R.I.P. Paul Newman

If you want a great and funny Paul Newman movie, then you need to see "Slapshot"

I fell in love with this movie before I fell in love with hockey and now its a ritual of fall, winter, spring, summer...heck anytime to watch this. You have to watch like the Rocky Horror picture show and say the lines right along with them or you are not a fan.
This is another great clip from "Slap Shot". If you dont laugh then go to a game, then come home and watch it again.

Tv Favorites

Well some of my favorite shows have premiered with their new season and so far they are worth the wait. Family Guy however is close to jumping the shark, it needs less Seth McFarland singing and more just plain funny stuff. The new season got off to a rocky start lastnight but by the end it had some laugh out loud jokes and references so I will continue. The Simpsons however may be on its last legs. They have in my own view gone past the much watch stage into "its still on?" area. I hope they can recapture some of the glory they have lost over the last 5 years.
"The Big Bang Theory" on CBS should be up for best comedy at the Emmys next year. It is one of the funniest and smartest shows on tv. It doesnt talk down to you it just assumes you are that smart and get the jokes and references. I love that idea, much like "Fraiser" was for most of its run.
Let me know what you like or dont like in the new tv year.
