This past weekend, I saw 50/50. For a full review, check out Thursday’s show, episode 30. However, to briefly state my opinion, this felt tailored to me. I love movies about characters, preferably in a comedic state. Being a fan of James L. Brooks’ earlier films, I can see a lot of the influence on director Jonathan Levine’s work. I won’t waste your time with the reasoning why Joseph Gordon-Levitt may be one of the greatest young actors currently working (does Brick or(500) Days of Summer not prove it?). I won’t waste your time discussing Levine’s other movie the Wackness (featuring the immortal line “I just look at the dopeness. But you, it’s like you just look at the wackness, ya know?”).

“Go ahead, laugh. Thank you. I appreciate it. But the fact is, I’m here. Now, tomorrow you’ll know I wasn’t kidding… and you’ll think I was crazy. But, look, I figure it this way. Better to be king for a night than a schmuck for a lifetime.”

It’s been weird adjusting to the new Fall TV season. I’m not just talking about new programming. Even the selected time slots for reruns have become a conflict. I’m used to two episodes of the Simpsons a night on FOX. Now, there’s only one. I have been looking to find a gap for those nights I don’t want to watch it’s replacement, the Big Bang Theory.

This past Monday was a big night for Charlie Sheen. His show Two and a Half Men gained it’s best ratings in six years. He was also the subject of the most recent Comedy Central Roast. This guy is unstoppable, right?
