5.0 out of 5 stars Well done! I'm really impressed!, April 23, 2013
I enjoyed this one -- very cerebral; the look and feel was more akin to what you might find on IFC, Showtime or HBO. Add to that, cameos from Bill Murray, Haley Joel Osment & Stephen Colbert and you've got a solid episode. If this show can keep this level of humor and intensity, you've got a definite winner on your hands!

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of good bandwidth, April 23, 2013
This show is beyond bad. If I had paid money for this, I'd demand my money back. The writing is awful, the acting is worse. Please, please don't produce more episodes of this.

Just found this stuff - it's amazing! I've wanted some of this to put on veggies, popcorn and chips for-freakin-ever! Great flavor and not overpowering!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Serge Storms Experience continues, February 28, 2010
I've been a fan of the Serge Storms Experience going all the way back to Florida Roadkill. It's an annual rite of winter for me, and brings some laugh-out-loud fun to some long cold nights.

In this one, Serge heads to that other annual Florida rite -- Spring Break, and not only Spring Break in Panama City that college students all over the eastern third of the country (and MTV) flock to every year, but they go back to the Spring Break of my college days in Daytona Beach, and even venture further south to Fort Lauderdale. It wouldn't be part of the Experience if Coleman wasn't along for the ride, and in Gator A-Go-Go, Coleman is front and center, and in his element -- surrounded by booze and drugs -- as well as idolized by legions of college kids who are taking notes (notes!) the entire way.

Other Serge Storms Experience mainstays show up -- the intrepid Detective Mahoney (who in my mind's eye looks like Leslie Nielsen's Frank Drebbin), the geriatric G-Unit (the blue hairs this time are leather-clad and on motorcycles), City and Country, and even the accidental virgin, Johnny Vegas.

Serge's sense of justice is just as wicked and vicious as ever, and you'll find yourself cheering for his inventive ways of dealing death to those who cross him (yes. I know that's sick, but when you become a Serge-ophile, it actually makes sense).

The only thing keeping this from five stars is a slightly disjointed intro chapter that may leave you a little confused as they back into the action. (if I could get away with 4 1/2 stars, I'd do it)

If you've never partaken in any of the manic books in the Serge Storms Experience, do yourself a favor -- go back to the beginning and read Florida Roadkill and come forward in the series. There are plenty of inside jokes and references to prior novels in Gator A-Go-Go. By the third novel, you'll find yourself casting the characters, and realizing that only a director as manic as perhaps Quentin Tarantino can do justice to Serge and his ways.

On the other hand, if you are a veteran of the Serge Storms Experience, join Serge and Coleman in their old Dodge Challenger for yet another wild trek across the Sunshine State with dead bodies, drunk college kids, the FBI, and the accidental virgin in their wake. While you laugh out loud on the bus, everyone around you will wonder if you're crazy...and in this case, that's a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Missing Score Album, February 27, 2003
This is the soundtrack album for "Miami Vice" that should have been released 15 years ago.
It contains most of the music from Jan Hammer's defacto "Miami Vice" score, "Escape from Television" on disc 1, but the real treasure is on disc 2 - nearly all of the music there is previously unreleased in the US, and conveys the flavor of the quintessential 80's television series.
You know the story by now, but the style of "Miami Vice" set the stage for action television and movies of today. Jump cuts, strong musical tracks, noir-driven sequences; all mainstays of contemporary shows like "CSI" and "ER" have "Miami Vice" to thank for setting the table.
This set lets you feel the wind in your hair, hear the roar of the Ferrari motor and recall the question: "How would you like a career in Southern law enforcement?"

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what Monty Python's comedy hath wrought..., April 3, 2001
"Father Ted" is brilliantly written, wonderfully acted, and definitely one of the funniest sitcoms of all time. Father Ted, Father Dougal and Father Jack are assigned to a distant parish on an island off the coast of Ireland. The trio get into one adventure after another, with lots of irony and hilarity with each episode. Probably the saddest and most unfortunate irony of the series is that "Father Ted" lead actor Dermot Morgan died one day after filming the final episode of the series in 1998. If you have had the opportunity to catch the series on BBC America, then you already know what everyone else should know -- buy this video!
