Secret Agent Man

The Five: Reasons I won't be watching The Prisoner TV remake

The Prisoner Patrick McGoohanI'm not the kind of person who gets her panties in a twist over a favorite book being brought to the screen, a movie being turned into a television series or Shakespeare getting a modern revamp. Different mediums. Different stories. Different times. In the hands of the right artist, you get an equally exciting cultural product to hug, love, squeeze and call "George." Even crappy re-tellings don't have to denigrate the original. They're not necessary - High Fidelity didn't need to be a Broadway musical; Gus Van Sant didn't need to remake Psycho shot-for-shot; and no one needs to see The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. But, for the most part, these things come and go. They haven't bothered me any... until now.

A whole bunch of Anderson Cooper videos

Anderson CooperThey're having a contest to find the best Anderson Cooper videos. If that sentence doesn't make sense to you, let me explain. The web site All Things Anderson is searching for the best Anderson Cooper-centric fan video. (What, you wanted to see Nancy Grace videos?)

Robin does a montage of photos set to Johnny Rivers' "Secret Agent Man," while Book Asylum's entry is "Inside The Tornado" (though shouldn't it be a song with "hurricane" in the title?). My favorite is probably Robin's "Comfortably Numb," because it seems to fit the montage the best, though Rachel's "The Boy From New York City" hits the mark too.

And now I think I've seen all of the Anderson Cooper music videos I ever need to see. Voting is still open, so head on over there.
