Giraldo seemed like he was constantly on the cusp of getting huge. He would regularly get a pilot, that would then fail, but it just seemed like statistically one of those projects was going to eventually work and he would go nuclear thereafter. Or maybe his fate really was to "just" be a comic's comic, beloved by his peers and always working but never hitting the stratosphere in terms of profile.

Long fascinates...

Since I started the WILLOW thread I guess I will say that, although it's really not a bad movie so much as a thoroughly derivative one, and a movie need not be defined by its unoriginality if it possesses other strengths. My left-field submission is NOTHING BUT TROUBLE. A colossal misfire, yes, but boy does it go all in.
