Tonight at 10p Killing Kennedy debuts on the National Geographic channel and you don’t want to miss this incredible two hour docudrama.
Killing Kennedy starts off during the last few months of 1969. During that time, John F Kennedy (Rob Lowe) wins his party’s vote to run for the President of the United States. Meanwhile at that same time Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar) is renouncing his US citizenship and defecting to Russia. For the next 4 years their lives will go in different paths, but on November 22, 1963 their paths will collide and neither one of them will live to see December 1963.
What happens in those four years before they die is told in such a way that you will be glued to your television sets like people were almost 50 years ago to the day. You will learn the possible motive Oswald had for shooting President Kennedy and how this shooting could’ve possibly been stopped if more people had paid attention to the warning signs.
It isn’t only about these two men, it is also about the women that stood by their sides until that fateful day. Jacqueline Kennedy (Ginnifer Goodwin) is the supporting wife, who stands by her husband’s side and the man she loves is the most powerful man in the world. Marina Oswald (Michelle Trachtenberg) is a woman who lives in Russia, meets, and marries the wrong man. When he decides he wants to return to America, she is forced to leave her life behind to be with the man she married. She is alone America and stays with her husband because she is rightfully afraid of him. Something that is very evident one day in late November 1963.
While most movies that cover the Kennedy Assassination, only cover JFK’s story and/or the days leading up to and following his death. This telemovie covers the years leading up to his murder and the days following his last breath. Because of that, it is a different take on a story we know so well. I was so amazed by how intriguing this movie was that I could barely blink because I didn’t even want to miss a split second of it. Plus it will amaze you how perfectly Rob Lowe captures John F Kennedy’s essence, you will forget that is Lowe playing him and think that one of our greatest Presidents has come back to life. When it comes to Rothhaar, he was the bad man you loved on Last Resort, but in this role he makes you hate him as Oswald should be hated.
If you have any interest of what happened to JFK on November 22, 1963, then you must watch Killing Kennedy tonight. I am promise you will not be disappointed.
At 10p, Syfy takes it all off for Naked Vegas and then covers it back up with paint, body paint that is! The reality show documents the company called Naked Vegas that uses body paint to dress people up. On tonight’s season premiere they put lingerie on models and dress a bride and groom up as Zombies along with their wedding party. Imagine seeing a bride wearing body paint from head to toe walking down the aisle. It is as breathtaking as you expect it to be.
So tune in for a show that is unlike anything you can watch on television. In addition, it has the word naked in the title!
A few weeks ago the Government shut down for two weeks and several Doomsday Preppers have been prepping for that exact moment. Tonight at 9p on NatGeo, you will see one guy prep for just that type of scenario. He will force his daughter to learn what to do when America suffers from a financial collapse and he will wind up injuring her. So much so, they rush her to the doctor.
Prepping can be a dangerous thing, but it can also prepare you for the unforeseeable. Another family in Alaska is preparing for a Tsunami, but a wildfire interrupts their plans. Will all their hard work be for nothing or are they prepared unlike everyone else who is in the fire’s path?
You have to watch to find out and to learn some things you can do to prep for a disaster. Let’s be real, it can happen anywhere at any time because it was a year ago that Sandy struck the Northeast.
Tonight at 9p National Geographic Channel asks what would happen if all the power went out in the continental United States for 10 long grueling days. During the 2 hour movie you will follow several people as they document what happens throughout the US during the American Blackout.
At first things start off normally after the cyber attack, but as the days go on things get worse and worse. Stores are gouging people for necessities like water and food. Houses are burning down because there are too many of them and not enough firefighters. In fact there are so many people that are stuck in elevators that some of them will spend the whole time in there until the power is turned back on. The people that were neighborly at the beginning of the blackout, now believe in each man for himself. People will do anything to get what they need and that means kill for it.
As the time goes on camps are opened so people who have lost everything have a place to stay. It is also there where people who lost their loved ones will try to reconnect with them. Something that was not possible because the phones have been down.
When the power comes back things slowly return to normal, well as normal as they can after everything they went through.
The biggest take away from American Blackout is that we all need to prepare for it because a disaster can strike at any moment without us knowing. That and you will be sleeping with the lights on for a few nights.
On November 22, 1963 President John F Kennedy was assassinated, and 50 years later Rob Lowe will be playing 35th President in NatGeo’s Killing Kennedy. The first photo of him in the role of a lifetime was released today, and he looks the part. So much so that if his friend JFK, Jr. was alive today, he would be proud of Lowe.
The two hour movie, that’s set to air in November, is based on Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s book Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot.
If you have ever been somewhere and been wowed by a fish tank, then you are going to be floored by Fish Tanks Kings on Nat Geo Wild tonight at 9p. Each week the people from Living Color will convert objects like a rusty VW Bus into a gorgeous colorful aquarium. You will watch them make these aquatic homes from scratch. You will see them tear apart objects to fit in the aquariums and then build them back up to be able to hold one. But what is the point of creating one if you don’t have any fish to put inside of it. We will see them go into the waters near Fort Lauderdale and catch the new residence of these fish condos. And every aquarium needs coral, they make that there too.
If you think watching fish swim in an fish tank is cool, watching that aquarium be made is even cooler. So tune in each week to watch the second season of Fish Tank Kings on Nat Geo Wild!
Tonight at 9p Doomsday Preppers is back on Nat Geo for a second season with two back to back episodes and I don’t know what scared me more, all of these calamities that they are prepping for or how fanatical they are about it. People all over the country are preparing themselves for things like a nuclear war, the return of Smallpox, a global financial collapse and an F-5 tornado to name a few catastrophes. They have built bunkers, started using their sh!t as a fertilizer, stocked up water and food, training themselves for attack and so on. I mean they seriously go all out to protect themselves against something that will most likely never happen. I have lived in Miami that has seen its fair share of hurricanes, Atlanta that has been hit by tons of tornadoes and LA that in known for earthquakes; and never once did I ever prepare for my environment. I think I have had (please stay in the past tense) a better chance of seeing a devastating disaster than these people, yet they are more prepared for it then I am and you probably are.
Now even though I think they are crazy, it did make me think that I need to get a plan in motion. Because even though I have a big cat, I am not sure how many days I could eat her before I ran out of food. I kid, she would eat me before I ate her.
But seriously Doomsday Preppers will really make you think. Especially when they evaluate all of these people after each of their segments. In the 6 (3 an ep) that air tonight, none of them would last longer than a year with all of the years they have been putting into their effort. But then again if they evaluated us, I bet we wouldn’t make it past a week.
Now I can’t not talk about the Preppers themselves. There is/are a single man, families, couples and even a 15 year old kid. Yes, there is a teenager who is so afraid of the world going to sh!t, he is bunkering up for it and he basically tells his mom he wouldn’t take her with him. Then there are the parents who are teaching their kids, one as young as four to shoot a gun just in case. Seriously? But there is some humor in tonight’s episodes when one of the couples tells the producers that since they shot the show, her husband and her are going through a messy divorce. In fact things are so ugly they are suing over who gets custody of the prepping stuff. Maybe they should’ve prepped for that instead? You have to tune in for the two episodes to see if you can figure out which couple it is.
And you have to tune in for a series that makes you think, am I prepared? As we all learned a few weeks ago, a lot of people were not prepared for Hurricane Sandy. You never know when a disaster is going to strike, so we need to have the necessary items to get through what may come. We need a happy medium between the Doomsday Preppers and what we are doing now and watching the show will get us there.
Summer family vacation time is over and if you thought your trip was bad, it ain’t nothing as compared to what happened to the people on Nat Geo Wild’s An Animal #$*% My Vacation! Tonight at 10p when you watch this show that is as brilliant as its name, you will realize that your trip wasn’t that bad. That’s because one woman got dry humped by a dolphin, another guy got a tic on his dick, while another man had a sea lion jump on lap while he was kayaking and the sea mammal thought the guy’s crotch smelled like fish. But it wasn’t only about the crotch area and animals, there was couple who was in South Africa when a baboon opened their car door and decided to jump in. But at least he remained in the back seat unlike the bear in Lake Tahoe who broke into a family’s Prius and wound up driving it away when he couldn’t get out. Oh yeah and did you know that a goat has really huge testicles when he gets excited? All of these awful holidays were caught on video and the people involved relive their tales that seem more like something out of National Lampoon’s Vacation than real life! If ever there was show that appropriate on a Labor Day, it is this one and it is just as fun as when you get home to your own bed after your awful family summer outing.
Barbie went on vacation to Cuba with her boyfriend and a dolphin got more action with her than he did. The trainer told Barbie to let the dolphin kiss her and she did. Well he took it as a sign that it was OK to come out of the water and hump her. She let him do it because what else can you do, and she paid a price for being so generous with him. According to boyfriend not only did the situation stink really bad, so did she. How many showers does one take to wash off the smell of that shame?
It is stories like this one that will make up NatGeo Wild’s An Animal #$*% My Vacation on September 3rd at 10p and I can’t wait to see what else happens to unsuspecting tourists. Watching this video made me completely disappointed because the worst thing that ever happened to me is they airline lost my luggage, and here these people can say things like a bear destroyed my Prius while I roughing it at Lake Tahoe. I need a new travel agent ASAP. Do they still have travel agents?
Maybe because UFO stands for unidentified flying objects, there is something about them that really interests me. So when I heard about Nat Geo’s Chasing UFOs, I couldn’t wait to watch this out of the world show that debuts tonight at 9p. Each episode a team of investigators will look into some of the most famous cases of UFO sightings and try to find out if they identify the unidentifiable. Ben McGee is Physical Scientist who is a skeptic, Erin Ryder does Tech and Recon and you don’t want to mess with this brave woman and finally there is self-declared UFOligist James Fox. Together the three them will go all over the world to find out if there is something out there. I will tell you after watching the first two episodes of the show that air tonight, they changed my way of thinking about flying saucers. So tune in for a show that tackles a topic we have all seen before, but in a much different way.
Today is the day we remember the soldiers who died while trying to protect us, but on National Geographic Channel we see a few of them come home and surprise their families. At 10p Witness: G.I. Homecoming shows five families’ surprise reunions after their loved ones return home from protecting our country. But isn’t just their reunions that we witness, we hear how it all came about and listen to their reactions when they see each other for the first time in a really long time. If you think that the above raw video is beyond emotional, it will make you cry even more when you hear the back story edited together with it. I cried happy tears while I watched her story and the sister who only wanted her brother at her graduation. Then there is a son who goes to his mom’s job to surprise her and his mom’s reaction will leave you grabbing for the tissues. There are a few more reunions that will tear at your heartstrings, but isn’t that what today is all about. Yes we are remember the ones that didn’t make it home, but let’s also remember the ones that do.
I want to thank all of the people who have fought and continue to fight to make us safe from harm. Thank you.
