NOW on PBS #406. It’s the Emmy award-winning weekly newsmagazine. It looks at issues facing our democracy. The show is hosted by David Brancaccio. And, even better, they still send me e-mails (I think that makes me cool and them nice). Thanks, Now, you guys are awesome!
9:00 - 10:00PM
Bill Moyers Journal #1144. It’s Bill Moyers. It’s his 1,144th journal (not really, but I’m not going to explain to you the way in which TV shows are numbered at this point in time, maybe later if you’re nice). He’s a good journalist so I assume this will be good journalism (at least the odds are it will).
10:00PM - 11:00PM
In Search of Shakespeare – "A Time of Revolution". This is a four-part series. It's all hosted by Michael Wood. This week he's looking at the "dark side of Shakespeare's world." I just hope he doesn't get too close to the dark side. Once you start down the path to the dark side forever will it dominate your destiny.
Saturday, February 9:
9:00 – 10:00PM
Austin City Limits – "Etta James". Everything's betta with Etta. Try Etta, she's betta. Etta, betta. Betta, Etta. Not only does her name make for some fun rhyming, she's a fantastic singer. Watch, you'll see what I mean (about the rhyming mainly).
Quantum of Solace, that's what the Patriots need, a Quantum of Solace. And, by the way, that's the name of the movie that I want a walk-on role in. Quantum of Solace. If you've been reading the column you know what I'm talking about. Quantum of Solace. Me. I'm going to need way more than that if I don't get my walk-on role.
