Sitting here with the wife watching the season premier of America’s got Talent. Wow. Sharon Osborne and David Hasselhoff, it’s like American Idol done on a 100th of the budget with written in scenes, slapstick comedy, and horrific auditions. Best quotes of the night:

  • “I drive a bus” – Mr. Bill (singer)
  • “eeaahhh, eeaahhh, eeaahhh” – buzzers before the Elvis even sang
  • “You got better, and your wife got worse” – Piers (the judge)
  • “Have you guys ever tried waxing?” – Sharon
  • “What are you going to do?” “I’m going to entertain you!” – The Hoff & Andrew the sax player

This went on for two hours, and I watched every minute of it.

I grew up with Star Wars. I specifically remember playing with my Death Star base with Luke, Leah, Han Solo, C3PO, R2D2, Darth Vader, and a Stormtrooper or two. It had the trash compactor filled with sponge-like trash – it was so cool. I think my best friend at that time had an actual Millennium Falcon – now THAT was cool!

So you’ll understand why I set my DVR to record last weekend’s “Star Wars: the Legacy Revealed” on the History Channel. Just got a chance to watch it today and I was not dissapointed (although it was weird seeing Dan Wrather talking about the Force).

All in all, a very interesting show. It really pulled to light the amazing storytelling by Lucas comparing the movie and its characters to historical stories & myths, biblical stories, archetypes, governments, wars, etc. Pretty interesting stuff. If you are either a Star Wars or History fan, I highly recommend it.

danceWell I may not dance (per se), but I am man enough to admit that I have a new favorite show: So You Think You Can Dance. I am thoroughly addicted after 2 nights. I pretty much thought that my TV watching life was over after last week. No more LOST, 24, The Office, American Idol, Survivor – what’s left? I know, that’s exactly what I was thinking! Until we watched this season of “So You Think You Can Dance” – these people are amazing! Tonight’s episode was the best – there was a robot dancing guy who has scoliosis; he was the best dang robot dancer I have EVER seen (and I have seen a lot!). So I have a new favorite show, a new reason to set my DVR, and a new way to waste an hour in the evening.

We’re watching “The Next Best Thing” as well – and I laughed pretty hard.
