Ebert returns

Film critic Roger Ebert returns to TV with facial prosthesis.
Good for him. I have not read or watched all that much of his work (it was not generally exported to Europe), but what I did catch was really good.

Another article.
The show is necessary in today's entertainment world, Ebert says. "Can you think of another TV show that deals with the movies as movies instead of as celebrity showcases?"

I bet.

That's a bad move. Not because of his illness or the prothesis but because the show was never the same after Siskel died. They were a great team.

I highly recommend Mr. Ebert's blog:

Nothing in the world is permanent, and we're foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we're still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy. -- W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965), The Razor's Edge, 1943
