"Dream On"

I've already covered seasons one and two with collages which were made from the DVD set. The results are chronicled here, and the actual collages can be found in the back issues. I still have those DVDs, so I'll go back and make film clips when I finish covering the rest of the series, which I'm going to start today. I'm going to do seasons 3-6 because they have rarely been covered at all, and have never been catalogued show-by-show. That's because they've never been released to DVD. These broadcast clips are better than VHS quality, but not up to DVD standards.

Covering this show is not hard work. It's funny and clever.

Nudity report for episodes 9-19 of season three:

  • Episode 9 - none
  • Episode 10 - no female nudity, but a pre-Friends Courteney Cox looked spectacular in lingerie. (FILM CLIP) Male: Brian Benben and Darien Wilson showed their buns.
  • Episode 11 - Honey Lauren appeared topless as a stripper. (FILM CLIP.)
  • Episode 12 - none
  • Episode 13 - none
  • Episode 14 - none
  • Episode 15 - female nudity only in the old-time clips, from an anonymous hula girl. (FILM CLIP.)
  • Episode 16 - there's no nudity, but Helen Slater looked awesome in a see-through robe. (FILM CLIP). This was lensed eight years after Supergirl, but she had not aged a day.
  • Episode 17 - Michelle Brin showed her breasts in a fantasy sequence. (FILM CLIP.)
  • Episode 18 - Natasha Pavlova (aka Natasha Pavlovich) showed her breasts as a stripper at a bachelor party. (FILM CLIP.) Some porn stars were seen in a stag film. (FILM CLIP.)
  • Episode 19 - Maureen Kedes showed her breasts in a sex scene with Brian Benben. (FILM CLIP.)

 

 

  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Shameless

American Version, Season One, 2011

While I fiddle around with old episodes of Dream On in sub-DVD quality, Aesthete is going to take on all the top TV shows of 2011 in 1920x1080 clips. Shameless comes up first on his list, but he'll also get to Game of Thrones and the Spartacus prequel.

Primos

2011

Primos (Cousins) is a comedy from the director of Azuloscurocasinegro and Gordos, two films I quite like.

Three cousins wonder what to do next when one of them is left at the altar. After some deliberation, they head to their favourite holiday place from their youth. Once there, Diego bumps into an old girlfriend Martina (Inma Cuesta) and looks to get back with her to soothe his pain from being left at the altar. JuliŠn spies the old video store owner Bachi, who has lost his shop and is always drunk, while his daughter (Clara Lago, brilliant in El Juego del Ahorcado) is working at a brothel. Josť Miguel is a walking nervous wreck with all sorts of ailments with his girlfriend perpetuating them. All three cousins are going to change over their holiday and not necessarily in the way you expect.

Yeah, I dunno, I didn't really like this film as much as the previous two films. Most of what happens seems inconsequential. Is it really a good thing to move on by going backwards? Bah, why not just beg your runaway bride to come back? Sure, people go to what they know best because it's the easiest thing to do, but do you really move on when you do this? Disappointing film, sadly.
