Scrubs: I'm going through changes

Here is a rule of thumb regarding doctors that I have found very useful in the past: Never trust a doctor that wears more make up than you.
"My Changing Way - With their residencies over, there are big changes at Sacred Heart. J.D. moves out to live on his own, while Turk & Carla consider a family change."
No offence, but speaking about change, can I get another doctor, one that doesn't wear so much hair gel.

Scrubs (Season 4) - Sunday 11:45 pm on 8tv

The Practice makes perfect use of inconsistent program scheduling norm

Ahh... there is nothing I like more than watching reruns of the Practice. Well, there is just one thing. Is it just me? Or does everyone have this persistent urge to punch Dylan McDermott’s smug looking face into the ground?
"POOR RICHARDS ALMANA. Richard Bay prosecutes a murderer being defended by Bobby. The killer warns Richard that if that jury returns with a guilty verdict, Richard should fear for his life."
Becareful if you’re planning to watch this show again next week. For reasons only they know, ntv7 is airing next week’s episode on Sunday instead of Saturday. Nana Kaloloo is not pleased.

The Practice (Season 5) - Saturday 11:30 pm on ntv7

My very best FRIENDS

I know all of you have probably seen every single episode of Friends, but there is a reason why this show lasted 10 seasons. The girls stopped wearing bras.
"THE ONE WHERE THE STRIPPER CRIES. Joey appears as a celebrity contestant on "The $100,000 Pyramid," with its actual host, DONNY OSMOND (himself), but Joey's dubious IQ costs his partner the prize money. Meanwhile, Monica and Rachel hire an ungainly stripper, Roy (DANNY DeVITO - "Taxi"), without seeing him first, for Phoebe's bachelorette party. Also, Chandler and Ross attend a college reunion and meet an attractive woman they both promised not to date during school."

I liked Rachel better during the first few seasons, when she was a little bit more chunky. In the later seasons she looks like an over-tanned mop. A mop that I won't kick out of bed, but still.

Friends (Season 10) - Friday 10:45 pm on ntv7

Harith Iskandar gets a full hour

There won’t be a Wakenabeb! episode tonight, in it’s place is ‘Thursday Nite Live’ hosted by the other half of the A-ha team, Harith Iskandar. Hmm.. Never seen this show...
“Thursday Nite Live is a show that makes fun of people, of situation, of scenarios and of fun itself. It's a variety show that will inform and entertain with interview session, musical performance and tons of hilarity through spoofs, mockumentary and sketches”
The show that usually runs for half an hour, is running for a full hour tonight. Why? I don’t know. Maybe there is something special going on. As always, let me know.

Thursday Night Live -Thursday 8:30 pm on ntv7

Malcolm dates a dumb blonde

Nana Kaloloo once said, 'Be nice to the dumb girl while you are still young, for she might grow up hot and not sleep with you'.
"Secret Boyfriend. When Malcolm gets paired with a dimwitted beauty as his chemistry partner, he thinks it's a recipe for disaster, but when she reveals her feelings for him, sparks fly."
Being a secret boyfriend isn't all that bad. You get to have intimate knowledge of what your girlfriend keeps in her closet and under the bed.

Malcom In The Middle (Season 6) - Thursday 10:40 pm on ntv7

I'd rather it be orange than blue

I prefer the original CSI rather than this one partly because of the characters and partly because I like the orange tint in Las Vegas rather than the blue one they use on this show.
"Join the CSI:NY team once again on the trail of death in the Big Apple. With new labs and new faces, Season 2 means change, and this time CSIs themselves aren't spared."
I hate general synopsis like this... anyway, to find the repeats, use the Malaysian TV Search Tool.

CSI: NY(Season 2) - day 10:00 pm on Astro's AXN (Ch 17)

Paris and Nicole like younger men

Tonight, we will get to see our girls playing interns at a day care center. Nice. Two big brats taking care of a bunch of smaller ones. What could Paris and Nicole possibly have to teach that a normal and modestly educated 5 year old doesn't already know?

I guess there are certain skills that might prove allusive to a little person still struggling or only recently mastered competent or at least expectable motor coordination skills: 'How to use a credit card?', 'How to choose a thong?', Just to name a few.

The Simple Life (Season 3) - Tuesday 9:00 pm on 8tv

Tyra is my mommy

I think the idea of asking a female model who doesn't have kids of her own to help you with your teenage daughters won't be winning anybody any Nobel prizes anytime soon.
"Tyra, Help Me Talk To My Daughter Moms ask Tyra for help mending their relationships with their teen daughters, including a mom who thinks she's helping her daughter by telling her she's overweight. Plus, Dirty Love's Jenny McCarthy talks about the close relationship she has with her mother."
Other ideas that involve Tyra Banks (preferably in these clothes) are probably brilliant though.

Tyra Banks Show (Season 1) - Monday 11:15 pm on ntv7

Prison Break: I don't like my roommate

Are we expected to believe that pretty boy here can survive a week in prison without his ass going two way? Come on.. he's prettier than some girls I know.
"When Michael reveals his escape plan to Sucre, Sucre chooses to be no part of it, and requests a cell transfer. Michael gets a new cellmate called Haywire."
I like this episode, Haywire's creepy. If I hadn't made it clear before, then let it be clear now, watch this shit. It's really good. They even got a little eye candy for the ladies.

Prison Break (Season 1) - Monday 10:30 pm on 8tv

Don't know when your TV show is airing? The TV Man can help

Don’t you just get pissed off when you have no idea when one of your favorite TV shows is showing? When is the repeat and all that?

Now you don’t have to get pissed. Now you can just come here to malaysiantv.blogspot.com and type the title of your TV show on this cool search feature thingy and viola! The TV man will tell you all you need to know.

Although this feature is far from perfect, I can say it’s pretty good and easy to use.
There are some typos in the TV listing. But as always, that is not The TV man’s fault.

Search Your For Your Favorites TV Show Now!

Right know this feature will only search for programs airing on RTM 1, RTM 2, TV3, ntv7, 8tv, AXN, Discovery Channel, Discovery Travel and Living, STAR WORLD. But plans are underway to add more channels to the search. Don't say I never so anything.

'Sepet and Gubra' discussions and other fights

I have been really unfair in my coverage of TV channels. Been really neglecting the old skool RTM 1 and RTM 2. It’s not that I’m bias; it’s just that their TV listings are usually so shitty and non-descriptive I can’t weed out the cool stuff.

So today, seeing it was too hot for me to go skinny-dipping with the models, I stayed in and made a real effort to find a show that would be entertaining to watch on both these channels.

Anyway, they have this talk show called ‘Fenomena Seni’. They discuss things that are happening in the local Malaysian entertainment industry. Tomorrow’s title should be an interesting watch. “Sepet dan Gubra pencemar budaya” (Translation: Sepet and Gubra, tainting our (Asian) culture). Rosyam Nor is hosting it with a bunch of panels whose names I’ve never heard of.

Hey, I haven’t watched the movie, but judging from how everybody is gushing over these two flicks, this episode might be an interesting watch.

Mushy stuff tomorrow night, but earlier in the morning its testosterone time! At the ungodly hour of 4:50 am they are going to air the ‘World Heavyweight Championship’ LIVE! All the way from Germany!

How come there was no publicity for this? This is cool! F**k the Box Office channel!

I love boxing. I don’t know who’s fighting, but who cares, its real. Boxing is king, wrestling is for pussies.

Fenomena Seni - Sunday 9:30 pm on RTM 1
World Heavy Weight Championship - Sunday 4:50 am on RTM 2

UPDATE: As expected, this show generated much heated debate. Here are some:-

Nizam Zakaria - Adakah Sepet dan Gubra pencemar budaya?
The meesh experience - Sepet dan Gubra: Pencemar Budaya?
TV Smith - Gubra
Kakicucuklangit - FORUM: Pencemar Kepala Hotak
Attack of the SKYM! - ADA APA DENGAN SEPET & GUBRA?

These links and a few others can be found on Nizam Zakaria's site.

New Television Channel TV9

The all new TV9 will begin transmission at noon today with a show called ‘Interactive TV/Video’.

What kind of show is that? I haven’t the faintness. I’ve been trying to get the transmission for the last 15 minutes with no luck. I'll keep trying. Anyway, there is almost as much information here as there is on their site, TV9

I Hate My Job: Yet another reason to quit

Quit your job to pursue your dream? I’ll take one! Hell, I'll take two, and one more to go.
"Former presidential candidate Al Sharpton is the host of the reality series 'I Hate My Job', which follows three guys willing to abandon their careers for the chance to pursue their unfulfilled dreams. Each episode will feature Sharpton and psychologist Stephanie Raye (TLC's Date Patrol) offering guidance and weekly assignments to the men in pursuit of their dream jobs. They will also be part of a panel that determines whether the guys deserve to continue receiving their help."
I have never seen this show myself so if anybody has watched it or is going to watch it, any information would be good. Plus, what’s with this guy's hair?

I Hate My Job - Friday 11:45 pm on 8tv

NYPD Blue: All hail the fat balding man

This rugged bald ugly face is able to carry this show for over 11 seasons. I have a theory that people just like looking at fat, bald ugly men. I mean look at the guy next to him, I bet he can't even sell a pilot episode.
"Sipowicz and Clark re-open an eighteen-year-old murder case after DNA evidence exonerates the convicted man."
I think DNA analysis wasn't even invented when this show first aired. Another case in point: The Simpsons. Homer is still going strong with 16 seasons under his big fat belt. Fat ugly people rock. Yes I mean you.

NYPD Blue (Season 11) - day 10:00 pm on Astro's STAR WORLD (Ch 70)

Mythbusters: Airline toilet? Biscuits and bazookas?

Is it true that you cancel out the effects of prescribed antibiotics by taking it together with coconut juice? Can static from your cell phone cause an explosion at a petrol station if it were to ring? Are Scarlet Johanson’s boobs real?

You’ll get none of the answers to these questions tonight; instead tonight’s theme is all about cookies, bricks and projectiles.
“Find out if a person can get stuck to an airline toilet while it's in flight, and whether or not there is such a thing as a biscuit bazooka”
I don’t know what a biscuit bazooka is, but I really want to find out. And by the way, they're real. At least I really want them to be.

MythBusters (Season ?) - Thursday 9:00 pm on Astro's Dicovery Channel (Ch 50)

Wakenabeb: Fat bottomed girls gets Ruff (edge)

I don’t think it would be pleasant if a large big-boned woman I don’t know came up to me and tried to cop a feel. I would be traumatized and only slightly aroused.

Tonight on Wakenabeb, they are going to show a rerun of episode 2, where Syed Hussein (Ruffedge) is stalked by a fat lady at a restaurant.

Actually, this happened to me once, but it wasn’t a lady it was a man. And he wasn’t fat, and instead of stalking me, he gave me chase. It had something to do with me trying to steal his car. It’s a long story.

The TV Man is quite the CSI

I’m tired of the way TV listings are handle here. Have you noticed how hard it is to find the repeat of your favorite show on Astro? How difficult is it to keep track of which season of your favorite show is airing on TV? God help you if you can find a decent synopsis for a program.

In the weeks to come, The TV Man is aiming to help all of you TV addicts with all these grievances. But for now, I will have to make another guess on which CSI episode is showing tonight.

Lets see, 2 week ago they showed episode 8, so tonight they should be airing episode 10.
Still Life. The CSI's are called out to investigate the disappearance of a boy whose father died four years ago. Soon a couple is arrested at a convenience store with a boy matching the description of the missing kid. The only problem is they both claim it is their son. Both parents have exactly the same picture of the boy, with a scar on exactly the same place on his face. They hope a DNA-test could confirm who the real parents are, but when this information comes to light, it lead to another bizarre twist, possibly murder.”
Well, I’ll be making vigorous love with an armchair tonight, so I might miss this. Please let me know how my detective work turned out.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (Season 6) - Wednesday 10:00 pm on Astro's AXN (Ch 17)

Is there anyone in the HOUSE that can assist?

As usual, Astro’s website does not surrender much of what we’ll be seeing in their synopsis. So if anyone can help determine, which episode will be showing tonight, Dr. TV Man will be most grateful.
"House surrounds an irreverent doctor and his team of handpicked experts as they battle mysterious and strange illnesses, with the most controversial and unconventional methods!"
When I do get a chance to watch this show, I tend to like it. Just like life, House is harsh, pleasantly rude, hostile and really funny. Which is funny, for a drama.

House (Season 1) - Monday 10:00 pm on Astro's AXN (Ch 17)

Breaking out of prison brings about brotherly love

This show is really good. They showed the pilot last week, and hopefully tonight we'll get to see some real action. By the way, look at how intensely Micheal looks into his brother's left ear. Yup, he loves the guy.
"Allen. Michael seeks help of his fellow prison inhabitants to execute his escape plans."
Wonder if Mariah Carey minds.

Ballroom dancing is not just for football players


No prizes for guessing which of these three people scares me the most.

Every episode these guys will work with 3 average men and women and train them for six weeks to enter a dancing competition with professional judges and all. In this week’s episode:
"The Artist, The Old Dog And The Football Player. In this week's episode, the instructors train three regular people in the art of the Jive. The contestants have five weeks to master their steps and perform in front of a live audience and real judges in a national dance competition!"
I tried to get into ballroom dancing once, but the trainer wouldn't take me in because I was too macho.

I'm LOST at which episode?

The synopsis below is an intelligent guess of which episode is showing tonight. Since the info on Astro's site was not much help.
"Collision (a.k.a. Old Habits). Violence erupts when Ana Lucia and her group stumble upon Sayid and the other castaways on the island. Ana Lucia holds Sayid captive. Kate and Jack care for Sawyer when Mr. Eko brings him back to the camp himself. Flashbacks reveal Ana Lucia's troubled life as a cop after suffering a fatal blow from a former suspect she trusted in a crime scene. Lastly, one by one the tailies reach the rest of the camp."
Kate's a girl who can still look hot even though she’ll all dirty and smelly looking. The only other thing that can do that is my cat smoky. Grr...

Lost (Season 2 -Episode ?) - day 9:00 pm on Astro's AXN (Ch 17)

Mythbusters: Jet Assisted Chevy

Today’s show will be full of beefy, fast cars and sweet hard candy. Yes boys and girls, there is something for everyone in the mad 'scientist's castle tonight.
"Can a '67 Chevy turn into a 350mph road warrior? Are Pop Rocks candy and soda a recipe for disaster? Join Jamie and Adam as they put urban legends to the test."
I don’t know Jamie, can an old chevy GO that fast? Adam, are sweets bad for your teeth? Please do tell me.

You can count on Revenge!

Revenge is sweet, and so is this movie. With a hot looking hero and a heroine I wouldn't kick out of bed; this is the show to watch if you 're at home on this Friday night for whatever reason.
"A young man, falsely imprisoned by his jealous "friends," escapes and uses a hidden treasure to exact his revenge"
Psst.. Loser..

The count of Monte Cristo (2002) - Friday 10:00 pm on tv3

They are still showing Survivor? Panama you say?

I used to be such a Survivor addict... it was the highlight of my week (Now the highlight of my week is naked Saturdays at Leen’s). So I was surprised that I didn’t notice they had this new season out - Survivor Panama: Exile.
“The castaways of Survivor: Panama--Exile Island will be divided into four tribes of four: Older Women, Younger Women, Older Men, and Younger Men. The season's first episode will involve a Reward Challenge, after which the losing tribe must banish one of its members to the nearby "Exile Island," where he or she will endure some enforced solitude until the next Immunity Challenge. That unlucky individual will, however, enjoy the not-so-small comfort of having the first opportunity to search for the hidden Immunity Idol”
Wow! This sounds like an interesting new format. Too bad I’ve already missed about 7 episodes. Thats the problem with having a life, you miss all kinds of good stuff on TV.

And the girl's name is Danielle. Nice.

Survivor Panama: Exile (Season ?) - Friday 11:15 pm on ntv7

Charlie’s Angels can go on, up to four hours

If you find yourself alone on a Friday night, there is a chance that you are what we call around here a loser. Luckily for you there are half naked hotties jumping and bouncing around tonight on the telly for you to watch.

Charlie’s Angels. Fight crime with three beautiful female detectives & their manager, Bosley - under the watchful eye of their mysterious employer, Charlie.”

Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. Sequel to the highly successful 2000 movie blockbuster, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu reunite to go undercover using their expertise as masters of disguise.”

Personally, I watch this series for its intricate plot and carefully woven storyline; not to mention it’s beautifully crafted script. All of the three fine actress gave very strong performances and was all robbed when none of them was even nominated for an Oscar.

Four hours of this? That a lot of tissues…

Charlie's Angels (2000)- Friday 9:00 pm on Astro's AXN ( Ch 17)

Wakenabeb: Marsha AF 3

The Setup: Convince Marsha one of the cast members is possessed – by one of her own (Marsha's) ancestors!

'Uncle' pretends to be hosting a special episode of SEEKERS. He interviews a participant of the show and later Marsha (who was invited as a celebrity guest) to talk to about their paranormal experiences. The talent (who was in on it) later pretends to be possessed by one of Marsha’s ancestors.

I don’t want to give too much away, but at one point she got so freaked out she starts dancing on command…

Grey's Anatomy: Doctors are human too

Slacking on the job I see. So this is what doctors do, melepak behind the office while eating ice cream and idly biting their nails... Where is the tension? Where is the drama?
"The First Cut Is the Deepest. A young woman is viciously attacked and Meredith thinks a newborn might be in danger."
Catch this new show while it's still hot on Malaysian TV. Trust me, it's the new ER.

Grey's Anatomy (Season 1 - Episode 2) - Wednesday 9:00 pm on Astro's STAR WORLD (Ch 70)

American Idol is the Queen of my heart

It'll be interesting to see how the American Idol contestants will do with Queen. I really feel sorry for them. How can anyone compare to Freddie Mercury? It's like being asked to hop on one leg and crow like a chicken, you can't help but look like a fool.
"Tonight, we turn to the iconic music of QUEEN. Don’t miss a note of what will surely be a legendary night, tonight 8/7c. Then come back for the *1-hour results show, at a special time, tomorrow 8:30/7:30c, which will also feature the Top 8 performing a song by QUEEN."
Just like Mariah Carey, Freddie has a talent for making his song sound deceptively easy to deliver. And people who try to sing their songs, do so at their own peril. I predict Bucky will choke, Elliot to struggle with more that just a few notes and Ace to have to sing the whole thing in falsetto just to get thru.

Tonight, for obvious reasons it'll be nice to see Katharine sing 'Fat Bottomed Girls'. Yummy.

Desperate women should marry orphans

Here is a quick test to see if your mother-in-law likes you. If she tries to frame you for the murder of your own husband, the chances are she's not a fan. I mean, does this look like a woman that would kill her husband? Actually, she does...
"You'll Never Get Away From Me. Bree's mother-in-law, Phyllis gets her in trouble with the law, Susan tries bravely to accept Edie's new role in Julie's life, Lynette's demanding boss makes her miss Parker's first day of kindergarten. Bree later on takes a polygraph test to prove her innocence in Rex''s death and realizes she has feelings for George. Gabrielle finally comes to the truth about Carlos and John after seeing John with another woman. Also, Gabrielle has a new gardener, Ralph (who has just start mowing her lawn. Both are flirtatious, although Gabrielle holds back by trying to keep him out of the house and to just work."
Watching this show makes you not want to get married. You'll start thinking it'll be more fun to have affairs with Bala the grass cutter and other peoples wives instead.

Hot model interviews other hot models

Sure Janice looks like a plastic old hag now, but once upon a time, she was a REALLY hot babe. The outs judge will make an appearance in tonight's show along with some of the 'America's Top Model' winners.
"'America 's Next Top Model' Reunion. Tyra checks in with your favorite "America 's Next Top Model" characters. Catch up on winner Eva's career, talk body image with Tocarra and watch her surprise a stunned fan, find out what Tyra's done for Tiffany since their televised blow-out, and find out what former judge Janice Dickinson has to say to Tyra!"
When you are young and beautiful, you can be as bitchy and as difficult as you want, people will just sit there and take all your crap. But wait awhile, people are less forgiving when it comes to a bitchy old bag of bones with an 'attitude'. Poor Janice.

Mariah Carey's toyboy breaks out of prison

I've been waiting a long time for this show to come down here. If this face looks familiar, it's because this guy's been in two of Mariah's recent music videos.
"This drama focuses on a prison designer who gets himself thrown into one of his own prisons to help his falsely accused brother escape death row. Described as in the vein of The Great Escape, the series will unfold over 22 episodes, charting the course of a single break."

"Ivy League to Big League. Lesley aims to transform herself from high school geek to super glamorous cheerleader. Can she fake it in front of a panel of experts?"
A smart educated young lady wants to fake it as a bimbo airhead. This should be interesting.

Larry King is examining Trump's hair, apparently to see if it’s real. Oh it’s real. A good toupee would look much better than that thing on his head.
“The eighteen new candidates of the hit reality series meet their fierce, hand-picked competition and discover their teammates at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey. The rigorous job interview begins with a bang as the new corporations, split on gender lines - Team Excel made up of all men and Capital Edge made up of all women, deal with the billion-dollar fitness business by creating a new class at Bally's Total Fitness Centers.”
I mean who the hell is this guy kidding? It’s a combover! I guess when you’re that rich, nobody will tell you if you look like a damned fool.

Robert Deniro doesn't need to be funny

I don't know why Robert Deniro has been acting in mostly comedies lately. I mean his comedic timing is good and he pulls it off well and all but I miss the other side of him. The side that scares my balls up into my throat.
"A spoof of buddy cop movies where two very different cops are forced to team up on a new reality based T.V. cop show"

You CAN buy extremely pretty

Armed with a bunch of stylists, makeup, scalpels and whole lot of money, Extreme Makeover aims to make ugly peoples lives fuller and more meaningful.

"Who among us hasn't wanted to change something about ourselves? Lucky participants are given the chance to go from the proverbial ugly duckling to beautiful swan in this new series."

I don’t like making fun of butt ugly people. So I won’t.

I got ‘Wakenabeb’ed!

I chanced upon this title while scanning thru today’s TV listings. Thinking Wakenabeb was a Japanese war drama, I sought to immediately investigated.

Instead, I found out that the show was going to be very reminisce of the still popular hit TV Show Punk’d. READ: Ripoff. However, the show is hosted by the guy who played the sultan in the movie Puteri Gunung Ledang. I think that in itself should give this show worth a look.
“Adlin Aman Ramli heads this hidden camera scam where we catch the celebrity off guard and we "kenakan" them!”
For the benefit of those whose Malay is a little rusty-

Wakenabeb! -> Wa Kena Beb!
Wa Kena Beb -> Gua Kena Beb!
Gua Kena Baby -> Saya sudah tekena (dengan perbuatan awak)!


Which can be loosely translated to mean - 'You got me!'. Everybody gets it? Carry on.

CSI: Kiss and make up

After kissing and making up, the gang gets to once again cut up dead people and mess around other people’s houses . Like one big happy, sick family.

“Las Vegas' coolest forensic experts are back! The two CSI teams are brought back together under Grissom's leadership to solve a series of baffling and grisly deaths.”
Grisham’s gay right?

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (Season 6) 10:00 pm on Astro’s AXN (Ch 17)

UPDATE: They showed Episode 8 (A Bullet Runs Through It -Part 2). As you know, the TV guides are usually less than descriptive in their synopsis, so I try the best I can.

Your favorite American Idol - Kenny Rogers

Although I find Katharine McPhee really hot; she’s got the voice, the looks and all (plus she's always showing off her boobs, and I appreciate that), my gut tells me she's not going to be the next American Idol. Which is fine by me, someone has to do the dishes around here.

Tonight they're going to go country, and tomorrow, Kenny Rogers will be performing. I don't know too many of Kenny's tunes so if they sing one tonight, I think I will be able to judge the performance without having to compare it to the original. Unless of course someone sings 'Lady', or something about a roasted chicken.

American Chopper - Once upon a time...

The Teutels are the meanest, baddest and most disfunctional 'real' family television has to offer. Today were going to see how they got that way.
"History of the OCC. See the history of the Teutels for the first time ever. Learn about the origins of O.C. Ironworks and how it expanded to OCC, and beyond. Hear first account stories of Paul Sr., the father and their family life. All this and more on this special episode of American Chopper."

Sydney Bristow has no problems taking passport photos

Don't you wish you can just roll out of bed, snap a photo, and look incredible like Miss Garner? Go back to bed, you're still dreaming.
"Expect a roller-coaster of shocks and intrigues as Alias returns for another sensational season. Sydney must come to grips with new twists as she battles the bad guys!"
Due to the highly discriptive nature of this synopsis, I am unable to comment on the contents of tonight's show. I will however be watching it this evening while trying to figure out how hot a woman has to be for you to look past such a huge forehead.

Jackie Chan is a policeman who knows kung fu

Mr. Chan, I would advise you to put your clothes back on this instant. This is not how we do thing around here.

You know why Jackie Chan never knew he was way to ugly to be a superstar and became one anyway? It's because no one had the balls to tell him that to his face. And when he went on to cutting albums although he can't sing for nuts...

No one had the minerals to tell him he couldn't do that either.

"Jackie Chan's one-man war on a criminal gang has earned him a reprimand and a demotion from detective to traffic cop, not to mention continual harassment by the gang. "
What he can do, and do very well however, is kick some major ass.

Monk's married?

If you have never seen the show Monk, it’s what you get when you mesh Hercule Poirot and Jack Nicholson's character in that movie ‘As Good as it Gets’.

Incidently, if your girlfriend fakes her own death and not let you in on it, I think it’s safe to say that the relationship's in trouble.
“Monk must get to the truth when it appears that his late wife Trudy is still alive.”

Fat people with something to loose

When I first heard the title, 'The Biggest Loser', I thought the obvious. This is a dating reality show where a hot babe would get to pick from a bunch of fat losers. Instead this show is about a bunch of fat people competing to loose weight.
"Contestants use medically approved weight-loss techniques to shed pounds and try to win a $250,000 prize."
I like my show better.
