‘Kingdoms’ a new type of faerie tale Other Kingdoms by Richard Matheson; Tor, 2011; 320 pages; $24.99

By Douglass K. Daniel Associated Press

After witnessing the horrors of the trenches of the Great War, 18-year-old Alex White faces a different kind of terror in the countryside of Northern England: faeries. It’s the wee people living deep in the forest, not the Boche with their bullets and bayonets, who threaten the young American. Protecting him is an unlikely ally, Magda, a witch old enough to be his mother. Then there’s the lithe Ruthana, with her cream-colored skin and golden hair, only 3 feet tall but big enough to kiss Alex’s lips and steal his heart. Too bad that her brother Gilly has despised human beings ever since a hunter shot and killed his shape-shifting father. And Magda, it turns out, has a dark side herself. Author Richard Matheson makes it all seem believable as well as compelling, at least enough so that readers of his new novel, Other Kingdoms, can identify with Alex’s fears, hopes and regrets.

The fantastical has long been Matheson’s kingdom. He has found his widest audience with memorable teleplays for television’s The Twilight Zone and with movies adapted from his novels I Am Legend, What Dreams May Come and Somewhere in Time. In this new tale, he wraps the fantastic around themes that recur in his work: the joy of love, the pain of loss and the longing for a chance to make things right. Other Kingdoms is written from the perspective of a writer — a typical Matheson protagonist — looking back on events that he still doesn’t quite understand. At 82, roughly Matheson’s own age, the elderly Alex is an annoying storyteller at times (too many asides), but so wonderfully eccentric that it’s difficult to want to tell him to stop. Faerie lore suggests that different types have different abilities — human beings would call them tricks. Matheson himself is a literary faerie of sorts, his trick being his ability to coax us off a story’s familiar pathway to take us deep and deeper into his world until we accept what we instinctively reject. Those open to imagining such things couldn’t ask for a better guide.

The problem with ‘Glee’ In season one of Glee, I told a friend that the show will be defined by how it advances past the popularity problem that plagues the Glee Club kids. It seemed that through the entire first season the kids were entering and leaving Glee club based on how they felt that day, but there was a plot that made sense, and the characters did things that were Bobby consistent with the Bozeman type of character they were. There Pop was even some Cultured character growth, even if it was just with Quinn and Kurt’s father, Burt. Those moments of growth were some of the most rewarding aspects of the show. Watching these kids grow up a little bit over a season, mixed with some fun and absurdly fantastical dance numbers, made Glee worth watching. It wasn’t great TV, but it was pretty good and it was fun, and at times very heart warming. And at the end of the first season when Sue votes for the Glee Club at regionals, you would think we had turned a corner or at least defined her character a little bit. However season two comes along and what these characters are and their potential for growth has broken down considerably. Now it seems like every episode has a “very special episode” theme where they deal with — but never actually deal with — a hot topic, controversial subject. That would be forgivable because they will eventually run out of controversial subjects, but the real problems are in how sloppy they install these plots into the main storyline and character arcs by completely destroying all past continuity each week. For instance, Tuesday’s episode focused all on sex and sex education, so the show starts off with Rachel and Quinn in the Celibacy Club led by guidance counselor Emma. Now comes the development that Emma — despite having been married for four months now — is still a virgin. Now, yes, she is an OCD germaphobe, but last we really saw her and

But now she has transformed into a 30year-old woman who doesn’t have sex because the show needs her to not have sex for their overly convoluted plot-of-the-week. Not to mention that I don’t think very many husbands are going to be that patient, and would at least seek some kind of counseling or therapy before the four-month mark. Also, this marks the second time that Emma has been married and all signs point to her getting out of this marriage as well. When the show does keep consistency with its now very shaky

continuity, it works great. Again in Tuesday’s episode, Kurt’s father and Blaine have a nice moment where Blaine tells Burt that despite him being uncomfortable about his son’s sexuality, he needs to give him “the talk.” And when Burt and Kurt finally do have “the talk,” it’s a really touching, nice moment that highlights the steady, consistent growth both characters have had over the course of two seasons. It will be interesting see how Glee progresses. Because I really do like it, and I want it to be good and not just a show consistently conforming to the whims of what the writers want each week — like writing their own songs.

Yoshiki seeks global rock glory for X Japan By Yuri Kageyama Associated Press

TOKYO — Yoshiki has sold more than 30 million records. Concerts by his heavy metal band X Japan pack stadiums. Everywhere he goes, he is trailed by screaming fans. But that’s just being big in Japan. Yoshiki has his eyes on bigger horizons: fame in the global music industry. It’s not enough he has his share of followers in neighboring China, Taiwan and South Korea. What he wants is stardom in the U.S., the home of rock ‘n’ roll. “I want to be a household name,” Yoshiki told The Associated Press in a recent interview. “If you’re going to do something, there is nothing but reaching the very top.” A Los Angeles resident for more than a decade, Yoshiki, 45, has carefully planned his international debut, studying not only the Western music scene but also the English language. A new album of X Japan hits — tailormade for American listeners, with lyrics translated into English and the tracks heavier on the bass — is set for release this year, complete with a U.S. tour. Last year, X Japan made its American performance debut at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, alongside established artists including Lady Gaga and Green Day. Still, Yoshiki, whose surname is Hayashi but goes by one name, knows he is aiming for a success that has long eluded Japanese pop artists. The only exception has been Kyu Sakamoto, whose hit song “Sukiyaki” topped the 1963 Billboard charts. No one has come close since. Acts such as Puffy and Shonen Knife drew some attention, but mostly for their quirkiness. Yoshiki believes X Japan’s chances for international glory have never been so good, given the foreign interest in frilly “costume-play” fashions, “manga” comic books and animation — all key parts of so-called “cool Japan” cultural exports. So, can X Japan join sushi, video games and Hello Kitty as a Japanese gift to the world? Are Americans ready for X Japan? “I’m not sure,” said Yoshiki, who is soft-spoken and polite offstage, hiding behind dark glasses, in contrast to his fierce, trancelike stage persona. “In the U.S., anything can happen. I think we have a chance.” X Japan was founded in 1982, when

Dido talks about becoming a mom, new album By Nekesa Mumbi Moody Associated Press

Shizuo Kambayashi/Associated Press

Yoshiki, a member of Japanese heavy metal band X Japan, performs during the Asia Girls Explosion fashion event in Tokyo. Yoshiki was still in high school. The band went on to pioneer an entire genre in Japan called “visual rock,” characterized by doll-like makeup, flashy costuming and spiky, colorful hair. X Japan disbanded in 1997, but has periodic comeback concerts. Yoshiki, who started studying piano when he was 5 and drumming at 10, writes the X Japan scores, which juxtapose pensive balladic moments with the frantically throbbing beat and energy of rock. American musician Marilyn Manson compares Yoshiki with rock icons like Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop and David Bowie. “They can make it wherever they want,” Mason told the AP when asked of X Japan’s chances for success outside Japan. “His music is very, very strong. It is important. It is very American.” Izumi Narita, an 18-year-old high school student from suburban Tokyo, is another believer. “There is no other band like X Japan,” she said. “It’s fantastic how Yoshiki stoically pursues what he believes in, without ever compromising.” Less optimistic is pop music critic Steve McClure, the former Tokyo bureau chief for Billboard magazine, who doubts X Japan’s appeal can extend beyond a niche audience. “Good luck to Yoshiki. But don’t hold your breath,” he said. To duplicate the kind of fame Yoshiki has achieved in Japan would be a challenge for anyone. He has glossed the covers of dozens

of magazines. He has his own line of jewelry, his own video game, his own wine. At a recent fashion show, he showed “Yoshikimono,” a punk-inspired kimono. Former Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi is among his fans. When X Japan guitarist Hideto Matsumoto, 33, nicknamed Hide, was found dead in his apartment from an apparent suicide in 1998, the nation went into mourning. A teenager died in one of several copycat suicide attempts that followed. Over the years, Yoshiki has expanded into producing bands for his label Extasy Records, and writing movie scores such as Saw IV. In 1999, he wrote and performed a classical piano composition for Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko. Yoshiki acknowledges that if he becomes famous in the West, he might miss the anonymity he now enjoys in the U.S. to go grocery shopping without getting mobbed by fans. “I’ll deal with it when I get there,” he said. Fame is important because music saved him, Yoshiki says. The root of his creative drive is a hidden rage inside, the anger and loneliness he felt growing up, not understanding why his father committed suicide when Yoshiki was 10, leaving him, his mother and his brother. “I had nowhere to turn” except for music, Yoshiki said. “Then, I realized there was no need to suppress my feelings in music. Music is wonderful. I want to help others, too, and give back to music.”

NEW YORK — Dido doesn’t know the sex of her baby, but she’s not going wait until her due date to find out. “I’m too curious,” the British singersongwriter said in a recent interview. “It’s enough of a surprise on the day.” Dido is due to have her first child this summer. It’s already been a big year: She was nominated for an Academy Award for best song for co-writing “If I Rise” from the movie 127 Hours, and is finishing up a new album. “I’m nearly done,” she said last month about her upcoming album. “Music will just start coming out as this year goes on.” Dido, perhaps best known stateside for the song “Thank You,” which was sampled by Eminem for “Stan,” said her new record brings her back to her electronic roots. She’s once again working with her brother, Rollo Armstrong, as well as other producers. “It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable record,” she said. “It’s a real mix and in a funny sort of way, it’s a mix of everything, some sort of big electronic extravaganza. It’s much more electronic than the last record.” Safe Trip Home, which was released in 2008, was Dido’s last studio album. She’s more eager to perform in front of fans with her new album. “... I didn’t want to tour that record for a really long time, partly because it was a really dark record and stuff, whereas this record, apart from anything, there’s a lot of really fun stuff on this record,” the 39-yearold said. Of course, before Dido goes on the road, she’ll be dealing with her first priority: her new baby. She didn’t perform at the Oscars because of her pregnancy, and after the baby is born, she plans to take time off. But for the moment, she’s enjoying the “very exciting” time in her life. “There’s a real calmness about it which I think is really nice. Your decisions are sort of made for you,” she said, laughing. “You just have this priority that is unchangeable and I think that’s a great calmness that comes from that.”

Baseball Project bats better than .500 By Steven Wine Associated Press

Nam Y. Hug/Associated Press

Sara Evans sings ‘God Bless America’ during the seventh-inning stretch at the MLB All-Star baseball game in St. Louis, Tuesday, July 14, 2009. Her new CD, ‘Stronger,’ was released this week.

Sara Evans struggles on new CD ‘Stronger’ By Michael Mccall Associated Press

Sara Evans, Stronger (RCA/Sony Nashville) In the liner notes for Sara Evans’ new CD, she thanks “everyone for waiting so patiently on me to make this record.” Indeed, it’s been six years since the Missouri-born singer’s last album. As celebrity-gossip followers know, she dealt with drastic life changes over those years. In 2007, she divorced her first husband, politician Craig Schelske, amid allegations of cheating on both sides; she quit the TV series “Dancing with the Stars” mid-season to deal with the revelations. She then married a former star college quarterback, Jay Barker, uniting their seven kids under one roof after moving from Nashville to Alabama. So, predictably, Evans’ new song

trumpets renewal and strength. However, the anthemic songs fall flat: On the fist-pumping “A Little Bit Stronger” and the spiritually inclined “Desperately,” Evans sounds oddly detached and the arrangements sound overly dramatic. But once she gets past the frontloaded survivor songs, she settles into layered tunes that better reveal her strengths. The multi-dimensional “My Heart Can’t Tell You No,” about a woman who doesn’t fully break from the man who hurt her, and the breezy “Anywhere” bring out a verve in Evans’ husky voice that is absent from the big showcase tunes. CHECK OUT THIS TRACK: On “Alone,” the album’s most powerful ballad, Evans conveys the knotty emotions of telling a lover she loves his attentiveness and devotion—but she needs him to understand that, on occasion, she needs time to herself, too.

The Baseball Project, Vol. 2: High and Inside (Yep Roc) Vol. 2 from The Baseball Project is much like Vol. 1: hit and miss. The lineup of Steve Wynn, Scott McCaughey, Peter Buck and Linda Pitmon again rocks out to original tunes about the national pastime. The lyrics sometimes read like clunky prose written by baseball geeks, and a few musical choices are odd (a klezmerstyle lament about Tony Conigliaro?). Still, the band bats better than .500, thanks to considerable help off the bench. One especially lusty cut is a witty tribute to the Twins sung by the Hold Steady’s Craig Finn and titled “Don’t Call Them Twinkies.” Also pitching in are Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo and Steve Berlin of Los Lobos.

As with the band’s debut release in 2008, the subject matter is eclectic. The Bird is the word on “1976,” which remembers the late Mark “The Bird” Fidrych, and “Ichiro Goes to the Moon” is a rollicking piece of bubblegum that suggests the Mariners’ right fielder can do anything he wants. Several songs sympathize with muchmaligned players from the past, among them Pete Rose, Roger Clemens and Bill Buckner. For some fans, the biggest beef will be the focus on the American League, particularly the Red Sox and Yankees. Can we please get a Cubs tune on Vol. 3? CHECK THIS OUT: The closing song “Here Lies Carl Mays” is the band’s best yet, an acoustic ballad about the Yankee who threw the only fatal pitch in bigleague history. When McCaughey recalls a World Series where Mays “pitched three complete games with an ERA of 1.73,” he manages to make even the recitation of statistics poignant.

Johnson incorporates a few “big bad wolf” gags that fall utterly flat here. The dialog is cut-and-paste “Promise me you’ll be careful” pabulum and the like. Hardwicke bathes her characters in the comfy backlit glow of a glamor photo, but none of the performances pop off the screen. Young Irons stands out as almost amateurish, never knowing quite how to convey what’s on the page onto his face. Even the reliably hammy Oldman seems lost without having better lines to say or scenes to play. But Seyfried and Fernandez click as a couple and Hardwicke showcases them to good effect. The woodsy, realistic fantasy setting is striking, as is the resemblance between Madsen, Christie and Seyfried, who really could be from one big beautiful blonde family. And the fights, though predictably structured and shot, pay off. Remembering her earlier films thirteen, Lords of Dogtown and The Nativity Story, and hearing of how Hardwicke was shown the door from the superlucrative Twilight film franchise she launched, makes one wish better things for one of the few successful female filmmakers in Hollywood. But her Red Riding Hood is far more grim than Grimm, and not nearly as much fun as it should have been.

LOS ANGELES — Director Catherine Hardwicke made Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner household names when she cast the trio of young actors in Twilight in 2008. Now she hopes to work her same star-making magic with Red Riding Hood. Amanda Seyfried plays Valerie, a young woman betrothed to one man but in love with another. Newcomers Shiloh Fernandez and Max Irons play her two would-be lovers in the fantasy tale set in a medieval village that’s haunted by a werewolf. Though Seyfried has appeared in more than a dozen films, Irons and Fernandez have just a handful of acting credits each. The 25-year-old actress says Hardwicke has “an eye for casting and she has an eye for chemistry.” “When she sees two people connect, she becomes your biggest fan she wants to take that and make that into something beautiful,” Seyfried says. “I think she saw that with Rob (Pattinson) and Kristen (Stewart) and she has been very vocal about that. When she first saw Shiloh (Fernandez) and me do our chemistry read, she saw something and I saw something.” Hardwicke, 55, also launched careers for Nikki Reed, who co-wrote and starred in Thirteen and went on to appear in the Twilight series, and Emile Hirsch, a star of Lords of Dogtown whose credits now include starring roles in Into the Wild and Milk. “It’s very fun for me,” Hardwicke says. “If people have this talent or this goal, things that they are working toward that if you can give them a chance or give them a voice ... I love the idea of helping them get there.” Hardwicke also works with young writers. “A 22-year-old friend of Nikki’s and mine wrote the (Red Riding Hood) novel, which got on the New York Times best seller list ... so whatever the person’s talent is, I love the idea of helping them get there.” “She’s got a knack for it,” says Gary Oldman, who plays a veteran werewolf hunter in Red Riding Hood. “She kind of understands this coming-ofage and teenage-angle angst,” he says. “And she is very good at casting.” Fernandez, one of the main love interests in the film, was almost cast in Robert Pattinson’s role in Twilight. “Thank God he wasn’t,” Seyfried says, “so he could be in our movie.”

‘Mars Needs Moms’ kid-friendly, but slow mars needs moms HH1/2 rating: PG for sci-fi action and peril Running time: 1:29 Starring: The voices of Seth Green, Joan Cusack, Dan Fogler and Elisabeth Harnois By Roger Moore The Orlando Sentinel

You’ll want to stay through the closing credits of the new motion capture animated adventure Mars Needs Moms, a film from the people who gave us The Polar Express. There are four minutes of clips of the real-live cast of the film, Seth Green, Joan Cusack and Dan Fogler among them, wearing the mo-cap suits, dots covering their faces so that the sensors can digitally mimic their movements, actions and facial reactions as they act out what’s going to be animated. It’s fascinating and also the lightest and funniest part of this film, based on a novel by Bloom County creator Berkeley Breathed. Though light enough in tone,

He is surrounded by hordes of goofy, dreadlocked outcasts from Mars society whom he can understand (he’s built a translator) but can’t communicate with. Milo has mere hours to convince Gribble to help rescue his mother before her brain is cooked, hours to find and meet a Martian graffiti artist (Elisabeth Harnois) in revolt against the regimented, colorless matriarchy of Mars. Director Simon Wells worked on Prince of Egypt and The Time Machine and is right at home with the endless digital chases, shootouts and such. He and his animators also deliver a couple of those big emotional moments that gave Up and Toy Story 3 their pathos. But laughs? He doesn’t do well with the ones the script sets up. It all makes for an intricate if slow and somewhat humorstarved early Mother’s Day present in which a boy learns just how much his mom means to him on the Red Planet. Mars Needs Moms, but Milo needs Mom even more.

Aliens make ugly in ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ battle: los angeles H1/2 rating: PG-13 for sustained and intense sequences of war violence and destruction, and for language. Running time: 1:56 Starring: Aaron Eckhart, Ne-Yo, Michelle Rodriguez, Michael Pena, Bridget Moynahan By Jake Coyle Associated Press

Disaster films will really get interesting when they start running out of iconic skylines to destroy. How about Battle: Wichita or Deep Impact: Albany? Battle: Los Angeles doesn’t rely as much as its genre brethren on the gleeful horror of seeing familiar landmarks burn. (We don’t even get a shot of the “Hollywood” sign in flames.) Instead, this West Coast version of alien invasion distinguishes itself as an urban warfare film and a patriotic advert for the Marines. Like so many of these films, Battle: Los Angeles opens on urgent news reports announcing that “the world is at war.” CNN snippets are laced throughout the movie, and it’s easy to see their function in relaying exposition. But it’s rather terrifying to think that even extra-terrestrials can’t stop the 24/7 stream of cable news. The date is Aug. 12, 2011. Alien ships, first appearing like a cluster of meteors, “breach” the Earth and quickly make their violent intentions clear, shooting gun-like weapons and discharging flying mechanical droids. One of the 12 ships lands just off the shore of L.A.’s laid-back Santa Monica. The film flashes back 24 hours to introduce the handful of Marines whom we will follow into battle. Staff Sergeant Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) is retiring after a particularly rough mission only vaguely referred to. Though it’s his last day, the weary veteran is dispatched to assist a platoon of young Marines (Ne-Yo, Cory Hardrict among them) expecting to head to Afghanistan. We get brief visions of their soon-tochange lives, all in various stages of heterosexual development: one is a virgin, another engaged, another with a pregnant wife. It’s the first hint that director Jonathan Liebesman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) and screenwriter Chris Bertolini are most interested in a conventional war film. All the hallmarks are here, with handheld cameras and rousing, “ooh-

Once the aliens have landed, the unit is sent into Santa Monica with the seemingly inconsequential task of rescuing a handful of civilians (Bridget Moynahan, Michael Pena) trapped at a police station. They’re told to “kill anything that’s not human,” which can be a challenging distinction even on Santa Monica’s best days. Masked in a haze or jumping from rooftops, the aliens aren’t seen straight on for some time. When we eventually do get a good look at them, they aren’t anything special. Above all else, the audience demands unique extra-terrestrials in such a movie: a radical set of fangs, at least, or some new, ravishing variation of antennae. As the marines make their way through

the wreckage and various skirmishes with the aliens, great care is taken to portray military hierarchy. In command is Lieutenant William Martinez (Ramon Rodriguez), whom Nantz guides as a subordinate advisor. There’s great trepidation among the platoon for Nantz, who’s rumored to have led several of his men into death. But Nantz keeps the group focused and grounded, much as the talented Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Thank You For Smoking) does for the film. With a square jaw and reluctant eyes, Eckhart fits the part well, and does a great deal to keep Battle: Los Angeles engaging. He and Liebesman manage to pull off the ultra-seriousness for much of the film, before a laughable speech of teary-eyed

inspiration finally does them in. In times of great terrorist concerns, there’s obvious comfort in depicting a war with such a clear-cut enemy: If we can’t straighten out Afghanistan, at least we can kick some alien behind. The spectacle of disaster is oddly lacking throughout. At one point, our jaws are supposed to drop for an obliterated freeway onramp. There’s also little sense of Los Angeles: No terrified actors running from set, no jokes that a sophisticated subway system would have really come in handy with aliens buzzing overhead. Instead, the movie stays surprisingly close to the ground, bogged down in blockby-block combat. Los Angeles traffic triumphs again. (In reality, 90 percent of the film was shot in low-tax Louisiana.)

Neil Berg brings 100 years of Broadway to Oxford Civic Center By Brett Buckner Special to the Star

John Bruno/Special to The Star

ABOVE: Performer Danny Zolli sings during the ‘100 Years of Broadway’ show, which will be at the Oxford Civic Center March 18. CENTER: Producer Neil Berg chats with the crowd during a performance. RIGHT: Carter Calvert sings during a performace.

These are the songs we know by heart. Songs that are forever on our minds — constantly breaking through without rhyme or reason — drifting through our memories like the images of distant loved ones. Songs we sing in the shower, or alone in our car. They are what we hum while walking through the mall or just as we teeter on the brink of sleep. If to hear good music is to be homesick for a place we’ve never known, then for those who love Broadway, these are the songs that lead us there. And on March 18, that path leads straight to the Oxford Civic Center, where renowned producer Neil Berg will bring his 100 Years of Broadway show. Hosted by the Oxford Arts Council, this musical revival brings to the stage Broadway’s most beloved songs performed by five of the stars who helped make them famous — all while being backed by a New York City band with

Berg playing piano and adding accompanying vocals. From Cats and Mamma Mia! to Les Misérables and Man of La Mancha and even a Grease medley, 100 Years of Broadway promises to strike a chord, explains Theresa Haynes, treasurer for

the Oxford Arts Council. “These are the songs that everyone can relate to and remember,” she says. “Everybody — no matter what their ages — has heard most of them, and they don’t need to have even seen a musical to appreciate just how good

they really are.” But for as much as the songs will take center stage, it will also be the Broadway stars themselves who are sure to inspire endless rounds of applause. Joining Berg on stage during the March 18 performance will be: Carter Calvert, who sang “Fever” eight times a week in the Tony-nominated musical It Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues, first at the Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theatre and then at the Ambassador Theatre on Broadway; Robert DuSold, who’s performed in Jekyll & Hyde and Les Misérables; Andrea Rivette, who appeared in Miss Saigon and Jekyll & Hyde; performer and Tony Award-nominated chorographer Ted Levy; and Danny Zolli, who has toured the world portraying Jesus, Judas and Annas in more than 19 productions of Jesus Christ Superstar. With such a set list, 100 Years of Broadway could serve as the perfect introduction to musicals for the younger generation, especially those familiar with a TV show that’s helped revive show tunes, Haynes says.

100 years of broadway When: Friday, March 18, 7:30 p.m. Where: Oxford Civic Center, 401 Mccullars Lane, Oxford How much: Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door Contact: For more information, visit www.oxfordartscouncil.org or call 256832-0000 “With Glee being so popular and how young people love that show, this is absolutely perfect,” she says. “And they might discover they know a lot of these songs from the show and not know where they really came from.” For all the excitement this show promises to fans of Broadway, it’s something a bit more practical that makes Haynes particularly proud. “We try really hard to keep the cost down,” she says. “Not everyone can afford a trip to Birmingham or Atlanta to see this kind of show, but this way it’s something that absolutely everyone can enjoy.” Contact Brett Buckner at brett.buckner@yahoo.com

His favorite Tosh segment is “I’m Better Than You, Na-Na-Na Boo, Stick Your Head in Doo Doo.” “Nearly everything that Daniel Tosh says or does makes me and my family laugh,” Gunther said. Comedy Central, owned by Viacom Inc., is smiling too. The show costs less than $400,000 per episode to produce, about onefifth the cost of a network sitcom. Tosh, 35, who shuns most media interviews and declined to comment for this story, is becoming one of Comedy Central’s “franchise players” along with Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. Sunday, the network ran an hour-long special of his stand-up act called Daniel Tosh: Happy Thoughts and plans to pick up the show for additional seasons. The special attracted 3.2 million viewers, making it the network’s highest-rated premiere for a stand-up act among young men. Neal Tiles, president of rival network G4, which has a video clip show called Web Soup, acknowledged the format is not original. Amateurs caught in embarrassing circumstances have been fodder for TV shows including America’s Funniest Home Videos, Real People and People Do the Craziest Things, to name a few. To make the concept resonate with the Facebook and Twitter crowd, including video game players, producers lubricated Tosh.0 with the oil of the Internet: sarcasm and ridicule. “Today’s gamers are a slightly cynical, seen-it-all-before generation,” Tiles said. Unlike their parents, TV is not their medium of choice. “We really have to go out of our way to get these guys to come to the TV set. We are doing more than asking them to simply change the channel. We are asking them to change their behavior.”

don’t know whether or not they will return to TV. They are Leverage, Rizzoli & Isles and Warehouse 13. A: All three will be back with new episodes this summer. Warehouse 13, by the way, is adding a new character for its third season. Aaron Ashmore (Jimmy Olsen on Smallville) will play Steve Jinks, a young ATF agent with an innate ability to detect when someone is lying. Q: Can you tell me the name of the blonde actress that played with Clint Eastwood in Hang ‘Em High? Was she the same actress who played the German girl that Telly Savalas killed in The Dirty Dozen? A: The leading lady in Hang ‘Em High, a 1968 Eastwood Western, was Inger Stevens, a movie and TV actress best known as the star of the TV version of The Farmer’s Daughter. She was not in 1967’s The Dirty Dozen. Stevens died in 1970. Q: OK, what happened to the NBC show Undercovers? Please don’t tell me that another black, successful show went

down the drain. A: Down it went. The NBC drama, which starred Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Rawas as married spies, was not successful enough for the network. TV Squad noted that it started with a little more than 8.5 million viewers, and had dropped to 5.45 million viewers by the time it was canceled. Production ended after 13 episodes. I leave it to you to decide whether the mass audience just did not accept a show starring an attractive, sophisticated AfricanAmerican couple. It may just be that the show wasn’t that good. I tried it more than once and never got hooked. Do you have a question or comment about movies, TV and other popular culture?
