Amuse Me

Late Night Television…

First Mike tried to turn on Cartoon Network, but it only took me 3 seconds to comment on how that needed to go. Then we watched “Iron Chef”, which was fine. But when it was over there wasn’t a lot to choose from. He tried “South Park”, which got the same reaction as Cartoon Network. Then it was “Blazing Saddles” which had this gross fart scene – and I just had to turn it. He handed me the Tivo remote, and I changed it to Robocop. I mean, if I’m going to watch bad TV, at least it can be good, right? Know what I discovered? The asshole doctor on ER, Romano, is one of the crooks in Robocop! Isn’t it amusing when you see people that are more famous today in the roles they aren’t known for? He was also in “Fame”, so now I’m going to have to watch that again just to find him in the film!

Edited: Eww! I forgot! Paul McClane’s character in Robocop is the one whose skin melts off. He has the same look on his face as he did when Romano’s arm was cut off by the helicopter in ER. Ewwww…

I’m on the same boat as Laura. I refuse to move into any area that does not offer Cartoon or Food Network. *lol*

I own Blazing Saddles and almost all of the SP episodes available on DVD already… Tee hee…

Then again the guy that plays Red Foreman on That 70’s Show is also one of the bad guys in RoboCop isn’t he? For me, Robocop would also be on the very bottom of any movie list. Unless something like Beaches comes on… *shudder*

This is why I love the internet. I had this conversation the other day with a friend; the internet has fundamentally changed the way we shoot the shit. Used to be, you’d have a conversation about a movie, and you’d say something like, “It had that guy in it, the guy that was in that other movie, you know… damn, it’s on the tip of my tongue…” And then you’d call another buddy, and then you’d call your sister, trying to find the name of that guy or that movie. Nowadays, you log on and look it up on IMDb, and the dispute is over in 20 seconds.

I thought about it earlier – I might have reacted better to Blazing Saddles if it was the beginning of the movie and not somewhere in the middle. I think I saw it years ago, but I don’t remember enough of it to just jump right in. I’m like that with most TV shows though – I want to know the full story, and I’m not entertained by it if I just jump in at the middle. Explaining my love for the Tivo…
