‘FlashForward’ series finale one of the worst in TV history

Filed under: Television — Charlie Summers @ 9:16 pm

From the New York Daily News: ‘FlashForward’ series finale is one of the worst in TV history

From the article by David Hinckley, a great friend to radio as well as television: “That would be the finale of ‘FlashForward,’ which finished its season and its life on ABC Thursday with a collage of events that made less sense than my 12th grade calculus class, Lindsay Lohan’s behavior and 270-pound men in Speedos.”

Just watched it. Brannon Braga. ‘Nuff said.

‘Easy Rider’ actor Dennis Hopper dies

Filed under: Television, News — Charlie Summers @ 2:19 pm

From CNN: ‘Easy Rider’ actor Dennis Hopper dies

From the article: “Dennis Hopper, the one-time Hollywood enfant terrible who portrayed such indelible characters as ‘Easy Rider’s’ biker Billy, ‘Blue Velvet’s’ huffing villain Frank Booth and ‘Hoosiers'’ forlorn Shooter Flatch, died of prostate cancer Saturday morning at his home in Venice, California, his wife said. He was 74.”

After having recently mourned the death of the TV series 24, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Mr. Hopper’s villainous character Victor Drazen was killed by Jack Bauer in the very first season of the series.

Creators Must Move Beyond Suing the Audience

From the Electronic Frontier Foundation: Creators Must Move Beyond Suing the Audience

This commentary from the EFF explains what content providers are up against, and how the lawyers are the only ones profiting from the virtual blackmail in the proffered “settlements.” From the article: “This much should be abundantly clear by now: creators must move beyond suing the audience. File-sharers are characterized as shallow thieves, when in reality they’re just fans who are using one of the most efficient technologies for distribution ever invented to explore creative works in the most convenient way possible. The majority of these fans would like to live in a world where there’s an efficient, effective, modern framework for compensating the creators. That framework will be built through innovation and experimentation — not litigation.”
