James leads off with news of the Paris and Nicole reunion, then reviews The Departed, liberally dispensing Oscars to one and sundry. Round-table discussion. The Onion‘s five stages of being a male movie star. House of Carters: James demonstrates Aaron’s ass-weilding behavior. Lost and Battlestar Galactica and Rosemary’s Baby, oh my! Steven doesn’t watch Lost, but tunes in dutifully to Desperate Housewives. Fenton’s amusing observation: “Didn’t Oprah seem strangely comfortable when she had on the gay wives?” Ryan Seacrest is not gay, though James begs hotly to differ. Some celebrities are more comfortable on TV than they are off. Ugly Betty: Can it last? Saturday Night Live: Sketches don’t need and shouldn’t have three acts. Robot Chicken. Mariah in bra and panties. The communal feeling when a nation suffers a tragedy. Do we need more of them? The final quarter of the podcast is best listened to without benefit (if that’s what it is) of this ClipsNotes synopsis.
PS: Oh, and Hillary was right!
