Television, aging fast, is in trouble. Even the word sounds ancient, people now talk more and more of videos.

Dollhouse poster
The starting idea of Dollhouse, the new series of Joss Whedon, creator of cult TV series like Buffy and Firefly, is that our personality is like a computer program, a series of data we obtained during life through experiences, choices, memories. If all of these things could be erased from our brains we would stop being ourselves and become empty shells. In the show a powerful and mysterious organization has precisely the technology to do just that.

London laughs at Berlusconi

Mocktheweek_BerlusconiItaly is no longer able to make real satire, or perhaps it's satire that does not find space on television. It is nothing new, because our politicians are the main objective of irony and television is controlled by politics. A dog that bites its tail. But we don't want to talk about the relationship between the world of entertainment and the political one (and the fact there is a link explains many things) but the way they do it abroad, ironically thanks to our politics.

The final frontier of reality

finalfrontierofrealityIn Italy nobody thought about this, but sometimes you can think it would be good for the quality of journalism, especially in these sultry days.
The news (for a journalist) should be all, the speed is the basis for the scoop, but today in the fury of sensationalism what happens it does not seems to be more worthy of note. So sometimes the news is created from nothing.

Mad Men poster
Mad Men is a television series of high critical success. The protagonists work in an advertising agency of Madison Avenue in New York, in the golden age of the early Sixties. The charm of the show it's the accuracy in the reconstruction of that period, in which life and morals are still modelled on the 50's but the times are changing fast and radically.

MTVlavoratoriinsciopero180709“M.T.V. = Manda Tutti Via”: è questo lo slogan scelto dai lavoratori di Mtv che lunedì 20 luglio sciopereranno dalle 10 alle 14. Sarà la prima volta per il canale dedicato alla musica che è sbarcato nel nostro paese ormai 12 anni fa. Perché nonostante il canale sia costruito per i giovani, questa volta ha pensato di dimenticarsi proprio di loro e di licenziarli in massa.

Where is the freedom of press going?

Berlusconifreedompress220609It's a question that today has no response in Italy. In our country, for years now, nobody talks about certain trials, certain rules, certain laws. And if a newspaper chooses to do so then it becomes "Communist." Tell what happens, however, should be an essential element of journalism, not necessarily of communism. But who decides to do his job is removed (remember the "old" cases of Bulgarian edict?) or resized.

True Blood
True Blood is the new TV series by Alan Ball, creator of Six Feet Under, cynical cult series about the life of a family who run a funeral home. True Blood instead abandons realism to engage in the fantasy world of vampires and not just them, because in the show there are also characters capable of turning into animals and read minds. But this isn't a series that turns completely to fantasy, because the setting is the realistic normality of a small fictional town in Louisiana, Bon Temps.

The ugly woman who won the web with his voice  and, out of nowhere, became a star of Britain's got talent, in the end did not win. She had to settle for second place. The fairy tale was then stopped, suddenly. The Sun writes that some officers were called to intervene at the hotel where miss Boyle used to live and they took the woman into the clinic. Too much stress, Susan was emotionally exhausted.

jaylenolastshow300509He came into the tv-study, he has difficulty stopping the applause and he has not abandoned the irony even in his last episode. Last night Jay Leno gave the farewell to the "Tonight Show" after 17 years of bars. He started the show by thanking the pop star Michael Jackson and the ex stageur Monica Lewinsky for all material that had provided in recent years.
