The finalists for this season’s America’s Got Talent were revealed last night, but this time there were 5 acts instead of 4.
First, allow me to rant for a moment about the title of this show. I think it is an insult to our country and our culture. America doesn’t got talent, we have talent. America has talent. It’s something you may have remembered from English class oh, so many years ago. I propose a new subtitle to the show: “America’s Got Talent: But they ain’t none too good educated.”
President Obama is speaking to Congress tonight and guess who will not be airing the speech? Fox. That’s right; they’ve decided to stick with their normal programming and air Glee, the network’s only new 1-hour comedy.
Glee is a TV show about a struggling high school musical-performance club. The club is led by the school’s Spanish teacher who recruits an interesting bunch of kids: A wanna-be Diva that no one likes, a reluctant jock, a seemingly gay student with an unusually high voice, a black girl with attitude and fashion sense, and a paraplegic with mad guitar skills.
You may have seen the pilot episode of Glee by now. I was mildly disappointed. The ads (which Fox has been pushing relentlessly) gave me higher expectations. I guess I just expected to laugh a little more. Keep Reading…
One of the new movies to hit the silver screen today is Extract. Trailers can always be deceiving, but from the looks of this one, I think it might pack some humor.
First off, I think Jason Bateman is a very talented actor with the perfect amount of wit. He was hilarious in Arrested Development.
Where I’m concerned is with the casting of Ben Affleck. I have to admit, I didn’t realize it was him at first (mostly because of the long hair and the ratty beard) but he wasn’t acting like Ben Affleck is prone to act. (I’m not talking behavior, just horrible acting skills). Maybe he’ll do a good job.
Here’s the Extract Movie Trailer. Come back and tell us what you thought of the show after you’ve seen it. Ciao
