New DVD Tuesday
Leaves of Grass (2009): Edward Norton
I know very little about this independent film other than the fact that Ed Norton plays dual roles. That's it and that's all I need to know. In.
TV Shows No One Cares About
Ghost Whisperer - Season 5 (2009): Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jamie Kennedy
The show that sort-of almost reinvigorated the Friday night lineup centers around a woman (Love Hewitt) who can see and speak with ghosts. Basically "The Sixth Sense" without Bruce Willis. I have no idea how this thing got through five seasons but good for it, I guess.
CSI: Miami - Season 8 (2009): David Caruso, Emily Procter
The best thing about "CSI: Miami" is that it provides awesome joke fodder for "Saturday Night Live", "Community", and yours truly. I've got a great series of jokes based on David Caruso's terrible "opening line then put the sunglasses on while The Who play the theme song" bit. Trust me, it's a great set.
New to Blu Ray
Blu Ray Pick of the Week or Whenever I Feel Like Doing This
The Darjeeling Limited (2007): Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman
This is easily the lowliest of Wes Anderson's films but I actually quite liked it. It focuses on three very different brothers who take a train through India in an effort to get to know each other once again. Quirky and off beat just like everything Anderson has ever done, the characters are extremely likable and it's a rather warm, fun movie. Definitely worth a viewing if you've never seen it.
