I'll have to admit that I was not planning on liking The Defenders. Not being a big fan of lawyer shows or Las Vegas, and unable to forgive Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell for their last outings (According to Jim and Do Not Disturb), I expected it to be terrible, worthless garbage. But, just as I've always secretly assumed I would like Las Vegas if I went there, the show actually entertained me. Like the city it takes place in, there's a lot of sexy behavior, and the lawyers really know how to put on a show in the courtroom, which is important for a legal Smeagol like myself.
Good afternoon and welcome to your Friday TWOP News: pre-Oscars edition. I'm sure you've all started your second-by-second Oscar countdowns, painstakingly viewed all the Best Documentary Short and Sound Mixing nominees in order place your bets most effectively, and made a shopping excursion to purchase the themed snacks you will begin eating when red carpet coverage starts at approximately 3 AM (Milk Duds, anyone?)...oh wait, that's just me? Hmmm... hmmm. While I wrap my mind around that, go ahead and wrap your minds around these delicious Friday news bites.
Visitors to the Sol system's "City of Sin," Las Vegas, will have one less place to spend their hard-won gold-pressed latinum come this fall. The Star Trek Experience, a theme restaurant, museum and tourist attraction located in the Las Vegas Hilton dedicated to all things Star Trek, will close its doors on September 1, after 10 years of waiters in Klingon costumes. First the new Star Trek movie gets delayed, and now this? What kind of God would allow something like this to happen? Also, what does God need with a starship?
