(Heck, it's got to be more TV-related than anything we've posted about Kevin Federline.)
The blog San Diego Serenade has brilliantly fused game play from RBI Baseball with Vin Scully's TV call of the Mets' comeback against the Red Sox in the classic Game 6 of the 1986 World Series (aka The Buckner Game). According to Conor, the owner of the blog, he initially wanted to enter this video in a YouTube contest, but it came out six minutes too long. But the video is rocketing around the blogosphere as we speak, so his hard work will soon be rewarded... somehow.
My favorite part: how Conor displays the "Miller Lite Player of the Game." It's even funnier because I'm a Yankee fan.
The embedded video is after the jump.
I think I'd create a nasty housewife who befriends Gabrielle and feeds her lots of food that she swears is fat free, so Gabrielle gains a bunch of weight and no one wants her. What kind of scandal would you create on DH?
While I'm enjoying this show still, after this episode I had to wonder if I could have just cut-and-pasted my review from the last episode before Christmas and changed a few words. The title: over the top cute (but still far better than "First Act of War" or something). The outfits: better, especially the yummy chocolate silk jammies. The angry teenaged daughter: still angry, still whiny, still want to slap her. Nathan Templeton: no longer evil. Just... not. What's with that?
What did I like? Well, those jammies. The nicely-built cliffhanger. The way Mac answers her phone while wearing aforementioned chocolate-colored jammies. It's soooo Presidential. The developing relationship between Jim Gardner and Rob Calloway - the dynamic works pretty well, sparring but with growing respect for one another. And Gardner with the loyalty? Boy that was a nice (if canned) little speech. I could almost hear the orchestra in the background soaring as he delivered the "I love the Pres" address to the gathered generals and admirals and such. Finally, I am going on record as saying that Ever Carradine's hair was nice this time. It still needs to be shorter but, at long last, it looks like it belongs on an adult. With a job.
Sounds scintillating. Reminds me of the video game program that was on Channel 11 here in New York (WPIX), where kids would call in and yell "PIX! PIX! PIX!" in order to move the gun/shooter/runner/etc. on an Intellivision video game. All that show did was make me want to buy an Intellivision and play the game myself. But I was stuck with an Atari. Ah, well.
Announcement after announcement, screen shots a plenty, and trailers galore. But when is it going to come out? 24: The Game is now set to be released on February 28th, 2006 exclusively for the Playstation 2. Set in between seasons two and three, the game will explain what happened to Palmer in regards to Mandy's attempt on his life, how did Jack get involved with the Salazar drug ring, and how Chase got involved with CTU. Written by Duppy Demetrius (he penned episodes for seasons two, three, and four), the game also features the voices of Kiefer Sutherland, Elisha Cuthbert, James Badge Dale, Reiko Aylesworth, and Carlos Bernard... essentially the entire cast, minus Dennis Haysbert. So for all you 24 fans out there, this might be a reason to get a Playstation 2 this Christmas.
UPDATE: We have a winner! Thanks for trying, everyone!
They made us laugh. They sometimes caused chaos. They always wore ridiculous outfits. They made too many post-school afternoons fly by. Celebrity game show panelists were the bread and butter of daytime entertainment from the 1950s until the 1980s, and, while it was nice to see ordinary people win gobs of cash, viewers tuned into many of these star-driven game shows just to see what wackiness would ensue next.
So, in an effort to help you decide which shows to watch on GSN that aren't poker or blackjack-related, I am providing a list of five people (actually six) who made the most out of their measly for-scale paychecks and made the shows they were on the best they could be. The list begins after the jump.
This is a really cool TV quiz game. It's Guess the Dictator and/or Television Sit-Com character. I'm really impressed with this game and I've had a lot of fun trying to stump it. The way you play is you think of a television sitcom character. (I guess you could do the dictator one too, if that's your thing.) It doesn't actually have to be a sitcom character because I tried it with some TV drama characters too and it worked. So pick a character (a semi-known one like Uncle Jesse on Full House or Magnum P.I. or something) and answer the questions like you are that character. It'll ask you stuff like "Do you have chest hair?" or "Did you try and conquer Europe?" or "Do you work in a coffee shop?" Eventually, the quiz game will be able to quess what character you are. (Although some of them take a little while.) It's pretty neat. I haven't been able to stump it yet, and I even did some contemporary characters like Seth Cohen from The O.C. and Jack from Lost. Let me know if anybody can stump it.
