It’s in the news this week that Isabella and Jacob are now the most popular baby names in America. These are the names of two of the main characters in the Twilight series. This makes one thing clear. Too many teens are having babies.
People who keep getting better with age: Betty White. Tom Selleck. Robert Downey Jr.
Friday Night Lights is back. It’s one of the best dramas on TV today. I only this week managed to get NBC on my antenna TV. I watched all the previous seasons on DVD. The only thing I find difficult about watching the show is the shaky hand-held camera. It makes me a little dizzy. It’s a small price to pay to see Coach Eric Taylor’s brilliant relationship with his wife, conversations between Landry and Saracen, and shots of Tim Riggins shirtless. I’m carefully watching the changes in JD, who was quite sympathetic last season as the new star quarterback of the West Dillon Panthers. This season he’s arrogant and unpleasant. I hope he doesn’t become just another boring bad guy.
KTEH is showing the documentary series Islands of Britain, hosted by Martin Clunes. It’s excellent and worth searching for in the TV listings. It’s not being shown at the same time every week, except perhaps on Sundays at 5pm.
