Blah #1: I did a post on black actors we need to see more often. Well, it is apparent to me that some television executives saw my list because two of those actors on the list now have major roles. Thief, stars Andre Braugher as Nick Atwater, a professional thief out to steal $40 million in covert drug money. It is a very tense show and worth series recording on my DVR.
Next up we have Dennis Haysbert. Fans of 24 better know him as President David Palmer. Dennis heads a new show called The Unit. So far, it's kind of lame. I'm not sure why their family gets so much play. Like we really give a damn that one of the wives is having a hard time getting a class at the local community college.... or that Jonas Blane's (Dennis Haysbert) daughter is having a hard time in school. They need to take a page out of 24's playbook and focus on murder, mayhem and misdirection. The higher the body count, the higher the ratings.
Blah #2: We're taking mini-mom on a Easter Egg hunt tomorrow. I wasn't there last year and Jaimie says Stella got a little shy and let the big kids get in front of her. Well, this year will be different. One, she's the big kid and two, she has me as a coach. By the time I'm done with her she'll be a monster out there.
Blah #3: Whatever happened to the round, steel garbage cans. I remember the days when it took two guys to lift the can and dump it in the back of the truck. Then right around spring my uncle would grab a drum and make a barbecue grill out one. Those were the days.
Blah #4: The season finale of Black. White. was anti-climatic. It was a decent show and I thought the young white girl really got the best out of the experiment. Not only was she thrust into black culture, but she was thrust into the world of black artistry. A place where the black experience is expressed in its rawest form. But she was a trooper and stuck with it. Bruno is either a racist or the naive white guy I've ever seen. The young brother, Nick, just needs some time. As for the black couple, I like the fact that they spoke their minds but sometimes they were off the mark. And the white woman: naive, sensitive and a bit crazy - but she was nice.
Overall, an interesting show.
The weekend: We made it through another week folks. So go out and enjoy the weather and the kids. Happy Easter!!!!
