  • Toys for Tarts & David Boring

    7.0
    Gets off to a good start with the Toys for Tarts campaign. And the Afraid of the Dark sketch was also quite good. It was at least a laudable effort to attempt something as ambitious as the Apocalypse Now spoof, although inevitably it suffered a bit from the low production values. But too much of this stuff seems rather unfocused; it looks like it was all the result of too much cocaine. The MartinSheen thing at the end was quite funny anyway. Unfortunately too we are saddled with David Bowie at his most artificial and cheesy; that goofy bit of blue-screen hijinx toward the end was pretty much the high point of his act.moreless

    • Jane Curtin: This week, the New England Journal of Medicine reports that women who have intercourse during the last month of pregnancy have had babies born with infections, respiratory ailments and jaundice. The report further states that the closer intercourse is to the baby's birth, the more severe the effects. In several cases, where the mother was sexually active shortly before delivery, when the baby was born, it immediately asked for a cigarette and a towel.
