Filed under: tv, wga strike

Because of the WGA strike, I’ve resorted to mining Food Network, TLC and Bravo for reality tv shows in order to fill my new-tv void. I really should stop and watch Lost season 3 before it finally begins at the end of the month…

– A long, but good interview with P.T. Anderson on AV Club 

Ain’t It Cool has the first look at Steven Soderbergh’s The Argentine and Guerilla, both about Che Guevara (though photos are of the movie’s Castro) and set for 2008 (via Slashfilm)

Top ten movie posters for 2007; Slashfilm’s response

– Showtime’s awesome series Dexter will re-air its first season (albeit heavily edited) on CBS as a WGA-strike replacement starting February 17

– Actors won’t cross the picket line for the Golden Globes this Sunday

News on Michael Showalter’s Night of the Living Dorks, which is “Revenge of the Nerds meets Shaun of the Dead” (via Pop Candy)

– And finally, 5 things you didn’t know about Seinfeld, though I knew about the last one (via Pop Candy)

OMG. Thank God Rosie O’Donnell or Megan Mullally wasn’t cast as Elaine.

Why do you love Che Guevara so much?

Would it be worth buying Season 1 of Dexter to see the unedited version, or will it be as good on CBS?

Can’t wait to see There Will Be Blood!

Personally, I would want to see a show as it was intended. However, if you end up only watching Dexter on CBS, all you might miss is some extra blood (though its never that graphic) and maybe some nudity here and there.

Each Dexter is around 53 minutes (with a “previously on” and opening credits that lasts at least 3 minutes) whereas a normal 1 hour show on network tv is 43.

Also, I’m not in college anymore so I don’t “love Che Guevara so much” but college-Tommy would have gone bananas over the thought of a Soderbergh-directed Che movie.

Also, forgot about all the cussing on Dexter, especially by his sister. There will be a lot of bleeps or overdubs.
