The day -- the very day -- I mention ER here, I find out next season will be the last one.
I'm not very torn up about it -- it jumped the shark a while back* -- but still, I had to find out today?!
And in other TV news, who's going to tell that Dayton kid from The Baby Borrowers** that he needs to go somewhere and do a solo stroke flick and/or a Peter Z Pan movie***? Oh come on. You know you'd watch it. And I refuse to believe he uses that much peroxide, Nair and fake tan without self-selecting to look like a twink.
Not that I'm convinced he hasn't already, but he is the sort of ammo that the US twink market needs against Eurocreme and the other leading companies from Eastern Europe. And something in me is adamant that the US can -- and should --compete in this market.
*I'm pretty sure it happened 'round about the time /every/ episode got promoted as "a very special/touching/can't miss episode."
**You should really, really hate NBC for thinking you need to be watch hours of TV to learn that teen-agers are stupid and shouldn't (successfully) breed. I say "you" because *I* watched it and can't personally bitch. Granted, I probably watched with a creepy leer (see above), but I did watch it.
***No? Oliver Twink? Betwinked?**** The Da Vinci Load*****? Tell me he doesn't belong in there, somewhere.
****Well, obviously you know about the dreadful mike problems in the last few scenes. Marred an otherwise lovely film.
*****The gay one. Apparently, there's also a straight porn title called "The Da Vinci Load." Who knew?
