Apologies and a Podcast: A Cultural Update

You know, folks, I had big plans for this week in my head – a review of last night’s new episode of House, a preview of ABC’s new series Eli Stone, a big post about how to prepare to watch Lost’s Fourth Season, and of course a review of the show’s season premiere. And, well, only one of these things is going to happen, so stay tuned for my review of the premiere tomorrow night.

The reason is I am ridiculously busy: I’m planning a large-scale debating tournament, preparing to enter into thesis hibernation, planning my long-term academic future, helping promote/facilitate a campus event, and fighting off the later stages of a cold. It’s kind of like the perfect storm of every commitment I have at this point, and unfortunately blogging is the most malleable of those commitments.

As a result, I’ll be out of the commission over the next few weeks, but I’m at least happy that I have something to tide you over. This time with a far better microphone (So good it apparently picked up a ridiculous amount of background noise, including my ludicrously loud typing), I was once again a guest of Dave, Devindra and Adam over at The Watchers. These guys know their entertainment, and it’s always a pleasure to join them in discussing the latest in film and television.

The Watchers Episode Four

In terms of television, I briefly discuss Eli Stone and Chuck’s final two episodes of the season while everyone gangs up on the hugely successful and hugely exploitative Moment of Truth. We also discuss the return of Weeds and Mad Men’s writers, followed by an indepth discussion of another of last summer’s best shows, Damages. For film buffs, there’s also an indepth discussion of The Nines and our comments about Heath Ledger’s tragic passing.

So head on over to The Watchers to check that out, and check back here at Cultural Learnings on Thursday night for the definitive Lost review*.

*Note: May or may not actually be definitive.
