Kent Street Pizza (in the space formerly occupied by Mr. Big Pizza at Kent and Prince) makes good pizza: thin crust, good ingredients, friendly phone staff. A little too much cheese on our test pizza, but we’ll ask them to adjust that next time.
Century City, the new legal drama on CBS set in 2030, is interesting, but I think they’re going to run out of interesting “future legal issue” plotlines before a single season is over. Suggestion to producers: if you’re trying to convince us that it’s 2030, don’t cast Hector Elizondo and Donnelly Rhodes.
TLC aka The Learning Channel, is now almost completely home renovations shows. In prime time you’d be hard pressed to see something that’s not Trading Spaces, While You Were Out, or some variation thereof. Prediction: in the next 24 months TLC will spin off a new channel, called “The Renovation Channel,” that plays nothing else but.
The Formosa Tea House in its new location is a rousing success. The Rice Topping (vegetables and mushrooms over rice) is the star of the new menu. The space is open and bright. New staff are nice. And the Wasabi Peas are back (25 cents a pack at the front counter).
The Taj Mahal, the Indian restaurant on University Ave., is now scheduled to open in April rather than June.
You can fly JetBlue from Denver to Boston for $79US. This is crazy.
You can take the Fung Wah Bus from Boston to New York for $10US. This is crazy too.
Prediction: within 12 months at least one hotel or B&B on Prince Edward Island will offer guests an optional goldfish in tank for the duration of their stay.
This House Has 22 Minutes is no longer funny. Monday Report is funny.
Bruce Rainnie is doing a good job on Compass. Prediction: within 36 months, I will be the only person left on PEI calling the supper hour newscast Compass.
