I don't know if Legend of the Seeker could be considered a guilty pleasure or not. I mean, if you like something, why does it have to be a "guilty" pleasure? Having said that, I think a lot of people would consider this show something they're not willing to admit they like. But I'll admit it: I like it. It's a fun show.

How can there be so many DVDs released in one day and there not be one that I want to buy? I never got into Stargate, I don't want to own Dallas on DVD, ditto Reba, and I refuse to buy Walker Texas Ranger because a.) it's not very good, and b.) it replaced a show that I really loved in the early 90s. I enjoyed Benny Hill, but I don't know if I enjoyed it enough to own it. So it looks like I'm going to save some money this week.
Yeah, right. Like I won't find something to buy that was released a while ago.

Lots of complete series sets this week, including two you probably thought you'd never see, Quark and Ultraman. I have no nostalgic memories of Ultraman, but Quark was a show I enjoyed. It's also neat to see shows like The Shari Lewis Show or DVD.
I wonder why the Back To You set isn't a complete series set instead of just Season 1? Maybe it was already in production before the show was canceled.

(S18E18) Well, what do you know, Mickey Mantle did used to do commercials for Maypo. Thanks, Rich Texan!
In general, I liked this episode. At least, it had a lot more laugh-out-loud moments for me than last week's episode. I don't think the town has turned on Bart so savagely since that time he cut the head off the Jebediah Springfield statue. I thought the absurdity of everyone getting upset over children's sport made it even funnier. I also loved how, in the end, a picket sign that reads "Bart Sucks" lowers and then raises again with the phrase "We're Sorry."
(S06E07) To paraphrase a line from Woody Allen, the only love that truly lasts is unrequited love. That's a good way to sum up this episode where Bart falls in love with Reverend Lovejoy's daughter, Jessica. Another great summation comes from Lisa, who tells Bart, quite wisely, "It's naive to think you can change a person." Of course, this being The Simpsons, Lisa qualifies her advice by insisting the hunky boy who works at the library might be changed if only he gave Lisa a chance.
Ian McShane, who went from pleasant British antiques dealer Lovejoy to pottymouth brothel owner Al Swearengen in the HBO series Deadwood, has joined the cast of Hot Rod; a new movie being produced by Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels. According to our sister site Cinematical, the comedy will star Andy Samberg (known for the famous SNL sketch 'Lazy Sunday' and, um, that's about it) and his buddies from the Lonely Island comedy troupe.
In the movie, McShane will play stepfather to Samberg's character, who plans to jump over Snake River in a moped in order to impress his stepdad. I'm sure that hilarity will ensue and that McShane will be able to use his versatile swearing talents in varying comedic ways. Or, McShane could shock us all and portray a straight-laced, milk-drinking Republican from the Midwest.
I'm surprised that Samberg is getting a starring role so soon. I mean, it sometimes takes years of mediocre acting on SNL just to get a small role in a Michaels' production. Gosh, I guess the times are a changing.
