watched a "20/20" episode I can't get out of my mind.

    A young, vulnerable teen is forced to strip for an alleged search then for three hours is continually humiliated and forced to do unspeakable things.

    This while her horrible boss at McDonald's allows it to go on although the teen begs her for mercy.

    It really happened. And a whole bunch of people were so despicable, stupid and immoral that it boggles the mind.

    And the real perpetrator walked off completely free.

  • TV TIDBITS-"Cheaper by the Dozen" Movie Unlike the Book of My Memory


  • Been catching up on some old and not so old movies during this Christmas TV nothing season.

    This week, a review of "Cheaper by the Dozen -2".

    As a child I loved the book. I'm not at all sure Steve Martin captures the spirit of the book's character.

    And a short touch on a movie about those Australian parents whose baby was killed by a dingo. The movie did not deal at all do that possible True Crime in terms of parents as perpetrators rather than a dingo.

    Indeed, the stupidity to defend these killing parents continues and I am amazed at those who continue to carry John Ramsey's water.

    More specifically, those fashion shows such as "How Do I Look?" or "What Not to Wear" that would have an unfashionable schlep nominated by family and friends made over from dumpy to delicious.
