Why don´t they just air the UK version?

I´m a huge fan of the UK TV series “Skins” about a group of young partyloving, wild acting british teens. And now MTV is airing an remake of the show – and there are NO upside to it. Usually when a british hip show gets an american remake they recast the characters with more TV friendly faces. This isn´t the case here. And the fact that the US version is censored and still getting called kiddie porn baffles me.

Anyway – I´m going to give the remake a few more episodes, but I´m not impressed.


One of my all time favourites…

I don´t know what it is, but the movie The Neverending Story (1984), is one of my all time favourite movies. I watched it as a child, and saw it again this Christmas and got he same warm, fuzzy feeling inside. And that’s kind of weird, because the acting isn´t all that good – child actors is something completely different nowadays. And the special effects are like they used to be in the eighties!

But on the other hand, the story is cute, and it brings me back 🙂

Neil P. Harris tweets that Eric Braeden is a dirtbag.

The Young and the Restless actor Eric Braeden pulled out of a How I Met Your Mother guest starring role last minute – and Neil Patrick Harris is none too pleased.

“Eric Braeden is a D-Bag,” Harris fumed on Twitter Friday. “The actor, (Robin’s dad) agreed to a cameo, then last night bailed, saying the part wasn’t ‘substantial’ enough. We’ve recast with Ray Wise, a fantastic actor who makes any part ‘substantial’. Super excited to welcome him to the family!”

Braeden appeared in a 2008 episode as Robin Scherbatsky’s (played by Cobie Smulders) father.

That´s what you get for marrying your sister!

It was short-lived, the marriage between actor Michael C. Hall and actress Jennifer Carpenter. They´ve been married for about 2 years, but have been separated for some time, and now filed for divorce.

But, hey, that´s what you get for marrying your sister. Or at least a co-worker who plays your sister.

Spokespersons for both say it´s been a peaceful break. So I guess Dexter won´t have to kill off his sister, at least not yet.

Burn, baby, Burn!

The show Burn Notice, about Michael Weston, an ex-CIA agent who gets burned/fired is now in it´s 4th season. It´s more exciting than ever!

It had its strongest numbers of the fall season Thursday night.

The USA drama delivered 4.2 million viewers, up 17% from last week, with 2 million of those in the adult demographic.

The performance leads into next week’s two-hour fourth season finale.
