Sonny was a real treat for us kids growing up in Detroit. It was what we would sneak out of bed and run into our parents room to watch. I still have a poster of Sonny Eliot from The Detroit Free Press where he is in the Red Wings Goal and he had “missed” a couple of dozen shots on goal. He was a strong part of my childhood like Milky The Clown, Bozo, and Sir Graves Ghastly. RIP Sonny!
My wife and I were in Detroit last weekend visiting family and we decided to stop by American Jewelry and Loan where they film the reality-based show, Hardcore Pawn. The Pawn shop is a family-owned pawn shop on W. 8 Mile Road and Greenfield Street in Detroit, Michigan.
I grew up in Detroit. When I saw this commercial during the Super Bowl, it gave me goosebumps. Watch it and see if it doesn’t do the same for you.
For two weeks in a row, FlashForward had their lowest ratings ever. Now I need to point out that they are going against the NCAA Basketball Tournaments in their time slot. You would have thought the network programmers would have been proactive and waited another month before bringing it back.
I think the two episodes this season have been very interesting. We learned that Simon was an unsuspecting “Suspect Zero.” at the stadium in Detroit. We also know that “D. Gibbons” stole Lloyd’s research and claimed it as his own. Also, we now know that Zoey actually was attending Demetri’s memorial service (he was shot by Mark three times).
Last weeks episode showed how bad ass Aaron really is.
I am hoping to see more, but the networks seem to give less time for a series to take hold. I think FlashForward is worth saving. Are you listening ABC?
Blair Kennedy blogged on my comments about there being LOST images in the first episode of Flash Forward. He said:
Did you see the billboard for Oceanic Airlines that was in the surveillance scene? At the current time, Oceanic has a “Perfect Safety Record”.
So what does this mean? LOST is happening in 1977 and 2007. Flash Forward is happening now since six months from now is April 29th, 2010. Please blog and let me know your thoughts and suspicions.
