    Small Talk: All Trawling, No Trolling

    Sig and Dwyer (? I think? a young captain.) are making the talk show rounds in advance of tonight's premier. Sig said on TODAY that he was "too stubborn to die." Heh.

    Small Talk: All Trawling, No Trolling

    He had a "widowmaker?!" That's a really nasty type of heart attack (not that every heart attack isn't bad, but the left anterior is especially bad, hence its nickname.) He is very, very lucky that he survived the initial attack and got to a hospital in time. However, 49 is really too young. Come on, Sig - take better care of yourself! This is going to be one interesting season of Deadliest Catch. Discovery execs must be drooling with excitement.

    Small Talk: All Trawling, No Trolling

    Just saw the news on Sig's heart attack on Yahoo - the article says he collapsed while filming and briefly "lost consciousness." When he was revived, he wanted to keep fishing! The crew evidently had to convince him to get airlifted to a hospital. Anyone know how old he is? Seems like captaining is a quick way to a heart attack.

    Cutthroat Kitchen

    I liked last night's episode - I particularly liked that Alton made sure that many of the items in the packed lunches could be re-purposed or transformed, and that it was the male chef's fault for not being more creative. Also liked the wood-paneled station wagon (which my parents totally had in the 80's!)
  5. The funny thing is I actually rather liked the bird commercial at first - "little bird phones" still makes me smile - but after seeing it 50 times or so, I realized that something about it was really bugging me (other than the fact that I had seen it about 50 times.) Anyway, it also irks me that no one, during the final edit of the commercial, caught the fact that they were using clips of two different types of geese.
  6. Finally figured out what was annoying me about the "Bad Cell Recpetion for Geese" commercial (Verizon, I think?) There are two distinct types of geese in the commercial - Canada geese and some black-and-white geese (I don't know the name, but they're definitely not Canada geese, as these guys have no brown and different markings on their heads.) So the commercial starts by showing Canada geese flying, cuts to black-and-white geese grazing, cut to close-up of a Canada goose (when the announcer says "they hate that"), then cut to black and white geese flying off. (Now, I may have some of the editing cuts turned around, but regardless.....). It's not the same geese! Those are two different flocks of geese having problems with their cell phone reception! But the commercial acts like it's the same group of geese for the whole commercial! What, do they think we're blind or something!! (Such a little thing, I know, but gah! It gets under my skin!)

    Damn... Chef Robyn has almost made a career out of appearing on food competition shows. Cutthroat Kitchen, Camp Cutthroat, Chopped, Hell's Kitchen.... What hasn't she been on? Of course, I could say the same about Chef Emmanuel, but he's A LOT more tolerable.

    Ha! I yelled the same thing - "truffle oil? Nooooooo!"

    Thank goodness Robyn didn't win! She is sooooooo annoying! Ugh! Watching her get pelted by dodgeballs was very satisfying.
  10. Is it really that hard to grill meat (elk?)? I'm not a "grill master" by any means, but I think that even I could grill better than these shlubs. Ok, maybe not in a competition setting, but still, how hard is it to not burn the hot dogs? At least the one guy didn't try to sell his dish as "very rare" and admitted that he didn't cook the meat long enough (unlike the Diva from the first grill masters episode.).

    Monty's Marathon Diary: Imaginary Aliens

    I'm old enough to know that "Stars Hollow" is really the county seat from "Dukes of Hazzard."
  12. Chef Robin exhausts me....

    Simon Majumdar dressed as a clown, complete with wig and red nose? Priceless! I just about laughed myself right off my couch. His statement to Alton, "If I find out that this was your idea..." just made me laugh harder. The clown car sabotage was also a hoot.
  14. God, I love her biker outfit! It's right up there with her scuba outfit.

    Ok, that dollhouse sabotage (on the June 28 episode) was awesome! Unique and hilarious at the same time.
