Doesn't anyone else find it odd when they air a show and the DVD comes out a week later?

It's happening with Once Upon A Mattress, too - but it only happens on RARE, RARE occasions.  It completely precludes the show involved from having any sort of rerun life, so it makes you wonder what the network is thinking or if they simply feel that they'll get some Christmas bucks.  But, if it's some huge movie that they are throwing a lot of money and promotion at, then the DVD tends to come out in a regular time frame - three to six months later, so that they get their reruns out of the show.

Who knows WHAT they're thinking?

I found THE FIVE PENNIES in my monthly Critics Choice Video catalog that I received today, and it is listed for preorder on Amazon!  Also available for less than ten bucks at DDD.

PENNIES is #3281 in DVD sales and MATTRESS isn't much higher at #3142.  Presales aren't exactly booming!

DR Jason has reminded me of another role I would like:  Voltaire/Pangloss/etc in CANDIDE.

I read in the paper last night about a high school in Cherry Hill NJ that is putting on ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST. They are doing it with two different casts:  on is the show as it is traditionally played, and the other in which the characters' genders are switched.  Dale Wasserman actually gave the school's drama teacher permission to do such a production and was open to help out with any questions the teacher and his cast had.  This was a nice change of pace from the story of the high school that was doing GREASE that was closed down by Samuel French just because the show was cast with all girls (who played the male roles as males.)

I just realized that my post on TOD never made it.  Fortunately, I happen to save it in wordpad.

TOD:

Without a doubt, my favorite musical role would be Sweeney Todd.  He gets some of the best numbers Sondheim has ever written and has a mad scene, to boot.  There are a number of things I would like to try in the part that I have yet to see any other performer do.

Other roles would be Max Bialystock, The Leading Player in PIPPIN, Pseudolus, Prof. Harold Hill, John Adams, Ben Stone, Oscar Jaffee, The Baker from INTO THE WOODS, Chuck Baxter, Phineus T. Barnum, Ozzie in ON THE TOWN, and Edna Turnblad.

As for plays, Kenneth Talley in FIFTH OF JULY, Randle P. McMurphy, Elwood P. Dowd, Salieri in AMADEUS, Big Daddy, Hickey in THE ICEMAN COMMETH, Oscar Madison or Felix Unger, and, of course, Hamlet.

Help!

In the new CC Video catalog, there is a NEW letter added to the description.  Some of the videos have an "a" after the screen ratio numbers:

The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit  [DVD: 2.35:1a/Surround/....]  Does this stand for "aspect ratio?"

The CC & DDD customer service operators used to get confused sometimes and answer with the "other" company's name from time to time.  :)  One of them finally confessed to me one day.  Notice that their shipping labels and invoices are absolutely identical with the exception of the company name and logo.

Here is a better picture of it...it's about 18 inches long...and you put your feet on those treaded sections and try to wibble walk around.  It was great fun...until your hamstrings started singing.

SPOILERS FROM LAST NIGHT'S MEDIUM.



MEDIUM spoiler - - - -












DR Jennifer, what that husband was was more than creepy. He was a CREEP! a MURDERER! and worst of all, he dishonored his wife's name when HE was the guilty party. He looked on it as his WIFE's fault that he was drunk because it was her birthday.

What kind of chauvanistic, lop-sided thinking is that? HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED. I found the ending VERY satisfying.

Yes he was a creep.  I don't know if I would call him a murderer since it was an accident when he ran over the girl. And he did not shoot his wife (although he did not call 911 either).  I don't know if he thought it was his wife's fault that he was drunk that night.  But he definitely wanted to shut her up about what she knew.

Allison looked quite unhappy when she realized what the wife did.  I would be curious to know if others were satisfied with the ending. Perhaps it depends on whether you think people should go to jail for their crimes vs the death penalty.  But I really thought that it made the wife seem like a vindictive witch.

Tonight looks like one of those rare nights for me when there is too much to choose from, TV-wise.  Of course, there is TAR (which has some kind of "surprise ending" tonight.)  I will be Tivo-ing DR Panni's FELICITY:  AN AMERICAN GIRL ADVENTURE.  But there is also MIN AND BILL on TCM which I haven't seen in years, a doc on holistic healing and Rick Steves' Christmas in Europe on PBS and Barbara Walters' Ten Most Fascinating People.  I might have to rewire the VCR so I can record on that, as well.  

Jeeze, when it rains, it pours!

For me, the only thing that I usually watch on Tuesdays is "Commander and Chief."  I do want to watch the Barbara Walters special, though.

Barbara's "interviews" are so scripted and heavily edited that they are more irritating to me than anything else.  And her subjects are so obviously geared for ratings that the idea that SHE would choose 10 of the most Interesting People of the year is ludicrous.

Television journalists are a strange bunch who care more about what their fellow journalists think of them than what they are showing the public.  I think they might be more than a bit distressed that a LOT of us think their "reporting" and "exclusives" and "stories" are mostly jokes, as are they.

Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, John Daly, Nancy Dickerson & Pauline Frederick....these were reporters and news people.   There were others, of course.  But this new crop of made-up and coiffed news readers are NOT journalists.
