CHICAGO – The awesomeness of history loses any of its stuffiness with the incredibly fun, indeed educational show “Drunk History” from Comedy Central, its two seasons now released on DVD. Hosted by its creator Derek Waters, the show is a celebration of various historic figures and their under-appreciated true tales, as expressed by funny people narrating in the universal language of inebriation; their recounts are then reenacted by famous actors working with their given dialogue, dressed with the comic cheapness of a bloated biopic.
CHICAGO – TV news icons don’t come much bigger than Mike Wallace, the legendary CBS News reporter and fixture for decades on the network’s hit “60 Minutes.” CBS just reported on their morning news program on April 8, 2012 that he has passed away at the age of 93. Details on his death are minimal at this point but his influence will be felt for many years to come.
CHICAGO – The television journalism world lost a titan on Nov. 4, 2011 when Andy Rooney – the irascible pundit on the long-running TV news magazine “60 Minutes” – died at the age of 92.
DVD Rating: 5.0/5.0
