I’m 20 minutes into NBC’s new Merlin series, and WOW have they taken some strange liberties with the story. I’m trying to get past it. The story is the teller’s to tell, and if they want to mix it up, that could be interesting. Still, if you’re going to scramble the mythology that much, why […]
Man, after reading about how 30 ROCK is a rip-off of THE MUPPET SHOW!, I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to see the show the same way again. http://bloglynch.blogspot.com/2009/06/30-rock-is-rip-off-of-muppet-show.html
