Spader creeped me out as the drug dealer in the 80's movie with Jami Gertz and Robert Downey, the name escapes me right now...but haven't really tuned into anything with him on board.

Less Than Zero...not remembering this has been bugging me all day. And that was a Google free remember!

I never got into the Prison Break re-boot. Didn't want to be let down like in the original. Will just have to find something new to get hooked on....and there will be a big gap between the end of the current season of Hell's Kitchen and the next Survivor!

Just saw the new season of Survivor starts at the end of February! Not a long gap at all. I'm rooting for Nick on Hell's Kitchen since my man Milly got kicked off.

Nick or Michelle should win. I'm glad Milly is gone. :) I thought that Dana should have been there over Milly, and she certainly should have gone farther than Elise.

Elise should have been gone a longgggggg time ago but she was probably kept around to keep the show interesting. Dana and Jennifer were good and I got a kick out of Van too. As long as "oui chef" Benjamin doesn't win I'll be ok.

Elise should have been gone very early on!!! Psychotic = ratings!!!! I like any of the remaining three, for me it was sort of an "as long as Elise doesn't win, I am happy" scenario. Feels like Ramsey has a soft spot for oui, benjamin - but I am hoping for Michelle, but logic says it will be Nick. All depends on who gets the better helping staff for the finale.

Shame it wasn't a Nick/Michelle final, but Michelle winning it all seems about right. I think the best part was Elise crying and crying and crying. To not only not make the finals but than have to cook for your bitter rival and than have her win it all, right in front of you....seems like karma got that one right!

After Nick got eliminated it was Michelle all the way. She handled Elise quite well during service but I have no clue why Elise was crying so much after Michelle won. It almost seems that producers asked her to for that "ha ha ha neener neener neener" moment for the viewing audience. I was expecting more of a sabotage from her but at least they shook hands when service was over.

Thought it was actually smart for Michelle to take Elise on her team - if she was on Benjamin's, she would do everything she could to out cook Michelle. If Elise tried to sabotage Michelle on her team, Ramsey would have destroyed her for it.

She despised Michelle and had to help her win it all - that had to be brutal!

Elise is a good chef (and she's kinda hot), I won't deny that, but her attitude is just awful. She thinks EVERYTHING has to go her way. Would have like to seen a Nick/Michelle finale, but Benjamin did what he needed to do and deserved to be there.

I recommend "Altered Carbon" on Netflix for any Sci-fi Action fans... sorta like a cross between Total Recall and Blade Runner for lack of better description

Good week on the horizon....

Ash v. Evil Dead kicks off on Sunday night and Survivor: Ghost Island kicks off on Wednesday night.

Would have liked to have watched part of the marathon of Ash on Saturday, but spent the morning at a baseball clinic and the afternoon playing Playstation.

For history geeks like me I would recommend Marco Polo on Netflix. Definitely changed my view of who he was as a historical figure.

Survivor: Ghost Island - two episodes in and they are still bringing in castaways that are dumber than bricks. Crazy twist to swap the tribes after only two episodes. Definitely shook up the alliances, but not sure how you can have a 5-4 advantage in both tribes and wind up losing one of your own members..brilliant!

Survivor: Ghost Island -- It appears the smartest person on the island is the youngest. Showing the idol, claiming it had powers that it didn't - kind of a brilliant move. Too bad it didn't work and he lost his ally anyway. On the flip side, when are losing tribes going to realize, once you have lost, vote off the weakest player on the team, not the strongest, especially early in the game. Otherwise, all you are doing is weakening yourself for future challenges and putting yourself in a position to have to go back to Tribal Council.

Survivor: Ghost Island - And we immediately find out the reason it isn't an intelligent move to vote out strong members of your tribe early on in the process. You just keep losing challenges and having to go back to tribal and vote another member out. At least the loser tribe last night figured that out.....and voted one of their weaker members off. Previews are showing another tribe swap, will see how that plays out.

Didn't want to see Stephanie go though; kinda liked her. They could have/should have voted off the other girl (name is escaping me right now).

On another note - my youngest daughter told me about Blue Mountain State on Netflix. It's a football college show that doesn't really show much football (a little bit in practice). It's more about the raunchy, drinking, etc. that goes on in college, especially with football players. I find it entertaining, however I can see where it would definitely not be the right cup of tea for many. If you watch the entire first episode, you'll watch all of it. If you turn it off in the first 5 minutes, you'll never turn it on again. Ed Marinaro is the coach of this fictitious team.
