Aaron Sorkin’s “The Mountain and the Viper”

I had a chance to check out the original edit of last week’s epic Game of Thrones showdown between The Red Viper Prince Oberyn Martell and The Mountain Gregor Clegane, and I have to say I think I find this version a bit more compelling. Certainly more star-studded.

At the very least, this certainly opens up a lot more doors for Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

Lindsay Lohan on ‘SNL’: Sobering Saturday

Four days have passed since Lindsay Lohan returned to host Saturday Night Live, and the benefit of time does nothing to portray her performance in any more of a positive light.  Yes, in spite of her wooden, stumbling, at times helpless appearance, the show delivered some of its strongest moments of the season (including Bill Hader reaching new levels of brilliance as both Shephard Smith and James Carville, and an inspired, if somewhat haphazardly placed, “Music of the 70s” commercial parody with a retro-coiffed Jason Sudeikis), but those sketches  don’t negate Lohan’s awkward struggle, her 90-minute death march, and nor has almost a week of reflection.

It wasn’t always this way.  And that’s why this is so sad, so tragic.  There was a time when Lindsay Lohan was a bona fide star, white-hot and electric.  The next big thing while simultaneously being the “it” the girl.  And, yes, she had curves, but she also had talent.  Was she a young Jodie Foster?  Outside of the freckles, no.  But she had something that a young Jodie Foster did not.  Sizzle.  Sparkle.  That special something.

But where does that special something go when it dies?

Gratuitous Search Term Bait of the Day: Detention Center

Before we get to tonight’s Idol, we’re going to continue with our Saved by the Bell themed Gratuitous Search Term Bait of the Day, this time working with the familiar search term “community anthony michael hall.”  But, once again, we’re going to put a Bayside twist on this, and to do so, let’s play a little word, or concept, association.  Where does Community take place?  Well, at a community college, of course.  And what’s a broader word for “college?”  How about “school?”  Sure, school.  And when we think of Anthony Michael Hall and school what comes to mind?  The Breakfast Club, of course!  And where does that movie chronicle?  A day of detention!  And where have we also seen a day of detention?  Why, in the Saved by the Bell season episode literally titled “Day of Detention.”  Boom!  Six degrees of Saved by the Bell.

So, now, as you might have guessed, here’s a brief but colorful clip from that memorable day:

And, remember, don’t confuse this episode with “Senior Cut Day.”  It’s an easy mistake.
