DO YOU KNOW?
Jack Kutcher asks: "I read an article, in the Los Angeles Times about the passing of Bill Stulla, Engineer Bill, of early 50's daytime T.V.  I remember the "Red light, green light" game, but I also remember a game where the host made a circle with his thumb & index finger, put it to his eye, and pushed it away from his eye while saying, "Zooooom", then, on occasion, would pull it back in towards his eye while saying, Mooooooz."I e-mailed the reporter at the Times asking if he recalled this game.  His response was that other people had e-mailed the same question, and that it wasn't Engineer Bill who played the game, but he would research it and get back to me. After reading your site, and the article by Tim Barnes, I thought, who better to ask.  So, hence the reason for this email.  Do you recall who did the "Zoooooom, Moooooos" bit?"

NEW SHOW REVIEWTerminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Terminator The Sarah Connor ChronicleThe fireworks come fast and furious when Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles returns with a surprising episode chock full of action and suspense.

Having missed the last few episodes of season one (I'll have to catch up on DVD) I'm a bit behind the curve but this season opener works remarkably well on its own.

When we left our intrepid heroes, everything was pretty much laid to waste and Cameron, the lovely robot from the future sent to save John Connor, is down for the count. Thankfully she gets back up in short order but is she there to save John or destroy him?

Terminator The Sarah Connor ChronicleSarah's former lover Charlie, played by stoic Dean Winters (Rescue Me), is also quickly closing in. He has his own reasons for tracking down the duo as does an undercover killer future bot that easily eliminated 20 FBI agents. Catherine Weaver (Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage) joins the cast as a shadowy CEO who promises to dramatically shift the dynamic.

At the end of the hour comes a shocking revelation in a clever scene that promises to step up the danger for John and his star crossed mom.

Overall this is an exhilarating sci-fi adventure series, perhaps not on the level of Heroes or Battlestar Galactica, but it makes for enjoyable viewing. The car chases and smash and runs are exhilarating even if things get a tad too melodramatic for my taste.

Terminator The Sarah Connor ChronicleTerminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles debuts Monday, September 8th at 9:00pm ET/PT on FOX.

NEW SHOW REVIEWHouse Season 5 review

House - Season 5

House Season 5Judging from the first two episodes of season 5, House is still in tip top shape.

The cutting humor, the intricate, intelligent storylines, the bizarre mysterious ailments, and the neurotically dysfunctional relationships still resonate - this show is as good or better than ever.

I don't like to give spoilers, suffice to say House and his not-so-merry band are off to a rocky start for season 5, with a new team in place and internal turmoil that shatters the fragile dynamic.

The first episode opens eight weeks after the death of Wilson's girlfriend and it's clear he wants nothing more to do with House or the hospital given the circumstances. So who can House turn to when he's stumped or in need of someone to bounce ideas off of? That question is answered in episode two when House turns to an acerbic private investigator, adroitly played by Michael Weston, who's almost as mercurial as House himself.

There are plenty of laughs and shockers, the producers have done a nice job of shaking things up without resorting to blunt force trauma.

House is on a roll, the show returns to FOX on Tuesday, September 16th at 8:00 ET/PT.

NEW SHOW REVIEW: Prison Break Season 4

Prison Break Season 4 review

Welcome to the new Prison Break coming September first - or as I like to call it now, Michael Scofield, Secret Agent.

I can only think of a handful of shows I've enjoyed more than Prison Break, after three utterly amazing seasons the series bursts out of it's confines with a two-parter that unveils a new concept - and the results are mixed.

Prison Break Season 4 photoAs always on Prison Break, revenge and self-preservation provide the motivation for moving forward, only now the setting is Los Angeles where everyone's breaking into, not out of, places.

As the first episode of season 4 opens, all of our protagonists are out of Soma prison. T-Bag is on the run with a satchel full of cash and an overwhelming desire to kill Michael. Bellick and Sucre are sprung thanks to a fire, Link and that annoying kid LJ are content to remain in Panama while an angry Michael traveling to the states (where he is no longer a fugitive, if you'll remember) to seek vengeance on Gretchen for killing his true love Dr. Sara Tancredi.

Turns out Sara's not really dead. I don't feel I'm giving much away by telling you that since it's made clear in the first five minutes and I never believed it was her head in the box to begin with.

Prison Break Season 4 reviewedThe threat of prison once again traps Michael and his brother into an unholy alliance, this time working for the U.S. government to take down The Company and here's where logic flies right out the window. You're not going to believe the team they assemble to carry out this formidable task - Sara, Sucre, Link's mortal enemy former FBI agent Mahone, and Bellick, the sniveling, back-stabbing former prison guard who made so much trouble for them in two different joints. Michael allows Bellick on the team because, "Sucre vouched for you," completely ignoring their long, tortured, messy history together.

This makes little sense, of course, but it gives the producers ample opportunity to revive old tensions and still move the show in a radically different direction. At least they left perpetual kidnap victim LJ at home.

The first episode of season four is all exposition so it's fortuitous that a second hour follows where a mysterious Greek mythology reference is revealed and T-Bag is given a radical new lease on life after eating some "bad Mexican." Sadly, these first two episodes don't come close to the kind of excitement one expects from Prison Break but the possibility exists for improvement.

There are some welcome additions to the cast, especially Cress Williams as a fierce, cold-blooded operative out to stop our heroes at any cost and James Hiroyuki Liao as a criminally inclined whiz kid forced on the team.

Now that Prison Break has become The A-Team will viewers follow along?
