I honestly think Prince would be a great as Huggy Bear in a Starsky and Hutch remake. Honest! All that and more in today’s High 5:
WELL …., DUH: I saw an interesting headline the other day about whether or not you can be “born” a couch potato. I can say, without the slightest hesitation, yes.
LOOKING AHEAD: While watching the Monday Night Football game between the Patriots and Saints I was thinking … Super Bowl preview? I’m not so sure about the Patriots, but the Saints look mighty strong and I don’t see anyone in the NFC that will stop them in the playoffs. And don’t even think about playing that Dallas Cowboys card.
TELEVISION SHOW THAT DESERVES A COMEBACK: Starsky and Hutch. I would cast Matthew McConaughey as Starsky, Owen Wilson as Hutch and Prince as Huggy Bear. (Or possibly Luke Wilson as Starsky.)
ANTICIPATION: I’m really looking forward to the new TBS comedy/drama Men Of A Certain Age with Ray Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula. It looks both real-to-life and hilarious, a combination that is normally difficult to put together. My gut feeling says Romano and Braugher will be outstanding and Bakula will be the weakest link of the three.
QUESTION: For the most part, how come the majority of the best TV programs are now found on Fox and cable? Think about it. Feel free to drop me a line.
