    Same. Really admired his quick mind for a long time. Then it became, "not this same shit again..."

    Sonny has his dad's show reviewed correctly... "This is just a waste of my time."

    Exactly. I used to really like him. Now he's like a broken record. I think he's doing too many projects and spreading himself too thin. It's too bad his sitcom didn't get picked up. I think he'd be really good if allowed to do it like he wants. He'd be able to focus on that show and drop all the other bullshit.

    What are Bald Bryan's credentials in regards to movie reviews? Why should I care what he thinks? He said Grand Budapest Hotel was terrible... WTF.

    i liked his podcast when he first started it, and would tell stories of his youth, and have his old highschool buddies on it. Wonder what turned him into an even more miserable cunt?

    I like the "ace on the house" show he does with his buddy Ray better than his show.
    It's all about home repair with some stories and comedy mixed in

    They're discussing a knocked out boxer being jerked off by a man in some other country on Jay Thomas right now. But I realize Jay's not for everyone.

    I never watch those reality shows because you never know how much of it is real . But with a long list of relatives in construction and trades and my own experience, I can say that my impression is that a large part of the business is based on deception, corner cutting, and fraud. Odds are if you see someone really successful in the hands-on part of the biz they are less than 100% ethical. Even "the good ones" play games such as how they measure square footage, what they do with excess materials after your job is done, fairly unnecessary work they push, and how they deal with trying to help the customer save money. All have plausible rationalizations for their actions, but as a whole they're out to maximize profits, not be scrupiously honest.

    Example: One prominent highly respected flooring contractor touts their "family" business, "in-house installers", then subs out work to redneck zeros. After the contract is signed, of course. They order a little extra on every job, then grab the extra unopened boxes and return them for a credit. This is what passes for "craftsmen" these days.

    Bryan's a film critic in the same way he's a sound effects guy - it's simply something he's been given the opportunity to do; he has no real talent at either.

    He had a movie review podcast (Film Vault) on Adam's network a while back, but it was given the heave-ho. It's still around; I think they're on Podcast One now.

    I think Adam lets him do his Baldywood segment with the understanding that he won't use the ACS to promote the Film Vault.

    As for his reviewing skills, Bryan has terrible taste. He routinely gives glowing reviews to all the biggest, dumbest blockbusters. I saw GI Joe 2 based on his recommendation. Never again.

    He's right sometimes. Finding Vivian Maier was great, but you don't have to be a film critic to know you've enjoyed a good documentary.
