Wow. Crack me up.

THIS JUST IN —

The models on The Price Is Right and Let’s Make a Deal strike distinctively different poses with prizes!

It’s true.

price is right model poseExhibit A:  Rachel, The Price is Right

Note the ‘broken arm’ approach, open palm, hand on hip.

I think we all agree this is the traditional way to ‘Vanna’ an item.

 

 

 

 

lets make a deal model poseExhibit B:  Tiffany, Let’s Make a Deal

While Tiffany also balances her approach with the hand on hip, she elects to use a straight arm technique topped by a twisted, closed hand.

As you can see, this stance is effective both standing still or while walking across the stage as seen at left.

This just in

A few of my friends — okay, really just one, but I hate to name names — have had a lot of fun on Twitter slamming Aaron Sorkin’s new HBO series The Newsroom.

To be fair, said friend slams a lot of other shows as well, but since I happen to agree with most of those observations, I don’t take issue.

But when he repeatedly tweetslaps –and retweetslaps — The Newsroom?

I cannot stand idly by.

Now, even I will admit the pilot was an explosion of exposition and classic Sorkin sermons.  But if we wrote off every series’ first episode for being exposition-heavy, the Harry Potter movies would have ended at Sorcerer’s Stone.  

You have to establish characters before you can build relationships.  That’s a given.

For those of you lucky enough to have stuck around for Sunday night’s episode of The Newsroom, your patience was rewarded.  Fewer sermons.  More focus on the relationships in the newsroom (which, if you’ve worked in one, do blow up like that from time to time).  Even some cultural references to add to the fun.  And did a few of you shed a tear at the ending?

I’ll take that bet.

And I’ll be DVRing The Newsroom this season.  And next.
