THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15TH, 2009



IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA: SEASON 4

Special Features

  • Bloopers
  • Featurettes


It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 4 was a weird year for the show. You had the promising start of Mac and Dennis trying to hunt Rickety Crickety. Charlie setting Mac on fire and the closer of the The Darkman Cometh. But, you also had the poop the bed episode. You also had Mac and Charlie fake their deaths. It’s the same problem that faced The Office this year. Too many ideas going on for way too long and bogging down the mid-section of the year. Still, it works.




X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Commentaries


X-Men Origins: Wolverine  is
a giant mess of a movie. Too many cooks and too many mutants lead to what most fellow comic nerds will call a collection of missed opportunities. Do I need to see Wendigos, Department H and the variety of other Wolvie past cues to enjoy the film? No. I just need decent CG work, a working plot and Ryan Reynolds being given a purpose. Hugh Jackman does admirable work, but he’s go nowhere to go but down in flames. I still expect you to buy it en masse.


MY NAME IS EARL: SEASON FOUR

Special Features

  • Featurettes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Audio Commentaries
  • Bloopers


My Name is Earl: Season Four was the last year for a sitcom that needed to be put down. The jokes had dried up, as well as the plot. Characters keep having shared origins forced on them, while the tires kept getting retreaded. By the time that Geraldo shows up, you know that the end is near. There’s the jokes about how the executives don’t understand the show and how they don’t get the respect they once used to do. Well, America’s love affair with white trash has run dry. Good night, Camden County. Good night, Timothy Stack. Good night, semi-decent offering from the guy who created Yes, Dear.
