Deja Viewings

Imdb reported Paramount executives blamed Eidos'
videogame Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life
for the movie's poor b.o. Deja vu? Sure, videogame
company Activision recently sued Paramount, blaming
the poor b.o. of Star Trek: Nemesis for
tarnishing their line of Star Trek games.

Fall is in the air and Whoopi's new sit-com promos
are everywhere. The Whoopster works in a hotel.
Deja vu? Sure, since it sounds like her 1990 sit-com
Baghdad Cafe, where she worked in a hotel with
Jean Stapleton (and yes, deja vu fans, that was
based on the '88 movie).

F/X just cancelled my favorite new show, Lucky.
So, in honor of Lucky, I'm going to gratuitously
use the word "shit." Shit.
