21 Jumpstreet : Revisited

One of my favorite shows of all-time : 21 Jumpstreet. 

Happy times in Jumpstreet land....

Happy times in Jumpstreet land....

 It started the careers of Johnny Depp, Richard Grieco, and Holly Robinson.  On my all-time favorite TV show podcast, I talked about the episode “Woolie Bullies” where the Jumpstreet crew spoke about their run-ins with bullies in the past.  My favorite, Dennis Booker’s story.  Everyone is embarrassed telling their youthful stories of being terrorized by those 11-13 year olds that made their lives a livin” hell.  But Booker’s story, well, you got to see it.  It reminds me of  my very own bulley story.  In 5th grade, I dated, for like a week, one of my friends sisters.  Hey I know, 5th grade.  but I bought her a ring, etc.  But then when I broke up with her, my friend Josh kept pickin’ on me in art class.  He just wouldn’t stop.  He even had  all my friends against me.  So I did what I had to do.  I challenged him to a fight.  He had to be big and bad.  He said,”Fine, 4 o’clock after school.”  I said, “No, now.”  I popped him in the face right there in art class.  He dropped like a sack of potatoes.  Let’s just say, he was never a problem ever again.  It reminds me of the clip below.  Oh, happy times.

Thanks to Jd Man, he sent me the link of that particular scene.  Check it out below :

Our good friend  Boone (Ian Somerhalder)  in new CW show!

Here is an article by Tim Surette from TV.com :

CW splits up its Thursday night block, sending Smallville over to Friday nights.

With Clark gone, all the beer is Dean’s!

 

For the last several years, Thursdays on The CW has been etched in stone: Smallville at 8 p.m., followed by Supernatural at 9 p.m. The two seemed like a match made in heaven, thanks to their science-fiction and paranormal-driven plotlines. But business is business, and the two will now go their separate ways.

The CW is breaking up the couple that’s been together since March 2006, with Supernatural getting the time period in the divorce. Smallville will now air on Friday nights, and Supernatural will stay put on Thursdays, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Moving into Smallville‘s old digs will be the newbie The Vampire Diaries, one of the network’s biggest freshman shows. And with Vampire star Ian Somerhalder leading into Supernatural‘s Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, it could be a teen girl’s dream.

The move makes sense for The CW, as Supernatural and Smallville are now strong enough to help other shows. But Thursday is a bloodbath, with The Mentalist, Fringe, and Flash Forward moving into the night that already includes Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, and The Office. Total TiVo explosion.

The CW is also expected to pair up Melrose Place with 90210 on Tuesdays, and The Beautiful Life with America’s Next Top Model on Wednesdays. Expect an official announcement tomorrow at The CW’s upfront presentation.
