A Fine Line Between Stupid And Clever

Best Of 2007

Posted by bmac on December 26, 2007

According to me. My first end of year with a blog, so I’m gonna indulge.

Best T.V. Shows-If it was good, it probably got canceled. That’s the way it is now, if a show is not a monster smash from episode one, it’s over. Which sucks, because there were a couple shows that I thought were really great, but didn’t get American Idol numbers, so after investing in the characters and plot, tough shit, outta luck. Networks will not wait for an audience to build. Kinda like what destroyed the record industry. Two of those shows that I thought were excellent, but got cancelled:

Jericho-       jericho.jpg

Even though it started in 06, it ended in 07, so I’m counting it. Great show about a nuclear strike against the U.S. and the people in the town of Jericho, Kansas. This one was saved from the chopping block by fans sending bags of nuts to CBS. Also, one of the few shows on network TV with a conservative bent. I highly recommend this show, and you can probably rent it on DVD.

Journeyman-     journeyman.jpg

A show about a guy who travels to the past, but only 10-30 years and only in his city, to help some poor soul fix something or other. Kind of like “Quantum Leap” but better. This show has been cancelled, but fans are trying a Jericho like strategy by sending boxes of Rice-a-Roni to NBC. (the show is based in S.F.) We’ll see if it works, but I’m not holding my breath. Great show, I really liked it.

American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, and Dancing With The Stars OK, make fun of me, but I love these shows. Good wholesome family entertainment, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Hells Kitchen/Kitchen Nightmares-     ramseyb.jpg

I have a man-crush on Gordon Ramsay, what can I say? Kick ass shows. My only complaint is that it’s too “Foxified.” Fox has this habit on their reality shows of cranking the annoying music so loud, that it literally overpowers the dialogue, and it’s a constant bed of music, it never stops. Also, after every commercial break, a complete recap of the previous segment. A 60 minute show is probably about 30 in real time minus all of the previews/recaps. I hate the way Fox produces reality shows.

The Riches      riches.jpg

Starring Eddie Izzard, one of my favorite comedians. A show about a family of Travellers (con artists) that assume the identity of a wealthy family. Great show.

Big Brother 8-    evil-dick.jpg

My wife and I are freaks about this show, it consumed our summer. We clearly have no life. Evel Dick rocked this season of BB, probably the best reality show contestant Evah. Some of the most compelling reality TV I’ve ever seen, especially the after hours stuff on Showtime, and believe me when I say I’ve seen a lot of reality TV.

24/Lost   jack-bauer.jpg       lost.jpg

These are a given, although this year was the weakest season of 24 yet. But the worst season of 24 is better than the best season of most shows. I’m still diggin Lost, even though a lot of people are losing interest.

Best Movies-

This is a tough one. I don’t think there were any really great movies this year, just varying degrees of OK. It’s amazing to me the total crap that gets turned out in Hollywood these days, I mean, how hard can it be to cull together enough interesting material to fill 2 hours? Apparently, it’s damn near impossible. To be fair, I didn’t see a lot of movies this year, so this is the best of what I saw.

Transformers-               transformers.jpg

It was definitely kick-ass, it’s just too bad they put all that kick-assness behind a stupid toy. You know what made this movie work? Shia LaBeouf. His performance really humanized a movie about robots, that kid is really great. Without him, I think this would have been just a CGI wank a thon.

Ratatouille-               ratatouille.jpg

The Pixar people are awesome. This was a joy to watch, beautiful to look at, great music, good story, and the attention to detail is mind blowing. Too bad a cartoon had to be better than most live action movies this year. I also really liked Meet The Robinsons.

Pirates Of The Caribbean-Worlds End          pirates.jpg

Like Spider-Man 3, and Die Hard, this was good, but not great. I can’t put my finger on what went wrong in this series, but something did. Maybe it’s the ridiculously convoluted story, too much CGI, I don’t know. While entertaining, somethings just kinda hinky here.

Like I said, I didn’t see many movies this year.

Movies in 07 were underwhelming at best, as was the next category:

Music

To be honest, I got nothin here. Not one single artist grabbed my attention. I guess the big artists this year were Amy Winehouse and Kanye West. I could care less about either of them. I think Winehouse has already worn out her welcome, and as far as West goes, I refuse to acknowledge Rap as songwriting. Sorry, but you tell me one single Rap “song” that will stand the test of time, that will be played on the radio for the next 50 years. In a year or two, Kanye will be about as relevant as Sir Mix-A-Lot.

As dismal as music was, it wasn’t a pimple on the ass of the pathetic year in: Politics

The best? Sarkozy came here and sounded more patriotic than any American politician including George Bush, has for a while. The king of Spain told Chavez to shut up. That’s about it. American politicians continue to be an embarrassment to me, and my country. This was one of the worst years in American politics in a long, long time.

Overall, 2007 was a pretty lame year, notable more for bad things than great things, which will be on my much more fun “Worst of 2007.”

    I saw Ratatouille with the kids. I concur. It was a gas.

    I also agree with you on the politics front. Pitiful.

  2. OMG!! Have you not seen the Simpson’s movie? It was hi-freakin-larious!!!

  3. bmac said

    Gonna watch the Simpsons movie this weekend, as I pretty much watch everything on DVD these days. Can’t remember the last movie I saw in a theatre.

  4. Hanna said

    I agree that Journeyman and The Riches were two of the best shows last season ! I know that the end is nigh for Journeyman, but I hope they allow The Riches to continue. I hear the DVD set with Season One is out around Jan 5. Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver together is an amazing combination !

    My wife is a Reality TV freak. I use that time to take my daughter to the library or the park. But she gave up on Survivor, but still watches the celebrity dancing shows and seems to have had a thing for that race car driver guy.

    Me, I saw “Fracture”, and thought it was good. “Simpsons” was a letdown. “Becoming Jane” and “Amazing Grace” were good. As for my TV, I barely watch it, though the “Mythbusters” involving the mouse scaring the elephant was good. The only TV I watch is sports stuff, and the Patriots’ domination, coupled with the shittiness of the Rams, has taken the air out of football for me.

  6. bmac said

    Hanna, The Riches is coming back for a second season early in 08.
    Eddie, Fracture was pretty good, but I had to look it up to remember thatI saw it! Although I liked it, I guess it just didn’t leave much of an impression on me.
    As for not watching much TV, frankly I admire that.

  7. eddiebear said

    As for me not watching TV, I hardly mean it to sound superior. I just can’t stand the crap on the tube. And I sure as hell con’t want my daughter watching such bilge.

    I am hardly a prude, but I have to draw the line somewhere.

  8. cranky said

    Okay, nobody said it so I will: Jericho is the bomb. 😛 Go ahead and groan. I really like that show and look forward to its return. For TV I’m an NCIS and The Unit fan. Sadly, 24 has gone way down hill from its beginnings. I’ve only seen Amazing Grace once. That’s Holly Hunter, right? Yeah, I’d hit that if it weren’t for the restraining order.
