Star Departure

Standard

It’s always interesting when a star of a highly rated show leaves. Anytime in any occupation you can have some job security take advantage of it. Of course these roles are played by real people who have lives to lead and people can get burned out.

However you see soap opera stars playing their roles for over 30 years and they are still going. Perhaps they know something about longevity. 

There are some high profile exits such as Matt Smith of Doctor Who, Cote de Pablo of NCIS and many others who have heeded the call of other opportunities. 

Many people have invested their hearts and souls into these characters. They live their lives vicariously through these people who do things extraordinary. To me its OK to mourn, its a loss and some folks take it hard. Exits if done right can soothe the sting of a actors departure. If an actor is killed off violently the show risks losing that fan. It will be interesting to see how characters are resolved down the road. 

Warm and Fuzzy Entertainment

Standard

We need more light-hearted fare on TV and in the movies. So much is about gruesome death and end of the world stories. I want to go to a movie, be carried away and not walk away feeling depressed. Hope, love and beauty can be expressed in a intelligent way. Maybe I am getting old and pining for better days. I am a man and a lot of the sci-fi and war movies do nothing for me. Change is a good thing, what do you think?

This is a great article in my hometown newspaper talking about the upcoming TV season. There are lots of favorite returning shows with some new offerings. Get your DVR’s and popcorn ready. Its going to be interesting to see what lasts, what gets canceled first and what creates the most buzz.

Vintage Home Entertainment at its Finest. Most people remember when televisions were functional furniture. I love the whole look here with the TV and the stereo system in one cabinet. Pretty sure there is a turntable in there somewhere. The big speakers could provide a room filling sound that would keep people entertained for hours.

Yesterday I was helping my dad install a TV in their RV and it did pretty much everything this unit did except it had a bigger screen and was only 2 inches wide. It’s amazing how technology has changed.
