MTV show “shore” fire win with fist pumps

Remember when MTV aired shows that didn’t render its acronym a complete misnomer? If you, like me, were still in diapers when the “Real World’s” first season rocked the world of television, my guess is that you can’t. But today, what the network lacks in substance it compensates for with its remarkable ability to repackage the utterly talentless among us as entertainment. The ratings ploy of the season is the show that everyone loves to make fun of: Of course I’m referring to our orange-and-proud friends on “The Jersey Shore.”

The 67th Golden Globes awards

Although the 67th Golden Globes awards aired last Sunday, people are still ranting and raving about them. The Globes, most known for setting the bar for the Oscars, are unique because they not only honor both movies and television, but also differentiate between comedy/musical and drama genres. They are supposed to be known as the most fun and spontaneous awards show for the simple fact that attendees sit at circular tables and wine and dine throughout the ceremony. It's not unheard of for some of the later winners to trip up the stage and slur through their acceptance speeches. This year was no exception. Let's go back, yearbook style, and check out some superlatives of the night.

Derrick Comedy's 'Mystery Team' guarantees laughs

"Mystery Team" is the story of three high school virgins stuck as their 7-year-old Encyclopedia Brown-type personalities. Kind of like my life, but with actual cases to solve and not just wishful thinking. The three friends ride matching bikes and harass 6-year-olds. In fact, they get in trouble for forcefully removing a kid from the playground and teaching him a lesson about putting his fingers in things.

Watchmen intrigues, compels

I must confess, I have never read "Watchmen." So I can't speak of the movie's faithfulness to "the most celebrated graphic novel of all time." But I can tell you that one of the most anticipated movies of this year delivered on its big blockbuster promise.
