In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

movies about Hollywood

I find that I love movies about Hollywood-I just love the entire creative process from start to finish and I like to know about the wheeling and dealing just as much as I like to watch and analyze movies. Even movies about actors and actresses hold my attention. I guess it is the frustrated creative genius in me. OK, "genius" is taking it a bit far. I am like Salieri-blessed with the desire to come up with ideas and stories and camera shots and what not, but the actual execution of them...

I like Facebook, but I hate it. I like to see different, interesting things and people, and it is nice to be in touch with some people.

I hate it because I see how much more interesting, fulfilling and downright fun people's lives are compared to mine. I see status updates from all those wild, partying 20-somethings who are well, wild and partying. I am 41, but I never did any wild partying in my youth. Why? I was shunned, for the most part. I was excluded from all the groups in the...

"Hello, Brandon!"

"Oh, hello Mr. Silverman. How are you today?"

I'm cheerful as hell, Brandon. Because I've done it! I have really, finally done it!!!"

"Done what, Mr. Silverman?"

"Whattaya mean, done what? Don't play dumb, you were in all the pitch meetings! I have found the answer to that god damn Love Boat, that is what I have done!"

"Oh, yeah, Mr. Silverman. Well, about that...

Tune In to Turn-On...on second thought, don't

There are some more legendarily awful moments in Hofstede's book of bad TV. Some are well known, others famous only to geeks such as myself. There is one particular event that has gone down as such a bad program that I am surprised that he ranked it only number 25 on his list. I have seen others rank it as one of the most wretched moments in TV history.

"Tune in...turn on...drop out." Timothy Leary's famous phrase personified the counter-culture of the 1960's-a signal to...

The Best of Bad TV

One of my favorite books is one titled What Were They Thinking? The 100 Dumbest Events in Television History by David Hofstede, written in 2004. The book ranks (in his own order) the 100 worst moments on television. I find books with lists (100 Best, 20 worst, etc) like potato chips-there is no reason for them to exist, but one you start in on them, you can't stop. The book is addictive, at some points laugh-out-loud funny. I like a lot of the stuff he wrote, but disagree with his rankings. Just...
