In this edition of Brusimm’s piece of TV news, we chat about…

  • A show that Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie are starring in together,
  • About a Boy,
  • Agents of SHIELD (Edward James Olmos joining the cast),
  • Bates Motel,
  • Bob’s Burgers,
  • Daredevil on Netflix,
  • Glee,
  • HBO’s Game of Thrones,
  • HBO’s Veep,
  • HBO’s Silicon Valley,
  • Mad Men,
  • Sons of Anarchy (Reflection on their overall TV ratings), &
  • The Walking Dead

Is About A Boy in danger? NBC reduced it’s episode order of its second season down to 20. Sometimes when a show gets its episode order reduced, that means it is not holding its weight in the ratings as well as the network would like. So prepare thyself, just in case.  Though to reduce it by just a few episodes and still have 20 episodes to a season isn’t too shabby of a situation.

'Thor', with Chris Hemsworth header image

This is a movie review of Thor, from Paramount Pictures.  It stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgård & more.  It’s directed by Kenneth Branagh.

It was Saturday, mid-afternoon at the Redwood Century 21 movie theaters.  It’s an excellent facility. The first crowd came out and everyone was smiling from having just seen the movie. Excellent first real-time movie review. My theater was about 90% full for Thor.  Don’t fret, it was an early showing.

Thor starts out as we’re watching Jane Foster (Portman) chasing a weather phenomenon and after a few events in this opener scene.  We then switch to Asgard and backtrack a bit to see how Thor (Chris Hemsworth) gets himself banished to Earth by dad, Odin (The venerable Anthony Hopkins).

The story evolves from there, alternating between Earth and Asgard as the two plots that depend on each other, develop in each realm, respectively.

Each, depending on or supplementing events in the other, to one degree or another.
