Cool Promo Ads for NBA Playoffs

I’m not a huge basketball fan, though I will watch it if it’s on – which of course it is right now because it’s the NBA playoffs! One thing I am totally loving about the playoffs though is these cool advertisements that have been playing in the breaks. There is a whole series of these promos that you can check out on youtube, but this is my favourite one below, Where Clutch Happens.

Modern Family: Finally a new family sitcom you can love

If you haven’t yet discovered the hilariousness of ABC’s Modern Family you are doing yourself a grave injustice. The show is part sitcom part mockumentary and centres around Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill), his daughter Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen), and his son Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson). Jay is married to a younger sexy Columbian woman, Gloria (Sofía Vergara) who has a young son Manny (Rico Rodriguez). Mitchell and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) are a gay couple who have adopted a Vietnamese baby called Lily. The final family is married couple Claire and Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) who have three children. The standouts for me are probably the performances of Manny (Rico Rodgriguez) whose precocious behavior is belly achingly funny and Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) whose attempts at the ‘cool dad’ leave you wincing in embarrassment. Do yourself a favour and check it out.

Lost when it comes to Lost?

The cult TV series that boasts more twists than Rapunzel’s plait is in its final season. Yes, they are finally going to wrap it all up and try and come up with a plausible  explanation and conclusion for five series and 5,000 subplots, good luck with that.  You may have already been watching the final season or as quite a few people seem to be doing, waiting until it finishes so they can pirate the full season off the net and watch it in one last Lost marathon. If you haven’t the foggiest what the hell has been going on for the last 5 seasons, and you are not the type of person to religiously watch all 5 seasons back to back on one long weekend, with the aid of a carton of red bull and 5 packs of cigarettes, then I have the answer. In 8:15 you can watch the recap of all recaps and just like that you will be up to speed, easy.
