Quick Hitters and Random Thoughts
don’t even know what to say about the season finale of Spartacus except
That was one fantastic ride
this season. A ride that’s over for some really outstanding characters.
I hated to see the Egyptian giant get over on Oenomausa second time. RIP Oenomaus.
really hated to see Ashur go out at the hands of Naevia. I know Ashur
isn’t as skilled as Spartacus or Crixus, but he did take down a gang of
Glaber’s Roman soldiers and now freakin’ Naevia kills him?! Ashur was
played perfectly byNick Tarabay. RIP Ashur…not really you were a piece
As for the show’s matriarch. When Lucretia let herself fall
off the cliff with Ilythia’s baby in tow, I mean, what. a. scene. Bravo
to Lucy Lawless for a flawless performance in all three seasons of the
show. The show wouldn’t have made it this far without her name and
performance. RIP Lucretia.
A really good in-depth interview with the show’s creator, Steven S. DeKnight, from The A.V. Club. Can’t wait to see Crassus and a young Julius Caesar enter
the fray next season.

--Has anyone recorded
“Heinz Is On My Side” yet? Fat Betty was an interesting twist, but the
fat suit or whatever they did to add the weight seemed odd to me. I’d
like to see Harry go on to become the creator of competitive eating.
--Chevy Chase and Community creator Dan Harmon aren’t exactly peaches
and cream. Chevy left a nice little voicemail for Harmon. This voicemail followed a back and forth between
the two which led to what sounds like one awkward wrap party.
Chevy: "You're not funny....You're okay."
I thought the Florida teenage girl who picked up three DUI’s in three weeks was impressive. However, two DUI’s in a matter of 17 hours is above and beyond. Wait, he was a school bus driver and his first DUI was while driving 142 students?! Bra-vo.
--Damn, I'm loving watching these Rockets.
--Smart move by Borgias not attempting to
premiere opposite Game of Thrones. Hopefully this season is a little
more even than last.
--I swore off The Killing after not really
feeling it last season and then that debacle of a finale. I may be
wrong, but I think I heard they’re not revealing the killer until this
season’s finale. Yeah, even if that’s your intention why on Earth would
you let your audience know that?!
--Matthew McConaughey on the
season premiere of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is about right or rather about aw right, aw right, aw right, aw right.
--Elias points out that Rajon
Rondo’s fifth triple-double of the season is more than Dwyane Wade has
in his entire career and is the same number that Isiah Thomas had in his
--It is one thing, albeit a foolish thing, when you
don’t tap in an octagon. It’s another thing to not tap in a living room.
Stephen Arceneaux was watching WrestleMania with friends and family in
Destrehan, Louisiana. The 24-year-old had about 4 inches and 100 pounds
on his 14-year-old cousin. They were rasslin’ when the kid put Stephen
in a rear naked choke. Apparently Stephen wouldn’t tap, so after 30-40
seconds Stephen’s face started turning blue which is the international
tap, I think. Stephen stopped breathing and sadly never started again.
--I like oysters. I like Kate Upton. I like Kate Upton and oysters.
I like following @si_vault
--Escargot food truck? Hell yes.
are a ton of reasons to be excited about Seth Siegel-Gardner and
Terrance Gallivan finally finding a spot for their restaurant(s), The Pass and Provisions. Very high on the list is that Annie Potts will take
your reservations…at least according to this Vimeo that Seth created.
you’re a cop and you roll up to a possible prostitute and you
proposition her and she responds that she’ll do the deed as long as you
get her a couple of double cheeseburgers off the McDonald’s value menu,
then, can’t you just buy her a burger, tell her to get off the streets
and let her go on her merry way??? Nah, let’s take her down!!! Crime
everywhere else has been solved!!!
off his sweep of the Razzies comes word Adam Sandler is looking to
remake Summer School. Zero chance this has a quarter of the amount of
entertainment provided by Mr. Shoop, Chainsaw, Anna-Maria, Shawnee Smith
and the lovely Courtney Thorne-Smith.
Questions, comments or if you’re going to Childish Gambino Friday!!!!
