Cool Shit 5/27

I get that remakes are big business because it guarantees name recognition but seriously, this new version of Point Break obviously has no idea what made the original work. And that's a shame, because I do think a remake is possible, and I do think it could work with the extreme sports that they have shoehorned in here in order to attract a younger audience. As an aside, the guy playing Bodhi? That's just not going to work.

Read a firsthand account of the last Letterman show from one of the writers.

It used to be that summer was a wasteland for television, but that's not the case these days. The season is warming up with new shows.
