Peter Dinklage Wins Emmy

Peter Dinklage won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the Primetime Emmys on Sunday night.  I’m incredibly glad that he received the nod, because it was a difficult category.  He beat out Nightcrawler, Howard Stark and Shane Vendrell, and a couple other people.

Where’s Joffrey? I’ve got something I need to smack him with.

I can only assume that Mr. Dinklage was nominated in the Supporting Actor category as to not spoil things for those that haven’t read or seen A Game of Thrones.  When it comes right down to it, he’s clearly the lead actor.

Re-Watching Dead

“Admit it. You only came back to Atlanta for the hat.”

With the second season of AMC’s amazing The Walking Dead starting in just over a month, it’s finally time for Mel and I to sit back, relax and pace ourselves through a month of revisiting post-Zombie Apocalypse Georgia.

Look to your left… Now look to your right.
Come graduation day, one of you will no longer be with us.


Sure, The Walking Dead‘s short but sweet first season may have wrapped up a while ago.  Mel and I watched it, re-watched it, and I’ve watched it yet again since. But that was months ago.

As I recall… the series is fantastic in its own right. It’s true that die hard fans of the comic, like myself, have often been a bit disappointed in some of the turns that the series has taken; but I remember these twists and turns working (for the most part). Before Season 2 starts I also intend to re-read (at least) the first 3 trade paperbacks of the comic.

Watch this spot in the future, as I intend to post our different feelings on each episode as we revisit the misadventures of Rick Grimes yet again.

In the meantime… here’s a trailer for Season 2 that played at this year’s Comic-Con.

Community

Season 3 of NBC’s Community starts Sept. 22/11.


I’m ridiculously excited to be able to watch more of the crazy antics of Greendale Community College.  The show has done nothing but get better and better as it has continued.  It is easily the funniest show on TV at the moment.

Here’s a sneak peek of what Sept. 22 might have in store for us:


John Goodman is a fan-fucking-tastic addition to the cast.  I have a feeling he’ll really tie the show together.

Seems to me the cast and crew will be having as much fun as ever this year.  I’m incredibly interested to see where they go with the show this year.  They’ve done so much, and yet, I’m sure there’s still so much more they can do.

Also… Here’s a picture I found of the show’s characters if they were Marvel’s Avengers. It was drawn by Chris Schweizer, and posted at his blog.

PIERCE SMASH!

I want.

I know, it being this close to Christmas, it’s a terrible thing to start saying “I want this”, “I want that”, etc…  but I just found out that they’re finally selling these:

BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL!

They’re new toys made in a similar design to the old ones, but made larger, with more articulation and detail.  I had heard about them quite a few months ago, but they only started pre-selling them online about 2 weeks ago.  

Of course, with them only being in limited supply, and only available through an online store, for me to get one would cost me more than they’d actually be worth.  So I can’t see me getting one.  As a matter of fact, I shouldn’t really even be writing about it.  But the only other thing on my mind at the moment is how much I think “Terminator 4” is going to suck, and how much the current season of “Heroes” actually does suck.
So yeah…  in summary… I’m a Fat Guy With Glasses.
