Thanks for nothing ABC

leave a comment »

(A poorly written rant) So, when I was in junior high, the television miniseries “V” was a big thing.  It was  a great bit of television science fiction for that time.  It was followed up with a second mini series, and then a full blown series.

Anyway, a year ago, when the “V” remake first aired on ABC, I was very exictied.  I had been looking forward to it, and I made sure I found time to watch it.  It was… different then the original, and…  well… not that great.  It was okay, though.  Good enough for me to watch the entire season.

But, I hadn’t been setting the DVR to record it.  This was a Hulu show.  This was something I watch online as I was doing other things.  (The show wasn’t good enough to warrent my undivided attention.)

Well, the second season started recently.  Even though the first season was… lacking, I was looking forward to the secon year.  Why? Because two of the main actors from the original version where going to have reoccuring roles this year.  So, the other day, I logged into to Hulu, searched for “V” and found…

Nothing.  Hulu wasn’t hosting the show online this year.  No problem, I’ll just go directly to ABC.com.  Got there, searched for “V”, and found…

Nothing.

AAAAAARRRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!

From what I understand, the ratings for “V” have been pretty weak.  I would think that ABC would want to have this show out there, to grab as much attention (and eyeballs) as it could, so that people will start to tune in when it first airs on the boob tube.  But no.

Anyway, this is my frustration for the day (one of many).  Time to see if I can find a “V” torrent.  Wish me luck.  Cuz I am not going to wait for the dvd to come out.  By that time, I’l have forgotten all about the show.

Thanks for letting me vent about something so unimportant.  But then, that’s what the internet was invented for, right?

I now present, some old school “V”

Don Draper Meets Kermit The Frog

Today, I stumbled upon this old film by Jim Henson, made for IBM in 1967.  Made me wonder if we will start to see stuff like this on MAD MEN in the next year or so.

I just watched yesterdays episode of THE DAILY SHOW, and I have to ask…

Is Kirsten Gillibrand the most adorable senator, or is she the most adorable senator EVER?  You be the judge.

(I like my ladies to be all smart like!)

Why do I continue to watch V?  It’s not a great show.  Sorry, I said it.
