Saved By Dawson's Creek

Wow, Dawson's Creek sucks. I mean, it really sucks. I've never seen this show before but a rerun was on after a classic teen drama {snicker} "Saved By the Bell" and again, this show sucks. The long soliloquies, the cheesy music, the weird looking kids who pretend to have intellectual conversation through less than eloquent 15 minute long speeches to each other. I mean, wtf?! People liked this show?! I had always assumed it was similar to 90210 but this show sucks worse than any teen show I've ever watched.

I pretty much got the whole love triangle / teen angst thing down that I'm assuming has been building up for a while in one episode. At least Kelly, Slater and Zach didn't pretend to be "hidden" behind some kind of fake subtext while playing Paula Cole. Yes, SBTB was cheesy and silly but at the very least it didn't pretend to be more. This drivel pretends to be intellectual and intelligent while it's just Saved By the Bell at a creek with a marine bio class. They even have a Screech and a Mr. Belding. I mean, why must they pretend to be more than they are?

Yeah, I know this rant is about two years too late but I swear, I've never seen this show before today. Thank goodness I was sheilded.

New Shows, Hasselhoff-ilarious New Shows

Many of you know that I am a big "Knight Rider" fan but a not so big Hasselhoff fan (yes, you can be both). I've always called David Hasselhoff the William Shatner of my generation (ok, so technically William Shatner is in the same generation but he wasn't on "Baywatch") and I've always hoped that would catch on. So far, I think I'm the only one who calls him that.

Hasselhoff has a new show coming up where he's Simon Cowell to Brandy's Paula Abdoul and they judge talent. I forget what it's called but I call it funny.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I watch American Idol and that I love Simon Cowell. David Hasselhoff was crying on the finale of that show and I wondered why. To me (and to most of America), it looked like a desperate attempt to get some airplay. I didn't know about the new show. Regardless of popular opinion, I don't follow his career like a stalker (Bard :-p). However, the whole tears of joy thing makes sense now that I know he has a talent show he's promoting. He may be a bad actor, but tying himself to American Idol was pretty shrewd.

Apparently he's good at that. I just saw a preview to the episode airing tomorrow and he talked into his watch and said, "KITT get me out of here." God lord. Will anyone who watches American Idol-like shows get that?! I talk about Knight Rider to the kids I know and they look at me like I'm a freak. Ok, ok, so everyone looks at me that when I talk about Knight Rider, whether they know the show or not. However, the kids don't know what it is. Case in point, I saw a Trans-am on the parking lot one day and I had to go look at it. The kids were like "uh...that's not even that cool of a car." and I was like, "It's KITT!" to which they backed away and attempted to phone 911. Anyway, where was I?

I think my point to this portion of the post is that this show should be hilarious. The Bill Shatner of our generation should live up to his title, I think. Unlike The Shat though, I don't think he gets it. At least Shat knows he's a bad actor and plays that up. Maybe Hasselhoff does too. Again, I don't follow his career. I know back in his "Baywatch" days he was pretty serious about the whole thing.

I was also going to write about Bobby's Flay new show, "Throwdown" that has the tagline "Be careful when you answer your door because Bobby Flay may be on the other side...ready for a throwdown." However, I think I'll save that for later. Let me just say one thing, if Bobby was on the other side, I'd laugh so hard I'd probably die. I'd be ready for a throwdown all right! The commercial is hilarious. It's the best thing I've seen in a long time

We *Are* Still Alive

I was just talking to someone I know about Xanga and the other kiddie blogs. You know the ones, Livejournal, MySpace, etc. Ok, I admit that I have a LJ and I like the communities on LJ. That's not as bad as MySpace and Xanga I guess because most people seem adult. I don't go trolling for young boys on MySpace although if I did I'd probably find a dude my age claiming to be 14 so maybe I should...what was my point?! Oh yes, I remarked that I had a real blog and I didn't need a Xanga and then remembered I hadn't blogged in a LOONG time.

You know, this blog has been going on for five years now. I think we started out strong. There are some funny, quality posts from back then. LadyX and her jeans, Bard and his tangential wit (I still remember "Very Blendershoe Cellular), the Bobby Flay battles...the psychos who have plagued us. I dunno, I think we had the stuff!

Anyway, after five years sitting here begging for some more lovin' like the first year we had it, I think ID deserves to be loved some more. I always have something to complain about. Why not do it here?!

The point, there is none. I'll say I'll start posting again and then forget in a few days and ID will be all alone, but at least I said something. It's been a few months.
