Happy Birthday digitalwave! Michael's show under fire. [Jul. 5th, 2015|06:25 pm]
Happy Birthday digitalwave! Hope it's been a good one.

Michael's new show "Impastor" has come under fire from some "slow on the uptake" types who think he's playing a real pastor. (Every article, every preview of the show has made the premise abundantly clear, not to mention the title.) So Michael has been getting complaint-tweets and I'm resisting the urge to tweet the complainers back. "Remember how the "Nuns on the Run" were NOT ACTUAL NUNS? How Robert De Niro wasn't really a priest in "We're no Angels?" How Whoopi was a showgirl in a nun's habit in "Sister Act"? There's a grand cinematic tradition of undercover priests & prelates for comedy.

Anyhow, it's giving the show a higher profile which is good.

I did enjoy one person who got the title wrong in a different way - thought he was now making wholesome religious television and was relieved to find out that wasn't the case!

For a second I thought you were going to say he thought it was a wholesome cooking show about pasta or something!

It's a double treat for me because I like David Rasche as well. I have Hammer on DVD.

I love Sledgehammer! Favourite ep. is Witless and favourite moment is when he accidentally bonks the Amish man on the head with a mallet while building a fence.
