On TV Tonight: August 17, 2009

Peter Greenberg chronicles a week in the operation of American Airlines which include: its obsessive efforts to save fuel and how ticket prices are determined. Not included: the search for the TV Addict’s luggage, circa 2002.

Yup, nothing puts the ‘last’ nail into a successful trilogy’s coffin like hiring director Brett Ratner to helm. We’re just sayin’

NURSE JACKIE (10:30PM Showtime, 10PM TMN in Canada)
Is a movie critic (played by special guest star Victor Garber) really in a coma due to an incorrect dosage of painkillers? Or, after a summer filled with Transformers 2 and GI JOE had he simply had enough?

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • I love Nurse Jackie!! Too bad its the season finale… (or air they episode 11 tonight, because then i have already seen the episode)

  • Brett Ratner took a lot of heat for directing X-Men 3, but I think at least part of it is un-deserved. I didn’t have a problem with the way most things looked in the movie. I had a problem with the things that happened in the movie, and shouldn’t most of that blame go to the screenwriter(s)?

    Overall, I thought the movie was made rather well. There are just some things that happen in the movie that have, so far, made it near impossible for me to watch again. I’m not sure I ever will. Without going into anything too spoilery for those who *still* haven’t seen it, let’s just say that they tried to do too much in one movie, the body count is too high, and the franchise dug itself a couple holes that may be difficult to crawl out of (and, at this point, there doesn’t seem to be any signs that they’ll try).
