The Sopranos… in seven minutes
Curious about checking out the final season of “The Sopranos” but don’t have the time to watch the previous seasons before it premieres next Sunday?
Don’t fret. Some kid named Paul Gulyas has taken it upon himself to edit a seven minute “refresher” montage that pretty much explains everything that went down during the first six years. He speaks a little fast at times, and it’s probably pretty confusing for someone that’s never seen the show before, but it gets the job done, and just under eight minutes.
Okay, so it’s actually “The Sopranos” in seven minutes and thrirty-five seconds, but feel free to check it out before YouTube takes it down.
WSUX in Cincinnati…?
I haven’t gotten my copy of “WKRP in Cincinnati: The Complete First Season” yet – although Lord knows I’m chomping at the bit for its arrival – but according to Jamie Weinman’s blog, where he discusses what he’s found on his copy, it sounds like I won’t be nearly as excited as I’d hoped to be.
Man, y’know, I knew they wouldn’t license every single song that was played on the air during the various episodes, but my jaw dropped at the revelation that “Old Time Rock ‘N’ Roll” didn’t make the cut in the pilot.
Paris might go to jail
Oh, no. Looks like Paris Hilton could be looking at jail time. An investigation has been opened in regards to her being ticketed last month while driving on a suspended license due to her probation. At the time, Hilton claims she didn’t know the license was suspended. Investigators claim they have more than enough evidence to suggest that she did in fact know this to be the case. Hilton could face up to 90 days in jail. Don’t hold your breath.
BE’s Badass Bracket: Round Three
This is one lean, mean Sweet 16. Law enforcement has done extremely well so far (though the police do not condone the actions of either McClane or Callahan, and have scheduled anger management sessions and sensitivity training for both), but representatives of the New York, Miami and Los Angeles branches of organized crime are ready, willing and able to bust a cap. Unfortunately for the gangsters, two of them – Jules Winnfield and Tony Montana – face off against each other, leaving them at least one soldier down in the Elite Eight.
Ellen Ripley has her hands full against the flying firsts of Lee, the meddling archaeologist takes on the drunk gunslinger, and in what is perhaps the most intriguing battle of the round, the cannibal squares off with the biggest slice of beefcake in the bracket. Saddle up, voters: it’s time to throw down.
Click here to check out the full bracket, and then vote for your favorite badass!
(#16) Indiana Jones vs. (#9) Doc Holliday
(#12) James Bond vs. (#4) John McClane
(#6) Conan vs. (#3) Hannibal Lecter

(#1) Dirty Harry vs. (#8) Batman
(#5) Jules Winnfield vs. (#13) Tony Montana
(#6) Rooster Cogburn vs. (#3) John Rambo
(#7) Lee vs. (#2) Ripley
Kurt Russell hates Scots and Spartans
Upon hearing that Scotsman Gerard Butler, who played the fearless King Leonidas in the smash hit “300,” has been cast as Snake Plissken in the upcoming remake to “Escape from New York,” the original film’s star Kurt Russell publicly disparaged the casting, commenting that the Snake character was “quintessentially one thing. And that is, American.”
To which we say: Settle down, Kurt. The guy held off the entire Persian army for days, using little more than a shield, a sword, and a diaper. We’re pretty sure he can handle a few surly Manhattanites.
