R.I.P. Jack Klugman

Obviously, we at Fish & Spaghetti are saddened by the passing of Jack Klugman. 

I’ve been a fan of his for decades and I spent summer afternoons watching The Odd Couple, which helped shape my comic sensibilities.

Monday Munchies – Popcorn, Indiana Chocolate Peanut Butter Kettlecorn

One of the aspects of moving to New York that I was looking forward to the most as the opportunity to get to try Popcorn, Indiana’s Wasabi Popcorn.  I’ve grown to appreciate wasabi over the years and I’ve always been a fan of popcorn. It seemed like a match made in heaven.

I could never find it in Charm City, so imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t find it in the Big Apple either. Seriously, I’ve been here for almost four months and strike out at every corner. 

But I did stumble across Popcorn, Indiana’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Kettlecorn, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

Sunday Morning Quarterback – Martin Short & Paul McCartney

When this show was announced everyone joked about how the show as skewing old. And it’s a valid observation; McCartney is a musical icon who’s been a superstar for nearly five decades and Short is as a point in his career where he’s doing voiceover work for Old Navy. 

But they’re both also Saturday Night Live vets.  Short was a castmember when SNL toyed with the “big name” format and Sir Paul feels like a mainstay.  Plus with it being a holiday show, guest stars galore are expected. 

Basically, I was expecting big things from the episode.

Monday Munchies – Ben & Jerry’s Limited Batch Pumpkin Cheesecake

One of my all time favorite ice cream flavors was one that I stumbled across last year; Häagen-Dazs' Cranberry Pumpkin Spice.  It was a wonderful flavor that fully represented the holidays.  

Sadly it’s all gone now. But when I saw Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake I actually allowed myself to get a tad optimistic about the prospect of getting pumpkin back in my ice cream and that ice cream back in my mouth. 

Did it live up to my expectations?

Sunday Morning Quarterback – Jamie Foxx & Ne-Yo

Confession time; I’m not a Jamie Foxx fan.  I’ve never found the guy funny.  I’ve never seen any of his comedies.  I haven’t seen a single episode of his television show.  He was my least favorite cast-member on In Living Color, and that’s including SW-1.  He does nothing for me. 

It just always seems like he’s trying to be funny as opposed to just being funny.  It annoys me.  And that’s why I was sort of dreading Saturday Night Live’s return from it’s brief hiatus. 

So, what did I think of the episode?
