For a dog that never talks he sure made an impression that has left lasting impressions and brought joy to many a generation. I watched him and read the comic strip. My children watched him and my grandchildren. Even if someone has never seen the cartoons they still know who snoopy is.

Pretty solid entertainment. I'm talking about the old show. I only saw one episode of the recent one, which was fairly good, too.

I wanted to talk about these poop drenched DC movies that keep coming out but no one likes them so there aren't any items about them.

Marvel comics have cool characters for the kids. They're a little street smart, a touch comedic and occasionally an "epic" story comes out showcasing them and building their hype.

DC comics are mostly about these archetypal, boring, Greek god type characters. Most of their "epic tales" fall flat in their mainstream titles. DC has dozens of 'alternate universe' versions of events, however. "The Dark Knight Returns", "Kingdom come", and really even "The Watchmen" are examples.

So what happened was Marvel based it's movie juggernaut on an alternate reality title called "The Ultimates" and DC based it's multi movie deal on... beer commercials and pro-wrestling apparently.

Aquaman and Wonder Woman were okay though, if a little boring.

What is there to say about Charlie Brown that hasn't already been said about Joe Camel?

He's a cartoon character aimed at children with the sole intent of getting them into a destructive lifestyle for someone else's monetary gain.

He looks like he was drawn by someone's offhand. While they were drunk. While offroading.

People often have to pretend that they think he's cool even though they don't get it at all.

He looks like a dick.

I give him only 2 stars for being memorable because he ain't no Snoopy.

EDIT: You CAN smoke a peanut after sex, however. Gets 'em to leave.

Charlie Brown just your average little guy with a dog who just wanted to get through life without all the problems.

I just remember one episode where Uncle J said if they want to see something scary, then just look at Joey's bank account.

I just realized my life is pretty parallel to George Costanza's. Well, at least I'm much better looking.

An excellent and fun to watch series with great characters like Jean and Captain Nemo. Nadia, though, could be a bitch at times. The very end was interesting, wait and see who is married at the end, it was a real surprise to me.

I give it five stars, but I have a love/hate relationship with this show. The first five seasons were great. Season One was just episodic enough to slowly immerse you in the world, but had enough serialization to show it was going somewhere. Season two built on that to a crescendo. Season three was a short run that played in the favor of the narrative. Season Four made all the stakes higher, made the world bigger, and gave fangirls everywhere Destiel. Season Five was the pinnacle of the narrative, the closing chapter, and the end was bittersweet. Then the problems started. While the first five season seemed to all be leading to a cohesive story, every season after that just seemed to flounder. The overarching narrative seemed to be almost hamfisted, the episodic parts seemed more like filler than ever before, and somewhere around the end of season eight I found myself just not caring anymore. There have been good characters, good episodes, but as a whole, it just didn't fit for me any more. So my honest opinion is if you haven't seen the show, binge watch the first five seasons, and leave it at that.

Grey's anatomy is honestly the best TV series I've ever watched. I currently own every single DVD season of the show. Although the seasons are pretty expensive to buy they are well worth the money. The show has many different topics that highlight real world problems we face. From dealing with Alex and his problems with his father being an abuser and the rough life Alex had to go through to get where he is, Izzy having to do modeling to pay for her college then dealing with the backlash of a patient seeing her photos and not wanting her to be his doctor because of the choices she made in her past, Callie realizing she is homosexual and has to deal with her family's disapproval, the list could go on and on. The show really touches on issues we face on an everyday basis. The show from day one has had a great story line and really each episode leaves you wanting more and.koe. it makes you feel like your actually watching people in real life rather than just on a TV show. The only complaint I have of course would be the fact that shonda r. Seems to either kill off or write in people leaving. we get so attached to the characters (Izzy, George, Burt, Christina, Derrick,etc) and then they go!..but I realize that's what makes the show go on, so that we can see where there life goes on from there (Owen losing Christina, Callie losing George, Christina losing Burt, etc) it shows us how those people go on with their lives and the obstacles they have to overcome. It actually has a way of helping us see how to deal with real life issues. now..the wait is on to see where Meredith goes from here without Derrick!

This is an Italian cartoon and it's not so bad, but probably better for kids. It's a little like an anime.

It's literally the smartest comedy on TV!

It's not just because it's about scientists but because it also incorporates a lot of science into the humor. In its own way, it's educational programming. What other sitcom features guest appearances from the rock stars of the scientific community like Stephen Hawking, Neil deGrasse Tyson, George Smoot, and Bill Nye? On top of that are the celebrity guest stars who appeared as themselves: James Earl Jones, Carrie Fisher, Summer Glau, Charlie Sheen, Wil Wheaton, Brent Spiner, and LeVar Burton, followed by other celebrity guest appearances (not playing themselves) like Bob Newhart, Laurie Metcalf, and Sara Gilbert.

There is Sheldon Cooper, a physicist who claims his IQ can't be measured; a gifted child who once sat down with a "man from the government" to be told why he couldn't have yellow cake uranium, who graduated college at 14, supposedly one of the most brilliant minds on the planet, yet absent common sense. He can fully explain string theory but can't recognize sarcasm. He knows everything there is to know about the universe but can't tell you who Radiohead is. He has a lot of personality quirks that makes him almost unbearable to be around even to his own roommate, Leonard Hofstadter, another physicist. Sheldon clashes with his mom, who is deeply religious and they get into it with the science vs. faith debates. Then there are his interactions with Penny, his next door neighbor (and later Leonard' fiance) over pop culture topics, which are pure gold.

His roommate, Leonard, was not a gifted child but is also very intelligent. Like Sheldon, childhood was rough as he was a nerd and targeted frequently by bullies and ignored by the girls. He's 100% nerd in every way; he likes science fiction shows, comic books, Indiana Jones, and video games however he wants something more and when he meets Penny, their new neighbor, he pursues her. His mother is a psychiatrist who is very stoic and critical of Leonard for not being as accomplished as his siblings.

Penny is a young blonde woman who moved to Los Angeles to become an actress and is working as a waitress in the meantime. She makes friends with Leonard and Sheldon and their other two friends, Howard Wolowitz and Raj Koothrapalli. Being only of normal average intelligence a lot of what the guys say goes right over her head but she baffles them just as easily with her knowledge of pop culture. A popular girl who dates lots of guys, she also, like Leonard, wants something better for herself. She grows tired of dating dumb jocks and meatheads and finally says "yes" to Leonard and they start a relationship which over the course of several seasons, moves into an engagement.

Howard and Raj are supporting characters in the show. Howard is an engineer who is also a Jewish stereotype in that he lives with his nagging mother (played by Carol Ann Susi; voice only). He fancies himself quite the ladies man however it turns out he can only get girlfriends when he becomes a sugar daddy (like he did when he starts dating Penny's cousin), or builds one himself (which he has stated repeatedly trying to do). In season 2, he gets a girlfriend by telling her that she could drive a car on Mars which they do, from a lab, however they accidentally crash it into a Martian ditch. He is often the target of Sheldon's jokes as Sheldon doesn't respect engineering, referring to engineers as the "oompa loompas of science". Raj, an astrophysicist,is from India and he is the son of wealthy parents and though he tries to pretend he grew up in poverty his friends know that his childhood was filled with comfort and privilege. In the first few seasons he is selectively mute, meaning that whenever a woman is around (like Penny) he is unable to speak out loud and instead has to whisper what he wants to say into Howard's ear. He and Howard are best friends and while they aren't gay they act like an old married couple at times.

In my opinion, the show got much better after the third season when two female characters were added. First, Bernadette Rostenkowski (a microbiologist) who eventually becomes Howard's wife; and second, Amy Farrah Fowler (a neurobiologist) who is basically a female version of Sheldon and later, his girlfriend.

As stated earlier, the show is very smart, but what makes a show truly great is character development and this show has a lot of that. The show has finished its eighth season so far and none of the characters are the same as they were in the pilot episode. I'm trying to find negative things to say about the show but nothing comes to mind. If I had to pick one thing, I suppose it would be the stereotype that geniuses are socially awkward introverts who can't make friends or attract women.

The Big Bang Theory is awesome. The comedy is consistent in every episode. Characters stay is character and are easy to like.

The love interests in the show are a little shaky though. In the beginning you met a group of nerds who were destined to be single and stay extremely smart. The obvious attraction Leonard has for Penny was necessary for the show to remain interesting. However A group of single nerds turned into a group of nerds in long lasting relationships. I think it took away from the overall concept a bit. I liked watching Raj not knowing how to talk to women, and how Sheldon was really self centered and bashed the idea of relationships. All of a sudden love was all over the show and it became all just about the next punch line. comedy. The chase for love a nerd has is part of what makes them nerds. If your a science teacher and your smart and have a girlfriend, your just a regular guy with a job and girlfriend.

The show is always entertaining. I can watch the episodes over and over again. But without the anticipation of a love interest about to take place, its just like your watching you and your friends making fun of each other on TV.

3.26 Stars Has its moments, but is under-whelming often enough to consider giving it my full attention a risk. But, last night something hijacked my attention and I watched the show til the end. And that one thing got all the judges' attention, as well. Ask Stark... what happened kept passing through my memory and I laughed, off and on, for a good hour.

The competition: Two sets of high profile brothers. Sluggers, who owned multiple restaurants and had made appearances on Iron Chef America. One of the brothers took Bobby Flay down on Iron Chef, so they were definitely NOT your run of the mill home cooks.

The Main Course basket: Steak, Cognac, Green Beans and (of course) Cinnamon Buns.

One of the brothers had his steak, cognac and beans going and, with the clock bearing down on him, he realized that he still had to deal with the cinnamon buns. So, he stood there, thinking of what he could do to re-purpose the odd ball item. He looks around and sees the puddle of blood that was left behind in the pan from the steak. He looks back at the cinnamon bun. I can swear that I actually saw the light bulb over his head. He grabs the pan and brings it over to the bun. The camera pans back to the judges, who go slack-jawed in horror, as if they were watching "Springtime for Hitler". The chef froze for a moment, as if he was waiting for the worm hole to the Bizzaro World of the Culinary Institute of Satan to open and, when it did, he drizzled the blood into the cinnamon bun and very matter-of-factly, proclaimed:

"This aught to make it more savory!"

When the dishes were placed in front the the judges, the reactions were priceless.

The first judge sat back, threw his arm over the back of the chair and stated, firmly, "I'm not eating that!"

The second judge flapped his napkin open and lowered it over his plate, declaring the victim deceased.

The third judge's chair was empty.

The camera returns to the chef. Lost for words, he said, with full confidence, "Maybe I should have saved that for the dessert round."

(For a more, uh, accurate version of this, it's Season 16, Episode 15)

I have recently become addicted to this show. There are some very interesting mystery baskets and to watch these chefs try and figure out meals is very exciting and interesting to watch.

It's running on one of the cable channels, and it is fun to watch. I didn't realize that it was on the air for over twenty years.
