CNBC’s “The Profit” Episode 315 Review

This week, “The Profit” went the way it usually does… Some dude started crying and then Marcus needed to psychoanalyze him.

This week, “The Profit” went the way it usually does… Some dude started crying and then Marcus needed to psychoanalyze him.

Granted, as a video editor (who has nothing to do with this show), I’m fully aware that people can be made to look crazy by how you arrange the footage. 😀 .. At one point in this episode, someone was speaking to Marcus, but when the camera cuts to where Marcus is supposed to be listening, his mouth is moving and we can’t hear him saying anything at all, so that was clearly some footage they just threw in there for effect.

Having said that, you could tell there was something wrong with the dude from how his business was being improperly run and what his actions were and were not when Marcus told him how to do things the right way. Continue reading “CNBC’s “The Profit” Episode 315 Review”

CNN Presents “Black In America: Silicon Valley”

CNN aired “Black In America: Silicon Valley” last night. It was actually more interesting than I thought it would be. I would have done the show differently, but I’m me and CNN’s producers aren’t.

Disclosure: I’ll watch *ANYTHING* with Angela Benton in it! >:P~~~

Yum, Yum, Yum, and a Liverwurst A La Mode!!! >:D

So I was gonna watch this show regardless of what happened in it.

I had no idea what the NewME Accelerator was before just now. Continue reading “CNN Presents “Black In America: Silicon Valley””

“Jersey Shore” Italy: Walk Like A Duck

Jersey Shore” was complete garbage this week.

As I predicted, when I found out that MTV was sending a bunch of non-Itaian-speaking people to Italy for no reason other than their chosen social subculture has been stereotypically attributed to Italian-AMERICANS (having nothing at all to do with Italians in Italy), they can’t socialize with anyone but themselves, so the shows are entirely about the boring, redundant interactions between the housemates.

“Jersey Shore” Italy: Double Header

They aired two episodes of Jersey Shore this week, so there’s a lot to cover today.

If I miss anything or you want to discuss a particular topic, leave a comment below or find the thread on Facebook or Google+.

Virgins Are Useful

We ended last episode with the Jersey Shore housemates bagging a couple of chicks… To be specific.. The one chick that Mike’s been able to pull since he’s been in Italy, this American chick (of all people to meet in Italy), just so happens to have a twin sister. Mike had had plans of hooking up with the both of them until Deena pulled the robbery on him and started making out with the extra twin.

Before this happened, the extra twin had announced that she’s a virgin, which we all know means absolutely nothing, because nobody’s going to take your word for something like that. We just go “yeah, yeah, yeah” and then see what happens when we get back to the crib. Continue reading ““Jersey Shore” Italy: Double Header”

“Jersey Shore” Italy: Twinning [Part 02 of 02]

Continued from “Jersey Shore” Italy: Twinning [Part 01 of 02]


As the sole Italian-speaker in the house, I was expecting more production from Vinny. He’s been striking out like a pitcher without a pinch-hitter ever since this season began (according to the edit).

I have to get ahead of the story to say that his only relevant storylines this week had to do with Deena.

Deena got this Italian guy she had met at a restaurant to come home with her after partying at the club.

Instead of taking him to the designated room where the housemates are supposed to take their guests to have sex with them, she decides to start making out with the dude on her bed, which is in the room she shares with Pauly and Vinny.

Vinny starts rightfully complaining that she should take the dude to the sex room, and instead of doing that, Deena leaves her guest in the bedroom to come argue with Vinny. Continue reading ““Jersey Shore” Italy: Twinning [Part 02 of 02]”

“Jersey Shore” Italy: Twinning [Part 01 of 02]

Episode 3 of “Jersey Shore”: Italy actually had a lot to discuss. We’re gonna do this in two parts, this week:

Ronnie & Sammi

Like I said.. Sammi has no existence on the show other than to be all up under Ronnie. As soon as she found out he was about to start trying to bring girls to the house, she amped up her full-court press, and you could see Ronnie starting to fold last week.

As I predicted would eventually happen, Ronnie sold out *AGAIN*, and he and Sammi are back together as a couple.

I’m disgusted, but it makes perfect sense. Ronnie went for the guaranteed lay, every night of his vacation in Italy. Continue reading ““Jersey Shore” Italy: Twinning [Part 01 of 02]”

“Jersey Shore” Italy, Episode 02

“Jersey Shore” went pretty much as I suspected, this week.

MVP/D - Jersey Shore


They started out with Pauly kissing Deena, about which I said last week:

“This season, it looks like Deena’s sweating Pauly. At the end of this premiere Italy episode, she starts feebly making out with him at the club, and Pauly looks like.. Well… Pauly DOESN’T look like he’s really very interested in kissing her.

I would say that Pauly’s look fluctuated between being embarrassed that he was being filmed tonguing Deena down on camera, and looking like he felt like he was licking a used fire hydrant.”

Jersey Shore Italy Season Predictions

GFF: Grenade-Free FoundationJersey Shore was filmed in Italy this season.

Of course, this doesn’t make any sense, because a) three of them aren’t even Italian, and b) none of them except for Vinny actually SPEAKS Italian.

It also doesn’t make any sense, because just like they didn’t get any play in Miami, because no chicks are checkin’ for their style down there, no chicks are looking for spray-tanned Americans in Italy. Continue reading “Jersey Shore Italy Season Predictions”

Why “Jersey Shore” SUCKED This Season

I’ve been writing my critique/roundup/recap series about MTV’s television show “Jersey Shore” for quite some time now.

If you’ve been following along, you’re aware that I’ve been complaining (as has everyone else that I know that watches the show) about how it’s been getting worse and worse.

The storylines suck (yes, there are WRITERS on “reality” shows. They’re responsible for deciding which footage gets aired, creatively crafting a character, by, for instance, showing every instance they can that make him or her look like a stone-cold IDIOT and deleting all the evidence that this person is actually very smart, but just does stupid things once in a while). The content sucks. What they choose to focus on sucks. What they choose NOT to focus on sucks.

I’ve also been trying to figure out WHY Jersey Shore has been so worthless recently. Continue reading “Why “Jersey Shore” SUCKED This Season”

Jersey Shore S03 E09 [Part 01]

Just like I suspected, this week’s episode of Jersey Shore SUUUUUUUUCKED! 😀

They should have called this one “Cutting Room Floor”. I saw so much footage that should never have made it to television. It’s obvious that they’re just using filler content to stretch the length of this season. Shows left and right are having their season finales and Jersey Shore just goes on and on. o_O

This episode demonstrates why I had predicted during the Miami season that season 03, where they return to the ACTUAL Jersey Shore, should be the last one in the series and they should put it to rest after this. There’s no more storyline. Nothing new’s going to happen. Continue reading “Jersey Shore S03 E09 [Part 01]”
