LEGO Fight on the Flying Wing, (7683)


One of my favorite scenes from Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark, is Indy’s fist fight with the airplane mechanic. The Nazi’s have possession of the Ark, and plan on taking it back to Berlin. Indy must stop the plane from taking off with the Ark. But first he has to get through the giant mechanic.  LEGO’s new set 7683, Flight on the Flying Wing, re-enacts this scene with this new 376 piece set.

Wings, The Final Season

The final season of Wings arrives in stores next month, and still no special features for the fans. The show was a moderate success for NBC. You would think that Paramount would throw something on the final DVD. Nothing. At least on Family Ties discs they included the promos!

Dave’s World, Season 2

Dave’s World was a show that I completely forgotten about.  I remember when it was on, but it was always one of those take it or leave it shows for me. Which was strange especially because I loved Harry Anderson in Night Court.

Spin City, Season 1

In a world of constantly changing tastes and preferences, some things prove themselves to be timeless. Favorite books, classic movies, even the occasional sitcom. Such is the case with Spin City.

Michael J. Fox plays Mike Flaherty, deputy mayor of New York City. His job consists largely of turning the Mayor’s occasional gaffes into less volatile opportunities for reproach– hence the title. His staff consists of actors Alan Ruck, Connie Britton, Alexander Chaplin and Michael Boatman. His dedicated staff serve at the pleasure of the mayor, one Barry Bostwick.

The show’s writing is quite sharp. I’ll admit, the first few episodes are a bit rough around the edges– writers getting acclimated to the cast, the cast taking time to fuse together as an ensemble. Once they find their footing however, the rest of the season proves to be a classic.

Fox begins the show with a long-term girlfriend, a reporter played by the timeless beauty Carla Gugino. Their chemistry (and conflict of professional interests) provide much of the meat for the season’s first half Gugino left the show prematurely for a number of reasons; one of which was to allow Fox’s character Flaherty to date a variety of guest stars– allowing the show to stay more fresh. I personally think she could have stayed on longer, but the realistic portrayal of Flaherty losing a great love of his life was satisfyingly genuine.

The show’s teamwork both in comedy and in politics runs with the precision of a swiss watch. One liners, rejoinders and even the occasional bit of slapstick are delivered with style. Special mention should be made of veteran character Richard Kind, who played the press secretary. His work is nothing short of comedy gold. The man’s talent for self-deprecating goofiness is worth the price of admission alone.

For a sitcom, the show took many gambles that paid off handsomely: Michael Boatman plays a gay man in a lead role long before Will & Grace ever aired. The show also touched on delicate subjects such as inner city drug use and the scandal of extra-marital affairs in the mayor’s office.

Also worth note is the star-studded collection of guest appearances. Actors and actresses who would later outshine the entire cast (excepting Fox) sharpened their chops with small but satisfying roles on Spin City: Gretchen Mol, Jennifer Garner and the ever-smug Stephen Colbert can all be found in blink-and-you’ll-miss-’em cameos, along with several more.

The first season DVD features interviews with the whole cast as well as running commentary for the season’s best episodes. At 12 years since its premiere, Spin City proves its comedic potential is very well preserved and worth your taking a look. I highly recommend you pick it up

WALL•E vs Kung-Fu Panda

Wall-EKung Fu Panda

I am reviewing Kung Fu-Panda and WALL-E back to back because they were the summer’s biggest animated features. I found that just like Iron Man and Dark Knight, you have two excellent genre movies, however one is a bit lighter and dare I say more entertaining than the big heavy. I compared Iron Man to a delicious cheeseburger, that has two strips of bacon and just the right amount of BBQ sauce. Something tasty. Dark Knight was more like an expertly grilled piece of steak, with gourmet sauces, and just large enough to make you pleasantly full at the end. I love that experience, but I couldn’t do it every weekend. I could have cheeseburgers several times a week.
