Robin and the dating scene - VIDEO

robins big dateBased on some of the comments on the Popwatch blog, I already know this clip is old, but since it's new to me, it's probably also new to many other people.

And also, anything with Sam Rockwell is worth checking out at least once.

Rockwell plays Batman, though he's not the dark, mysterious hero we're all familiar with. Actually, he does everything in his power to ruin things for Robin (Justin Long, the "Mac" in those Mac/PC ads) as Robin tries to woo a lady (Callie Thorne of Rescue Me) at a local restaurant.

Everybody Hates Chris: Everybody Hates Baseball

everybody hates chris(S02E18) This wasn't the funniest episode of Everybody Hates Chris, but I did like how it explored the dynamic between Chris and his father.

Kurt Vonnegut once told McSweeneys that a male writer should never write about his father: "you learn about life by the accidents you have, over and over again, and your father is always in your head when that stuff happens."

King of the Hill: Luanne Gets Lucky

Lucky: I'm not sayin' stumpin' isn't risky. When you're out there with nothing but chains, beer and a winch you could rip your arm off and there ain't no one out there to sue.

Hank wasn't featured much in this episode, and that's rare. It seems that even when the plot doesn't revolve around Hank, he still serves as the lone voice of reason that helps maintain some semblance of sanity and common sense among his friends and family. Ultimately, he's the one that helps guide the story to its conclusion. This episode, however, focused on Luanne and Lucky, two people who pretty much live by their own code, which doesn't leave much room for Hank or anyone else. It also left us viewers with a nice little story about the compromises and sacrifices one has to make when they decide to spend their lives with someone.

Which television actors are date-worthy?

patrick dempseyHey, lookie here. It's yet another poll listing the hunkiest guys in Hollywood. This time, the schtick is who is date-able. Or, as Elaine would say, "Sponge-worthy". (Puh-lease. Don't even try to tell me you'd go on a date with one of these hunks just to talk) Lifetime Television is responsible for this poll, which lists former television doctor, George Clooney, and current television McDreamy doctor, Patrick Dempsey, as top choices for Preferred Celebrity Dates. The list of winners also includes fellow television doctors Noah Wyle (ER), Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), and Matthew Fox (Lost).

Eh. The doctor thing doesn't really do it for me. What other categories could we choose to vote on most date-able actors? Bad boys? Nerds? Cops? Superheroes? What characteristic do you find sexy?

Trump says he'd date his daughter. Gross.

Ivanka trumpDonald Trump just entered the Joe Simpson Club of Creepy Dads, for telling the gals on The View that, if Ivanka wasn't his daughter, he'd probably be dating her. Ew? I know he's desperate to get better ratings for 24-year-old Ivanka's five-episode arc on The Apprentice, but... ew! I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. He also said she has a nice body and would look good if she wanted to pose in Playboy magazine. Ick. Ick. Ick. I guess that Martha Stewart feud didn't create enough headlines so he's working another angle.

While that's super gross, Joe Simpson remains the ultimate creepy dad for talking about the size of daughter Jessica Simpson's breasts.

The latest Bachelor breakup

travis stork sarah stone break upIf reality television stars can't find true love through liquor and hot tubs, is there any hope for the rest of us? It's true, the latest happy couple created on ABC's The Bachelor is splitsville. Despite professing mutual admiration for each other when The Bachelor concluded last month, it turns out that Travis Stork and Sarah Stone weren't meant to be. Stork gave Stone a diamond ring on a necklace during the season finale on Feb. 27th, but didn't propose. He just said he wanted to return to Nashville (hometown for both of them) to see how it goes. Of course, that actual interaction happened in November and the two haven't been allowed to see each other or date until the season finale aired last month. Stork and Stone follow a long line of The Bachelor couples who haven't made it. In fact, the only couple that survives is The Bachelorette's Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter, who married in December 2003.
