Sometimes hard boiled sometimes runny, It comes from a chicken not a bunny dummy.

Quick Hitters and Random Thoughts

--The Shield. Damn. That was some of the best and most gut wrenching stuff it has ever produced. Just a perfect finale to the best cop show ever (apologies to Starsky, but not Hutch). Hopefully I won't have nightmares seeing pregnant Mara and Jackson lifelessly laying in bed. F'n Shane! And dammit you knew it was going to end badly for Ronnie, but damn. I was hoping for a better ending with Dutch breaking down that little punk serial killer, but it didn't happen. By the way, Billings' attorney is Dutch's real-life wife, Julia Campbell. Everyone else came back for one last scene this season so why not Andre 3000. As for Vic, he's not in prison, but he ain't free either. Michael Chiklis, like everyone else, was just fantastic. So much emotion conveyed with a simple look. So many times you rooted for him, so many times he made you cringe, so many times you wanted him to pop Aceveda like a pimple, so many Tuesdays spent with The Strike Team and the men and women in The Barn...Great times.

--In Super Duper News...The entire first episode of the new season of Flight of the Conchords will be available on on December 17th. That's about two and a half weeks before HBO premieres it.

--Overexposure thy name is Michael Phelps. Phelps' Palms cocktail waitress of choice thy name is Caz Pal...
Phelps' medal is in the middle.

--We all know Big 10 games are on par with ballets and non-video game symphonies as the most boring things you could possibly attend. So of course at an Iowa/Minnesota game the other week two Hawkeyes fans were busted for having sex in a bathroom stall. They didn't mind putting on a show for the 15 witnesses and police. Once the police ended the show, well it's hard to sum it up better than the AP account:
"The woman, 38, was turned over to her husband. The man, 26, was turned over to his girlfriend."
Musta been a fun ride home. Well maybe not for the woman, Lois Feldman since she ran away from her husband and started walking until another woman picked her up. Lois also lost her job, which kinda sucks, but at least she has the most supportive husband in the world. Her husband blames himself for not going with her when she went to the restroom.

--That didn't take long...Twilight begins shooting a sequel in March.

--Heroes and a couple of other NBC shows are taking the month of January off. This so NBC can offer us such awesome fair as Superstars of Dance and some dating show produced by Ryan Seacrest who apparently does not sleep.

--And Brooke Burke is your Dancing champion. Sorry Warren, you still got to dance with Kym Johnson for a couple of months and that couldn't possibly be a bad thing.

--Eric Moulds punched out an autograph-seeker in Buffalo?! Someone wanted Eric Moulds' autograph?! Another awesome Texans free agent signee once upon a time.

--Boris Becker probably won't have a lot of trouble finding a replacement, but he probably should find a fiance that won't break it off via text like Sandy Meyer-Woelden did. Apparently Sandy used to spend a lot of time on Tommy Haas.

--I'll take Manny over Oscar. Sugar Shane and my boy Margarito finally a done deal for late January. On Valentine's Day we get an intriguing matchup of Alfredo Angulo and Ricardo Mayorga.

--More quality programming for me to avoid on VH-1. Confessions of a Teen Idol will catch you up with Eric Nies from The Real World, Blue Lagoon's Christopher Atkins, some kid from Baywatch, and Jamie Walters from 90210.

--Good frackin' news! Caprica is set as a prequel series to Battlestar Galactica.

Questions, comments or if you wish Claire had died instead of Elle...
