I know it's the mental equivalent of cotton candy, but I enjoy mental floss once in a while. We had been watching this for a couple of weeks when we got to last night's episode.

Turns out Frank (one of the better players in this crop) is the son of none other than Sid Vicious! They even had an interview segment where he said (paraphrasing:

"I'm Sid Eudy, Father of Frank, former WWE & WCW star, and (my emphasis) MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE".

Me: **snerk**
Wife: What's so funny?
Me: ...long story...

OK..snark aside, I was pretty impressed with his interview segment. I wasn't surprised to find out that he and his son weren't on the best terms...pretty par for the course from what we know of the wrestling life. He is, otherwise, proud of his son and came off as a very, very normal (if very large) Father.

I guess after years of seeing him in shouting, neck straining, promos it was somewhat of a shock to see him speaking in normal, coherent and complete sentences.

So...anybody else watching?

Oh I get deeply involved in this show every year.

Yea a lot of people have been talking about Sid being his dad. No one knew he had told anyone in the house yet though.

Sid seems to be doing a weekly radio interview talking about his son's current state in the house and how he thinks he's doing. I agree, it is interesting to hear him talk humbly and calmly rather than screaming.

I think in one of the interviews, Sid said he normally would never watch these types of shows, and so thinks Frank probably wonders if he's even watching with him on it. Sid said he's watched every episode, and his wife is glued to the computer watching every minute that she can of what's going on.

Sid comes across as a very proud dad when he talks about Frank.

Speaking of Big Brother, I met Eddie McGee in Montreal this week. He was in town to present the World Premiere of his new film The Human Race.

The idea of the film is that 80 people are scooped up at random from one city block and are placed into a foot race to the death.

Eddie, of course, only has one leg.

A violent and very bloody film, but worth tracking down as it does the festival circuit.

The question that I would have for Big Brother fans though - would you check this out because Eddie is in it?

My review:

"Don't Blame CANADA, Blame Yourselves!"

Whoops. I usually don't work Mondays, and when I finished up my 10-hour day yesterday, I totally forgot about the TV ratings. I'm sure you were paralyzed with confusion. THIS WEEK IN TV About 15 or 20 shows have their series finale this week.
