Can't wait for Monday!!

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertai...are-shes-dead/

I read the story above and all I could think about was how much I can't wait for Howard to go on a Kathie Lee rant on Monday!! Poor Martin Short. Howard did a rant about Kathie Lee a while back and I loved it.

I have to say I thought howard was great on AGT, but....its just not my kind of show. I found most acts just annoying and the crowd annoying. i don't know, maybe its just me, but i'm not really into the reality tv stuff. those competitions seem ridiculous. I can't name one previous winner, are they really stars after? eh.

Okay, this is sort of off-topic, and yet not off-topic at the same time, as it is Howard-related. It's something Howard has mentioned on the radio show several times in the last 6 months.

"Breaking Bad," the TV show. Thoughts? Has anyone here seen it? I am sooo anxious to know what you all think, and if you have watched it!

I have to admit - sometimes I like a lot of the goofy, mindless, fun, harmless, guilty pleasure-type shows & movies that Howard likes ("American Idol," "The Bachelor," "The Real Housewives," etc.). Sometimes he watches things that I cannot stand. And sometimes he bashes movies that I love (Howard is no Disney fan, for example, and I am)!

So I was hesitant to give "Breaking Bad" a try after hearing Howard rave about it (once he finally caught onto it, after Robin encouraged him). For some reason, that show was never marketed well, or the basic premise of the show didn't hook me in when I read about it. It's been on TV since 2008, and I just watched my first "Breaking Bad" episode a few weeks ago, after Howard said it was the best show on TV.

And. I. LOVE. It.

What a show! Howard and Robin are not exaggerating when they say "Breaking Bad" is amazing. Not only is there top-notch acting from every single actor on that show, including the supporting cast (there are some great villains, too!), but the writing is so good that it keeps things moving along to where it rarely gets boring. There are some "OMG! I can't believe that just happened" moments throughout the series...things that you don't really expect.

The first season of "Breaking Bad" is probably the weakest. The very first episode is not the thing that reeled me in at all. I actually started out by watching a couple of random episodes from the middle of Seasons 2 & 3. Those are what hooked me in. Then, I went back and watched all of the seasons, back to back, and am currently watching them again to gear myself up for the Season 5 debut on July 15. Seasons 2, 3 and 4 are the best - but even Season 1 has some good stuff in it.

Now I have to see how this series ends! The main character - Walter White - is surely one of the most complex characters on TV. A bad guy and a good guy at the same time. He's done awful things, and it cannot end well for him in the long run...and yet, you can't help but hope that he somehow prevails!

Howard was definitely not off the mark in his praise of this show. If you don't already watch it, you should!

I just finished season 3, best series I've watched in a long time. The way they end shows you just can't wait for the next, and the strage twists and turns, good stuff.

Yes, Heisenberg! I love the Heisenberg hat and shades, too!

The thing is, Walt is not a great guy when he is being Heisenberg, but he is a great guy when he is being a family man. In fact, he even has some genuine affection for Jesse at times. Jesse is a rather sympathetic character underneath the addiction. Walt cares for him. You can tell there is a conscience underneath all of the bad stuff.

Season 3 was awesome. Season 4 is just as good, if not better! Wait until you get through Season 4 (if you haven't seen any of it already)!

Gus is a great villain. Those creepy cousins/brothers who frowned and never spoke were great. Tuco was a great, crazy villain. Hank could easily be written as a thoroughly obnoxious cop that Walter hates, but Hank is kind of likable and funny. Hank's partner at the DEA is funny. It's a great, great cast!

When Bryan Cranston won Emmys for playing Walter in 2008, 2009 and 2010, I was grumbling, "Eh...it's that dad from 'Malcolm in the Middle' again, in a new role. It's probably much ado about nothing." Now that I've seen "Breaking Bad," I'm thinking, "He'd better be nominated and win the Emmy this year for Season 4! He will be robbed if he does not win!"

For anyone who has not seen "Breaking Bad" yet, but has heard Howard and Robin talk about it being the best TV show, I would suggest not starting with the very first episode. It almost seems more comedic in the pilot (sort of). Just to pick some shows at random to recommend, from various seasons, some great ones are "ABQ" from Season 2; "Box Cutter," "Crawlspace" and "Face Off" from Season 4...and I could go on. Oh, and then there is the one with the turtle, which you have to see to believe!

It's a great, great show!

Did anyone watch AGT tonight? My brother is voting for Big Barry just because he wants to see Howard go nuts if he makes it through the next cut. I think Howard is doing an awesome job as a judge and I can't wait to hear his latest stories when he comes back to the radio show.

Oh Artie

http://www.tmz.com/2012/07/17/artie-...-paris-france/

I heard a rumor that Artie would be appearing on the Stern show in November to promote his new book. When I read this story it makes me doubt that Howard would let it happen now.

I am so tired of this show. Howard rarely talks about anything I want to hear - he wastes so much time on stuff I have no interest in at all - and when there is finally something I am interested to hear comments on, such as the finale of The Walking Dead, he won't talk about it! Ugh.

Robin asked him if she could please talk about TWD and Howard nixed it. He said that it would have to wait until next week...except that next week he will be taping AGT.

Robin said something like, "So that means that we'll never have this conversation" and Howard basically changed the subject.

The thing is, Howard is a huge Walking Dead fan. Robin is a huge fan. Many, many, many of Howard's listeners are huge fans of that show. People want to talk about TV shows and current events while they are still current and relevant, and while the audience is excited to hear other opinions on these events.

Howard's refusal to talk about TWD (even though he watched the finale) is because...why? Because some people in the back office haven't seen it yet? Who cares? Get with the program! People are talking about it now on other sites. NOW is when people want to talk about it - not in 2 weeks.

Howard won't even remember what happened on TWD finale in 2 weeks, and then he will grumble about it being old news and no one cares about it anymore.

Loved the special this past week. Especially Howard's thoughts about the OJ Simpson sentencing and Paris Hilton's jail time. It had me in stitches.

I also liked how he stopped a serial killer, and insane father from acting out on his step daughter.
