Popspotting #140: â€œ2 Tank Girls of Interestâ€ (Sept. 30, 2011)
It’s a jam packed feedback show, from “Drive” to more soundtracks worthy of mention, including “Juno,” “Tank Girl,”Â “Friday Night Lights,” “Valley Girl,” “Next Stop Wonderland,”Â â€œJackie Brownâ€ and â€œGo.â€ Then we move over to the small screen for early takes on now shows, including “Ringer,” “Person of Interest,” and “New Girl. why should ivermectin be organic “

I thought it appropriate to close the loop on “2 Broke Girls” and “Ringer,” as you were gracious enough to mention my comments in today’s Friday Feedback podcast.
Unfortunately, “2 Broke Girls” did not deliver on the perceived promise of the last couple of minutes, and so I am out. Alan Sepinwall’s review pretty much sums up my feelings on the show:Â http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/whats-alan-watching/posts/2-broke-girls-and-the-break-up-scene-slumber-party.
Regarding “Ringer,” I found myself so bored in the middle of episode 2 that I didn’t even complete it. The acting throughout – even Sarah Michelle Gellar’s – is flat and wooden, the color palette is washed out and unappealing, and I simply have too many other series I’m interested in watching that mean more to me than does this show. “Ringer” is now dead to me. 🙂
Just wanted to thank you guys for giving my blog a shoutout in this episode. If you haven’t heard, that’s not the only HIFF event Giacchino will be participating in. Before the Super 8 screening, he’ll also be apart of a roundtable discussion with other composers. That’s at 1pm on Saturday, October 15 http://www.hiff.org/program/films/detail/behind_the_scenes_a_roundtable_2011. That roundtable is actually a free event.
Finally, about a week or two ago Jen mentioned that she was reading “Ready Player One.” The premise of the book intrigued me and I definitely want to read it. But, I found this blog post where someone created a soundtrack for the book by listing songs that are referenced in the book. Thought you might be interested:Â http://www.ernestcline.com/blog/2011/09/21/the-official-ready-player-one-soundtrack/
Thanks for including my comments on the soundtracks… and for correcting me on “Across 110th Street,” too. Â I can’t believe I forgot about that, especially since I do remember watching it at the old Varsity theater and staring at Pam Grier’s face as she lip-syncs the song. Great, great ending.Â
