The Finder

So I saw the backdoor pilot of The Finder on Bones just like everyone else. I totally forgot about it because one is never sure if shows like this will get picked up or not in the end - that is the entire point of the backdoor pilots. I would've streamed the proper pilot episode online but saw it on a television unit anyway, thanks to FOX Asia. 

  • Pity Saffron Burrows didn't make it past the backdoor pilot. Oh well - her accent there was ridiculous: the woman's already English, there's no need for her (of all people) to put on such a hick English accent.
  • The sight of Jaime Murray as the crazy monokini-wearing drug lord was hilariously ridiculous. Her character's name also not easy to say. She should be a recurring guest star or something.
  • They added two more ladies to the show to balance out Michael Clarke Duncan and that other guy. Not sure how the young parolee fits into the scheme of things, but we'll wait and see.

I suppose if you like The Mentalist or some other quirky-character driven show (like say, House), you might want to give this a shot. I like it enough to keep watching if it's on TV, but I won't bother streaming it or what.

[VIDEO] Juggling Kristen Schaal

Kirsten Schaal is back yet again for another funny video playing the new Sony Xperia Play! This time she's shooting goals in Pro Evolution Soccer 2012, while juggling on the couch. Check out this short and humorous video below:

The Sony Xperia Play is a gaming oriented smartphone that features a 1Ghz Snapdragon Processor, Android operating system, and intuitive touchpad with buttons. This makes playing games like Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 a breeze, all the while being able to text your friends, or even browse Facebook.

I don't know if those really are her actual, (very) hirsute legs juggling the ball like a boss, but it still cracked me up all the same.

A proper NCIS:LA/H50 crossover! Yay!

Finally, a sweeps stunt I could live with - a PROPER NCIS: LA/Hawaii Five-0 crossover! Not the "Kensi-on-Hawaii-Five-0-for-3-minutes" crossover bullshit from last year.

According to this, it starts with Callen and Sam appearing on Hawaii Five-0 one night, and McGarrett and Danny on NCIS: LA the following night. Since it has been established on that previous episode that McGarrett knew Sam from way back when (during the SEAL days?), this is the only "in" that we know of.

Now I'm wondering whether H50 will crossover with Gibbs and co at some point in the future since they supposedly exist in the same universe together... Stiva, anyone?

Martha not renewed

Is anyone that surprised The Martha Stewart Show is not getting renewed?

I personally haven't seen the show for ages, so it's just as well.

Besides, doing things from scratch is NOT on most people's minds, okay. I like watching it, but only in the aspirational sense. Learnt some things over the years, but that's just about it.
